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.

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

GLASS: Snifter
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 45 degrees
BOTTLING DATE: 01/30/09

Pours a bright copper color with serious orange highlighting. Two-fingers of creamy, light orange tinted foam. Retention is great. Lacing is spotty and very sticky.

Great big hop presence mixes with big sweet malt notes. Caramel covered pieces of grapefruit and pineapple. Apples and raisins in pine sap. Mild presence of nice yeastiness. Nice hint of floral notes.
This is a fabulous smelling beer.

Big, rich, butterey caramel notes hit me first. Floral and citrus hops notes follow, leading up to a nice bitter kiss on the finish. A taste of bread made with fresh fruits and drizzled with pine infused caramel.
This is exactly what I want from an IIPA. Huge hops and malts working together to make an incredible balance that is completely enjoyable.

Thick, rich, smooth and creamy. Nice full body. This is the embodiment of what I love about beers.

The 9.0%ABV is so cleverly hidden that this one could be extremely dangerous, if you aren't careful. Very drinkable.

4/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
