On tap, foamy dissipating head. Smells a bit smokey. Not as hoppy as I thought. Taste is kinda smokey earth not too citrusy. Feel is pleasant. Overall a good choice.

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Beer is amber with bubbles streaming towards the surface, forming a tall white head that slowly subsides and leaves behind solid lacing.

Smell is straight-up hops, very citrusy. Taste follows nose. There is a lingering citrusy bitterness,like how an orange rind tastes. Carbonation is fairly average.

I'm not an IPA fan, but this is remarkably drinkable - though it yearns to be paired with powerful savoury or spicy foods.

Pours a very light amber with a one finger soapy white head. Aroma is pine and resin with some citrus showing through. Taste is pine and resin upfront with hints of citrus and baked bread from the malt, with the lightest sweetness at the end. Mouthfeel is smooth and quite carbonated, with a drying quality from the hop bitterness. Overall, a very good lower abv ipa that pairs well with a cheeseburger.

Amber gold color with a finger of sudsy white head. Smells and tastes of mild pine hops and great caramel malts with a slightly toasted character and modest hop bitterness. Medium bodied with a slight prickliness to the mouthfeel. Refreshing and enjoyable.

Bottle dated 2/23/2016. DFH Tulip (the first DFH beer I have actually had in this!)

Appearance: pours a slightly hazy gold, with one finger bright white head and initially very active carbonation that fades to a few large slow bubbles. Not much in the way of retention, just a few bubbles at the edge and a thin skim across the top. Moderate lacing.

Smell: hoppy and sweet. Mostly a sweet mandarin orange, with a little pineapple. Pretty traditional and very inviting.

Taste: dry and piney arrival. Broadens to show off a little citrus and resin before turning to a light, bone dry soda cracker, with a moderate bitterness that lingers, but only mildly. Very cleansing.

Mouthfeel: on the lighter side of midweight. Well carbonated, but not excessive. Clean and crisp as can be.

Overall: this is a very refreshing, balanced but extremely dry, crisp, and piney IPA. I could see myself really jonesing for this on occasion, but it's not one I would make a regular. Very much in the vein of Finestkind and Stone IPA. A good "food IPA" perhaps.

Behold, long rumored, but often unverifiable, the rumored, 'normal' beer from DFH! Hardly any gimmickry. Looks a mild amber colored pale with 1/2" white head. Aroma was super mild hop grapefruit kick downs.

Taste was a mildly toasted pale with some toffee aspect to the malt impingement. Still has some sweetness that is above average for style. Bitter notes get in there from the '60 minute' hop boil, these are mostly bittering hops. Its a decent beer, pretty average for style, nothing "outstanding" about it. Really does seem quaint and balanced these days.

Not as overwhelming hoppy as the name led me to believe. Still a very hoppy American IPA. Light in color with a white head. As you would expect, both the nose and the taste are dominated by the beautiful flower scent of the hops in the style of the best west coast IPAs. Too strong for me to drink all night, but also less hoppy than many American IPAs, I will definitely have another when I get a chance.

L: Golden yellow color, with a small white head and little lacing.

T: Lots of floral hops balanced out by sweet toasted malt.

T: Lots of floral hops, some spicy malts, a nice medium bitterness balanced out by sweet toasted malts. Very drinkable.

L: Light body, with creamy carbonation, very easy drinking.

O: A very nice easy drinking IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Overall: A drinkable / lighter IPA from DFH. Doesn't really fill the senses like
it's big brother DFA 90 minute: (Almost a DFH 90 minute "lite" if
that makes sense.) This was an older bottle, that was arguably beyond its
best by date + storage conditions may have been somewhat suspect. May revisit
this beer / review with another bottle at some point in the future.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Pours a golden copper color.

Overall: The aroma has a great floral hop goodness. This beer was incredibly hoppy yet it isn’t overpowering. You get a hop bite with noticeable bitterness, but in the best possible way. It is incredibly balanced and there is definite malty backbone that is very pleasant. The drinkablity is great and it is incredibly smooth. Perfect IPA!

