Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear golden amber pour with 1.5 fingers of white head. Falls fast with a nice rim of sticky lacing.

S: Grains and pine... mild citrus.

T/F: Light toasted grains and caramel malts. Sweet... balanced by a nice bitter hop profile. Tending towards evergreen/pine and herbal. Very light citrus notes towards the finish. Mostly balanced... medium bodied and sticky on the tongue.

O: A solid DIPA if not spectacular. Easy drinking... balanced and with good bitterness. Not one I'd seek out but would drink it again.

Picked-up a mixed fifteen-pack of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about twenty dollars. This is a bit of a miss for me, decent brew, but has a strange aftertaste. Would not buy again.

A really magnificent, powerful full-bodied IPA from Upstate New York. It's a classic of the genre.

Bottled on 10/10/17 (6mo. old...yikes!). Aroma is definitely stale hops. Probalby not fair to this beer. Taste is respectable, well balanced and sweet with moderate bitter. Seems decent enough. Would like to revisit when I find it fresh.

Had a pint of this on tap at 716 in Buffalo. Not a bad beer but also nothing special. My 2nd Southern Tier of the night & I've had a couple before; after this one I'm convinced S.T. can make some ok beer but at the same time they're not doing any great work craft-wise. This one has some definite hop flavour but is flawed by being overly malty and somewhat bitter despite correctly serving the DIPA name and having a nice hint of spice in the flavour department.
