Default dogfish head 60 minute IPA

Finally got around to trying any of their beers...

as soon as the cap was off the beer you are hit with pungent hop aroma...it dosent smell like any hops ive ever had, it has an almost cheese-like aroma, but in a good way. Very balanced taste, bitter, but not harsh like a hop-ottin (anderson valley) very smooth bitterness. Body is meduim to light. Very crisp clean tasting beer. That hop aroma is CRAZY!, reminds me of first lagunita's IPA i had...this beer is a hop heads dream. Excellent, excellent beer, im regretting not buying a sixer.

the 60 minute IPA is great. I haven't tried the 90, can't bring myself to buy a 4-pack, why don't they sell a 6'er? Is it the abv?

120 Minute IPA

Availability: limited - 3 releases scheduled for 2006

Release Date: March, Sept. & Oct. 2006

Too extreme to be called beer? Brewed to a colossal 45-degree plato, boiled for a full 2 hours while being continuously hopped with high-alpha American hops, then dry-hopped daily in the fermenter for a month & aged for nother month on whole-leaf hops!!! Our 120 Minute I.P.A. is by far the biggest I.P.A. ever brewed! At 20% abv and 120 ibus you can see why we call this beer THE HOLY GRAIL for hopheads!

20% abv

120 ibu

20% ABV? That's insane. I'm having trouble even imagining what such a beer would taste like. Not like beer, I'm guessing.

I've never tried the 120 minute, but the 60 and 90 are outstanding, like many people have said. A local restaurant with a nice beer selection recently picked up the 90 on draft and I find it an easy beer to drink too much of.

And yes, it comes in 4-packs because it's around 9.5% abv IIRC.

do they distribute the 120 out or is that something you have to get in Milton, DE?

The 120 can only be called a barleywine. I don't know their exact distribution, but I've had it in Portland. It's amazing, but only in small glasses. I think I like the 60 best, because you can drink a pint or two. I'm not into sipping beers.

im pretty sure you can get it at 'total wines' or 'wines and more' or whatever those places are called in VA. Maybe even 'farm fresh', actually im positive 'farm fresh' has 'em...

i think they sell 4 packs because they can chage more that way, ive seen six packs of brooklyn breweries' barley wine, and sierra's big foot right next to 4 packs of dogfish...its just a marketing thing...

I've tried many, many IPA's that I consider head and shoulders better than Dogfish Head 60. I'm talking Smuttynose, I'm talking Lagunitas, I'm talking Acme, I'm talking Stone, I'm talking Celebration Ale.

Of course this is all subjective, but is it just me? Does anyone else think this Dogfish stuff is overrated?
