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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Poured into a pint glass.

First off I think every time Ive had this beer its been off. Ill explain why.

Appearance....nice ambery gold with decent 2 finger head that sticks around. Nice looking beer.

Smell....Coffee! Lots of heavy coffee aromas coming through and I have no idea why. It kind of freaked me out. Ive had this beer maybe 4 times and its been the same smell every time. Ive heard people talk about this in off batches or bottles so Im not sure whats going on here. Getting through the coffee smell which is difficult theres a light earthy smell.

Tastes like coffee as well. Sort of a really roasty bitterness with all those hops. Its such an odd taste. i couldnt tell if I liked it or not. Not a drain pour but not worth the hype.

Mouthfeel was nice. More "thick" than I expected. Nice carbonation with a boozey sting. Pleasant in all aspects.

I would drink this again even if the bottles Ive had were off but i really want to try a fresh batch to see what all the fuss is about.

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.

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.
