3.78/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Had on-tap at The Local Miami. Poured into the newly designed Spiegelau glass.

A- Pours a medium amber with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains quite a while before reducing to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Nice sheet of resilient lacing.

S- Sweet, almost cotton candy like aroma with some hops trickling in at the end. Can't figure out if the sweetness is coming from the malt or what.

T- More sweetness of the honey variety with some hop bitterness in the finish that's mild but lingers. Decently balanced but that honey sweetness is out of place. Alcohol is nicely hidden but there could be more hop flavor

M- A bit sharp with medium carbonation and a middle-of-the-road body.

O- So I guess every new beer DFH puts out is gonna have some amount of this honey/white grape sweetness just like Midas Touch, Chateau Jiahu, Noble Rot, etc. That's fine if you enjoy it, but I say keep it out of the IPAs. I'm not as let down as I thought I'd be based on other reviews, but I'm also not having it again or recommending it. I will say the glass is pretty neat though.

3.88/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

750ml. Capped bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter. Bottled on 1/25/13 (~1 month old).

Pours out a clear fairly deep golden color with a slight orange hue. A nice full off white colored rocky head off the pour that eventually fades to a thick retentive layer leaving some good lacing behind.

Not quite the big hop aroma i was hoping for, but whats there is interesting to say the least. melon like fruits, grape juice, dry lemon citrus, some light bready malts and just a hint of alcohol comes through as it warms and accentuates the melon/ grape wine like hops nicely.

Hops again give off flavors of melon like fruits, grapes, white wine like, and maybe a bit floral. A bit of bready malt tries to balance, but the hops really dominate. Almost has a hoppy, resinous, tartness if that makes sense? Finishes with some nice dry lingering bitterness.

Medium bodies, good feeling carbonation, some hop resin, slightly drying.

A very interesting tasting hop, very unique. Maybe not the best IPA, there's definatly room for improvement, but much better than last years life and limb. DFH IMO really has some nice malt flavors in there IPAs that blend nicely with the hops, this is seen here to an extent. A worthy collab.

4.03/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving Type - 25.4 oz bottle

Appearance - Golden yellow/orange, nie 4+ inch creamy, foamy head and lots of lacing.

Smell - Lemon, light floral hops, apple, grapes, piney, a little grassy/bready. SOme caramel and yeasts also.

Taste - Orange and pine at first sip. Not as straight up bitter hoppy as it is malty and floral hoppy flavored. Lemon and grapes also make up alot of the flavor. Has a caramel malty flavor, along with a grassy/herbal note. A little alcohol comes up near the finish.

Mouthfeel - Its rather mild on the mouth. Hops and malts coat the tounge, sweeten it and leave lots of fruits. Palate gets more of the same, with some alcohol warmth. Aftertaste is malty and sweet.

Overall - Decent, Much sweeter and malty then i expected. Very drinkible and smooth. A different approach to a dipa, the bravo hop im guessing is adding this flavor. Worth a drink for sure.

On tap at The Tavern On Liberty in PA...
For the appearance, it's a brilliantly clear golden color, with a fluffy, white head of foam. Superb lacing throughout the drinking experience. The aroma took me by surprise slightly with the level of maltiness and fruit esters. Upon tasting, I picked out what seemed to be a Concord grape flavor, as well as a very grainy/doughy aspect. The beer almost struck me as an APA at first, to be honest. That's not to imply that anything is wrong here. It's initial mouth feel is very full & juicy, but then it gives way to a very crisp, dry , and bitter finish. That's where the hops truly kick in and shine. Overall, this is an excellent and unique East-Coast style IPA. Looking forward to finding out more about this new hop variety as well. For fans of Two-Hearted and Resin.

4/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

750ml bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.

A: Clear brassy amber color. Two fingers of bone-white creamy head retains very well and leaves a network of web-like lacing in its wake.

S: Fruity and floral hop aromas. Wildflowers, delicate pithy and green scents, and mango puree. Apricot and cantaloupe. Soft, earthy touch of pine. Hints of pineapple esters. Equally prevalent wheaty and bready smells and a touch of honeyed granola make for a rather balanced nose.

