WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2003
White lace on a reddish gold body. Floral nose. Hops and malt in balance. A really good IPA, overshadowed by their own 90 minute and now their 120 minute IPAs.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Bottle: clear golden orange, pine/fruity aroma. Full with a good amount of hops, not too overpowering. Somewhat bitter and dry finish, not as flowery as the 90 minute, but quite good. Has that Dogfish unique flavor.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Cloudy golden color with a nice frothy lace. Excellent aroma of hops citrus fruit and what seems like vanilla. Starts somewhat creamy and mild hoppy, balanced by tones of slightly sweet malt and doughieness. The bitter hops come through in the finish just a touch to strong for my liking. An excellent beer, right up there with my all time favorite IPAs.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Pours a clear amber color with a small, lingering white head. The aroma is fruity with hops and has a slight earthiness with malts mixed in. Full body with medium carbonation, the flavor is perfectly balanced between the malts and hops up front. The finish is slightly sweet at first, but then erupts in hop flavor with a touch of bitterness. This is a treat and quite an excellent IPA.

OldGrowth (2651) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 8, 2003
UPDATED: APR 7, 2003 Sour nose. Golden color. Sweet doughy. Sticks to your tongue. Just not a flavor I like. Yeast? If you like Hop Devil, You should like this.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 4, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2003 Update: I suppose the herbaceous hops are really growing on me: I bought a six the other day and haved reached every night as soon as I get home. I admit that I was wrong. Old: Bottle. Nice fluffy white head over hazy gold body. Enormous herbaceous hop nose with tons of herbal, woody and spicy hop flavor. Some detectable malt, but hops are the whole story--the 90 Minute IPA is much better balanced. THis one fails to appeal to me simply on account of the fact that I don't like this particular hop variety. Warrior hops?

Good clean taste, with bitter hop complexity. Slight fruit smell, not apparent in the taste though.

Had this on tap at the Grey Lodge in Phila. This was a special Dry Hopped version. Nice solid IPA. Good hop bite. However I like my IPAs really hoppy.

This one screams hops by the concept and the name but it's not as intimidating as it sounds. It's still has a big flowery nose and a grapefruit accent in the flavor. A very good effort.
