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.

Very hoppy but also lots of maltiness so its pretty balanced. Lots of smoky flavor and the typical bitterness of an IPA. Not my favorite type of beer but for the price and abv its a great value.

Excellent IPA - amazing that it’s a double and not just a standard one since the alcohol is so well-hidden despite the high ABV. Nice amber color with just a little head and minimal lingering lacing. Smells great, nice fruity hops. Tastes of citrus and floral hops, caramel, grain and a great malt backbone. Very little bitterness. The hops flavor was definitely a little understated - that could be both a good and bad thing. Nice and smooth, goes down easy and mild mouthfeel. Just the right amount of carbonation. Very well done - will have to try this brewery’s other IPAs.

Dogfish Head has made an incredible Imperial IPA. Wonderful balance of malt and hops and a great citrus backbone to it. I had to slow myself down while drinking this one. The feel is seemingly tailored to my exact preference and the taste is complex enough to make it stand out from the rest of the IPAs that I have tried. Do yourself a favor a try this beer! You will, most likely, not be disappointed. Ha, ha. Cheers!

A - Amber. Very easy to see through. Very little head with not a lot of lacing.

S - A tiny bit of hops with a decent amount of malt and booze. A little nutty.

T - Does not taste like an IPA. Very malty and nutty and boozy. A tiny bit of hops.

F - Very smooth. Goes down quite easy.

O - Very drinkable. Doesn't taste much like an IPA since there is not a lot of hops in the smell or taste. For 9%, it is not that boozy. You can still taste it, but it's not overpowering. Very malty for an IPA.

One of the best IPAs out there great taste, looks amazing in a glass but tastes best out of a nice cold bottle. I love hops in a good beer and 90 minute ipa does not disappoint.

I believe this is the best ipa in America. Pleasantly in between the 60 minute and 90 minute, it adds mor3 bitterness than the 60 minute with the experience of the 120 without the hangover regrets (usually). It has the best aroma Imo. The owner of DFH designed his ipas in a very grass roots way. He used a converted vibrating football game popular from the 1950s, and used it’s vibrating action to add hops over time to his beer. While this may sound strange, it’s this approach to experimentation that was the basis for Sams small batch microbrewery. My feeling is that this experimental approach is so engrained in its culture, that it will continue to turn out awesome beers for a very long time that break new ground. While they have amaging ipas of many types, my favorite is the 90 minute. It’s a bit more expensive than 60 minute, and hard to find, but if you see it, buy it. Enjoy!