T: Bitter herbal hops greet the palate. Leafy and earthy, green and planty. Juicy melon and melon rind tastes burst onto the tongue. Bitterness builds but never quite becomes aggressive. Candied, bubblegum sweetness. Honeyed bread. Hops lend peppery and herbal spice toward the end, as does a slight kick of alcohol. Tropical esters come out more as the beer warms. Dry wheat on the finish with fading earthy and melon-like hop tastes.

M: Medium-thick body. Creamy and very filling and round in the mouth. Light, tingling carbonation. Some hop astringency. Nice mouthfeel.

O: This is not at all the beer I was expecting, but that's not a bad thing. Lots of hop flavor at play, but the perceived bitterness falls shy of the hop-nuke I thought it would be. An impressive show of hop complexity.

4.1/5  rDev +12.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: A medium amber with a light orange hue and good clarity. There is a good head stand of about two fingers of sticky and somewhat rocky off-white foam. Persistant head retention.

S: A moderately-strong citrus hops aroma with a light grassy, dry-hopped note. A moderately-light caramel malt aroma and a light hint of wheat. . The typical low ale yeast easter of light orange fruitiness.

T: Quiet a unique hops flavor up front being a strong floral and somewhat citrusy in flavor. There is a moderate malt sweetness against a moderately-strong hops bitterness giving a moderately bitter balance. The finish is off-dry and the aftertaste is of hops lingering hops bitterness.

M: The wheat add a ton of body to a creamy mouthfeel. A very creamy, moderately-full bodied beer with moderately strong carbonation.

3.94/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A- Very transparent dark golden body, almost looks like honey. Huge, frothy, slightly off-white head that takes awhile to go down and leaves a ton of lacing.

S- Tons of wheat, slight pine note, fresh grass, grainy malts, unripe pear.

T- Lots of wheat, the hops are there, but not in the standard pine/citrus way. More herbal and earthy, with somewhat of a floral flavor. Really unlike any IPA I have tried before.

M- Very good feel, smooth and coating, not as crisp as some harsher IPAs. Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

O- Worth a try, but you will be dissapointed if you are looking for an IPA with a huge standard hop profile. This one is good, but in a completely different way than most IPAs.

3.08/5  rDev -15.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A-Pours a clear golden color. Big, fluffy head slowly grows from the honeyed body. Lots of foamy remnants.

S-The aroma is soft. Lots of vegetal earthy hop aromas. A bit soapy too. Definitely doesn't stress much fruit. There is also a heavy malted base. Not enamored with the aroma here.

T-Hops remind me of cooking spices. Herbs and mints and flowers. Earthy too. The hops don't work together nor do they communicate well with the malt. It tastes segmented and disjointed. I don't love the flavors imparted by the Bravo and #644 hops.

M-Drinks easy enough. Lacks the bitterness I desire. A bit sticky. Nice carbonation.

O/D-Two of the Big Boy craft breweries combine to make one boring brew. Odd beer

3/5  rDev -17.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

750 ml bottle with bottled-on date ($11.99). Nice label artwork. I had no frame of reference going into this tasting other than the label blurb. Poured into a tulip glass.

Looked good - golden-amber, bright white head. I couldn't pick up much on the nose save for some of the grain bill. Taste is remarkably subtle. A very "soft" feel all around, with an unidentifiable bitterness. Some mineral, a lot of wheat, but no distinguishable hop profile. Mouthfeel was viscous, with no carbonation seen after the pour.

All in all, a unique beer, definitely an atypical IPA, but not something I would buy again.

3.53/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass
A: Pure orange color with a solid two-finger head that slowly settles to a thick lacing
S: Fairly typical IPA nose of citrus/pine up front with a solid caramel backbone. Pleasant but nothing special
T: There's a distinct apple cider component on the initial attack, followed by some lemon/lime soda characteristics then the citrus hops & malt base right at the very end. I will say this tastes fairly good as a malt beverage but not necessarily what I'm expecting in a Dogfish/Sierra Nevada collaboration beer
M: Light-bodied overall, crisp & balanced
O: I've got to call a spade a spade... for a DFH/Sierra Nevada collaboration, I expected A) a lot more from SN on the label- if you didn't read it closely, you'd never know this is a SN collaboration and B) a lot more of that West Coast hop profile. As is this has potential and tastes alright but at $12 /btl I certainly would not get it again and am far from impressed with the hop/malt blend this purportedly brings to the table

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

Pours a clear golden orange with a tight, frothy white head that leaves big chunks of lacing.

