Esquire Magazine calls our 90 Minute I.I.PA., "perhaps the best I.P.A. in America." An Imperial I.P.A. brewed to be savored from a snifter. A big beer with a great malt backbone that stands up to the extreme hopping rate. This beer is an excellent candidate for use with Randall The Enamel Animal! 90 ibu

pours orange with a white head and nice lacing. aroma is not very strong; some sprucy hops. flavour is dominated by malts; caramel, raisins, oranges. balanced bitter finish. interesting, but a bit too sweet for my taste.

On tap at Cobb’s Landing. Appearance is dark straw with white head with good retention. Nose is surprisingly bland, but what this beer lacks in aroma is made up in taste. This continues to be one of my favorite imperial IPA’s.

Pours a cloudy orange amber hue with a medium frothy head and medium carbonation. Has floral/spruce hop aroma. Taste is bitter and fruity and leaves the tongue dry afterwards. Overall, the beer isn’t that bad but don’t recommend it to newbies.

Bottle - pours Amber with white head. Was expecting a big hop aroma, quite surprised by Hom much the malt dominates. Taste is quite sweet and fruity with a decent amount of the hop coming through. Mouthfeel is creamy light carbonation.

Very effervescent and well balanced. Sweeter and not as hoppy as expected, which was too bad. It was a gift and I was happy to be able to try it, as I have heard lots of good things about it.

A very well balanced IPA. Slightly sweet malty flavor mixes with a nice light hoppy citrus flavor. Another wonderful brew by the DFH guys!

Zacht van smaak, lichte tinteling en bitter. Merk niet dat het een biertje van 9% is..

Just had the Swedish fish infusion version. Really smooths out the hops. Adds a sweet flavor and that touch of strawberry licorice. Tap

bunget (679) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
Sampler at Mondial de la Biere in Montreal. Hazy golden body, medium white head. Faint aroma of peaches, oranges and caramel. Taste of grapefruit zest, orange candies, peach. Too sweet for my taste.

i love the balance of this beer. The flavor is strong and the finish is smooth. All hop-heads need not apply as this is a great balanced beer with no hint of the 9% alcohol it delivers. Reminds me of Nugget Nector and a tiny bit of Hopslam.
