3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2008 another good ipa from dogfish. i liked this one a bit less than the 90, it seemed a bit less flowery, and obviously a lot less flowery then the 120. it was a refreshing beer nice for a hot summer day. a perfect amount of hops added to this unique brew, which poured out a beautiful gold, and smelled as well as any pale ale should. Must get fresh or it sucks, as it doesnt make for a good malt-bomb by any means.

Wonderful aroma that is matched by a intensly hoppy character!! An excellent example of an AMerican IPA...

poured cloudy orangish with a white head. aroma citrus like grapefruit, hops hints of yeast.flavor grapefruit with sugar on it, hops a touch of alcohol and a nice bitterness after taste. I did like the 90 min. better but this came in a close 2nd I am sure glad the fish finally swam to mich.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2007 Plenty of hop lace with less yeast residue than previous versions. Piney hop aroma dominates the nose more than ever. Very fresh hop bitterness leads the finish with pale malt as a chaser. Light yeast and diacetyl signature and mild dry hop notes. Huge resinous hop aftertaste. P. S. Itís even better on draft, with even less yeast signature and even fresher hops.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2005 Very nice IPA. I just like to taste the hops, so Iím not sure if the whole continual hopping strategy works for me. It does make the beer more drinkable. Doesnít anyone else think it poured a bit hazier about a year ago? Too much filtering now?

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Iím in a Dogfish head mood tonight. I really liked this one. On my current list, this ranks as my third best IPA Iíve had. Liked Lost Coast and Stone just a wee bit better. This one has great flavor, hoppy and very drinkable. If Dogfish was available here Iíd never be without it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer poors a large frothy head on a clear orange body. Aroma is significant and has intense hopy aroma of pine. Flavor is unbalanced in my opinion and does not exhibit the malty backbone of good IPAís like stone. INspite of this flaw it is refreshing and nice. Slighlty sweet initially with a significantly bitter finish. Ilook forward to trying the 90 and 120.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2010 RE-RATE. poured from bottle. Aroma is hops (of course) and ocean. Clear honey amber, thin white head. Flavor of hops and pineapple. Creamy texture. Outstanding drinkability. Another excellent DH creation.
