Bottle at Papsø.
Hazy amber coloured with a medium sized white head.
Fruity aroma of hops and grass with notes of citrus peel.
Fruity flavour of hops, grass and grapefruits.
Dry hoppy finish. JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle, 75 cl, at Papsø. Hazy golden with a white head. Fruity, malty aroma. Sweet caramel and citrusy hops in the mouth. Dry bitter finish. Nothing special - the lyrical waxings on the label promise way too much. The usual Dogfish Head problem... Ungstrup (37889) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2012
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of fruits, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, alcohol, fruits, and malt, leading to a bitter finish. Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Elwood. Pours golden with a slight haze and a creamy white head. Fresh citrusy hop aroma with a chocolate touch (!) Medium body, sweet malty, again quite some citrusy hops while the carbonation is a little excessive. Surprisingly subdued bitterness. 270812 Jriggz7 (117) - Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2012
At the brew pub and from cask. Maple , lemon, herbal nose. Orange, and citrus flavor with hint of maple. Very tasty

The perfect IPA and the description is spot on (when a 60 min is too little and a 90 min is too much). Citrus hop aroma makes me think of lemons. I had this in a bottle and I’m dying to try it on cask. Steasy66 (1155) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Straw with big white head. Big maple aroma. Fairly hoppy flavor somewhat sweet. Wish I had tried out fresher. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
In short: A typical IPA plagued by a soap/perfume aroma and flavorKyotoLefty (10311) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 13, 2012
How: Bottle 750ml, consumed fresh a few days after purchase
The look: Almost clear golden body topped by a medium off-white head with good retention
In long: The hoppy nose of medium intensity is floral, soapy, herbal, perfumy, a bit piney and a bit citrusy. That perfumy/soapy character is not my thing and I don’t remember getting it from the 60 and 90 Minute versions. Weird. Taste starts with toasted biscuit malts, plenty of plain semi-sweet cookies. Then the hops, nothing overwhelming here, medium intensity bitterness, very herbal, pine-tree and unfortunately quite soapy. The soapy/perfumy character plus the pine-tree brought a scented wood sensation, similar to freshly cut cedar but even more perfumy. The soapy/perfumy character didn’t overwhelmed the beer, drinking a full 750ml was no problem at all but it wasn’t a super pleasant experience either. Not something I will buy again. I need to revisit the 60 and 90 Minute because that’s not the hop signature I remember from those two classics. I liked the full body mouthfeel with plenty of soft bubbles. Not a bottle I should have bought but I just can’t help myself when I’m in a beer store, I have no self-control, but at least if it is true that we are our worst enemy then I have nothing to worry, if I ever try to hit myself a drunk fuck like me will totally miss.
Cask at The Old Toad Dogfish Head Fest 5. Deep copper with a fine, low, head. Nose of citrus (lemon and orange), gumball, orange zest, light caramel, phenols. Lovely toasty malt flavor, great balance, citrus and grass. Perfect bitterness. Great.

Bottle.. Great pale amber color, nice excellent head retention white head... This is the best example of a beer poured from a firken represented in a bottle, while the flavor wasnt necessarily excellent though it was a bit piney earthy and sweet... The mouthfeel body was exquisite...
