"Pours a golden straw color with a medium to large white head. left nice lacing on the glass. Found this to be more sweet than the 90 min. Medium mouthfeel. DFH should make this their all around beer. Very refreshing."

The best IPA I have had so far. This beer was worth the extra cash I paid for it. Nice dark orange color with dominant hops taste and aftertaste. A premium beer without a doubt.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2006 Re-rate. Not impressed with this. The smell is not there. Too nutty and malty. Thought I hadnít had it, so bummed that I got it again, since I couldíve tried a different one from them.
First rating 8,4,8,3,16. pretty standard smell and color for an IPA. This really isnít too hoppy. The malts are there throughout. A nice bitter graininess, but I have certainly had better IPAs. This one just canít decide if it wants to be a smooth drink again and again IPA or a tough one-at-a-time IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden orange. Clear and crisp looking with a nice white head. Grassy aroma, lightly malty (more of a fresh grain scent), with lightly spicy hops. Flavor and body (medium) are crisp. There is grain and hay and grassy hops. Light spicy hops as well. I canít say Iím a big fan of this, though Iíve tried it many times. Now that Iíve rated it, I will likely not get it again as there are many other IPAís I prefer.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A thin looking golden IPA that provides a wealth of hoppy delicious flavor. A beer that is on the extreme end of the hop scale but drinkable to both a confessed "hop head" and average but ambitious beer drinker. One of the finest IPAís on the market! A hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, delicious experience is in store!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber pour, with an off-white head. Aroma is typical grassy and resin flavor. Flavor is mostly a sweet floral and a hint of diacetyl. Palate is somewhat dissapointing, with a good deal of water. Finish is a little sticky and grassy.

really good IPA. The taste was very fresh, but not overpowering, like with most IPAís a bit of a bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2007 Draught and bottled were both great but always like draught more, great hoppy flavor to it a citrusy grapefruit, grassy and slight pine, with a touch of caramel sweetness to balance it. Golden orange color with thin head, very drinkable.

Overpowering smell of sweet caramel but I like it. Great red hue with big white head. Nice hop flavor.
