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.

Appearance: Dark straw/copper color with a soapy off-white head. Pretty much the same as their 60 Minute. Nice carbonation bubbles floating upwards.

Aroma: Lots of caramel malt and some bready notes with a piney hop presence. Not quite as aromatic as I expected but still smells great.

Taste: From beginning to end you get a great bitter hop bite. It's slightly spicy and piney with a dash of sweet hop flavor that impacts a real nice bitterness. Evenly matched with all those hops is a solid malt body. Caramel, bread, and some hints of roasted malt create a perfect structure for the hops to stand on. The 9% abv is so well hidden it has to be tasted to be believed. There is a slight warmth in the throat but that just adds to the enjoyment.

Mouthfeel: Damn near perfect. Medium bodied and drinkable. Very smooth with a nice level of effervescence.

Final Thoughts: If I could get DFH where I lived then this one would always be in my fridge. It would probably pair really well with most meaty dishes and works really well on it's own. Can't wait to get my hands on this one again!

A - Pours a sunset amber with half a finger of creamy white head and streaky lacing.

S - Pungent hops, blood orange and bitter peel, caramel malts, barley and some booze.

T - Sweet then bitter. Orange, tangerine and mandarin make way for pine and strawberry, then finally the malt base. Nicely development and balance on the palate.

M - Full bodied and creamy, low carbonation.

O - Extraordinarily drinkable for a 9% abv brew. Nice big fresh juicy US IPA.
