(draught) Disclaimer: I do like this beer. Am I at McDonald's? I ordered a beer i thought. Nice head with medium white bubbles that have decent retention. Coppery, hazy color. Aroma is hoppy, with a strong sitrous smell. No wonder--flavor is ooverabundantly grapefruit. In fact, I think I am drinking grapefruit juice. Strong straw flavored aftertaste. I usually only drink grapefruit juice at breakfast. I see that it is not just for breakfast anymore.

Nice light brown color. Clear despite being bottle conditioned. Little white head. Citrus hop nose. Dry hop flavor. Great IPA!

Draught, at the Blind Tiger, NY.</br> The last beer at the blind tiger. Golden bitter ale with lots and lots of hop. Strong tasting really long bitter hop after taste. This is the score Iíve got but Iíve noted it for re-rating earlier in a session to double check. I suspect this rating has been affect by alcohol and excitement.

elsberry (87) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2004
A hazy orange/copper shade, with a pronounced grapefruit taste and pine smell. I liked the 60 minute, but would love to have the 90 min. Unique flavor and a nice thick head that laces the glass. Overall a pretty good IPA, with a good sharp hops bite and bitterness. Nice one.

I didn't think too much about this in a side by side, but it fared better on it's own. It's light honey color with a good long lasting head provided a source for a wonderful flowery hop nose. A lightly bitter hoppiness with a long dry finish. Needs a little more maltiness in the balance, but not a bad IPA.

Pretty orange color. Grapefruit is dominant in both taste and smell. A mildly hopped, citrusy IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2005 Weak IPA, I thought. The hops seemed nicely balanced, but too reserved. Aroma was nice, citrus and herbal, but also quite mild. Havenít tried the other Dogfish IPAís but this one lends some promise to the others. Nice logo, BTW.

So much better than I first gave it credit for. Great bitterness to finish and clean all the way across the palate make this a great, although hearty, session brew.

tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Very good IPA. Nice orange, amber apperace very murky with tons of particles dancing around the carbanation. Nice floral and citrus hop aroma with just a bit of malt in the back. God hop flavors, could use a bit more bitterness. I like the 90 alot better but if it's a straight up IPA I want I'll still turn to HOP DEVIL.

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Decent IPA, but too weak for me after Stone IPA's. Still, this brew is moderately hopped and citrusy

This bottled brew poured a small head of finely sized white colored bubbles that eft behind a carbonated transparent dark yellow colored body and a good lace. The aroma is malty with mild hops while the mouthfeel wakes up the mouth with a medium hoppy bite and relative smoothness. The flavor is not as hoppy as one might expect. There are some fruity esthers as well as some bitterness. I was not as impressed by this as I expected after having the wonderful 120 Minute IPA the day before.
