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!

Bottling date 1/19/15. Pour into DFH signature IPA glass.

Appearance - 4.75/5
Many fingers of light beige (/off-white) foam, which stays around for a while. A beautifully clear light orange, with tons of carbonation seen rising up the beer.

Smell - 4/5
A spicy pine hop aroma, with herbal and floral elements as well. Not much else can be detected.

Taste - 4.25/5
The hop taste is more mellow than the aroma, which is good in my opinion, as the aroma was quite strong. A quite mellow piney-resinous hop flavor with some musty citrus flavors as well. Overall this is a fantastic tasting IPA, probably one of my favorites. The hop flavors are very prominent, but not overpowering or overbitter.

Mouthfeel - 4.25/5
Medium-full in body. Very nice smoothness, with no carbonation kick during the sip. There is a medium-high amount of medium-light intensity carbonation.

Overall - 4.25/5
This was a fantastic IPA, one that I will definitely purchase again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Accessible IPA with mild bitterness and a sweet finish. Crisp, sweet biscuit malt accompanied by hops heavy in tropical citrus and very light on bitterness. Tastes like "a 'normal' beer," though still definitively craft. More on the side of American Pale Ale than IPA as far as taste. Wouldn't call it a session at 6% ABV, but if that came down by 1-2 and maintained the flavour this could be an outstanding session. Most dryness/bitter finish notes are a result of the ABV, so it would be nice to see a little less strength in flavour and a bit more complexity in the recipe.

Tastes less bitter than the smell lets on; the 60 IBU’s don’t show up. Not the hop bomb I was expecting, glad to say. Mild, refreshing, smooth, drinkable.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle, poured into a shaker. There's a nice, bright fresh citrus tangerine, as well as orange candy, with a light floral, grassy and/or pine note. There's also light tropical and wood note late. The beer is a sparkling, oily, effervescent gold color with a white soft foam head with excellent retention and a good lace. The taste is a beautifully balanced medium bittersweet with a slightly more bitter finish. The beer is smooth with a soft, foamy carbonation and medium body. Flavors of pine, honey, and grapefruit are dominant up front with a woody finish that accentuates the pine flavor and adds a floral note that sticks in the aftertaste with a light grapefruit zest.

Enjoyed it. Plenty of hops, and very drinkable. Got the 90 minute in my fridge and will see how far it exceeds the 60...would buy again.

A clear golden pour with a thin fizzy head that all but disappears leving a skim of tiny fizz. The smell is of faint hops, and malt. A well balanced IPA, featuring a bit of citrus hops, some noticeable malt, and a bit of grass. More malt than my ideal, but so well balanced I have to be impressed. Very solid.

A: Brilliant gold under a 2.5” rocky white foam collar that grips the side of the glass leaving sheets of lace.
S: Citrus and fruit.
T: A light sweetness, grapefruit, light malts.
M: Very luscious, smooth and creamy, well balanced, medium carbonation, fine bubbles, medium body.
O: The hops are exceptionally well done in this beer.

Pours a clear gold color with a small white kinda fizzy head. Has a generic hop smell with some grassy, earthy tones and a hint of citrus, also there was a little bit of a malty aroma. Taste reflects this aswell, but what kind of stood out to me was how noticeable the malt flavor was, also the alcohol was fairly noticeable. It was fairly light bodied, and pretty drinkable. It was pretty good, but fairly different than the IPAs I have been drinking lately.

Deep gold pour with frothy white head and tons of lacing. Grapefruit and grass aroma. Subdued grass and citrus flavors; lemon grassy finish. Lite mouthfeel, very crisp, with a citrusy tongue coating. Excellent lite IPA.

Fresh nose with citrus, mixed with a grassy field after a spring rain. Hoppy on the palette and strong. Finishes with gusto like a real IPA should.

Like others who have said, very easy drinking and consistently good. For those who want to have a good time but don't want to refrain from knocking some cold ones back. A prime choice, cheers.

The 60 Minute IPA is no longer unique or remarkable to me, with all the other choices out there these days. Yet it remains consistently good.

There's real citrusy, grapefruit hop finish, but it's not overpowering or overly bitter, which makes it accessible and a gateway to craft.

Carbonation is lively, and there's enough malt to balance out the hops. Substantial but not heavy.

A solid, easily accessible IPA. Has a great bouquet of sweet tropical fruit and pineapple. Taste is mainly tart grapefruit flavors, but has a mild sweetness on the finish for some balance. The taste is pretty typical of a quality IPA. Overall good, but nothing special.

If you are looking for an IPA that is more on the mellow side versus other IPAs this one is for you. I like my IPAs strong with a big, hoppy bite and a pungent nose. This IPA is good but not great. Kind of bland in the context of IPAs.

Pours a nice orange, fingerish of white head, decent lacing

Smell is a nice deep orange, mango, big bready and caramel malt backing, some light pine in the finish

Taste is like a mini 90 minute, some decent citrus notes of orange, tangerine a bit of grapefruit bitterness, some nice bready malt, lingering pine bitterness

Mouthfeel is medium, nicely carbonated, not as dry as most ipas

I finished a Founders Centennial before imbibing on this one. It was my first 60 Minute. Looked great. Poured a clean, dark amber. Promising. Didn't like the taste one bit. No comparison to the complex, yet balanced and strong taste of a Centennial. I realize they're two totally different beers. A Bentley GTC is a different car than a Chrysler 300. I don't see myself ever buying this one again.
