La única vez que había probado esta cerveza fue en el brewpub de St. Andrews (Escocia) y tenía muy buen recuerdo de ella. En esta ocasión no estaba tan fresca pero ha sido una experiencia increíblemente agradable. Presenta un aspecto inmejorable: limpia, de color ámbar y con espuma blanca y consistente. En nariz se manifiestan notas derivadas de la malta como el caramelo pero también otras mas cítricas provenientes del lúpulo.  En boca el equilibrio es casi perfecto, con un amargor sutil que ira ganando presencia y muchas notas a fruta y caramelo.

Una IPA con aromas complejos y bien integrados; naranja, pino, caramelo… aporta un amargor que percibimos en la parte de atrás del paladar y que va incrementándose sin llegar a lo astringente; pasaremos de las notas a mandarina a identificar las de pomelo. Muy bien balanceada; te invita a seguir bebiendo, y deja un sabor de boca increíblemente agradable, mezcla de melocotón, cítricos y maltas caramelizadas. En la web recomiendan con hamachi kama, yo creo que con un mero o emperador a la plancha y aderezado con un poco de limón tenemos un complemento ideal para esta cerveza.

Dogfish Head / 90-Minute IPA

Dogfish Head / 90-Minute IPA

Hoy os traemos algo bastante exclusivo, 90-Minute IPA de Dogfish Head. La tenemos fresquita en botella. Corre, no te quedes sin ella!


According to Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head’s 90-minute IPA is the brewery’s first continually-hopped beer. Also, it’s the best-selling Imperial IPA in the country “nay … the world.” It takes over a month to make, and Dogfish uses their “Me So Hoppy” dry-hopping system during conditioning. I’ve always loved Dogfish craft beer, and was excited about trying this 90-minute IPA, which was pretty much the grandfather of all their other continuously-hopped beers: 60-minute, 120-minute, and even a 75-minute version.Taylor:  Over the last month or so I have developed quite a smattering of random beers in my fridge, most of which were picked up out of state (Vermont and Missouri, specifically). Before getting through tasting and reviewing all these interesting brews, I wanted to enjoy something more familiar. Luckily, there was a single bottle of Dogfish Head 90-minute IPA in the back. Yes.

Poured into a classic Dogfish pint glass, this beer was a nice reddish-brown and developed an excellent off-white head thick with tiny bubbles. Calagione’s note that one achievement of this beer is its “pungent hop flavor” and aroma … extremely citrusy and a little piney but not overpoweringly so due to the malt backbone. The nose of this 90-minute was full of wonderful citrus aromas, as well as some nice malty sweetness. I immediately knew this was going to be deep in flavor and finish.

I was right. The continuous hopping process and malt balance make this beer a taste explosion. Dogfish have walked the line between “bitter” and “pungent” with not-so-surprising ease here. All those hops will rock your palate, but the malts will bring you back to reality. Surprise! One sip is almost like taking a sip of two different beers back to back: big hoppy front, and malty finish. ABV is 9.0% … this isn’t one to just knock back. It’s more of a sipper in my opinion.

Either way, if you enjoy IPAs, this is a must-try not only for its historical significance, but of course for its solid taste. Once again, there’s really nothing negative I can say about the 90-minute IPA. It achieves what it sets out to achieve. It’s got integrity.  Grade: A

Tom:  I prefer this beer over 60-Minute for a few reasons.  1)  With a longer boil comes with it more hops.  2)  I feel the higher abv gives it some strength, muscle and body.  3)  The malt profile carries a deep fig, apricot, plum quality.  However, based on the darker malts used, this is not my go-to imperial/double IPA.  While I do find the sweeter caramel notes to be welcomed in this beer, I prefer the use of lighter malts.  Regardless of how I feel about my IPAs, this beer is quality time over.  The color alone gave me cause to sit back and just take it in.  The nice Bourbon color beer delivers a smack of pungent and resinous hops on top of a rather boozy quality.  A moderate carbonation helps to lift the multifaceted hop profile and caramel sugars off the palate.  Herbal, dank, and floral comprised the hops.  This is definitely not as citrus as 60-minute.  The finish is dry (I would argue more so than 60) due to the higher abv.  However, a sweeter aftertaste that only has a touch of biscuit malt.  A very solid beer.  Grade: B+
