3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a touch of orangey yellow with a medium size, lasting head. Aroma is mostly grassy and herbal. Taste is full of herbal, american hops, but is gentle and dry, with a bit of creaminess at the end. Its a weaker version of 90 minute which should be good because 90 minute is pretty killer, but its a little too weakened down.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Map Room (Chicago). This golden-colored ale poured with a miniscule white head, elicitng a very hoppy aroma. The flavor is classic IPA - a smooth combination of malt and hops with a bite at the finish. Another great Dogfish brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured with a golden color and a small white head. Hoppy aroma of citrus and light pine with caramel mixed in. Flavor matched the aroma. Nice but I like the 90 minute better. My most recent tasting of this was an ’03 bottle. Hops were still there but malt stood out much more. Lighter carbonation as well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a nice golden color with a two finger head that didn’t really last.
Had a good citrusy hop smell, with a little bit of pine to it.
Flavor was citrus, slightly grassy, and sweet. Had some good hoppiness to it without being overwhelming, and some malt in there.
This is a beer that I would have no problem drinking several of at a time.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance - golden colored with small, persistant head. thin lace all the way down the glass after drinking.
Aroma - Very citrusy, a little grassy and a little pine
Taste - Tastes like it smells with grapefruit, pine and a slight sweetness just before the warming feel at the end. Citrusy taste coats the mouth and lingers long after swallowed
Palate - Dry and hoppy. Leaves the mouth dry and tingling for the next drink.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy dark golden color with huge off white head, that lasts the whole beer. Or I drink to fast. Nice citrus and floral hop aroma with some malt backbone. Flavor much the same, except a big pronounced malt kick.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle-Hazy orange color with a small head. It was hoppy, both in aroma and smell with a solid bitter and oil finish. I have to admit the first bottle didn’t wow me, but I really enjoyed the second and I look forward to rest of the 6 pack. 9.49pettys

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Poured with a thin head on a copperish body. Aroma is hoppy. Flavor is as well, malt not as big a presence here as it is in the 90. Very smooth in the mouth and a pleasure to drink. Not bad.
