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.

Here's the next level IPA that Dogfish Head offers after the 60 minute IPA, although this brew predates the 60 & 120 versions in production. This beer has been voted "Best Beer In America" three different years.

The beer pours with a thick creamy off-white head. It's one of those heads that you can stick your finger in, and the hole stays there...
The color is a very clear golden orange, with a steady stream of tiny bubbles that stream up from the bottom/center of the glass.

The smell is intense. You definitely get your hops, but there are also strong aromas of grapefruit and pine. Behind that, you also get a nose of toasty malt, something I'm not used to smelling in most IPAs.

The taste certainly follows the nose, big grapefruit and pine flavors. Also with this brew, there is an excellent balance to the hops, so you get some malty flavors as well as some honey.

This 90 minute has a great presence in your mouth. There is a heaviness to this brew that just coats your entire mouth in the multiple flavors going on. Not a lot of carbonation, just the swirling of the flavors. You can also feel the fact that this beer is a 9%...

What a beer! There are so many flavors and smells going on here, a truly great IPA.
