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!

Needed a crisp, lighter break from my usual NE Impetial IPAs.
This is always a smooth, crisp, hoppy choice.
Also better chilled than the 90-minute, which is my sipping dessert choice.

I wanted to dislike this so I could say something along the lines of "60 Minute IPA? It took me as long to get through it". But it's actually fine. Now I have to write a new joke before the end of this review.

It pours clear gold with a lingering white head. Not much hop character on the nose. Instead, it smells rather sweet and malty with a hint of orange. When I first tasted it, I wasn't enthused. Over time, I warmed up to it. The hops are mostly dank and citrusy, but not overpowering. Some malt, caramel and biscuit, is able to poke its head out. It finishes bitter. You will definitely be tasting it into your next drink. Man, is it smooth! Even if you aren't a hop-head, you have to admit it's very easy-drinking. Carbonation is pretty-

Oh, I've got one! 60 minutes could save you 6% or more on ABV.

Pours a clear golden color with a thick cap of white head.
Caramel aroma with citrus peel and pine.
Slightly sweet caramel malt with orange peel and grapefruit. Finished with a pine bitterness. Very well balanced and smooth.
This is a delicious beer that has stood the test of time.

L: Pours a clear gold. White head with some retention. Nice lacing.

S: Not picking up much.

T: Much stronger than the nose. Bitter with a dry finish. Lingering bitterness.

F: Medium bodied; medium carbonation.

O: I’m surprised at the high rating. I’m pretty disappointed by this. May have gotten an old bottle.

Perfect balance of hop flavor and bitterness with a strong malt backbone. Still holds up after all these years. This is always consistent when fresh, and anyone giving this below a 4 is either drinking an older bottle, or they are a beer elitist. This is famous for a reason.

Solid. Not quite as appealing aroma or appearance wise as Two Hearted Ale. Not offensive in any way. Very nice feel. It's a mellow beer with enough flavor to keep you sipping. 6% ABV so one after work is perfect to stretch the life of a sixer throughout the week. Seems like everybody knows and loves it, so if you offer one to someone they won't look at you like you have lobsters crawling out of your ears. Looking forward to finding 90 and 120 minute IPAs for upcoming events. Drink it!

This seems to be a maltier IPA with less of the floral sweet and citrusy hops. A good contrast to the many others this summer. Near the end it's almost bock like.

To me, an old favorite, one of the first IPAs I tried, maybe 20 years ago (?) While it has been surpassed in my esteem my many others since then (including Dogfish 90) I still welcome the opportunity to drink a few. Kind of thin, kind of hoppy for my taste, but fun and refreshing.

Pours a yellow gold in color, similar to apple juice, with a bitchin two-finger off-white head that dissipates fairly quick. Smells resiny & piney upfront, not really smelling any malts for balance. Taste is much better, great quality hops, with the nice balance of malts to go with the bitterness of the beer. Medium-bodied, moderate carbonation, crisp, refreshing, clean, very drinkable.

This is a beautiful beer- great color, thick head, incessant carbonation, satisfying lacing. For me, the rest is perfectly drinkable but a bit disappointing. Some dank odors with a deep sniff. Good mouth feel and finish, but the part that hits the tongue is mildly bitter without much else.
Update from later in the six pack (over a few days)- the gentle taste has grown on me. This is a really sublime and good beer.

The beer is a dark straw with a finger of white head. The head gives way to a lace. The beer is very clear and transparent. The nose has a base of sweet malt. The malt is like a heavy bread. Hop wise there, the smell is piney and citrusy. Specifically the citrus character comes out as grapefruit and is overshadowed by the pine. On tasting, the malt and pine notes are strong at first. The hops become earthy and then spicy as the malt fades. At the end of the palate the malt comes back and blends smoothly the spicy and earthy hops. The aftertaste is bitter as expected. The mouthfeel is loose with somewhat soft water. It washes over your mouth well. The carbonation i strong and pleasant.

Thought it was about time someone reviewed this beer....oh, wait a minute; some have. Well, maybe I can offer something original....no, looks like all those bases are covered. Let's just say totally refreshing, widely available and reasonably priced. Maybe review the 90min next. Surely no ones been there yet.

Pours a hazy light amber thanks to a less than careful pour that got some lees. Punch grapefruit orange citrus and floral hops with a nice rich, biscuity malt base. Hint of pine, dankness. Flavor is similarly balanced between the two. Nicely bittered. Nice full mouthfeel.

