Beer Tasting: Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA

The larger-than-life Dogfish Head hailing from Milton, DE has many imaginative brews. One of the most "basic" is their 60 Minute IPA. While not crazy over the top with hops, many agree that it's a downright drinkable and flavorful IPA. This 12 ounce bottle was bought in a case from Beer Yard in Wayne, PA. Best served a bit closer to refrigerated temperature. Bryan's Notes:
  • Light golden color
  • Creamy head; quickly fades to islands
  • Seems to be fairly filtered and clean
  • Fresh, grassy hops dominate the aroma and flavor; but not crazy
  • Pick up hints of citrus and apricot as well
  • Medium malt body with hints of alcohol
  • Easy drinking if you like solid IPAs (but don't mistake it for a west coast IPA)
  • My hoppy session beer; good 'ol standby!.....especially for fall lawn and garden work
