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.

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. Haven’t tried the other Dogfish IPA’s 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.

tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Very good IPA. Nice orange, amber apperace very murky with tons of particles dancing around the carbanation. Nice floral and citrus hop aroma with just a bit of malt in the back. God hop flavors, could use a bit more bitterness. I like the 90 alot better but if it's a straight up IPA I want I'll still turn to HOP DEVIL.

Decent IPA, but too weak for me after Stone IPA's. Still, this brew is moderately hopped and citrusy

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 30, 2003
This bottled brew poured a small head of finely sized white colored bubbles that eft behind a carbonated transparent dark yellow colored body and a good lace. The aroma is malty with mild hops while the mouthfeel wakes up the mouth with a medium hoppy bite and relative smoothness. The flavor is not as hoppy as one might expect. There are some fruity esthers as well as some bitterness. I was not as impressed by this as I expected after having the wonderful 120 Minute IPA the day before.

Shag (2638) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Faint floral and citrus aroma. Cloudy orange appearance with a fair head. Nice hop flavor with a slight orange peel and lemon taste present. Quite bitter but sour at the same time. Not alot going on behind the hops but that's ok with this hophead. This was a nice one. Bring on the 90 and 120 minute!

OK, here goes my 100th rating. Why not do it up right, eh? From a bottle, this beer pours a nice, hazy orangish-gold with an expansive head that diminishes slowly. Nice lacing as the glass empties. Big hops in the aroma and kind of a piney scent. First sip--POW! Those hops come on strong right in the beginning. Lots of citrus & some nice minor floral notes that tickle the nose while savoring the taste. Decent maltiness, though it's certainly overwhelmed by the hops--but that's the way it should be. Very nice brew.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2003
Bottle pours a golden color with a nice head and good lace. The aroma is of hops. The flavor is a good malt - hop balance for an IPA. The palate is nice and rich for the style. Overall, I like it as a good session beer.
