COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally developed for British sailors stationed in India, IPAs were aggressively hopped to help prevent spoilage on long ocean voyages. Now that spoilage isnít as big a problem, weíve eased up on the hoppiness just a hair to let the caramel malts shine through. Itís a big beer with big flavor that really lets you appreciate hops in all their glory.

NikkTwist (1519) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Draft at Fado. Top of a keg. Poured a mostly clear medium orange amber. Large off-white head quickly reduced to a foam ring. Looks ok but tastes dreadful. Earthy woody mix of hops that does not work for me. An ascetic wheat aroma. More flavor than most commercial IPAs but no complexity.

MarkBarnes (375) - Waterville, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2013
May 21, 2013; 12 oz. btl.; tumbler. Clear amber/yellow pour. Head disappeared quickly. No lacing. Faint grassy aroma. Unpleasant metallic taste/palate. Struggled through this one, which is very rare. Avoid.

jbruner (2138) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with thin pay ring that sticks nicely. Aroma of pale malt and slight piney hop. Taste is more modality than hoppy, but not horrible. Decent when it warms so good fit drinking by a pool in the summer and itís readily available.

cfrancis (2250) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2013
Pours amber orange with a small white disappearing top. Aroma is earthy hop with biscuity malts. Taste is biscuit malts, some small earthy hop bitterness with a small caramel finish.

trapped (715) - New York City, TURKEY - MAY 11, 2013
Drought. Light amber color with small foamy whitish head, light hops aroma, sweet hoppy taste, mellow finish. Very smooth but a bit weak.

beaz1591 (237) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 6, 2013
IPA glass. Odors of wet hay but sadly almost no hops are detected. A decent looking beer, brownish gold color, thick white head and plenty of lacing. Probably the worst tasting IPA Iíve ever had. A very poorly done IPA

ShawnMalloy (130) - Auburn, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 4, 2013
This is the worst IPA Iíve ever bought. Iím glad I got DFH 60 Minute as a chaser. I have 5 more bottles of this. Wish me luck.

Part of a random night out on the town. Pretty bad for an IPA - I donít think itís worthy of the name

paulvanpelt (320) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2013
Gedronken uit fles, dus geen goede rating voor uiterlijk. Aroma is bloemig, brood, licht metalig. Smaak vooral bitter. Beetje waterig, weinig body.

jake65 (2588) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle: Translucent copper pour with a finger of creamy beige head. Aroma is oddly like rye bread, dandelions, malts, and lightly metallic. The flavor is borderline bad to offensive. Metallic, dirty florals and herbs, and a sour maltiness. Really dry and lingering finish. Maybe I got a bad bottle, maybe not. Either way this was bad.
