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.

Bottle poured into a tulip

A: Pours a translucent copper hue with an eggshell foam head, darker than most IPA's but very welcome.

S: Doesn't smell overly hoppy, just appropriately so, and also has a decently rich malt character, sweet and dense. Some spicy and grainy traits develop along with some earth tones. The maltiness in the aroma is almost more telling than the hops.

T/M: Tastes richer and thicker than paler ales and has a mild alcohol grain bite up front, similar to a harsh whiskey but not nearly as potent. Hoppy bitterness starts to become apparent after some time along with caramel and molasses. If you let it warm just a bit, the experience is a lot like a nice bourbon, exquisite, smooth and meant to be enjoyed slowly. The balance is phenomenal but doesn't carry nearly as much bitterness as other, hoppier IPA's.

If you want something strictly hoppy, this would not be the best option, but for a very well balanced beer to sip on, it's hard to get much better than this.
