12 oz. bottle, with bottled on date 05/21/2013 printed on the side. It's been way too long since I've last had this beer, so I decided to revisit a six pack.
Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.
A - Pours just over a finger of creamy sudsy off-white foam for a head. Body color is a beautiful bright orange. Thin wispy lacing.
S - Smell is of fresh pine hop zest, citric grapefruit / orange juices, buttery biscuit malt backbone, slight alcohol fumes, and some earthiness.
T - Delicious fruity bitter dry-hopped goodness. Pine, grapefruit, & oranges, paired with a crisp malty backbone. A hint of herbal notes & some spice in there. Finish comprises minerals and earth.
M - Feel is smooth and creamy with some piney / grapefruit hop bitterness lingering on the palate. Dry in the finish. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation.
Overall, a delicious, creamy, sessionable, flavor-packed beverage. A true classic example of the American IPA done right. It's no wonder that this is Dogfish Head's flagship beer. An outstanding beer that I tend to overlook far too often.

Appearance: Clarity was brilliant, color was a pale gold. The head was substantial, creamy, and true white in color. Carbonation was evident, but not on excess, as far as the eye could see.
Smell: I found the bouquet to be surprisingly dull. Not only that, but there was a sulfuric aroma that, while hardly overpowering, could not be ignored. Hops were present, but were not of the resiny, in-your-face American quality I was expecting (there was a bit of citrus, however). I was also surprised by the level of maltiness in comparison to the other qualities. A toasty malt seemed to be at nearly the same level as the hops each time I sniffed.
Taste: Bitterness was less prominent than that of other IPAs, and in terms of the finish, vanished from the palette quite quickly. There was a round, toasty maltiness that, while tasty, seemed out of place for the style. A bit of citrus tang made for a nice touch.
Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel, with moderate carbonation. No more, no less.
Overall: So sessionable, it was almost disappointing. This beer reminded me more of an amber ale than an IPA. The Bronx Pale Ale I had before it was considerably more hoppy, in terms of both smell and taste. Still a fine beer, but certainly not what I was looking for.

On tap at Romas in Pottsville PA. First pint was the shortest measure I've ever had. Complained about it, and next one was on the house. Fair enough. So I'll review #2
Pint delivered to the table. Small slightly fluffy head, which didn't retain much. Lacing was good though. Body a clear pale amber color.
Not an awful lot on the nose hops, citrus, and a whif of something I wasn't able to identify.
Taste is just outstanding though. Smooth, hops come through nicely with a bit of a bite, but doesn't hang around forever on the tongue. Extremely drinkable and sessionable at 6.0.
Mouth is medium, very easy on the tongue.
Overall, this is a beer I've had many times, and finally got around to reviiewing. I must admit, I appreciate it much more now than I did in earlier years. I love DFH 90, and always viewed 60 as a poorer relation. Now I realize they both have their place, and merits.
