Notes/Commercial Description:
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: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

P: Beautiful crystal clear pale straw body with a massive cap of white meringue head. Great retention with intricate lacing stretching along the glass.

S: Loads of tropical fruit. Melons, nectarine, pineapple, slight metal aroma, fresh milled grain, black pepper and pine cones.

T/M: Crisp and clean flavors of tropical fruit, toasted sourdough bread and leaves the palate waxy. Medium body that starts out thin and builds the longer it's in the mouth. Great bubbly carbonation that hums and doesn't sting.

O: A solid all around IPA that anyone can enjoy. Huge clean refreshing flavors. This is my kind of summer ale.

4.84/5  rDev +18%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A-Amber/burnt orange body. Rusty brown as well. Shiny orange edging. Bright orange when held to light. Average-to-good sized white head. Good retention. Cascade lace decorates.

S-Sweet medium caramel malt. Sticky fruit. Pineapple, grapefruit in there. Bready. Hoppy. Dank. Sticky pine, not fresh cut pine but a sticky sap covered kind. Toasted grains.

T-Perfect medium hops. Spiciness. Citrusy & juicy. Sweet orange is the upfront citrus note. Then a mild tart lemon flourishes. Memorable moderate malt makes the brew even more well-rounded. The hops are the canvas and main backdrop in taste with the supporting citruses & malt splashing color & flavor on your palate.

M-Medium body. Medium carbonation. Smooth body with a creamy feel swirled in. The sip starts sweet, arches up with a bready middle then smoothens out with bitter pine on the finish. Mild spicy hops akin to white pepper titillate the palate throughout the whole sip. Carbonation could retain longer, but the creamy body and tingling hops save the day.

O-High-end IPA. If you drank every IPA currently brewed in the world, Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA would definitely fall into your Top Ten Of The World. And what a versatile brew. It sips alone great and pairs perfectly with most cuisines. Time tested and true is this brew.

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

A- Pours a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Super clear and has perfect carbonation. The lacing is also outstanding and reaches all the way to the top of the glass!

S- Smells awesome. Citrusy and earthy. Not too strong to distract you from the taste.

T- Very hoppy as expected due to the continuous hopping method. Had a perfect balance of maltiness and hoppiness which creates a very flavorful brew. Starts off sweet and finishes crisp.

M- Light to medium body. Very drinkable for an IPA.

O- This is my favorite so far from Dogfish Head.. Still need to pick up a 90 and 120 minute. If you are a hophead, you will appreciate this beer a lot. It won't melt your brain with hops, but it has a fantastic balance and the flavor is great.
Keep it up Sam!

My current favorite for home drinking while watching a sporting event. Didn't really know much about IPA until I tried this one. Clean taste and perfect for having more than one.
Great flavor and easy to drink but not boring with a strong hoppy bite. After having tried many other IPA this one is still tops.

Caramel color with plenty of see-through. Creamy head recedes to a thin film. Nice lacing.

Fruity aroma suggesting of apricots with mild malt character.

Buttery, biscuit malt character up front which remains throughout the experience. Juicy, semi-sweet apricots and pears with just a hint of pine. Not overly bitter and not overly sweet. One word explains the flavor: balanced.

Medium bodied. Well carbonated. Smooth and creamy mid-drink with a semi-dry finish.

Great IPA. Familiar, yet fresh.

4.19/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Tasted On: 02-27-2014
Freshness: Bottled on 01-20-2014
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Shaker Pint
Purchased: 6-pack from Chuck's, Bowling Green KY

Appearance is a clear golden-copper color, topped with a creamy off-white head. A pretty spidery lacing combines with a very good head retention.

Aromas are of bright, fresh hops, with citrus and floral notes.

The taste has an initial hop bitterness and is followed up with nice hints of malt. Medium bodied, the beer finishes with more citrus hops and some spice elements.

Overall a hoppy and bitter ale, yet rounded out nicely by the malts. A real gem!

4.09/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a snifter glass at around 45°F

Appearance: See through golden color with a one finger off white head.

Smell: Bready malt with citrus hops. This is probably my favorite component of this beer.

Taste: Balanced between citrus and bready malts, but the flavors are very subtle from what I'm used to from an AIPA. More like a pale ale.

Mouthfeel: Light medium with great drinkability.

Overall: This was one of my first craft beers and used to think this was a total hop bomb. Funny how things have changed. The overall aspects of this beer are great, but I am left with more pronounced flavors to be desired. If this were labeled as a pale ale, I would've given a higher score. However, this is a good sessionable AIPA.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Yellow with orange tint.

S: Light malt with some hops and bread.

T: This is a bit different from a usual IPA. Pretty nice actually. This tastes similar to a shiner bock or Peroni, in a way, which isn't at all a bad thing. It has a lager feel to it with some pepper and spice. Then the actual IPA feel comes in with citrus hops, orange peel, banana string, classic burnt malts, toast, and a bit of caramel on the back end (faint though).

M: Light side of medium. Carbonation is a nice touch.

O: This is an awesome and refreshing beer. Not so much an IPA as I would have expected it to be honest, more like a regular pale ale, but very good. It's a good beer to session as well.

12oz. bottle poured into standard bar pint glass. Re-Reviewing based on a second session.

