It’s got a nice hoppy presence but is approachable. It’s gold, medium-bodied, and made with four malts, plus brash American hop varieties like Simcoe, Centennial, Comet, Amarillo, and Citrus.
The thing about bucks is, they’re big, strong, and they make their presence felt. That notion sorta inspired us to brew Eight Point IPA, the first beer we ever brewed at Devils Backbone. It’s got a nice hoppy presence but is approachable. It’s gold, medium-bodied, and made with four malts, plus brash American hop varieties like Simcoe, Centennial, Comet, Amarillo, and Citrus. We don’t have any proof that a buck would like it, but we’re pretty sure they’d respect it.
Great for parties and large gatherings. Ideal for convenience stores, concession stands, vending machines, and more
It?s hard being the sequel, unless you wrote the original story. Inspired by the continual hopping process we invented with 90 Minute IPA, 60 Minute builds on that one-of-a-kind process and flavor, crafting a solid gold hit that?s found its own identity. Brewed using a boatload of intense Northwest hops, we boil this continually hopped IPA for a full 60 minutes, adding more than 60 hop additions continuously to create a bold and timeless flavor. Continually hopped to deliver a pungently, citrusy, grassy hop flavor without being crushingly bitter, 60 Minute IPA is a surprisingly sessionable IPA for the craft enthusiast. You?ll quickly see why this sequel has become our best selling beer, and why you?ll find yourself coming back to it again and again. The Greatest Invention You?ll Ever Taste: It was back in the mid-90s when we started messing around with extreme versions of super hoppy IPAs. We would use foolhardy amounts of hops, creating a really pronounced bitterness that seemed out of place. After an ?aha!? moment while watching a cooking show on TV, Dogfish Head founder & CEO Sam Calagione tracked down one of those old school vibrating football games to help feed the beer a continual stream of hop pellets. Boom! Continual hopping was born! You see, traditionally brewers make two hop additions – one big dose early in the boil for flavor, and another bunch at the end for aroma. But thanks to a rigged up football-machine-turned-continual-hopper and our addition of equal increments throughout the entire boil, Sam was able to create an outrageously hoppy IPA, without being crushingly bitter. Now all these years later, and after much more sophisticated second, third and fourth generation contraptions have taken over our continual hopping process, the theory and execution are essentially unchanged. 6% abv
What you have here is the only Imperial IPA in America inspired by a bowl of soup and a thrift store football game… Back in the 90?s, Sam was struck by a cooking show demo teaching viewers how to properly season soup through a process of continuous peppering. As it stewed and simmered, the chef added pepper in small but consistent doses, bringing through a unique bold taste and intense savory notes. If it worked for soup, why not beer?! Inspiration sparked and Sam knew that Dogfish needed to bring this idea of continuous dosing to our hop additions in the brewhouse. Enter our thrift store electric football game. If rigged at just the right angle over the brew kettle, and covered with hops instead of small dancing football players, the vibrating playing field would perfectly shake and shimmy the hops cascading down into the boiling wort at a consistent rate. Continual hopping was born! Continual hopping provided a beautiful balance to our Imperial IPA – allowing us to add a foolhardy amount of hops throughout the boil without making 90 Minute crushingly bitter. With rich pine and fruity citrus hop aromas and a strong malt ackbone, 90 Minute IPA created pungent, unapologetic flavor that led Esquire to call it ?perhaps the best IPA in America.? 9 % abv
