BT (123) - Westchester, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Bottled month or so old. Cloudy, like swimming through an orange pond (thankfully no vegetation!); tiny head...oops its gone...left an almost white rim of tiny bubbles around the edge, very little lace. A little malt, lots of hop, predictable, but a bit rough going down.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JUN 18, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2006 12oz - Aroma is a bit faint. Floral hops and notes of carmel malt. A copper color with little head but good lacing. Flavor is a bit of a surprise for such a highly regarded brew. It has the hops, and the malts to smooth it out, but just doesn’t seem all that special. A sticky palate leaves the flavor lingering. I think I’ve let the hype get in the way of it. A better than average ipa, but not the best.

10oz chalice using "Randall" to hop-infuse from Jan 06 Indy gathering at BW3 downtown - 8/4/8/4/17 = 4.1
Wow, the Randall mixed with a fresh pint of 90 Minute is a hop heads dream! Like chewing on fresh hops. There is still a gracious malt back to balance the assult. Pours cloudy orange with a nice creamy head and great lacing. Palate is clean and smooth for such a hoppy monster. If you ever have the opportunity to drink it this way, do it.

kxkeller (32) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2005 A clear, golden color with a beige head. A nice, fresh hop-dominated nose. Very nice, piny hop taste balanced by a surprisingly sweet body. Some alcoholic notes. The aftertaste is smoothly hoppy without much dryness. A real nice beer.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2005
12 oz. Bottle: Tranparent medium orange, pours a largish tan head which is mostly diminishing. Aromas are of fruity hops which fade to expose overbalanced sweet malts and yeast. Flavor mimicks the aroma for the most part with the some mild hops being the first recognizable flavor until the sticky sweet malts take over all the way to the finish. Mouthfeel is soft with little to no dryness, and slightly sticky.

MHED (114) - lisle, USA - JUN 12, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2006 Aliitle different in the smaller bottles. A nice rich amber color, huge Pacific N.W. hop aroma and flavor lends way to a well balanced malt backbone. A solid beer that has paved the way for many.

MikeT (76) - Hollis, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Bright amber colour with a floral herb and sweet aroma that poured a thick off-white head with some great lacing. Well balanced taste of malt and big hops and citrus ending with some alchohal and bitterness. Nice for a high octane IPA.

SNOB (13) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Light amber (almost iridescent) in color with a large, creamy head. The nose hardly detectable, but remniscant of light fruit bread. Sweet at first, then bitter. Seemed thin in texture, but lively. I was a bit disappointed. (Bad bottle?) The beer seemed very immature.

thehinge (268) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 5, 2005
A lively, (from the hopping, I think) honey colored pour with a white head that lingers a good while. Lacing is very good. Aroma has hints of bread/yeasty. Taste is very nice.....fruit on the front end and nice bitter, hoppy finish. I would recommend this. I gotta say.....I don’t wonder why Dogfish has stayed in business for a while with beers like this.

chrisfrey (15) - Franklin, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Nice yeasty aroma, you can smell the alcohol. Nice fruity flavor with clean, bitter aftertaste. Even though you can smell the alcohol, there is not much taste of it.

Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Bottled.. Poures a clear amber color with a small head. Aromas of pine, oranges, sweet malt and a little grapefruit. Flavor is a great balance of pine/citrus hops and sweet malts and almost no taste of alcohol. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. Great IIPA!!
