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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

appearance: gorgeous clear honey. Just off white head with nice messy lacing.
smell: robust malt foundation. Grapefruit hops. Like fresh bread with citrus.
taste: Just wonderful. Despite the 9% and loads of hops actually manages to be "delicate". like a candy treat with a hoppy edge that keeps it from being too sweet.
overall: One of my all time favorites. This one of the beers that lured me into beer again, an intro to the new wave of beer masters.

Bottled on 12/27/11.

The beer goes into the goblet and comes out clear mahagony-copper with a fizzy head that settles into a sparse and patchy covering. Some retention but not nearly as much as a 60 Minute leaves,

The scent is pretty heavy on the malt, heavy on the hop resin. Big sweet whiffs of orange/grapefruit juice carton; molasses is there; it ends with some alcohol.

I taste that barley and those think hops immediately; the aftertaste shines – it’s a resurgence of crisp IPA deliciousness that follows a thick and strong initial draw.

Mouthfeel is viscous and sweet with a crisp bite from both lively effervescence and bitter hops. Smooth.

This is beer is great, I was expecting something good from these guys and there weren’t any surprises here. A solid option that would pair well with all kinds of food.
