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.

4.3/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance:
The bright orange body is incredibly clear and hosts steady streams of bubbly. Nice, thick off-white head has good retention and light lacing.

Aroma:
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.

Taste:
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.

Mouthfeel:
A medium to heavy bodied IPA with moderate carbonation. Zesty, clean finish is pretty sweet but enjoyable.

Overall:
A fantastic example of how balanced an Imperial IPA can be. Worth trying, even if you typically shy away from the style.

Serving type: bottle

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.