12oz bottle. Stamped on bottle neck is best by date of 'Mar 2021'.
Clear, deep gold colored body. One finger of white head sticks around. Some jagged lines of lacing stick on glass.
Aroma of bready malt base with citrus and floral hops. Not very aromatic.
Taste is old school East Coast IPA, with low bitterness. Malt base, and floral, grassy, and citrus hops.
Medium mouth feel. Some hop numbness on the tongue. Very good carbonation. Fizzes well in the mouth.
Classic style and taste. Clearly hop driven but low in bitterness. Very drinkable. When I first drank this years ago, the excessive bitterness in IPAs was going on, and my impression was that this beer was lacking. With more experience I now recognize this as just a well made IPA, one to come back to again and again.

Drank from a 19oz can. Pours dark golden yellow (brown?) with a thick and lasting white foamy head. Nice hop / malt balance with notes of caramel and bread (I think... still finding my palate). Old school craft. Really good.

12 oz. bottle with a freshness date of May 2021: Poured a bright and clear golden hue with a sustained, foamy white-head. I was surprised to find this one so fresh and at only $6.99 a six-pack.

An explosion of refreshing, tropical fruit greeted the olfactory upon opening the bottle.

It has been quite a while since I imbibed a basic straight-forward IPA, i.e, one that is not hazy, fruity, and a double, triple or imperial IPA. As this is from a brewery that made its name with experimental beers, this is quite impressive. Very strong flavors of mango, and orange, and mild grapefruit keep this one refreshing, while the hop profile is never bitter. For 6 percent ABV, this is dangerously quaffable.

It is has been years since I drank this one; I'll have to remember this is quite an impressive interpretation of an American IPA, especially at that price.

C: Clear, golden, nice head retention with big bubbles that come to a cap pretty quickly, nice cascading, almost no carbonation through the beer

S: Hoppy IPA smell, greeny grassy smell with touch of lemon fruity esters

T: Light hoppy, grassy, lemony, malty (bready biscuit) finish. Very good and much hoppier than the 90 min that I am used too. Not boozy at all, not very yeasty, but there is definitely a malty bready finish

F: Light, not effervescent, not pungent, not mouth coating, not oily yet not creamy, very smooth and very drinkable

Overall: wonderful hoppy flavor, affordable, fresh (10/21/2020) not much to dislike about this American IPA, it represents its style very well I give it a 95

Poured a honey gold from a bottle with a thin white head and minimal lacing. Nose of grapefruit and honey is very faint. Taste of grass, honey malt and citrus. Piney hops is pronounced and lingers on the finish. Moderate body and carbonation. Fairly drinkable but no wowie zowie here.

On draught. Good 3 finger head, caramel color. Smell is piney hops, sweet malt. Taste follows and is nicely balanced. Great lacing. Quite frankly, there is nothing worse than an overhopped beer with no supporting malt base. I think most followers of ipa's are very new to beer and just like to follow trends. This is one of the better ipa's ive had and its solely because of the balance of malt and hop. Would recommend.

Overall decent West coast IPA. Not sure what it is but it doesn't spark my interest. I think it's just too middle of the road. Also, its a bit more sour than bitter which put me off. The mouth feel is great though, it's
soo smooth for an IPA.

Umm, sure. Why not? This one is a classic, and I believe that I’ll treat it like such. Yeah, it’s pretty much AOL on a dial up; it will do the trick at the time, but there was a more beautiful and bright future to be had. A lil caramel, a lil malt... Yeah, that’s basically it. So ima peace out.

Bye!

Poured into tulip unmarked.
L: an orangey yellow, deeper than straw. dirtier but transparent. a solid white foam of about two inches forms. slight haze.

S: grass and grapefruit. Sweaty socks on the end, but like hardwork paid off. Slight juice but balanced by malt

T: Barnyard citrus, Fruit hidden by farm or pigsty, in the best of ways. I notice a lot of grass clippings. Oak on the finish. Flavors are pronounced but could work better together. Stone fruit here and there.

F: Bitter throughout, liquid gelatin. Short lived effervescence that remains on the palate subtly for a time.

Overall, this IPA feels the best out of any I have tried. It doesn't flop and does what a direct IPA should. Juiciy yet bitter. Dank and fruity- a great balance.

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.
