60 Minute IPA60 Minute IPA
Notes: 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!

Nice golden brown color with a simple head. Citrusy hops and floral notes. Sweet malty flavor with a slight hops bitterness. Medium body without too much carbonation. A very nice IPA that is always a go to.

Poured from bottle into a tulip glass is a light beige foam head of about 2F settling to a soft 1F cover. The beer is an almost clear gold color with effervescence form center bottom of glass etch.

Nose is restrained with a wisp of grapefruit hops, fruit, and floral notes.

A soft bitter note hits the taste buds immediately followed by a slippery smooth honeyed malt. A light grapefruit bitterness rounds up the finish which comes off as slightly astringent.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, silky smooth, and slick. The carbonation stand out on the tongue and adds a sharpness to contrast the slight stickiness. The bitterness is mild and not too long lasting.

Another highly regarded IPA that is impressive and balanced. The bitterness rides on top of the slippery malt to ease drinkability. I like it and spent some time comparing to Two Hearted which is a little bolder in flavor profile.

Tried it but I had had 90 minute first and, for me, there was no comparison. 90 Minute is one of the really great beers that is readily available. Many better IPA’s than 90 but very few are this readily available. 90 is A wonderful go to brew, 60 not so much.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a 16 oz pint glass.

Look: Light orange color. Good amount of slightly off-white head that lasted several minutes.

Aroma: Slightly toasty malt base is prominent. Good mix of piney and citrusy hop aromas come through very well.

Taste: Mild sweetness from the malt base. Medium bitterness from the hops brings a good balance of flavor. Bitterness lingers.

Feel: Medium-light body with a medium carbonation. No astringency noted from either hops nor alcohol.

Overall: A well-balanced west coast style IPA. Tastes great and never fails to satisfy.

Bottled 5/20/20.

Hazy golden with a small white head that doesn’t linger too long. Strong pine and resin, citrus. Aggressive bitterness with clean finish. Nothing extraordinary, but your classic west coast IPA taste and feel that won’t disappoint.

When poured from a bottle has a 1/4 inch foamy head with a yellowish golden color. A slight hop aroma.at first taste has a slight malt flavor with a bite of mild citrus rush. A dry finish that keeps you thirsty for one more !

Hoppy dank pine nose, dark golden color, smooth and balanced malt to bitterness, trading off with each other on the palate. Can't believe it took me this long to finally drink this one. I will drink more.

Pours golden yellow with a 1 inch thick, foamy white head. Moderate lacing.

Aroma of pine, grapefruit, lemon, floral.

Taste is pine, grapefruit, lemon. Resinous.

Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

Dogfish doesn't disappoint. An excellent IPA.

Poured from a can -clear medium gold with thick white head leaving significant frosty lacing. Nose is slightly hoppy with some sweet malt notes. Taste follows with a bit more malt and a slight hop bite then an almost dry finish. More along the lines of a classic WC ipa than the NE stuff out now.

Nice amber pour with significant but quickly dissipating off-white head, some of which is left on the inside of the glass. A pleasant hoppy bouquet carries nicely into the taste. The hop delivery is on the dry side, not overly bitter, with an enjoyable linger. It drinks a little thin on the pallet, despite it's nice dose of hops.

12oz can from the variety pack

Agressive pour gives a big ole head that sticks around, cloudy but clear of 'chunks'. Smells like freshly cut grass. Tastes 'green'. Leafy, greasy and sweet. Ton of malt that almosts outshadows the hops.

This tastes great, dwarfed by modern IPAs but still high quality

L- orange like translucent with nice foamy white head. Great retention

S- citrus and grapefruit on the nose with a slight malt character

T- smooth bitterness with definite citrus and grapefruit qualities. Light and smooth with a malt presence behind the hops to make it very drinkable. More flavorful as it warms up a bit

F- perfect prickliness from carbonation and medium bodied to make a very drinkable beer

O- solid ipa but not super unique. I might purchase again depending on the price

Bought a 6-pack cans $11.99 Whole Foods
43 days old
Smell of citrus hops, pine
Clear golden, amber tinged color
Medium-light mouthfeel
Medium-high carbaontion
Clean bitterness taste. Lighter than I expected.
Overall a good beer. Seems well made, but not outstanding. The high price will keep me from buying it again.

