UPDATED: JAN 20, 2005 Looks virtually the same as the 90 minute version. Awesome bronze color with a foamy white head. Leaves good lace. The aroma is incredible...piney, citrus fruit (mainly grapefruit), woodsy and sappy. Flavor is piney, a citrusy/ floral concoction. The hoppiness is cut down by the malt. Bitter finish though but not overly so. This is a great session IPA.

I fell in love with this IPA and it loved me back. Everybody makes an IPA. It’s not a stretch to say that IPA is probably the most crowded style of beer in the craft-brewing world. With so much competition it’s hard to distinguish yourself, but Dogfish Head does it again and again with their whole lineup of 60, 90 & 120 minute IPAs. Myself, I prefer the 60 minute version for quaffing purposes because it isn’t as high in alcohol as the other 2. This goes on my top 5 list of all-time favorite IPAs.

yes,yes,yes, we can all write down ’piney’ and ’citrus’ and ’woody grapefruit honey’ and all that, but what really matters is how a beer takes hold of you. this beer changed the way I feel about IPAs. like you like your whole life in a room, a really great room that you find perfect, then you walk through the door and see the rest of the house. This beer does that. My A#1 IPA.

12 oz bottle. 54°. NB Worthy glass. Golden orange color with a small off-white head that subsides quickly, leaving a ring around the glass and some haze and small bubbles. Moderate lacing. Aroma is clover honey, citrus peels, and grapefruit notes. Flavor dives right into hops, with a small malt base. The hops are citrusy and piney and very flavorful. They also are fairly bitter. Finish is dry and bitter with lots of fleeting hops character. The mouthfeel is pretty good for the style. This is an excellent IPA, but I feel that it lacks some of the balance that some of the great ones posess. That being said, I love a hoppy beer and I am enjoying this quite a bit.

Pours clear and golden with a decent white head. Musky and malty aroma with some pine and citrus and a bit of yeast. I get a bit of wood shavings in the smell also, like a pencil being sharpened. Good body and mouthfeel with a pleasant bitter finish. Interesting earthy and malty flavor with some star anise and grapefruit. Somewhat similar to Terminal Gravity IPA. Distinct.

I like this beer ....maybe not as much as the 90 but it’s certainly a bit smoother. Lacks a bit of that pine flavor i really like in the 90. I’m happy with the hop content.

Bottle. Doesn’t it just amaze you how much hops softens the mouthfeel? Me too. Soft, creamy, hoppy mouthfeel. Hops are most def. there, but not overwhelming. Floral and citric notes with a touch of grassiness. Medium bitter on the finish that is perfect. The fine folks at DFH really know how to make an IPA.

Bottle. Hops. Sweet in the olfactory sense area. Looks unfiltered to me. Sharp, bitter in the initial sip. A little warm. Silky velvet on the tongue. This is a fantastic beer. Long, long, long lingering taste.

Foxbush (1258) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2007 This was a 2004 Christmas gift. This IPA was a balanced beer with hops dominating. The color was a rich amber and there was little head formation. This was good IPA that I would order again. This was a treat! I just enjoyed another on tap at galaxy Grill in Richmond. The GM is a real fan of Dogfish and promotes it with three other beers. I will change some of my marks. This was excellent. The beer poured with excessive head. The citrus flavors and balaced bitterness were fun to enjoy. Christmas of 2007 my 4th beer. Another good one.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2005 Bottled 11-22-04. Pours orange body with patchy white head. Tight lacing with cloud-like bubble patterns that remain through the duration. Distinictive aromas of hoppy grapefruit, lots of pine. Pretty dry finish. I’ll definetly be trying the 90 and 120 in near future.
