The color of this beer is gold with a hint of amber. The aroma is slightly sweet, perhaps a hint of honey. Taste is full and strong, hoppy and refreshing. I love this beer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden color with a nice sized white head. Initial aroma is a cross between burn grain and a mild roasted coffee following quickly with pine needles and a bit of citrus. Taste is very good with large amounts of citrus and pine from the hops which are kept in balanced by a slight bit of malt. Beer is medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Finish is a little weak compared to other IPAís. All and all this is a great solid IPA and Iím glad I finally got to taste it!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From Bottle. Golden amber pour with a nice white head that quickly diminishes to a soapy ring around the edges of my glass. Lightly citrus aroma with a sappy cedar cone note and some rye cracker. Medium bodied, with a nice clean, creamy carbonation. Surprisingly gentle flavors of caramel malts that precedes its hoppy side. The hops are well rounded and smooth, leaving a refreshing smack of blue spruce on my palate. This is a much better example than a sample I had in a previous un-rated tasting. Thanks, Bert!

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2006 Great IPA. Pours a nice honey color with a thin white head. Hoppy, grapefruity aroma. Super drinkable and rightfully hoppy with a clean, bitter finish. Itís a good everyday version of its big brothers.

I was lucky enough to try this while i was in Florida. Great flavor, although a little lacking. Aroma and color were fantastic. A beer that everyone should try.

This is a great IPA. This is one of the best IPAs from the east coast. DFH is one of my top 5 favorite breweries. This one has a nice herbal hop flavor and is very drinkable for an IPA. This and the 90 have been in my fridge quite a bit.
