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.

Bot-con. Wow. At 50°F there is a bit of toast, a clean high hop flavor citric and herbal like parsley volatiles, as it warms the balance of bitterness and malt becomes more apparent. It"s an atypical IPA this way. Some fruity offshoots here... suggestions of guava. Now warmer at 59°F some light doughy aromas. Nothing ever that powerful aroma or flavorwise. This is a warm, friendly gentle giant.

fraternie (826) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2010 A pretty good IPA, much better balanced and a lot easier to take than the 90 Minute, although doesn’t show as much depth or complexity. Hop finish is still powerful but not overly so, and there is no lingering alcohol flavor. Flavor is dominant citrus, as grapefruit, orange and a bit of sweet banana came through the malt for me. Finishes with a distinct steel mineral note.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2003 Geez, this was tough to find, so I'm shocked 30 people have had it already! On tap at the Blind Tiger Ale House. Much less bitter than the 90-minute IPA. Really a fairly ordinary IPA with some sweetness that I quite enjoyed. Also on tap at the Waterfront Ale House.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 19, 2002
Fruity floral nose on this golden orange coloured brew. Big whitish head, sheets of lace all the way to the bottom of the pint. More malt than I expected, medium bodied, and giant hops, overbearing, big, piney, resinous hops. Delicious, very quaffable and thirst quenching.

This was almost as good as the 90 minute, but just a little more mellow. Excellent.
