Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - SEP 19, 2003
Pours a light orange color with a few bubbles. Small head. Aroma piney and slight sweet malt and citrus. A few tiny bottle conditioning floaties. Taste tart and sweetish, with a slight bitter malt, earthy hop (mystery hop x?) almost marijuana tasting middle and a bitter, only slightly dry, almost slightly wet--odd for an IPA--finish. More balanced than I expected, yet not quite as balanced as I prefer--but very close. Overall a flavorful quality IPA and a smile producer for this hophead

Not a bad Ipa. I like he 90min more. Pine, hoppy flavor. Finish is bitter, clean, and crisp.

A fine effort from the dogfish people. Not quite as much flavor and power as the 90, but a good IPA, nevertheless. Very well done.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 9, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2007 2003 bottle Has a warm yellow/orange color with some darker brown tinges. Very cloudy. Aroma smells of floral hops, but not overpoweringly so. Has some sweeter notes. Opens up somewhat wet for an IPA. Good crisp cascade flavor is balanced with a nice amount of malt. Wonderful attempt at simulating a cask ale in a bottle. Great carbonation level and dosent kill you with hops. The flavor dries out somewhat towards the finish, but there are some slightly spicy/bitter notes, along with some dry orange/pear notes on the finish. In all though, the body is carried through with lots of warm soft honey tones with just a hint of acidity sneaking in from the hops. Tremendous effort here. Encouraged to try the 90 and 120. 2004 bottle Wow, this stuff is powerfully bitter and acidic. It’s mainly the acidity that ruins the palate, it is just biting. Immediate hops assault. Wow, where did the balance that I remember go?

Extremely pale taste and after taste was even worse. I think I still have a strange face because of it.

Good malt aroma. Good balance of malt and bitterness. Not quite as big as I expected. Still another good beer from a great brewery.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Yikes, this one was a blaring disappointment. Waaaay too fizzy mouthfeel, not bitter enough, and it has that Sweet-Tartish candy quality that ruins the entire mess. Bad.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2003 Rating #150__ This beer was acquired in trade from jgb9348, thanks buddy. I rated the 90min IPA for my 100th so I decided to rate the 60min IPA 50 beers later.
This pale copper colored IPA pours a fine two finger off white head, and presents a strong lacing, very fizzy. The hops are initially sweet, reminiscent of strawberries, orange zest, and honey. The flavor in the finish is tart, some malt apparent, a bit toasty. This is a tremendous IPA; I far enjoyed this one over of the 90min. Thanks Jeremy!

Cloudy orange color with a white head. This beer is pure hops - aroma and flavor are flowery, and the finish is pretty bitter. Not bad.
