Since the Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA began my hoppy love affair, I had to try its bigger sister the 90 minute Imperial IPA. I have heard that this is one of the best IIPAs on the market and I love most of Dogfish Head beers so this was a must have beer for me. The hops come out to greet you as soon as you finish pouring, with a distinct grapefruit citrus punch and a beautiful amber color. The taste was exceptional. It follows the 60 minute’s malty backbone with a strong malt flavor that help balance the enormous hops. This IIPA was very thick and chewy with plenty of hops on the front end that gave way to a smooth vanilla malt finish. This was an outstanding beer and right up there with one of the best of the style. This gave the Alesmith Yulesmith a run for it’s money, and it’s always available here in Texas. This is a must try beer for any hophead and one that is easy to enjoy.
