Reviewed from notes. Part of a H24 tasting at WF Venice.

A: Poured from a bomber bottle a slightly hazed orange with a 1" thick white head which left spots of lace.

N: Juicy tropical and citrus hops, slight sweetness, floral, faint pine.

T: Caramel malts, mildly sweetish honey notes, citrus and pine.

M: Medium body and moderate carbonation. Finishes with some bitterness and mildly sweet malts.

O: A big DIPA that packs a punch. Loads of hops and balanced by some honey sweetnees. Make sure it's fresh.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a Dogfish Head signature glass.

A: Two fingers of rich, tight head. Hazy orange-gold. Good lacing.

S: Boring-flat hops. This beer might be old(ish). Tangerine. Orange peel.

T: Oh yum. Very orange-citrus forward, with intense, herbal-citric bitterness. The honey smooths things out just a bit without being obvious. Citrus is sweet, tangy, sharp, sour, and bitter. I like it a LOT. The body is full and carbonated.

O: Delicious DIPA. Sweet and bitter and strong. Loads of orange peel here. Would have again.

This beer, recommended by our server, did not disappoint in the slightest. It poured a beautiful honeyed-orange color, with a frothy head and lacing along the glass. Aromas of pine, fresh cut grass and citrus rose to the nose. On the palate, the highend hops were present. It was appropriately bitter and balanced. Overall, based on this one experience, I'd rate this beer up there with the top DIPA's I've tried. Yes, in other words, I came to Cali looking for Pliny on tap and "ended up with this". Gun to head, blind folded, I don't think I'd have been able to tell the difference. I'll be looking for this again to see if the notes are consistent the second time around. Kudos to Hangar 24, whoever you are.
