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.

Bottle from Proof. Pours a coppery-gold-orange. Head was off white but faded under a minute. Good legs and lacing is decent. Collar has large bubbles and very small bubbles that hold together for a medium thickness. Wisps hold throughout. Aroma is resiny and toasty malt, a touch of citrus as well. Taste is that big malt backbone with the hops playing a much smaller role than I remember. I definitely haven't had this beer in a few years, and my palate has changed considerably. I get some of the resin and citrus in the palate, but it's mostly a caramel malt sweetness. Mouthfeel is sticky sugar-like, medium body, medium-high carbonation. Slightly boozey.

A: great bronze color with awesome clarity, nice thin lacing
S: little bit of citrus with a sweet malt smell and some barley
T: Just like the smell at fist you get a little citrus and hops. But it's a very unique ipa with more of a barley and malt taste
M: medium feel and maybe a little more carbonation

Not my favorite dipa but very different

12 oz bottle poured into snifter glass.
Brewed date 9/6/2013; enjoyed 3/08/2014
Clear orange/copper colored brew with light carbonation and white head that left slight lacing along the entire glass. Smells of sweet fresh hops, citrus, pine, and possibly caramel. Tastes of sweet malts, slight caramel, a hint of bitter hops; but yet completely smooth and indulgent. Light, creamy, and full bodied mouthfeel. Extremely well-balanced, complex, DIPA that cannot be ignored. Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA is my recommended all-time favorite Imperial IPA. Enjoy; quite possibly the finest of beers!
