I hope that this. Brewery stays true to the product. Great job!!! If you could only pick one: Dog Fish Head 90 Minute IPA. When I take the train from Boston to Newark, the 90 minute IPA with a few food selections makes the trip enjoyable! The trip is 360 minutes. You can do the math! Great job. Stay true my friends.

The beer is a golden color with a ton of carbonation and a bubbly white head. The beer has a mix of orange and other citrus fruit aromas and a grassy smell. The citrus flavor is not that present in the taste. I get a stronger bitter taste to start followed by a roasted flavor. The pine and grass hop flavors are mild. The bitterness lingers and but it feels light, maybe due the ton of carbonation bubbles

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours copper with orange highlights, fluffy head, sticky lace. A mix of citrus/earthy hops and roasted malts that give the impressions of orange/grapefruit, pine, moss, herb, onion, and coffee on the palate. An odd collision of flavors. The heavily roasted, coffee-ish malt becomes dominant as it warms and muddles the brightness of the hops. A successful, consistent, unique IPA, but not to my liking.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a beautiful and effervescent medium, cloudy orange color with a moderate, sticky head.
Aroma: Very grassy and skunky. A little citrus and pine, but mostly grassy. Some roastedness. Has the skunky quality of a Heineken or Czech Pilsner. Must be lightstruck. A lot of pepper and a bit of spiciness.
Flavor: Sharp bitterness upfront. Hop flavors of grass and roasted barley. Some pine and citrus. Its a light grass flavor with a roasted barley and coffee malt flavor. Not too earthy nor bitter. Bitterness is attenuated. A little rubbery yeast.
Feel: Light enough and crisp. Not oily or resiny. Finishes dry and bitter.

Overall: A strongly hopped, grassy, piney and roasted IPA. Slightly peppery without any appreciable malts. Still, getting a rubbery and skunky quality meaning the beer is not fresh. Grassy and piney coffee would describe this IPA with an attenuated bitterness and almost no, but darker roasted coffee malt presence. Roasted grass for sure. It characterizes grass and pine without the west-coast bitterness.

A delicious and exceptional drink. Everything a hophead would want in their beer and more, having the simplicity of your average IPA yet all of the qualities and complexities seem to be fine-tuned just enough to stand out of the bunch.

Still containing the expected bitterness of an IPA with a nice prominent hoppy overtone, light citric and floral feel followed a malty finish. Alcohol is very well-hidden, practically non-existent. Smooth and crisp.

Probably the tastiest, most well-balanced and pleasant hop-based beer I've encountered yet. A perfect summer drink, certainly check it out.

Bottled. Dry finish. Not as bright as I was expecting. This is certainly a quality IPA, but not one on my favorites. Glad to have tried those one though!

Like your beer filtered through a rubber hose that has been laying out in the hot sun? This beer is for you! Also enjoyed by many "IPA of the day" zombies out there.

Poured from a 19.2 oz can into the test glass
A - Wonderful clarity, a honey colored hue, steady carbonation fed a thick white cap
S - Earthy hops, biscuity malts, some warm rising dough and a hint of citrus
T - Follows the nose quite well, a defined track all flavors stay on, include some honey aspects
M - Medium in body. slightly bitter start, then a sweetness rolls in. finish is long and earthy
O - A wonderful offering I should have tried a long time ago.

Poured into a Spieglau IPA glass from a 19oz can. I finally decided to try it after constant recommendations from friends. I was a little disappointed in spite of the fact that I recently tried the Voodoo Ranger Imperial IPA from New Belgium, and I was really blown away by it so I had higher expectations for this one. I can see why a lot of people like it, but it's not my favorite. Smells of strong pine and hops, and I wanna say a touch of honey and honeydew zest with light citrus (primarily orange) notes. Smells great. Tastes very hoppy, with an orange taste on the back of my tongue. Long, lingering bitter hop aftertaste. Refreshing on a warm Texas day. Not a bad beer, but I think it's a little overrated. Proabably wouldn't buy again, but would drink again if offered.

Poured into a Spieglau glass. No head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is light hops. Taste is rather excellent compared to the nose. It's still quite light but the taste is great. So easy drinking you could turn these into session beers they're so tasty. Overall another fine example of the abilities of Dogfish Head and creating a true craft beer. From a 12 ounce bottle dated 07/25/18 and it still tastes great!

19.2 oz can...canned on Feb 19/19. A month old.

Pours gold w an inch of head that dissipates to a skim. Excellent carbonation.
Great hop taste, slightly bitter. A bit lower in abv than typical WC IPAs and the light, clean taste reflects that.
(90 Minute has a significantly bigger taste and feel)
Decent glass lacing.
Price for a 6pk on the west coast is in the 14-16 range, which is a bit high....but the shipping is a consideration here.
Very drinkable, sessionable IPA. Haven't had this one in five years.....still an excellent beer.

Look: Clear amber color with an attractive, creamy-white head. Small bubbles in the head, excellent lacing.
Smell: Pine and citrus. A bit of herbal spiciness.
Taste: Spicy herbal quality. Fruity, bubblegum sweetness. A little bit of that spicy herbal bitterness at the end, but this is not a particularly bitter IPA.
Feel: Medium-bodied. Small bubbles give a creamy texture.
Overall: A well-done IPA that's milder then a lot of others. Very drinkable and accessible. Everything is nice and balanced in this beer.

