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!

1/10/09, DFH 60 min IPA, 6.0 ABV, bottle>Imperial Pint Glass, 209 cals p12os
A - 5.0 - Perfect 2 finger head, fluffy with a variety of foam/bubble sizes. Light amber/copper color, noticeable carbonation, excellent head retention.
S - 4.5 - hoppy aroma but sweet. Somewhat mild on aroma for an IPA, followed but various notes of toffee/malt/citrus
T - 5.0 - Malty hop balance. Spot on for a very enjoyable IPA in my opinion. A perfect mix of hops and malt for a very "balanced" IPA that really is right on in my book!
MF - 5.0 - Medium carbonation, Medium+ body
D - 5.0- This is on of my favorite IPAs to date, balanced but hoppy and not to strong for sessions @ 6.0% ABV!

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

Pours clear amber, with a very whispy, thin white head, and lacing from top to bottom.

Aroma is a bit of caramel, biscuity malt, citrus and pine hops.

Taste is a combination of big, malty body, bread and biscuit, not overly sweet, combined with the firm pine and citrus hit of the hops at the end, though the bitterness waits to come on in the finish. Excellent, well balanced IPA -- went great with steak fajitas.

12oz bottle into a standard pint glass. 2 month old bottle. Have not had this in years.

A- 60 minute pours out a bronze golden color with a 3/4 inch white head that stayed up for a few minutes. A skim of foam remains at the surface leaving spotty lace. I can see through the glass, not hazy.

S- The continuous hop method shows its colors here as i get a lot of hops giving of more floral aroma's then citrus, Some malt that gives off bready aromas, some yeast.

T- Starts off with a nice cookie like taste from the malts backed by some slight bitter hop action. A switch from the usual. Some citrus flavors all around with a earthy finish somewhat grassy.

M- Light to semi medium body with good carbonation. An equal mix of malts and hops make this an easy drinker. No trace of alcohol with a bit of a metallic taste in the end while finishing dry.

D- Very drinkable and session worthy at a nice price. One of the more drinkable beers out of the DFH lineup. This is not as good as I thought it was 5+ years ago when i loved it. Perhaps my palette changed or the recipe has, or a bad bottle. Anyway give this one a go

A~ Clear and light copper in color. Nice 2 finger head. No visible carbonation.

S~ Sounds weird but it smelled like celery. lol! Weird but ok I guess. Maybe the correct term is earthy.

T~ Hops and bitterness. Floral and citrus flavor all at once. Very good.

MF~ Holy Hops!

D~ Solid. If you like hops then go buy a six pack of this beer as soon as you can. I enjoyed it.

A - poured a golden browny/orange. Head was more than plentiful, lacing was weaker.

S - I could smell a pineness as I popped it. After that though it was fairly malty. Some bready tones.

T - not as hoppy as I was expecting. A great balance between hops and malts.ome citrusy tones also.

DM - was perfectly carbonated along with the balance made it more drinkable than I was expecting. A great beer and near session status.

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

A - Pours a one and a half finger head that is white and frothy in appearance. The body is a clean golden brown color and there is some minimal carbonation.

S - Hops, citrus and other earthy tones. Typical IPA smell. Nothing too outstanding but solid.

T - Hops, piney citrus and a slight bitterness

M - Hops and citrus hit your mouth first with a decent transition to a slightly bitter finish.

D - Aside from the bitterness this is a decent IPA. There are ones as good or better for cheaper in my area but it was still fun to try.

12oz bottle poured into a Perfect Pour glass. Pours a nice huge white head with a lace that sticks to the side of the glass. The colour is an reddish-orange hue. Pine, pine and more pine did I say some pine and some grapefruit. Their is a slick oily feel from the hops that coats the tongue. This is a very nice classic IPA with enough malt backbone to balance out the piney hops.

Pours a clear golden orange with a thin head.
Retention was brief.

Offerred a decent smell, though not really that hoppy. More of an orangey hop nose with notable sweetness.