Smells of citrus hops with a fruit undertone.

Tastes of sweet malts upfront layered on top of some underlying hops. Malts lead off with some caramel and fruit notes that has a little syrupy feel to it. Malts fade into some hops with pine, citrus, and some tropical fruits. Ends with a little bit of wheat coming through and adding some sharp notes.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is all over the place, and I wish they didn't try to do so much with it. Add in the price ($13.70 for a 750 mL) and we get an average beer.

3.85/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottled On: 01/28/13

A: Pours a golden yellow color with 2 fingers of head that recedes to a finger and retains at that for a while

S: Lots of fruity floral notes from the hops along with a touch of wheat and caramel malts. Alcohol undetectable

T: Lacking a bit from the nose, but still packs quite the bitter punch you'd expect from a DIPA. Mostly floral hops, with a touch of fruit. Malts lend a hint of sweetness that is quickly overcome by the bitterness of the bravo hops. Any hint of alcohol is covered up by the bitterness as well

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: If the fruitiness that was present in the nose followed through into the taste, this would be much better. I feel like most of the flavor comes from the malts instead of the hops, which shouldn't be the case in an IPA. Not bad, but not what I expected from these 2 great breweries that are known for their hops and IPAs

Dogfish Head Rhizing Bines is floral, metallic, and bubbly.

It poured very light copper with cascading bubbles and a two-finger short-lived bubbly white head. A couple of thin rings of lace clung near the top of the glass. It was too light and bubbly for an IIPA. There was a touch of flower in the aroma; however it was dominated by metallic yeast. The flavor was also floral with a touch of honey-like sweetness and pine overpowered by an overwhelming metallic finish. The after-taste was rather unpleasant; like sucking a dirty penny. Not that I've ever done that. Its presence in the mouth was thin and fleeting, lacking the bitterness of an IPA, let alone an IIPA.

It killed me to kill Rhizing Bines here, but judged strictly as an Imperial IPA, it is below average in each category. I wasn't enthused about finishing the bomber. Bring back Squall, Dogfish; now that's an Imperial IPA.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip pint.

Appearance
Golden amber with 2 fingers of off-white head. Moderate-heavy carbonation with excellent clarity and good retention.

Nose
Apple juice, lemon, raw grains and wheat.

Taste
Red delicious apple juice, lemon, honeydew melon and butternut squash. Bubblegum, wheat and caramelized grain. Quite grainy. Rather strange and earthy.

Mouthfeel
Full bodied, oily, sticky and silky.

Overall
Ummmm..WTF?? Must be that new #644 hop?? Absolutely not worth $15 of my money. I'm sorry Sierra Nevada got involved in this one. DO NOT BUY!

m: medium body, bit sticky.

o: More sweet than I had expected. Very drinkable. Not sure if the melon flavored fruitiness is coming from these styles of hops. Something different which I appreciate but I don't think it's worthy of the price tag (~12.99).

4.15/5  rDev +13.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Poured from a bomber. Darker than straw. I get a couple inches of head that lingers through the experience.

Smell: Malt dominates the smell. Sweet and wet hay.

Taste: The hops come through, here, especially as the beer warms, and these appear particularly in the aftertaste. I wish that the hops were more present in the first taste.

Mouthfeel: oily and thick. I like this, especially.

Overall: a good beer, but I paid fourteen bucks and I don't think it lives up to the sticker price. Maybe my expectations were too high given the breweries involved and the price.

750 ml bottle, bottled on 1/25/13. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours a clear amber color with about an inch frothy off-white head that stayed around for a long time. There's also a lot of lacing. Aroma is on the light side, it smells like herbal, pine and citrusy hops, grainy malt, nuts and an earthy aroma. I had to let this brew sit out a while for the aroma to open up more. It tastes like herbal/grassy hops, wheat/grainy malt, nuts, light citrusy hops, sweet malt and some melon (honeydew). Finish is more sweet than bitter. It's an interesting tasting beer, and I'm liking it more the longer I drink it. There's good balance between the hops and malt in this brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit creamy and coating with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this brew, I think it's definitely worth trying. $11.99 a bottle.

