4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass from a 750ml bottle with a smudged date, but itís from the first batch and itís fresh.
A: Hazy amber body with a very active pour creating a towering white rocky foamy head even with a gentle pour.
S: Pine and orange bitterness with a very slight maple sweetness. Rather tame, slightly sweet.
T: Slightly sweet maple up-front into a moderately bitter pine and grapefruit hops and finishes with a slightly sweet maple. Hops linger for a bit.
M: Medium bodied with a lot of soft carbonation that sharpens up at the end.
O:Solid rendition of two favorites with a twist. This beer paired well with a maple bacon cheddar accenting the maple in the beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle from Beverage World. Pours slightly hazed dark orange with white head. Aromas of grassy hops, nice citrus, light pine, and some sweet malts. Flavors of muted pine and citrus, grassy hops, and somemae syrup. Carbonation was bright and was easy drinking. Not a huge fan of the 60 or 90 from what I remember, but this was solid.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a hazy yellow/orange with very fluffy white head. Aroma is very citrusy floral with notes if grapefruit and pine with nice fruity esters and maltiness. Flavor is much the same with a citrusy tang, light sweetness and nice, aggressive but balanced bitterness. Medium mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation. Overall, great brew!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL? bottle? from North Court beverage, pour yields a ginormous white fluffy head, taste is precisely a blend of 60 and 90 minute, which unfortunately Iíd prefer just 90 min by itself.. i really couldnt find the maple here.. i tried and looked but missed it.. so i was left with just an IPA.. oh well still tasty.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(750ml bottle from Total Wine Henderson). Pours copper/amber color with fluffy eggshell head. Aroma is green hops, oak, and something putrid? Taste is malt forward with some bitterness. Watery. Not getting much from the maple here. Iím pretty shocked at how little I like this. Just. Not. Good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle: pours hazy orange with thick, 2 finger head that sticks on the glass and goes nowhere. Really appealing. fruity peach, citrus, pine are subtle earthiness on the nose. more mineral, earthy tones, grassy malts, maple sweetness once on the palate. mild bitterness considering 60 and 90 are mixed in there. The dry-hopping produced less resinous hop tones that I actually think makes this more balanced. pleasant and drinkable

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 22 oz. bottle.
Pours a sparkling golden amber with a HUGE frothy read that lingers. Excellent lacing.
Aroma: Piney, citrusy hops with a hint of malt underneath. Some light fruit.
Taste: Citrusy and fruity. Orange zest. Just a hint of malt. Bitter, but not overly so.
Medium body with light carbonation.
A very pleasant, easy to drink beer despite its 7.5% ABV. Quite far from what I expected in a 60/90 Minute hybrid. Still, very tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle from SoHo Organic Market in Elizabeth City, NC. Dark orange pour with a huge off-white head. Aroma of roses, Earth, and wet grass. There are hints of the maple syrup in the flavor but mostly this is floral hops and grapefruit rind. I donít think this is as good as 60 Minute and certainly not as good as 90 Minute but it is still a good IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a nonic pint glass
Pours a cloudy light golden amber with a clean white three to four finger head. Beautiful lacing present as the head subsides. The aroma of earthy hops and sweet malt dominate. Intially the taste of grassy hops and grain moves to slightly sweet malt and finishes dry with the mildest sweetness and a return to grassy hops. Abundant carbonation and malt backbone translate into a heavier medium body with a slick and satisfying mouthfeel. Just like most DFH brews, a unique and interesting brew which combines some the best aspects of 60 min and 90 min with some new surprises.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle, 2012C batch. Served at around 40-45F.
Pours lightly hazy golden amber with a large fluffy white head that leaves clumpy rings of lacing and holds a great cap.
Aroma is floral and grassy hops, some citrus and pine, bread & caramel, not much maple syrup on the nose. Good strength.
Flavor is quite nice, with mostly citrusy hops, some grass & a bit of pine, fair caramel malt backbone offering some sweetness, maple syrup comes through pretty well, finishes with good bitterness and a touch of alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a bit oily and sticky with sharp carbonation.
For not being the biggest fan of 60 and particularly 90 Minute, Iím pretty impressed by this one. Nice and hoppy, well balanced and the maple syrup adds a nice touch. Good one!
