What You Need to Know

Like its predecessor, the 90 Minute IPA, the 60 Minute IPA is produced utilizing the same technique, where the hops are continually added to the boil over a period of 60 minutes. The result is realized in the brew’s hoppy aroma and palate. So how was it? Let’s get to the review.

Appearance

The ale pours a relatively clear marigold hue and is topped by a thick cap of frothy white foam that shows excellent retention. A few patches of residue cling to the sides and a soapy collar rounds the glass.

Aroma

The aroma wafts musty grain and ripe stone fruit along with earthy hops.

Flavor

The palate opens with a taste of toasted bread and a light orange peel citrus. The tasting traverses more bread and rises to a hoppy bite of white grapefruit and pine. A flash of pineapple appears beneath the bite.

Mouthfeel

Its feel has a light grain that becomes prickly on the backend. Medium body with carbonation that’s just a shade over medium. Finishes dryly.

Overall

Though the 90 Minute IPA preceded it, the 60 Minute IPA is Dogfish Head’s best-selling beer. And why not? It’s well crafted. The ale presents nicely with a straightforward IPA flavor whose balanced bitterness will please both hopheads and connoisseurs. Its feel is a little sharp but otherwise, this is a brew that’s easily quaffed.
