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

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 (7644) - 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.

Copper color with a thin white head. Very good aroma of floral hops and caramel. Amazing flavor of floral, spicy hops and carame, the ABV is pretty well hidden. Strong bitter finish. Light to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. This beer is simply amazing.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2005 Iím normally not a big fan of IPA, but this one is pretty good-- not spectacular, but it will do. A little steep in the pricing department (over $9 for 4 bottles) and I canít say it was worth the cost, but Iíd rather buy four for that price at a store than spend that much on 1.5 bottles at a bar. I am curious to find out what this one tastes like on tap.

Amber colored liquid. Has a strong aroma with a very sweet taste. I did not care for this beer at all.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 15, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2005 Pours gold mahogany with a creamy ivory head that settles fairly quickly. Aroma is wonderfully fragrant, complex and strong. Floral, apricot, leather, pine and lots of other things going on I canít quite put a name to. Taste is huge and mouth-filling, but still a well-balanced play between malt and hops. Though as the glass progresses, the hops win out. The 9% ABV hides pretty well, but provides a nice warming sensation.

This is a hop-loverís beer! Heavy hops aftertaste is amazing. Kept looking for the sediment as I poured it but it never came. Only down side to this beer but flavor is incredible.

Deep golden hue with a decent creamy off white head. Strong citrus nose with a twist of orange. Brutal hoppy taste. This beer is crammed full of hoppy flavour with citrus, flora and hints of caramel. The after taste is long and intensleybitter. This is the full on hop experience for IPA lovers. Fantastic! It is hard to describe the great flavours that this beer holds due to its glorious complexity.
