UPDATED: JUN 14, 2009 Original Rating, October 31, 2004.Gold color with a medium head. Sweet aroma and taste with slight floral and hops presence. Very strange as I was expecting a bitter beer. Nicely subdued. 7/3/7/3/15

Re-rating, June 14, 2009. Clear copper color with a quickly colapsing medium head. Sweet caramel and grain aroma with a little citrus hops. Slightly grainy flavor. Moderate hoppiness. Not terribly bitter, but certainly leaning on that side of the spectrum. Yeah, subdued was about right.

Amber Coloring. Good White Head. Nice and Subdued Compared to the other minutes although 90 is very good... Nice Hops Presence and Not overwhelming...Its Not Death By Hops, its a Wonderful Balance...and Makes For a Very Enjoyable Brew.

Poured a dark orange with a small off-white head. Big piney citrus aroma. Flavor is primarily hops, with not a lot else going on. Good, but seemed a bit out of balance. Ill have to try again sometime and re-rate if necessary.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2017 Believe it or not, I only had the 90 before, so I had to try the 60. Pours out a nice copper color with a decent foamy head. There is a citrus hop aroma that carries over into the taste nice hop bit but very well balanced. Very Drinkable and enjoyable.

Copper penny body with a white, foamy head. Smells of sweet pinecones, pineapple: dry and sweet. Taste is sweet but very drying. Not to the point of being drying, but like licking the bottom of a christmas tree. Sugars and hops are great.

Definitely a very good IPA. Not as good as the 90 minute I personally feel. But this still holds its own. Hops playground

Thanks to Sancho for this awesome IPA! Great copper orange color....fantastic hop smell of grapefruit and floral. Taste wonderful too...but could be just a bit maltier. Just a great IPA from a brewery that knows how to do it.

A solid IPA ... it has a unique tasting hops and a nice texture that many pale ales lack. From start to finish it is quite good ... but yet lacking that phenomenal punch that makes it remarkable. Could use a little more malt flavoring and a more distinctive array of hops. All-in-all highly recommendable though.
