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.

Had my first taste of this today and was pleasantly surprised as I had found the 60 minute IPA to be unpalatable. I tasted this one back to back with several other IPA's and found it to be the best of the bunch.

Color was a deep gold, almost and amber, with a quarter inch of head on top.

Aroma - Compared to the 60 minute and the Brooklyn IPA I was tasting this one smelled more grainy, bready, sweeter, with a subtle hop note.

Taste - Wow! The powerful malt flavor is a good counterweight to the substantial hoppiness. The two combine to produce a single balanced flavor. Reminds me a bit of Magic Hat.

Mouthfeel - more bubbly than the other IPA's in the tasting which was good, the alcohol is noticeable at 9%.

I would give this a 5.0 as it is my current favorite IPA, but until tasting every IPA on earth I'm not comfortable giving a 5.0

Not a chugging beer. This one has a substantial amount of flavor (and alcohol) and would be best enjoyed at a slow pace. If you haven't already, go taste this!
