Notes/Commercial Description:
This formidable India Pale Ale has a hop aroma that demands attention. The bold, citrus hop flavor is balanced by a dry malt character making this refreshing ale a true classic.

3.48/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from the bottle into a Dogfish Head Ale glass.

A soapy three finger off white head that falls slowly, tan and off colored white with some decent lacing. Body color is a light copper amber with hints of orange and some visible carbonation. Fairly solid looking brew.

Mild floral and herbal hop pent, soft tea like aromatics on the nose. Not much else, almost Lipton iced tea smelling with no malt presence.

Quite a fairly wet palate on first sip, with not much filling the flavor in the mid palate. Hop angle seems muted, but does have some herbal and grass like tastes. AFtertaste brings most of the flavor, with a light toasted slightly browned grain like aroma and matching tea like hops.

Overall it's not that great but there's far worse you could be experiencing in this beer realm.
