Esquire Magazine calls our 90 Minute I.I.PA., "perhaps the best I.P.A. in America." An Imperial I.P.A. brewed to be savored from a snifter. A big beer with a great malt backbone that stands up to the extreme hopping rate. This beer is an excellent candidate for use with Randall The Enamel Animal! 90 ibu

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2007 On draft at Issac Newtonís. Pours amber with small compact off-white head. Aroma of pine hops, citrus, sweet malts. Flavor is exceptionally smooth, citrus, sweet up-front, carbonation with a mildly bitter finish, with an after taste of slight orange. Good healthy body, Great brew.

Bottle. With the immense hop presence, I was extremely surprised by the continual balance of sweet candy-like malt presence. It just doesnít seem like anything else should squeeze through, but a lot of malt presence is there. Wonderful aroma of flowery citrus. A little sticky, but also very dry. Good head, and gorgeous golden body, but I was dissapointed by the lack of lacing. A world-class beer which has earned my admiration.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2007 The hops are amazing, the aromatic hops are more impressive than the bittering hops. A really great effort. all the hopiness makes you forget it 9%.

Whoa! This is a wonderful beer. It is an incredibly drinkable and remarkably tasty IPA from Dogfish Head. It is a clear dark orange color and when it is poured into a glass the wave of carbonation seems to almost hit the bottom of the glass before settling on top. Flavor is mostly of hoppy grapefruit but balanced out nice with a barleywine-esque sweetness. This beer goes down smooth and easy so if youíve drank a few while sitting be careful when you stand up because that 9% definatly hits you in the right places.

blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2006
Bottle courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a cloudy bubbly amber with an average size diminishing foamy white head. Aroma is a nicely balanced blend of floral hops and malt -- simple but downright pleasant. The flavourís a touch watery and not as hoppy as I thought it would be but itís nicely balanced and very tasty. The alcohol is noticeable but not too bad for a 9% beer. Full bodied. This isnít as good as the 120 Minute but still a damn fine beer.

This is my favorite drinking beer. When I just want to sit, not think about it, know that it will be just what I want, Dogfish 90 min is it for me. That is all.

If you are a true hop-head, than this is the Mecca of beers for you. This poured a golden amber range color with a slight head that relaxed into good lacing. The nose is an absolute punch in the face of hops, hops, nutty malts, hops and hops. THe taste is a bitter roll of hops searing the tongue. Itís absolute heaven in a bottle. Iíve been a hop head for a while, this is my flagship.

A clear, orangish color, with small-mid amount of head. Very enticing look. A surprising mix of flavor, with hardly any notice of alcohol. Well balanced and enjoyable to drink.

12 oz bottle. Clear copper colored with a perky peach head. Musty orange and grapefruit. Sweet and piney into candied orange peel finishing with juicy grapefruit. A creamy medium body without the sharp hop and alcohol edges. A smooth easy-drinking blend of bold flavors.
