DFH Squall IPA
« on: June 17, 2010, 08:29:12 AM »
Bottle conditioned 90 minute IPA dry hopped with 6 different hops.

This had a nice hop flavor for such a big beer (9% abv). It was bitter without being harsh but overall it was a little too sweet for me so I probably won't buy again. The 60 minute is enough for me but extreme hops heads will probably love this.

I had this beer earlier this year and thought it had a nice hop aroma with some malt aroma. The hops mingled nicely in the flavor with a very slight and supporting maltiness. A medium to full mouthfeel as I would expect from DIPA. Overall I really enjoyed this beer and would buy it again. Kudos to DFH.

Didn't really dig it... The "unfiltered" effect would probably be better appreciated fresh at the brew-pub... I think by the time it got to IN it lost a lot of freshness.

Never tried the Squall but I'm right there with you on the 60 vs 90 thing.  Their 60 is my favorite while the 90 (and more) seems just a little too syrupy sweet for me.
