Pours a copper color with a well enough head. Aroma definitely contains citrusy hops, plus the lemon is evident and a good dose of malt. The flavor is immediately sweet then the hop goodness kicks in on the midpalate and it finishes sticky with the lemon twang leaving a bad medicinal note, something like a cough drop. Besides being typically overly malty for Dogfish Head, the bready alcoholic lemon finish just ruins this for me. Mouthfeel is fine in regards to viscosity and carbonation but the bad finish generally drags it down. Overall this is quite a mediocre brew.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
