Amber color, thin white head. Little to no carbonation. Aroma of hops wine. Very rich flavor that lingers for a while. A truly amazing beer. Actually sessionable.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2007 I really enjoy this one. Good hoppy nose and hoppy taste. Strong, but not overpowering. I think this is probably the best of the DFH -minute IPAs, because it’s solidly hoppy, moreso than the 60 minute, but not as heavily alcoholic as the 120, which I find is so rich it’s lost its hops.

This double ipa has a mild aroma of citrus styled hop as well as malt adding into the mix. Strong and right in your face flavor of bitterness, tartness, and little reminder of sweetness. Plenty of citrus, grained malt, buttered biscuit, floral flower and pine all being put into effect so that this beer comes off as a standard imperial ipa by all standards.

Bottle dated 7/24/06. Pours a reddish-copper hue, minimal head, some lacing , and miniature little bubbles rising to the top. The aroma of this beer is amazing, not overpowering, but attention will be drawn from a small distance away. Hoppy, citrusy, bitter finish. Not too surprised, many friends have been raving about this for a long while, just got around to trying, and will make some room for this excellent beer.

12oz dated 06/27/06 - Beige head over tan liquid with bananas and hops on the nose. Tiny, tiny bubbles and nice lace. Flowers and malt on the front fading to hoppy bitterness. Good times.

Bottle. Clear amber - white head. Weird thick feeling, high malty, sweetness, a lot of hop, resin, high bitterness. burning feeling on the tongue.

redish orange in my snifter. Wow is just about all i can say. This is the best imperial ipa ive ever had. Ive had the 120 and that was just a little to extreme for me, ths 90 min is just fabulous. caramelly in scent decently high alch. rating which is perfectly hidden beneith the beauty of this one. the finish is nice also, a tad bit bitter but not bad at all!!!

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 If there ever was a perfect beer, this may be it. Seductive in its copper orange color and resilient head. The quintessential aroma of fruity hoppiness. Big burning hop character; toasted malt undertow. Warming. Resiny. Nice sticky lacing. Whereas the 120-minute is over the top, and 60-minute borders on the "ordinary", the 90-minute is the perfect balance between good and BIG ... even at $9 a 4-pack, I keep going back. Sign me up for more.

[Sampled at SBF, 2006] Golden. Extreme fruitiness and maltiness. Full-bodied.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Amber/copper body with almost no head. Smells hoppy and caramel-malty. Hops and alcohol stand out in the flavor, though there is a strong caramel malt presence. Medium in body. Very tasty and surprisingly drinkable considering the abv and ibus. If there’s a better IPA than the 60 minute, this is it (I know this one’s imperial, but still.)
