Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a golden-orange, with thin off-white head and great lacing. Aroma was not real pronounced, but a very pleasant mix of citrus and floral. Taste was a continuation of this floral and citrus, but what I noticed immediatley was the dominance of the alcohol. While only 6%, this hit me from the initial sip, and carried on thru the entire glass. The finish is bitter, yet smooth, but most of all leaves a warming sensation from the alcohol. In addition to the 60 minute, I also have the 90- and 120- minute, and can’t wait to try those when the time is right. This was my first DFH, and I am truly pleased.

I love the 90 minute, but this one didn’t do it for me. It was too bitter. None of the lovely floral, citrus components of the 90 minute, nor the malt balance.

This beer has a hazy golden color and an alchoholic aroma. The taste: floral at first, but the hops quickly overcome any other taste. Still, it’s crisp. clean and refreshing. Great for hot weather. Unfortunately, not available in Alabama.

This is a good IPA from one of my favorite brewers. It pours a golden amber color, and has a nice hoppy aroma. The flavor is primarily of malt and bitter hops. This is one you can have time and again, and is especially great during the summer months.

This is a solid IPA. The hop character is less floral than many of its contemporaries. The color is dark amber with nice head retention. 60 minute has a very subtle malty aroma and chewy, bitter finish that will satiate the hophead demon that dwells in the worst of us.

piscator34 (2673) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 19, 2006
Medium amber in colour with average carbonation. The aromas are quite well balanced between the light crystal malts, and the citrus-spice element of the hops. Full in the mouth, with the malt (both crystal and a bit of toasted) leading the way. The hops were there in abundance, but not so much as to overwhelm things. A very classy and refined IPA.

Hangover (1151) - oxford, Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Golden pour with a frothy and lasting white head. Hoppy aroma, not overpowering and a good bit of malt in the background. Taste is of very floral hops, not too much, but still thick and resinous. Toasty malt in the finish. Crisp and slighly sweet finish. Darn good.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Pours a fairly dark golden color with moderately thick head. Strong aroma of floral hops and a slight sweetness. Flavor is not overly hoppy, but very nice indeed. Toasty grain in the beginning, followed by bitter floral hops and balanced with caramel maltiness. A good brew.

beachbum25 (1092) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - JUN 16, 2006
On tap-at the Brewery-Wasn’t expecting to enjoy this beer as much as I did-not really an IPA fan-but this one was good. Poured a golden amber color w/a small white head. Had a nice hopped, floral, citrus flavor-hops didn’t overpower everything else. Had good balance-reminded me somewhat of a wheat beer. Long sweet finish. Refreshing, smooth. Good summer drinking beer. Picked up a sixer for the beach this weekend!!

A pretty solid IPA. Nice white not too thick or thin foam head. Golden amber, clear. Floral/citrus aroma. Pretty smooth, nice for a summer relaxing on the deck atmosphere.
