Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 09-30-2002

60 Minute IPA is continuously hopped -- more than 60 hop additions over a 60-minute boil. (Getting a vibe of where the name came from?)

60 Minute is brewed with a slew of great Northwest hops. A powerful but balanced East Coast IPA with a lot of citrusy hop character, it's the session beer for hardcore enthusiasts!

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance – Dark gold to copper in color with no haze. Very carbonated but only yielding one finger worth of spongy foam when poured. A good amount of lacing left on the side of the glass as the foam receded.

Smell – Very malt forward at first smell. Grassy and citrusy notes from the hops are definitely present.

Taste – Very in balance for an IPA. Super malty and kind of sweet with biscuit like flavors floating around. Hops add some grassy and citrus characteristics to the beer, with the citrus flavors being closer to orange in flavor than the expected grapefruit from American IPAs. The finish was not as bitter as expected but was strong enough to balance out the intense maltiness.

Mouthfeel – Medium in body and quite carbonated.

12oz bottle into a wine tumbler.

A: Clear copper with a 1" head that recedes nice & slow. Retention & lacing are both quite good.

S: A nice balance between grassy & citrus notes. I actually get a kind of marmalade thing as well. Some biscuity maltiness underneath.

T: Follows the nose somewhat. Sandwiched between pleasant hop-bitterness is a nice, woody malt note. I also get lemon rind & fresh herbs.

M: Excellent carb to go along with a slightly slick, full bodied malt character. It's really pretty crisp.

O: Truly a fine, well-balanced IPA.

First DFH brew and quite impressed. Great flavor and mouth feel, almost tingly. Got a 90 minute in the fridge to try next, higher expectations for that one. So if 120 is the shit does that make the 60 half as good?

Not quite as good at the 90 minute IPA in my opinion, but still a solid beer. To me it smells like canned pineapple juice. Very pleasant - I'm not getting hops or grapefruit on the nose like other people are. The taste is a little bready but it mellows out and has a smooth finish. I could drink this with any meal and be happy.

An awesome IPA that is on the lighter side. Crisp, clean, nice hop flavor. Very balanced.

Very nice IPA. Not overly hoppy, which I hate. Not spectacular, but very good.

I know this is a highly rated IPA, but I'm not a big fan. I don't like IPA's in general, and this is no different. Looks nice. Decent aroma. A bit hoppy for me. Had it on draft and was a bit flat.

Rather have a 90 Minute but this is still a nice thirst quencher.

Very different IPA. Almost like an "IPA Light", and I don't mean that in a derogatory way. Hops are there, but not overpowering. Nice citrus notes and malt backbone. Very slight skunkiness, but I am not bothered by it. Many people find IPAs refreshing, but I've always considered them more "bracing".. more of a cold weather beer. This beer however, is a summertime IPA to me. High on the refreshment scale, and something that looks like it's gonna be my go to IPA this summer.

Not your average IPA. Most IPA's I've had thus far have been very bitter and full of flavor, which is why I love them. This IPA however is full of flavor but lacking in the bitterness, which makes it special. All those flavors that can sometimes be overpowered by the bitterness of most IPA's. This one doesn't and it's like that for a reason. This IPA is FULL of flavor that is a nice change of pace. It's almost perfectly golden clear, light on smell of sweetness, and the mouthfeel was the only thing I found somewhat disappointing. It seemed to be over carbonated, sometimes turning into full foam and bubbles in my mouth. But this is a small complaint. A great IPA

A bit of a disappointment as the 90 was so good. Much less hops than I anticipated. Thought I with the 60 minute boil it would standout more. Catering to the masses here....

This may have changed my mind about IPAs. I've never been a fan, never really found one that I enjoy drinking. But this one I find very drinkable and I will have it again.

Bottle to pint glass. 1/2 inch White soft head with A lot of lacing. S: bready citrus T: citrus and resin with a malt flavor lingering from start to finish. A lot of initial bitterness that dies to a more subtle pleasing citrus hop flavor. O: Good but not sure if i would buy again due to the sharp upfront bitterness.

Look: darker golden color/ light brownish tint. Smell: not overly hoppy but you can definitely smell some hops and a citrus smell. Taste: tastes of hops/ orange peel/ " piney" taste noted as well. Feel is not bad, not too carbonated but it does feel a tad bit heavier that other IPA,s that I've had. Overall, I would recommend this beer to someone new to craft beers

Pours a translucent, golden amber color with an inch of coarse, white froth that hangs around for a while. Nuanced aroma smells of grapefruit, floral hops, candy sugar, and an almost Belgian yeast/clove element.

The first thing that strikes me with the taste is that this is a nicely balanced IPA. There’s a complex malt profile that includes toasted bread, honey, caramel, white grapes, and pears. The hops are floral and slightly spicy, while the yeast adds a chalky aspect that lends additional character and complexity. There is some pine resin in the finish, but this no conifer-bomb, to be sure. There’s also an underlying fruitiness that makes for a very light and engaging drinking experience. Medium body and carbonation complement the taste nicely, although the body wavers just a bit on the back end.

Overall, this is a delightfully balanced and nuanced IPA. I’m not sure if this bottle had some age on it to mute the hops a bit, but this was much more to my liking than your typical IPA. I wouldn’t even mind sessioning this one.