Taste is pleasant and slightly bitter yet not overwhelming in any regard. Rather viscous in feel and with an oily sweetness. A bit chalky in the finish and a bit dry. Overall offers a mild hop nose with moderate sweetness not unlike many an APA.

A: Pours a decent golden/yellow color, with a small white foam head. Head retention did not last long, some spotty lacing

S: Lots of hops, mostly citrus with some waves of pine. Very abundant and sweet smelling.

T: Lots of hops flavors, grapefruit, citrus, pine with some very small malt undertones that really bring this beer together.

M: A very light body beer, left the mouth clean and not overly bitter.

D: A lower ABV, makes have more than one of this very tasty IPA enjoyable.

A- A perfectly clear yellow color with a creamy white head that is about half a finger thick with decent retention. Kind of limp looking for the style.

S- Slightly floral, and a bit of sweetness. There was a distinct barley aroma as well.

T- Sweet malt with a nice floral taste. Not outstandingly complex, but this kind of reminds me of an old school IPA.

M- A nice carbonation level is a nice hoppy oiliness and dryness on the tail end.

D- A solid IPA that you can never go wrong with. I miss being in Maryland and getting this really fresh on tap.

This smells of citrus and hops which dominates. A really nice spruce/pine aroma also which is very pleasant. The taste is exactly this as well. A nice dominant hops and mild bitterness. A slight malty sweetness come through the hops which helps to lessen the bitterness.

The best IPA I've had to date. The hops makes a huge presence, but the malt helps to balance this one out a good bit.

Clear yellow/orange with a nice small bubble white head, good lacing.

Smells of noble hops and a decent malt, taste is the same with the hops tingling the tongue and malt finishing it dryly at the end. Not very complex, a nice simple IPA.

Not heavy or light, just right with slickness, a very solid IPA for the money.

A a clear golden color with a big white rocky head.Aroma is piny with oganges,spice and toasty grain,and this tiny hint of toffee or caramel. Flavor starts sweet and slides to a spicy citrus and floral end. A nice hoppy bitter finish,but not dry or sticky,yet a medium mouthfeel,just the right amount of carbonation. A very well crafted beer. Wish I had more.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Huge thanks go out to a buddy of mine in Atlanta for bringing me a variety of Dogfish Head brews that I can't get here in South Carolina.

This pours a clear golden amber with some hints of orange. Big foamy off-white head.

Big citrus/hop presence in the nose. Grapefruit, tangerine, orange, and big-time pine.

Bitter grapefruit taste, but tons of sweetness from the citrus and malts to balance it out. Slight lingering bitter aftertaste.

Medium bodied and refreshing. This is one fine IPA.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Doesn't look like anything special when poured into my glass. No head or lacing. Pretty much reminds me of the way any old domestic pilsner looks apart from being slightly darker

Smells hoppy as hell; no surprise. something fruity there as well. I can't describe it to a T, but it's definetely citrus. A hint of grapefruit possibly?

This is pretty much everything that I want in an IPA, tastewise. The malts are very subtle, but definetely are dominated by the hops, which are like an onsluaght and stick around for awhile after the last sip of the beer. There is that distinct intital sweetness before the hop earthquake on the palate. Thereis a point, right before the intensly hoppy ipa finish that reminds me a lot of a british ESB kind of a thing. This ones sharp and smooth with an appropriate bite.

I could drink a whole lot of these, but one is perfect with some spicy curry as well. I doubt I would choose to drink with this one without the appropriate food, but it seems to be one of those that you don't wanna stop drinking once you've gotten the right start

Pours a clear caramel-yellow color with a nice, big 3cm white head.

Not terribly compelling. A bit of pine, and something which is a bit off. More malt than hops on the nose. A bit non-descript.

Medicinal, not very much good hop character. Too bitter for the lack of hop profile. Not terrible, but not good, and nowhere near as good as the 90 minute.

Nice and clean palate. Good carbonation. A bit thin, but smooth.

The off/medicinal/bitter flavors don't help this one go down.

