4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The highly rated 90-Minute Imperial IPA delivered what was it promised as being a very rich and high quality beer. Like all beers it is all in the eye of the beholder with their individual tastes. Myself personally, I am not the biggest fan of IPA’s, but Dogfish Head still produced a very nice high quality beer. I would have to say like all Dogfish Head beers that the aroma was fantastic. A characteristic that really starts off the party and is often overlooked. It had a very nice heavy dry hop aroma and a white mostly lasting head. The beer had a beautiful cloudy appearance to it and surprised me with an initial sweet flavor in the beginning. The middle yielded a fruity touch with the common bitter finish with IPA’s that was quite delightful. A full body on the palate with a soft carbonated oily texture with a long lasting bitter finishes. I am always impressed with what Dogfish Head produces, and love their TV show on Discovery. Whatever it is that they come up with next, I will be they’re waiting in line.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

Tap into a shaker showing well filtered dark brown with ahalf a finger of clean white foam.
The nose shows caramel malt forwardness.
The palate is malt forward with a very light sweetness. Alcoholic spiciness on the middle. Well carbonated and medium bodied.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from World Beer Market/Sake Taniguchi. A gorgeous looking beer, clear bronze with a frothy off-white head, sticky lacing. Pine resin aroma with plenty of caramel and toffee malt sweetness. Taste excels with dominant Two-Row malt, like plum fruitcake with pine, hints of toffee and booze, citrus. Very smooth for a big beer, the bitterness feels big yet masked or balanced by the malt body. Delicious stuff, pretty faultless.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin eggshell head and light lacing. Aroma is grape juice, other fruits, and some catpiss. Initial taste is sweet. Extremely smooth mouth feel and flavors abound here. The bitterness level is medium, the alcohol taste is light for a DIPA, and the aftertaste is quite pleasant and long lasting.
