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 was a good beer. But I've had better bitters/ IPAs.

Poured into a tulip glass. Lovely amber brown color. Tight white head of around a finger or so, settled back almost immediately but leaves lace on glass as it goes down.

The first taste is hops, naturally. What part of the tongue is said to taste bitterness? The front did. The sides did. The back did. The middle did. Kinda fun, and definitely different.

But it is all hops and not much else. Oh, I tasted the malts, alright. They were almost like scotch in flavor. The 9% alcohol contributes to that. But they were overpowered by the hops.

I like hops and I like bitter. I guess that I like a better balance, though. Maybe the "60 minute" will do it for me.

Just had a great sampler of IPAs at a shore tavern. DFH 90 was among the four I sampled. Have to say, nice brew and quite drinkable for the 9% abv. Head was one finger and left some nice lacing down the glass. Color was typical of any other American IPA. Nose was nice, but not overpowering. Taste was similar to 60 Min, but a bit more of everything. For some reason, I find an earthiness to DFH IPAs--- this follows suit. Waitress gave me a second half-pint on the house, after the first four---probably didn't need it, but... ;)
