What makes this beer different: Super sweet but a good dose of hops also.
Will I be drinking this again: Yes, this has become my go-to affordable imperial IPA
4/12/2010: Believe it or not I have never had any of the (insert number here) Minute IPAs from Dogfish Head. Why? Because only recently have I been open to IPAs and DIPAs. Honestly I would have never started to drink these types of beers if some of my readers weren’t pushing for me to try them. I am glad I did because this is probably my third favorite style now (After Imperial Stouts, and Belgian Dark Ales).
Man this stuff is awesome. Strong and sweet, but not too much of either. The sweetness comes from caramel malt, citrus hops, and I get a nice dose of honey in there also. Mouthfeel is just perfect on this one, with just enough carbonation. Just like the Rust Belt Ale from Sprague, this beer could use just a tiny tiny bit more hops to be a tier higher in my grading system. Overall this is a very affordable DIPA and I wish I would have bought a case of this for fishing this weekend instead of the Aventinus. Don’t get me wrong Aventinus is an awesome beer, just not as “sessionable” as the 90 Minute.
Picture of the day: Anyone care to explain what is going on here?
