bottle, clear golden pour with a large off white head. Faint hop aroma, with some malt hints too. Start is kind of metallic, hoppy and sharp. The flavor mellows in the middle, and finishes very nicely. Some nice grapefruit bitter to finish. Smooth from the middle on and decent to drink. Much better than the last bottle of this stuff that I refused to rate because it was infected.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 5, 2004
Foamy head on a hazy golden orange body. Aroma is fresh fruity and hoppy. Flavor is also hoppy with a delicious dry bitterness. A very nice and refreshing beer but a little thin on the palate.

Floral hop aroma. This is some good stuff, as I expected. Definitly the session version of the three DFH IPAs. Has a nice caramel hoppiness. Kind of a chilled out, session version of the 90 minute. I can see myself driking this a lot.

I was expecting much more hoppiness from this beer. The aroma is typically hoppy and fruity but the flavor is a let down. It is hoppy but quite mildly so, with the hops struggling to win out over the malt.

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 (334) - 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?
