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.

I have tasted the 90 minute IPA on a couple different ocassions and it is always solid. A nice dark yellow pour with a head that does disappear but laces nicely down the glass. The reason I am finally doing a review in writing is because I had the 90 Minute IPA with sushi today for lunch. What a combo! The beer with its hoppiness, its clean palate, and citrus/pine finish following a spicy california roll and some raw tuna and salmon was phenomenal. I got nervous at first because I am a little crazy with the wasabi at times but noticed that the seafood and rice teamed up with the pickled ginger and wasabi was complimented completely with the beer. I love good beer and I love good food, the only thing better than both is to find something that goes incredibly together. This was one of those moments.

DFH 90 minute IPA is a solid east coast style imperial IPA. This beer uses English Barley which gives it a relatively creamier and maltier flavor as compared to a citrusy west coast IPA. Upon first sip, one can easily appreciate the subtle balance and flavors and alcohol which enters the palate. This IPA has a substantial foamy head and smells of molasses and hops. It's hard to describe the 90 minute IPA besides just saying that it has a sophisticated and high quality taste.

A- Great head retention, bright beer with amber color, slightly dark amber color.

S- Biscuity malt on the nose, mellow alcohol smell. Hop aroma present, but hard to distinguish certain hop characterstics through the malt and alcohol.

T- Caramelly and slight biscuity. Perfect balance of malt and hops... tell ya that.

M- Perfect carbonation, full bodied mouth feel.

Very well balanced and easy drinking for 9%.

A: Pours a honey amber color with whitish solid head.

S: A sweet hoppy citrus scent and subtle malts mixed in.

T: Moderate hops with semi-sweet malts that give a superb balance. The citrus is not overpowering at all. Moderate carbonation makes for a great mouthfeel.

O: Excellent brew. Dogfish does not disappoint, and they have a strong command of their hops.

I am very lucky to have this available at my local grocery store, almost anytime I want it. I am also lucky this is one of my wife's favorite beers. Many times, she is sending me to go get some, oh darn.

Pours a perfect amber, very clear. Nice off-white head with medium lacing all the way.

Smells like big hops and roasted malt. Pungent and sweet at the same time.

Tastes of bold hops which are well balanced by the maltiness. The flavor lasts throughout the whole taste, bold and balanced, with barely a hint of the malt sweetness.

Feels sticky and almost thick. Carbonation is right, with a good alcohol sensation.

I love the bold flavor of this beer. A big punch and good balance make this one of our favorites.
