Review – Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA
From Dogfish Head Craft Brewery – Esquire Magazine calls our 90 Minute IPA., “perhaps the best I.P.A. in America.” An Imperial I.P.A. brewed to be savored from a snifter. A big beer with a great malt backbone that stands up to the extreme hopping rate. This beer is an excellent candidate for use with Randall The Enamel Animal!
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery – 90 Minute IPA – Poured in a goblet – 9.0% abv. Purchased at Whole Foods Market – Arroyo Pasadena, CA.
Appearance: Pours an amber gold. Let’s about 60% light through. A picture perfect fluffy offwhite head sits atop.
Aroma: Hop notes including fragrances of lemon, orange, pineapple, earth, grass, and pine. Sugary malts are also in
the nose as well.
Taste: Starts off with a sweet and bitter, piney mouthful. Then I get a layer of bitter hopping and sticky sweetness. I also found a very small touch of dry biscuity malts as well after a closer examination.
Mouthfeel: Sticky, thick, and creamy.
Overall: A fantastic Double IPA with awesome aroma, and a flavor that is very unique to the style. I think I could pick out 90 Minute easily in a blind taste test.
