Availability: Year-round

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.

I'd chose this over the 60 Min IPA. It's a great tasting IPA!

This will piggyback off the other reviews. The pour generated a fantastic darker gold (apricot?) color that had virtually no haze at all. Clear through, which seemed odd for a big hop beer. June 2014 bottling date poured Sept 2014. Too long?

Nice pine-dominant hop aroma. Poured cold, so I let it sit awhile. It need it. First sips were not as flavorful as "maybe the best IPA in America" should warrant. However, I do have a West Coast bias, so...

Once allowed to develop this did indeed deliver lovely piney and floral hop notes. Minimal malt with a little stickiness-alcohol in the finish: exactly what I want in an IIPA. Top shelf stuff, even for an East Coast effort.
