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.

This beer is just great, I should have reviewed sooner.

Pours bright and clear amber with a huge head that stuck around for a few minutes. I wouldn't be surprised if the bubbles lasted 90 minutes lol. Probably finish it before then. 30 minutes in and they're still there.

Smell is right away floral hops, fruity and complex, with orange, lemon, pineapple, kiwi, peach, pear. Not getting much pine smell in this, it's all fruit.

Taste is yummy, to say the least. Tons of complex fruit and hops, tasty malts, fresh multigrain bread. If you use your imagination you can sort of pick out any light colored fruit flavor, its that rich, but not overpowering. 9% leaves you wanting more and also doesn't have a alc. burn.
It has a little bit of citrus but I'd say its more on the peachy and mango side of fruity.

Mouthfeel is rich and robust with medium carbonation and a sticky hoppy resin feel.

I love this beer, along with 120 min IPA, but thats another story. Don't pass this one up.

Drank from my Mane Liquor Tulip

A - Pours a copper colour with an off white head that reduces quickly to a film.

S - Nice aromas of hop and grapefruit.

T - Plenty of hop in here with and real added bite. The main flavour is grapefruit, the malt gives it a very nice smoothness, the finish is long and bitter.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation

O - This one certainly is well crafted and has something quite different in its balance. Recommended.
