OK OK so I made a rush to judgment about DFH on the forum. a thousand apologies. sampled this at Piccadilly’s in Champaign. even though I am not much of a hop head, this is a very fine beer.

lamas (1340) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 18, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2005 Bottle. Pour is dirty orangish/gold with small off-white head that leaves some lace and tons of little floaties. Aroma is of hops, oranges and grapefruits. Taste is hoppy and orangey with a little honey and lemon but not as bitter as I would’ve hoped. A quality beer but definitely a disappointment compared to the 90 Minute IPA which was fuller and packed more punch. This one leaves something to be desired...like 30 more minutes.

Thanks to Wawood for this one! Murky orange-gold white head pour. Laces wonderfully. Aroma of candi sugar and baklava, wheatgrass and barbershop (barbasol, cheap aerosol mousse, and other hairdressing astringents). Flavor is sweet fig, toffee, caramel, honey, and mead. Hop on top and finish, obviously. Mouthfeel is thicker than I expected, rather pleasant. Crisp, clean, solid.

BT (123) - Westchester, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Poured honey-gold brown, tiny bubbles, little head, but rich and creamy thin layer that remained steady throughout. Aroma of citrus hops, slightly sweet. Palate is bold and sharp but balanced well for a smooth biting finish. Flavor full of hops

I was disappointed. After an awesome experience with the 90 minute, I expected more. Don’t get me wrong, this is a great hopsy beverage, but I expected more bitterness and more complexity. Ah well, I’ll settle for a great IPA. Thanks, Dogfish.

Excellent hoppy citrus aroma, dark amber in color with creamy off white head. Initial flavor is sweet grapefruit and did I mention the aroma is awesome...The finish is a bit stronger and longer than I like, but this is a GREAT IPA! I might still taste this one in the morning.

very sweet fresh hop aroma, citrus hops. Clean hop taste, not overly crisp, good floral hops up front, and a mild dry finish.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - FEB 14, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2007 Re-rate- Clear golden color, white thin head. Nose is strong grapefruit and citrus notes. Not alot of malt prescense. The hops shine through. American hops shine through and dominate the palate, drying the beers mouthfeel out. Pine and citrus notes are most of it, a little ethanol on the finish. Nice session IPA. Pours a golden orange color, small white head. Aroma is very nice, of grapefruits and lemons, hoppy and citrusy. Flavor is sweet and hoppy. Lots of citrus flavors, and a slightly dry finish. 7-3-7-3-15

This is about as good as it gets. I love IPA’s and this is Excellent. I like it more and more with every bottle. It actually tasted like I was chewing on a Hop. Thinner than 90min and different but just as good in a different way. On tap at a local bar, I actually like the bottle better. Looses a little bite on tap. You know its good when your buddy tries one for the first time and his face just cringes because of the hoppyness and asks you what the hell you are thinking. Unreal stuff.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2008 Hazy amber, moderate head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma is PNW with some English hop notes. Typical east coast style.
