You have to be ready for this beer… If you think it is going to be like any other standard IPA you have tasted, that is where you would be very, very wrong. Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA hits you with an interestingly mild and flowery taste that seems to hold the hops back from hitting you too hard. At 60 IBU, it really isn’t that strong… I guess I thought it would be. It was also much silkier than I expected.
Overall, I am still a bit flumoxed by this beer, to be honest. I think I am supposed to like it, based on everything I have read, but it didn’t stick with me. I wasn’t thinking, “holy crap this one fine IPA.” I was more on the side of, “this beer confuses me with its flavors.” So, I am going to throw this in the middle until I can have it again… I think I may change my mind, but then again, you never know.
