Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

A classic but no longer all that exceptional, I think. It’s a dark gold colored beer with a good sized off white head and nice lacing, decent retention. Aroma is mostly citrus hops, particularly grapefruit, some pine, and lots of malt. Smells sweet and bitter, and it is. Lots of hops but not super bitter tasting, biscuity, sweet malt is quite prominent. More prominent than I’d like at this juncture. On the sweet side, even for a DIPA. Taste is very good but not as hop forward as I used to think it was; times and palettes change, I suppose. Booze is present in the nose, in the taste, and in the finish. Definite warming sensation with this one. Medium carbonation and body with a slightly creamy, sticky mouthfeel.

This is definitely one to try if you haven’t already and are a fan of the style. It’s well made but I no longer seek it out; just too much malt, sweetness, and in-your-face booze for my taste these days.
