12oz Bottle Packaged in Jan. I like the look of this IPA. A nearly clear gold with a huge snow white head that leaves lots of lacing and retains well. Has a fragrant hop aroma that is floral and slightly grassy with some fresh malt in the background. The body is medium and smooth with a slight chewiness. The flavor takes much from the aroma. Hoppy, bitter and slightly grassy with a malt that evens everything out. Leaves a lingering bitterness. Overall a very good and balanced IPA.

Mild hop aroma with fluffy white head. Poured hazy orange. Starts smooth with a crreping hop bite. A tad dusty in the finish.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2010 This beer poured a nice thick white head and had a pale brown/amber appearance. A very hoppy taste which I expected, not my favorite Dogfish Head but no doubt an awesome beer.

(bottle) pours attractive amber, slightly cloudy; aromas of pine and citrus predominate; taste is well-balanced with pleasant acidity balanced by fruitiness and, of course, bitterness of pine-ey hops; slightly oily mouthfeel.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2004
Slightly clouded amber hue with a small white head. Light hoppy aroma. Highly hoppy taste with hints of nut and roasted malt. Not fantastically hopped but still a fantastic beer.

This ale has a mellow hoppy taste with moderate amount of lacing. Definitely drink this IPA when you don’t want to be bitten by the hops; a lingering flavor with a distinct smooth malty finish. The finish is what makes this IPA truly unique, a perfect balance between citrus, malt and floral hops. Many of my friends don’t care for most IPA’s hoppy taste, but this smooth IPA has won them over. I recommend this beer as one of the best IPA's you can drink.

Holdwine (1104) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2004
Perfect looking IPA with a fresh hops aroma (pine needles?).Nice white, foamy head. Get ready for the fresh hops explosion. (Minor complaint- tough on trying to pair with food, needs to be its own meal). Malting is okay, but who cares. A beer for serious hopheads.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2004 On tap. Pours a deep golden color. Malt aromas, which are also present in the flavor, but without being too overbearing. As my father put it "this is what real english beer tastes like" (an english ex-patriot himself). However, in my opinion, this is an excellent beer, worth seeking out. I can't wait to try the 90 minute!

bottle. 8.49 a six pack but i think it's about time someone raised the standards. I'm not a hophead however dogfish's 60 and 90 minute ipa are great beers and mask the hops real well. aroma of floral hops were in your face especially right after the pour. beautiful cloudy golden color with a medium sized head and great carbonation. The flavor was nicely balanced between malt and hops. At first you taste the hops and citrus but it doesn't stay there, and that's what i like about this beer. The finish was smooth but not complex. I could see myself drinking this one regularly without getting tired. a great change from ordinary ipa's. i can't believe it's 60 ibu's.

Aurelius (4530) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2004
Nice beady foam head on top of an oaky, tea-and-lemon hazy beer. Lackluster bottle and label. Cutting western hop aroma, similar to tuppers perhaps, with unfortunate cat urine overtones. Drinks much smoother than it smells, with a good acid balance and a buttery citrus quality. Mouth is smooth and the hops don't cling.
