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.

90 IBU

Look, I know I just gave this beer a perfect score, but there is a reason. I have had MANY different beers over many years. This is the most beautiful beer I have ever placed in my mouth.

This is a hoppy IPA that doesn't taste hoppy, and I'll tell you why. Because hoppy IPAs bite the back of your tongue on the finish. This beer (which is very different than the 60 minute IPA) has a glorious finish that is round and smooth. It is just so beautiful. It almost makes me want to cry.

I have developed a quick appreciation for this and other high alcohol beers. NOT for the alcohol, but because they share a characteristic that I find beautiful They are like a fine spirit that you sip slowly because it is so elegant.

So, I've given this a perfect score because to this moment I have never had another beer quite as good. You pay through the nose for this, but its worth every penny.

Such an amazing beer. Buy a four pack and see for yourself. Tons of hops but very smooth and hard to tell its 9%ABV which can be dangerous.

For a beer that is 90 IBU and 9 % ABU its is very smooth. Citrusy, nice.
Very drinkable. Hoppy but not overwhelming. You want super hoppy try Ballantine !
Top 5 on my list

Too malty to really be a great IPA, but not a bad beer overall.

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.
