eaglefan538 (3032) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 4, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 A pretty big head that laced well. This one was golden-amber in color and had an aroma that was rather hoppy (go figure, DFH IPA). Flavor was good but not complex: some grapefruit, but mostly floral and very light pine. Malt base underneath was somewhat earthy and slightly nutty. More character than the Shelter, but I’d take the 90 over this ANY day, as this one doesn’t stand out among the plethora of everyone-and-their-grandomother’s IPA.

Very nice lighter-orange coloured IPA. Perhaps one of the better that I have had in the last couple of years, along with the 90 Minute version. The initial taste is bitter, the aftertaste sweet...an intriguing combination.

timtheenchanta (70) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Beautiful pale clear liquid with a large initial head. Thin head stays on top. Thick lacing down the glass. Huge sweet citric hop nose. Very toasty smell as well. HOPS. Big citrus hops taste. Slight doughy toasted malt taste. Very dry finish with good bitterness. This IPA is worth all of the hype. This might be my favorite to date. Pick this one up if you get the chance.

Salsgebom (20) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2006
Pours light orange with a white head that diminishes to lacing- very similar to the 90 minute. A collage of hop flavor, mostly citrus. Bitter to the pallate with lingering sweetness from flavor hops. Quite unbalanced. More malt to the same hop profile would be much more pleasing. An over-rated IPA in my opinion.

Powerful citrusy bitter aroma. Fluffy head, orangy clear. Flavorful hops but Very drinkable.

Gus (29) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2006
Very intense hop aroma, somewhat of a citrusy smell. The appearance is a moderately to medium gold in color. High hop flavor is evident with citrusy overtones. Definate medium/high hop bitterness, but does not linger with aftertaste. Moderate to high carbonation with a medium tan color head that dissapates when drinking. A full bodied tasting beer, one of my favorites, will continue to drink thsi one.

hiphoppy (6) - USA - MAY 29, 2006 does not count
Copper color with a suttle white head. Light aroma. Little grapefruit upfront with a sweeter citrus finish. Very drinkable. Probably one of my favorite IPA’s.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2006
12 oz bottle. This is pretty! Clear pink-orange with lots of clingy bubbles. Airy white head is quickly sipped away. Little lacing. Nose is quite mild grapefruit and brown sugar. Begins like a flat club soda then turns to just sweet citrus and some lemon. Dry hops build in the end. Medium body, a little carb, some resins. My lips taste good. Nicely balanced; never overwhelming. A stepped down 90 to an extent but really its own beer. Effortless drinking.

after4ever (7619) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2006
12-ounce bottle. Pours a bronzed amber with a filmy trace of white head. Dusty and bready on the nose. Nice soft round dry hop character--nothing overwhelming, but pronounced and delicious. Full body but not thick or heavy; occasional rising bubbles. Refreshing and drinkable. It’s nice to find a well-made IPA that doesn’t have to be measured in megatons.

Ibrew2or3 (8207) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2006 Clear golden to copper color with weak white head. Just out of the frig I get almost no aroma. Flavor is what the smell of a flower pedal would taste like. Interesting. The taste is a combo of floral and spicy hops. Nice malt backbone behind the hop flavor. There is also some hop bitterness that bookends the swilling experience. Even after the beer reached room temp there was hardly a trace of an aroma. Nice IPA though. Not quite my favorite.
