Appearance - Very transparent and effervescent. A bright orange with golds and yellows. Little bubbles float to the surface, however, not many. This IPA does not seem to be very carbonated. Not much head retention. Any bubbles remaining tend to cling to the edges of the glass.
Smell - Simple, yet a fairly rich aroma. Lots of fresh floral notes, along with mild citrus fruits and toffee.
Taste - Nice acidic bite to it due to the citrus flavors. Plenty of Cascade hops or perhaps Amarillo hops give this a refreshing dryness. These hop varietals really cut through during the initial taste. Grapefruit, lemon, lots of earthy notes like flowers and grass, vanilla, light malts and gentle brown sugars. A mild hint of coffee, too. Quite dry.
Mouthfeel - This IPA really coats the roof of the mouth, leaving your palate buzzing all over the tongue and back of the throat. It does leave a light coating after swallowing. More carbonation then I would have guess, judging by the initial appearance. Fairly balanced and a nice use of sugars.
Overall - This Dogfish Head classic is definitely more on the bitter side compared to that of its predecessor, the 90 Minute. It is considerably less malty and a little bit more on the dry side. Having tasted both the Squall and the 90 numerous times, this bottle definitely offers stark differences that allow it to go a long way in making this stand out to a hardcore Hop-Head. For more bite and less malt, I would highly recommend the 60 Minute over the 90 Minute IPA. Dogfish does it again!
