Dominated by citrus, a stale floral aroma, some dark bread, grass and herbs.

If Godzilla was a DIPA he would be this DIPA. He would bring his cinnamon coloured, potently thick but muscular body to your town and smash it. Might even thrust his frothy, spikey white head into your office and destroy you. 90 Minutes is great and has it all. Citrus, dank, floral, sweet, bread. All of it, for you to guzzle down, all nine freaking percent of it, to become a monster yourself. Someday DFH will crush all the Macros. Then DFH will BE the Macro, but it will be a sweet Macro. Macro.

Bitter sweet hoppy goodness. Pours clear with a low white head. Plenty of aroma. Sweet and chewy followed by the hop punch. Awesome.

From a small sample at a tasting. Probably not super fresh. Orange amber, not much head. Bit of tropical fruit, but much more malt than hop really. Tasty, bitter and sweet. Nice and full. Like to try it fresher.

Dogfish Head 90 Minute Imperial IPA has a place in classic craft IPA hall or fame. Nice amber pour with a tight frothy head. Taste is well-balanced with pine and floral hop notes -- some moderate complexity. Finish is clean and fresh. 90 Minute IPA is a solid brew in a style that has lots of competition these days.

Bottle. This beer was great. A perfect amount of molasses and caramel flavour meets the perfect amount of hops. I never really noticed much alcohol taste, all of it hidden behind the raisin bread. A really smooth mouth feel too and almost too easy to drink. My first Dogfish brew, and what a choice it was.

Transfer from BA reviewed on 1-26-12 - Poured from bottle into tulip shaped glass Appearance - A beautiful golden color with a small head upon pouring. The head fades not leaving much lacing. Smell - A wonderfully sweet tropical fruit smell first meets the nose. Very unexpected but very pleasant. This then mixes beautifully with a piney and floral hop aroma. Very nice. Taste - At first sweet malt and tropical fruit taste mixed with a mild floral hop flavor. The sweeter malt remains in flavor, but is soon overwhelmed by the hops which really step up their show, intensifying quite a bit with a burst of mostly piney and citrusy hop flavor. Mouthfeel - A good body but a little on the think side actually. It is very drinkable however as itís carbonation is spot on. The thinner body make this 9% a little too easy to drink (good and bad at the same time). Overall - A very nice IPA it truly is. In my opinion a little over-hyped, but only a little. Definitely a good brew.

This poured one of the prettiest beers Iíve ever seen. Dark golden amber with a soft white head that lasted quite a long while. The aroma was less hoppy and more malty than I would have liked, and that malt definitely punched itís way through on my overall happiness with the beer. The palate was sticky and almost syrupy, and less bitter than other reviewers seem to find it. This should be ice cold when poured, unless you really enjoy a sweet malty backbone, because it definitely has that to the end!

cagou007 (315) - FRANCE - MAY 15, 2014
Pours a deep golden-orange color with a medium white head. Nose is surprisingly discrete. In mouth it's a blast of flavors: full body and medium carbonation, malty aromas of caramel and molasse, hoppy aromas if citrus and resinous pine. Perfectly balanced, not too dry like many other IPA. Long bitter and piney finish. An outstanding Imperial IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
