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.

Ok, so the package reads something like "best ipa in america" and come on, any one can say that right? While obviously I wouldn't go so far to write off the ipa's that I'm sure are out there and better than this one, 90 minute IPA is perhaps one of the greatest experiences in an Imperial IPA I've had.

Beautiful golden red and chestnut brown body with a think white head and lace. Pours smooth and creamy. Smell is heavy in the malt and hop categories, very crisp and refreshing, a little citrusy. The taste follows the smell nicely but has a nice bitter coffee aftertaste. The hops punch your mouth in the face in a way that's balanced out nicely by the fruity esters and creamy mouthfeel.

I had no problem finishing the fourpack that I picked up, and will probably go get another 4 pack real soon.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: a finger and a half of an off white head on a clear light orange body. foam fades slowly to a nice lacing

Smell: a nice sweet kick. followed by citrusy and spicy hops.

Taste: opens up with a a sweet doughy malt. blends nicely with a lemony hop. followed up by a resiny and spicy hop. in ipas i find there is a fine with sweetness and this flirts beautifully with it

Mouthfeel: warming, resin and hop bitterness linger

Overall: i see why this is a classic ipa. exceptionally crafted and tasty
