Pours a hazy tea-and-orange with an extravagant fluffy head that abides. The aroma is faint, boozy, with tobacco, vanilla and, vaguely, tropical fruits. Taste: a discernible malt backbone with boatloads of bitter hops. Dried grass, or hay, tobacco, funky earth and grapefruit pith and a long, long, long bitter finish. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated and easy drinking. IMHO, Cyclope Delta is to a pale ale what an unfiltered Lucky is to a cigarette - ragged and harsh and deeply satisfying. It was gone all too quickly.

Cloudy blonde beer with a massive white head and some carbonation. Nice hoppy smell, grapefruits, watermelon, bananas, strawberries. Tastes similar to the smell, really fruity with a really good bitterness. Really nice carbonation in the mouth also. From all the "Cyclope" beers I've tried it may be my favorite so far.

Pours a hazy honey color with a big fluffy off-white head that sticks around really well, you can take bites out of it. Very good retention; loads of lacing. (4.25)

Bright citrus with hay. Grass, mint, guava, pith, hay. (3.75)

Light tropical fruits, some creamy kind of sweetness, hay, herbal/piney shellac slowly rises in the finish. (4)

Good active carbonation, medium body, resinous feel in the finish, dry, drinkable. (4)

Very good IPA. Interesting if nothing else.
This is an IPA from Dunham with two hybrid hop varieties which I have never had before. Nice to try just for that, though it is a tasty enough beer on its own.
Pours nice with a tannish color and a huge foam head. The aroma is not quite there like it is in some IPAs, but once it warms a little it comes out better. Lemon, honey, hay, mint. The flavor is similar, but maybe a little more fruity. There is a pretty resinous character to the finish. It is drinkable, though it could be a little meatier-feeling for me.
I would have it again. These are different tasting hops and this is a different tasting IPA. I like that Dunham is starting to do beers like this with more frequency and more availability. (4.25)
