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.

Bottled on 02/03/11. Poured into a Duvel Tulip.

A - Pours a dark orange color with reddish hues. It formed a nice 2-finger fluffy beige head. The beer has nice clarity and lacing. A nice thing head remained through

S - Smells like slightly overripe tropical fruits and oranges with pine and grassy hop notes.

T - Grapefruit and orange up front with bready malt, honey and caramel sweetness in the middle. Very strong pine and grass hop bitter in the finish.

M - Heavy bodied that is nice and smooth on the way in with moderate carbonation. The sip coats well, you can literally feel the hop oils. There is a little bit of alcohol warmth.

O/D - This beer is still good nearly a year after bottling. The hop character has definitely changed, losing some aroma and picking up more grassy notes. It's definitely shifted the balance toward the malty side, but it's still hop-heavy.

Poured from their 12oz bottle...

Appearance - Poured 2 fingers of foamy eggshell head, color is a lite golden orange amber. Great lacing when finished.

Smell - Big citrus, sweet ruby red grapefruit, touch of pineapple, touch of carmel candy.

Taste - Wow, holy grapefruit! Huge citrus grapefruit flavors here, yellow and ruby. Starts with an almost sweet citrus flavor, like a mix of pineapple and grapefruit, then red grapefruit, then yellow (as the more bitter citrus asserts), then finishes with grapefruit peel n zest, with some sharper bitter pine coming long into the finish - and some green grassy bitter hops. Touch of heat in between sips. This is not nearly as sweet imho as some of the other reviews I've read, just enough to counterbalance the hops here.

Mouthfeel - This one is lite to medium mouthfeel, quite a bit of carb actually, which accentuates the citrus and the crispness, and a few sharp edges on the sides of the tongue. Finish is adequately bitter and dry.

Overall - This is a very good DIPA, although nothing spectacular imho. Nearly the same as ST's 2XIPA in flavor, but I can get a 6xer of 2XIPA for $2 less than a 4pak of 90 minute.
