Scopey (14511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle at Abraxas lounge, Miami Beach. It pours golden yellow, with a massive, long lasting white head. The nose is fresh pine, lots of sherbet, citrus pith and a touch of dough. The taste is sherbet, orange, tangerine, pine, dough, resin, raw hop and straw, with a bitter-dry finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Well balanced and very easy drinking for the percentage. A very good IPA. zgaier (1951) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Pours a golden orange with an off white head and sweet aroma of hops and grapefruit. Taste is similar, sweet with flavors of hops, grapefruit, and caramel with a bitter finish. Great tasting and another nice IPA from Dogfish. jjgmd (2148) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Pours a hazy golden orange, with a medium to large head. Nose is sweet and citrusy, predominately grapefruit. Nice flavor, moderate bitterness with a sweet ending. Finish is long, nice lacing, and like the taste bitter with a sweet landing. QUAFF SCORE 8 / 10 thicksuds (449) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 23, 2012
No shortage of foam on the pour, heavily carbonated, nice large head as well, very foamy. Well hopped, lacking a bit of the intensity I was expecting, a bit more watered down than I would have thought on the hop end, but still a good beer, very drinkable, very sessionable, awesome for summer. Interesting bc you really can taste the qualities of both the 60 and 90 minutes in the beer. bhensonb (15093) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Capped 750 from Half Time. Pours light golden amber with a 3 finger creamy white head. Aroma is light pitted fruit. Med+ body. Flavor is citrus, light pitted fruit and mild roast malt with a little hint of maple. Guess Iím weak on maple. For me this is dry and hoppy. Finishing that way - though there did seem to be a maple hit for a second or less. This is really good for me. Iím getting a little nutty post-finish thing in my mouth. Or maybe not.

For me, this one is a case of the whole not equaling more than the sum of the parts.
Love the 60min and 90min (and many others) from DFH, but this one was a little disappointing.
The biggest negative to me was the the heavy, syrupy mouth feel. I donít understand why it feels thicker in some ways than 90min.
Agree with many that the maply addition is nice. But I canít see myself buying more of this, whereas I do regularly buy 60, 90, and even 120 (when itís around). Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - MAY 16, 2012
tons of maple aroma. Golden orange with tons of creamy head. Smooth flavor. Maple isnít trying to hide but neither are the hips. Fantastic head retention jcos (1851) - Maryland, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle in April/May 2012, have had 3 times.mixmasterob (1057) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Appearance: Pours a gold haze, always a bit fizzy when poured.
Aroma: Citrus hop, faint mapple
Taste: Medium bitterness, balanced.
Palate:Medium light body.
Summary: I enjoyed this but not as much as I had hoped I would, canít say why.
Bottle from Dunwoody Bev. Tough to find this one. Deep golden pour with a huge fluffy white head. Seemed over carbed but overall it wasn't. Just a huge head. Aroma was sweet and citrusy, lots of caramel among the hops. Deep undertones of sweet pine. Flavors had some caramel notes, good bit of citrus with a nice dry finish. Its easy to see the 60 and 90 coming into play. Carbonation a bit higher than standard. Medium bodied. Not something I'd go after again but fun to try. Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle, from Standard Market. I am way in the minority on this beer. I love DFH but there really isnít a whole lot that is special about this one, plus the carbonation is way over the top which detracts from the flavor quite a bit, ie, hard to taste any nuance with pins and needles in your mouth. I do like the subtly sweet finish from the maple syrup. Standard grapefruit hop aroma and flavor.
