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!

this beer is fantastic. not quite as fantastic as the 90 minute but none the less this is a great beer. pours a clear copper color with not too much head and a good bit of carbonation. The smell wasn't quite as potent as i thought it would be. Although the taste and the flavor ceretainly were. i would say that as far as the price and availability you can't get much better for your money.

I love this beer. A great all around IPA, and something that I would definitely recommend to anyone who likes Dogfish Head. Something that goes well with spicy foods, and my favorite experience with this has to be when I had hot wings with a bottle. Great hoppy flavor with pine strength all the way through, it's not the most drinkable but such a great example of how IPA's are supposed to be made: with tons of hoppy flavor.

poured from bottle into pint glass

A- pours a gorgeous golden color with great head. The foam on top almost makes the brew glow. Carbonation is fantastic

S- great scent of floral, piney, and citrus hops. There is a scent of sweet malt at the end. The brew lifts itself and creates the craving for an Am IPA

T- Sweetness meets bitterness. A butter flavor clashes with an earthy flavor. Grapefruit then fills in the rest. This brew exemplifies a drinkable IPA. It's so delicious

M- first light, then crisp, then a little creamy. A bitter taste remains at the end... which is what I like

D- this is the IPA's of American IPA's. The discipline and attention to detail, creates a beer that displays what crafted beers are all about. I would recommend this brew in two ways... 1. An intro to great crafted IPA's 2. A drinkable craft session. Great job DFH

Golden straw with a quarter inch white head that remains.
Smell is sweet malts and surprisingly low hops. Grapefruit, orange, pineappple, and a little lemon. Unusual smelling IPA, but it's pretty good.
Taste is again sweet malts with the hops being quite subdued. The malts carry, becoming more bready with a subtle hint of caramel. Pineapple and apple, along with various other citrus hints. But this one is heavy on "red" fruits, which is interesting. Very slight bitterness near finish.
Mouthfeel is fairly crisp and smooth. Medium-light body.
Drinkability is very good on this one. Relatively low ABV and a very interesting IPA that makes me curious to try again. Much better than the 90 Minute, as it's more balanced.

A- Pours a clear golden color, 1 finger of bubbly head that receeds to a thin foamy scum.

S- Citrus hops with a bready malt background.

T- A little fruity flavour, mild citrus hops, bready malt finish.

M- Crisp, clean, light bodied.

D- Great session beer, great beer to have on hand.

Pours an amber body with lots of carbonation and a foamy white head. Lots of c-hops as expected, grapefruit and pine. There is a light buttery cake undertone in the aroma. Tons of bitterness from the hops and a subtle caramel base. Not as balanced as the 90 minutes, but still very drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A- Amber, with a moderate white head.

S- The aroma is dominated by bright, fresh, citrusy hops. Very alluring.

T- Rich, nutty maltiness and grapefruit hops share the stage. The finish of hops bitterness lingers on.

M, D- The 60 Minute hits the palate with enough structure to be substantial, but not so much as to be overbearing; this beer is refreshing and satisfying at the same time. I think this is a true case of exceptional drinkability when enjoyed from the tap, where every sip tempts you to have another. Great stuff!

Reviewed from my notes. The beer is golden orange with streams of carbonation rising. It's very clear in appearance. There is a thin head made of white foam and soap bubbles sitting on top. There is a great fresh hop aroma with some bitter hop oils mixed in as well. It's very appealing. The taste has sweet hops up front, followed by that great DFH hop bitterness. The aftertaste is also bitter, but not too strong. This is an ideal IPA. It has a light to medium body with good levels of carbonation and some mouth coating. It feels above average, but not exceptional. I find this beer to be so drinkable. It's a great go-to hoppy beer that is easily accessible. It seems criminal I don't have a case in my cellar for easy access.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours almost completely clear yellow/orange/gold color with a small head of white bubbles that fell pretty quickly back into the beer.

Aroma: I initially got lots of citrusy hops, but they actually had some balance with the malt. The malt is somewhat sweet with a bit of honey noticeable.

Taste: The flavor is pretty much in line with the aroma in that is is very hoppy with some honey malts coming out. There are some toasty notes in the flavor that I didn't pick up in the aroma. The overall balance is hoppy with a medium body and slightly light carbonation. The finish is mildly toward the hops, but the beer doesn't finish chalky.

