What the brewers say

“An imperial IPA best savored from a snifter, 90 Minute has a great malt backbone that stands up to the extreme hopping rate. 90 Minute IPA was the first beer we continuously hopped, allowing for a pungent—but not crushing—hopS flavor. Tasting notes: brandied fruitcake, raisiny, citrusy.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Hops and malt compete for dominance with notes of citrus, tropical fruit, lightly roasted coffee, honey, sweet chocolate, caramel, slight spiciness. When you close your eyes and smell it, you get a darker beer.”

Flavor: “Moderate grain sweetness and straightforward hops bitterness. Fruity—starfruit, lemongrass, tropical fruit—sweetness of honey, chocolate, caramel corn. Crisp finish with lingering sweetness. Too sweet in the finish.”

Overall: “A complex malty beer where the hops play second fiddle to the malt. We buy 90 Minute a lot and didn’t recognize it.”
