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: Pours copper with a white head.

S: Substantial amount of malt for the style (though it doesn't dominate, but rather serves as a backbone), citrus peel, a touch of pine and floral scents.

T: Orange rind, peel and juice, not extremely fresh tasting orange, but it's strong, pine, substantial malt backbone, pretty typical DIPA.

M: Full bodied, average DIPA carbonation, thus not so great.

O: If I had to pick one DIPA that would be the standard DIPA, that represents the American idea of what a DIPA should be like, I would choose this one. That isn't to say that it's the best in my opinion, I definitely prefer more tropical IPAs, but the malt backbone here, uncharacteristic of the American DIPA, should be characteristic of the American DIPA.

Appearance
Medium-Dark copper color with a medium head and plenty of lacing
Smell
Pretty malty on the nose with some sweet citrus notes to compliment it
Taste
The sweetness I picked up from the nose kicks in, the bitterness as well, but not too much where it’s off-putting. There is a moderate alcohol presence as well but has a decent malt character to mask a lot of it
Overall
This is definitely a good IPA and esquire called it “possibly the best IPA ever made” but for me, I’d rather stick with the 60 minute.