Opinion: This is a pretty good beer. I have not reviewed it because I guess I was afraid that it would be so bitter that it would be hard to drink. It actually has some malt balance, while being different from the 90Min IPA. I am pretty pleased with this beer overall though I am not a hop-head. I would drink it again...so there you go.

Clear, straw-colored with a thin white head...not really my thing.

Very nice smell of floral citrusy hops with a touch of pepper.

Has a woody, citrusy taste.

The mouthfeel is complex. The hops hit you like a hammer before gradually giving way to the mildness of the citrus.

The finish is strong with the bitter notes coming thru.

Nice lacing in the glass. This is an all-around good beer; looking forward to another.

Had my first 60 Minute IPA the other night. Color was nice and it had a good smell, sort of citrus'y'. The taste was excellent, it was 'full body' and had some bitterness but finished very smooth.

I typically don't drink IPAs, but after reading other reviews about this beer, I gave it a try and really enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend this one.

My first Dogfish Head product. Thanks goes to Arista Foods. Heres we goes.

Appearance- Poured into my new tulip. Golden orange with a fizzy white head that falls quickly into a foamy puddle on top. Very minimal lacing not a whole lot but it is there.

Smell- Very floral and earthy. Some citrus hop essence with a slight malt graininess in the background.

Taste- Nice hop punch up front followed by the nice floral and citrus tones. Not as bitter as I thought it would be but it makes up for it by having a nice balance. There are some biscuity characters in the finish.

Mouthfeel- Crisp and light carbonation dance across the pallete nicely. Perfect body it has a good smooth feel as well.

Drinkability- This is one of my favorite IPAs at the moment. It goes down well but not chugable which means it is perfect. I like beers that you can sip and enjoy. The alcohol doesn't seem to be an issue with this beer. All in all a good beer worthy of try. I look forward to trying some of DFHs other offerings.

Nice and clean drinking, not much aftertaste. I like this one better than Ranger IPA which I like better than Deschutes brewery Mirror Pond IPA. (all three which I had in same session). Anyway the Dogfishhead was the winner. Mirror Pond kind of flat...

I would drink this again but its probably not my top 5 favorite beers.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass

A - hazy yellow with a white foamy head about a finger and a half. Just a little cloudy off the pour.

S - Good floral character in the smell, you get it as soon as you open the bottle

T - Well balanced. DFH 60 has a nice hop bite (not over the top), and yet the citrus smell backs off in the taste, more of a piney flavor with the fruit in the back. Even more surprising is the malt flavor in the back, it comes on at the end and adds a richness to balance the hops.

M - Good solid mouthfeel to this beer

D - I can sit back with these all afternoon. Got a few different beers for the first round of the NCAA's for myself and a few friends, this one went over very well, I ended up going back to this for most of the day.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - A clear golden/orange color with a big foamy head with good retention, leaves lacing.

Smell - Flowers, citrus and biscuits malt with little yeast.

Taste - Floral, a bit fruity, citric fresh hops backed by biscuit malt, some metal in the taste but not in a bad way. Quite well balanced, finishes with a lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel - A bit dry finish, medium/light body and crisp.

Excellent IPA for the beginner and connoisseur alike. Very drinkable, light and flowery. Amazingly complex hop smell and flavor without being over-powering or too bitter. Light in color, and easy going at a mere 6% abv (which is one of the lowest Dogfish Head offers).

The 60 minute can easily be found at most grocery stores in Ohio where I live and is quickly becoming a permanent handle offered at many of the better bars around the state. The biggest downside is the seemingly steep price (often 9.99 for a six pack).

Just as good on tap or out of the bottle, even had it at the brewpub in DE. This is always a great beer for me but I highly prefer the 90 minute and the prized Burton Baton over the 60 min.

Side note: all of the regular Dogfish Head IPAs (60, 90, 120 minute) are brewed using a unique continual hopping process during a boil that lasts for as long as each beer's name implies. This provides a very unique and instantly recognizable hop flavor to the Dogfish beers. This method is actually patented by the brewery creating a flavor that no other brewery can directly match. I could also include the 75 minute and Burton Baton though both are blends that include some of the aforementioned beers.

Poured from a bottle into a Chimay tulip.

