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.

A- ohhh wow. Yeah this is a pretty 2x ipa. It has a deep, clean orange body and tight white head that last for 2 minutes or so then makes its way to the edge of the glass. TONS of lacing!

S- definitely some pungent hop aroma going on here. I would guess columbus and simcoe. Slightly astringent smelling, it has some over-ripe lemon and cannabis elements to it. There's a touch ofalcohol in there, but not a lot. This barrel was aged 6 months, or so I was told. Lots going on, but its slightly too chaotic and has a little trouble melding together.

T- nice, powerful flavor right away. Very bitter body with some immediate caramel malt sweetness. The hops take over the middle and end with notes of old pine, sour apple, grapefruit, and a slightly off catty-like flavor. This is often due to the use of simcoe hops and isn't for everyone. I don't mind it much. This has some nice flavors. Could be a little more hop flavored than bitter, imo.

M- medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. It has a very slick, oily mouthfeel likely due to the alcohol and hop resins.

O- this has always been on of my favorite 2x ipa's. While it may not be the most complex, it certainly isn't one dimensional. Slightly over hyped, I think, but still a classic.
