This is local beer for me and recently saw it for $7.99 for a six pack and couldn't resist. Not sure why I haven't reviewed before. This is a nice looking beer. Poured from bottle into a pint glass. Amber color with thin head. Smell was faint citrus not strong and taste was not citrus at all. Some hoppiness but not strong. This is an easy to drink and very consistent beer.

Pours a amber-orange with just a thin layer of frost to it. Head foams up to only one finger in height, but retains extremely well. Nice lacing left behind. Aroma is citrus, with hints of herbal and floral hops, with exposed malts giving it a earthy, balanced aroma. Flavor profile is citrus peel, herbal, and floral hops with biscuit malts a little more hidden. It retains a nice balance, while delivering tasty, but simple, hop notes. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a smooth feel. Overall, a simplistic, easy to drink but flavorful, classic IPA. Not too loud, just enough oomph to make each sip a treat.

Served in a 12oz snifter. Bottle.

Bottle dated 3/21/2017. Pours a brilliantly clear light amber with a foamy white head. Aroma has mild piney hops alongside more assertive caramel-cracker malts. Taste is very bright and crisp, more bready malts with a mild bitter bite and piney and slightly fruity hops that come through stronger than in the aroma. Aftertaste is bitter and bready. Light-bodied. I really enjoyed this beer. Completely unfashionable in today's IPA landscape, but it is perfectly balance and delicious.

Pours a medium golden color with a white head that goes away quickly. Smell is nonexistent. Now for the bad. Taste like pine sol. Mouthfeel is meh. Overall the taste sucked. Giving it a low grade.

Left at the house last weekend by son-in-law Jamie.
Pours fairly clear pale gold with a tint of orange and with a very ample head that showed superior retention.

Smell: Sharp citric hops, tart grapefruit along with some bread malts.

Taste: Tart and mildly bitter hops most evident that are moderate, not overwhelming (for me that is how I want hops).
Finishes dry with lasting bitterness.
Very good beer!

Widely available. Decent offering. Hoppy in taste, but fairly straightforward. Not going to below your mind but shouldn't ruin your pallet either.

L - A dark yellow, not quite amber. Lots of carbonation, as well as a medium head that dissipates quickly.
S - Citrus, pine, floral, and a hint of sweetness.
T - Good, straightforward hop flavor that is clean and refreshing. Does not taste like a 60 IBU at all. A good balance of hop and malt flavor.
F - Medium body, high carbonation. Very easy to drink.
O - This was the beer that got me into IPAs in the first place. It is an excellent choice for someone just getting into hoppy beers but not quite yet a hophead. That being said, 60 minute is a beer that I think just about everyone can enjoy.
