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 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.

The appearance was a nice hazy golden yellow to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dies within about a minute and leaves some good somewhat sticky lacing. The aroma has always been powerful through sweet caramel malts combined with a super nice sweet bittersweet citrus to light piney hoppiness. The taste has always been a super nice long bittersweet citrusy caramel flavoring. On the palate, this one sits about a medium on the body with a nice structured sessionability. I want to sip it but often find myself constantly picking up the glass. Overall, really good DIPA always easy to find and always giving me good vibes to sip on whenever I can find it.

Bottled on 2/20/17. Enjoyed a couple on St. Patrick's Day 3/17/17
L: Poured to YETI. Beautiful deep golden amber, thick creamy amber white head. Solid lacing.
S: Light hoppy floral aroma.
T: Excellent hoppy flavor; juicy, creamy, strong, floral and ripe fruit, a little earth and pine bitterness combined with a great, rich malt balance. Website says brandied fruitcake, raiseny, citrusy. I agree.
F: Spicy abv bite. Very drinkable.
O: Reminds me of a mixture between Loose Cannon Hopx3 and Harpoon IPA.
