Yep, it's still there. The DFH 90 Minute IPA tastes like pure alcohol, and really put me off. Still, I sprang for the oak-aged version because most of the oak-aged beers I've had have been remarkably smooth. Well, it smoothed some of the rough edges of this beer, but the pure alcohol bite is still there. My tongue was a little numb for an hour after drinking this beer, and I honestly poured out the last swallow. It got to tasting better somewhere in the middle of the pint as it warmed, but once it was TOO warm, it was just atrocious. I was more or less ruined for the rest of the night. In the immortal words of Corporal Radar O'Reilly, "I think I've been slaked." So now I'm stuck with three fourths of a 15-dollar four-pack. Anyone interested?
