pinkzambia (1921) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 27, 2005
Bottle: Ok, is the rating higher on this one just because it is stronger than the 60 minute IPA. This higher percentage is the result of what might be called "beer snobbery." I thought it was good and even had a very nice taste, but the carbonation was quite high and the taste wasnt as rich as the 60 minute. By itself, its a good brew. Thanks Indiana_Red!

Very light clear amber color with ample head and lacing. Floral hop and pine aroma. Mixture of hops combine wonderfully with the malts creating a complex brew with amazingly good bitterness. Taste continues to grow on you as you drink. Zero hint of the 9%abv. I cleaned my local beverage dealer out of Aprihop and it was replaced with 90 Minute. If I clear that out can I get some 120 Minute??!!

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2007 Draft. Golden yellow with a huge fluffy whte head. Smells like fresh cut grass. hoppy. Tastes sweet, come citrus, and lots of hopps, even some spiciness in the finish. Excellent IPA.

hotstuff (4921) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Bottle. Large off-white frothy head that fully lasted, excellent lacing, fine-large sized bubbles, minimal carbonation, hazy, and an orange hue. Hoppy, sweet and floral aroma. Flavor was hoppy, vinuous and malty. Tingly and somewhat dry mouthfeel. Light-medium body.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 19, 2005
THIS is what I like! So much more smooth than the over-the-top 120 minute IPA, and little of the sweet alcohol finish. Fruity undertones with a sharp hop bite that lasts well past the bottom of the bottle. One of the best IPAs Ive had, EVER. Beautiful complement to a meat and sharp cheese platter.

Pours nice and amber, maybe slightly cloudy, with an average white head. The aroma is very nice, with a hint of fruit. As for the flavor, let me start by saying that Im not a big fan of bitter, so I was prepared to be disappointed by something that Sir Hops Alot had been attacking for 90 minutes. I was very plesantly surprised. While you can definitely tell that it has a lot of hops, its very balanced by the malt and the dry hopping at the end. Lots of flavors in this one beyond what you would usually find in an IPA. Very nice.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2006 Sampled yet again at the monthly meeting of the Champaign-Urbana beer club. Many times have I turned to 90 minute both on tap and in the bottle. Its decidedly apricot and honey on the nose with some sweetness and nuttiness in the palate. The citrus kicks in and makes for a complex flavor profile for an IPA. The sharp hop bite finishes for a long-lasting finish. Though IIPAs arent my favorite style, this is a an exemplar of the style.

tofubeth (10) - Vermont, USA - AUG 17, 2005
This is a nicely complex beer but far too aggresive on first drink: extremely hoppy, with slightly too much alcohol up front. If youve been sitting with a few pints of 60-Minute IPA, then this is a great chaser, but only if youre ready for your friends to call you a cab at the curb.

fluids (364) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 14, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Almost no head at the pour. Beautiful copper hue. The taste is very complex. Bitter then sweet then bitter then trails off with a sweet trail. Its like honey and grapefruit. Its an Bipolar IPA mixing the sweetness of barley wines with the bitterness of IPAs. The really is no way I can describe the flip between bitterness and sweetness. Very unique. I had this on tap (11/27/05) and on tap this beer blends the two halfs perfectly and the transition is absolutely smooth.

Golden in color with a fairly large head. Smells ridiculously hoppy; citrus, fresh cut grass, the works. Taste does not fall short of expectations, appropriate level of bitterness. Surprisingly smooth, with a strong, mule-like alcohol kick in there. Me and my porch like this one on late afternoons.
