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!

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.

Great IPA - excellent balance of biscuit malt and grassy, floral hops. I'm definitely enjoyed IPAs and DIPAs that have a bit more juiciness, but this is definitely a classic go to.

Piney, grassy, resin, earthy, hints of floral, bready, a touch of citrus but not as much as I would like. A solid go-to beer but overrated in my personal opinion as is most of DFH's beers.

Appearance – Dark gold to copper in color with no haze. Very carbonated but only yielding one finger worth of spongy foam when poured. A good amount of lacing left on the side of the glass as the foam receded.

Smell – Very malt forward at first smell. Grassy and citrusy notes from the hops are definitely present.

Taste – Very in balance for an IPA. Super malty and kind of sweet with biscuit like flavors floating around. Hops add some grassy and citrus characteristics to the beer, with the citrus flavors being closer to orange in flavor than the expected grapefruit from American IPAs. The finish was not as bitter as expected but was strong enough to balance out the intense maltiness.

Mouthfeel – Medium in body and quite carbonated.

12oz bottle into a wine tumbler.

A: Clear copper with a 1" head that recedes nice & slow. Retention & lacing are both quite good.

S: A nice balance between grassy & citrus notes. I actually get a kind of marmalade thing as well. Some biscuity maltiness underneath.

T: Follows the nose somewhat. Sandwiched between pleasant hop-bitterness is a nice, woody malt note. I also get lemon rind & fresh herbs.

M: Excellent carb to go along with a slightly slick, full bodied malt character. It's really pretty crisp.

O: Truly a fine, well-balanced IPA.

First DFH brew and quite impressed. Great flavor and mouth feel, almost tingly. Got a 90 minute in the fridge to try next, higher expectations for that one. So if 120 is the shit does that make the 60 half as good?

Not quite as good at the 90 minute IPA in my opinion, but still a solid beer. To me it smells like canned pineapple juice. Very pleasant - I'm not getting hops or grapefruit on the nose like other people are. The taste is a little bready but it mellows out and has a smooth finish. I could drink this with any meal and be happy.

I know this is a highly rated IPA, but I'm not a big fan. I don't like IPA's in general, and this is no different. Looks nice. Decent aroma. A bit hoppy for me. Had it on draft and was a bit flat.

Very different IPA. Almost like an "IPA Light", and I don't mean that in a derogatory way. Hops are there, but not overpowering. Nice citrus notes and malt backbone. Very slight skunkiness, but I am not bothered by it. Many people find IPAs refreshing, but I've always considered them more "bracing".. more of a cold weather beer. This beer however, is a summertime IPA to me. High on the refreshment scale, and something that looks like it's gonna be my go to IPA this summer.

Not your average IPA. Most IPA's I've had thus far have been very bitter and full of flavor, which is why I love them. This IPA however is full of flavor but lacking in the bitterness, which makes it special. All those flavors that can sometimes be overpowered by the bitterness of most IPA's. This one doesn't and it's like that for a reason. This IPA is FULL of flavor that is a nice change of pace. It's almost perfectly golden clear, light on smell of sweetness, and the mouthfeel was the only thing I found somewhat disappointing. It seemed to be over carbonated, sometimes turning into full foam and bubbles in my mouth. But this is a small complaint. A great IPA

A bit of a disappointment as the 90 was so good. Much less hops than I anticipated. Thought I with the 60 minute boil it would standout more. Catering to the masses here....

This may have changed my mind about IPAs. I've never been a fan, never really found one that I enjoy drinking. But this one I find very drinkable and I will have it again.

Bottle to pint glass. 1/2 inch White soft head with A lot of lacing. S: bready citrus T: citrus and resin with a malt flavor lingering from start to finish. A lot of initial bitterness that dies to a more subtle pleasing citrus hop flavor. O: Good but not sure if i would buy again due to the sharp upfront bitterness.
