In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Dogfish Head Craft Brewery 61 Minute IPA

Aroma: “Complex aroma that is hard to pin down. Toasted sweet bread, subtle caramel, some butterscotch, earth, piney character, rhubarb? sour cherries? grapes?”

Flavor: “If they said this was a raspberry English bitter, it wouldn’t be surprising. Very fruity and tart. Flavors blend between grape notes and citrus with slight grapefruit. Complex fruitiness dances through. Finishes dry with a slight warmth. Rhubarb. Astringent. Smoked cherry. It’s gotta be grape.”

Overall: “Hops are well-selected to favor earthy, spicy over citrus. Fruitiness is fresh and crisp. Enjoyable—didn’t deliver on the hoppy IPA experience but scores much better as a specialty ale. ”
