UPDATED: JAN 14, 2011 (Bottled on 02/09/2006) A serviceable IPA that at least for my tastes looses merit, because I am not a huge fan of beers fermented with Ringwood yeast. None, the less there is a good balance of malt and hops and the Ringwood seems to have been toned down which bodes well for me.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2016 Very good IPA.This beer is one of the reasons why I love dogfish head, they know how to brew a great IPA. Weel hopped with a balanced bitter bite to it. Very drinkable, almost addicting flavor. Heads and toes over most IPA?s. Cheers! 10 year anniversary re-rate! The 2 big things that changed were the aroma and palate. The aroma was very peppery than the last rate with a soapy scent. Flavor of caramel, spice and pine. Palate is thick and syrupy.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2006
UPDATED: APR 10, 2006 Pretty good IPA. Aroma is all hops. Huge rocky white head. Flavor is right on target for an IPA. Heavy on the hops and a good amount of pale malts holding up the back end. Drys out on the end with some bitterness as expected from an IPA. Has a couple of sharp edges, mostly from the high hop rate, but thatís not a negative, just a facet of the beerís complexity. Its an interesting brew to drink, but not as polished as the 90 Min IIPA. $9.49 for a six pack at Broudyís, Orange Park FL.

This is a great, well balanced IPA. Itís like a toned-down version of the 90 Minute. I love the 90 Minute more and this beer is like itís little brother

One the best IPAís Iíve ever tasted, a very close second to two hearted. Fantastic, very little residual bitterness in the aftertaste. This beer is a constant staple of my fridge.

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - APR 8, 2006
A brilliant golden IPA. Nice hop aroma with mild yeast esters and notes of spice and lemon. Nice soft carbonation with excellent dense foam. I like the hop flavor and thought the caramel malt notes were just subtle enough to add some complexity and give it enough body. A great beer even at four months of age.

a good dry ale but not as hoppy as i would expect an IPA to be. has a dry fizzy start and finishes with little aftertase making it easy to have another one right after. dark brown cola color. fairly straight ale though

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2006
Beer pours a clear, light, bright gold with a small, white, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma is malty with light notes of toasted grain and toasted bread; oppy with moderate notes of resin/pine, grapefruit, lemon zest and a trace of cedar; light miscellaneous note of white pepper, trace note of strawberry, and a little touch of something metallic going on in the wayyyy back. The flavor is lightly-to-moderately sweet, moderately bitter with a long, moderately bitter, lightly astringent finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

ancherrera (162) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2006
Bottle from Total Wine in Ft Myers. Hazy orange in color with a fluffy disipating head. Arome was light but probably because the beer was too cold. Should have warmed it a but. Nice hops with pine and citrus. Light malt but well balanced. Moderate carbonation. Deliscious.

PhysZac (69) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2006
On tap at MacNivenís. Have you heard the saying that less is more? It is proven in this case. Less hops, less malt, less body, less bitterness, less of just about everything than its bigger brother 90 minute. BUT, somehow much more. Aroma is godly. Body is light and very smoothly drinkable. Taste is perfectly balanced. Very very classy brew.
