3.43/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a Dogfish Head Signature glass.

A - Pours a sunburst orange with two fingers of light tan-colored head. Retention is great as it lasts for ages afterward. The lacing is nice as well with shimmering curtains of foam streaming down the glass.

S - The aroma has a bit of caramel malt backbone but for the most part it is all hops. Fresh pine and juicy citrus grapefruit flood the nose.

T - The taste has more malt than the nose exhibited, but it gives the beer a nice support. It has a lingering caramel flavor that lasts well into the finish. The hops come in shortly after the initial wave of flavor, and they are quite bitter. In fact, the bitterness tends to shroud the pine and citrus, which are somewhat muted as a result. Long, bitter finish with malty overtones.

M - Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with good carbonation. The hops are somewhat sticky and leave a distinct impression on the palate.

D/O - Drinkability is moderate. While the appearance and nose were highly enjoyable, the bitterness of the hops were a bit much for the taste. While still possible to get the hop flavor, the bitterness really took it down a notch.
