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.

90 IBU

You can't go wrong with this IPA. It's a very solid Imperial. That being said I think it's a little overrated. There are better IPAs out there.

NOTE: I compare all other beers to Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale; there may be better out there, but many that are worse.
This gives a 2 finger aromatic head that lasts.
The color is a cloudy dark straw.
There is slight aroma from malt and hops.
There is a really nice balance of taste from malt and hops which is more citrusy than Sierra Nevada.
Bitterness is fully balanced throughout the palate with a hint of malt which offers a smooth finish. Very little bitter aftertaste. perfectly balanced flavor! Definitely not as bitter as Sierra Nevada 40 IBU or Torpedo 65 IBU. I really could not tell much difference between the 60 minute and the 90 minute IPA, except for the alcohol aftereffects, which were greater with the 90 minute. Wow, more like a wine!!!