Smell: citrus, caramel, pineapple, bitter piney hops. Taste: bready malt, dank citrus, med carbonation. Finish: grapefruit, herbal notes, dry, resin bitterness.
slightly metallic & dank notes suggest this may not be very fresh (bottled 01/19/16 could be 11/19/15)

Very good, very hoppy IPA. Definitely one of the better IPA's that I've had. Goes down smooth but a little rugged at the same time. Would love to get my hands on the other Dogfish IPA's out there.

This beer... It's a pale medium gold color. It is crisp. There are no overwhelming flavors, but the best I can describe it is it's like a crisp lager with a delicious hoppy taste and some earthy flavors as might be found in an English ale. It's very well balanced. While there are no overly fruity or piney flavors that jump out at you, the balanced, hoppy, crisp flavor and feel of this beer make for a strangely delightful taste. Very drinkable and delicious.

L: Dark copper colored ale. Very clear, leaves little head.
S: Tons of toasty malts, with a touch of cereal and granola. Floral hop notes
T: Very smooth. Once again, tons of malt, very toasty, like toasted bread. Hops here are present and provide floral aspects to the flavor but virtually no bitterness.
F: Very light, incredibly balanced. Carbonation is medium, makes the beer very effervescent. So drinkable.
O: This would make for an awesome session IPA. Very enjoyable drink.

Pours a nice golden yellow with medium to small sized head. The aroma is a sharp, fresh smell almost resembling freshly cut grass. The immediate hit on the first taste is a fresh tasting citrus with nice hop balance. The finish is very smooth and flavorful with a nicely balanced lighter carbonation; easily the best part about this beer.

Not as clear as some of the better West Coast IPAs out there, but still a gorgeous beer. Pale honey in color with a surprising amount of carbonation. Pleasant floral, grassy hop nose. Lots of lip smacking hops character in the flavor, with a sturdy malt backbone. Semi-dry (such a cop out descriptor) with a surprisingly clean finish

Bottle from Delabierman. Classic IPA, favoring the floral hops, over the bitter. Slick and smooth, nice malty flavor, gentle dry bitterness at the finish. Overall quality product.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter and it was bottled about 3 months ago. Color is deep orange gold with 2 finger white head. Nice retention with webbed lacing on my glass. The aroma is quite floral and citrusy with hints of light caramel malts in the background. Flavor follows the nose well with a mighty hop bite that is leveled from the sweeter malts. Perfect carbonation with a sticky medium fell and dry finish. Overall a true classic IPA that uses the massive hops well.

On the more orange side of gold with a white head that left ribbons of lacing. Smells malty sweet with a candied pineapple scent hiding in there. There is a nice sweetness in taste and a little citrus and pine. Nice balance and a clean finish. This is a fine and tasty IPA.

After having the 4-month-old bottle of the 90 Minute by the same brewery, this same 4-month-old bottle has held out much better. Aroma standing surprisingly well. Lacks a little on the flavor for my preference but is still clean and very very drinkable.

It is nicely carbonated leaving a good head after the pour. The flavor is spot on, a balanced IPA with nothing weird going on. This brew is definitely worth having over and over again.

This is a very tasty brew and is a great year-round IPA that I can drink anytime and anywhere. It is extremely well balanced. A lot of initial citrus and hoppy notes hit the palate, and then transitions very nicely to a very unique herbal and grassy finish. The bitter notes are extremely smooth and balanced, and they hit the perfect mark to have this brew sitting at 60 IBU's. Two thumbs up for this classic IPA that every hop head should get their hands on.

On tap, pours a clear gold with a decent white rocky head. Primary smell and taste are on the pine/grapefruit side. Not super malty, but enough to balance. Not overly bitter, but has some bite. A decent if unremarkable IPA. Not in the same league as DFH 90.

Cloudy orangey color with a small white head.

Aroma: apricots/papaya/mango, citrusy hops.

Flavor: not really bitter up front at all, not much bitter aftertaste either. Fruity, slight citrus, delicious!
