Pour at Independence Beer Garden in Philly. Bitterness was fine. Hop flavor - little if any, a little fruity and resinous. More nuttiness from the Malt. Out of Balance.
Maybe I got an old keg but this was ok at best.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Bottleneck says 140808.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Fragrant hop aroma with a sweet malt presence that's also a bit bready. The synthesis of the two is very pleasant.

T- The sweetness of the malt blends with the hop flavors that are also kind of sweet and somewhat earthy. The bitterness is there and lingers a bit but is rather restrained. So very easy to drink for the ABV. It almost begs to be called a session beer.

M- Slightly oily with a mild tingle from the medium carbonation. Body leans toward the lighter side.

O- Everything about this beer says "subtlety." It's hoppy, but not overly so. The malt presence is sweet but in a rounded way that plays off the hops damn near perfectly. The ABV is such that it gets the job done but not overdone. Smooth, simple, effective. As far as non-intense IPAs go, this one is my favorite. Could drink it all day, every day.
