BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States
dogfish.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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!

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

Appearance: It has a nice almost clear golden yellow color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of pine, earth, some citrus, some breadiness and almost grainy.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a citrusy/piney/earthy hop character to it along with some bready malts. Decent bitterness.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

*Note: This review was done while coming off of a cold, I can't vouch for my senses as I normally could.

Very biscuity on the nose with a tad of grain. Hops come across as a citrus/pine-like aroma, but a bit weak as the malt takes prominence.

60 Minute IPA looks great in the glass. It is a deep straw gold color with visible carbonation that supports a white head. The head lacing is moderate, at best, and the head itself falls back into the beer pretty quickly.

A bit like sweet biscuit on the flavor and pine with citrus notes coming in on the finish. There is a firm, but not overpowering bitterness overall.

Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation and a touch dry on the finish. It's a great beer to just sit back and relax with after a hard day's work.

A: The appearance of this beer is a golden-wheat color, not much of a head but has some nice bubbles on top. Moderate carbonation and leaves a little lacing.

S: I get a smell of citrus hops, pine, sweet malts, and a type of biscuit aroma and grapefruit notes.

T: A very nice sweetness to this beer at the beginning, immediately followed by a hop bitterness and citrus. This finish consists of honey and a dry yeast!

M: A well balanced IPA and is very drinkable. Lots of hop character with equal amounts of sweetness and bitterness.

O: For this being my first Dogfish Head, I came in with high expectations based on other reviews of this brewery. I can say that I wasnt disappointed. Not the best IPA I've ever had, but a very good version of the style. Cant wait to try some more from Dogfish Head, especially the 120 Min IPA which I will drink all 4 in succession!

Dogfish Head is a craft brewery in Delaware that opened its doors in 1995. It started out as a restaurant/brewery, and then the brewery operation expanded into what it is today. What is it today? Well...This is a great brewery! There are a number of year round beers, as well as a bunch of "occasional rarities." To check out the their selections, go here. The brewery has a great website.
But let's talk about the featured beer today -> The 60 Minute IPA.dogfish head 60 minute ipa

There are lots of beers out there that are labeled as IPAs, but they don't all taste like an IPA should. The term IPA (India Pale Ale) came from English breweries that exported pale ales to India. By the early/mid 1800s, demand for the "India Pale Ale" style of beer became heavy in England as a domestic brew. The rest is history.

The Dogfish Head 60 minute brew pours with a semi-creamy, white head. It is a beautiful golden yellow, and has a spicy/fruity aroma to it. There is a definite sweet side to the initial taste, but then the hoppy bitterness kicks in. This is one great IPA. Very easy to drink, and very refreshing. I am drinking one now, as I write this, in the sweltering summer heat, and it is wonderful.

The "60 minute" part of the name comes from the fact that this brew is "continuously hopped" with Northwest Hops for an entire 60 minute boiling cycle. Dogfish Head also makes 90 & 120 minute IPAs as well. They are both heavier on the malt flavor, and the 120 minute is not available year round. I highly recommend this beer. Happy drinking!

Had to snag a sixer of this on my way back from vacation in GA. Iowa has yet to see the arrival of the Dogfish.

A - Body is honey-gold and crystal clear. Yields a finger of white billowy foam. Decent retention. Good lacing on the glass.

S - Pine, orange juice, citrus rind. Faint bread-like and crisp clean cereal notes underneath all the hops.

T - Lemony and sweet up front. More tropical fruits and some mild honey-like malt character through the middle. A fair amount of bitter hop-bite in the finish and aftertaste, but it's not uber-bitter just for the sake of trying to live up to the "IPA" label--respect. I'd have to agree with those who say this is one of the most well-balanced IPAs out there. Finish is juicy, citrusy and malty.

M - Thin-to-medium body. Carbonation is strong, but not overbearing. Finish is dry and incredibly clean. Hot-damn I wish this was distributed in Iowa! One of the most drinkable beers I've had in recent memory.
