Well really all I can say is after having the 60 minute right before this, it was exactly like it but with more alcohol (obviously), but really it tasted the same but with more of a kick. kungus (15) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Among the best DIPA’s I’ve had. Slightly creamy compared to many other DIPA’s. Can sense the alcohol, but it doesn’t seem as potent as it really is. The malt and hops blend nicely while the hops linger very well without being overly acidic. Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Bottle Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a good off white fizzy head, excellent lacing on the glass and mostly lasting. Aroma is hoppy with a touch grain cereal. Some dough, perfumes, plum, and alcohol. At first taste this was acidic, then it warmed a bit, it became sweet with a touch of bitterness. Light to medium body with a creamy texture and somewhat lively. This is a great beer with a higher abv, it will knock you for a loop but its a great trip.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2008 This remains one of the best beers I have ever had and certainly the best IIPA slightly ahead of Ruination. After being awed by the 60-min. I expected this to be hop INSANITY, but was surprised at the balance. If I had any willpower at all with this stuff I’d love to try it aged. But that ain’t gonna happen! A truly beautious brew. fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Pours clear honey amber with light carbonation and thin off-white head that laces the ring. Aroma is floral, light pine, grapefruit. Flavor is well balanced with dry hops, light orange/citrus and barley. Beautiful mix. Throw in a soft, smooth, slightly sticky palate. Great IPA.

It poured out a brilliant golden brown. It looked like I had poured alfalfa honey. It had a bold taste, long and lasting. Hints of apricot and not a lot of carbonation.. It was fantastic beer. madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 16, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2008 Pours cloudy orange with a thin white, bubbly head. Very good looking brew. Lots of lacing. Very citrus hop aroma, but definitely some malt backing it up. Hops are a little more muted then I would have thought. A little spiciness in there. This is pretty well balanced. Acidic and sticky. Some bitterness in the finish. A well crafted beer. Rerate 2/7/08 Pour is clear amber/copper with a medium off white head. Lively carbonation, lots of bubbles rising. Aroma seems more crisp this time, citrus and pine resin with just a touch of malt. Taste is tame but good, very well balanced, not harsh at all. Good hop presence with citrus and pine and same rasin type fruit in the finish. Better than I remember. A little bit of alcohol burn. grat (432) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 15, 2005
One of the more interesting DIPAs out there for sure. Excellently sweet. Hops on this one play a role similiar to those in 120 minute only without being pinned down and suffocated out by the screeeching malts. Copper coolness. Piney nose, resinous but not a punch in the face. Artful and full of skill. Excellent beer GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2006 Pours with a thick rocky white head on a cloudy deep orange body. Lots of lacing. Strong aroma of citric hops. Intensely bitter taste with a very pleasant aftertaste. Thick alcoholic body. mjurney (64) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2005
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!!
