The hops in this puppy are truly overwhelming on first sniff, but surprisingly the first splash on the tastebuds and then the finish are much smoother than any other IPA Ive tackled. Really worth the extra shekels--when I can find it (at Discount Liquor in Milwaukee, of course).

Bottled. Pours a clear golden amber with a massively lacy, creamy head. Creamy medium body mild carbonation. This beer seems like it has DIPA-level malt, but only IPA-level hops which have a tough time making their way through all that malt. The net result is a tasty beer, but one that seems to be more on the barleywine end of the spectrum than on the Imperial IPA end. The aroma is dominated by pineapple with oranges, nuts and toffee behind it. Theres a big shot of toffee and pineapple in the taste, which stays sweet almost to the end, which has just enough grapefruit to clean things up. Vaguely reminiscent of orange juice with alcohol added, but not like drinking a screwdriver - if that makes any sense at all.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2011 Bottled. Wow, this is a fanny kicker for certain. I tried the 60 minute a few weeks back, this 90minute is thicker with a chewyness about it. It is slightly sweeter than other DIPAs I have had, there is a bit of a bananna bubble gum mix with malted hop and maybe some other fruit like flavors. The alcohol is high in this puppy, I can feel it half way through my glass. I wish this Dogfish head was easier to find....I paid big bucks for a 4 pk. Rerated: Originally at 4.1, lowering to 3.5 after 4 years of other great IPAs, when I drink this now, it tastes like liquid SweetNLow. Recently had a bottle and on tap the other day, just horribly sweet.

Bottle. Poured a pretty good viscous golden brown with a small head that dissipated to just a white ring and some lacing. Good, thick, heavy malt mouthfeel with some good but slightly subdued hop character. I was expecting this one to be extremely hoppy but its actually quite light. However, very filling.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 23, 2006
Bottle. Hazy copper coloring. Hoppier, stronger flavoring than the 60 minute IPA and leaves you with a heavier, higher alcohol delivery to the tongue and back of the throat. Solid, impressive IPA but a little short of too high expectations.

This is one 4 pack I always replace. Very easy on the nose and palate, yet has a nice alcohol kick. I am a newbie, but this brew is me favorite yet...Nice blend of flavors. I recommend this for every fridge!

Dogfish Head 90 Minute Imperial IPA 12 oz bottle Bottled 05/26/06, gratified 09/06 Medium pour in a snifter Poured a clear copper with a tiny, barely off-white head. Smelt of light grassiness, sweet clover honey, and cinnamon banana. Taste was upfront heavily sweet with a light bitter crisp hoppy bite followed by a peak in bitter hops and a slow gradual descent in sweetness, finishing in a spicy flowery lingering hop finish. Mouthfeel was medium to full bodied, syrupy and velvety, soft nuanced carbonation with very light cozy alcoholic warmth and light to moderate astringincy. Overall, an Imperial IPA that is beatiifully balanced for taste and drinkability, but the sweet malt backbone hides the hop showcase a bit.
