Pours a nice red-gold, smells strong and great. Not my go-to beer, but I wonít hesitate (even for the 11 dollar price) to buy it if itís available. Tastes really balanced, itís amazing that there are 90 IBUís in this beer, given that it doesnít taste bitter at all, mostly because DFH uses a lot of malt and it creates a pleasant semi-sweet flavor that lingers throughout the entirety of the taste. I think even someone new to craft beer would like this IPA, itís that great.

Lore (1177) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 23, 2014
clear orange to amber colour, moderate sized slightly yellowish off-white head;aroma of pine, tropical fruity notes, biscuit (Scottish shortbread), slight citruses, maybe some minimal earthy yeasty notes, hints of floral notes and hones, as well as some caramel; taste of malty-syrupy sweetness, pine, tropical fruits, and biscuit notes; heavy sweetness and at the same time intensive bitterness - marvellous IIPA!

One of my favorite beers. Great mix of malts and hops to create one of the best IPAs in the world. Great aroma and incredible taste.

Barnoloid (239) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Draft pour at Logan Arcade into snifter. An intense blend of pungent, resiny, oily hops along with an oh-so-sweet malt profile. Big in flavor and big in mouthfeel - there is a stickiness here that clings to your palate.

On draft at dogfish head alehouse in falls church it is a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma is citrus and the taste is strong bitter flavor of citrus that lingers on the palate

Fairly clear orange-amber colour with thin white head. Grapefruit upfront on the nose with perhaps some other fruits such as banana and mango too. Kinda grassy and floral. Taste is great. Strong biscuity backbone which combines well with the oily profile and alcohol warmth. More richly sweet than a regular IPA, but the bitterness and carbonation levels balance this one out nicely.

dnicolaescu (885) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 19, 2014
BOTTLE 355 ML from CH-303, 6 months old. Look: clear copper, off-white creamy head. Aroma: rich dark honey sweetness, the hops are not that intense, but still pleasant: fruity, some resin and fresh hoppy notes. Some alcohol spice. Taste: very sweet, honey, fruity marmalade, the moderate bitterness fails to balance out the sweetness. Zesty notes in the finish.

Among the finest American Imperial IPAs, and, perhaps the best one that is widely available (depending on how one defines that). Maltier and stickier than the usual "west coast style" that dominates this category (e.g., Green Flash, Stone, Russian River). I personally prefer the drier WC style but 90 minute just works, undeniably. Piney hops and caramel sweetness on the nose. Orange amber with a hint of red in appearance. In taste, a first sharp wave of hops, followed by a sweet, sticky, candied apple center, finished with a clean rush of more hops. A delicious treat to be savored at 9% abv. A classic, defining the maltier end of this style.

Bottle from Winooski Beverage Warehouse... Aroma: caramel, pine, grapefruit. App: clear orange with nice frothy head. Taste and palate: full bodied, medium sweetness with dry bitter finish. Carbonation is light. Overall: another great beer from DFH. Iím not a great fan of malty IPAís but this one is really well balanced.

I'm a fan of IPAs and I really sharp, sometimes bitter, high alcohol brews. This selection was very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great aroma. Great flavor and very little after taste. Also a staggering 9.0 ABV packs a mighty wallop.
