Very clear golden color. Negligible white head. Tiny bit of lacing.
Smells of grapefruit and candied grapefruit. The potency of the nose diminishes greatly within the first few minutes, however, and is nearly impossible to detect after that point. Minor burnt notes.
Flavors: grapefruit, pine, burnt/roastiness. The hops are great, but the burnt flavors really not cute. I have had more than a few bottles of this beer over the years and it doesn't always have that burnt quality, but it's there often enough to cause me to regard this as a below average-tasting IPA. As far as I'm concerned, it (the burnt flavor) has no place in an IPA, and I don't think it complements the other flavors well at all. The finish is very bitter and contains powerful notes of citrus peel. There are also some notes of cooked vegetable after the swallow. 60 Minute is not a horrible beer, and often it is the only beer available that I would consider ordering. However, I can easily think of many more tasty IPAs. My conclusion: the main reason this beer is held in such high esteem is its relatively wide availability.
The body is light-medium, and a bit creamy. Plenty of carbonation to go around... almost too much; dries out your mouth.
