During a trip I’ve already talked about at the end of August, we also stopped at the Dogfish Head Brewery and Brewpub. This 60 minute was had at the brewery, so I don’t think we could have been drinking it fresher.
It pours a clear amber with a finger’s width off-white head. A whiff cues up tropical fruits, citrus, a bit of pine. It tastes like it smells (that’s what she said?), and finishes clean with a bite of bitterness. I feel bad saying that it’s typical when it’s so well done, but it takes a lot these days to separate craft American IPA’s from one another. With great carbonation and a medium body, this one is like a lot of other solid ones. They’re just so damn good!
And you can drink them in well under 60 minutes.
