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.

12 oz bottle with a bottling date of 12-2-11

A-Poured into a snifter leaving a one inch cream colored head composed of dense bubbles. Clear golden to slightly amber color. After two minutes the head reduced down to a thin cap that still coated the sides of the glass.

S- Nose is mild citrusy hops and malty vanilla/banana tones with the alcohol coming through in the finish.

T- Big malt up front balanced by more of a citrus hop tartness rather than what I would call bitterness. The alcohol comes through about mid way. Carmel and vanilla notes in the malt.

M- Medium, velvety body, carbonation is lively but not fizzy.

What you have here is an excellent beer. I really enjoy the malt hops balance. If something is called "imperial" I want it to have a bolder and richer taste than a standard IPA. This one fits the description.

Poured from bottle into snifter

A- Beautiful cloudy apricot pour that settled down into a nice clear amber color with a fluffy off- white head. The head steadily lowered into a thin bubbly ring around my glass with a swirly remnant on the surface. Nice legs that leave some small bubbles trailing down the glass.

S- Let this one warm up just a bit and it releases a magical smell of sweet floral hops that seem to be dipped in sugar and drizzled with caramel. The smell is very rich and pleasent but not too intense.

T- This is a very well balanced DIPA. The hop profile is there and it's tasty, but it is not bitter or offensive. Even those who shy from hoppy beers should give this a try. It's malty and sweet. Very much like a fresh American barley wine. This is delicious!

M- Nice, thick, full bodied, not syrupy but there is definitely some substance. Many in this style are quite thin, which can be nice too, but the mouthfeel on this matches well with this well balanced brew.

O- I remember buying this for the first time five years ago. I loved it! It was the first imperial IPA I ever had and surely in the top five BEST I have ever had. I love it because it's available year round and can be found just about anywhere. This beer looks great, it's fragrant, tasty, well balanced and has a great mouthfeel. DFH nails each category here with this one. I'm glad I finally reviewed this as sometimes when I drink this it tastes really really good and tonight is one of those times. If you haven't tried this yet, then you shouldn't even be on this site. Get out there and pick up a four pack right this minute!
