Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

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.

Poured in to a pint glass pours very orange color with a fine bubble head almost velvet in quality.
Smell is pretty average mostly citrus and pine grapefruit notes.
Taste is resin up front onto usual notes of pine and juicy citrus with a mellow subtle sweet biscuit finish.
Taste is perfect carbonation in my option and also slick on the tounge leave my mouth very juicy after a sip.
Overall an amazing IPA without a doubt I feel like it's a true IPA as well well hopped with perfect malty balance but that being said I am more of a fan of the west coast IPA's was just expecting a little more hops bitterness.

Bottled 3/7/18, consumed 4/3/18

Poured crystal clear dark amber with a nice inch head that left a little bit of lacing.

Aroma is caramel malty up front, earthy & piney hops, some citrus fruit at the end. Definitely a changeup from the fruity/piney/danky aroma profile of West Coast IPAs & DIPAs I'm used to.

Taste is earthy, malty & piney like the aroma. The fruit honestly taste more like dark fruit here than citrus. It is a nice mix, but very different from most IPAs and DIPAs out.

Mouthfeel is where this brew shines, very balanced all around, booze well contained, solid bitterness, clean & dry finish.

Overall, a very well-crafted DIPA that's really not about the fruitiness, which is just different from pretty much the rest of the market. If you're a WC dank, pine, fruity IPA lover or a soft, pillowy NEIPA lover - Hold Up! This is way different. Unique and stands apart, just not what I'm going for.

Burnt orange brew producing small white head, wonderful lacing. Crystal clear and quiet.

Smells of fresh cut grass, pear, with alcohol evident.

Strong malt breadiness gives way to sweet caramel, some light fruit and pepper spice and alcohol burn. Long hoppy finish. Real clean and crisp and a template for a robust DIPA.

Appreciate a straightforward IPA to sip that isn't a big juice bomb. Hearty, crisp, and well crafted.
