4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2012 Pour out of 750 mL bottle is hazy orange-red with big thick white head, lacing and lasting for a long time, at least 3-4 fingers worth, lacing fairly well. Aroma has some notes of lemon, biscuit, some pine and grass notes, little to no maple syrup but a bit light on the nose, with a slight mineral note as well. Taste is completely different however, some nice grapefruit and orange notes with a big maple syrup note in the middle, some slight caramel, finishing fairly sweet but with a slight lemony bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a massive white head and tremendous lacing. Appearance is top notch. Smell is slightly subdued orange peel and pine hops with some caramel sweetness. Mo maple though. And not an in your face aroma. Taste is more smooth citrus with the maple actually making an appearance. Not my favorite IPA but interesting in itís own right and just a really nice beer overall.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle, stamp on bottle says bottled in 2012D 14:52. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a hazy dark gold color with a couple inch frothy off-white head. The head stays around a very long time, and thereís a good amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is nice, it smells like citrusy (orange peel, tropical fruit, grapefruit) and pine hops, and caramel and sweet malt. It tastes just like the aroma, like citrusy and pine hops, caramel and sweet malt. I didnít notice any maple when I first started drinking this brew but once I let the beer settle for a while, the maple did become noticeable in both the aroma and flavor (but it wasnít strong at all). Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís creamy and slick with high but soft carbonation. I think this is a good overall beer. I have another bottle that Iím going to age for a while to see how it changes. Definitely worth a try at $7.99 a bottle.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 750 ml bottle from jcos, 3/23/12
Aroma: The nose has some floral hops to it, citrus, grapefruit, caramel, and a little bit of pepper
Appearance: It pours a slightly cloudy orange color with a thick, foamy white head and heavy lacing
Flavor: The flavor has a fairly similar hop profile (mostly in the finish) to the nose, in addition, it has a bit of a woody/ tree sap feel, with some caramel malty sweetness, and just a hint of the honey
Palate: The body is medium-full, it has a slightly creamy and sticky feel, and some plus carbonation
Thanks, Kramer! This was a pretty enjoyable beer. I like what they did here, and I thought it worked pretty well. The complexity comes out a little more in the flavor then is does in the nose, but there is definitely some nice complexity here.

Mellow on the nose, slight bitterness on th finish. Huge aroma. It really is somewhere between the 60 and 90 in flavor. Iím glad it comes in a bomber, I need another glass.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Danís house. Hazy, golden orange appearance with a big, off white head. Rich piney, a bit sappy hoppy, somewhat spicy, caramelized aroma with hints of light citrus fruits. A bit syrupy, light maple, sappy, caramel, piney, orange citrusy hoppy flavor. Pretty easy drinking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a Russian River tulip. Produces almost three fingerís worth of dense, foamy, white head. Body is a slightly cloudy honey orange. Looks great. Good addition of spicy hops on the nose and some earthy maple sweetness. Flavor is syrupy sweet malts with a nice hop addition on the finish to cut the sweetness. However, the end result is kind of odd. Thereís definitely more to this beer than just a blend of 60 & 90 minute. Body is foamy with some decent weight to it. Spritzy carbonation. Would probably be a little more enjoyable with less foam. Overall, this was a fun beer to drink, but I donít think Iíll be going back for another bottle. Still worth checking out if you like DFH.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep orange golden body, hazy, with a very tall, lacy off-white head. Smells a little hoppy and a little mealy and earthy. Tastes a bit sweeter than it smells with a nice pronounced bitter hop presence throughout and a dry, crisp finish. Definitely get some maple sap out of the flavor. Slight soapy hints at the end too. Lighter-bodied with a voluminous carbonation. Overall very decent. I like it better than 60min.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I searched high and low for this beer and I found the last bottle at a Total Wine. Opened it that night and it pours a huge frothy head to it, even when you pour slow it takes a while for the head to disappear. Tastes of hops, citrus, grass, and a bit of orange as well. Dogfish markets this 75-Minute IPA as a perfect in-between from their 90 Minute IPA and their 60 Minute IPA and this beer does just that. Overall a great beer, if you can find it.
