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

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2005 Hazy orange with a good sized white head. Aroma is citrus with some sweet pineaaple undertones. Smooth, creamy feel. Flavor is very well balanced and relatively complex. Hops definitely take center stage, but unlike some IPAs, the hoppiness does not completely overpower the malt. There is a lot going on in this beer.

My second review, this time from a 12 oz. bottle, the previous from a 750ml, ah, but I was so much older, then, Iím younger than that now... Gorgeous peachy color, big, fresh, full head of bone-white foam. Aroma: BAM! Whoppity-snappityBAM!BOOM!BAM!, thatís the full force of the pine up in there, the intense grapefruit, all the citric flavor that embarks on the senses and nevers flags for a second, grassy, herbal, potent, totally hoppy, sprucey, piney, pineappley, so much going on in this nose! But, to taste...Ah! A wonderful mess here, a big, mix of hops and citric fruity flavor, the punchy pine on the palate, yum, yum, yum. If youíre not sufficiently infatuated with humulous lupus, sit this one out, by all means. A big, sticky, fruity, citric mouthfeel, and, yeah, thereís grapefruit, but so much more. Like licking a forest floor, at times, this one, if I may be so bold. Yeah, but if itís hops you want, lean back and enjoy this onslaught, itís astonishingly tasty! Love it, love it, love it!

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 Pours a light peach. The head is well developed and thick and leaves a nice coat of lace around my la chouffe tulip. Nose is spicy. Pine, oily hops and flowers all around in the nose. Not bad. Many juicy hop tones. The malt is very subdued, providing some body and a backbone but not much flavor. The hops bring tons of grapefruit accompanied by orange and lemon. The alcohol is warming but doesnít produce any flavor at all. Very bitter and quite dry but still very smooth. Delicious DIPA.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Poured a dark amber with small head. Aroma is big and hoppy floral, citrus, and some sweetness. Flavor gets balanced by the malt sweetness but still is very big in the hops in both the bitterness as well as the hop citrus and fruitiness. Medium and smooth body.

jzzbassman (1514) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - SEP 24, 2004
Poured a nice amber with a white compact head and nice lacing. Huge hop aroma with floral and citrus and alfalfa notes. The flavor was accentuated by a perfect palate, almost creamy in texture. Hops are most prevailant in the flavor, but the maltiness complimented it well. Outstanding!!

I love the flavor of this beer just as i love the flavor of most Dogfish Headís brews. It has a woody and hoppy flavor with an amber color. The tast of alcohol is present as well. This as well as a large majority of Dogfish Head beers are hard to find in Indiana. Too bad.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Deep amber, dense offwhite head. Aroma of citrusy hops, dried fruit, alcohol. Very woody flavor; toasty, fruity, bitter. None of the ganja notes that I get from the 60 Minute. Medium to full body. Very tasty indeed, but then Iíve been known to chew hop pellets. Sometime soon I need to get my hands on a bottle of the 120 Minute...

bb (6851) - Alamo, California, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Bottle. Rich amber color with a decent off-white head. Big fruity hop aroma. But the taste is malt - a rich caramel flavor with sweet malt, some pine tar bitterness, raisin and prune. Well balanced - not what I typically want in a double IPA. Itís just not as bitter as I thought itíd be. Slight alcohol warming. A double IPA for the non-hop-heads.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2005 Good carbonation and head, leaves a good lace. Pours a clear yellow/orange. Fruity hop aroma. Starts as slightly sweet then the hops kick in but it is a really good balance of malt and hops. Clearly an above average IPA nearly as good as a McEwanís IPA. $2.25 for a 12oz bottle from Northend Superette Manchester, NH.
