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!

We got this in a Trader Joe's mystery bag as a gift from a friend. Poured from 12 oz. bottle (bottled on 10/06/15) into a tulip glass. Paired with spicy Thai curry. Perfect match!

Look: Beautiful golden color and clear. Small off-white head that persists only at the edges. Great lacing as you drink it.

Smell: Classic IPA hop scents: piney, floral, citrusy. A bit of honey. I love the smell.

Taste: Subtle and not very bitter for an IPA. Nicely balanced, you can actually taste the malt, which I like. Doesn't taste quite as good as it smells, but still very good. The bitterness lingers in the aftertaste and invites you to drink more.

Feel: Medium carbonation, a little thin/watery.

Overall: An awesome, balanced IPA for someone like myself who isn't a hop-head.

from tap in a pint glass, look was medium amber color with a healthy head and good lacing, smell was hoppy straight IPA w no citrus hint, straight IPA, taste followed smell, strong IPA with minimal hints of any citrus and a very straight forward IPA, feel was medium carbonation and medium length hoppy throughout.

Light copper, slight haze and great foam lacing. You can immediately tell this is a well crafted beer. It has a unique flavor for an IPA, definitely taste the piney/resinous hops, but there is a unique bitterness that almost reminds me of bakers chocolate. Hmm. Also love the mouthfeel, would definitely do this one again.

Nicely balanced with moderate sweetness and distinctive hops - some of the fruity piney notes of a traditional american ipa but also some more vegetal grassy hops that seemed reminiscent of a pilsner. Pretty moderate bitterness in the finish. A tasty and intriguing IPA even if it doesn't approach my favorites. Bonus points for uniqueness.

12 oz bottled on 9/21/15. Poured clear gold with one inch white head. great lacing. Smell is dank, pine, and bready. Taste is similar with citrus as well. Light and not bitter for an ipa. Balanced indeed. Cheers!

Smell is a citrus bomb, malt sweetness, and a hint of pine. Taste does not have a lot of bitterness for an IPA, but instead has well-blended citrus and floral notes. Not the most flavorful IPA, but really clean and incredibly drinkable.

Pours golden copper in color with nice steady fizz and a great white head. This looks wonderful in the glass.

Some citrus and fruity hops in the aroma. Slightly floral as well.

Juicy, hoppy flavor. Very fresh tasting. Citrus and earthy tasting hops. Not a wild combination of hop flavors involved here, but very flavorful and excellently done.

Perfect body, perfect carbonation, perfect mouthfeel. The head never leaves the glass until the last sip. A well-balanced, truthfully excellent IPA in my opinion.

I dunno. I kinda liked the nose -- it makes you realize what a landmark beer this was, because so many other (subsequent) IPAs smell like it. Vaguely citrusy, sort of freshly herbal -- it just smells like hops + a clean and present maltiness. The bitterness doesn't seem very apparent at first, but it kind of wears on you as you go. And that clean maltiness grows in stature, offering some alcoholic sweetness. Combine that with the bitterness, and it gets a little tough to keep slugging down. I dig what it's done for the growth of the IPA and American craft. But, frankly, it's not something I'd often reach for.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours pale copper. Small 1/2 inch head, goes away pretty quick.

Smell is largely underwhelming. Slight malt sweetness and some fruity hops. Much more restrained than I thought it'd be.

Taste is about what the aroma suggested. Malty sweetness, some citrus and juicy hops, low bitterness, and a slight pine way off in the back. Also pretty subdued.

Mouthfeel is light and almost watery for the style. Although refreshing, and very sessionable, I want a bit more body in my ipas.

Overall, I was hoping for more after trying 90 min. Pretty subtle flavors. Would make a great fridge stocker, could pound them anytime, but not something I'd lust after.

12 ounce bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a somewhat dark golden color with a nice retaining white head. Great lacing.

Smells floral with a small hint of caramel.

Smooth taste with a touch of sweetness, small bitterness and malt.

I enjoy this beer and consider it a great regular. I find a lot of similarities between 60 minute and 90 minute IPA.

