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.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a citrus aroma along with a whiff of alcohol.
Appearance- Pours a clear amber color with almost zero head.
Taste- Hops and malt with an alcohol bite.
Palate- A heavy bodied brew with mild carbonation. This beer has a very dry finish.
Overall- A really good beer but I didn't enjoy it enough to give it world class ratings.

Nice copper look to it, the ABV is very evident but not excessive as the very present hops give it a nice balanced flavor. It actually has a smooth feel to it, which is a pleasant surprise. Overall in terms of flavor I am more of a fan of the 60 minute IPA but this is still a masterpiece of a beer from an elite microbrewery. I would love to get my hands on the 120 minute IPA, which is the granddaddy of them all in terms of ABV

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip. A hazy orange-amber ale topped with an off-white one-finger head that has decent retention. Very good lacing, as to be expected from a heavily-hopped ale.

Aroma is sweet, citrus fruits, vanilla, garnished with a floral hop overtone. Not as pungent as many IPAs, though.

Flavors are rich fruits, banana, caramel malts, light, pastry-like breads up front. Grapefruit, lemon zest, and pine-y hop notes come in strong after, but the strength of the malt backbone keeps the 90 IBU bitterness from devastating the taste buds. Finish is fairly long and sweet/sour, accompanied by a noticeable alcohol warmth.

Mouthfeel is smooth and and not overly heavy. The body of this rather malt-heavy beer is offset by a fairly strong carbonation.

A well-known, well respected Imperial IPA who's reputation is well-deserved. The muscular malt character here does much to offset the strong hops. Many die-hard hop-heads may not appreciate this, as the result lacks the overwhelming blast of hop-bitterness that many other IPAs flaunt. Those who like a heavier beer and enjoy the malt aspect as well as the hops will find much to love here.
