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.

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.

750 mL bottle from Beer Run. A loud pop as the bottle opens. Pours a clear pale amber color with a monstrous (more than half the glass) frothy tan head. Good head retention. Overcarbonated. Aroma of fresh resiny and leafy hops and the maple pops out a bit. The taste is citrus, earthy and resiny hops with a caramel and maple finish. Slight lingering bitterness and slight medicinal quality. Medium bodied and a bit muddled. Alright. Also, incidentally, my 350th IPA rating.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great great IPA...starts with a nice hoppy smooth nose pours cloudy orange with a big head and tons of lacing. Taste is super hoppy up front and the palate is bitter then finishes nice and relaxed and very refreshing. The bottle conditioning with maple makes for a more subtle backend but itís not sweet, just really well balanced. Awesome IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a semi-opaque ruddy orange. Nice head retention. Smells wonderfully hoppy: floral, resiny. Yum. Creamy mouthfeel, fine carbonation. Interesting flavor profile: standard (though well executed) ipa notes of bitterness, resin and some malt underneath, but rounded off by a gentle sweetness. Honestly not a great deal of maple syrup flavor. Canít complain though since his ipa is so well made.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Snifter from bottle. A: very aromatic, citrus, coriander, slight alcohol. App: hazy golden color with a very nice frothy, white head. Disperses at a medium rate but leaves a very nice white film the entire beer through. T: powerful hop character up front, with pine, slight citrus and a nice bite in the back that smooths out with a malty/alcoholly/sweet finish. Dish lingers profoundly for around 15-20 seconds. P: very bubbly, pretty crisp, smooth at the back.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A decent beer. Aroma was nice. Strong hoppy aroma with grapefruit rind and toffee predominant. Pour was a nice medium gold with a big pillowy 3 finger head. Taste was alright. I was hoping for some more hops, but that maple syrup is strong enough to interfere with it. It comes off as toffee and not sweet enough to call the beer sweet. Itís a bitter hoppy beer with the maple syrup/burnt toffee flavor coming up the sinuses for an aftertaste. Nice strong carbonation. Nice beer

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle of let down. Poured a hazy orange/amber under a huge frothy long lasting mostly white head. Aroma of dry citrus zest, crusty bread, dry wood, very light maple notes. Palate is average to fuller with stronger carbonation, almost chewy, dry and bitter finish. Flavor of dry wood, grassy hops, bread, hint of old maple, dry wood. This was not worth the $9.99 price tag.
