From Bottle. Golden amber pour with a nice white head that quickly diminishes to a soapy ring around the edges of my glass. Lightly citrus aroma with a sappy cedar cone note and some rye cracker. Medium bodied, with a nice clean, creamy carbonation. Surprisingly gentle flavors of caramel malts that precedes its hoppy side. The hops are well rounded and smooth, leaving a refreshing smack of blue spruce on my palate. This is a much better example than a sample I had in a previous un-rated tasting. Thanks, Bert!

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2006 Great IPA. Pours a nice honey color with a thin white head. Hoppy, grapefruity aroma. Super drinkable and rightfully hoppy with a clean, bitter finish. Its a good everyday version of its big brothers.

Boston Dec 05 got this in a local offy. If you like hoppy beer then you will probably like this, I did. Pours a dark golden brown colour very good aroma, nice crisp bitter beer, that goes down well.

I was lucky enough to try this while i was in Florida. Great flavor, although a little lacking. Aroma and color were fantastic. A beer that everyone should try.

Im sure this is good for what it is, but Im nort a fan of hoppy beer. Clear, crisp color. Bitter aftertaste.

This is a great IPA. This is one of the best IPAs from the east coast. DFH is one of my top 5 favorite breweries. This one has a nice herbal hop flavor and is very drinkable for an IPA. This and the 90 have been in my fridge quite a bit.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 9, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2011 (Bottled on 02/09/2006) A serviceable IPA that at least for my tastes looses merit, because I am not a huge fan of beers fermented with Ringwood yeast. None, the less there is a good balance of malt and hops and the Ringwood seems to have been toned down which bodes well for me.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2016 Very good IPA.This beer is one of the reasons why I love dogfish head, they know how to brew a great IPA. Weel hopped with a balanced bitter bite to it. Very drinkable, almost addicting flavor. Heads and toes over most IPA?s. Cheers! 10 year anniversary re-rate! The 2 big things that changed were the aroma and palate. The aroma was very peppery than the last rate with a soapy scent. Flavor of caramel, spice and pine. Palate is thick and syrupy.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2006
UPDATED: APR 10, 2006 Pretty good IPA. Aroma is all hops. Huge rocky white head. Flavor is right on target for an IPA. Heavy on the hops and a good amount of pale malts holding up the back end. Drys out on the end with some bitterness as expected from an IPA. Has a couple of sharp edges, mostly from the high hop rate, but thats not a negative, just a facet of the beers complexity. Its an interesting brew to drink, but not as polished as the 90 Min IIPA. $9.49 for a six pack at Broudys, Orange Park FL.

This is a great, well balanced IPA. Its like a toned-down version of the 90 Minute. I love the 90 Minute more and this beer is like its little brother
