0,33 flaske hos Einar, nov-14: vi tok denne etter 90 Minute, og dennehar (om mulig) mer av alt - mer intensitet i farge, aroma og smak. Bortimot en barley wine. Dette er ganglag for sjelen. Helt superb.

Bitter, herbal orange tea with a ginger and butter scotch drop on a pancake. A slight trace of nutmeg. Lingers at the back of the mouth but fades on the tongue. My idea of a winter warmer more so than a DPIA. Perfect with a peppery mustard rubbed rib eye. Oh yeah!

clear orange to amber colour, moderate sized slightly yellowish off-white head;aroma of pine, tropical fruity notes, biscuit (Scottish shortbread), slight citruses, maybe some minimal earthy yeasty notes, hints of floral notes and hones, as well as some caramel; taste of malty-syrupy sweetness, pine, tropical fruits, and biscuit notes; heavy sweetness and at the same time intensive bitterness - marvellous IIPA!

One of my favorite beers. Great mix of malts and hops to create one of the best IPAs in the world. Great aroma and incredible taste.

Draft pour at Logan Arcade into snifter. An intense blend of pungent, resiny, oily hops along with an oh-so-sweet malt profile. Big in flavor and big in mouthfeel - there is a stickiness here that clings to your palate.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fairly clear orange-amber colour with thin white head. Grapefruit upfront on the nose with perhaps some other fruits such as banana and mango too. Kinda grassy and floral. Taste is great. Strong biscuity backbone which combines well with the oily profile and alcohol warmth. More richly sweet than a regular IPA, but the bitterness and carbonation levels balance this one out nicely.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOTTLE 355 ML from CH-303, 6 months old.
Look: clear copper, off-white creamy head.
Aroma: rich dark honey sweetness, the hops are not that intense, but still pleasant: fruity, some resin and fresh hoppy notes. Some alcohol spice.
Taste: very sweet, honey, fruity marmalade, the moderate bitterness fails to balance out the sweetness. Zesty notes in the finish.

Among the finest American Imperial IPAs, and, perhaps the best one that is widely available (depending on how one defines that). Maltier and stickier than the usual "west coast style" that dominates this category (e.g., Green Flash, Stone, Russian River). I personally prefer the drier WC style but 90 minute just works, undeniably. Piney hops and caramel sweetness on the nose. Orange amber with a hint of red in appearance. In taste, a first sharp wave of hops, followed by a sweet, sticky, candied apple center, finished with a clean rush of more hops. A delicious treat to be savored at 9% abv. A classic, defining the maltier end of this style.
