This is a brilliant beer. A warm, balanced nose with layers of floral hop aromas and a hint of maltiness. The first taste is an overwhelming burst of hop aromas and flavors followed quickly by a balancing malt sweetness that balances but does not override the depth of hop flavors. It is thus eminently drinkable. The sweetness may be too much for most hardcore Hop Heads, but I posit that IPAs are at their greatest when bitterness is balanced by a rich malt profile. IMO, Dogfish Head’s 60 Min is a shining example of the best aspects of the style.

VAYankee (327) - Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Dark amber body with an offwhite head. The aroma is all hops, a little sweet and piney. The flavor is hoppy and slightly sweet with a modestly bitter finish. I did notice that this beer is missing that hoppy bite that is found in many IPA. Overall this is a solid ipa, but there are others that are better.

I expected (or maybe wanted) much more hops. Still enjoyed but looking forward to 90 or 120 IPA.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Amber with a foamy white head. Aroma is hoppy, grapefruit, floral. Medium body with light carbonation and a smooth feel. Flavor was clean and crisp and refreshing. Citrus notes and some sweetness. Very good.

The best aspect of the 60 minute is the finish a pure hop taste. Otherwise a mild fruity IPA?

r464 (1786) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2004
A nice amber/brown with a light hoppy aroma. Clean flavor with some fruitiness and the distinct hoppiness of an IPA. Not terribly strong on the alcohol (though it is under there). Nice bitter finish. A good IPA that is not over the top.

Pailhead (4416) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2004 Bottle: Aroma is dominated by grapefruit. There are some floral hints as well. Pours a plae transparent orange with a nice white creamy head with good retention. Taste is of grapefruit with a slight sweetness to it. Kind of a combination of grapefruit and a touch of pineapple juice. Relatively strong bitter finish with a slight grapefruit aftertaste. The first time I ever had this was on tap and I remember it to be a little more sweet than from the bottle. Better on top, bumps it up another .2 points.

poured a deep copper with a large off white head. Nice hop aroma and taste, that is mainly grapefruit, but has some nice piney hop notes as well, and a light sweet malt backbone for balance. a well done IPA.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 19, 2004
Cloudy burnt orange color with fine brilliant white head and fine bubbles. Piney nose with grapefruit, and some light roasted malt notes. Medium mouthfeel, mostly dry with lingering pine hop finish. Some flesh fruit, and some apricot qualities. Very nice session..
