Just when I was about to dismiss Dogfish Head as The Most Overrated Brewer In The Free World, this lil’ jewel comes along. This stuff is good, people, and I’m not just blowin’ smoke out of my tookis. A nice and mild IPA with just a tinge of bite makes this one VERY drinkable and EVEN MORE enjoyable. (It’s even worth the $9 you plunk down for a sixer.)

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Nice copper/bronze color with an off white head (forgot to note the lacing). Aroma was a bit too hoppy for me which is odd because I enjoy intensly hoppy beers - might have been the glass or temperature. In any event, the flavor was very very good. Hearty bitterness and a consistent finish and aftertaste. Even for such a robust IPA, it is very drinkable, satisfying and will always be welcome in my fridge!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2004 Light copper body with mild carbonation and a fluffy white head. Aroma is floral plus light pine, nectarine and other stone fruits, and the signature DFH brown sugar malt quality. This is a major hop fix. Hop flavor is spicy, cheesy and somewhat catty. A juicy citrus quality develops with time. Despite the comparably low IBU’s advertised, this beer leaves me with the strongest hop impression of the three DFH "Minute" beers. Resinous flavor and feel. Has some noticeable residual sweetness but lacks the nice malty balance of big brother 90 Minute.

Maddog (390) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2009 Had this many times in bottle form, but at the brewery in Delaware, I was completely blown away by the intensity of the hop presence. What an incredible IPA! Amarillo are by far, my favorite flavor hops in the world. The hop aroma, flavor and bitterness create a senstional brew.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - DEC 7, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2004 Very good beer. Nice citrus flavor. Apricot and Graitfruit at the same time. I’m glad I gave this a shot. The pour was nice and red. Great IPA, but there is better out there.

qdog (201) - Cleveland, Mississippi, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Bottle, nice golden color with medium white head, nice aroma of hops, citrus, and pine, medium lacing, great hoppy taste that also brings out citrus flavor right before the bitter end. a very refreshing smooth IPA

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Nice deep amber/bronze color with a pretty thick and creamy head of eggshell white. Some lacing. Aroma of fruity citrus hops. Oranges and other sweet citrus. A touch of apricot as well. The malts are nice in the background. Bitter hops are light up front and fade quickly into a maltiness of caramel. Kind of a muskiness about. A touch tangy on the palate from the bittering hops, but a bit creamy as well. Tapers off into a nice mellow, malty and bitter finish with some citrusy fruits.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Wonderful example of the style. Pours a nice burnt orange producing a small head. Spicy and hoppy, just the way I like it.

Thus is a great beer. Every bit as good as its big brothers, the 90 and 120, but not as tough a configuration to perfect. That’s the only reason I wouldn’t give it a perfect score....

Picked up a six-pack for Thanksgiving at Whole Foods Market. Looked golden in my glass. Great tasting too. Enjoyed it outside with some Greek olives. Going to try the 90 and 120 IPAs next!
