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.

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.

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance - Pours a light amber with a clean head of about 1/2 inch that fades quickly leaving nice lacing on the glass. 4.75

Smell - Hop forward nose with notes of lemon and orange peel. Malt comes strong in the nose to leading to an excellent balance. 5.00

Taste - Hop. Beautiful balance between alpha acids and the mellowing effect of the malt. Spice notes linger in the back with small amounts of cardamon. Long finish that lingers with malt primarily. Excellent - 4.75

Mouthfeel - Small bubbles with a viscous like tendency to coat the palate. Amazing - 5.0

Overall - 4.75

The experience works for me! Every thing about this beer is headed on the right road to meet my expectations. You could build a universe from it's foot print. I guess I should be more careful with how powerful a beer can be. Overall a winner and will visit again.
