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-Pours clear gold with a hint of copper. Lots of thick white foam that leave a lot of lacing.
S-The hops are way past peak, not much aroma. I get mostly malt sweetness, some faint citrus, caramel and a hint of chocolate.
T-Lots of malt, at this point the flavor isn't far from a dopplebock or other malty beers. The malt body would be great if the hops were still present. Fairly sweet.
M-Thick, failry sticky and sweet, finishes slightly dry.
Overall, I've had this beer many times, it's one of my favorites, this one just happened to be a little too old. The hops had faded away and left a very tasty malty beer, just not great for an imperial IPA. There is still some bitterness just not what I know this beer normally has. I'll have this again in the future and re-write this because this example doesn't do the beer justice.

Smells somewhat citrusy but more malty, taste is too malty for my likings doesn't seem very well balanced. Not enough hops & too much malt IMO - bottle was bottled 2 months ago so maybe that has to do with the overbearing maltyness and lack of hops (IMO)... This is very drinkable for 9% but I prefer Firstone Walker's Double Jack / Stone Ruination as my go-to IIPAs (Pliny is awesome but I don't have regular access to it).

A good beer but I will not buy again, I'd rather spend $8 on a bomber of Ruination or Double Jack than $10 on a 4pack of this...
