"Rhizing Bines is a collaborative IPA using the best of both coasts: Carolina-grown red fife wheat and Dogfish Head's continual-hopping from the East and Sierra Nevada's estate-grown caramel malt and Torpedo dry-hopping from the west." Brewed in the style of an American Imperial Pale Ale with two experimental hops, Bravo and #644. A one-off collaboration between Dogfish head and Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, this beer was released in early 2013 and available in 750 ml. bottles.

Poured from a 750 ml. bottle to a Sierra Nevada tulip glass. Served above 46º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a creamy frothed cream white head over a hazy orange amber body with moderate pulpy sediment. Retention is excellent, lacing is moderate and patchy. 4.5

(Smell) Hop aromas of tropical fruit and pineapple with undertones of floral herbal notes over a light cracker and pale malt body with a touch of grainy caramel sweetness. Potency is moderate. 3.75

(Taste) Despite the clear aroma, the flavor of this beer has tanked significantly. Grainy pale and caramel malt body up front with slightly metallic and medicinal undertones are joined in the finish by a musty, peppery puff of hop flavor. The flavor did not hold up well. 2.75

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, light, slightly grainy. Carbonation is bold and spritely forming a crisp, zippy mouthfeel. Body is medium+ for the style, medium+ overall. Balance is slightly bitter over sweet. The alcohol presence is moderate and some oxidation has occurred, if not entirely due to the age of this beer. 3.25

(Overall) Don't forget about your IPAs, otherwise you might not like them as much as you had hoped. From what remains of Rhizing Bines, the malt profile is nice and light allowing for the hop profile to shine, but unfortunately I was late for the show, so there's not much to comment on in that factor. I found it drinkable, but that's not the most promising comment coming from me. I hope to get to try this in a future reincarnation. 3.25
