Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA

Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA is truly one of my favorite IPAs. Dogfish Head makes three IPAs, the 60 Minute, 90 Minute and 120 Minute IPA. The minutes referring to the amount of time the wort is boiled with the grains, hops and other flavorings. Typically wort is boiled for 60 minutes. In the 90 minute hops are added multiple times throughout the boil and at other points after the boil and even once fermentation has begun. Surprisingly is not as brightly hoppy as some West Coast style IPAs like Green Flash West Coast IPA or Stone Ruination IPA. It does have 90 IBUs (International Bitterness Units), but the hop bite is masked with a slight malty sweetness. This is an incredibly smooth drinking IPA and goes fantastically with pizza. It does have a relatively high ABV of 9%, so consume wisely. I give it a 5 out of 5 proper pints.
