Esquire Magazine calls our 90 Minute I.I.PA., "perhaps the best I.P.A. in America." An Imperial I.P.A. brewed to be savored from a snifter. A big beer with a great malt backbone that stands up to the extreme hopping rate. This beer is an excellent candidate for use with Randall The Enamel Animal! 90 ibu

Bière achetée 7€ dans une cave à bière connue de Paris (20e Arr), je m’attendais à avoir de l’amertume comme toute Imperial IPA (surtout américaine), et quelle ne fut pas ma déception en goûtant cette bière de la mythique brasserie Dogfish Head. Rien, pas d’amertume, juste une belle couleur cuivrée. Rien même d’une simple IPA. Est-ce la faute au temps passé en cave ? Ma déception ne saurait rester silencieuse et je me dois vous en faire part. Bad mood.

beerplace (912) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2016
12 oz bottle from Elizabeth Station. Bottled 08-Jul-2016. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Aroma is malty and some European hops. Same character taste with citrusy hoppy bitterness and boozy notes. Good beer, but not so good as lots of other American IIPAs.

Bosbouw (2688) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2016
Heldere koper kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt fruitig zoetig, mout, suiker. Smaakt zoetig, kruiden, hop. Aparte smaak. Redelijk zwaar en zoetig. Droge en late bittere afdronk.

MarcoDL (4208) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle. Orange copper color. Aroma has bready malt, pine and wort. Taste is bitter and malty, with pine, dry grassy hop, mild booze and sweet malt. Bitter dry finish. I understand the historical relevance, but it’s too piney and malty for me.

Hoppy but flavorful, a little spice, an excellent well-balanced beer! Top of my list! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tapefuzz (150) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 12, 2016
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber with minimal off-white head. Aroma of caramel and fruit. Tastes of caramel, raisins, fruit, with a nuttiness to it and light notes of pine. Sweet, malty finish with faint hints of alcohol. Only lightly bitter, but the hops are very present and well-balanced. Medium body and full mouthfeel.

Ulysse (441) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2016 Light hoppy aroma. Rather unexpected. Minimal top. Alcohol warming sensation. Malty feeling. Bitterness paste for the mouth. Overall good taste for an IPA. Not the image I got when looking at the label. Not really bitter nor aromatic. I expected a heavy weight but this brew feels out of its category. Still very enjoyable to drink

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
0,33 bottle from the US - Orange jam, caramel, lemon oils and pine needles. The flavor has tons of toasted bread, spice, resin and is dank as the day is long. Powerful caramel and breadcrust finish. WIll get better with age!
