Looks like a normal IPA, smells like a normal IPA, however the taste has a nice balance. There is a nice malt behind the hops, which makes it a refreshing drink. Good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

caramel, malty, resin, plenty of body, hints of prunes or figs. overall an excellent imperial ipa, but you dont need me to tell you that. We’ve all had it a million times and its just a damn fine ipa with a lack of booziness you can get with high gravity ales.

Pours a hazy amber with a 2 finger head that quickly disapates. Nose is bready and a little funky. Taste isn’t that hoppy for a DIPA and has a huge malt backbone.

Little to no aroma inherent after pour into glass, darker amber color, slightly boozy but that is to be expected given 9% ABV, wasn’t as crisp as I’d like in an IPA, potentially due to bottle

I liked this beer, but I didn’t find it AS exceptional as others have. Good IPA, but i wouldn’t drive 50 miles just to find some. Hopslam > DFH 90min.

90 is clear and amber-orange. It has a great, strong aroma...flowery, hoppy, citrusy. A very hoppy flavor, with a creamy, full-bodied palate. A great example of a DIPA.

stevec (21) - Galena, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2007
Bottle in Chicago, citrus aromas and pours a nice golden amber. Sweet at first sip, then follows through with the citrus from the aroma. Refreshing and complex, a rare find. Almost unrecognizeable next to the 120 minute IPA, but equally as interesting and much more "drinkable".

smetrick (21) - Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2008
12 oz bottle poured into tumbler. Tawny color, translucent. minimal, quickly dissapating white head. Low carbonation. Very little on the nose (probably because of my glass). Tastes of brown sugar, toast, spice, and pepper. Very long finish lingers on the palate with juniper flavors. Great flavor. Proof that a great IPA doesn’t have to be a puckered up hop bomb. Watch out! This drinks easy at 9.1%! It’s a creeper. ps- better than Hopslam

Picked this up at Wine and Wares in Jacksonville NC. Poured an orange/amber color with a 1 finger head. Floral scents in the nose. Medium body. Zesty carbonation. Taste is some up front bitterness from the hops, citrus notes, a touch piney, with a bready/cake-like sweet malt to smooth things out. Hops stay prominent, with a bitter/sweet finish that leans slightly more to the bitter, but remains pleasant. Also a bit of warming in the finish, which is the only time I noticed the 9% ABV.

I do not think I am ready for the world of hoppy beers. This reminded me of chewing on a pine tree. Too bitter. I ike the rich thick dark beers please!
