Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States
dogfish.com

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!

The local liquor store got a shipment in and I picked up a sixer based on comments from the forum that it closely matched Bell's Two Hearted.

Poured from 12oz bottle to pint glass.

A - The beer pours a dark golden/yellow/amber color. Perfectly clear with a small 1 finger white head with some retention and lacing.

S - I sense much more malt aroma than I anticipated. It is not dominated by hops at all, there are some citrus hop characteristics but mostly toasted crystal malt aromas.

T - The beer tastes just like the nose. Very malt forward with lots of toasted malt character. The hops are something of an afterthought. Not what I anticipated at all. The beer finishes with a mild bitterness and strong malt character.

M - Lighter end of medium bodied with decent carbonation.

D - Pretty drinkable.

Overall, after the comments on the forum I was greatly disappointed in this beer. In no way does it resemble Two Hearted (which I find vastly superior for an IPA). It isn't bad but much too malty for my taste and not enough hop character. Not a great representation of the style in my opinion,

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

A - Clear golden/copper in color. Head is off-white and minimal. Lacing is scarce.

S - The nose is most floral. Getting lots of grains and other earth characters as well. It mainly consist of floral and earth notes but a semi fruit/citrus feel is also in place.

T - Bitter, floral, semi sweet and malty, grainy. A bit of everything. Its very balanced and doesn't lean too much to one side.

M - Smooth, crisp and just a tad slick with good carbonation. Not bad at all.

O - An all around great IPA. One of the best and most available. Although I never buy six packs of this stuff I do drink it on a regular basis. Most of the times I pick up a single or two on a beer run because its to good to pass up.

Poured into a standard pint glass

A: Bold copper color, 1 1/2 fingers of rich, frothy white head that stuck around a bit. Touch of sediment in the bottle hazed the beer. Great lacing.

S: No shocker, HOPS!! Not overwhelming, just pleasantly floral citrus and pine. Hint of honey.

T: Reflects the scent, pine bitter and orange. Develops into a nice honey malt backbone, which I love about this beer, and a very light butter on the finish. Perfect balance.

M: Medium body, nice and decadent. Medium carbonation, crisp, with semi-dry finish.

O: Great American IPA. Amazing balance of hops and malt, subtle nuances all over the tongue. One of my top IPAs!
