60 Minute IPA

Posted by jwpiper on February 1, 2009

I somewhat enjoy Dogfish Head 90 Minute as a year-round available double IPA, but I’ve never been the biggest fan it its little brother Dogfish Head 60 Minute. For the Hop Mess, Matt G. brought some 60 Minute IPA, so we had it to wash down the pizza. Poured at about 45-50 degrees into a pint glass.
Appearance
4
Pours a clear caramel-yellow color with a nice, big 3cm white head.
Smell
3
Not terribly compelling. A bit of pine, and something which is a bit off. More malt than hops on the nose. A bit non-descript.
Taste
3
Medicinal, not very much good hop character. Too bitter for the lack of hop profile. Not terrible, but not good, and nowhere near as good as the 90 minute.
Mouthfeel
4
Nice and clean palate. Good carbonation. A bit thin, but smooth.
Drinkability
3
The off/medicinal/bitter flavors don’t help this one go down.
Overall
3.3
Unfortunately the best part about this was the appearance. I don’t think I’ll be buying this one again.
Price
$9/6pk ($1.50/12oz). Not really worth it, unfortunately.