Shared with rudzud.

Big foamy creamy almost 2 finger head fades slowly with lots of soapy lacing, big bubbles, clear honey orange color.

Nose interesting and unique hops, light musty resin, fairly grassy herbal leafy, light spicy and very light citrus and little fruity, candy sweet malts, caramel, earthy like almost saison earthy, little booze with hint of phenols, hint pine syrup and what almost seems like hop extract, earthy hops, has that typical various time hopped characteristics from dfh.

Taste syrupy and spruce tree pine to start. Pine resin, sap, etc, earthy hops, very light citrus bit fruity too. Big sweet malts, bit of caramel, candy malts and even candy hops, little oily, light grainy malts and wheat flavors, touch biscuit. Fairly bitter but not a lot, little salty from the hops too. Finish is sticky syrupy, long lingering fairly bitter but piney oily light citrus.

Mouth is med to a bit fuller bodied, decent carb, very light booze, little oily.

Overall not very good, weird pine sap and oily but light citrus and sweet syrupy malts blend to a very meh flavor. Not a big winner in my book, just the wrong hop flavors and wrong overall combined characteristics, esp for a DFH and Sierra Nevada collab.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a clear, medium golden amber with a nice two finger white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, light stone and tropical fruit, only a hint of hops. Flavor is unusual, light stone fruit, light citrus, caramel malt, tropical fruit, piney hops. Very nice medium to heavy body with pleasant creaminess, surpising body for an IPA. Flavors are so well integrated that they are hard to identify, but blend together into a unique but distinctly IPA flavor. Finishes with the malt body fading away and revealing nice citrus and pine hops. Not as aromatically intense as a lot of west coast IIPAs, but still having an intense hops presence and hoppy finish. I enjoyed the hell out of this is an unusual and well integrated IIPA that is worthy of two great breweries. Not for IPA fans who prefer hops over malt; this is malty, but well balanced.

Thanks to jlindros for sharing.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a crystal clear honey hue with a one finger head that leaves very nice lacing and a nice halo.

S - Aromas of a pine sap resin dipa. Very unique aromas here good earthy notes and a solid malt back bone. Not bad.

T - Taste is more spruce tree than say, bubble gum but this is strange. The hop profile...I got nothing. Sweetness and some earth but the hop notes just confuse me greatly.

M - Mouthfeel is good for a dipa with nice carbonation. Lightly crisp.

O - Overall this beer confused me. The hop notes of fruity but not quite and Lindy but not tree just throws me for a curve. Do not want!

I had this on tap at the Ginger Man (review taken from notes).

The bar served this in a smaller snifter glass.

There was no real foam on this one over a light brown coloring.

The smell is pretty light. I get a little fruitiness, and that is about it.

The flavor is bitter up front. The flavor is a lot like an english pale. Overall a pretty good beer.

Poured from the bottle into an official Dogfish Head Ale glass.

A real nice super bronze and super crystal clear body, with some large cola like bubbles sticking to the edges of the glass. Head makes an easy four finger with an off white color, and a soapy like retention. As it settles, slow rising carbonation comes up just a little bit, lots of scattered like lacing, real nice looking beer.

An incredibly soft bouquet, and this very soft aromatic citrus grapefruit. It's pillow, toned down and very subtle. Herbal tea like action mixing in with the hop front.

Never had an Ipa taste like this before. Toned down juicy fruit, with an interesting crisp malt sense. Hop hits of orange and marmalade and citrus. Finish has an interesting toasty quality. Very controlled mix of bitterness and sweetness on the finish.

Overall it's a real interesting take on an IPA, with a real sort of mish mash of Enligsh herbality, and a hint of citrus American hop profiles. Very light and toasty crisp too. Very easy drinking, and also memorable.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. White head, moderate retention on a clear golden body. Aroma includes tangerine, tangelo, mango, papaya, some sweetness...like a fruity, pulpy, mongoey sweetness. Taste includes much of the same, with a nice bitterness and background sweetness. Alcohol is well hidden. Not really picking up the wheat but picking up notes of a lavender of sorts. Is this an flavor from a new hop? Not sure. Interesting flavors and quite tasty beer.
