Incredibly smooth mouthfeel. The caramel and toffee creeps in with perfect balance to the citrusy yeast flavors, all finishing with understated hops. Balance is really impeccable here and is aptly named, falling right between the 60 and 90 minute offerings. Creamy, hoppy and moderately malty.

Another winner from Dogfish Head. This blend of 60 Minute and 90 Minute IPAs - cask conditioned and post-hopped - comes with plenty of pine and citrus, along with some tropical fruit. Beautifully balanced with sweet malts. Smooth with a decent bitter finish

Bottle at Rattle n Hum NY. Pours a clear orange with minimal head. Nose is sweet, probably from the maple. Light fruity hops and some pine. Taste is much the same. Maybe a bit unbalanced in my opinion. A bit too sweet.

Poured from 750 mL brown bottle. The body was hazy apricot color. The aroma was peaches and bread. Some spicy hops. The taste was not too hoppy. Not really tasting the maple syrup but just a sweetness. Quite good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle. Cloudy orange color with thick sheets of bubbly lace down the sides of the tulip. Aroma is bright floral and pine with sugary sweetness.
The flavor has the hop varieties up front and transitions into a malt sweetness with a very minor hints of maple to balance the whole brew. Very balanced IPA yet the aroma is better than the flavor. For the standard IPA classification; it is about average. Drinkable can could be a service to your wants.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a heady,hazed orange. 5 mo from bottle bought from room temp shelf. Aroma of light sweet, biscuit/toasty malt, hop fruit, grape, purple berry, and some citrus, cherry and kind of wine honey mead like overall. Fairly complex.Taste is maltier than sixty minute and more fruit notes and toasty buiscuit character. Maple comes across like a vanilla caramel mild flavor. With slight noticablitlity of maple in the finish. Maple adds a weird but ok kind of complexity to it overall. I like this abv as an ipa but there are a lot better ones in this range. Id rather had this fresher also but that is not possible in my state yet.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This should be the standard dogfish head IPA and 60 minute should be renamed a pale ale. This has a pine blast of an aroma once the bottle is cracked. Pine and cedar entwined with light citrus zest. A very balanced finish with a dollop of maple.
