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

Redmash (2) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 10, 2006 does not count
I donít see what the appeal is to this beer. It starts off with all malt and sweet. Finishes with a small amount of aroma in the back end. Totally off balance for a Double IPA. Nice dark color. Hops need to be more upfront and available in the nose. Closer to a barleywine than anything. Not very good.

wineandbrew (40) - Steilacoom, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Bottle from Steilacoom Wine and Brew. Beer pours a deep caramel color, very dark even for an imperial IPA. A good amount of head that lasts, nose is definately sweet, and hop, some apricot and mollasis. Mouthfeel is 9%, not harsh, just 9%... this is a BIG IPA and has alot of malt in it... perfectly wonderful for IPA fans and Barley Wine fans alike... Great brew!

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2006
(12.27.05) 12 oz brown bottle purchased from DiCarlo Wine and Spirits (formerly Armanettiís), Mundelein, IL. 9% ABV. Orange hued ale having a small diminishing white head with spare lacing. No discernable carbonation. Strong hoppy flower aroma. Medium-to-full bodied IPA that starts with light malt sweetness and intense hoppy flavors. Finishes dry with lingering bitterness. Though this beer has a high hop profile, it is not an aggressively hoppy beer as the hops are well supported by a firm malt foundation. This was my favorite Dogfish head IPA as compared to its 60 minute and 120 minute IPA counterparts. Another superb offering by Dogfish Head brewery.

Pours a golden amber color. Aromas of floral hops, some sweetness, and a touch of fruit. Flavors of hops, pine and citrus. Light body with a bittersweet finish and long aftertaste. Thanks dhrjericho!

Jan. 5, 2006; 12 oz. bottle.

As many others have noted, the alcohol is dangerously well-hidden. Is there such a thing as a "session" double IPA? :-)

Balanced with a huge body, itís just a shade too sweet for my personal taste. Nonetheless, a very impressive brew; and I shall enjoy working my way through this four-pack.

Nice pour with a good head. Imperial; not a dry hop; Iíll have some saved for the cellar.

This brew poured out orange-amber with a real hoppy aroma.The alcohol is well hidden and the taste is of grapefruit and mega-hops.I can see how people really like this,but its not my personal style.

IslandHaole (1133) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - JAN 1, 2006
#800-A clear amber/orange brew with a cream colored head. Aggressive hops, floral, honey, a touch of Lambic-ish tart scents as well. Suprisingly smooth and well balanced. Loads of hops yes, but to me, it is tasty and a nice meld of flavors. The alcohol is seemingly non-existant, tucked away very nicely which makes this dangerously easy to drink. I do like this one, sweet yes but not overly syrupy. Crazy hops but enough malts to balance it. Nice fruity flavor with pine and citrus hops. I look forward to the 60 and 120 minute versions!

This has a strong aroma of hops that has citrus and grapefruit scents lingering in the background. It is maize colored with a glaze of a white head. This beer enters the mouth smoothly distributing a hearty taste of hops with a mild grapefruit taste creeping in. The palate is enticed with a nice flirtation between sweetness and bitterness. It fades leaving the a nice hoppy taste lingering in the throat.
