Drank it in California, one of the first IPA I ever drank, and one of the one I use for comparison when rating an IPA. Loved it, and will always be in my top list for IPA’s.

Passion fruit, and something else sweet on the nose. Head disappeared quick. It was white anyway. Very clear. Medium carbonation, caramel hints in aroma now, medium to low sweetness, little dry, low bitters -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Delicous. Probably the best and most balanced beer that dogfish makes. Nice and smooth.

"i actually usually like this one better than the 90 minute, which surprises me. usally for me (with hops) the bigger the better. this one is very subdued for DFH, but solid all around. good aroma and hoppy flavor. citrus, no pine, on the nose."

From my point of view, the perfect beer. Very aromatic and hoppy, not too bitter, and good ale body.

Aroma: light flowers, some grass, pine light citrus. Appearance: hazy yellow, medium, creamy, white head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: sweets intensify, heavy, ripe fruits. Overall: nice IPA, aroma somewhat light, but Palate is quite nice. Pint at Yard House - The Link, Las Vegas.

eduardovl (871) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a light orange color forming a big and bubbled and fluffy white head. Great retention and tons of lingering lacings formed and left in the glass S: Very crispy and biscuity upfront. Strong notes of sweet pale grains. Delicious hops profile: A mix of grassy, a bit citrus and a little bit piny. Notes of grapefruit, pineapple and watermelon (oh yeah! I’m not kidding ;)). Bit earthy end... Impressive T: Slightly sweet upfront followed by a crispy, and dry and biscuity taste. Notes of pale malts, grapefruit and pineapple. Moderate but greatly balanced hops bitterness. End is dry and bitter M: Light body. Good carbonation. Biscuity and piny aftertaste O: Very drinkable. Masterpiece IPA [ BA Review @ 6/5/2014 ]

Mild for an IPA or perhaps better phrased smoother. Nice taste of citrus which seems to override all the other taste. Nice aromas and wonderful balance. As for all the dogfish head products well made

6%, on tap, enjoyed but if you like this you'll love the 90 minute, it's better and stronger alcohol content! Nice American IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Some beers don’t need reviews. just ratings. I guess I could say the aroma has piny, floral hops blah blah tastes of hops and citrus blah blah blah it’s good. I gave it a 4
