Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA
60 Minute IPA. Dogfish Head Brewery. Milton, DE.
Continuing our Nty Minute IPA journey, we started with the 120 Minute, then the 90 Minute, now finally the baby 60 Minute.
Although I wasn’t initially too excited by the 90 Minute, but like the 120 Minute I found myself craving it any time I wasn’t in its presence, and kept coming back to it eagerly.
So I’m expecting this to be yummy.
I indirectly compared the 90 Minute to Bell’s Two Hearted, feeling they had similar character, but 90 Minute was a 9% ABV imperial IPA, and this one is 6% ABV, more comparable to Two Hearted’s 7%.
Pours easily to a perfect pillowy head.
Bright orange and cloudy.
I recall the 90 Minute being less cloudy than I expected. This seems more cloudy than that.
I feel like peaches.
A little citrus.
Smell is a bit faint, but definitely there.
It’s not as fruity as I was expecting. The taste is generally milder than I was expecting.
Goes down real easy.
The hops expression is strong. It’s bitter.
I detect something a bit off in it, musty. The word “horse” keeps coming to mind, but it’s definitely not a barnyard.
Super drinkable. I like it. More than the 90 Minute? I don’t know yet. More than Bell’s Two Hearted? I don’t know yet.
But I intend to find out.
