Beer Review, Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA

Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA (bottle)
Milton, DE
6.0% ABV

How is it I've never reviewed 60 minute? Time to rectify that.

Appearance: Yellow body, quite a bit of effervescence, with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Somewhat hazy. 4.0/5

Smell: Sweet oranges up front, nice citrus aroma, with a clean hoppiness underneath. Quite inviting. 4.0/5

Taste: Hops are more prevalent in the flavor than the nose. Strong crisp hop bite on the tip of the tongue, with a slight citrus fruitiness on the back end. Hops fade in the finish leaving a dry, almost yeasty aftertaste. Quite nice. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated, high hops, otherwise moderate thickness. Coats the palate. A bit thick for a standard IPA, but not unpleasantly so. 3.5/5

Drinkability: A very drinkable IPA. Worthy of its reputation. 4.0/5

Overall: 4.15/5
