Golden in color with a medium head. Sweet, piney maple aroma....not as hoppy as I expected....somewhat spicy, pretty good.

This seems a little too tame for an IPA, more of a pale ale in my eyes. Maybe it was the nuttyish malt flavor that has it sliding away from hardcore IPA action. Regardless, its a tasty beer, golden clowdy color, little bit of foam on it also. Flavor is nice, smooth with a decent hoppy finish, but not too strog of one.

Bottle. Light amber, big head. Intense IPA aroma. The flavor is a bit more tame that I expected; it doesn't blow you away with the intense hoppiness. Nice grassy flavor, great overall, I liked it better than the 90-minute version.

egajdzis (5456) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2003 Pours a golden color with a large white head that left beautiful lacing on my glass. Citrus hop aroma can be smelled from two feet away. Initial sweet (similar to the bubblegum aroma I found in the 90 min) hop taste with a bitter hop finish. Very good, very hoppy, but one I could drink every day. I must be a hophead.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a big head. Almost the same exact color as Sam Adams Summer Ale. Hoppy (citrus) aroma. I do not consider myself a hophead, but this may convert me. Nice and citrusy on the palate with carbonation evident. Nice, hoppy finish. Another good brew from Dogfish Head.

Golden colored, medium-sized white head. No cloudiness at all, which was unexpected. (Edit: Ah ha! The 2nd glass was much more cloudy. Seems the little floaties were contregating at the bottom) Aroma is strong and floral from the hops, with hints of pine-cone and grapefruit. Much (much!) less hop flavor than the 90 Minute older brother, but along with that, very little malt to balance it out. Too watery on the palate, and could stand to use a bit more carbonation (which is shocking to hear myself say). I feel a tad disappointed, as this beer seems too thin and unbalanced. I think if I mixed this with 90 Minute to make a 75 Minute IPA, I would be tons happier.

Pours a nice copper with a huge hop bouquet. Flavor is also exceptionally hoppy with a nice malt backbone to balance out. Curious to know what mystery hop X is. A very good IPA from one of my favorite micros.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2003
Hoppy, malt and caramel aroma. Hazy orange, large cream coloured head, hop floaties, plenty of lace. Big hops flavour at first, orange then some malt. Very full bodied, crisp, resiny, and a good hops bitterness. A fine IPA!

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2005 Re-rate: I feel my first rating missed the point, so here goes - Beer pours dark golden with lively carbonation and a retained egg white head. Aroma is enjoyable with the wonderful Dogfish hops being omnipresent and a light presence of cereal/biscuit maltiness. Wonderful hoppy flavor. I am not sure what Mystery Hop X is, but I really like it. Fantastic session IPA!!!
