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.

Pours a nice deep orange with a two finger head. Good head retention. Not quite as hazy as one would expect.

Toasty, sweet malts hit the nose first paired with a solid, sweet hop presence. tart fruitiness barely comes through, as the malt is definitely more forward.

Peppery hops stand out as the malt base really plays a nice supporting role. The hops are clean, refreshing and citrusy, but more bitter. The real backbone of this beer is the malt, which is just sweet enough as to not interfere with the huge hop presence. The malts are nice and toasty with hints of earthy rye, barley and wheat. A slight coffee-like quality results from the bitterness and roastiness.

Slick, dry, and satisfying. That's it.

Overall, Dogfish 90 is definitely in my top 10 even though i'm a dedicated West Coast hophead. The hops are really bright and playful but it really is the malt bill that I think makes this beer stand out.

I did not care for the malt make up, nor the apricot smell and taste. I prefer a west coast style hoppy citrusy and bitter imperial. I have not been impressed with dogfish head, which isn't to say they're bad, just not for me.
