Bright, light auburn under a white sheet that forms nice lacing. Strong, but gentle American hops that are more citrus than pine, yet somehow a caramel maltiness breaks through the hops perfume. As in the nose, hops dominate the flavour of this beer, beginning with a salty/grassy feel/taste which evolves into a nice hops flavour thatís actually a bit weaker than expected, with all of the aroma. A little bit of caramel malt in the flavour as well, followed by medium bitterness. Medium body, a bit salty and sort of mouth puckering from all the hops.

flocco (20) - Hillsborough, New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2005
Very, very good, the 90 minute IPA is much better to me....but this is about as good as any and not as expensive as the 90 minute. Overall, a great value.

Best IPA for the buck. Yes, I too prefer the 90 minute. But at nine bucks a four-pack on my wallet, I like the 60 minute a whole lot more. But then again, Iíve never spent more than $30 for a bottle of wine and I think itís a chic and savvy exhibition to be seen with a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon at a hoity toity art show.

Nice amber color with a big white head on it. Starts off smooth, and has a nice strong hoppy after-taste. Definitely one of the best IPAís iíve found out there

Tejas (920) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2005 I think Iím spoiled by the 90 but this one is still nice. Would purchase regularily for an everyday IPA and leave the 90 for special occassions.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2005
This is a very well balance hoppy IPA which has a smooth finish. After having this in a sampler pack, I went out for a case of this. It has a bit of a rusty taste in regards to its bitterness but that is what I expect in an IPA. I only wish the 90 minute and 120 minute IPAs from Dogfish sold for the same price this one does!

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Dark amber, unfiltered with a pretty flat head and some sediment. Pronounced hoppiness in the nose, in fact the hops saturates this beer - theyíre simply all over and returns in the palate. One of the most hardcore IPAís Iíve had.

bmanLS (134) - Gibsonia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2005
This IPA pours out Tan-orange with small white head. The aroma is mild and slighly hoppy. The flavor is smooth with a medium body and can be best described as grapefruit or critus. Nice IPA try one.

Bov (10377) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 13, 2005
hazy orange colour, big foamy head, very well-hopped (what a surprise ...), strong aroma of apricot, grapefruit and cream, medium to full-bodied, slightly oily, the mouthfeel is quickly overwhelmed by a powerful bitterness which persists in a very long fruity and flowery finish - about just the right amount of bitterness for my taste - thanks to fiulijn for this beer !

Brew4Dug (139) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Definitely a session IPA, as itís malt-hop ratio is well-balanced when compared to the popular hopped up versions available from other US craft-microbrews of the style. The DFH brewery continues to intrigue me with some of the offerings made available for purchase. I prefer the 90-minute, but I am sure that 90%+ would concur with that statement. As far as session IPAís are concerned, I put Avery & Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale at the top of my personal list of favorites.
