BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States

Style: American 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.

A: Pours a thick one and a half finger head that holds very well. Color of ripe tangerine, clear, and carbonated. Lacing is beautiful.

S: Smells bright and hoppy, but a balance of piney, grassy, fruity hops. There's a floral sweetness, some island fruits, pomelo,

T: Wow. When they say that there's a malt backbone, they weren't kidding. Perfect balance between the hops and malt, shining together in perfect harmony. There's a creaminess, richness, caramel, nuttiness, spices, sweetness, and a whole lot of flavors I can't quite pick out.

O: One of the best imperial IPAs I've had. This one knocks it out of the park in so many ways. So drinkable for 9%. This is both complex, yet approachable beer.

I like it because of the abv. I can drink two and be done. So smooth and no gross old alcohol smell like some cheap beers have.

This one totally lived up to the hype for me:

Look: Amber. 1/8” retaining head.

Smell: effervescent hops.

Taste: same.

Feel: warm, perfect level of carbonation for the style.

Overall: top 5 IPAs brewed in America

For my tastes this is Dogfish’s best brew. It appears to be easily obtainable on the east coast and that makes me happy. A lot of the really great beers seem to be in short supply or only at the brewery itself. Yay for Dogfish.

Dogfish brews some excellent IPA's and this is one of them. A very smooth and easy drinking beer for 9% as it hides the alcohol well. Surprisingly, not as potent of a hop bomb as one would expect. An excellent beer and very enjoyable.
