Cloudy burnt orange color with fine brilliant white head and fine bubbles. Piney nose with grapefruit, and some light roasted malt notes. Medium mouthfeel, mostly dry with lingering pine hop finish. Some flesh fruit, and some apricot qualities. Very nice session..

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUL 18, 2004
Draft at VT Brewers Fest - Pours a golden amber with a decent whitish head. Aroma is a floral/citrus with Flavor is a very excellent citrus/piney/hoppy mixture that I really like. Finish is bitter and hoppy. Excellent! Too bad they did not serve the 120! This was really good!

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2005 Solid. Tight, bitter, carbonated nose dissipates slowly, with floral and woody notes appearing along the way. Nice, understated bottle, too.

Simply a darn fine IPA. I like Alesmith’s IPA more, but that shouldn’t imply the Dogfish version is bad. I like the 90 and 120 versions so much that I feel the 60 minute style isn’t "enough" for my tastes. If I remove the bias I can say(without hesitation) that this one is a keeper. Flowery, hoppy nose is very typical...very expected. The flavor is piney, citrusy, and definitely hoppy....just not super intensely so. I like it and could drink it over long sessions easily. The folks at Dogfish really know their beers.

P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 12, 2004
simple light bronze color, small creamy head. light flowery, lightly herbal nose, a bit underwhelming. Flavor is very much alive. light moderately sweet malt, a bit of a dry straw german touch to the malts as weel. hops are piney and spicey, everpresent throughout. excellent, soft fluffy body

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2004
this is a pretty good ipa. I think it’s more propriate the amount of alcohol in this beer compared to the 90 min. ipa. This is a typical, pretty bitter ipa. Love them.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2008 another good ipa from dogfish. i liked this one a bit less than the 90, it seemed a bit less flowery, and obviously a lot less flowery then the 120. it was a refreshing beer nice for a hot summer day. a perfect amount of hops added to this unique brew, which poured out a beautiful gold, and smelled as well as any pale ale should. Must get fresh or it sucks, as it doesnt make for a good malt-bomb by any means.

Wonderful aroma that is matched by a intensly hoppy character!! An excellent example of an AMerican IPA...