Unfortunately the best part about this was the appearance. I don't think I'll be buying this one again.

Appearance: light amber, clear carbonated, small head

Smell: small hops, pine, and a strong smell of weak coffee--

Taste: light grafefruit, citrus, and some hazelnut coffee

Mouthfeel: smooth, light, mostly smooth, with s slightly bitter middle

Drinkability: I like this. It is different from most IPAs. It hits citrus without being bitter. I know it is high abv, but I could almost session this. This is a wonderfully drinkable beer. The best Dogfish I have had to date.

Orangish brown with a thick tan head. The nose has a bouquet of fresh hops along with a solid malt profile. Well balanced flavor has sweet bready malts accompanied by bitter fruity hops. Medium to full body is well carbonated. A great brew from Dogfish and one of the better IPA's around.

The IPA that introduced me into the style. The beer pours a lighter color than many other American IPAs, a clear gold that doesn't quite get to copper. The head is offwhite and leaves an impressive curtain of lacing. The smell is (surprise) citrus and not overpowering. The taste is outstanding, just what an IPA should be. Strong hop presence without killing the palate with bitterness. For this reason, the mouthfeel is very good. The drinkability is also great. I could drink these things all night.

Pours a very clear orange copper with a large off-white creamy head featuring larger bubbles.

A strong floral citrus aroma and a hint of pine hanging around.

An aggressive citrus hop flavor with a balancing sweet bread taste that tones it down. The hops provide a bit of a bitter aftertaste.

Medium body brew, well balanced with active carbonation.

A beer to sit and enjoy. Well crafted with good flavor and is sharp but not overpowering.

12 oz bottle Pours a clear gold with a touch of orange. Off-white head. Nose contains lots of citrus (orange, grapefruit, lemon), with a light malty background. Flavor is much the same, with hints of floral hops and a touch of pine in the finish. Fairly bitter, but not so much that it ruins your palate. Medium mouthfeel. Overall, a fantastic IPA.

I don't know why it has taken me so long to try this beer, but I finally decided to part with the 2 bucks that it cost me at a local bottle shop.

Poured into my Penn State Pint glass, It pours a very high carbonated clear pale orange. The white head rests at 2 fingers and dissipates rather quickly. All in all, this beer looks like a pretty easy drink.

The smell is on the light side. Some floral and citrus notes are the most prevalent characteristics. Some grains and very light caramels are apparent as well.

The taste is dry but refreshing. A very nice bite from the citrus and dry hops. Very clean sip and finish. Not a hop bomb, but hops trounce on every other aspect of this beer in a good way. Some nice lemon flavors are noticeable. All in all, an easy drink and would not hesitate to have again, and would love to try it on tap.

Serving: 12oz bottle served in a pint glass at 50 degrees F. I believe when people serve beer too cold you miss out on the scent, taste & head.

Appearance: Light amber color with a one inch thick head when poured firmly into the glass at 50*F. Nice lacing and carbonation. Slightly cloudy from the dissolved solids.

Smell: Great with loads of hops, pine , nuts and unusual coffee hints.

Taste: Awesome bitter hops, crisp citrus , juniper / pine dryness. Thick juicy malt balance takes second place to the victorious hops.

Mouthfeel: Crisp refreshing medium light body. Wakes up your tongue with its tangy hops and nice carbonation.

Drinkability: Refreshing and easy to drink.
Pairs very well with most foods.

The flavor is complex and satisfying. A very unique IPA one of my favorite refrigerator guests. They do not stay around very long though. Thanks DFH for this kick ass brew.

On tap at Old Havana Cigar Co in Cartersville, GA. Poured into pint glass. Pale golden in color with an aroma of fresh hops. Thin off white head that quickly diminishes. Taste of mildly citrusy hops that give to a small malty character. Not high in ABV so it is easy to drink more than a few. Very good session beer. Not as strong as 90 min but still quite tasty. I highly recommend it to everyone who hasn't had it before. Cheers
