I love the 60 min and I am hit and miss on the 90 min. Sometimes the 90 min just strikes me as overly sweet, and I DO NOT like really sweet beers. The 120 min was just plain gross IMO.

120 should be cellared for at least a year before enjoying it.

IMO, for this reason they shouldn't call it an IPA. If it is so complex that it needs to be cellared, it doesn't fit the IPA Style. Same goes for the 90 minute.

90 is an imperial, 60 is a regular IPA. You can't compare them as the same style.

The 90 doesn't fit any IPA style, It drinks like a Barleywine.

They had to dump their last batch of 120 for quality reasons so there hasn't been a batch in a while.

60 - to me is a great session beer. I keep a bunch on hand when I am not sure what to drink

90 - Is great beer much bigger and hoppier then 60 and I usually will finish my night with this type of beer.

120 - Is a sipper

I love DFH brews I think Sam is does a great job.
