caesar (5321) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2005
Clear orange golden color, short head. Aroma is very hoppy, typical of an american IPA. Taste is bitter hoppy, bit sweet and dry, spicy, herbal. Full palate, very nice balance.

The boys from Delaware know how to make an IPA. Big flowery hops aroma to get you excited. Nice white head, long lasting. Some malt in the palate with a hops kick and astringent finish. Good stuff.

jerohen (2029) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2005
Once again big thanks to my collegue for bringing the booze. Clear dark golden coloured, thin lacing. Strong hoppy aroma, flowery, with some fruit perhaps. Bitter flavour, full mouthed. Very well balanced. Good beer, i wish we would have more examples of this style around here in the Netherlands.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 Pours a dark golden color, with a large head. Tastes of pine, lemon and strong acidic flavors. Very nice aroma.. and the best balance of malt and hops out of the DFH IPA line. An outstanding IPA.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2005
Transparent yellow-gold in color. Creamy, tall white head with great lacing. Aroma is sweet lemon grass, honeycakes and pine. Hits the palate as smooth and creamy. IBUs seem to be almost an afterthought, as they’re not as powerful as I was expecting. Muted carbonation. Grassy, pine and lemons compose the majority of the flavor. This is one smooth IPA, and a solid rendition of the style.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 29, 2005
Thanks to Axilla for the bottle. Pours a pale golden color. Medium white head with little to no linger. Floral and spicy hop aromatics. Floral nose, malt flavors quickly seep in to combine with a well rounded bitterness. Doesn’t get as syrupy as the 90 minute, which I find preferable. Very spicy hop character is then exuded, which continues through the finish and helps accentuate a lingering bitter mouthcoat. The body is medium light, appropriate for the style. The mouthfeel has enough astringency to prevent any stickiness from being percieved except at temperatures bordering on too high. Excellent session style IPA.

Zeswaft (1397) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2005
Sorry, I"m drinking it out of a bottle but it is still really awesome. Strong fruity bouqet. Hops dominate the palate. Haven’t had a good IPA in a while. Outstanding. Can’t 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.
