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.

In my opinion this beer is everything I look for.

It poured into a vintage beer mug a beautiful coppery color with a touch of haziness. Best poured cold out of the fridge just to control the super thick wonderful head that just keeps building.

This is a very hop forward beer with a distinct malt backbone. This is a beer made for sipping to savor every drop.

Sip at room temp to catch all of the subtleties in the hops and malts.

To me, I like to sip it in with an equal amount of air like a fine wine, roll it around on my tongue, catching the alcohol the hops and malts, then swallow.

It's a very sexy beer with a taste that lingers on your tongue making your taste buds scream for more. Two a night is my limit, the store can't get enough (three 4 paks at a time) when it comes to 90 minute I'm greedy.

First review so I thought I would make it one of my favorites. Here it goes:

Bottled on 7/2/13

Poured into pint glass fairly aggressively. Nice two finger head. Clear and orange/ brown in color. Smells very piney with nice sweetness behind it. Gives off some pineapple smell as well. Fruity and a little floral.

When you first sip this IPA the first thing that hits your tongue is bitterness which quickly gives way to some sweetness and fruit. Good carbonanation. Once you swallow immediately bitterness starts to arise and gets stronger and stronger but never unpleasant. Bitterness lingers for a little but take another sip and the whole experience from bitter, to sweet, to bitter happens all over again. Amazing!

The bottle claims to be 9% ABV but personally I don't smell or taste any of it but you feel it afterward. Nice kick in the pants after an amazing beer. Go give this beer a try.

Cheers!
