Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 11-19-2001

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.

Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. Color was caramel amber. An inch of head. Healthy amount of bubbly lacing on the top. Sporadic but consistent film on the sides.

Smelled caramel malts up front. Also some coffee and toffee. Citrus hops came in late, which was a bit surprising.

Tasted similar to the nose with some more alcohol bite. Caramel rules the day here. So smooth.

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Smooth finish.

Was looking forward to trying this beer. Thanks to Chris Harris for picking some up for me. Yum!

A: Pours a clear amberish-orange with about a finger of white head that hangs around for awhile.

S: Piney hops, fruity sweetness, with a slight caramel/malty scent.

T: Absolutely delicious - Bitter hop taste is the first thing that is apparant, and it follows the smell closely. The really nice thing about this beer is that it is completely balanced out by a sweet fruity/malty/citrusy taste. The bitterness and sweetness keep playing back and forth in the mouth, but they don't overpower each other, and it is a real joy to drink. Also, the 9% is pretty well hidden, in my opinion.

M - Thick/full-bodied. It almost has a slight syrup-like feel to it. Very creamy and nice on the palate. Medium carbonation.

O - I was never a huge fan of IPA's until I had this beer. It is definitely one of my favorite brews as well as one of the best from Dogfish Head. It has encouraged me to try more beers from this style.

Nice amber orange style hue. Lots of lacing on the glass. Smell of pine, resin, oil, and floral type hops. Perfect blend of sweetness and bitterness. Could see this pairing really, really well with Thai and Indian food, or anything that like the beer, combines bitter with sweet. See this pairing very well with food overall. Love the taste and mouthfeel of this beer. Well worth the hype.
