Okay, so not everything about Colonialism was good, but at least it gave us India Pale Ale. I have recently tried a really good one: Dogfish Head 90 Minute Imperial IPA. It has a really nice deep reddish color, and has a pleasant citrusy smell. Since it's an IPA it's extremely hoppy, but there is enough of a malty taste to balance it out. It has a pretty high alcohol content (9%) and as it got warmer in the glass, I thought the alcohol taste came through more and almost dominated the malt flavor in the aftertaste, but the initial hoppy bite is terrific.
It's a really good beer. It's a little on the pricey side for me ($11/4-pack), but it was worth it.
I give it 4 staggers out of 5.
