Poured a wonderful orangish hue with an off white head that leaves sheets of lacing down glass and legs to boot.

A muted hop aroma with a nice bready maltiness that is pleasing.

Well, the muted aroma is not inline with the flavor. Tropical fruit the likes of pineapple papaya mango with some melon quality as well. Nice toasty malt in the back ground.

medium bodied BIG brew that goes down like a pale ale, hides the booze and deceives.

Enjoy as this is a once off.

A: Pours a deep golden orange color that begins with a 2 finger head but tapers to a small lace. leave a nice lace on the glass as it disappears

S: super hoppy with light malt presence. hops are a citrus to piney smell

T: Follows the nose. big hop to start with a light bready malt in the middle. finished with a strong pine like hops at the end. aftertaste continues with the hops

M: medium feel with a consistent carbonations that sustains through the drink

O: a good beer with a huge hop presence. overall there is very little malt presence in the drink. it's a good beer to try and i would buy again. the piney hops tends to linger into the aftertaste but its overall a good beer.

Growler from Hop City, poured into a tulip glass.

A: Pours crystal clear with white head. Beautiful golden light color -- looks like cider. (5.0)

S: Delicate, floral aroma. Some sweetness, but not a malty sweetness. (5.0)

T: The hops hit you first, as you would expect at 100+ IBU. They're in-your face, but not overwhelming. After the first impression of hops, you quickly note the alcoholic warmth and the hint a fruit. It's rich, and while on the sweet side, balances well with the bitterness and heat. (5.0)

M: Thick and sweet. (4.0)

D: The most amazing thing about this beer is how drinkable it is at 10% and 100+ IBU. The Dogfish 120 min is a beer that you should try once, but I probably wouldn't buy again. Green Bullet on the other hand I could drink all night (actually I couldn't but I wish I could), and I will be buying it again. Highly recommended, I hope that this becomes a regular release. (5.0)

Edit: After reading some of the other reviews, if you're expecting an IPA, or even a DIPA, you'll be disappointed. This is a different beer altogether, and there's not much to compare it to. As I said above, the DFH 120 is a valid comparison, beyond that, this is closer to a lighter, hoppy barleywine than to an IPA.
