Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA

60 Minute poured a clear, light amber color with a two-fingered, frothy white head. The nose had lots of bready malt and was very yeasty. The body had a thicker mouthfeel and a lot of the bready flavor that was apparent on the nsoe. There is a sweet aspect and the hops start out light before really starting to show through at the end. The finish is clean and dry, with plenty of piney hops and a sharp hop bite. There was a decent amount of lacing left on the glass.

Overall, this is pretty darn good beer. It is fairly deep and has a complex body for an American IPA. The hops are not overwhelming at all and the beer is well balanced.

The quality of Dogfish Head beers never ceases to amaze me. Their 60, 90 and 120 minute IPA always impart a smooth flavor, not overly hoppy. They are one of America's best microbreweries. said...

60 Minute IPA is one of those beers that if you aren't a hop head when you first try it you will be by the time you get to the bottom of the bottle. Ranking up there with Pliny the Elder, Stone Ruination and other stars of the American IPA movement Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA is the perfect introduction to the style.
