This beer has been hailed as the best IPA in America, so we thought we had better give it a try. In addition to the raisin and plum notes in the nose, the strong resin character and deep amber color are a dead giveaway that this beer is going to be a full experience. It might not be a beginner's brew, but if you know what to expect, this Dogfish Head IPA is incredible. Amazingly smooth for such a strong brew, this IPA has impressions of sherry and cognac with a strong hop flavor and bitterness. Enjoy it responsibly, but enjoy it often.
