1 Pint 9.4 oz bottle in a pint glass.
This beer pours with a rather hazy deep gold color, looks like 10 SRM. It has a nice thick puffy head, 2-3 fingers, slowly falls leaving a fairly dense lacing all around. Some light visible carbonation streaming here and there. Looks pretty appetizing overall. As the beer drinks the lacing stays very strong and dense throughout while the heads doesn't quite maintain.
The nose is very floral with light notes of orange and lemon, plenty of lemon.. Certainly a light level of malt sweetness that hides very well behind the hop barrage. Seems to get a little maltier further down the glass and the hop bitterness hits on a different strength, just a little more mellow. Maybe it's the 10.0% ABV kicking in.
The mouthfeel is relatively medium, lightly crispy and very bitter around the edges. Stays very strong on the palate throughout the finish and has a decent warming; I would have imagined. A fine beer, glad I tried it, though I won't seek it out later.

Gotta say....love the artwork.
Huge white foam with a nice bright amber/copper colored ale.
Aroma has a lot of malt present with light lemon whiffs in the background. Wishing for more.
Taste was pretty good. I am getting more of the lemon on the swallow with nice hoppiness playing around with the malt.
Good amount of carbonation on each swallow, bit not overly.
Overall I was intrigued by the artwork and my man-love for DFH. Unfortunately I was not totally impressed with this offering. I was hoping for more hops and zest but was met with a bigger dose of malt. The lemons didn't make that much of an appearance to the party either. I did like reading the label though.
