This is one 4 pack I always replace. Very easy on the nose and palate, yet has a nice alcohol kick. I am a newbie, but this brew is me favorite yet...Nice blend of flavors. I recommend this for every fridge!

Dogfish Head 90 Minute Imperial IPA 12 oz bottle Bottled 05/26/06, gratified 09/06 Medium pour in a snifter Poured a clear copper with a tiny, barely off-white head. Smelt of light grassiness, sweet clover honey, and cinnamon banana. Taste was upfront heavily sweet with a light bitter crisp hoppy bite followed by a peak in bitter hops and a slow gradual descent in sweetness, finishing in a spicy flowery lingering hop finish. Mouthfeel was medium to full bodied, syrupy and velvety, soft nuanced carbonation with very light cozy alcoholic warmth and light to moderate astringincy. Overall, an Imperial IPA that is beatiifully balanced for taste and drinkability, but the sweet malt backbone hides the hop showcase a bit.

NJJereme (386) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 Pours a nice amber color with a light head. Deep hoppy flavor complimented by caramel undertones, particularly if sitting for a few minutes. Very enjoyable beer. Easy on the palate and goes down smoothly. Finishes perfectly. Definitely worth trying!

DaMenace123 (253) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2006
Pours a hazy light golden color with a small white head that dissipated quickly with moderate lacing. Aroma was of apricot, fruit, hops, and some alcohol. The flavor was of hops, but it was well balanced with malt, with a nice bitterness. The alcohol became more pronounced as the beer got warmer. Overall very enjoyable brew.

had it before a few times, first time actually pouring and rating critically... a bit too clear for my tastes, i like my dIPAs unfiltered.. smells like i expect all IIPas to, except, amazingly, the obvious hops and obvious malts are stunningly well-balanced. giving it a 9 since i have had a couple other beers i could spend an hour smelling. in flavor, the malts balancing but not strong. whereas the tendency is to overmalt to hide the alcohol, this has a malt backbone but doesnt have a large sweetness accompanying it. great stuff. good hop finish. i think i like this more than yulesmith, i2pa, and most ive had. its actually a reminder that you can make a great dIPA without the tremendous hops/malts characteristic of the style.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2006 A phenomenal brew. Beautiful light golden color with a white head and great lacing. By far the best IPA I have ever tried. Extremely bitter flavor is wonderfully complimented by the maltiness of the barley. Has a great sweet fruity hop flavor. I really cant say enough about the quality of this brew.
