American Double / Imperial IPA |  9.00% ABV

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.

This review will be based on a fresh 90minute(2007) vs. a 1year aged 90 minute(2006). Served from 12oz bottles to pint glasses side by side. This review will be scored on the fresh vintage and the aged is there for pleasure.

2007 Appearance: This beer pours a very clean and clear hue of copper and amber. A pure white head stood up roughly a finger and a half high, then settled to just a white ring around my glass with a few islands. Many columns of beading can be found within.

2006 Appearance: Wow! This one poured very cloudy. Murky shades of burnt orange and the head remained a bright white with the same settlement as the fresh. I can barely see the beading inside,but it does still remain within.

2007 Smell: The aroma starts off with a spicy peppery hop.Citrusy orange in the middle and a smooth lightly caramel malt aroma.

2006 Smell: Mmmm. Smells more sweet and citrusy than the fresh. More fruity esters come out and even a hint of Belgian ale breadiness comes through. This has become much more malty in the nose.

2007 Taste: A clean taste of grassy and citrus hop bursts in my mouth followed by a very expressive amount of alcohol. This one has slight bitterness throughout, but not bad by any means. Sticky sweet malts are noted, but balanced very well with the hops.

2006 Taste: Whoa! This has drastically changed.This one starts off with sweet orange, spicy(peppery) on the tongue, and very delightful peanut brittle towards the finish. This has become a malt bomb. The hops are still there but has become noticably less aggressive. The alcohol seems to remain the same intencity,but masked a little better.

2007 Mouthfeel: Thinner side of medium bodied with a high amount of carbonation. Sticky, bitter, and a bunch of alcohol that drys out the palate.

2006 Mouthfeel: Thicker side of medium bodied with slightly less carbonation than the fresh. Sticky, malty, much less bitter and the alcohol is not as drying. Perhaps the hops is the drying factor on the palate?

2006-2007 Drinkability: This beer has always been a pleasure to drink. Basically, fresh equals more citrus and a hop bitterness versus the aged, still citusy, but less profound and more malty rather than hoppy. Both are extremely wonderful and easy to drink. I would like to try this with other great beers from Dogfish Head. Two thumbs up all the way and as always...
