Style: American 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.

Widely available (having mine on an Amtrak) and not too expensive. Nothing to complain about whatsoever. Fairly tastey for a 9%-er, expected it to be more boozy flavored.

For me, this is everything you look for in an ipa. Easily one of the best beers you can get. A true icon among icons

Bottled 8/1/18

Picked up a sixer and will definitely age some of this. Clearish orange color with a two finger head, smells of piney, fruity, floral hops. The taste is unfamiliar and dark at first, but settles to a sweet and bitter tropical taste. Very floral and hoppy on the aftertaste. A thinner mouthfeel than expected but with moderate carbonation. IPA is not my favorite style, but DFH did a damn good job on this one. Truly a classic brew, highly complex but balanced.

A: Pours a thick one and a half finger head that holds very well. Color of ripe tangerine, clear, and carbonated. Lacing is beautiful.

S: Smells bright and hoppy, but a balance of piney, grassy, fruity hops. There's a floral sweetness, some island fruits, pomelo,

T: Wow. When they say that there's a malt backbone, they weren't kidding. Perfect balance between the hops and malt, shining together in perfect harmony. There's a creaminess, richness, caramel, nuttiness, spices, sweetness, and a whole lot of flavors I can't quite pick out.

O: One of the best imperial IPAs I've had. This one knocks it out of the park in so many ways. So drinkable for 9%. This is both complex, yet approachable beer.
