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.

Pours a deep rich amber/orange with a thick head and very sticky lacing. Smells of hops, floral, citrus, pine. The taste is fantastic, very smooth hops with crisp citrus and piney backbone. I also get a sweet molasses feel with orange, very awesome. This is a clean easy to drink DIPA and zero bite at 9% ABV. Outstanding beer.

Here's the Dogfish sweet spot. A kick in the head, but enjoyable with a pleasant barley head which paves way for the bevery of mountainside hopes which are very much incoming. A bit of nutmeg? Some berry? And it makes ya feel good.

This is a wonderful balanced DIPA.

Pours golden Auburn.

Smells bready, fruity.

Tastes bready, sweet malt, pine, citrus and balanced bitternes with just the right amount of ABV heat.

Poured into a clear glass. Hazy, rich golden amber color with slow-rising carbonation making a thick head.

Smells piney, floral, very faint tobacco, and has many delightfully sweet citrus notes: cherry, tangerine, orange, pineapple, and mango.

A mix of cherry and orange peel smoothly flood the mouth delicately with very notable creamy carbonation, with a following grapefruit peel and hoppy aftertaste that balances the malty goodness.

Incredible.
