Tasted Christmas morning (I know, don't judge) with family and grandparents throughout Christmas breakfast and present opening. Monte and I split it because it is one of the few Dogfish that he hasn't had. The label of this beer is absolutely gorgeous! Served cold in a wine glass.
Mouthfeel: After allowing the beer to finally sit and mellow, the beer gives a subtle carbonated finish, leaving the palate dry but very refreshed. Body is medium but there is a leftover tackiness to the lips. Ironically, I would even say the feel is salty.
Overall Impression: An interesting beer, nevertheless the dry resin grassiness left on the palate is somewhat deterring. I do however really enjoy the complexity of fruit and hop interaction that acquaints this beer. I really like the combination between Pilsner and IPA giving, for the most part the best of both worlds. The body and hop citrus from an IPA and the pungent light crispness of a pilsner. Nice.
