Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA
Poured 12oz bottle into a typical pint glass. Nice dark amber/copper color, nice head with some lacing.
Smells a little different than your typical IPA. Very malty smell, some citrus, pine.
Very malty, sweet flavor. Molasses, wood, earth, resin. Mildly hoppy at best. Alcohol is present and warming but not unpleasantly so. Intricate, big, different. Kind of a creamy feel in your mouth. I found that this IPA tastes better as it warms a little.
In my opinion, this is a bit of a hybrid, meaning this reminds me of a good Belgian beer, but with a hoppy flaver added in. Nicely different.
