WOW! What a boring day today. No tornadoes. No Bruins game. No nothin’. Just work, some church, and now Thursday night TV on NBC. That’s the wife’s gig…the only show I occasionally watch is the Office. She’s so zoned in on the TV on Thursdays that I can get away with doing whatever I want…she barely notices me in the room. Just now I said something to her and she didn’t appear to notice I was speaking.
I can hardly talk though. When I’m typing (and especially blogging) the entire world around me ceases to exist. I can’t see or hear anything going on around me. Drives the wife nuts.
Tonight I’m reviewing Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA. I recently realized I have never reviewed this beer. How I managed to review 19 other DFH brews and miss this one, I’m not sure.
The 60 minute has a strong grapefruit aroma which doesn’t disappoint or mislead…the taste is a grapefruit drop-kick in your kisser. It finishes with a piney bitterness. Stingy carbonation sticks out to me. It’s not all hops though and there’s a small amount of malt flavor in there to start balancing it out. I wouldn’t ever call the beer balanced though. This one is for hop heads.
