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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a beautiful copper/orange with an off-white one finger head. Excellent retention and beautiful rings of lacing throughout. Moderate amount of bubbles. Beautiful right out of the bottle.

S: Fairly mild but intricate. Fruity and floral with hop oils and a sweet malty undertone.

T: Hops are prevalent up front with pine, citrus, grapefruit, and a nice earthiness. Finishes a bit sweeter with some bready malt. Very little alcohol taste.

M: Smooth with a low-medium level of carbonation. Alcohol feel present, but not so much taste.

O: A great DIPA; very well balanced without losing hop character.

A: This beer looks heavy. It pours slowly, and looks very viscous. It’s a nice copper/orange color. The carbonation appears light. Bubbles from the bottom of the glass are having a tough time getting through the beer to rise to the surface. Impressive. I thought this might be unfiltered, but it’s crystal clear. The head really sticks to the glass well.

S: Musty and resinous hops waft from the glass. Piney with a hint of citrus. Some light sweetness gets through too. I thought this would be more of a bomb, the low carbonation prevents the aroma from overwhelming. The mustiness is a bit detracting actually.

T: Wow. This is quite sweet actually, rich and flavorful. It pours over my tongue like hop flavored syrup. The hop bitterness is light in front and heavy in the back. Taste of more pine and citrus, maybe more orange than grapefruit. Very little alcohol taste… but I can tell it’s there. This is good.

M: Medium mouthfeel. I’m glad it’s not heavy, it doesn’t prevent me from drinking more. The carbonation comes through more in the mouthfeel than I thought it would based on the appearance and aroma. A bit prickly. I wish the carbonation was more muted… natural carbonation might have made the mouthfeel ideal.

O: Not always a huge DFH fan, but they sure know how to make an IPA. Their 60-minute is dynamite too. Next up for me… 120… if I qualify for financial aid, that is.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance is a slightly hazy medium orange with a hefty 2 finger head. Excellent head retention and decent lacing as well.

Aroma is quite hoppy with citrus notes but there is also a solid bready malt base.

The taste is quite a bit maltier than I was expecting from the nose. Quite a bit of caramel and toffee with a slight coffee note. Hop flavors are somewhat buried underneath but are present. A nice bitterness is there to balance out the malty sweetness. Mouthfeel is pretty full and sticky. A slight alcohol presence towards the finish.

This is a top notch brew and one of the best I have had. I will definitely come back to this one again and again.
