UPDATED: AUG 11, 2007 I am eager to find the beer that will take the 90 minute off of my top favorite spot. The intense front hop is amazingly balanced by the full malt backbone that comes up from underneath with a lasting finish. This beer does not have a strong hop finish, but rather leaves the palate with a residual raisiny sweetness. Big mouthfeel makes this brew a perfect winter complement.

On tap. Delicious aroma. The hops instantly hits the senses. pours a darker amber almost orange hue. Taste is extremely overpowering, but in a good way. Definitely a beer made for sipping.

Pours with a very, very light syrup like consistency. Color is Golden and clear with a bit of orange color. Aroma is fruity with citrus and lots of malt. Taste is sweet with plenty of hop bitterness to balance things out. Somewhat of a lingering bitterness. Excellent brew!

Smelt a lot like grains like when I brew my own. Wonderful smell. All around wonderful beer.

Great aroma. Great flavor and very little after taste. Also a staggering 9.0 ABV packs a mighty wallop.

My first sip was something magical. It was like kissing a girl for the first time. Sensations raced through my veins, and like Remy in Ratatouille describes it, "flavors exploded in my mouth". A parade of tastes marching on my tongue. Pairs very well with dishes with garlic and strong flavors. I’m going to attempt pairing this with Kalbi (Korean BBQ). Charcuterie would also work well I think.

Buddahchild (28) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Aroma of candied/caramel fruit, lots of hoppy floral aromas, and sweet malts. Light stable head, pours dark birght amber. Thick mouthfeel that has a sweet hoppy bitterness, and a fruity caramel maltiness. Strong, warming dry finish.

layyze (28) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2007
An excellent example of the style. Pours a perfect copper. Sweet and slightly hoppy aroma with some citrus. Lovely balance of bitterness and sweetness - not overly sweet like some other double IPAs. Alcohol not very noticeable.

NJDevilz69 (28) - Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, USA - NOV 19, 2006
Sampled from bottle, as well as on tap at my home. 90 min is a hopheads dream come true. Not quite as balanced as some IPAs out there but I tend to like the over the top bitterness more. Golden amber in color, the aroma is out of this world. Finishes with very little citrus which I like. And after having a few 90’s you experience a euphoria that no other beer has quite touched for me. Perfect Beer

This beer has jumped to the top of my list of beers to keep in your fridge. Great taste and pretty strong too. Pricey but everyone should at least try it once!
