Once again big thanks to my collegue for bringing the booze. Clear dark golden coloured, thin lacing. Strong hoppy aroma, flowery, with some fruit perhaps. Bitter flavour, full mouthed. Very well balanced. Good beer, i wish we would have more examples of this style around here in the Netherlands.

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 Pours a dark golden color, with a large head. Tastes of pine, lemon and strong acidic flavors. Very nice aroma.. and the best balance of malt and hops out of the DFH IPA line. An outstanding IPA.

Transparent yellow-gold in color. Creamy, tall white head with great lacing. Aroma is sweet lemon grass, honeycakes and pine. Hits the palate as smooth and creamy. IBUs seem to be almost an afterthought, as theyre not as powerful as I was expecting. Muted carbonation. Grassy, pine and lemons compose the majority of the flavor. This is one smooth IPA, and a solid rendition of the style.

Thanks to Axilla for the bottle. Pours a pale golden color. Medium white head with little to no linger. Floral and spicy hop aromatics. Floral nose, malt flavors quickly seep in to combine with a well rounded bitterness. Doesnt get as syrupy as the 90 minute, which I find preferable. Very spicy hop character is then exuded, which continues through the finish and helps accentuate a lingering bitter mouthcoat. The body is medium light, appropriate for the style. The mouthfeel has enough astringency to prevent any stickiness from being percieved except at temperatures bordering on too high. Excellent session style IPA.

Sorry, I"m drinking it out of a bottle but it is still really awesome. Strong fruity bouqet. Hops dominate the palate. Havent had a good IPA in a while. Outstanding. Cant wait to try the 90 minute

The 90 Minute IPA is much better, but this is a very tasty and easy to drink IPA.

The 90 minute is better, but this a good quality beer. Nice hop flavor, balances the malt nicely.

As always, Dogfish Head brewery delivers the goods. The first thing you notice is the delicious extra hoppy floral aroma as it wafts from the glass to your nose. Ahhh, like heaven. The taste is exceptionally smooth the extra hoppy goodness excites the taste buds. Excellent! Try it, if you like this one, go for the 90 minute IPA.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2005 I dont really know what all the hype is over this stuff. The finish is nothing I care for at all. It had a nice pour and was pleasant in the glass, but thats as close as I care to be to it again. Id like to try the 90 minute just to see if theres more substance to it, other than just bite.

Foam, foam, foam everywhere. The head was just insane. I poured half the bottle and the head in the glass was crazy. I swirled the bottle and foam actually overflowed the lip. I am frankly disappointed with this beer. The aftertaste was almost medicine like. The murkiness in the glass was nice looking, but the head was a bit putting off.
