AleBorland83 was kind enough to bring this up to Brooklyn for my birthday straight from the source in Delaware. We opened it in early August and poured it into two tulip glasses. It poured an amber/orange color with a thick head. The beer smelt exactly like a typical IPA, not that that is a bad thing. Some floral notes but mostly citruses like lemon and even lime. The taste unfortunately was average. It was like a flavor was missing. Decent, almost like a different version on 60 Min but with a creamy taste. Some malt backbone I guess.
Overall, I was wanting to love this beer from two great breweries but the beer was extremely tame. Decent, but expensive.

Very heavy beer with an orangish look to it. Very good retention with a lot left over on the sides after beer is gone.

Almost tastes a little skunky, not very IPA-y at all. The malt is too overpowering and I prefer a much crisper taste. It drinks much more like a belgian than an IPA.

Finger plus of foam, frothy and dimpled, all kinds of bubble sizes yet dense overall, creamy white in color, excellent retention, the lacing is thick and covers the glass sides in sheets which pretty much refuse to budge. Faint dullness to the yellow to orange rust colored liquid, there’s some fine particulate floating about inside which may explain this, the bubbles are few and far between and tiny enough to perhaps miss, that said it does capture light within it well so there’s a warm glow. Thick and heavy nose dripping with pine sap, orange and grapefruit juice, molasses and caramelized brown sugar, peach, apricot to pineapple fruit and a substantial floral dimension, for interplay there’s a touch of pepper and lemongrass, clings more than extends. In the mouth it is full-bodied, sappy, viscous and resinous. Pine, molasses, caramel hard candy and challah bread combine with the more sweet than sour pink grapefruit, tangerine citrus for a friendly mouth entry. The carbonation tends to fluff and soften which takes some of the kick out of the pineapple, papaya, nectarine, peach fruit. Grassy but not green, the maltiness lacks clear character but anchors it in an undifferentiated, homogeneous fashion. Easy to drink even as it makes you think it is more complicated than it really is, this being part of the genius of Dogfish Head.
