duvel tulip / it tastes like there’s a hop nugget in my glass! liquid hop. good malts tame the bitterness, however, but this is good; sweet malts hug dry hops - slightly doughy, peppery, perfume and citrus... but still, there’s gotta be a nugget of hop floating around in here because when i popped the cap i thought i opened up a bag of hops.

Rich color and thick on malts. Great mix of hops to add the required IPA bite to this one. A superb IPA.

Beautiful gold, aroma of flowers, citrus peel and pine, flavor of hops hops hops in a grove of grapefruits (not that they would grow in the same climate). I was queasy that day and this was just the ticket, like eating a hop salad.

bottle. golden rather clear small white head diminished quickley. medicinal, juniper, evergreen aroma. un-substantial malt...highly aromatic and bitter biting piney hops. This is not as good as the 90min. a bit thin.

Pours a full amber with thin head. Strong smells of citrusy hops. Flavor is very hoppy, even considering it’s the least hopped in the DFH IPA line. Strong bite, good citrusy finish. A great beer if only their NC prices hadn’t just gone up.

bottle. vpours a dark tan with a fantastic white head. it is a beautiful beer. aroma is roast citrus grapefruit taste is hops and not much else. rubber hop taste dominates this. finish is surprise surprise hoppy. i have a 6 pack of these to drink and i really wish i had bought some kind of mediocre stout to mix with this. christ , maybe i’ll give em to lumpy.

While you’d think the 60 minute IPA is for beginners, considering there’s a 90 and a 120, you’d be WRONG. This is a great little beer. It’s no joke, joker.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2005 Rerate: 3/24/05: I just poured a 60 minute and it produced the largest head I have seen in a domestic beer in a long time. I have upgraded the appearance to a 5. 2/3/05: Citrus aroma with sweet malt and dry hops. Orange body, slightly hazy with slow but steady carbonation. Small, off-white head is mostly diminishing. Nice, uneven lace. Has more of a hop bite than I anticipated for "only 60" IBUs. Peppery, with a faint buttery aspect. Initial mouthfeel is more alcoholic than 6% would warrant. Excellent. I still may prefer the 90 minute, but it doesn’t have much on this one. Sometimes less can be more. And that certainly is the case when comparing to the 120 minute. Has session qualities but may be a little peppery to take down more than 4 or 5., This is a beer I’d love to have a keg of to pull off of when I pleased. Wonderfully full bodied and complex with cedar notes.

Reasonably mainstream sweet-spot-of-the-IPA-rating-curve 4/5 material. Ed McMahon says, "You pass mustah, suh!"
