Consumed on 04/03/08.
Slightly hazy butterscotch-hued fluid. Plenty of carbonation of the sparkling wine variety. Nice white head.
Aroma is clean and hoppy (herbs, citrus) with a touch of sweet malt.
The first sip is all oxidization which oddly disappears after that first taste. Huh. Anyway, sweet malt (caramel?) with some bitter hoppiness at the end. Something Belgiany in there as well, sort of phenolic: a yeast artifact? Has subtle touch of the the typical DFH "house" flavor - slightly medicinal maple syrup klinda thing that I actually quite like. Bitterness does not linger long on the finish.
Dry, slightly parching on the tongue.
Well balanced, overall, but the 90 Minute IPA has a surprisingly surperior drinkability over this one.

Poured from a bottle with a bottled on date of 6/24/14; into a pub glass.
Appearance - a brilliant gold, swirling carbonation bubbles that form a fluffy, white head. Lacing, surprisingly, is weak.
Smell - more earthy hops, pine, herbal; some candy malt notes. The herbal/grass nose after the bottle is finished is always a bonus for me!
Taste - earthy hop flavor with subtle malt backing. Not bursting with flavor, but this grows on you quickly and it's hard to stop sipping!
Feel - very well balanced, though the finish is hop bitterness; incredibly easy to drink!
Overall - somehow one of the most iconic IPAs has eluded me for this long; well worth the wait! Such a well crafted IPA; I get the feeling my review will change (for the better) as I have another bottle!
