American Double / Imperial IPA |  9.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Esquire Magazine calls our 90 Minute IPA "perhaps the best IPA in America." An imperial IPA best savored from a snifter, 90 Minute has a great malt backbone that stands up to the extreme hopping rate.

90 Minute IPA was the first beer we continuously hopped, allowing for a pungent -- but not crushing -- hop flavor.

Best IPA I have had to date! Much better than the 60 minute in my opinion.

Have drank a few Dogfish Head 60 minute IPAs and decided to purchase a 4 pack of the 90 minute IPA. Wow, is all I can say. What a great tasting beer. Very difficult to detect any alcohol in this beer. A very hoppy beer, but very refreshing.

Not a fan of malty IPA's and this is a malt bomb with minimal aroma and hop flavor

Just a great brew. There is nothing bad to say about this beer. Perfect balance of Grapefruit and citrus taste. Wonderful aromas of sweet pine. If u are not much into IPAs wait till u r ready for this masterpiece. Give your palate time to adjust to the buttery greatness. You will never regret buying it. Salud! Cheers! Enjoy......

Dogfish IPA is my go-to and I've tried all 60, 90, and 120 min IPAs. In short, I can't get enough of them.
90 min IPA has a full body with rather aggressive hoppy tone/taste.
I think it's a bit strong for those who are not familiar with IPAs. So, for instance, my friend who only drinks mainstream adjunct lagers tried this beer for the first time and he said it was "too bitter and too awfully strong". However, I think the opposite.
Despite the apparent bitterness, this beer is NOT overwhelming; it's actually very well-balanced, pleasant, and smooth. Its structure is admirably delicate. It has a great drink-ability.
When you first crack it open, the amazing hoppy scent will grab your attention. And at your first sip, you will notice the malty backbone and piney undertone. Then, at your second sip, you will be surprised at how refreshing it is despite the high hop content. It ends a bit dry and sweet and leaves you with a great aftertaste.

My advice: I highly recommend this beer if you are already into IPAs. If you are trying IPAs for the first time, go with something more mellow and build up your palate before trying this one so that you can fully enjoy the experience.
