allmyvinyl (5502) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2015
Bottle thanks to Ashton McCobb. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Aromas of plant stalk, pine, resin. Taste is sweet at the start, then a big whack of bitterness, cleaning up at the finish. Very drinkable.

Bottle thanks to Tom. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Light hop haze. Nose - citrus, flowers and plant stalks. Taste - big citrus, and more big citrus. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - beautifully balanced.

This IPA taste has more a malty taste than a hoppy taste. Reminds me of a lighter Imperial IPA. Has a nice floral aroma with hints of bread. Very smooth and the flavor makes a smooth transition from malty to a bitter hoppy dry finish. Would recommend this to anyone!

The aroma is intreging to the nostil on first smell. The taste is the best out of all of the minute IPA from them. Smooth hoppy flavor with nice clean finish. A great and very easy drinking beer.

Hopmaestro (362) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2015
Aroma is grassy and hoppy flowers as expected. Taste is slightly leaning towards the malty side with the bitter hops entering towards the end and slowly takes over. Thereís a pleasant citric aura that never takes over completely. A solid IPA brewed the way just as I like them. The American way!

A strong IPA of substance, complexity, and refinement. Many IPAs are over-the-top in one hop element or another, eg grapefruit or pine, but the dogfish 60 min is about balance. Strong without the alcohol overload and sharpness If an imperial. Sierra Nevada Torpedo also right in this top of the class IPA. Beer snobs will poo-poo their relative popularity for craft beers, but it's because their both damn good beers!

tfontana (61) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle from Epsom Circle Market, Epsom, NH. Aroma is hoppy cedar and a little bit earthy and grassy. Appearance is hazy slightly orangey-yellow with sparse effervescence, minimal white head and mild lacing. Taste is lightly bitter--pleasantly hopped. Palate is medium bodied with lively carbonation that zings the tongue all over. Finish is mildly bitter, dry and abrupt. Overall, with all the hoopla that accompanies this beer, I expected something more dramatic. Even if I didnít like it (Iím not a huge fan of IPAís), I expected something that would stand out and this just seems drinkable, competent and fairly pedestrian. At the very least it isnít disgustingly hoppy so itís got that going for it. A bit of a letdown after all this time. Definitely wouldnít spend the money on this versus others.

Served very cold, into a frosted glass, but still managed to give a good ipa flavour

commonmac (542) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2015
Tap in a mug at Easy Tiger in Austin with commonshawn. Appearance is pretty gold with a minimal but forceful head. Aromas of citrus and hops abound giving the impression this is going to be a credible IPA. Taste is standard IPA fare with plenty of hop presence. Very smooth and drinkable. Solid IPA that doesn?t disappoint. I had pretty high expectations and it checked all the boxes. Brewed in 60 min. Consumed in 10 min. Probably the sign of a good beer.

Espuma presente, aroma de lúpulo e leve azedo. Gosto lupulado forte com toque spicy e álcool excelentemente bem inserido. Vale a pena
