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.

A - Pretty dark for an IPA: amber, with a reddish hue. Solid two finger head with very good retention (1/2 finger head even to the end of the glass). Beautiful lacing all up and down the glass. Translucent.

S - Very mild for a DIPA. Citrus and hops, but no strong grapefruit or orange peel like I'm so used to in an IPA.

T - Super smooth and malty; wow! Yeah, it's a hop bomb, but the balance is maybe the best I've ever had in an IPA. Huge, huge malt profile, but nothing undesirable at all. Creamy. Citrus and pulp. Absolutely amazing.

M - I repeat: smooth and creamy. A bit of alcohol and carbonation sting, but very drinkable. Cloying as the beer warms slightly.

O - This beer surprised me. I've had DFH 60, and I kind of expected a hoppier version. While technically true, the amazing balance with the huge malt load absolutely shocked me.

Bottled 5/30/13, so pretty damn fresh!

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!
