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.

90 IBU

Pours a golden amber color with half inch of white head,and no lacing.

Smells of malt and booze.

Taste is balanced with nice hoppy flavor and the malt smooths out almost all bitterness, with slight booziness, and boozy aftertaste.

Smooth mouthfeel with ever so slight a alcohol burn(very slight).

Overall nice beer just not enough citrusy hoppy flavor. The malt is a little to much for my taste, I want the hop flavor. Probably won't be buying this again.

This was my first DFH IPA.

A - Amber color. Long lasting slightly creamy head after medium proper pour into a pint glass.

S - Hoppy. Piney. Very hoppy. -- I couldn't get much farther past that but I am NOT complaining! I dove into the beer after the quick nose check.

T - As it smells, but even more hoppier. Exactly what I'd want, and expected, in this IPA.

M - Creamy through the head. Medium body with a good hops finish. The right amount of carbonation.

O - 9% ABV and a great taste: this one is going on my 'to drink' list.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

strong coffee aroma changes to red and tropical fruits and toffee as beer warms; complex dark malts

mostly tongue zing from start changes to full palate tropical fruits; not piney; good malt backbone. nice lingering aftertaste

not much head (one finger) dissipates quickly not much lacing

carbonation light but not needed; hoppiness carries most of bite

alcohol well hidden in complex flavors; unique flavors

food beer for spicy; roasted meats; asian cuisine...cuts through spices and

not comparable to Sauvignon blanc as reported on Dogfish website; much more going on
with this beer...think Zinfandel for food match up

I like how they describe it: pungent not crushing hop flavor 9% alcohol

overall an excellent brew

A decent beer, though I prefer more 'hops' than 'malt' in my IPA (the balance seems more towards the malt side). Decent, burnt-amber color that betrays the maltiness of this IPA. I can see why its rated so high but, for my taste, seemed a bit too flat (i.e. nothing popped).
