Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 09-30-2002

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!

3.25/5  rDev -20%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

From 12 bottle into nonic pint glass.

L- pale, clear straw/ orange almost golden color, about a finger of white head. Leaves a white ring cap on beer but very little lacing

A- herbal, earthy, resinous, medicinal hops.

T- taste is the same as aroma with a little malt sweetness. Not much bitterness

M- low carbonation, dryness that makes you want another sip, fairly thin overall

O- I have trouble seeing a 90+ rating. I was wanting to try this beer for awhile and finally got the chance. I'm glad I waited til the second beer to review since I didn't care for it at first. Don't think I'll be buying these too often. East coast IPAs just aren't my thing

L -- Pours a coppery-gold with a fair white head that reduces to a ring around the edge. Slight lacing at first.

S -- Dank, grass, pine, citrus.

T -- First hit is pine and resin, some floral and grassy notes follow up, then dank comes in mid palate, and bitter takes it out through the end. With warmth, the citrus shows up stronger, mostly in the mid/end notes. The dankness also mellows out a bit, turns into herbal and earthy notes. There's also a sweetness to it that keeps it from being a hopbomb.

F -- Crisp, good bitterness, a little resin leftover.

O -- Good overall beer. Lots of dynamics in flavortown and they meld well together, none overpowering, each contributing in its own way.

This is described as an East Coast IPA and I'd agree. Not a huge hop profile it allows the the malt to hold it up very well. Grapefruit, light floral, flowery, light herbal notes are support by bran, grain, tea leaf and barley malts.

Solid malt backbone to complement the hop profile.
More balanced than imbalanced with a light aroma of citrus and a bready taste. Drinks easy with a clean finish; neither cloying nor dank/piney.

Very good. The hops are apparent but not overpowering. A bit flat and the feel is a little lacking, but tastes great and is smooth to drink. Wish it had a tad bit more ABV. Big thumbs up!

Great beer from a great brewer on the east coast. 60 minute iPa gives a multi leveled hop texture taste and smell that is pretty unique. Great citrus and floral notes on your pallet without the heavier alcohol kick of the 75 or 120 minute IPAs.

Beer was bottled about 50 days ago. I'm really underwhelmed with the intensity of pine and citrus. Malt flavors tasty and more complex than your average ipa. If only this was more aromatic and less fleeting in hop flavor.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 1/6th keg I purchased for my kegerator into a snifter tasting glass.

A= Golden with carbonation bubbles continually rising. Thick creamy white head, dissipates slowly to a thin layer, lacing sticks to the glass.

S= Get pine scented hop aroma, some malt, some caramel, some earthy tones. Clean and balanced aroma.

T= Earthy and piney hops, solid amount of malt backing giving it a slight caramel or toffee aspect.

M=Medium to full body with moderate carbonation, a bit creamy.

O= Classic craft IPA, more malt than current trend, can be counted on for a nice looking and flavorful brew in all formats.

Pours to a thick white head that lasts and laces. Deep gold. Aroma is citrus and resin with a hint of biscuity malt. Flavor is hop forward but brings the malt too. MF is good. Damn good stuff.

Look: Two and a half fingers of creamy white head dissipates fairly quickly leaving a nice light bit of lacing.
Clear and golden yellow. Active carbonation.

Smell: Straight up piney. A little earthy and floral.

Taste: Like chewing on pine needles. Lovely resin. piney bitter finish.

Feel: A little sappy. Kinda sticky and that's ok. Active carbonation has a fun mouth feel.

Overall: . This would be my new favorite session if I believed in those kinda things. This is one fun beer.

The only craft brew option at Margaritaville in Las Vegas. Luckily, this one is a winner! Great IPA! Surprised that it was only 6% as it struck me as a bit stronger.

