We Georgians thought we were lucky when Dogfish Head sent us some of their 60 Minute I. P. A. (at the time, they made a 6% version for states with that alcohol limit, and may still). Then we "popped the cap," so to speak, so now beer of up to 14% is available in our area.
Imagine my glee to discover Dogfish Head 90 Minute! First it arrived in bottle, then we managed to have a new bar open up... Trappeze is its name (Google it up; I'll wait)... that carries loads of esoterica on draught. (No brag: they love me there.)
Folks, I am noted for my prodigious appetite for both food and drink, but I can only polish off two draughts of 90 Minute I. P. A. in an evening... and I won't try for # 3 unless I'm going to someone's conveniently-closeby couch and/or REALLY have something to celebrate.
Here's to Dogfish Head (beerless toast) and their plethora of witty and original products, and especially to 90 Minute I. P. A.!

P. S. I agree that the 120 Minute I. P. A. is virtual overkill. We don't have that here (I don't think); they do in North Carolina and Florida (so we buy it there!).
P. P. S. Yuengling Lager made its long-overdue appearance here last week. I have yet to drink one. I am told that their Black & Tan is also in our market. Dadgummit, more field work for the man who's trying to lose weight....
