keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2006
Purchased in bottle in Menomonee Falls, WI. IPAs are growing on me more and more, ever since I tried Two Brothers Heavy-Handed IPA. I recall that one being quite good, but I could drink DFH 60 Minute all day. I naturally expected strong piney/citrus flavors and more bitterness than I am used to in a beer, but it was all done very well. The aroma is mostly hops, of course. The bitterness that I expected to taste however, is prevalent, but suits the beer so well you dont even mind. The mouthfeel is more solid than I had anticipated, lending a feeling that you are really drinking a fine brew. This is so good, I am going to search out the next step (90 Minute).

On tap at Redbones in Somerville, amber-orangeish color, with a frothy white head, wiht some floral hops, with piney, cedary accents, with a coniferous note emerging in second, and a caramelized malt touch in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a floral hop character, and some piney, cedary, coniferous flavors, with a sweet caramelized malt, oily hop buds, leading towards a flowery hop pineyish finish.

Real thin. Too much so. Heard alot about this beer before I tried it. Dont understand what the hell all the hype was about. A decent ipa, nothing more.

Tessic (1131) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2006
This IPA poured a clear yellow colour with a short lived head. First sniff was full of scents of ripe fruit, apples and apricots with a slice of celery. First taste was very very hoppy. Slightly smoky with a lingering flavour of ??? Pot??? Flavours of smoke/peat with celery, fruit are very present. The finish is slightly dry with a lingering flowery flavour on the palate. Not your ordinary IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 12oz bottle-A golden light amber color with an abundnace of a head. A nice hoppy flavor with a malty finish. A nice medium body. Over all a good IPA.

vyvvy (6309) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Clear golden pour with a good sized white head that is patchy when it settles. Aroma is very balanced between the hops and malts - quite rich. Starts off with a very rich malt taste, then the finish quite a bit of prickly bitter malt. However, it is offset nicely with the malt that stays the whole way though. A wonderfully balanced and well crafted IPA.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Orange colour with some brown/dark golden in there as well. Pillowy head that is kind of soapy. Do I even need to say it? Hoppy arouma, but not too over powering. Mostly resin and a bit of floral. Very piney hop taste, throw in some citrus as well. Nice base of malt, but nothing especially interestign or note worthy.

Padron4KM (809) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 6, 2006
12 oz bottle, bottled on date not notched out on the lable. clear goldish orange, creamy off white head. head slowly collapses leaving lovely rings of lace around the glass. Aroma is fruity and piney. fresh and clean.
Grapefruity flavors wrapped in a velvety smooth malt body. a little spice in there as well. Tasty.

ugly (3) - toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2006 does not count
The scent is akin to what I imagine a douche commercial would smell like, and I mean that in the best way possible. Pours sunset orange with a quickly dissipating head the colour your landlord paints the new apartment when he feels white is too austere. So smooth the bottom of the glass is reached much too quickly. The entire shipment of this beer to Toronto sold out in 3 days. Makes you wonder if the grassmunchers over at the LCBO will ever understand the first lecture given to business majors in economy 101.

Bottled - Pours a nice copper / light amber with a nice frothy off-white head. Strong Hop nose, just what I was expecting from an American IPA. Bitter citrus / grapefruit hop flavors hit you instantly but are balanced by a mild coffee malt finish. A nice no surprises IPA. I would definitely drink it again.
