BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States
dogfish.com

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.

I finally found this one out here in California and I'm not disappointed. Pours a deep amber with a sticky white head. Aroma is of slightly fruity hops, very pleasant smell. Taste very well balanced between the floral/fruity hops and a little biscuity malt. Not much citrus. Goes down smooth. Very enjoyable. Prost!

Not too sure on this one. I know it's highly rated, but this isn't one of my favorite in this style. The sweetness is reminiscent of a paw paw... A flavor that can go either way for me.

Poured into a Belgian beer glass a deep golden,orange,amber. 1 1/2 " creamy head, sticky white lacing on the glass. Tastes like a well balanced "east coast", or English imperial IPA. High quality caramel malt backbone. Somewhat floral. Mild hoppiness compared to West coast hop bombs. ( Which I also enjoy very much) Mild fresh baked bread, flowers. Feels smooth and quaffable for a 9% ABV. Not too slick, Not too dry. Delicious example. Again Kudos to DFH !! A little more hop bite to offset the malts and I think you would be solid 5.That is my opinion. But then again if it isn't broken don't fix it.Great brew!

This beer is my favorite IPA. It was my introduction to IPAs when I got into beers in '06, back when it wasn't in grocery stores and I had to scrounge out of the way to a specialty store.

I've had countless IPAs since, and it still tastes like the ultimate ambrosia of the gods to me even after all these years. There's no other IPA like it. 90 forever!
