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.

Bottled 1/31/17, consumed on 5/25/17

This imperial IPA is extremely drinkable and smooth. Great balance of malt with the declared intensity of hop additions. This brew is in no way bitter and still, impressively, not overly sweet. Right out of the fridge into a belgian tulip glass, the brew tastes a bit coppery and lacks its potential depth. Let it heat up closer to 60*F for that real experience of caramel, malty, and hoppy goodness.

This is an exceptional brew. Rich looking dark amber. Smooth sipper with alcohol (6%) nicely blended. Fine mouthfeel, rewarding aftertaste. One of my favorites.

From an undated 12 ounce bottle into a snifter. Had a decent head. Sweet hop aroma. Sugar sweet hoppiness is very nice. Good chewing beer. Easy drinking. Watch out. 9% ABV. ENJOY to the fullest.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Look: Very hazy amber with a finger and a half dense foam with extensive lacing.
Smell: Faint hint of biscuit, a bit of floral hops, but not overpowering, mostly malty overtones.
Taste: Malt forward, but strong hop bittering presence and pleasant hop flavor and aroma.
Feel: A faint bit of alcohol is accompanied by a strong malt finish and light carbonation.
Overall: To me, this is how a DIPA tastes. Cheers!

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Schlafly tulip. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a 1/2 in. oily tan head. Leaves nice layered lace in the glass. Smells as malty as it does hoppy. Tastes sweet, malty, mildly hoppy and goes down very smooth for a IIPA. It actually tastes like an "older" style IIPA might, which I guess is appropriate given its heritage. I'm a fan, and I'm glad I have three more!

Pours a clear copper with light carbonation. A load of hop scent and grass notes. The taste is very bitter but this is how I love my beers. Mouthfeel is thick and oily.

= I dig this DIPA. Great taste with loads of hops. You can never go wrong.
