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!

3.85/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

Appears a rather flat looking orange-gold color with a half inch off-white head that sinks to a thin skim quite quickly.

Aroma has some caramel malts, nuttiness, and quite a bit of pine with some spiciness and a very light citrus tone.

The taste is hoppy right from the start with a heavy nuttiness and light caramel malt flavor. The hops are pretty intense with lots of pine and spiciness. For once an IPA without much citrus character.

Mouthfeel is medium, very crisp, almost harsh, but still pretty drinkable.

This is certainly a very different IPA than everything else out there. It works well but the harsh carbonation hurts it a bit. Wouldn't be my first three choices for IPAs but if you haven't had it yet I would recommend trying it at least once.

This was a nice simple IPA. I wold recommend this to someone trying to learn about beer. This is not a wimpy beer but a bit simple for a strong IPA drinker. For the style of beer it was an impressive beer. Great color and aroma and a nice bittery bit. A very nice nightly beer.

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

Pours a clear light copper with a one finger head. Great lacing on the glass.

The aroma is pure grapefruit. Citrus hops, orangepeel.

The taste is sweet and malty at first. This turns into a refreshing bitter citrus hop character. Orange, grapefruit floral hops. The finish is bitter and the aftertaste is also bitter. Good depth of flavour. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and the carbonation is medium soft. Im happy its not too carbonated.

Highly drinkable, and more balanced than I expected.

From Notes:

A nice gold color with a white head. There is good lacing as well. The nose is a nice hop. The flavor is slight bitter not much but slight. It's an ok flavor but there is a touch of an aftertaste. Overall a decent beer, there are better examples out there now.

Bottle from Monks Cafe in Center City Philadelphia.

Pours a clear dark amber color with a thick foamy white head. Aroma is dominated by citrus and floral hops. Excellently well-balanced quaffable IPA with enormous hop flavor and a nice malty backbone. Bitter throughout with a nice sweet malty balance and dry finish.

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

Pours a clear copperish/amber color with a 2 finger head. There is a good amount of lacing left on the glass.

Smells kind of woody with some floral notes.

Starts off with a malty sweetness backed up with the woody and floral taste. Just enough bitterness, doesn't leave an aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is medium, not heavy not light. Not too much carbonation either.

I could easily plow through a six pack if I don't control myself.

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

Pours a nice reddish orange color, with a white head that dissipates into some nice lacing. Nice color with continuous bubbling.

Smell was a touch fruity, slightly woody as well.

Taste starts a bit malty, very light bit of citrus in there. Finishes hoppy, but not overly so. I am not a big fan of IPAs, but this one is pretty good, the hops don't overwhelm like they do in some I've tried. Definitely a cut above other IPAs I've tried.

Mouthfeel was decent, not weak, but not as thick as some. A bit of a lingering hoppy aftertaste.

Was drinkable for an IPA, but being as this is my least favorite style of beer, that would limit what I would drink. Still, this is my favorite IPA.

pours a nice light amber color. a decent one finger creamy white head appears on the pour. settles down to a centimeter or so of perma-foam. a steady fresh supply of bubbles continue up the center of my glass. nice amount of lacing. im excited.

smell is great. im getting woody notes. some slight citrus, a decent floral nose.

taste is great. im not used to trying east coast ipa's but if they are like this i think im a fan. semi sweet candy-ish malt up front. plays well with a nice woody flavor. its not oak. its not pine. not sure what it is but i like it. i have to push this one away to keep from guzzling it down.

mouth is medium bodied. carbonation plays a nice role.

drinks VERY easily. a bit high to be a session beer but i can see myself polishing off a few of these in a night. now to get on the hunt to find some more.

Definately going to a "go to" IPA. It poured a nice bright copper with just enough foam to satisfy those head retention freaks out there. Good malt balance and so far no bitter hoppy after taste that usually lingers with most IPA's. I have actually this beer on several occasions but am just now getting around to reviewing it. Cheers!

poored a bright golden yellow, little head to speak of mainly just a film with more buildup around the edges leaves some nice bubbly lacing
smells of grapefruit and floral hops
tastes of the same aforementioned hops with much bitterness/acidity which gives a bit of a metallic after taste
light crisp kind of dries the mouth out a bit
not usually much for IPA's but was given one and I liked it enough to finish it and will likely at some point when I'm feeling hoppy will seek out the others - 75 90 and 120...

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

Appearance: Light yellowish orange body with average white head.

Smell: The dominating fruit aroma was the most surprising and my personal favorite aspect of this brew. I picked up a whiff somewhere along the lines of pineapple, peach, and pear. There is also a light yeast aroma in there.

Flavor: Fairly sweet and bitter, but not overly so. Well balanced IPA.

Mouthfeel: Average body for an IPA. A non-dominant finish, lasting a while but not overwhelming.

Drinkability: Fairly high, great with a light and fatty meal such as wings or fried fish. Will have again.

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

Appearance: Clear gold/yellow. Lots of carbonation from what I can see.

Aroma: Piney and hoppy. Sounds simple, but I'd say the aroma is pretty upfront. Good

Taste: Very hoppy. Bitter, but not overdone

Mouthfeel: Ah, this feels nice. Coating is good, smooth doing down.

Drinkability: Pretty drinkable, tastes good, nice mouthfeel. Recommended as an IPA

had a single bottle of this, found it to be a very worth while ipa. nice pale yellow flavor slightly into light amber. nice frothy head that is thing but sticks around. smells of a great ipa, floral scents as well as the strong aroma of hops; classic smell one looks for when sniffing out an ipa. taste is great, nice mouthfeel light but smooth; not too bubbly. nice buttery coat at first, finish dry with a good amount hops, just enough not to make it too bitter. drinkability i found to be great with this brew. i could see myeslf ordering these at bar all night, great flavor but nothing to much that really leaves too much of a trace on the palate. the alcohol is a bit high but drinking them all night certainly will leave someone having a good night; certainly doable.