A: Pours a hazy amber hue with a little bit of yeast sediment floating around. A large frothy white head eventually dwindles down some, but displays excellent retention. Massive amounts of sticky lace down the glass. This one is much prettier to look at the second time around thanks to a more conscious pour.

S: Some floral hops with a bit of grapefruit citrus zest. A little bit of earthy pine and some understated malt sweetness.

T: Lots of fresh flowery hop flavor, with a just as dominating citrus profile: grapefruit and orange or tangerine. A little bit of earthy yeast melds well with the malty background, doing a great job of balancing out the palette-kicking bitterness. Extremely well-balanced throughout. I'm pleased to say that the flavor profile this time around absolutely coincides with my previous session. A complex, consistent brew.

M: A relatively full-body makes sure this brew hits every nook and cranny in your mouth with each sip. A crisp, but not overly-aggressive, carbonation does well and doesn't get in the way of the overall creamy texture. Unrivaled session potential.

O: Dogfish Head has definitely set the standard for what an IPA should be. This beer is consistently outstanding all across the board, with no aspects of it truly outshining another. It's just pure, unadulterated hoppy greatness that drinks smooth and always satisfies. This brew has unmatched staying power.

Grapefruit and hops come forth strongly, a wonderful, well balanced flavor with plenty of character, but doesn’t over-do it. There are hints of malt and honey in there as well. Finishes clean, lingers a tad, but not too strong.

4.33/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

From: Piccadilly, Champaign, IL
Date: Bottled 2014-01-10
Glass: Ayinger pils glass

Dogfish Head's 60-minute IPA is a wonderfully bright and fruity IPA in the US tradition of the style. With expressive tropical and citrus fruit flavors melded with malt sweetness and hop bitterness, this is an easy choice for a hop-heavy and well-executed beer. One I would get again.

Pours a 1.5cm tall head of slightly off-white foam, with retention above average at two minutes, eventually descending to a thick ring around the perimeter of the glass and a thin cap of film resting atop the body of the beer for the duration of the drink. Lacing is excellent, with thick washes clinging to all sides of the glass. Beer's body is a bright golden orange color, with light bringing out rich golden yellow hues. Carbonation visible through the transparentn body, moderate in number and activity.

Aroma is pleasantly sweet and fruity, of grapefruit, mango, peaches, lemon, and pine, at times coming across as slightly "dank."

Overall flavor is similar to aroma, with sweet, tropical and citrus fruit flavors, well-integrated bitterness, and a pleasing malt sweetness blending it all together. Front of palate tastes sweetness from pale and slight caramel malt, joined to strong fruit flavors of mango, peaches, and more subtle grapefruit. Mid-palate experiences continued strong fruit flavors: mango, peach, grapefruit, lemon, guava, with a hint of pine and moderate-intensity bitterness. Back of palate detects strong upfront bitterness, but not overwhelming, mixed with more reduced fruity hop flavors (still mango, peach, grapefruit, guava, and lemon) and a hint of sweetness in the background.

Beer is medium-bodied, with carbonation of medium-high intensity, resulting in a balanced smooth and foamy (50% each) mouthfeel. This works for this beer and in the style as a whole: enough carbonation to move the beer across the palate, but not too much to undermine the sweetness and flavors of the beer. Closes dry, with medium-high stickiness clinging to the palate and lips.

I make it a point to try all of the dogfish brewery flavors anywhere I see them. they have mastered the craft of brewing beer. the 60 min ipa is the one ipa that I always go to when I'm out drinking. it's very smooth tasting with just enough hop. it gives you a nice feeling and very generously priced at most places that I have had it.

Bottled 3 October 2013. Tasted 14 November 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours a pale yellowish-amber color, clear. One finger of white head, good retention and really nice lacing.

Smell is hoppy, with a whole mix of things. Some citrus, a fair amount of pine, some herbal, some earthy. Lots of variety in the hop aromas. Twangy. But overall, a fantastic mix of grapefruity citrus with pine, herbs, juniper.

On first sip, it's noticeably tastier than a lot of IPAs. Nicely sweet and moderately bitter. Has that moderately dry, moderately bitter, clean flavor that I really like in hoppy beers. Nothing sharp or offensive, save the expected bitter bite.

Feel is really really good. Medium-bodied, feels a touch sticky, but it has this pricky zingy zip of carbonation that works so well with the dry crisp bitterness.

An outstanding IPA across the board. I can see why it's one of the classics.

A - Golden orange. Poured a light head. Distinct lines of carbonation. Clear/no cloudiness.

T - Same as with the smell, the beer provides hints of lemon, apricot, and peach. Unfortunately, the big detractor for this beer is it's overpowering sweetness.

M - Downside is it is slightly syrupy. However, beer yields a luxurious foam in the mouth. Refreshing.

O - Many aspects of this beer are top notch, but I couldn't get past it's overpowering sweetness.

Pretty good beer with an average taste and aroma out of a bottle. I feel like this one would be a treat to have on tap though. It was a welcomed bitterness but it didn't knock me out of the ballpark by any means. Nice drinkable beer with a decent mouthfeel reminding me of Peak Organic's IPA. However, it seems to be a bit pricey at 10 -12 dollars at vendors in Maine.