A- Pours a clear golden/orange hybrid color. Very thin white head that quickly faces. Minimal lacing.

S- Bitter hops. Can't really place what I'm getting, though it smells a little flowery.

T- I'm getting a ton of orange peel, various other flowery hops. Its very complex tasting...theres a lot here that I just cannot put my finger (well, tongue in this case) on.

M- Its really light and pleasant. Not overly bitter or sweet...just right.

D- This is pretty great. I've always heard that DFH has made a great IPA, and I'm a fullblown believer now. Can't wait to try 90 & 120 minute

Poured into a pinot noir glass.
Bottled: 12/09 Drank: 03/10

A: Golden-Orange with "3/4 head. NO lacing.

S: Bright, dry, hoppy. Hint of citrus rind. A little flowery. Hint of metal and cedar. Tiny hint of toast. Probably would be brighter if it were younger.

T: Balanced. On the subtle side in an almost elegant way. Piney/grassy in a good way. None of the sweetness you get from the 90min & 120min. 90% crisp and dry, but not too bitter with a hint of toasty malt in the finish. Dry-hopped flavors. Hint of toast.

M: Perfectly balanced. On the heavier side of light bodied. Slightly silky. Leaves a nice, fresh green herbal flavor that lasts. Elegant.

D: All day long! This just might be my favorite IPA.

IPA FOR GROWN-UPS :) !!!

12 oz. bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A - Pours an opaque honey color with a 1 inch head that slowly fizzles down to a small cap. The lacing on this beer was very good and ran down the whole glass as I sipped the beer.

S - Beer smells of citrusy and piney hops.

T - Taste is mellow hops with a very mild bitterness and biscuit like malt.

M - Beer is crisp and clean with good carbonation.

D - This was a very refreshing and easy drinking beer. I am not a huge fan of IPAs but this was something I would buy again.

A: appears a clear bright golden color with foamy white head, some lacing

S: sweet malts come through first followed by a deep earthy hop profile with notes of pine, the aroma is somewhat subdued at time of serving, the spicy hops come through more as it warms

T: Pine, spruce, and herbal hop notes on the front with a huge malty backbone. Very well balanced IPA that isn't all hops.

MF: medium body, medium carbonation

D: this IPA is very well balanced and makes for a nice sessionable brew.

This beer poured a nice cloudy amber with an initial two finger width head. Later settling to a half finger width head. Additionally, there was some lacing on the glass. The smell of the beer was hops and citrus. The initial taste was that of hops, citrus and possibly some floral notes. This seemed like a somewhat light to medium (more light than medium) bodied brew. This is definitely a great tasting IPA and one of my favorites.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a SA perfect pint

A: Pours a nice golden color with a clean white head. Head is about a finger and a half that recedes slowly with some decent lacing.

S: As expected hops, mainly citrus.

T: Definitely an IPA, lots of citrus and floral hops.

M: Medium bodied with a clean finish.

D: Pretty sessionable beer I think. Not my personal favorite IPA but I'll probably pick this up again.

(a) Poured into pint with good amount of thick white head. Dark red amber/carmel color, good amount of carbonation, translucence is pretty standard of IPA's. Love that lacing left on the glass! (4/5)

(s) Smells like an IPA, which I guess is why Im a lil dissapointed. As much as this stuff is hyped I expected a bit much more, but pretty standard. Floral hops, grapes. (3.5/5)

(t) Excelltent taste. Great hop flavor with other tastes of grapes anf fruit. (4.5/5)

(m) Great mouthfeel. Perfect carbonation, this is an IPA that I wouldn't mind pairing with food. Hits the pallete front to back. (4.5/5)

(d) As far as drinkability goes it's hard to tell. I've had other IPA's that pair well with food, but this is one of the highest quality that I would return to over and over during a meal. Great. (4/5)

60 minute IPA is a rosey translucent amber with thick off-white head. A bold hop aroma faintly vinous, reminiscent of a riesling. Very well balanced, not too overbearing on the hops. A floral hops taste plays with a very vinous sweetness. It's very well-carbonated giving a slightly silky mouthfeel.

This is a very easy drinking, pleasant IPA for any occasion. I would like a little more hop character. I do love the very different red grape tones in this. Definitely not what you would expect from a beer.