Bought a single 12 oz bottle from Beers of the World on 8/1/15. Served chilled in a Duvel Tulip. Light reddish gold, white head, nice lacing. Muted aroma of pine. Flavor is subdued with malt in front and a subtle pine finish. Mouthfeel is superb. It might be easy to be underwhelmed by this beer but it is a very fine beer that I could drink alot of.

A very interesting beer. Poured a darker golden color like honey with a good amount of head. Smelled like citrus. I could taste the hood and citrus but there was also something that made my tongue tingle which was unique. Overall this is a very good beer.

Good pour with an organe-ish color. Super fluffy head. First whiff gives off pineapple notes.Once I start drinking, i get a malty, nutty flavor. A buzz to the tongue and throat on the way down. A good beer.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy golden color with a decent transparency to it. A decent amount of carbonation was seen rising. The head quickly left and had some messy lacing.
The smell started off with citrus and pine and as it warmed, light caramel malty tones blended nicely.
The taste started off bitter and once again as it warmed, a nice sweet connotation from the maltiness blended in. A long sweet citrus to caramel aftertaste roamed into the finish.
The mouthfeel had a big burst of bitter pounding on my tongue. Its about a light to medium on the body. Carbonation feels appropriate for an AIPA.
Overall, this is a pretty good AIPA that I would have again.

I love Dogfish Head and I really like the 90 Minute IPA so I grabbed some of the little brother version and plopped it in the fridge.

Look-It pours a slightly clear/hazy golden yellow amber color and no head.

Smell-I get citrus and pine. It has a nice malt base that is similar to an orange crème soda which balances the hoppy aroma.

Taste-The taste follows the nose, but I get a much more pleasurable flavor. Dogfish Head did it again. That is all I’ll say for now. Check back for updates to the taste.

Mouthfeel-It is medium-bodied and delicious with a slight bite and well-balanced carbonation.

Overall-One of the best brews by Dogfish Head, especially if you are not strong enough to endure the bigger brother of the 90 Minute IPA!!!

This a really solid go to IPA, all the way. Hoppy when it should be but not intense. Has a smooth, clean, crisp flavor and mouthfeel with an expected piney tart hop finish. Easy to drink, probably a little too much so.

Pours a golden orange color, with 2 fingers worth of fluffy white head.

smell is all citrus, all the time. orange and grapefruit are the main aromas I get.

the flavor is more subdued than the nose suggests, but still delicious. light citrus flavors, with a some slight grapefruit rind bitterness.

overall, this is a nicely done IPA. Very easy to drink, but would prefer the citrus to be as prevalent in the taste as it is in the nose.

DFH invented the session IPA before anyone knew they wanted it. I hadn't had this beer for a few years and forgot just how good it is - smooth, malty, hoppy, lively, affordable. This is everything the session IPA wants to be, except it happened before anyone knew it happened.

Poured from 12oz. bottle into nonic pint glass

Look: Large soapy white head with good retention, very carbonated tons of bubbles coming up to reinforce head. Pretty light golden color, slightly opaque. One of the best looking IPAs I think Ive seen thus far. Good lacing.
Smell: Hop forwardness, great citrus and piney notes. Some malt does make it through.
Taste: Very nice piney and citrus flavors here, everything youre looking for in an American IPA. Malt comes through and than finishes with hop bite and bitterness.
Feel: Vey clean and crisp, Full bodied, well balanced.
Overall: Definitely a great go to American IPA especially for those entering the style.

Had a 12 ounce bottle of this at a get together with my music listening buds (the host provided it). I'm not a big IPA fan but I found this extremely enjoyable and refreshing. Very very smooth tasting and appropriate for a hot muggy evening. If I ever find a place that has this on tap, unless there's something more compelling available, I will try this again.

12 oz bottle. Finger length frothy head. Yellowish- orange color. Aroma is predominantly malt and grains with some detectable citrus hoppiness. I anticipated more hop aroma. Taste is malty upfront followed by pine and citrus bitterness. Very balanced with a nice hop punch. Has just the right amount of carbonation. This is a very drinkable IPA.
