3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Bottledog. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is soft, toasty, brown bread, wood and earth. The taste is smooth, toasty, grain, decent bitterness, light grapefruit peel and pepper with a crisp, dry finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. A bit watery if truth be told. Fairly inoffensive.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottles (several). Lovely reddish orange-golden-amber pour, super huge frothy head dissipates slowly into a thin covering, leaving strong lacing and is easily livened up by swirling. Aroma is so open and pleasant; fruity, floral, caramel, slight yeast and biscuit. Flavor malt-forward, bread, grapefruit; rather long, medium bitter finish. Mouthfeel is full, frothy, slick and oily. Man, what a great APA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, classic golden color with a one-finger, creamy, antique white head. The head dissipates too quickly, or I would’ve scored its appearance a 4. A well, balanced malt/floral hop bouquet is noted. A relatively rich mouthfeel yields to some mild astringency late. There’s something peculiar lying a the flavor’s foundation that disrupts the malt and hop characters. Almost like petroleum jelly. Nearly flavorless, yet has a distinctive flavor. It’s not off putting. Just disrupts what would otherwise be the natural flavors of the ale. It takes on the hop character and bitterness of a session IPA, but with a smidgeon better malt backbone.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I am rating this as a pale ale. It destroys what dogfish head 60 minute tries to be as an ipa. This has a citrus pine aroma followed up by taste and a lingering malt sweetness accompanied by a bitter citrus pine balanced finish. If you don’t like your pale ales too pale, cheers
