American Double / Imperial IPA |  9.00% ABV

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.

A classic, rich, full IPA w/ strong hints of chocolate. Truly great. Can't give enough respect to Dogfish and Sam C. For opening up the craft beer market. ... Hope to make it down there to Milton DE to visit soon. Any of you Hosers wanna join me? Love Bob & Doug Mckenzie even before I enjoyed good beer.

12oz bottle with a bottling date of 9/18/13 poured into a tulip glass.

A: Beautiful clear rich copper-amber body. Foamy light beige head with great lacing and retention.

S: Bread and toffee flavors dominate the nose.

T: Carmel malts, as well as grapefruit hops, some raisin and green apple flavors as well.

M: Full syrupy mouthfeel with slight hop zing on the back end. Sweet coating on the teeth and gums well after my final sip.

O: The beer was bottled exactly three months ago from the date I reviewed it.I found this to be both an amazing beer as well as an amazing example of the style. If I find this beer fresh I will defiantly revisit it as Im curious to see how the flavors morph. However as it stands now if I had to drink one IPA for the rest of my life, this would be it.
