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!

3.93/5  rDev -3.9%

Appearance - Very transparent and effervescent. A bright orange with golds and yellows. Little bubbles float to the surface, however, not many. This IPA does not seem to be very carbonated. Not much head retention. Any bubbles remaining tend to cling to the edges of the glass.

Smell - Simple, yet a fairly rich aroma. Lots of fresh floral notes, along with mild citrus fruits and toffee.

Taste - Nice acidic bite to it due to the citrus flavors. Plenty of Cascade hops or perhaps Amarillo hops give this a refreshing dryness. These hop varietals really cut through during the initial taste. Grapefruit, lemon, lots of earthy notes like flowers and grass, vanilla, light malts and gentle brown sugars. A mild hint of coffee, too. Quite dry.

Mouthfeel - This IPA really coats the roof of the mouth, leaving your palate buzzing all over the tongue and back of the throat. It does leave a light coating after swallowing. More carbonation then I would have guess, judging by the initial appearance. Fairly balanced and a nice use of sugars.

Overall - This Dogfish Head classic is definitely more on the bitter side compared to that of its predecessor, the 90 Minute. It is considerably less malty and a little bit more on the dry side. Having tasted both the Squall and the 90 numerous times, this bottle definitely offers stark differences that allow it to go a long way in making this stand out to a hardcore Hop-Head. For more bite and less malt, I would highly recommend the 60 Minute over the 90 Minute IPA. Dogfish does it again!

Appearance – This one is a deep but brilliant orange in color with a thick, creamy, retentive head that is slowly lacing the hell out of my Cottonwood glass.

Smell – This nose has a full, huge biscuity character making it a strong East Coast IPA. It’s almost nutty it’s so big. The hops are big and fruity.

Taste – The malts here are gigantic and flavored with Macadamia nuts. The biscuit is like raw biscuit dough. It’s almost tangy and very yeasty, not in a Hefe Weizen way but more like yeast in warm water after it’s foamed but before it’s mixed with dough. The hops are classic East Coast with lots of non-acidic grapefruit and a strong citrus balance.

Mouthfeel – This one is on the big side of medium-bodied with some good carbonation but little drying on the tongue. It’s creamy in the mouth like peanut butter.

Drinkability – This is very different than other IPAs that I’ve had. It doesn’t follow the pattern of DFH’s other IPAs, that’s for sure. It is very smooth though and went down quite well.

Update – I originally reviewed this with an ’05 sample so thought I’d revisit it with a 2006 vintage. It’s not as big in the mouth as I initially noted, but a very solid East Coasty IPA.

What can I say that hasn't been said so far, it's a great brew. Every bit as good as the 90 minute brew with just less of a kick.

I suggest starting off a session with a couple 90's and easing back a bit with a couple 60's.

Extremely well balanced, the hops, ABV%, etc. Other than being more costly, there are no real drawbacks to this fine brew.

Pale golden color, with sensational clarity and head retention. Bready malts up front in the nose, unusually so for an IPA. The taste is floral and grapefruity hops, hints of pine, with tones of chocolate malt, and a tingly bitter finish. This is more of a "session" IPA, for me. It's not gonna blow you away, unless you're one of the people it blows away.

Well i'll be damned if i haven't reviewed this beer yet... after numerous 90 mins and countless 120's it a shame. Its like this.

A- Pours a sharp golden copper colored fluid with excellent half inch head containing tightly carbonated bubbles. Beautiful craft look of great cascading lacing on rim of Ommegang Goblet. Perfect clairity.

S- Smell is a musky malt tang with light hints of citrus and grassy hops in the nose. Smells of fresh cut grass and barley.

T-M- The kiss of the brew packs a nice upfront hop bitterness balanced with supurb malt backbone. Light citrus, carmel, and brown sugar is what comes to mind. Complex but simple flavors... get the job done. Mouthfeel is inpectable due to the perfect hop and malt balance it rolls over the tongue with ease leaving a mild bitter bite and ligering astringent feel.

D- Definitly a session beer that can and will take you where you want to be with a style that is untouched and perfect for any occation... pricey at 11 buck a twelve pack though.

This is one of those beers that you dont ever forget. As soon as i opened the bottle the first scent that i detected was not beer, but hops. it smelled like i had a handful of fresh Cascade hops, not a beer. And then came the first sip..it even tasted exactly like hops. This is by far the hoppiest beer that i have ever had and it isnt the regular type of hoppiness. its a fresh zesty hoppiness as opposed to the regular bitter undertone that other beers have. The maltiness was also at a careful balance, but nothing compares to those hops!
