Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA

Web stuff:  Our 60 Minute IPA is continuously hopped - more than 60 hop additions over a 60 minute boil (getting a vibe yet of where the name came from?). 60 Minute is a session India Pale Ale brewed with a slew of great NorthWest hops. A powerful, but balanced East Coast I.P.A. with a lot of citrusy hop character. The session beer for hardcore beer enthusiasts!

6.0 ABV, 60 IBU.  Really?  60 hops/minutes/IBU/ ÷10 ABV?  I accuse you of rounding.

Review:  This is the most approachable of the X Minute IPA's (There is also a 90 and 120).  Those IPA's are reserved for the masochists who enjoy 120 IBU's.  I don't consider it citrusy.  Just slightly bitter.  It's drinkable.  When did 6.0 abv become a session beer?
Cost: Mix & Match
Grade: B-
