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!

Pours a clear gold color with a small white kinda fizzy head. Has a generic hop smell with some grassy, earthy tones and a hint of citrus, also there was a little bit of a malty aroma. Taste reflects this aswell, but what kind of stood out to me was how noticeable the malt flavor was, also the alcohol was fairly noticeable. It was fairly light bodied, and pretty drinkable. It was pretty good, but fairly different than the IPAs I have been drinking lately.

Deep gold pour with frothy white head and tons of lacing. Grapefruit and grass aroma. Subdued grass and citrus flavors; lemon grassy finish. Lite mouthfeel, very crisp, with a citrusy tongue coating. Excellent lite IPA.

Fresh nose with citrus, mixed with a grassy field after a spring rain. Hoppy on the palette and strong. Finishes with gusto like a real IPA should.

Like others who have said, very easy drinking and consistently good. For those who want to have a good time but don't want to refrain from knocking some cold ones back. A prime choice, cheers.

The 60 Minute IPA is no longer unique or remarkable to me, with all the other choices out there these days. Yet it remains consistently good.

There's real citrusy, grapefruit hop finish, but it's not overpowering or overly bitter, which makes it accessible and a gateway to craft.

Carbonation is lively, and there's enough malt to balance out the hops. Substantial but not heavy.

Slight citrus with strong pine taste with a most pleasurable feel. Went down smooth with a great feeling. Totally loved this beer

A solid, easily accessible IPA. Has a great bouquet of sweet tropical fruit and pineapple. Taste is mainly tart grapefruit flavors, but has a mild sweetness on the finish for some balance. The taste is pretty typical of a quality IPA. Overall good, but nothing special.

If you are looking for an IPA that is more on the mellow side versus other IPAs this one is for you. I like my IPAs strong with a big, hoppy bite and a pungent nose. This IPA is good but not great. Kind of bland in the context of IPAs.

Pours a nice orange, fingerish of white head, decent lacing

Smell is a nice deep orange, mango, big bready and caramel malt backing, some light pine in the finish

Taste is like a mini 90 minute, some decent citrus notes of orange, tangerine a bit of grapefruit bitterness, some nice bready malt, lingering pine bitterness

Mouthfeel is medium, nicely carbonated, not as dry as most ipas

T: A slight bitterness follows in the middle followed by some pine and citrus hops.

AT: A well balanced IPA and very drinkable.

I finished a Founders Centennial before imbibing on this one. It was my first 60 Minute. Looked great. Poured a clean, dark amber. Promising. Didn't like the taste one bit. No comparison to the complex, yet balanced and strong taste of a Centennial. I realize they're two totally different beers. A Bentley GTC is a different car than a Chrysler 300. I don't see myself ever buying this one again.

I had this beer the other day in the good ol Hooier State, and I think that was the major problem. The hops did not explode at me like I thought they would. I am going to try it again in the future a bit closer to Delaware to get the full experience.

Bottled on 12/15/2014. Sampled and reviewed on February 23, 2015.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass. Pours a dark gold with a 1 finger white head of foam. Smells of hops, pine, grass, orange, citrus, and a slight hint of malt. Taste is of hops, pine, and citrus mainly. Some hints of orange peel. No malt. Slight malt presence in aftertaste along with traces of hops and pine.

Overall a good IPA, but it didn't impress me like I had hoped. Smell, and more importantly, taste are both a bit lacking in my opinion. Very drinkable. I feel like I could sit and enjoy several of these, unlike some other IPA's. I just feel like it's missing something. Maybe the 90 minute IPA will be more up my alley.

On tap at DFH Fairfax, VA. Amber pour with thick white foam that sticks. Piney and resinous with a flash of orange. Nice bitterness in the finish.

Pours gold-brown with thin, clingy off-white head. Aroma is citrus and malt, not as pungent as I’d expected. Same with the flavor - this is definitely session beer. Tasty for sure, but not terribly interesting.

Very smooth, not too hoppy for the average beer drinkers. I will definitely be having another one or two of these soon.

Serving: Bottle into snifter
Served: 15 Feb 2015

Appearance: Pours more golden than many IPAs, with a soft white head. Leaves some lacing.

Smell: Big hops up front, with a notably floral aspect. Some soft citrus notes- mandarin orange and grapefruit- in there too. A touch of dankness.

Taste: Nice smooth hoppiness all the way throughout the sip, starting with a punch of floral hops and followed by a nice citrusy, bitter finish. Good malt body carries the hops and provides just a touch of sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, would have liked just a touch more.

Overall: Another great IPA from DFH and one that is lower in alcohol than many of its brethren without sacrificing body or flavor. Delicious beer, though I admittedly like 90 Minute more.
