Hazy dark orange colour with a few little floaties. Thick white head that quickly disappears, leaving a lot of lace behind. Aroma is thick and resiny with notes of citrus and earthy hops. Mouthfeel is full and slightly creamy. Flavour has just a hint of sweetness before the tongue-tingling bitterness kicks in. Lingering finish is bitter (duh!), but with a slightly caramely backbone.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 7, 2003
Pours with an orange-amber body topped by a thick rocky head with a decent amount of lace. Slightly sweet grapefruity hop aroma with a subtle maltiness. Slightly Sweet grapefruity hop flavor with bitter, salty notes and a lasting bitter hoppy finish. Medium to full bodied and smooth with a slight tingle from the carbonation. A damn good IPA, but the 90 min. is the one for me.

God, i love that Mystery Hop X. gwood stuff. i have to agree with Volgon, this is a lot less intense than the 90 Minute IPA, but still some wicked great stuff.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Murky orange with a white head. Citrus and earthy hops aroma, starts and ends bitter. Less intense than 90 Minute IPA, but certainly easier to drink for the night.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2004 This is my favorite of the nn-minute IPAs. Perhaps because it is somewhat of a 'session' beer, however more likely because of it's wonderful flavor.

Slightly hazy orangish color with a medium uneven off-white head. Pine aroma is out front, first the needles then more of a bark/sap of an evergreen. Crisp pine taste, not bitter but smooth. I like it.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2004 Summer Gathering 2003: Sweet, almost honeyish, caramel nose. Clear amber. Very bitter flavor, thin, wanting of a greater malt backbone.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2003
(Bottle) Deep golden cloudy liquid witha few speckles. A small creamy looking head of off white bubbles. Heavy herbal and floral aroma with a touch of pine, grapefruit and butterscotch. Slight hint of vinyl in the nose. Fresh hops flavors from the start. Light malt on the way. Quite acidic throughtout the quaff. Rather smooth feel, but the biting acid prickles the mouth and tongue. Interesting brew to me. One I really want to like, but I seem to find small faults that really distract.

Rich hazy copper w/ fine finger of darkish gold foam. Fresh, powerful pine & citrus nose w/ light minty notes. Full, resiny feel. Intensely bitter w/ fresh pine & citrus (grapefruit) flavour & lots of malt to back it up. Excellent.
