A truly hoppy concoction: strong, floral, citrusy hops, and a ton of bitterness. Some sweet taste once you get past the hops, even a hint of something like strawberries, but it's hard to find under all those hops.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2007 Big and impressive! The visual presentation was a light amber topped by a soft, whispy white head. The aroma was a blended concoction of sour grapefruit and big floral, grassy hop notes. I found the mouthfeel to be rather smooth, full, and round. The hops dominated the flavor profile, in addition to malt sweetness and strong alcohol tastes. 90 Minute IPA finished with a strong, sustained bitter and some alcohol warmth with a hint of mint. It was worth a try but I can’t see myself shelling out for it again.

Pale Ale color, foamy. Very nice Pale Ale nose. Extremely dry hoppy/bitter taste, too dry, really. I guess I'm learning about the contribution of American hops as an element towards imbalance in a quest for galumptuous taste. It's similar to drinking an overoaked wine lacking basic fruit. Too bad, though, it sure beats Coors light!

Amber, brilliant colour; florals, herbs, caramelly nose; body is full of woody bitterness; big flavour with citrus, cascade. The bitterness really comes on strong late in this beer, detracting from the overall balance and coating the mouth. I wanted to see a more expressive nose and less bitterness in the finish.

Cloudy, light golden color. Floral, supermarket aroma. Huge hops, woody. I couldn't decide if I liked this or not. Might be good with something really spicy, but really over hopped, but I think that is what they are aiming for.

Massive, massive hops in this one. Just MASSIVE. Definitely some maltiness to back it up, but it's so hoppy the bitters dry your mouth right after swallowing. Forms a thick, luscious head. Very tasty, though (I never thought I'd say this) it may be too hoppy. Still, a hophead's dream brew in many ways.
