Not totally sure how this IPA has eluded a review for the 6+ years I've been on this site, but let's fix that now...
Single bottle for about $1.50 in NC. Bottled on date reads 8/1/2011 - so just over a month old. Three cheers for a legible born-on date!
A. Gunsmoke out of the bottle. A very nice, full and dense white cap sits atop a medium-gold brew. My New Belgium goblet works its magic and a steady stream of bubbles rise to the surface to support the head. No lace worth mentioning.
S. Similar to 90 Minute with that sugary, syrupy, somewhat simple malt sweet mainstay, with added ganja-green hops. Earthy and distinctive. Somewhat spicy, reminds me of Gubna. Onions...?
T. Drier than the nose suggests, thankfully. The hop bill is decidedly odd, spicy and green, with just a little grapefruit pith and not much pine at all. While the green-spiciness and earthy, dirty hops are somewhat distracting to this IPA drinker, the flavor rights itself shortly and finishes out just fine. All in all... good, but not great. This is no Stone IPA.
M / O. Medium-full body, good carbonation right from the bottle. A slightly sharp hop-fade finish. Cleansing and easy to drink.
60 Minute is respectable, and would have gotten a better review from me back in 2006... but times change, the bar is raised, and now it's simply a quirky, well-put together IPA that isn't exactly my cup of ale.
