Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States

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.

By far the best IPA ever. All the others are imposters.

Imo is the best IPA in the wold. Pour it in a brandy snifter or my favorite in a 16oz beer gobble. Taste and feels amazing, never had anything better and I've been drinking beer since I'm 13. Now I'm 38 and I've had hundreds of different ipas. Dog fish had 90 minute imperial ale is hands down the best craft beer. FOR a session beer I go with yuengling lager.

This beer is my favorite IPA. It was my introduction to IPAs when I got into beers in '06, back when it wasn't in grocery stores and I had to scrounge out of the way to a specialty store.

I've had countless IPAs since, and it still tastes like the ultimate ambrosia of the gods to me even after all these years. There's no other IPA like it. 90 forever!

In a tasting of 24 IPAs, the Dogfish Head 90 Minute was my hands down favorite, mainly because of its balance and malty character. That's not to say that it's not hops forward- it definitely is- but the malt cuts the bitterness with a bready sweetness that I really liked.

In the overall tasting, I realized I am definitely partial to less hoppy IPAs with lower alcohol contents. A friend I was tasting with had the opposite preference; lots of hops and high alcohol. Yet at the end of the day, we both chose Dogfish 90 Minute IPA as our favorite of the group (all of which are listed below), which I think speaks to the beer's versatility and overall appeal.
