Its good, but a little to bitter to be an IPA. Seems more like an ESB. I would drink it again.

Dark copper color with thin head. Lots of flavor, but bitterness is well balanced. I like this a lot.

A literal "bouquet" of floral hops rise from this terrific beer. Has a murky, rusty-amber body with lively carbonation and a dense, rocky, cream-colored head. Wonderful lacing held on like whipped egg whites. Heavy, perfumed, flowery aromas along with pine and citrus notes. Similar flavor that started with a moderate maltiness and a hop presence that burned my lips. Much more flavorful and aromatic at room temperature than chilled.

This is, quite simply, the best IPA which I have ever had. Unlike the 60 minute, there is not a huge head and also has a great taste. It is very drinkable and does not give that bloated feeling which so many IPAs do.

braudimusprime (75) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 8, 2005
Wow, this is definitely the strongest IPA Ive tasted. Aroma is a friendly sort of malt, but the taste kicks in quickly with strong citrus notes and a woody undertone, followed by a strong bitter finish. I dont know if Id do more than one per night, but this is a powerful and complex IPA. I want to splurge soon on the 120.

Bottle, about 9 months old. This beer is murrr-ky. Very cloudy, nice burnt orange color, with a head full of crowded tiny bubbles that last all the way down. Aroma is surprisingly malty for a beer that bills itself as a hop monster. It IS hoppy - but also maltier than Id have suspected. Id say its a little less sweet than some of the other DIPAs Ive had (think Stoudts), but it strikes me as a little on the astringent and harsh side. The alcohol is well hidden in this; probably wouldnt guess it was 9%. This is good - very good - but I think the 60 Minute is even better, especially on cask. In fact, it really makes me want to try the 90 on tap/cask, and see if its a little more balanced. I should say that this bottle, which was aged somewhat, was, in fact, more balanced and subtler than the fresh stuff I had last July.

Nice amount of hops. Full body strong foundation. Dont let the taste make you consume more than a couple. Treat like a fine wine or a great cigar. Enjoy every moment as long as you can.

Possibly the best IPA on the market. Pours a nice reddish gold with frothy head. Floral aroma with hops and alcohol both sublty notable. Taste is unique. Citrus and fruit mix nicely with light evergreen undertones and heavy hops. I might not survive if I ever find this one on tap!

Fantastic beer. Pours great. Smooth fuity taste that keeps on giving. Citrus-like aroma. Well worth my wife yelling at me for speng 10 bucks on a four pack.
