Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. No freshness date.
A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before makings its way down to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves large clots behind.
S- Lovely burst of tropical fruit and a bit of sugary malt. Notes of mango, papaya and peach.
T- Flavor isn't quite as excellent. The high bitterness kind of downplays the tropical fruit tastes but it still works. Resinous hops are continuously assertive on the palate. Notes of grapefruit, pineapple and grass.
M- Sharp and bitey from the hops. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.
O- This is for IPA lovers only which I certainly am but this was almost too bitter for even me. Though not very balanced, it has a terrific aroma and pretty much everything I look for in a great IPA.
