It's been awhile since we've sampled a DFH beer.
This is actually a collaboration with Sierra Nevada so let's give her a whirl.
Look- A hazy amber coloring.
Smell- Really clean in the nose. Is that apple? Hmmm. No. Sweet malts perhaps.
Taste-Dry hopped balanced very well with sweet malt.
Mouth-Medium bodied. The caramel in the malt gives even more sweetness to the beer.
Overall-It's an east coast/west coast collab but it drinks like east coast
came out slightly ahead. Good dry hop flavor but definitely won't please
the "hopheads." I'm not a hophead so I appreciate the sweet malt balance
of the beer. One more ingredient would have really made it pop but as is, it's
a solid beer.
About Rhizing Bines:
Rhizing Bines is a collaborative IPA using the best of both coasts:
Carolina-grown red fife wheat and Dogfish Head’s continual-hopping from
the East and Sierra Nevada’s estate-grown caramel malt and Torpedo dry-hopping
from the west.
