Golden pale and crystal clear. Fluffy white head sticks around a while. Aroma is a bouquet of grapefruit, orange, pinapple. Bitterness really hits with the first sip, but its not overpowering. Just right. This is the IPA benchmark. Smooth malt perfectly balanced with pungent american hops. Oh, and I think mystery hop X is Simcoe.

Nice amber color. Aroma is full of citrus. Good citrus flavor that lingers nicely on the palate. I am a mark of this beer

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2006
Orangey amber colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is caramel, fruity and hoppy. Bready, toasty malts with a nice lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied, fresh and tasty.

outerupt (133) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2006
On tap or from 12oz bottle this one is always consistent. The amber pour develops a lovely soapy head and persistent lacing. The aroma is a glorious spectrum of hops ranging from pineapple-fruity to herbacious and pine-resinous. The mouthfeel is oily with the tingle of hop bitterness in the midpalate and at the finish balanced well with a warming syrupy malt character. One of the top American IPAs.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2006
12 oz bottle. Golden yellow body with large white head. Aroma of grapefruit with a touch of grain. Tastes of grapefruit and hops, but there wasnt quite as much flavor as Id like. Palate is smooth. A nice, but not exceptional, IPA.

On Tap @DFH Ale House, MD

Poured golden yellow, frothy white head, with nice lacing on glass. Aroma wonderful citrus, grapefruit, grassy, and slighty malty notes. Flavor very balanced mix of grapefruit, and glassy hints. Nice hop bite with a slight malty tone in the middle. Nice dry finish. Medium bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel.

TrevorFloyd (309) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 11, 2006
A solid IPA, but would you expect any less from DFH? Hoppy and citrus (mainly grapefruit), but balanced with some malt. I think the 90 is better, and the 120 is close to perfection, but if you just want a regular IPA you can hardly do better.

Bailz316 (256) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Pours a light orange with small white head. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus. Very lively and hoppy. Some malts. Grassy. Bitter, dry finish. Not as good as the 90 minute but a damn good beer. Dogfish delivers again

Celt44 (4) - Endicott, New York, USA - FEB 10, 2006 does not count
Overall and excellent IPA. Aroma is beautiful with a floral/smokey mix. Flavor is unique and delicious. Hops are present and finish is smooth and smokey. Hints of Oak abound. One of my top 3 IPAs of all time.

I may have liked this one even better than the Dogfish 90 Minute Imperial IPA although the ratings say otherwise...go figure, who said this was a perfect science. Anyway, poured yellow/clear slight cloud. Stamp says bottled 2 months ago, and tasted fresh...found at local Whole Foods Market.
