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

bottle into large wine glass

a-light amber color, relatively clear. finger sized head which dissolves after a few minutes at least in this glass.

s- some hops, a little malt - nothing too pronounced. maybe some tropical fruits? there is a faint sweetness. overall a pleasant and non overwhelming nose.

t- very smooth (surprising given the alcohol content.) Very well balanced, with enough sweetness the whole way through and just slightly subtly bitter towards the end, but not anything like most IPAs. Not much lingers after.

mf - some bubbles on the front, gentle on the back

overall - Highly reccomended.

poured from a bottle into a snifter glass.

A- one finger of bubbly white head. a nice orange reddish body. crystal clear with lots of active carbonation.

S- a total mix of caramelly malt and herbal hops. it's rather pungent but not totally pleasant. maybe just confusing to my senses.

T- that is exactly what a double IPA is supposed to taste like. It's a hop bomb, it's bitter, it's a crash course in citrus vs. herbal, but a slight amount of malty stickiness is left on the teeth.

M- It's very spritzy. it's semi dry. medium to medium-light bodied.

O- Not a bad DIPA at all, but not my favorite. The color and taste were perfect, but I really would have enjoyed it more if the aroma was a little more defined and the mouth feel was a little softer.

Appearance on this beer is awesome. Clear orange/copper color with a good head and tons of lacing down the entire glass. Delicious super resiny hop aroma that tickles the nose but not without some sweet malty characteristics coming across as well especially as it warms. The taste is incredibly balanced. I was expecting this to be a serious hop bomb and don't be mistaken this is quite a hoppy beer but compared to some west coast imperial or double IPA's the flavor of this brew is not dominated by it's hop qualities and one can really pick up on it's roasted malt characteristics. This is a great beer but I think that is pretty much common knowledge by this point. I honestly don't even really know why I bothered reviewing this. Go get some, it's damn good.