The beer poured a moderately lacquer-colored, yellowish-orange color and possesses the immediate appearance of a medium IPA. However, to smell, taste, and allow this beer to quantify in your mouth is to encounter a completely different animal. This 60 minute IPA has the capacity to deconstruct in your mouth and unleash bold flavors that are uncommon to one's typical IPA. It is at once obtrusively hop-centric and at the same time uninterested in the lack of drinkability common in overly-hoppy beers. This beer is extraordinarily well-balanced and although not as worthy as the 90 minute, is superbly more drinkable.

I smell a hint of pine with some floral notes that I can't pinpoint.

Taste is solid pine and hops with hints of fruit. Very good tasting IPA.

Feels quite thin in the mouth with good carbonation, but all around very smooth.

This is a very drinkable IPA, goes down so well. Good session brew, I think I'll have another.

Had this from a bottle at Fleming's Steakhouse in Tucson, AZ.

Pours a nice clear copper, marginal head and lacing

Smell is slightly citrus, with hint of sweetness

Taste was very well balanced. Bitter enough to let you know its an IPA but not overdone. Good warm alcohol finish.

Mouthfeel was good, smooth and reasonably thick.

Very drinkable, I enjoyed 3 with dinner. Would make a good session beer.

Wish this was available in St. Louis. Its a nice beer.

3.38/5  rDev -17.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Gold with an amber tint. Very clear, almost looks like a lager. Starts off with a nice rocky head that diminishes somewhat quickly.

Smell - Not overwhelmingly hoppy and not as hoppy as I have come to expect from an IPA. More piney than citrusy.

Taste - Pretty drinkable, though the hops are more apparent here than in the nose. Refreshingly piney hop flavor. Feels like it almost gains bitterness in the finish. Stays on the palate for a while. The alcohol is pretty apparent and it's only 6% abv.

Overall - Not bad. Nothing remarkable, but not bad. I look forward to their other IPAs, some time later.

S - Nice floral hops with a good malty sweetness note. Very aromatic.

T - Hops and sweet floralness, Clean flavor profile that is appropriately uncomplicated. It is what it is, and it is good.

A - Dogfish has just the clearness to their beers down. This is beautiful.

S - Great smell of a varity of hops.

T - Like you are being slapped in the faced with 20 ibu's of love.

M - Great flavor while not feeling to heavy.

D - I could have these everyday. But it is dinner beer. It need something to balance the bitter.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a cervoise.

Appearance: Very nice copper/amber color with an off-white head.

Smell: Nice aroma of grapefruit from the hops.

Taste: More citrus and grapefruit in the taste. This is much more malty than other IPAs I have had.

Overall, I have to say this has to be my favorite IPA.

Had this at Neighbor's in Atlanta.

Pours a clear light copper color with a one-finger white head. The head sticks around for a while before receding into a patchy layer of bubbles on top and a medium-sized ring around the glass. Lacing is decent.

Smells of light grapefruit aromas and sweet malt. Nothing's too strong, but it's still inviting.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Mild grapefruit joined by sweet malt up front, with a good amount of bitterness at the end.

Mouthfeel is good. Good thickness and carbonation, very smooth.

Drinkability is very good. A very sessionable beer - the ABV is relatively low and the flavors are mild but well-balanced.

Overall this one never disappoints. Give it a shot if you haven't already.

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

A - brilliantly clear, light orange colour, white head, good retention, and a bit of lace left behind.

S - clean, crackery malt, touch of caramel, light citrus hop aroma

T - good dose of juicy hop flavour to start and continues til the end, but never harsh or agressive, very smooth and clean. Malt profile has some light sweetness, and more of that crackery biscuit that shows up nicely in the finish. Hops are mostly citrus although I get a bit of pine in the middle. Bitterness is also quite smooth and not overly done. Good mix of malt, bitterness and drying alcohol in the finish.

M - med body, med light carbonation, finish is relatively dry and snappy.

D - exceptionally clean and smooth, hops are present, but do not overpower tasty malt backbone.

Extreme? No. Tasty? Hell yes, and downright sessionable in my opinion. In the race to make the hoppiest, most bitter IPA, some folks forget that it still has to be a good beer. Dogfish Head does it right.

Thanks to NASH for the bottle!

Served in a pint glass, a orange gold color with a nice finger of foamy white head.

Smells like flowers and citrus fruit. The first whiff makes me want to gulp this brew.

Nice hoppy flavor with a tasty bitter finish. Just enough bitterness for an IPA, but not overpowering.

Nice and creamy mouth feel, smooth and full.

One of the most drinkable IPA's I've enjoyed. Left me wanting more.

Pours a clear golden orange color with a pillow of white foam that hangs out there for a while. Aggressive hop aroma mixed with grass.

It is a very floral and spicy beer. It is not simply overloaded with hops, but it does have quite a bit of hop presence to say the least. The hops hit hard and then balance to near perfection with pale malts and a bit of bread as it dries out toward the finish. It starts crisp, and I would like it to stay that way, but the carbonation dies as soon as it hits your tongue. This is one I could have a few of.

Very good IPA - its a amber blonde color with a nice head and nice lacing. There is something sharp in the smell that I don't like -- but its not in the taste - its tastes great. Mouthfeel isn't as full as I'd like - its a little thin, but good nonetheless. Easy and enjoyable drinker that has a lot of flavor. I like the Stone IPA the most, but this is quite good.
