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.

Pouring a copper color with a slight white head, 90 Minute gives an immediate hoppy aroma with hints of citrus. When the certain tang of hoppiness attacks the tongue, a drinker is generally in for a good IPA. The initial taste begins mild, but evolves into an assault of varying degrees of hops. Tastes of orange, lemon, and cinnamon dance across the tongue before melting into a warming citrus aftertaste. The mouthfeel is smooth, though I sometimes feel the carbonation is moderately high.

While Dogfish Head no longer delivers to Indiana, it is worth the drive to Illinois or Michigan to get my fix of DFH. Though some prefer 60 minute IPA, I would suggest that there a few better IPA's available in wide distribution that are better.

Pretty creamy white head with good lacing. Beer pours a ruddy color with some deep yellow golden straw around the edges and a ruddy orange hue when held up to the light.

Nose is mostly bitter citrusy hops laid over a caramel malt backbone.

Taste...mmm so yummy. First time I had this beer was about 4 years ago and it consistently remains one of my favorite ipas. Nice bright and bitter hop attack up front that lingers as the maltiness of the beer comes through. Finish is lingering hop bitterness with some piney notes.

Mouthfeel: solid with a nice carbonation that stands up well to how intense this beer is.

Overall I love this beer, I think my familiarity with it is making it difficult to distinguish some of its greater nuances, but it's just as awesome as it was years ago.

Have had on-tap and in bottles many times. First had when I was not even legal drinking age. Pours a lovely dark golden color with a red hue on the peripheral. Small off-white head that fizzles away quickly. Ring of bubbles stays, but not much in terms of lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, grass and light spices. Tastes of citrus, earthy hops, resinous pine and a slight bit of sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium in body with a dry finish and bitter profile. Lingers on the palate. Moderate carbonation. I am sure I will have this many more times!
