BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States
dogfish.com

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.

I'm not too bullish on Dogfish as a whole (Although I have a soft spot for the SeaQuench Ale if it's as cold as physically possible and on tap) but this beer surprised me. Had this one in bottle and not on tab (SAD!).

L: MUCH better looking beer as compared to the 60 minute, pours darker and danker.
S: Hoppy and piney, with potentially a hint of tobacco smell mixed into this orangy concoction
T: so drinkable, honestly tastes great. Dangerous because of it's lack of kick. I for one prefer a dirty, hoppy IPA or a juicy NEIPA but this is a great tasting beer.
F: Too light tasting for 9%, this would almost be jungle juice of doubles.
O: 4.069, would recommend but not a world beater by any means.

This beer pours a slightly cloudy amber with a large head. The aroma is dense and dank, with pine, resin, cannabis, mango, tobacco, and grass. The flavor starts with rich sweet malt, leading or orange peel, sweet pine, cannabis, caramel, and a woodsy spice flavor. The mouthfeel is fairly full with bright but creamy carbonation. Overall this is a pretty tasty beer - not exciting, but tasty and dangerously drinkable.

Dogfish Head taste test: 60 Minute IPA vs 90 Minute IPA
The 90 Minute is slightly darker and has a creamier foamier head. The 60 minute is milder, the 90 minute sharper. 60 minute = 6% alc. 90 minute = 9% alc. By the time you finish them both, the taste test really doesn't matter so much.

90 Minute IPA is my favorite IPA, so far.
