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.

Really doesn't taste like a double IPA at all. If this was billed as an American Strong Ale it would get a higher rating from me. Tastes alright, but it's cloyingly sweet and not hoppy enough. Has some disgusting molasses and licorice notes. Some bitterness but absolutely NO citrus, cat piss, or agressive hop character. This beer is fresh too (bottled 11/14/14 and today is 12/17/14). Every time I try Dogfish beers, I like them less and less.

Look, isn't this the standard by which all other double IPAs have to be judged?
Not necessarily the *best* 2IPA (PtY is great, yah?) but awesome, and ubiquitous.
Orange-gold color, unfiltered/opaque look, light head.
Rich mouthfeel, consistent with the unfiltered look and the sweet taste.
Somewhat sweet. Offset by lots of hops, for sure. Citrus.
Really well balanced, once you get used to the sweetness.
Good with food, without food, basically it's good with being alive.
Better draft, like so many others - alas not more common.

A great beer to sip on. it has a smith hoppy flavor you expect from a IPA. be carful with 9%alc it might be more then you wanted. This is one of my go to beers, for a relaxing Friday.
