DFH 60 Minute is hoppy more in the sense of bitterness than it is in knocking you in the face with hop aroma and wrecking your palate with hop flavor like West Coast IPAs do. Since East Coast IPAs are American IPAs that are more akin to their British counterparts instead of their West Coast counterparts I am surprised many outside of the region (that is the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic) actually like this beer as an IPA. Next to Boh (National Bohemian) and Yuengling, you can get DFH 60 Minute practically everywhere around here (Maryland), even at VFWs. It is my go-to beer.
For what it is worth, the ABV of the "real" DFH 60 Minute is "only" 6% and fairly balanced between maltiness/bitterness with a slight lean towards the bitter side.
