750ml from Whole Foods in Union Square, NYC. Shared with my girlfriend as I get ready to leave NYC for philly. Pours orange with a 3 finger tan head. Nose is very sweet, with lots of floral citrus. Taste is sweet, hoppy, with floral punch. Pretty interesting overall. Can’t tell if this is as good as fresh 90 minute but its good.

750 ml bottle. Shared with Tim. Pours a cloudy light caramel with a medium off white head. Aroma of the 90 min IPA and light floral hops. Taste has much the same characteristics as the 90 min IPA with a touch of light floral hops.

Bottle via trade. Dark orangish-amber color with very slight haze and a creamy yellowish head. Aroma is sweet malt, spices, and citrusy hops. Flavor is very sweet yet balanced, with caramel malt, earth, resin, spices, citrus and other light fruits, a hint of cheese, and hop bitterness on the finish. Palate very smooth, full, and syrupy. Really good DIPA overall.

dogfish120love (1094) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Pours a dark orange with a thick and frothy head.Smells of orange, coriander, grapefruit, grass, and spices. The aroma is a little sweeter than the run of the mill double ipa. Mildly hoppy and bitter for a DIPA, sweeter than normal. I almost get the flavor of dak fruits.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Pour is a very dark amber, surprisingly clear for an unfiltered beer, with a frothy white head. Aroma has tons of resin, flower, earth, spruce, and some orange rind. Also some biscuity and caramel malt on the nose. Flavor has similar hop character to the 90 minute, with more resin, earth, and flowery notes, but the malt character is not as complex, nor is the depth of the palate. Malt has definite cinnamon and caramel, and a pretty dry and bitter finish. A bit thin and not as comprehensive a DIPA as the 90 minute, but still a damn good beer.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Beautiful reddish brown pour with one finger white head that leaves an elegant lacing. Aroma is very resinous and flowery with some fruitier notes. Yeast character provides a bready/ biscuit note that remains throughout. Flavor is thoroughly bitter with much pungency and caramel. Hop profile is largely floral and citrus with so much resin. Balance is exceptional despite this, giving the brew has enough sugars to combat the hop wallop. Palate is pretty full for the style, with a warming alcohol note and dry alpha acid riddled finish. Excellent balance and great flavors round out this brew. A yum-fest for sure.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 4, 2009
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber with a medium creamy off white head with tons of floaties. Aroma of that earthy dfh English yeast strain, cat piss, floral and citrusy. Pretty much a yeasty 90 minutes. Flavor of the same earthy yeast, mixed citrus, pine, flowers, toffee, nuts, smooth on the palate.

halfonit (1303) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Good stuff. Pours a medium brown/golden color. At first scent I can smell some floral hops. It has some fruity and pine undertones. Taste is full of hops. This is exactly what I was looking for tonight.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - AUG 2, 2009
pours a slightly cloudy copper with thick frothy eggshell head. great lacing very bright fresh-hop aroma of pine, citrus, and apples -- pineapples perhaps. under that is some sweet caramel malt, and a sweet alcohol bite as it warms. also some sake/rice. very smooth flavor, almost no hop bitterness, but still has the bright freshness, somewhat balanced with a creamy caramel. surprisingly mild for DFH, but not bad, and as it warms there are more spicy notes, with cinnamon and vanilla. finish is slightly bitter but a bit watery. body is also somewhat thin and maybe undercarbonated, but has a creamy, slightly soapy mouthfeel. soap, unfortunately, is not a bad description.
