60 minute is a commonly found IPA. The name refers to the length of time that the hops are boiled, and the number of hop additions that are added during the brewing process. Any beer that has more than about 40 IBUs will be noticed on your palate. 60 minute begins with a citrusy bitterness on the roof of your mouth that mellows out a bit as the beer gets warmer. As always, I recommend letting the beer warm up for about 5 – 10 minutes before expecting to get a true taste. This is a great introduction into hoppy beers. Dogfish’s use of 60 IBUs allows you to sample a beer with both a wealth of flavor and a little kick without blowing you away or destroying your taste buds.
