This beer pours golden, and leaves a white sticky lace on the glass. As I examine the clearity of the brew it looks flawless, my first smell is very hoppy, lemon, citrus, and a floural essence. As this brew hits the palate I taste brown sugar and orange rinds, this is a great session beer one that has alot of flavor and is well crafted. I love DFH and this brew didn’t disappoint. This beer would pair well with a salty dish, such as a beer crackers (grilled pizza dough w/blue cheese and scallions) or another savory delight that has a bit of salt.

Bottle. Sampled several times during the last year at various locations, in New York and in Sweden. It looks like any IPA, with its pale, hazy orange colour. The foam is big and fluffy, white in colour. Enormously big citrusy aroma, with notes of grapes and mandarine. Flavour is very tasty and big, with notes of grapes and mandarine. Perfect balanced bitterness that lasts long without being offensive. The choice and amount of hops here seems perfect. This is an amazing IPA! And so is he logo!

Pours a golden color with large head (but I poured incorrectly). Head doesn’t matter, I was able to drink immediately. Very bitter, as an IPA should be....not my taste, but I am the dumbass that bought it. This is definitely what an IPA should taste like. If I liked the India Ales, I would definitely love this one. By the way, my scores are based on the style of beer, not my personal preference as a beer to just drink alone. This beer needs food. I would choose this with a dry meat, such as liver, that would be salted before eaten.

Just what I think of and want in an IPA. Hoppy with an oily sweet character. Don’t know what warrior hops are but the results are superb.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2008 Rerate: aroma is really toasty and biscuity, with a slightly catty and citrussy aroma, but not as catty as their higher gravity ipas. pours copperish in color with good head retention. flavor is the same as the aroma. medium bodied. alright.

Wonderfully hoppy brew with just enough alcohol to make it interesting. This beer is excellent at room temperature or slightly higher, with a gingerbread like desert.

The primary drawback of this beer is that it’s for hopheads only. While it’s not as insanely hoppy as Stone’s Ruination IPA, it does taste slightly like a floral arrangement. Of course, if you like that sort of thing... Very bitter, but again, crazier things are out there. Amber color, fairly small white head.

This is a decent IPA. Tastes a lot of grass and pine. Lots of bitterness as well. Well rounded.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2006
12 oz bottle. Amber in color with a small white head. Left some lacing on the side of my glass and there was a white ring around the edge of the beer the entire time I was drinking it. Strong piney, floral aroma. This wasnt as hoppy as other IPA’s for sure, but that doesnt mean it didnt taste great.

Bottle. Pours golden with a medium white head. Flavor is highly noticable once poured. Viney hop aroma with creamy notes and light alcohol. Flavor is crisp with floral hops and a slight creaminess. Medium mouthfeel. This is not an ’in your face hop bitterness’ apparently like people expect. This is a well rounded, balanced IPA. Great drinking!
