pours a clearish amber orange with a thick white head. Aroma is faint grass and citrus. Taste is clean then slightly bitter. No real citrus presence. Creamy mouth feel. Not much linger. ok.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/9/2014. Pours lightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, honey, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, honey, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange zest, pine, caramel, honey, toasted biscuit, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, balance, and robustness of citrus/earthy hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good American IPA. All around good complexity, balance, and robustness of citrus/earthy hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. This seemed to have some English style influence in flavors, but still felt like an American IPA overall. A nicely enjoyable offering.

One of my favorite beers.
Its a sustain-er for me and i could probably drink it all night at social gatherings. In fact, I've done that on many occasions.

A: Pours amber to gold with a slight haze. 2” off-white foam collar hugs the glass producing excellent lace.
S: Floral, spice, pine, grapefruit, light malts.
T: Starts with light fruit and some caramel flowing into a grapefruit bitterness and dries out on the finish.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation to slightly above medium
O: An easy drinking India pale ale that that blends Brittish and North American qualities.

My first beer poured into the new Spiegelau Dogfishhead IPA glasses so was looking forward to the experience. A - slightly hazy amber in the glass with a head that diminished but I think the glass was very effective in replenishing it after every sip. S - aroma had a bit of happiness in there but I was surprised at how much fruitiness was coming through. T - taste follows the smell and again the amount of sweet fruity flavours seemed a bit atypical for the style. Slightly dry hoppy finish but I probably would have appreciated a bit more. Alcohol level is pretty well disguised. M - decent carbonation and mouthfeel but nothing interesting to report. M - decent beer but there are many better IPAs around so I probably wouldn't feel inclined to have it again.
