EKGoldings (526) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2003
Dark gold, fast disappearing head, slight DMS and hop on the nose. Tangy carbonation goes very well with the tasty malt and hop bitterness. Hop nose not as apparent as I would expect. This IPA has great depth and balance. I think it is the best of the DFH IPA series. A fine beer that is worth seeking out if you like IPAs.

Golden colored with a strong citrus aroma. Nice mix of sweet with a bite. Got to love all those hops

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2003
Deep golden and sparkling; a foamy white head with rings of lace. Piney nose, some grapefruit. Medium bodied - a good amount of sweet sugary malt around the sides of the tongue and even in the finish, but lacks balance overall (that's not necessarily a bad thing!) The hops are thick and full of pine, leaving my tongue feeling rough and abused. Thinner and less intense than the 90 minute - it's nice that this one comes in a 6 pack, I'm going to need it!

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2003
Beer pours (in Chimay glass) an orange-golden, with off-white head. Aroma of hops, straw. Hops is an undesireable characteristic IMO. Hop tasting beer is best described as drinking concentrated, soapy water. Taste it again and think about what you're drinking (hope I don't spoil it for you hop-lovers...). This beer (beer?) is a drainpour. Hops-lovers enjoy. Hop-haters beware. Sampled at 73 degrees Fahrenheit.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JUL 16, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2003 From Trader Joes-P.B. Slightly cloudy golden color, small white head. Aroma kinda grassy. Flavor: Starts lightly sweet then a strange grassy and mildly metallic bitterness. There is a lingering mouth watering aftertaste with a hint of grapefruit in the burp.

WisconsinBeer (705) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2005 Begins on a sweet malt profile. Nice herbal pine hop flavors. The hops play a nice role without overwhelming the beer. Well balanced easy to drink IPA.

BBB63 (6010) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 12, 2003
Slighty hazy golden hue with nice creamy head and good lacing, some floating particles in the beer. Grapefruit and pine aroma with a hint of vanilla. Citrus hop bite on the palate, but not aggressive. Bitter and dry finish, somewhat crisp. Very dry and soft mouthfeel, thin to medium-bodied. A well done American IPA, recommended.

boto (1844) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUL 12, 2003
Bottle: There is a dark, golden color to the beer. Maybe there is a hint of orange to it. It is slightly cloudy. The head is sort of a taupe color, which didn't last long at all. Very potent hop aroma. Somewhat grapefruit-like. Really good hop bite to the taste, but yet they do not overpower you, even with the strength. Has some maltiness in the after-taste. Another great beer from these guys!

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - JUL 12, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2003 Kinda odd looking hazy yellow color, nice aroma, little pit of grapefruit and pine, but not overwhelming. Quite a lot of bitterness from the hops, but still very drinkable for a west coast IPA. Nice beer.
