Beer 190/365 – Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA

Style: American IPA

ABV: 6.0%

What makes this beer different: Like a less sweet Dogfish 90 minute

Will I be drinking this again: Probably yes if I am in the mood for an IPA.

Grade: B+

5/17/2010: One of my good friends Ray is the GM of a pretty fancy shmancy restaurant in the Strip District of Pittsburgh called Cioppino. I haven’t been there in awhile so I decided to stop down for a beer, and to BS with him. He also gave me a big bottle of Chimay Red that had been sitting on their shelves since they opened almost 3 years ago, should be delicious. If you in the Pittsburgh are and you are looking for a really good meal cooked by a very well known chef (Greg Alauzen), stop in and ask for Ray, let him know Drew sent ya.

Cioppino is well known for their wines, not so much for their beer, but in the very near future I think Ray has plans to change that. Anyways the most “crafty” of the beers he had was the Dogfish 60 minute. I actually have never tried it considering I have just recently been getting into IPAs. I am heading to the brewery in a couple weeks and am hoping they have the 120 on tap to try.

The 60 minute smells a heck of a lot like the 90 minute, but less sweet. I am assuming they use the same hop string? Checked out the history of the 60-90-120 minutes, and it doesn’t say. The flavor also tastes like a less sweet version of the 90 minute, much more about the hops than the malt. The dominant hop flavor here is floral, followed by some pine. Overall very good, but still a bit too bitter for me. A little more malt would have pushed this into the A- range.

Picture of the day: So wait, you didn’t buy a gun?

  1. By the way, you called this one a stout in the description, hehe.

  2. I noticed that too – must have forgot to change it from the dominion review when he pasted it. As for 120 on tap, they most likely won’t have it on tap at the brewery, but if you go to the brewpub in Rehoboth they should. They also have different vintages in bottles there.

    • Good catch fellas. I actually should have been more specific, I am going to the brewpub not the actual brewery haha. The vintages are nice but they are so damn pricey! I will probably buy one of the 2006 WWS they have right now though.

      • I have 2006 120 minute if you’re interested in a trade. Hmmm, a 2006 vintage Heaven and Hell?!?!

        • Oh man I have yet to try a fresh heaven and hell haha. Have you been hoarding it since 2006 or did you buy from the brewpub?

  3. […] the last of the four “Minute” IPAs from Dogfish that I have yet to try. Already had the 60, 75, and 90 minutes… all of which were really good. They should try doing a 105 Minute IPA […]
