Was really looking forward to this as their beers are not available here in Wisconsin. Picked this up on a recent trip to N California. Sorry, it just did not do it for me. It's OK but nothing special from my perspective

Poured from a bomber into a Dogfish Head tulip, Spring 2018 release

L: Clear golden amber pour with 1 finger of fluffy white head. Falls fast... solid ring of lacing.

S: Grainy malts and piney/herbal hops.

T/F: Follows the nose. Toasted grains and light malts give way to a bitter pine/resin forward hop profile. Somewhat herbal/medicinal. Very classic 'west coast' IPA. Mild earthiness/spice. Not picking up the 'juice' that other reviewers are mentioning. Oily on the tongue... gentle pine and bitterness at the finish.

O: A solid west coast DIPA. Good flavor and bitterness... very drinkable.

On tap at Beavertown Extravaganza. Aroma has honey malt and some green apple. Taste is malty with generic earthy hops and resiny bitterness on the finish.
