Very, very good, the 90 minute IPA is much better to me....but this is about as good as any and not as expensive as the 90 minute. Overall, a great value.

Best IPA for the buck. Yes, I too prefer the 90 minute. But at nine bucks a four-pack on my wallet, I like the 60 minute a whole lot more. But then again, Ive never spent more than $30 for a bottle of wine and I think its a chic and savvy exhibition to be seen with a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon at a hoity toity art show.

Nice amber color with a big white head on it. Starts off smooth, and has a nice strong hoppy after-taste. Definitely one of the best IPAs ive found out there

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2005 I think Im spoiled by the 90 but this one is still nice. Would purchase regularily for an everyday IPA and leave the 90 for special occassions.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2005
This is a very well balance hoppy IPA which has a smooth finish. After having this in a sampler pack, I went out for a case of this. It has a bit of a rusty taste in regards to its bitterness but that is what I expect in an IPA. I only wish the 90 minute and 120 minute IPAs from Dogfish sold for the same price this one does!

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Dark amber, unfiltered with a pretty flat head and some sediment. Pronounced hoppiness in the nose, in fact the hops saturates this beer - theyre simply all over and returns in the palate. One of the most hardcore IPAs Ive had.

This IPA pours out Tan-orange with small white head. The aroma is mild and slighly hoppy. The flavor is smooth with a medium body and can be best described as grapefruit or critus. Nice IPA try one.

Bov (12273) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 13, 2005
hazy orange colour, big foamy head, very well-hopped (what a surprise ...), strong aroma of apricot, grapefruit and cream, medium to full-bodied, slightly oily, the mouthfeel is quickly overwhelmed by a powerful bitterness which persists in a very long fruity and flowery finish - about just the right amount of bitterness for my taste - thanks to fiulijn for this beer !

Brew4Dug (139) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Definitely a session IPA, as its malt-hop ratio is well-balanced when compared to the popular hopped up versions available from other US craft-microbrews of the style. The DFH brewery continues to intrigue me with some of the offerings made available for purchase. I prefer the 90-minute, but I am sure that 90%+ would concur with that statement. As far as session IPAs are concerned, I put Avery & Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale at the top of my personal list of favorites.

Parallel with 90 Minutes and Sixty-One

Hazy golden color with small head. The aroma is lightly malty; the mouthfeel is smooth, it has some pale malt flavor, correct bitterness, but not much hop quality.
Disappointing.

Beautiful golden color and big creamy head. Very nice hop aroma, crispy, a bit nutty, and fruity (mature apricots and raisins). Some good malt flavor, unable to balance the huge amount of hops, with a lot of caramel character. Enjoyable.
