This beer poors a large frothy head on a clear orange body. Aroma is significant and has intense hopy aroma of pine. Flavor is unbalanced in my opinion and does not exhibit the malty backbone of good IPAs like stone. INspite of this flaw it is refreshing and nice. Slighlty sweet initially with a significantly bitter finish. Ilook forward to trying the 90 and 120.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2010 RE-RATE. poured from bottle. Aroma is hops (of course) and ocean. Clear honey amber, thin white head. Flavor of hops and pineapple. Creamy texture. Outstanding drinkability. Another excellent DH creation.

May tasing notes; Bottles marked "5". Im guessing fresh batch. Very good with a light fluffy head, great mouth feel and noticable but not obnoxious (nor flowery, either) hops. However, an odd flavor to the malt what do these guys brew with, anyway? And why call it "chunky style"?

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2004 Mondial de la Biere 2004. Orange amber colour with a thin frothy off-white head. Caramel, toffee, and fruity aroma. Dark bread, toasty malts, and a lingering fruity bitter finish. Similar to Hop Devil, but the bitter finish starts slower and lingers longer. Medium bodied and juicy.

candy-like bitterness in the aroma. citrusy and tangy also. big head that leaves a lot of lace. intense bitterness at first but then balances out with a little bit of mild malt. dry finish. i can really taste those Mystery Hops! gets a little fruity as it warms, overall a good IPA.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2004 Grassy, herbal, orange and grapefruit hops in the nose. Its a clean, fresh aroma. Deep caramel colour with nice fairly lasting white head that recedes to thick cover with sudsy lacing. Strong grapefruit hop flavour with biscuity orange and equally strong balancing malt sweetness. Creeping bitterness that becomes intensely bitter, but sneaks up on you. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel and medium-full body. Very enjoyable IPA. Bottle (sampled at Mondial 2004). Resampled at the Vermont Brewers Festival on tap with the randallizer. Enjoyed equally on tap and in the bottle. On tap, of course, the hop aroma is far more pronounced.

Radek Kliber (7239) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 8, 2004
This is the aroma that I would look for in great IPA. Not overly hopped, sweet malt that is balancing the act. 60 minute IPA is a handsome amber drink with bright white head. Nicely balanced, medium bodied, malt base is able to support that entire hop content .Some light green apple. Very, very good.

rajendra82 (1065) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2004
Pale golden orange color, cloudy unfiltered body, creamy durable head, in other words the picture of a quality IPA stamped all over the pint glass. The aroma is bit fainter than most other IPA style beers, with the hops exhibiting a mellow soft character rather than an up front pine resin like aggressiveness. The taste is very bitter, bone dry, tart, and lemony, and backed by the pale and caramel malts displaying a faint butterscotch flavor. Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium, with a creamy effervescence. This is quite easy to drink.

dogfish, dogfish... original tasting or terribly overated?? I must say, I actually liked this beer on tap. medium bodied. not too hopsy. sweet, roasted flavor. hint of orange, black cherry. very good beer, indeed.

hopdog (11888) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Medium Orange/Amber in color with an averaged sized head. Hoppy, piney and citrus aromas. Piney tastes with nice hoppy bitterness. Not as good as the 90 Minute IPA but not a bad beer.
