Dogfish Head 60 Minute
Dogfish Head 60 Minute is an American IPA, 6% ABV. It is hard to believe this American craft beer classic is over 12 years old! Almost harder to believe is the fact that I haven’t reviewed it yet!
A fine looking pour, lighter looking golden color with a nice white head. The aroma, as well as the taste, has a unique quality that is distinct to 60 Minute. It is hard to describe, but I have never smelled or tasted anything like it in any other IPA. The aroma is toasty and earthy, just a hint of citrus and sweet malt. I have always loved the taste of this beer, toasted (?) pine hops, sweet creamy caramel malts, grapefruit citrus and that unique earthiness in the taste.
Sadly I’m am seeing less and less of this once dominate beer on store shelves and tap/bottle lists. The more we become obsessed with the next big thing the more this tasty IPA seems to fade from our memories.
