Aroma: Citrussy grassy hops, pours deep gold, clear with medium white head flavor was a medium strengthed citrussy affair with a good biting bitter aftertaste. A good balance between a lighter beer with the taste of a good hoppy IPA. A perfect balance.

Thanks to gputty for this one. Pour was golden with a nice white head. Aroma was citrus and hops. Flavor was a light hop bitter with citrus notes. Body was a bit light but overall a good brew.

GPutty redeems himself for bringing Icehouse to my house by busting this out. Pours amber with a small white head. Nose is light citrus and some grasslike aromas. Fairly light hop bitter, some citrus flavors. Flavor is lightly bitter. Nice body, albeit a touch thin. I like it, but a tad light overall for my taste.

From bottle. Pours a copper/amber color with small white head. Nose is of grassy hops with a little citrus blended in. Flavor follows nose with a nice bitter finish. Body is on the light side but makes for a good everyday session beer when the 90 minute is too much.

Bottle. Large bubbled white head with a copper body beneath. Nice strong hoppy aroma. How do they do that given this is relatively low in alcohol at 6%. For 60 IBUís, this is a very well crafted brew. DFH really knows how to make excellent IPAís. Just a notch below the 90 minute version. Havenít tried the 120 minute, but would like to get my hands on that one some day.

Golden pale and crystal clear. Fluffy white head sticks around a while. Aroma is a bouquet of grapefruit, orange, pinapple. Bitterness really hits with the first sip, but its not overpowering. Just right. This is the IPA benchmark. Smooth malt perfectly balanced with pungent american hops. Oh, and I think mystery hop X is Simcoe.

Nice amber color. Aroma is full of citrus. Good citrus flavor that lingers nicely on the palate. I am a mark of this beer

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2006
Orangey amber colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is caramel, fruity and hoppy. Bready, toasty malts with a nice lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied, fresh and tasty.

outerupt (133) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2006
On tap or from 12oz bottle this one is always consistent. The amber pour develops a lovely soapy head and persistent lacing. The aroma is a glorious spectrum of hops ranging from pineapple-fruity to herbacious and pine-resinous. The mouthfeel is oily with the tingle of hop bitterness in the midpalate and at the finish balanced well with a warming syrupy malt character. One of the top American IPAs.

12 oz bottle. Golden yellow body with large white head. Aroma of grapefruit with a touch of grain. Tastes of grapefruit and hops, but there wasnít quite as much flavor as Iíd like. Palate is smooth. A nice, but not exceptional, IPA.
