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!

I was so blown away by my first bottle of 90 Minute IPA (which I’ve since discovered is surprisingly sensitive to wear and tear) that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the session version. The 60 Minute entered my world as a slightly turbid, yellow gold color with a nice looking, just-less-than-white head that was stickily lace-prone. The same sweet, flowery aroma of the 90 Minute was evident in the nose—a testament to the sheer, brilliant beauty of continuous hopping. The beer smelled more like hops than it smelled hoppy. I was reminded of wildflower honey and orange marmalade-filled pastries at the same time. The flavor is still considerably hoppy, again, with the flavor of actual hops shining through more than the usual hoppiness of an IPA. Boiling hops results in the hoppiness that I’ve become accustomed to: piney, lemony, grapefruity, etc… 60 Minute tasted more like licking my fingers after handling whole leaf hops than a standard IPA, though less so than 90 Minute. Also unlike 90 Minute, this beer relented on the “actual hop” flavor, and settled into a more standard hoppy bitterness in the tail, conjuring mental images of fuzzy, leafy, green herbs. The malt was right there with the humulus lupulus the entire time, but like a pro sports agent, was perfectly content to simply watch the real star shine, and bask in some of the ambient light. However, without a solid, though unobtrusive malt base, there would be no pastry aroma, nor much sweetness to the honey suggestions.

60 Minute is a wonderful session IPA (as Sam suggests), but without the real kick of the 90 Minute. Better than many IPA’s, but oddly, not quite as complex—a little bit is lacking in the mouthfeel and in the potential malt-based complexity. However, if you’re looking to understand the flavor of hops (specifically Warrior, Amarillo and Mystery Hop X), then this is the quintessential starting place. 60 Minute is a lovely showcase of the reason that so many people drink better beer—behold the power of HOPS!
