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.

From a bottle to a pilsner glass is a crystal clear, coppper/amber beautiful beer with a bright white head & moderate carbonation. Great lookig beer. Aroma of citrus & some malt. Taste that stands out is the citrus, in particular grapefruit, with a nice balance of bitterness followed by some maltiness. Medium bodied, decently carbonated this beer finishes clean, smooth & strong. Not my favorite style of beer but I really enjoyed this one. Very easy & enjoyable.

About time to try this famous american ipa. Smooth pour, clear dark orange with a creamy, one finger head that dissipates into bubbly islands. Smell is bitter pungency of hops up front, backed by sweet malt and citrus. Not too powerful of an aroma but well rounded. First taste: gentle explosion of hoppy bitterness with some lingering grapefruity sourness. Generously carbonated feel. Perfect balance of smooth and crispy. Goes down like nothing. Overall: extremely drinkable and undeniably a quality brew

Sunny and 64 on boxing day so why not pop open one of my Christmas gifts! Pours a brilliant crystal clear orange into my chalice and emits an almost orgasmic hoppy malt citrusy piney gush of olfactory assault. Tastes slightly syrupy nectary blend of malts and hops with accents of brown sugar and grapefruit. Mouthfeel is oh so smooth like nectar of the gods coating your throat on the way down. One of my favorite of the DFH lineup and overall my favorite of the East Coast IPA variety. Cheers.

12 oz bottle poured into a dogfish head pint glass

Appearance... Filtered crystal clear. Nice light amber color with orange and pink hues. Pours with about a quarter to half inch of white head, which lingers around the rim. Very little visible rising carbonation in the glass.

Smells... Fruity. Moderate and pleasant hop presence in the back. Oakey or woody aroma.

Tastes... Grapefruit. Woody or oak flavor. Malty. Moderate bitterness at the finish, which lingers in the mouth for a few seconds.

Mouthfeel... Good density. Well balanced texture. Light sting on the tongue from the alcohol.

Overall, it's a very enjoyable IPA. There is plenty of hops for the folks who like their IPAs very hoppy. The most interesting and great aspect of this beer is how they've woven the other flavors into the traditional IPA style.
