(Bottle) Happiness starts with a Dogfish! Pours a thin, white, creamy head and a light amber body with much minuscule sediment. Active carbonation around the glass. Nose of corniferous trees, hops and citrus. Faint smoked aroma as well. Totally different from the 90 minute: this beer is far more fruity, lemon and spiced. The citrus definitely shows in this Dogfish example. Very enjoyable! Many thanks to HopScotch for this opportunity...

Frank (3470) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Hazy deep golden color. A ring of white foamy head leaves spots of lace. Loads of pine in the aroma with a hint of citrus. Smooth on the tongue with just a prickle of carbonation. Malty sweetness wanes perfectly into a earthy, bitter finish. An excellent beer but the big money question is how this stacks up to the 90 minute. I think the fuller flavored and equally well-balanced 90 minute is better but, in the words of Reading Rainbow’s LaVar Burton, you don’t have to take my word for it.

This is a really good IPA, top ten material for sure. In 12 oz. bottles it actually tasted better than the 90 Minute in 12 oz. bottles did. Very smooth, tasty, and hoppy. I don't get the "vegetable" reference below at all. Now if you want "chicken soup" I will be happy to offer you a Grolsch.

Very nice head , citrus and floral/resinous smell in the nose. The taste confirms the hops smeele...good balance of malt and hops...the 90 minutes had more of a wallop to it, but still...a good dogfish!

I'm sorry, I tried to like this beer so many times.. and I'm a big fan of most of Dogfish Head's beers, but this tastes like it was strained through bad vegetables.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2003
Hopheads delight. Thick, white head with a dominant hop aroma. Hop flavor and bitterness dominates over malt. Reletively enjoyable.

ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Pine and flower nose. Huge hop flavor with a bit of citrus. I can't help but taste the flavor of marijuana. Overall a really good beer.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - SEP 19, 2003
Pours a light orange color with a few bubbles. Small head. Aroma piney and slight sweet malt and citrus. A few tiny bottle conditioning floaties. Taste tart and sweetish, with a slight bitter malt, earthy hop (mystery hop x?) almost marijuana tasting middle and a bitter, only slightly dry, almost slightly wet--odd for an IPA--finish. More balanced than I expected, yet not quite as balanced as I prefer--but very close. Overall a flavorful quality IPA and a smile producer for this hophead

Not a bad Ipa. I like he 90min more. Pine, hoppy flavor. Finish is bitter, clean, and crisp.
