*This review will be interjected with the reactions from my non-beer drinking mother. Fire away, Mommers!*
Appearance: Pours a light, golden color topped with a large creamy head. Very, very faint haze. Moderate carbonation. (Mom's voting this one amber and remarked the head was nice and "fluffy".)
Smell: Fresh, clean scents of citrus, pine, and grass. Some beers will only give you merely one of these three aromas, but the 60 Minute IPA features ALL THREE. What a deal! There's a subdued malt backing behind it all, but its more like a malt lacking. (Mom says this one smells "sweet". I asked her to kindly elaborate, but she ran off to go get the mail.)
Taste: Sharp hop flavors, although none too fierce. A touch of citrus and pepper. There's a secondary toasted malt flavor, but its greatly diminished amidst the hops leaving the brew a bit uneven. Finishes with a long, predominately astringent dryness. (Mom deftly dodges around the question of taste by simply stating this is, "the best beer you've brought over.")
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied, but nicely accentuated with an invigorating carbonation.
Drinkability: Questionable. Ultimately, I am unmoved by this offering and would rather opt for something a bit more fuller and more rounded in the future.

Poured from a bottle with a bottled on date of 6/24/14; into a pub glass.
Appearance - a brilliant gold, swirling carbonation bubbles that form a fluffy, white head. Lacing, surprisingly, is weak.
Smell - more earthy hops, pine, herbal; some candy malt notes. The herbal/grass nose after the bottle is finished is always a bonus for me!
Taste - earthy hop flavor with subtle malt backing. Not bursting with flavor, but this grows on you quickly and it's hard to stop sipping!
Feel - very well balanced, though the finish is hop bitterness; incredibly easy to drink!
Overall - somehow one of the most iconic IPAs has eluded me for this long; well worth the wait! Such a well crafted IPA; I get the feeling my review will change (for the better) as I have another bottle!
