Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA Beer Review

Article by Fister Roboto of lefthandhorror.com

Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

$9.99/Four Pack

ABV: 9%

Serve at 45-50 degrees

Enjoyed from a DFH Signature Glass

A: Amber/orange color. Pours a huge white head with sticky lacing.

S: Sweet and a little floral. The sweet malts are present before the floral hops. Very surprising for the style. The sweet definitely dominates the hops.

T: Very sweet with notes of pineapple and citrus. There’s a definite honey sweetness in the finish. This DIPA has such a complex and delicious taste that it still succeeds in spite of the lack of smack-you-in-face hops. The flavor gets bolder as it warms, leaving a nice little alcohol burn on the way down. I’m somehow able to drink three of these and achieve the perfect buzz. Similar styles would lay me out. This beer is bad ass.

M: Dry. Thick bodied with nice carbonation.

O: This is my favorite DFH entry. 60 Minute is too mild, and 120 is like drinking grapefruit syrup; 90 Minute is calling the shots. This brew takes a primary characteristic, the hoppiness of an DIPA, and puts in the background, relying on the toffe-malt sweetness to lure you in. Great balance and still always on my local Liquor Barn’s shelf.
