4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent IPA, but too weak for me after Stone IPA's. Still, this brew is moderately hopped and citrusy

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floral nose, khaki gold color, low head. Got a fruity-cherry thing going on in the body. Honey and citrusy hop end. A little gritty going done. Bright hops and overall very nice. Like the 90 better.

Uh, hops of course and thanks Dogfish not as sweet as the 120 IPA / what I still have a problem to understand. Orange brew, no head, flat carbonation. The hops is not very aggressive /still round and smooth .

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Not perfect, but damn near.... the hoppiness and citrus overtones to this lucious brew! Yes, it's not as alcoholic as its 90 and 120 minute brothers, but I drink it for the taste (not the buzz).
