Dogfish Head ‘Sixty-One’ Beer Review


Brewed by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery

$9.99/Four pack

Style: American IPA

6.5% ABV

Serve at 45-50°

Availability: Rotating

Enjoyed from a DFH Signature glass

A: Pours like a raspberry framboise; light reddish-pink with a finger of fizzy, bubbly head. Attractive lacing and retention.

S: Very strange. Pine, citrus peels, a herbal mustiness for sure. Cherries and light hop notes blend well.

T: Red grapes, pine, grapefruit zest, hoppy and bitter. There’s a strange flavor to this that I can’t put my finger on, and I don’t like it. The musty aroma rolls across the tongue like a pair of gym shorts or something similarly gross. Whatever that background flavor is, it’s here to stay. The Syrah doesn’t have much staying power. It delivers a wave of tart fruitiness, followed by grape skin in the middle somewhere.

M: Light-bodied and thin. Very dry and fizzy.

O: I dig that DFH are so adventurous – I really do, and we all know it works to their favor a LOT of the time. This one falls flat I’m sad to say. The IPA and grapes fight it out with no clear winner. It pretty much tastes like a 60 Minute with a splash of concord grape. I wanted this to be great. Better luck next time, Sam.
