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.

12 oz bottle in a pint glass. Dated 11/17/11.

A: nice golden orange with good clarity. One finger of white head dissipates slowly with lingering lacing.

S: This is the freshest 90 min I've had, and the nose is definitely a bit different: not as hop-forward as I previously remember it, but it definitely there on top of a sweet malty background. There are also some mildly floral tones present.

T: again a bit maltier than I remember, including some brown sugar and an almost-coffee-like bitterness in the finish. The hops are primarily at the beginning and are pining.

M: pretty smooth, small carbonation but not unreasonable. Slightly boozy but not overly so considering the 9% abv stat.

O: a very good IPA, one of my favorites and highly recommended. I know you're not technically supposed to age IPAs but I this one is slightly better with a few months behind it.

A – Dense apricot body with a pure white head. Nice retention and lace.

S – Clementine, marmalade, pear and bread. Not overly complex, but what’s there is fantastic.

T – Soft apricot and Clementine up front into a slow escalation of citrusy and woody hops – an effect that quickens the deeper you get into the glass. Green, bitter, floral finish is semi-sweet with a light warming booze.

M – Medium body with a great lingering, green hop bitterness.

O – Bright with a well balanced, aggressive hop character. Delicious.

A: Pours a copper color with a nice dense head and excellent lacing.

S: Sweet, sugary aroma with citrus hops (grapefruit) and pineapple.

T: Sweet barley/ caramel malt followed by a moderate wave of citrus and pine from the hops. Slight touch of alcohol followed by a balanced finish and aftertaste. This isn't nearly as hoppy as I expected.

M: Medium body with moderate carbonation, almost syrupy.

Overall: This isn't what I expected.... Not as hoppy as I would have liked but it's still good.
