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.

12 oz. pours a clear orange/dark golden with a minimal head (possibly glassware) and medium carbonation. Aroma is of of orange/almost tangerine, citrus, some pine. Taste is bitter up front followed by some sweet malt, citrus/orange, with a very smooth, bitter finish.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2006
Bottle at Issac Newtonís. Pours amber with small compact off-white head. Aroma of pine hops, citrus, sweet malts. Flavor is exceptionally smooth, citrus, sweet up-front, carbonation with a mildly bitter finish, with an after taste of slight orange. Good healthy body, Great brew.

chicagobears (449) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2006
UPDATED: APR 2, 2006 Golden ale, solid sticky lace. Bottle conditioned...nice. Whew, what an aroma. Floral and citrusy. I could tell right off the bat that this a quality IPA. My first from this brewery and theyíve made me a believer. Sticky flavor of grapefruit and pine. Not the best Iíve had but very very good.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2006
From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with an unnotched packaged date on the front label. Made a good appearance, poured a hazy peach hued copper with a foamy, sticky white head that settled into a thin bubbly lacing, decent carbonation. Had a floral and citric hop nose with a buttery, malty background. Crisp, buttery medium bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. A crisp floral, mildly herbal and citric hop bitterness upfront, balanced by a buttery, nutty yeastiness and a grainy maltiness and a dry, toasted grainy finish with a gentle hop bitterness lingering in the palate, very tasty. A good everyday IPA from Dogfish Head, balanced tasting and quaffable.

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2006
A nice change of pace from the excellent 90 minute IPA, this ale offers much of the same at a lower price point. I have purchased many a 6 pack and would almost call this my "go to" beer, if I were to have to name only one. Flavors of grapefruit, apricot, and piney hops permeate a strong presentation to the pallate. Mouthfeel is light, yet noticeable. Finish is long and rich, with a lip smacking crispiness and hoppish bitter taste on the toungue. Love this stuff, wish it came out of my faucet.

rmalloy (199) - los angeles, California, USA - MAR 26, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2007 A good IPA available on tap in many places. Itís a bit too sweet and could use some more hops. Complexity is not one of this beerís strong suits. Nevertheless, this is an enjoyable easy to drink beer.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAR 26, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very slightly hazy golden amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted through most of the glass. Very nice floral aroma. Flavor is decidedly hoppy, but without being overly bitter. Very good and represents the style very well.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAR 25, 2006
Had a few bottles of this last night. Nose of pine, spruce & resin; grass, flowers, & perfume. Pours a clear orange amber. The tall, frothy off white head is mostly diminishing with fair lace. The brew is well balanced, the finish is sweet then lingering with a pleasant bitterness. The full body is soft & dry. Not nearly as big as I would have anticipated.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Poured brilliantly clear light amber with a sticky dirty white head. My nose was blasted with outrageous grapefruit, pine, and resin. Lots of sugary honey-ish malt aroma also. The hop flavor comes off very grassy which I donít find pleasing at all. Light touch of honey and maple malt flavor. Full sticky body is nice. The grassy harsh flavor is what kills this beer for me.
