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.

I've had the 60 Minute, 120 Minute, and Burton Baton, but I have yet to try the most reviewed beer of them all here on BA. Bottled on date located on the neck of the bottle...I think I'm ready to test the waters. On to the beer:

The head is thick and lush on top this orange/copper colored beer. Very good retention and solid lacing. The nose is full of tropical flavors, somewhat resiny. I can't find any malt at this time through the nose, but my mouth might detect some...there's a trail end of carmelized bread, but otherwise this is an all hop zone. It isn't in your face, which I like about this, but the overall flavor doesn't explode in your mouth, which I miss of beers this style. The alcohol is masked in this juice. Easy does it with the hops, plenty of tropical flavor to go around and surprisings notes of maple and figs. Easy does it is the feel and drinkability of this beer.

Is it the best DIPA around? Probably not. It is one of the more sessionable ones, such as it is? I think it is.

I'm not a fan of IPAs and I've tried a lot of them,but this one is great. The balance is perfect it's not overly hoppy. Dogfish head hit a home run with this one and I think everyone should try it at least once it's well worth the money. It also doesn't leave that horrible bitter taste in your mouth when your done drinking it that most IPAs do.
