Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States

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.

Reviewed on IPA day!

A- clear golden-amber color with a foamy and sticky white head that retains long after the pour, good ring of lace.

S- bright citrus and pine hops, booze, herbal, apricot, bready yeasty malts.

T- big hops kick to the mouth right off, citrus, pine, herbal, hop oils. Orange peel and sweet melon, followed by a bready, cake-like malt that provides a solid backbone. The booze is definitely noticable but is warming and not overbearing. Finishes somewhat dry with a nice hops linger.

M- medium-heavy bodied with medium carbonation. Thick and silky palate and goes down smooth.

O- a perfect example of an Imperial IPA. Hops dominate the palate, but the sweet bready malts compliments so well and creates a great balance. A solid beer.

In honor of IPA day...

Poured into a brandy snifter glass. Very nice creamy head that sits atop a golden brown body. Great lacing on the side of the glass, looks absolutely delectable.

Smells very malty, more so than your traditional IPA. A sweet caramel smell hits the nose balanced nicely by the floral hop aroma.

Tastes a perfect blend of maltiness and hoppiness; roasty, bready with a nice touch of earthiness and bitterness from the hops.

Bubbly and warm going down with a semi-dry finish.

Nice beer.
