It had a very overbearing citrus flavor to it. I don't recommend it as a beer to drink while just hanging out watching games. However I feel it would be a good beer to compliment a fish dinner.
I love the Dogfish Head beers, it may be one of my favorite craft breweries simply because of the crazy variety of their beers. Magic Hat is the same way, but I think Dogfish is better.
They make three distinct IPA's: 60 Minute, 90 Minute and 120 Minute. Those numbers refer to the ABV, 60 Minute is 6%, 90 is 9% and 120 is 12%. It is well established that the 90 Minute is the most superior of the three and is one of the top craft IPA's available in the US. I highly recommend it, although it is much harder to come by than it's 60 Minute cousin.
I wouldn't really recommend any IPA as a beer to just sit around a drink; they're relatively strong, very hoppy, somewhat bitter and have strong citrusy flavors. They're always perfect complements to a good meal though.
