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.

NDM84 (20) - Street, Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2005
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.

Definitely 90 min’s little brother. The smell and the taste were that of 90 min, but more subdued. Initially quite nutty in the nose and taste, with chocolate showing throw and a healthy dose of hops. Very nice IPA, though a bit overpriced...

ah, my third installment in the minute beers from dogfish head. it is kind of strange that i had the 120 minute first, then about a month later the 90, then several months later the 60. this ipa lived up to expectations for the most part. has that nice cocoa/roasted nut aroma. lovely light brownish amberish color. carmel in the flavor. very smooth. this six pack probably wont last very long. ive had a few better ipa’s than this, but this was still excellent.

Bottled. Orange colour. Aroma is huge and flowery with notes of citrus, grape and mandarin. Flavour brings mostly grapefruit but the mandarin notes are clearly there. This would gain from a little more body maybe, still I love it. Dry of course.

Poured an orange with small white head. Aroma of hops. Very flavorful grapefruit hop taste.

Bottle. I’m still a relative novice when it comes to IPAs, so wanted to try a highly rated one. Not disappointed at spending the bucks. The aroma is solid and super. Hoppy as anything but not at all one dimensional. An unfiltered golden straw color. Passes the "good at any temperature" taste test. Adding this one to my list of personal favorites. BUY AGAIN: Yes, as an occasional treat - but you can buy me one anytime.

I tried this one after I had tried the 120 Minute IPA (which drinks more like a brandy, a delicious beerbrandy). This was hop-hop-hoppy and delicious. Sweet and citrusy, and very easy to quaff. Dogfish are hardcore.

echucker (2) - New York, USA - DEC 20, 2004 does not count
My first IPA. Head came a bit slowly, then lingered. Even copper tone below teh head. Light, airy lacing, which was matched in flavor. Most refreshing, and smooth going down. Dogfish’s own description of cedar is very apt. Matched quite nicely with preztels and BBQ sour cream dip.

Pours a creamy, off-white head. Nice citrus aroma - very sweet smelling. Great drinkability - hints of apricot, pine with fruit rind finish? Nice!