Pours copper with a very wide white foam head with low retention. Smells hoppy and fruity. Taste is bitter but friendly. Overall a great sesionable IPA

Sorry but I rate beers only on taste, This one for me was a 3/5. It's good but that is about it. I think that the 90 min might be better because I did catch myself wanting a little more booze with all the flavor in this beer. It's not busting with flavor but it does have your typical ipa bitterness along with a mild but noticeable citrus which I am not crazy about. I just think it wasn't necessary to put it in there at least not as noticeable as it is. Anyway if you haven't tried this beer then give it a shot but you might be better off with 90 min if you like your flavors with some kick if you know what I mean.

From 12 bottle into nonic pint glass.

L- pale, clear straw/ orange almost golden color, about a finger of white head. Leaves a white ring cap on beer but very little lacing

A- herbal, earthy, resinous, medicinal hops.

T- taste is the same as aroma with a little malt sweetness. Not much bitterness

M- low carbonation, dryness that makes you want another sip, fairly thin overall

O- I have trouble seeing a 90+ rating. I was wanting to try this beer for awhile and finally got the chance. I'm glad I waited til the second beer to review since I didn't care for it at first. Don't think I'll be buying these too often. East coast IPAs just aren't my thing

L -- Pours a coppery-gold with a fair white head that reduces to a ring around the edge. Slight lacing at first.

S -- Dank, grass, pine, citrus.

T -- First hit is pine and resin, some floral and grassy notes follow up, then dank comes in mid palate, and bitter takes it out through the end. With warmth, the citrus shows up stronger, mostly in the mid/end notes. The dankness also mellows out a bit, turns into herbal and earthy notes. There's also a sweetness to it that keeps it from being a hopbomb.

F -- Crisp, good bitterness, a little resin leftover.

O -- Good overall beer. Lots of dynamics in flavortown and they meld well together, none overpowering, each contributing in its own way.

This is described as an East Coast IPA and I'd agree. Not a huge hop profile it allows the the malt to hold it up very well. Grapefruit, light floral, flowery, light herbal notes are support by bran, grain, tea leaf and barley malts.

Solid malt backbone to complement the hop profile.
More balanced than imbalanced with a light aroma of citrus and a bready taste. Drinks easy with a clean finish; neither cloying nor dank/piney.

Very good. The hops are apparent but not overpowering. A bit flat and the feel is a little lacking, but tastes great and is smooth to drink. Wish it had a tad bit more ABV. Big thumbs up!

Great beer from a great brewer on the east coast. 60 minute iPa gives a multi leveled hop texture taste and smell that is pretty unique. Great citrus and floral notes on your pallet without the heavier alcohol kick of the 75 or 120 minute IPAs.

Beer was bottled about 50 days ago. I'm really underwhelmed with the intensity of pine and citrus. Malt flavors tasty and more complex than your average ipa. If only this was more aromatic and less fleeting in hop flavor.

Poured from a 1/6th keg I purchased for my kegerator into a snifter tasting glass.

A= Golden with carbonation bubbles continually rising. Thick creamy white head, dissipates slowly to a thin layer, lacing sticks to the glass.

S= Get pine scented hop aroma, some malt, some caramel, some earthy tones. Clean and balanced aroma.

T= Earthy and piney hops, solid amount of malt backing giving it a slight caramel or toffee aspect.

M=Medium to full body with moderate carbonation, a bit creamy.

O= Classic craft IPA, more malt than current trend, can be counted on for a nice looking and flavorful brew in all formats.

Pours to a thick white head that lasts and laces. Deep gold. Aroma is citrus and resin with a hint of biscuity malt. Flavor is hop forward but brings the malt too. MF is good. Damn good stuff.

Look: Two and a half fingers of creamy white head dissipates fairly quickly leaving a nice light bit of lacing.
Clear and golden yellow. Active carbonation.

Smell: Straight up piney. A little earthy and floral.

Taste: Like chewing on pine needles. Lovely resin. piney bitter finish.

Feel: A little sappy. Kinda sticky and that's ok. Active carbonation has a fun mouth feel.

Overall: . This would be my new favorite session if I believed in those kinda things. This is one fun beer.

The only craft brew option at Margaritaville in Las Vegas. Luckily, this one is a winner! Great IPA! Surprised that it was only 6% as it struck me as a bit stronger.

Bought a single 12 oz bottle from Beers of the World on 8/1/15. Served chilled in a Duvel Tulip. Light reddish gold, white head, nice lacing. Muted aroma of pine. Flavor is subdued with malt in front and a subtle pine finish. Mouthfeel is superb. It might be easy to be underwhelmed by this beer but it is a very fine beer that I could drink alot of.
