UPDATED: JAN 2, 2011 Not nearly as good as the 90 minute, but a great tasting IPA nonetheless. A premium session beer.

Not as intense as its big 90 minute brother but really delicious. Sweet fruits like peach and apricot with a fine dry bitterness. Canít believe I hadnít had it until now. One of the best Iíve had from DFH.

Cool_Bond (1803) - Kung av ÷l @ Facebook, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2015
Go fruity and floral flavor and aroma. Maybe a little too sweet, too. Good bitterness that fills the mouth for a long while. Good beer but not special. Follow me @ Kung av Ųl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

backdaft (254) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours a golden amber color with an off white head. Aroma is pine and grapefruit. Taste is nicely balanced with the malt profile. Medium body and carbonation. Moderately bitter finish. Pretty solid IPA.

bartzluke (41) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 19, 2015
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into Spiegelau IPA glass. Giant fluffy pillowy head, great carbonation, nice golden color. Similar to apple juice in color. Fairly cloudy. Nose is pine and citrus. Mouthfeel is full, though I wouldn?t quite say creamy. Taste is delicious. Nicely hoppy, but not too strong. Citrus fruit and pine again. Maybe candied fruit? A great beer that I could drink quite a few of.

willisread (407) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 18, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from old town. Pours a hazy gold color with a big off-white head. Huge citrus, grapefruit and pine notes on the nose. Perfectly banged hops and malts leave this sweet, bitter and fruity on the palate. Just a perfect IPA a. Great clean crisp finish with some sweetnes.

One of the best noses on an IPA.. me thinks thatís Apricot? DEE-licously fragrant. Pours clear golden with a nice 2 finger head. Fluffy lacing on the glass is a plus. Flavor is smooth, hoppy, and sweet with a hint of pine. Mouthful is ridiculously chewy for an IPA. Overall a great IPA, that Iím glad gave a 2nd chance to! Keep drinking, friends!

EyeAmBaldman (357) - Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Pours a hazy straw color with a thick white head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Taste is a mild bitter on the front end with a nice clean finish. Taste is pine and citrus with a bit of malt on the tongue. Pretty good IPA.

fakebeersnob (206) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Overall great IPA. I do prefer the 90 minute, but this is still a top IPA. Not as much of a hop bomb. Crisp, with the pine and citrus mix pretty balanced. Slight floral to it, Light copper color with a decently lasting head/lacing. A bit of a citrus and pine smell - just like the taste. Stellar IPA, and lighter drinking than a lot.
