Lots of hops in the taste, enough bitterness to get your attention but not enough to ruin it. Although not my favorite style this wasn't bad. Very hoppy yet drinkable.

(draught) Disclaimer: I do like this beer. Am I at McDonald's? I ordered a beer i thought. Nice head with medium white bubbles that have decent retention. Coppery, hazy color. Aroma is hoppy, with a strong sitrous smell. No wonder--flavor is ooverabundantly grapefruit. In fact, I think I am drinking grapefruit juice. Strong straw flavored aftertaste. I usually only drink grapefruit juice at breakfast. I see that it is not just for breakfast anymore.

Nice light brown color. Clear despite being bottle conditioned. Little white head. Citrus hop nose. Dry hop flavor. Great IPA!

Draught, at the Blind Tiger, NY.</br> The last beer at the blind tiger. Golden bitter ale with lots and lots of hop. Strong tasting really long bitter hop after taste. This is the score Iíve got but Iíve noted it for re-rating earlier in a session to double check. I suspect this rating has been affect by alcohol and excitement.

elsberry (87) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2004
A hazy orange/copper shade, with a pronounced grapefruit taste and pine smell. I liked the 60 minute, but would love to have the 90 min. Unique flavor and a nice thick head that laces the glass. Overall a pretty good IPA, with a good sharp hops bite and bitterness. Nice one.

SpringsLicker (3156) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2004
I didn't think too much about this in a side by side, but it fared better on it's own. It's light honey color with a good long lasting head provided a source for a wonderful flowery hop nose. A lightly bitter hoppiness with a long dry finish. Needs a little more maltiness in the balance, but not a bad IPA.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Pretty orange color. Grapefruit is dominant in both taste and smell. A mildly hopped, citrusy IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2005 Weak IPA, I thought. The hops seemed nicely balanced, but too reserved. Aroma was nice, citrus and herbal, but also quite mild. Havenít tried the other Dogfish IPAís but this one lends some promise to the others. Nice logo, BTW.

So much better than I first gave it credit for. Great bitterness to finish and clean all the way across the palate make this a great, although hearty, session brew.
