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.

This is an exceptional brew. Rich looking dark amber. Smooth sipper with alcohol (6%) nicely blended. Fine mouthfeel, rewarding aftertaste. One of my favorites.

From an undated 12 ounce bottle into a snifter. Had a decent head. Sweet hop aroma. Sugar sweet hoppiness is very nice. Good chewing beer. Easy drinking. Watch out. 9% ABV. ENJOY to the fullest.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Look: Very hazy amber with a finger and a half dense foam with extensive lacing.
Smell: Faint hint of biscuit, a bit of floral hops, but not overpowering, mostly malty overtones.
Taste: Malt forward, but strong hop bittering presence and pleasant hop flavor and aroma.
Feel: A faint bit of alcohol is accompanied by a strong malt finish and light carbonation.
Overall: To me, this is how a DIPA tastes. Cheers!

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Schlafly tulip. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a 1/2 in. oily tan head. Leaves nice layered lace in the glass. Smells as malty as it does hoppy. Tastes sweet, malty, mildly hoppy and goes down very smooth for a IIPA. It actually tastes like an "older" style IIPA might, which I guess is appropriate given its heritage. I'm a fan, and I'm glad I have three more!

Pours a clear copper with light carbonation. A load of hop scent and grass notes. The taste is very bitter but this is how I love my beers. Mouthfeel is thick and oily.

= I dig this DIPA. Great taste with loads of hops. You can never go wrong.

Pours a frosted amber-orange with two fingers of dense, off-white foam. Head retention is fantastic, with great lacing left behind. Aroma is earthy and biscuity malts with floral hops. Not overly loud, but it is a dense, earthy aroma. Flavor profile puts floral, herbal hops on the tongue immediately, with a herbal hop finish. Earthy, biscuit malts swell up in the middle before stepping out of the way of the hop finish. Mouth feel is thick, with a huge, velvety texture. It's quite filling. Overall, this beer is 9% and definitely carries the presence of a 9% beer. While not extremely high, it is in dangerous territory. The thick feel, and dense flavor profile really level this one off as a pleasant sipper. Very enjoyable beer without an over-done bitterness.

Served in a 12oz snifter from bottle.

Looks absolutely gorgeous, clear pale amber with a thin head and lots of bubbles streaming up. Nice lacing down the glass. Smell is subdued but hoppy and slightly fruity. Tastes quite bitter with hints of grapefruit, and a bit of booziness comes through. However, the malt balanced it out pretty well and it's a good sipping beer. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy, lightly carbonated and finishes dry. Overall a very nice IPA, I'm glad I can finally get this in Minnesota. Bottle was almost two months old, so ill be looking for a fresh one wherever I can.
