Dogfish Head 60min IPA


Dogfish Head 60min IPA

Ratebeer 3.74 96th percentile
Beer Advocate A-

Taste +4

The nose is sweet like grapefruit with a small bit of pine. There is also a vague floral and candy sweetness. The taste is all hop sweetness like ruby red grapefruit. There is also a pronounced oily slickness with sweet oranges. For all those people who keep scores, it has 60 IBUs.

Aftertaste +1

The creamy, oily, sweet grapefruit vanished fast but leaBoldves a half version of itself behind. It is very palate cleansing.

Alcohol Content +1 6%

Value +1

This is a great, readily available IPA.

Ingame Enhancement +1

This was sampled in Gord's basement office; so many big IPA's, so little time.

Overall 8/10

This beer defines the style of American IPA. It has it all: sweetness, citrus, pine, cedar and palate cleansing. YUM!
