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.

Served to a Spiegelau IPA glass

A: A beautiful dark copper colour, persistent head and lacing in white. It's very attractive in glass.

S: Sweet, flowery, malty, a definite reminder that this is an East Coast Imperial IPA.

T: Sweet, different, but pleasant and balanced. Even with 9% ABV it's hard to detect for me.

M: Lighter bodied than most Imperials I've tried. Sweet, refreshing, and not cloying. Excellent carbonation with this one, remarkable head retention.

O: I like it very well, one of the best in the East, though not a first choice for me, I do drink it regularly. I recommend it, and if you haven't tried it, it's a must have on principle.

Great Beer. Have had on many occasions, always on tap. Good body. Dark in color. Hoppy bite. Not a tremendous head. Clean lacing. IMO one of the best IPA's out there. Always a favorite, and a strong starter. Hard to find in 4 packs in my area. One of my top ten.

Serving type: on-tap

Served to a snifter

A: Beautiful transparent copper color. One finger of head with outstanding retention and lacing, perhaps the best I've seen in this particular snifter. In my opinion the epitome of how double IPAs should look.

S: Floral, slightly citrus hops, and hints of alcohol. Sweet malt as well.

T: Much more malty than I expected honestly, balance is nice none the less however. Floral, citrus, and even a tad peppery or spicy hop flavors can be detected. Alcohol is of little concern and only becomes noticeable as the beer warms.

M: Body is lighter than I expected as well, not that this is a bad thing at all because it makes the beer easier drinking and less filling. Carbonation is well done and perhaps better then I found 60 minute.

O: An American craft classic and rightfully so. It , will perhaps not the best Double IPA, is still very well done and has a somewhat unique malt character and not to mention bizarre construction method. Well done Dogfish.
