Notes: 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.

Taste more alcohol bitterness compared to hoppy bitterness, I usually mix with lager a little to tone down alcohol bitterness.

Perfect example of an IPA.

One of the best "mainstream" IPAs out there

Type: IPA
Taste: Intense, balanced, and hop-forward
Color: Deep amber

A standout example of the IPA style. Pours a deep amber, intense and well balanced.
Strong hop, blends pine, citrus and resinous hops. Memorable impression. One of my favourites.

I came across this on a recent rail tour of the US. It’s available in the cafe car on most of Amtrak’s long distance services. It looks like there’s no requirement to state the abv of beers at the point of sale as I didn’t realise it was 9% til I had the first sip! Lovely stuff though sadly not available in the UK.

One of my favorite dipa ish IPAs. It has a wonderful full bodied dipa taste but doesn't hit you like a higher alcohol ipa. I love the higher ibu that seems to be lacking in many ipa's these days.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Look: sap color orange
Smell: hoppy, malty, slightly citrusy and piney hop
Taste: piney hop, rind/pithe, malt, some sweetness in there, slight bitterness that starts to build up but then just kinda doesnt (if that makes any sense)
Feel: Nice full boy, low carbonation (the feel of this beer might be my favorite thing about it)
Overall: Pretty crushable, fairly tame, nothing too offensive. That being said, nothing stands out, but I suppose you could also say that just means its well balanced. Not my cup for IPA's, but good

*poured from a can on clearance that "expires" in 4 months, so I def think this needs a revisit with a fresh brew.

Pours an opaque rusty orange, thin collar of head with good retention and no lacing. Nose is sappy hops and malt, low grade maple syrup, cooked barley and kasha, honey sticks. Taste essentially follows - malts are sweet (honey, maple, sap), while the hops impart a pretty tame bitterness and light spice. Mouthfeel, despite the sweetness and heft, isn't too heavy, while the carbonation stays light. 90 Minute tastes like an ingredient to me - it has a distinct taste (sweet, spicy, sappy honey) - that might make up the main seasoner in a muffin or a sweet bread. On its own, however, it's a little too overpowering to be enjoyable. I remember 90 minute being this huge outlier when it came out, and weirdly, it still is in terms of its flavor profile among imperial IPAs.

Very smooth almost chewy. My 1st time with this world class IPA today and I am impressed. The alcohol is there and you should be prepared for it, but overall the taste smell finish and mouth feel was excellent

From Siciliano’s Market in Grand Rapids - had several times but now a few years - will not wait that long again.
Pours a clear orange amber colour with slightly tawny coloured head that replenishes nicely with a little swirl.
Nose is at once hoppy with citrus rind, tangerine, a touch of tropical fruit and floral aroma , but solidly malty with a subtle caramel note.
Taste is a barrage of hops - piney, citrus, orange, pineapple and marmalade with a bitterness that is tamed by the sweet toasted malt with hints of caramel and honeysuckle.
A sticky slightly resinous full mouthfeel finishes this with a coating bittersweetness.

Easily my favorite imperial IPA and possibly IPA period.

Pours a beautiful crystal clear amber color with a tan-white head that long persists as a rim.

Aroma is very strongly floral and earthy.

Despite being rated as 90 IBUs this is not a bitter beer thanks to the adequate amount of malt being added to balance the hops. The flavor is citrusy and earth with a crisp finish, making this an easy drinking beer despite its high ABV.

Really just the ideal poster child for the style of IPAs as a whole.

L: Clear amber, two fingers of antique-white head, the persistent foam leaves lace.
S: Kind of a malty aroma with notes of citrus and pine.
T: Earthy hops with less citrus than the nose but grapefruit and pine, medium sweet malt, herbal tea note, nice malt-hop balance, moderate bitterness spikes at the finish.
F: Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth frothy feel, peppery finish.
O: Very drinkable, balanced, well done classic style DIPA.