Just a very well made, consistent IPA, that I find a bit more bitter and lighter than the 90 or 120. Solid IPA, but I would probably reach for another, new IPA in the quest for a more interesting beer.

Pours a clear amber/honey, fair head retention. Clingy lacking. Hops used in moderation, mouthfeel is smooth. Nice lingering aftertaste. A fine ale to mention to friends to check out,

I was surprised that I had not reviewed this beer before.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Clear golden yellow color with nice head and lacing. Citrus smell and taste. Slightly piney. Good, standard IPA.

Another beer that I've had many, many times in the past but hadn't bothered to review here until now.

Rich golden color, fairly good clarity with a very slight haze. Pours a a rocky white head, creamy and lingering.

A rich and complex hop aroma. Elements of typical citrus and pine, but nothing overpowers. A bit malty sweet as well

Flavor starts slightly sweet with a citrus hop flavor, and hop flavor dominates throughout. Has a gradual transition towards a bitter finish - not a sharp break toward bitter. But the drying bitter finish comes through strongly in the end.

Medium body and carbonation. Not astringent despite the hop bitterness

This beer has never seemed as special to me in bottled form (as this sample was). Aspects of the hop flavor come through better in the draft version, which I definitely prefer.

Always enjoyed this IPA on tap or for a hop fix, back in the day. Surprised I'd never reviewed it so, after Dry January and now craving some hops -- here goes.

Poured into my Libbey Imperial Pint. Bottled-on date of 12/11/18 -- so not terribly old.

L -- Clear, deep gold with a white head that pours very dense and holds up well, leaving nice lacing as it slowly settles.

S -- Pine resins up front. Vague biscuit malts fighting to be recognized.

T -- Same pine resins up front in the flavor, if not as harsh as in the nose. Lightly sweet biscuit malts balancing out the hops nicely. Bitter resins rounding out the finish and aftertaste. Light citrus notes at the very finish of the drink.

F -- Mouthfeel is soft to crisp with a light-medium body.

O -- While I wish there was more malt character in the nose, and maybe more citrus esters in the flavor, that's just my preferences in an IPA. There's no mistaking what's in your glass with this beer, and it's very well made.

Quite malty, sweet. Orange, lemon zest. Taste is orange, lemon zest. Malty and mildly sweet. It is tasty. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. A bit crisp. Hoppy, but not super bitter. Semi dry. Drinkable. Overall, it is very good. Sort of a session IPA.

It's not the best IPA. It is very hoppy. Maybe I just don't like the hoppy being that bitter. But even other IPAs that are more bitter don't leave this stale aftertaste. It's not all horrible... But maybe the name hints at the fact that it is made quickly and with low grade . It says it has over 60 hop additions over a 60 minute boil... maybe that's why it is so hoppy. But Im just not a big fan. I think it could be better. Maybe the beer im drinking right now has just been sitting on the shelf too long. who knows. I'd buy again if i had a choice between miller or keystone, but it isn't the best IPA I've ever had. If i want a really hoppy bitter beer Id drink loose cannon.

I am not a big IPA fan. I don't like too much pine or grassy notes. This is more mild hops and citrus and a bit of malt for balance. I would drink again.

10 or 15 years ago this was one of the better ipas available but there are so many better choices in 2019. I don't feel like Dogfish Head has kept up with the competition over the years

Pours a golden color with minimal head.
Smell of pine as with most IPA's with a hint of something I can't quite pinpoint. Citrus?
Very smooth taste with only a hint of bitterness at the end. 6% abv is well hidden here, very smooth.
A bit less than medium mouth feel. Smooth aftertaste with just a hint of the usual IPA .
Rates a 9 out of 10 on the would you like to sit down with a 12 pack of this brew scale

Tastes great not too overpowering. Good balance of hops and sweets. Goes down easy. Best beer I have had in 2019. The bottle is cool with a different top and feel when you drink it.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, "CANNED ON" date 6/28/18.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear, copper color with two-fingers off-white head that slowly dissipated until a thin, unbroken layer of small bubbles remained, there is significant lacing on the glass, medium carbonation.

SMELL: initially bread and pineapple.

TASTE: initially bread and pineapple citrus, there is an earthy note on the finish.

PALATE: Medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a great looking IPA but the taste is just average, this is a good IPA but I would not seek it out again.

Truly a wonderful IPA that is well done through and through.
To be honest, I dont like the presentation of the label. Its a little cheap looking and for a long time I never bought this beer because of that. Luckily, the reputation it has in the beer community far exceeds its looks. First let's talk about the aroma. Nice bright citrus and pine aroma with a tail end of malt. The smell reminds me of grapefruit and maybe some pineapple or mango. The taste complements the aroma. Upfront you get a bright fruity start. A tad bit of sweetness but mostly a mango, pineapple and grapefruit tartness that lends perfect to the style. The middle of the sip has all the Malt backbone and bold richness and exits your pallet with a buildup of pine and citrus hop notes. Damn near perfect for a IPA. The feel is crisp, clean and refreshing. This IPA is smooth with a medium body and semi dry finish. I think this a well done beer and whold highly recommend you try it.
