Dogfish Head 90 Minute Imperial IPA, a regular offering from Dogfish Head, poured a hazy copper hue into the glass with a thin white head and little carbonation. The nose was surprisingly heavy in fruity malt sweetness for the hop bomb it is known for being, with some citrus and floral notes supporting.
Dogfish Head 90 Minute Imperial IPA hit the tongue sharp and crisp, with apple and light citrus notes quickly fading to a smooth, butterscotch malt middle. The IPA ended a little sticky and nutty as it faded.
There’s not much I can add to a legend… Dogfish Head 90 Minute Imperial IPA is the standard by which most 2xIPAs are judged.
