Esquire Magazine calls our 90 Minute I.I.PA., “perhaps the best I.P.A. in America.” An Imperial I.P.A. brewed to be savored from a snifter. A big beer with a great malt backbone that stands up to the extreme hopping rate. This beer is an excellent candidate for use with Randall The Enamel Animal! 90 ibu
Tasting Notes: Brandied fruitcake, raisiney, citrusy.
330ml bottle, 9%ABV and 90IBU – 2.62 Standard drink units, Could be interesting.
A much different aroma, darker than the 60, same head, the aroma is deep candied sugars and sweets, a different thing altogether. This is a similar aroma to the Renaissance Barley wine (2012).
Wow this is a “thick” beer, with a big smack of malts, that sits up the hops and takes a bow. It’s very nice is what it is.
The bitterness from the hops is still there, although bitter isn’t what you’d ascribe to them, they’re not the front and centre. Enthusiastically I could write a lot on how nice this is. But… it is a ‘sweet’ beer and it is a high ABV rating, and as such you might need to be careful of your intentions. Moving from the 60 to this would be a logical thing if it was getting to the end of the night, but this all night, madness.
the pdubyah-o-meter says 8.5 units of it’s seemingly random scale, which makes it a top beer with a few faults. I’d suggest that this could be more hop-bitter to quiet the malt over-rush.
But it is an excellent beer, and I’d be getting this again.
