UPDATED: DEC 19, 2004 Very good beer. Nice citrus flavor. Apricot and Graitfruit at the same time. I’m glad I gave this a shot. The pour was nice and red. Great IPA, but there is better out there.

qdog (201) - Cleveland, Mississippi, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Bottle, nice golden color with medium white head, nice aroma of hops, citrus, and pine, medium lacing, great hoppy taste that also brings out citrus flavor right before the bitter end. a very refreshing smooth IPA

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Nice deep amber/bronze color with a pretty thick and creamy head of eggshell white. Some lacing. Aroma of fruity citrus hops. Oranges and other sweet citrus. A touch of apricot as well. The malts are nice in the background. Bitter hops are light up front and fade quickly into a maltiness of caramel. Kind of a muskiness about. A touch tangy on the palate from the bittering hops, but a bit creamy as well. Tapers off into a nice mellow, malty and bitter finish with some citrusy fruits.

Wonderful example of the style. Pours a nice burnt orange producing a small head. Spicy and hoppy, just the way I like it.

Thus is a great beer. Every bit as good as its big brothers, the 90 and 120, but not as tough a configuration to perfect. That’s the only reason I wouldn’t give it a perfect score....

Picked up a six-pack for Thanksgiving at Whole Foods Market. Looked golden in my glass. Great tasting too. Enjoyed it outside with some Greek olives. Going to try the 90 and 120 IPAs next!

meathookjones (245) - Sterling, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2004
60 Minute IPA pours a golden orange color with a nice fluffy white head that remained through most of the experience. Hops dominate the aroma with a backing of hints of citrus. Good hop flavor hits you first along with notes of pine and citric flavors. A bitter and fruity aftertaste follows the initial rush of hops. This has a medium creamy mouthfeel that fits the brew well. A good all around IPA that is very flavorfull and makes for a good sessionable brew that can still give a hophead his fix.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2004
Bottle, smokeless Joe’s. Dark Orange Pour. Long lasting white head. Strong sharp hop aroma - not fruity, but what can best be described as sharp - and enjoyable. Strong crisp mouthfeel, balanced by nice carbonation and a decent malt base - a little too syrupy at times, but otherwise nice as well. Overall, very quaffable, hoppy and enjoyable.

RCWCPACFP (102) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 24, 2004
I love the sweet hoppy kick that punches you in the mouth. Great mouth feel and nice full bodied flavor supported well by the malt. BUT... this is a two beer max for me because the hops build up and leave a sort of perfume thing in my mouth.

Yellowish. frail head. Bitterness sneaks up on you and persists after your done wth your sip. Slight chemical smell. All in all not bad but not one I’d make a habit of drinking.
