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.

This is a flavorful complex beer without overwhelming you with the taste of "overhopping" or alcohol, despite its 9 percent ABV. Dark Amber in color. One of my favorites! $9.95 for 4 12 ounce bottles may put off some. Don't let this turn off you. Try it, and you will likely have a new favorite.

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

Appearance: Beautiful amber color. The color is what I picture when I think of a good IPA. Small head but great lacing.

Smell: Not especially aromatic but it smells delicious. The hops smell very fresh and mostly citrus. Little to no hint of pine.

Taste: Excellent taste. Great hops flavor is balanced very well. Although the beer did not smell of pine it certainly carries some pine flavor. Has a slightly similar flavor to some quality stouts on the back on the tongue. Very interesting.

Mouthfeel: Just the right amount of carbonation. Solid body without feeling too thick. Good finish.

Overall: An amazing beer that sets a great example of what an IPA should strive to be. Absolutely delicious. Also just noticed that it is 9%. Wouldn't have even guessed since the alcohol is hidden so well.

Copper beer with a sudsy head and lots of carbonation. Has aromas of sweet citrus, light spices and caramel; some breadiness too. Flavors of tangy, spicy citrus and sweet bread. Body is thick and creamy but doesn't feel too syrupy. This is a great beer to sip on a cold January afternoon.

A- Copper Appearance, about a finger of head with nice retention, nice lacing around the sides of the glass. Slightly below average carbonation

S- Not too aromatic. Slight citrusy/malty smell is apparent.

T- One of the sweeter IPAs that I've had, definitely tastes sweeter then you would assume from the smell. Very good balance throughout the beer- sweet slightly citrusy taste, tiny bit piney, hops definitely present. 9% alcohol content is hard to determine from taste.

M- Very smooth and drinkable. Definitely heavier then your average beer, but not the heaviest I've had. Light Carbonation.

O- I'm a big fan of Dogfish IPAs. I highly recommend the 90 minute, and it is definitely one of my favorite DIPAs.
