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.

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!

Poured an amber color with a thin white head.

Smell of sweet malts and citrus hops, plenty of grapefruit, lemons very strong.

The taste is quite sweet balanced with the bitterness of the hops. Tastes quite bready. Also has a bit of an alcohol sweetness but not in a bad way.

Feels quite syrupy on the tongue with a low but prickly carbonation.

Overall a really good ipa one of my favourites.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a pint glass from a bottle dated 12/15/11.

A: filtered light Amber color, minimal frothy offwhite head. Bits of lacing.

S: very nutty, sweet bready malt. No hops at all in the nose.

T: sweet malty taste, very nutty, biscuity. Mild hop bitterness towards the finish. Grassy, light citrus and crisp in the finish. Hardly any hop.

M: light-medium mouthfeel, crisp finish. Pretty smooth all in all.

O: I've had this beer about 10 times now, and every time I hate it. I want to like this beer because everyone seems to love it, but it always tastes like a malty mess. I would like to try this like 5 days fresh to see if the hops are evident there, but so far, no good.
