BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

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.

Just not a great brew. No good marrying of hops and malt.

Pours a beautiful bronze/amber with a one finger white head. Creamy sticky lacing. Slight haze. Hits the nose with piney citrus hops and sweet malts. The flavor is a terrific balance of mildly bitter hops and big bold malts for amazing balance. Chewy. Almost rich on the palate. Dark fruit. Full bodied with perfect carbonation. Surprising mild when compared to other IPA's. Quite unique. Fantastic how the complete blend comes on with a porter aspect. Great IPA. Simply a great beer. One of the best. This will always find a spot in my beer refrigerator.

Significant eggshell head, golden amber color.

Great nose of astringent herbs, tobacco, black tea, fruitcake and over-ripe tropical fruit.

Rich brown sugar sweetness, lengthy herbal bitterness, full bodied, slightly slick, oily mouth-feel.

This is unapologetically bombastic beer. Not particularly elegant but pleasantly boozy with a nice depth of aroma.
