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!

A pleasant IPA refreshing but no real wow factor. But I am a stout drinker.

My local gas station actually has sixers of 60 Minute--they must have just started receiving them recently--and the price is about $2 cheaper than anywhere else in town! At any rate, I poured this right from the fridge into my Lakefront pint glass. Bottled on date reads it's about two months old.

L: Pours a honey amber color with about an inch-and-a-half of off-white head that sticks around for a good while and leaves nice lacing on the glass. This beer is just ever-so-slightly cloudy and has decent visible carbonation.

S: Bready malt and earthy hop notes in the nose, with just a bit of citrus coming through. Not a very assertive bouquet from this pour, but what's there is nice.

T: Bready malts and a lot of what's best described as earthiness in the front--the hops are registering somewhere close to resinous/piney but not quite there. As the flavors transition to the back, the hops become much more pronounced as pine, and some clear alcohol emerges. The malts remain on the scene, as you get more of sense of rye at the back. There's a suggestion of grapefruit rind as the bitterness takes over at the end. Tasty, though I was hoping for a bit brighter hop profile.

F: The feel is pretty spot-on: it's medium-bodied, well-carbonated, a bit creamy at the front, and perfectly bitter at the back, hitting the palate but not overly sticky.

O: This is a nice IPA--one of the better ones that can be found anywhere (around here) at any time of year. I wouldn't place this one above Two Hearted--kind of my standard--but it definitely drinks easy and delivers the qualities you want in a single IPA. My only complaint is that the bouquet and taste don't deliver big/bright enough hop notes.

Pale appearance, solid creamy head that retains very well.
Somewhat of an odd aroma. Not really much to it in my experience. Taste is wonderful. Malt forward, hop juice and resin finish, very tasty. Very pleasant mouthfeel; creamy and smooth. Not too bubbly, not flat. It is a great ale.

A dogfish head classic. Sweet yet hoppy. Great head retention and an attractive honey color. One of the styles best.

Delicious easy drinking IPA. Pine and floral notes dominate hop profile, mild citrus.

Solid IPA but 60 minutes is not enough hop presence for me. Cloudy golden in color, decent hop bitterness, but not over the top.

Not a bad beer, but it's just not made in a style I appreciate it. While enjoyable, I prefer my IPA's to have more of a hop presence, to lean more to the citrus side, and to have more bitterness. This really seems to drink more like an English style IPA.

I agree with others who have suggested that this would be a good "training wheels" IPA, for those just starting out in the world of IPA's.

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.

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. Most dryness/bitterness 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.

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.
