When fresh, it's one of my all time favorite commercial beers. Enough malt presence to compliment the a$$ton of hops. I like 'em bitter and hoppy. Gonna give a clone recipe a run very soon. If and when I get it down, it will go into regular rotation.

Two weeks fermentation as it will allow the yeast to have a better chance of cleaning up the beer prior to racking. I'm more concerned with the flavor as opposed to the appearance.
Probably my favorite DFH beer.
