ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE:
India Pale Ale
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!
Every Beer Has A Story...
In our Quick Sip Clip video below, Sam Calagione talks about the 60 Minute IPA. For some perspective, he compares this beer to its predecessor, 90 Minute IPA, and its big brother, 120 Minute IPA.
Sam stepped out of the brewery for the taping of this Quick Sip Clip and comes to us from the place where it all started: Dogfish Head, Maine.
Also went back to the Ohio History Center today. They have a new exhibit on the Korean War.
Maybe all this stuff about PBR is a bit harsh. Guess I would have to say sorry.
This beer always makes me think of the song 60 Minute Man.
PBR drinkers can't last that long.
What glass other than a Dogfish Head glass could I ever pour 60 Minute IPA into? None. Decent head. Some lacing that doesn't last too long. Aroma has some pine and citrus to it. Tiny bit of grass. No PBR drinkers, not that type of grass.
Taste starts off with a bit of citrus. Seems to me to be a bit of orange and grapefruit. Bit of malt to it. Finishes off with a nice pine bitterness. Not an overpowering bitterness. Just enough to know it's there. With an IBU of 60, I thought it would be a bit more bitter than what it seems. Overall, a very pleasant beer. Rated it 4.5 out of 5 on Untappd. It might be a bit generous on the rating but it wouldn't be too generous.
