Thanks IPFreely for getting me a bottle of this. And thank you dogfish head for making such an amazing beer. Body is copper colour with just a touch of white foam resting on top. Aroma is hoppy with some fine candy notes that balance things out quite nicely. Taste is hoppy bitterness to a great extent. Also noticeable is a caramel type sweetness. Again nice balance. Smooth mouthfeel with only a slight alcohol aftertaste. Iíd love to have more of these.

Ale Fest Fort Wayne 2004. This bottled brew poured a small head of fine clear colored mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was a softly carbonated transparent orange color. The aroma was mildly hopped with some caramel notes to it. The mouth feel was medium strength hoppy with a bit at the start and then smoothened in the finish. The flavor contained notes of caramel malt and piney hops.

Nice beer with a bitter after taste. Nice hoppy flavor. Not much head. A nice IPA. Needs to tone the after taste down.

Citrus aroma. Dark orange color. Bit of lace for attractiveness. Hop attack on tongue and bitterness on palate. Unique mellower finish, after all those bubbles.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Poured orange/yellow with minor head. Had a medium grapefruit aroma. The taste was defintely grapefruit with a good amount of hops and a slight alcohol burn, much less so than the 120. Aftertaste had some spice in it as well.

On tap at "Big City" in Allston, MA. Heavy and bold. A mix of cream and a dash of spice. Feels heavy in the glass, and has minimal froth. Donít expect the beer to jump at you extrovertedly; this is one that seeps down into your corpus.

Great beer! Hops, hops, and more hops. Has an amber like color, with a little head. There is a hint citrus and a lot of hops. One of the best IPAís I have ever tasted.

Damn. What a beer. Hoppy, bitter and smooth. I love you 90 Minute IPA. Pours amber with a tan head and goes down fantastic. Best IPA Iíve had.
