Have had this beer many times, but most recently at Bridget Foy's in Philadelphia, which has suddenly begun specializing in an all local 12 tap draft list. Nice. While big props go out to Dogfish Head for their innovation in the big IPA series and with Randall, despite Russian Rivers foaming about unnecessary hop devices, the double and triple IPA market is no longer what it was even 2 years ago. With ever more breweries pushing not only the IBU limit but also the quality and flavor of these big beers there's ever more pressure on DFH to stay competitive. While 90 minute is still a wonderful beer it no longer ranks among the top in this category for me.
The beer is poured into a fluted chalice with a white two finger head. Color is deep orange-copper and completely clear.
The aroma builds from a clean almost estringent smell to a biting sharp cheddar in the back of the nose with sweet alcohol and rosy malts rounding out the smell.
The taste overall is balanced, but slightly more alcohol than I would have liked. Front is this sharp cheddar bite with middle of sweet alcohol and hay followed by a nice piney hop finish and clean end. Lingering reminder of an aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is good, nice carb, mouth filling but not overly thick with alcohol. Body is good but not full.
Drinkability is also quite high, but with the significant alcohol content and flavor it may not be as highly drinkable as others.
Serving type: on-tap

The bright orange body is incredibly clear and hosts steady streams of bubbly. Nice, thick off-white head has good retention and light lacing.
Earthy. Hoppy, but somehow not as potent as expected. Plenty of pine and hints of rye and chocolate break though a light caramel backbone. Vague mahogany note. Very clean.
Potent bitter bite hits you right away, but is quickly displaced by a smooth and sweet wave of thick caramel. A bit of alcohol on the tail end reminds you that this one packs a punch and warms you simultaneously.
A medium to heavy bodied IPA with moderate carbonation. Zesty, clean finish is pretty sweet but enjoyable.
A fantastic example of how balanced an Imperial IPA can be. Worth trying, even if you typically shy away from the style.

4/5 rDev -6.5%

Served from an ice cold bottle into a glass.
Appearance: It's a beautiful golden color with a nice inch head from probably and over aggressive pour, oh well deal with it. Some carbonation but not as much as Ive seen with other DogFishHead beers.
Smell: Fresh and smells of citrus.
Taste: Kinda thick but not like a stout, definitely more hops bite then the Midas Touch.
Mouth feel: Again thick not stoutish thick and yes I just coined that bitch "stoutish" , and yes the ABV is getting the best of me.
Overall: Well done my friends this is labeled the best IPA around and I'm not going to argue, fill up the fridge and you won't be disappointed.
