Sorry, I"m drinking it out of a bottle but it is still really awesome. Strong fruity bouqet. Hops dominate the palate. Havenít had a good IPA in a while. Outstanding. Canít wait to try the 90 minute

The 90 Minute IPA is much better, but this is a very tasty and easy to drink IPA.

The 90 minute is better, but this a good quality beer. Nice hop flavor, balances the malt nicely.

As always, Dogfish Head brewery delivers the goods. The first thing you notice is the delicious extra hoppy floral aroma as it wafts from the glass to your nose. Ahhh, like heaven. The taste is exceptionally smooth the extra hoppy goodness excites the taste buds. Excellent! Try it, if you like this one, go for the 90 minute IPA.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2005 I donít really know what all the hype is over this stuff. The finish is nothing I care for at all. It had a nice pour and was pleasant in the glass, but thatís as close as I care to be to it again. Iíd like to try the 90 minute just to see if thereís more substance to it, other than just bite.

Foam, foam, foam everywhere. The head was just insane. I poured half the bottle and the head in the glass was crazy. I swirled the bottle and foam actually overflowed the lip. I am frankly disappointed with this beer. The aftertaste was almost medicine like. The murkiness in the glass was nice looking, but the head was a bit putting off.

Lots of hops right from the first whiff... I donít get much more than that, though... I feel like itís a one-dimensional hop-extravaganza. I prefer the 90 simply because thereís more to the beer.

More rapid than eagles their coursers they came or hark the herald angels sing. Darn, but this is good stuff. BIg time hops, goodly malt. Nice and smooth. Like it better than the 90 or 120. This is like just right.

JDUB (178) - Venice Beach, California, USA - APR 10, 2005
Nice hoppy aroma. Pungent, and good. Hops not as abundant as 90 minute imperial. (obviously). Very nice smoky malt sweet flavor with lots of hops. Very good beer, smooth enough to drink lots.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 10, 2005
In the bottle at the Brickskeller. Really huge cascade hop aroma. The aroma is the best part of this beer. Gold in color with a strong white head of large bubbles. Outstanding balance of hop bitterness and malty sweetness. Mid-finish toasty flavor.
