Wow!! This 90 Minute Imperial IPA is great!! Pours out amber/golden color with a nice head. Nice fresh cirtus aroma. Very hoppy flavor; Cirtus, herbable, slighty spicy. Nice rich finish. The best IPA I ever had!!

Much like the 60 minute but a little more alcohol flavor and less attention to the balanced flavors. Not as much citrus in this one.

Appearance reminds me of mahogany thats been brushed with tung oil, golden red. Lasting thin head looks rich and creamy. Lots of bubbles. Aroma is very fresh. I detect grapefruit and fresh hops. Very similar in aroma to the 60 min IPA.. Palate is full bodied and smooth. The flavor is rich. Heavy malt and hops. Slight astringency with a reasonably dry finish. Bitterness is certainly present, but resovles before the next sip. Caramel and citrus come through. This is a wonderful IPA and and excellent beer in general. Maybe one of the finest Ive tasted as of 12-10-05. I had high expectations of this beer having already enjoyed the 60 minute IPA and this certainly dosent disappoint. Excellent. The high alcohol content goes concealed. Man Ive had less than half a pint and Ive already been smacked. I could go on and on. I love this beer!

This is a very good IPA. It has an insane amount of hops, but theres enough barely to prevent it from being overpowering. The weakest attribute is the appearance (the head was a disappointment), but who drinks a fine IPA because it looks good?

Considering all the hops in this one, it is balanced extremely well. It actually comes off quite malty, with a sweet, biscuity beginning. This, of course transitions into a nice citrusy, piney hop bitterness. A nice beer, but actually isnt very unique. The hops are so subdued by the malt that it comes off like a pretty standard IIPA. I actually prefer the 60 minute, which I find to have jucier, brighter hops. Still, a very good beer.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Bottle. Pours a crystalline red-gold with fluffy off-white head. The aroma is, well, grapefruit hops, with some alcohol and a note of sweetness. The flavor is assertive and well balanced: a foundation of rich barley holds up the crazy hoppiness, with the alcohol prancing around. Impressive.

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST BEERS EVER MADE,MANY OF MY FRIENDS AND I HAVE SAMPLED THIS TASTY BEER AMONG MANY OTHER IPAS. THERE IS NO OTHER BEER AS SMOOTH AS THIS WITH THE AMOUNT OF HOP OFFERED, I RECOMMEND THAT EVERYONE TRY THIS LUCIOUS BEER AT LEAST ONCE IN THERE LIFE. FURTHER MORE DOGFISH HEAD IS BY FAR THE BEST BREWING COMPANY TO COME. SO DRINK DOGFISH AND ENJOY AND MAKE SURE YOU TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW DOGFISH HEAD IS NUMBER ONE.

My roomate offered me one of these and just couldnt turn it down. Dogfish head is picking up where american knowhow and inginuity left off, and NASA pissed down the toilet. This percepts an arrange of hops shoved into a bottle somehow capping a fresh toasty feel. I lovered it:)

Ive been trying to get this beer for a few weeks and was then waiting for a good occasion to try it. Last day of classes seemed appropriate. Great hops and other notes in the aroma. Thin white head on a perfect tawny body. Little bubbles rising like a champagne. Smooth taste for the 9% ABV. Crisp and smooth hops in the taste. Head and shoulders about the 60 minute IPA. Certainly worth the wait and looking forward to more.
