90 Minute IPA by Dogfish Head is a 9%AV Double Imperial IPA. This is the second time I this special ale, so I realize it deserves another round of attention.
is an Imperial India Pale Ale featuring a single constant 90-minute hop addition. It’s balanced by ridiculous amount of English Two-row Barley. Then we dry-hop it in every tank
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.
An IPA with some awesome proportions. Smells of Barley and honey. Lots of it. First sip gives off right away, citrus, tangerine sweetness, orange gummy bears, honey, pink grapefruit, biscuit and barley bread like a piece of toast with butter, cinnamon and grape jelly, some grassy and pine hops that don’t really provide bitterness as much as it adds to the sweet floral hop flavor. This is a strong beer but it is very smooth and gives way to what an IPA would be like with minor bitterness. It is pretty damn awesome and if you love IPAs or not, you will find this one to be quite the delicious one 😛
What we have is a a level down version of the previous awesome 120 minute IPA I had before. The 90 Minute IPA by Dogfish head brings to the table an awesome balance of hoppy flavors with sweet hop goodness. Made with hops, English two-row barley and malts. A concoction of 9%ABV. The balance is just right as the 120 was more sweeter like honey and alcohol that hit ya good. This is more like a balance
e and more enjoyable one so you can have multiple of. A really great beer from its sweet start to bitter finish. Flavors of Citrus, caramel and piney hops are all in there. Definitely a beer not to be missed out on. The best part is that the alcohol is not felt in the taste. It takes the back door and slowly hits ya all at once…crap..it hit as I am writing this. D:!!!…..CHEERS regardless ;P
