Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 11-19-2001

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.

The best way to put this is malty. Very very malty malt that keeps the hop hop hoppy crazy ways under control.

One of the very first IPA's that got me into craft brewing. DFH nailed it.

Bottle. Full disclosure: I am not an IPA fan, generally sticking with stouts, porters and some dark lagers. But there was a lone bottle in my local grocery store and I thought, why not. So, with that in mind... I started this around 56F. It poured an OMG beautiful golden amber, perhaps the prettiest beer I've seen. Nice whitish head that lasted long enough to appreciate. Smell was mostly citrus hops. Maybe some grapefruit, but definitely citrus. Aroma was the weakest link. Taste followed, but slightly out performed the aroma. Feel was medium body and quite creamy. In fact, there's many a stout that could take a lesson. I found myself wanting to really like this beer, but ultimately it is not my thing. My rating is probably unfair because I'm not into IPAs, but if you are, or want to try one, I heartily recommend this beer!

On tap at DFH Fairfax VA. Coppery with buff head that leaves nice lacing. Pineapple and resin up front with leathery bitterness in the finish. Outstanding!

Pours a darker gold with an orange tinge. Medium head, with a ring of persistent head. Some lacing down the sides of the glass. Major note is pine, some apricot. Extremely well-balanced considering the (presumably) high IBU.

Outstanding. Would be interested to compare with Yeast Wrangler by Holy City, my other favorite Imp. IPA/DIPA.

A: bright tan colored head that leaves a pretty meniscus of head around the top of the beer. Lots of lacing. The beer is a bright amber almost orange hue, very clear

S: smells like fresh beer with considerable hops. Some pine notes, with prominent sweet and malty tones

T: hoppy and earthy but can still appreciate the malt

M: this is where this beer really shines. If you were to look at it and how clear it was, you'd never guess it had this creamy, full-bodied mouthfeel. It's really exquisite

O: I can see now why it's rated so highly. It's a simple IPA in that it doesn't have tons of citrus and spice and floral and pine etc, but it has a beautiful look with an awesome mouthfeel and a very traditional IPA taste

I'm not a fan of IPAs and this one is no different. Smells and tastes like a pine tree to me.
