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.

A- Nice Copper color with a frothy, suddy, head that dies to a one finger lace around the glass.

S- The smell was noticeable right when the cap came off the bottle. Smells very dank and hoppy. Beer smells super fresh. Hemp, citrusy hops, malty scent! There are undertones of pine as well. Little bit of bready-ness perhaps to the malt? Alcohol is resent at the end of the nose. Very complex nose overall. Smells inviting for sure!

T- Hops hit yeah like a ton of bricks, but with a slightly sweet malty character! VERY BITTER!!!! Resiny and oily as well! It has an overall citrusy hop taste. It doesn't taste like a west-coast IPA. I don't really get tropical fruits like apricots or mango. Seems just like the classic grapefruit IPA flavor here. Just like in the scent, there are undertones of piney hop flavors as well. The alcohol isn't the central flavor here, but there is a slight warming presence to remind you you're drinking a double IPA! The finish coats the back of the mouth with an oily feel, hop resinous feeling before slowly drying out. REAL NICE!!!

M- Body is medium to full to say the least. It leaves a very oily, sticky feel in the mouth. Very juicy! This is not something I could have more than one of during the course of a night since the ABV is this high and palate would just be ruined from anything else I may want to drink. This is quite different than most IPA's I've ever had!!!

This is not the best IPA I've ever had, but it's damn good nontheless. Hits you like ton of bricks and never lets go. If you do not like bitter, hoppy beers, DO NOT EVER TRY THIS!

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip at cellar temperature.

L – Pale amber color with a 2-finger white bubbly head. Really nice retention and lacing. Clear with a great amount of carbonation bubbles for the style.

S – A big sweet caramel and toasty malt presence with a generous helping of hops with mostly floral and pine aromas, along with a nice undercurrent of grapefruit and peach.

T – Starts off sweet with caramel malts, honey, and peach flavors and steadily builds to a bitter crescendo with pine and floral hop notes with a touch of grapefruit. Very well balanced and very tasty.

F – Medium-bodied with good carbonation, a chewy and sticky mouthfeel, and a dry and bitter finish. Both fruity sweetness and floral hop bitterness linger for a great amount of time. A little bit of a throat-warming sensation from the alcohol appears at the finish.

O – This is a terrific DIPA and hands-down my favorite beer from DFH. It’s great across the board, but the thing that impresses me the most is how balanced the beer is between the sweet malt and bitter hops while still being bitter enough to please the biggest hop heads. Extremely drinkable. The fact that it’s widely available and relatively cheap is just icing on the cake. Great beer from DFH.
