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.

About time to try this famous american ipa. Smooth pour, clear dark orange with a creamy, one finger head that dissipates into bubbly islands. Smell is bitter pungency of hops up front, backed by sweet malt and citrus. Not too powerful of an aroma but well rounded. First taste: gentle explosion of hoppy bitterness with some lingering grapefruity sourness. Generously carbonated feel. Perfect balance of smooth and crispy. Goes down like nothing. Overall: extremely drinkable and undeniably a quality brew

Sunny and 64 on boxing day so why not pop open one of my Christmas gifts! Pours a brilliant crystal clear orange into my chalice and emits an almost orgasmic hoppy malt citrusy piney gush of olfactory assault. Tastes slightly syrupy nectary blend of malts and hops with accents of brown sugar and grapefruit. Mouthfeel is oh so smooth like nectar of the gods coating your throat on the way down. One of my favorite of the DFH lineup and overall my favorite of the East Coast IPA variety. Cheers.

12 oz bottle poured into a dogfish head pint glass

Appearance... Filtered crystal clear. Nice light amber color with orange and pink hues. Pours with about a quarter to half inch of white head, which lingers around the rim. Very little visible rising carbonation in the glass.

Smells... Fruity. Moderate and pleasant hop presence in the back. Oakey or woody aroma.

Tastes... Grapefruit. Woody or oak flavor. Malty. Moderate bitterness at the finish, which lingers in the mouth for a few seconds.

Mouthfeel... Good density. Well balanced texture. Light sting on the tongue from the alcohol.

Overall, it's a very enjoyable IPA. There is plenty of hops for the folks who like their IPAs very hoppy. The most interesting and great aspect of this beer is how they've woven the other flavors into the traditional IPA style.

A- copper orange color but extremely clear. You can read through this beer (provided you have a clean glass.) Nice firm 1 finger head that sticks around for a bit. Lacing looks great.

S- Hops with a malty bready raisin note to it. Maybe even some hints of caramel.

T- More maltier than the 60 min. You still get the hops in the but again with this beer the finish is short and sweet. It has a more raisiny flavor to it. Like a dark dried fruit.

M- Smooth like the 60 and creamy. Just a touch of bitter in the finish but very faint.

O- This one is getting two thumbs up. It's quite unlike most Imperials out there Not the big hop flavor that you expect because of the sweetness to this one. Now it's on to the 120...
