Availability: Year-round

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!

3.63/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Package: 12 oz. bottle. Label scored between 1 & 2; 6% ABV. Bottle-conditioned.

Cost: $8.49 a 6-pack @ King’s

Presentation: Imperial pint glass at ~45º

Appearance: A medium-vigorous pour resulted in ¾” of white head at best, which quickly receded to a thin film. Body was a lovely, rich golden yellow color. Apparently robust carbonation resulted in streams of medium-gauge bubbles. Mostly clear, with several “floaters.”

Smell: Hops assaulted my nose like the Allies on Omaha Beach. At first, the sensation was unpleasant; but as I acclimated, I could begin to differentiate the sensations of mentholated pine, citrus, and new-mown grass.

Taste: The taste was like the aroma squared. Unfortunately, this meant that the hops were even more dominant. Whatever elements of malt, grain, and fruitiness (other than grapefruit) present were lost on me. The immediate taste is pleasant, but it quickly turns overly bitter and medicinal. Even as it warmed further, not much developed in the middle of the palate or on the finish. Made me think of club soda with hop oil extract and a lemon twist.

Mouthfeel: The high level of carbonation apparent during the pour translated to a fairly coarse, rough texture in the mouth, unrelieved by any roundness from malt complexity. A bit watery and brittle.

Drinkability: I think this would benefit from being served older and colder. Not unpleasant, but not something for which I couldn’t find several better alternatives.

I overpaid for this because I like to patronize King’s so that they will continue to cater to me. If this were $6.99 like the HopDevil (as in other outlets), it would be more competitive. It is hoppier than the HopDevil, but not as complex or ultimately satisfying. I preferred the 90 Minute IPA, if only because it offered much more than a Hop Hit upfront, but is less drinkable because of its ABV. I will probably put 2 aside to test its aging potential.

Bottom Line: A one trick pony. The second bottle did pair well with pepperoni pizza however, which tamed its hoppy profile. Would probably make a very refreshing beer if served cold on a hot, summer day.

5/10/03: Much improved. Better head and smoother carbonation, with a much more harmonious flavor profile. Fruitier, maltier and much more enjoyable. As a bottle-conditioned ale, it'll probably be even better at 6 months. Obviously too green through initial 4 bottles.
