The beer painting of the day is of 90 Minute IPA by Dogfish Head Brewery. The first sip was rich and malty. What I expected to be a hop bomb turned out to be nearly perfectly balanced. At ninety IBUs and 9% ABV, who would have known that this ridiculously strong-flavored ale isn’t a palate crusher? If you try to do anything after drinking even a 6 oz serving of this beer, you should rethink your plans and sit on the couch for at least 30 minutes, just to make sure you are safe to move.
Dogfish Head’s label has a Dogfish shark on it. I thought of some of the silly beer movies and figured if this beer were featured as part of a stupid movie’s plotline it would entail a shark loose in one of the beer vats.
Dogfish Head, you did it again with another fine offering! Malty and hoppy — a fine 90 minute boil! Brewers do it longer! Delaware for beer! I’ll be sure to visit your taproom on my beer trippin’ tour in November.
