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.

A: Pours a deep, glowing orange-amber color. The head is quite tall with bronze highlights and a dense, frothy texture. Retention is admirable, with very attractive lacing.

S: Significant caramel maltiness in the nose is accompanied by a big rush of juicy citrus. Grapefruit juice and orange pith. Even a bit of a peach/pineapple note. A second layer of resiny pine and herbal character lurks around.

T: A big mouthful of malt initially, both pale and caramel, providing substantial sweetness for the style. A rush of citric hop flavors immediately follows. Predominantly grapefruit, with splashes of orange and pineapple at times, along with a nice underlying pinyness. Bitterness is firm but by no means overwhelming. A faint note of alcohol is occasionally detectable.

M: Moderately full-bodied. At times quite sticky, oily, and resiny. A bit dry into the finish. Carbonation is medium-soft. The alcohol provides some flashes of heat.

D: This is a delicious beer no matter how you define the Imperial IPA. For this genre, I don't think it's necessary for every DIPA to be a 100+ IBU facemelter. Sweet, but still aggressively hoppy, allowing an unusual balance for such a big beer.