Bottled 3/20/20

Just realized I’ve never actually reviewed this American classic, as I usually just have it at bars

Pours a clear copper orange with 2 slowly settling fingers of soapy white head, just a bit of lacing

Aromas of zesty citrus, wheat, piney hops and caramel malts. Nothing too overbearing, great aroma

The lemony citrus and pine come through strong in the beginning of the sip, getting a bit more oily as the sip progresses, before finishing with lightly bitter hops

Medium bodied with very mild carbonation, this is rather still, but refreshing nonetheless with a mostly dry finish

It’s funny to me, seeing a beer I generally take for granted get rated so high by me. It’s always a solid option and widely available in bars and restaurants so I never really think twice about getting it, but keeping some of this at home would probably be a good idea for me. A classic for a reason

Poured out of 12oz bottle into a frosty mason jar glass.
Looks like beer..a straw hat like hazy yellow. Nice creamy head. Not much lacing.
Smells ok.. not as Hoppy as the craft brew Ipas.
Taste is in your face bitter hops. Lingers long after swallow. Too soapy and bitter. There is Nothing up front. It's very dry.
Ovrrall.. It's ok. But for the price I'm going to stick with my local IPAs.

A nice standard, not as bitter as 90 minute, friendly if having varied company who are not beer lovers for a bbq, but might want to try something new, not a mistake to take to a bbq, people will respect the choice. Consistent. Solid.

Starting out im not a big IPA guy but this isn't that bad. Mellow fruity smell, with some earthyness. As far as taste it was smooth not as bitter as some IPA's I have tried, imo it has a slight skunky/earthy taste but not offputting. Cant speak to look as I drank it from the can.

Like that it is citrusy but it's not as well-balanced as other IPAs. It also felt heavy in my belly, which will make me not want to drink it in the future.

Poured in a Teku glass, it is lacy with little head. Medium carbonation. Nose is aromatic, very gentle and fresh. Taste of melon, grapefruit, and a little grain. Overall, it is extremely balanced and leaves no bitter aftertaste. Definitely a must-try IPA; one of my top 3.

Depending on your location in the world, if you come across this beer you 'need' to try it. There are very few beers that changed my perception and expectations for what a crafted beer should be, and DFH 60 was the first in their series of continuously hopped beers that changed my perception of a great beer.

Pours a lovely semi-unfiltered golden-orange with a decent 2 finger all-white head, light bubbling from a 12 oz fl brown bottle.

The smell includes a lot of pine, citrus, and mainly hoppy resin character with a rich caramel smell as the backbone.

Tasting notes include upfront smooth caramel malt, with mid notes of a tingly acidic hop juice, finishing smooth pinch of hops and carbonation. I get a bit of citrus grapefruit and pine as mentioned in its smell and bread.

Mouthfeel is acidic on the tongue, with a mild soapy feel in the drink itself.

Looks nice in the glass, a deep copper with some lacing. Smells like shit. Just a terrible smell. Don't smell it or buy it if you like good smelling beers, imho. Taste is very nice, a mix of a good red ale and a light, citrousy IPA. Mouthfeel is nice too.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip.

Pours crystal-clear orange-gold. Good head, but quickly gone. Thin but persistent lacing.

Classic but restrained hop aromas. Pine, citrus, hints of dank. Very subdued, however.

The brew has solid IPA flavors as well, with a bit more assertiveness. A touch of pale and caramel malt sweetness quickly steps aside for equal parts citrus and resin goodness A clean finish.

The brew feels down-the-middle medium in weight and finish.

I can't help but wonder if this one was getting a little "long in the tooth" (bottled in late December, and it's nearly mid-February, so getting close to 45 days). The hop flavors didn't pop like others have described. Then again, I've had the 75 and 90-minute varieties with consistently good results. Still, an excellent brew.

Drinking this at Tapped a local tap house.
Appears Amber, hazy orangish, nice white head that dropped quickly.
Smells citrusy, piney, orange, grapefruit.
Taste follows the nose, vanilla on top of citrus.
Mouth feel is medium light for the style.
Overall, The Classic Dogfish IPA, which I've ordered many times before and will definitely order again.

Finally caught a 6-er of these on the corner, fill dated 11 21 19. into the IPA glass..
Rich golden gold body, very slight haze, rising bubbles, 2 finger white head of fine white foam falls and leaves good lacing.

Smells AMAZING! A burst of fresh juicy bubblegum inspired hop aroma is one of the finest yet. Pine notes, florals, etc. just so many good things going on in the nose!

Follows the nose to a point, in a way that works really well; abundant hop tones blend perfectly with citrus and pine over a firm base of malt body, while the feel is just as excellent! Living up to the score and rep!!!

Overall, YES! Highly recommended and just check the date first! ONE AWESOME IPA

I'm not sure how to review this -

At a restaurant (a tap pull) I got one bright, clean, nicely carbonated personality; from a bottle I got 'just another IPA' not equal to some other bottled NEIPA's I buy. Caveat emptor! (Please note - I only buy bottles; as brewers are shifting to cans because it's cheaper, I have just started to make my own. First pull is still three weeks away.)
