Pours clear honey amber with light carbonation and thin off-white head that laces the ring. Aroma is floral, light pine, grapefruit. Flavor is well balanced with dry hops, light orange/citrus and barley. Beautiful mix. Throw in a soft, smooth, slightly sticky palate. Great IPA.

It poured out a brilliant golden brown. It looked like I had poured alfalfa honey. It had a bold taste, long and lasting. Hints of apricot and not a lot of carbonation.. It was fantastic beer.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2008 Pours cloudy orange with a thin white, bubbly head. Very good looking brew. Lots of lacing. Very citrus hop aroma, but definitely some malt backing it up. Hops are a little more muted then I would have thought. A little spiciness in there. This is pretty well balanced. Acidic and sticky. Some bitterness in the finish. A well crafted beer. Rerate 2/7/08 Pour is clear amber/copper with a medium off white head. Lively carbonation, lots of bubbles rising. Aroma seems more crisp this time, citrus and pine resin with just a touch of malt. Taste is tame but good, very well balanced, not harsh at all. Good hop presence with citrus and pine and same rasin type fruit in the finish. Better than I remember. A little bit of alcohol burn.

One of the more interesting DIPAs out there for sure. Excellently sweet. Hops on this one play a role similiar to those in 120 minute only without being pinned down and suffocated out by the screeeching malts. Copper coolness. Piney nose, resinous but not a punch in the face. Artful and full of skill. Excellent beer

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2006 Pours with a thick rocky white head on a cloudy deep orange body. Lots of lacing. Strong aroma of citric hops. Intensely bitter taste with a very pleasant aftertaste. Thick alcoholic body.

Wow!! This 90 Minute Imperial IPA is great!! Pours out amber/golden color with a nice head. Nice fresh cirtus aroma. Very hoppy flavor; Cirtus, herbable, slighty spicy. Nice rich finish. The best IPA I ever had!!

Much like the 60 minute but a little more alcohol flavor and less attention to the balanced flavors. Not as much citrus in this one.

Appearance reminds me of mahogany thats been brushed with tung oil, golden red. Lasting thin head looks rich and creamy. Lots of bubbles. Aroma is very fresh. I detect grapefruit and fresh hops. Very similar in aroma to the 60 min IPA.. Palate is full bodied and smooth. The flavor is rich. Heavy malt and hops. Slight astringency with a reasonably dry finish. Bitterness is certainly present, but resovles before the next sip. Caramel and citrus come through. This is a wonderful IPA and and excellent beer in general. Maybe one of the finest Iíve tasted as of 12-10-05. I had high expectations of this beer having already enjoyed the 60 minute IPA and this certainly dosenít disappoint. Excellent. The high alcohol content goes concealed. Man Iíve had less than half a pint and Iíve already been smacked. I could go on and on. I love this beer!

This is a very good IPA. It has an insane amount of hops, but thereís enough barely to prevent it from being overpowering. The weakest attribute is the appearance (the head was a disappointment), but who drinks a fine IPA because it looks good?

Considering all the hops in this one, it is balanced extremely well. It actually comes off quite malty, with a sweet, biscuity beginning. This, of course transitions into a nice citrusy, piney hop bitterness. A nice beer, but actually isnít very unique. The hops are so subdued by the malt that it comes off like a pretty standard IIPA. I actually prefer the 60 minute, which I find to have jucier, brighter hops. Still, a very good beer.
