Pours a fluffy white non lasting head. Orange yellow in color. Hoppy but not overdone. Bitter finish. Nicely done.

(bottle cond'd). Pungent pine and citrus ridiculo-hop nose. Orange, hazy color. The citrus hop flavor dominates the palate throughout the entire drinking experience, but the malt is there to back it up. Sweetish malt flavor and punchy bitterness. Grapefruit twang with long-lasting bitterness ends the pleasant experience. Hop heads unite!

I had a tough time deciding which IPA to get. I settled on the 60. A boy never forgets his first Dogfish. The right amount of bitterness that pleases the palate. My only beef? A not so nice smell. Go figure. Drink it and enjoy.

Light orange body with floating junk, medium white head, flowery, slightly spicy, citrus nose. Toasty malt with citrus and medium bitterness.

pours cloudy orange, foamy white head. huge flowery hop aroma with hints of grapefruit and malt. the flavour at first is like biting into a fresh orange, pith and all, then some sweet and bready backs it up, leading to a pithy, citrusy bitter finish. very nice.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2003
A very well-balanced, nicely hopped IPA. Very smooth, yet bitter, sharp finish. Flowery aroma and flavor. A warm, toasty element to this one that I can't quite put my finger on, but there is a nice malt presence too in the background. YUM.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2007 [nomore bottle conditioning - very filtered - much more bland] My goodness, this beer is under-rated, even with its current 3.83. This is one of the best IPAs Iíve had. Perfect appearance, with a huge, foamy white head that gradually shrinks to a very persistantly sticky lacing. Huge hop aroma with a mild sweetness. The flavor begins highly hoppy, but the middle is where the greatness is - a bready, grainy maltiness comes in and starts square dancing across your tongue with the hops - the two are in perfect harmony - the go out together on the back of the tongue, along with a slight grapfruit flavor and a mild sweetness - this is not extremely hoppy, like most west-coast IPAs are (donít get me wrong, those are good too) - this beer is more subtle, perhaps even more refined, but Iím partial to the philosophy that hopping the hell out of something is just a way of covering up the fact that you arenít a creative brewer, and you canít make a great tasting beer without dumping in the hops.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUN 19, 2003
Pretty much typical of a west coast IPA. Bracing grapefruit citrus aroma and bitterness from start to finish, prickly at first turning refreshing and bracing in the finish. Some biscuity malt and herb complexities that play a lesser role. Cloudy appearance from bottle conditioning and good head formation.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JUN 17, 2003
Nice foamy head. Dark orange color that you can't see through. A hoppy aroma but not too much smell. A decent hop hit and its not too sweet; a nice little bite at the end. An above average IPA from Dogfish here.

MrDick (347) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 16, 2003
I was excited to find a 6-pack of DFH 60 Minute IPA at the Trader Joe's by my work. But I was a bit dissapointed. True - there are a lot of hops biting at your taste buds. But it's the only striking characteristic. It lacks a balance to the floral arrangement that blossoms in your mouth. This needs some more malt or barley to balance out the bitterness,
