BBR: Brief Beer Review...
The Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA is an excellent introduction to IPAs. Yes, its hoppy but not overly so. Bitter without being distastefully so while maintaining a medium level of carbonation.
This is a wonderful tasting beer and could be consumed in large quantities if it weren't for its substantial alcohol content (6%). It finishes clean with the proper IPA aftertaste and smells heavenly.
A tad expensive for what it is--$9+ at my local store, it is still worth it for the quality of beverage this represents. I understand that Dogfish Head also makes a 75, 90 and 120 Minute IPA (increasing in "hop" flavor as you go up) that I would be willing to try in the future but the 60 Minute IPA found here is a wonderful balance for those looking for a light-ish IPA.
