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.

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Fairly transparent dark bronze body with a thick eggshell colored head. The head leaves good lacing on the glass. It might sound funny but it is nice to look at.

S: I get mostly a caramel sweet smell. There is a faint citrus smell a bit like smelling the outside of an orange where the smell isn't strong but still comes across. It's not that remarkable.

T: Very full of flavor. There's a rich toasty (not burnt) flavor similar to eating a fresh biscuit, a real grain flavor comes across. There's a back-bitterness to the beer that isn't too strong. A bit of pine flavor. No alcohol flavor which I feel is important to note, due to it being 9.0% ABV.

M: It drinks remarkably lighter than the beer really is. There is no overwhelming sensations in the beer that throw it off. It feels very full in the mouth, but a bit syrupy at times. A bit sticky when drinking. It also feels a bit under-carbonated, but the carbonation seems to work well with the malt flavors.

O: Overall this is a good go-to beer if you're looking for a nice well-rounded IIPA. It's not something to go for if you want a lot of hop flavor; this seems to focus more on bitterness. This is a malt-lover's dream.
