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.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

12 oz bottle

A: Poured slowly into a stemmed tulip. Very little head, slightly off-white. Only the slightest amount of cloudiness. Dark golden amber in color. Outstanding! Oily lacing left on the side of the glass that slides right down into the beer leaving only a few traces where it started. A small carbonation geyser coming up from the bottom but not too strong. Just right, Head receded leaving a clear ring around the outside of the glass with the carbonation concentrated to the center. These are the tiniest carbonation bubbles I have seen ever. Its hard to even detect that there are individual bubbles on the surface. It looks like a cloud floating on the top of the ale. PERFECT!

S: Hops. Something else there but not sure what it is yet. Seems kind of like a musky piney earthy smell. Its nice but very unusual and hard for me to pinpoint. While the hops is up front, the smell is not aggressively strong. Its very nice and subtle. If I had a better olfactory set

T: Wow. Hops up front but not crushingly strong. Lots of complexity behind it. I am getting slightly sweet maltiness, pine, citrus and maybe caramel. At the very end is the ever so slight revelation of the ABV. It is very hidden. Extremely well blended and balanced.

M: Very smooth and creamy to start followed by the bite of the hops. Finally the bitterness is revealed and only in the back end can I slightly detect the warmth of the ABV. I would never guess that the ABV is 9 if I was blindfolded and not subject to the feeling of alcohol in my system.

O: This beer is a sleeper. Its fantastic. Its so complex and so well balanced that I keep asking myself what have I missed or what is missing here? I keep on finding more in the flavor. I want another one. This beer pulls all of it together into a cohesive mysterious lady. Be careful. She is very seductive and will lure you into her web of complexity. By the time you figure it all out, its going to be too late to escape. LOL.

4.6/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a mason jar at J&R Tacos in downtown Merced. Unfiltered honey-golden color, one-finger head with persistent lacing. Aroma is light roasted malt, and fragrant floral hops. Flavor, as you probably all know so well, is out-of-this-world amazing, malt, a little sweetness, a bit of apricots, a bit of pine, and delightful hops, well-balanced, and not at all mild. Mouthfeel is medium, not quite chewy. Overall this is the most amazing flabbergasting tasty IPA I have ever sampled. But what do I know? Try it, if you haven't!
