4.16/5 rDev +0.7%
Poured from a 750 ml into a snifter at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit
Appearance: Hazy orange golden color; This has to be the most carbonated beer I've had with a foamy four finger off white head. It kept coming and coming and would've overflowed if I had not slurped it up.
Smell: Sweet malt characteristics I get from 90 minute and some citrus
Taste: Sweet and toasted malts upfront that mellow out to a citrus hop aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium body and just right for the style; Very smooth for an IPA, yet has moderate bitterness throughout. Exceptional
Overall: I got home and realized this bottle was 8 months old. However, unlike west coast hop bombs with the same age, this held up very well in my opinion. I may be getting more malt than when fresh, but since it's apparently malty in the first place, age isn't a huge setback. I still think that if youre going to pay $10 or more for a bomber or 750 ml, the beer should be relatively fresh, or discounted otherwise. I would love to try a fresh batch and will definitely check the dates from now on before purchasing. Still a well made beer and recommended!

Great to finally try this beer.Poured into a tulip glass a burnt orange tinged golden with a huge blooming head that ran over the glass even with gentle pour,I was not a huge fan of that.Great fresh citrus aromas along with ahint of nuttiness,not much in the maple category but the aromas are great.The label is right the mouthfeel is pretty smooth as it glides down pretty easily.Piney and citric on the palate with the malt backbone lacking a bit,it's pretty dry with the maple coming thru in the finish and aftertaste.The alcohol is well hidden the hops are generous but the malt backbone needs to be amped up a tad...in my opinion.

75 Minute IPA by Dogfish Head Brewery, American Imperial Pale Ale, 7.5% alcohol content. 750ml bomber with a very unique man somewhat tapping a keg.
A- Pours a dark orange fluid that produces a one inch creamy off white head that leaves thick pillows of lacing on the glass.
S- Rich caramel and brown sugar and sharp grassy hops bite the nose.
T-M- Taste is composed of a 90 min and 60 min mix of malty caramel, earth and mild brown sugar. In the backbone it pushes more of a fresh cut grass and citrus bite followed by a smooth mouthfeel sticking to the tongue with astreingency.
O- Drinkable as hell if you can afford it.

3.9/5 rDev -5.6%
A - Pours a slightly hazy burnt orange with three fingers of dense off-white head. Head has great retention and coats the glass with lacing. A small stream of slow rising carbonation.
S - Aroma actually seems a bit subdued, but consists of citrus, florals, a bit of grassiness and biscuit malt.
T - Nice punch of hop bitterness, combined with a subtle sweetness (residual maple syrup?) is quickly overtaken by a big biscuit malt taste. Finishes with a subtle citrus bitterness.
M - Mouthfeel is on the full side for an IPA, but is quite smooth.
O - I used to really like Dogfish Head IPAs, but have essentially stopped buying them in the last few years due mostly to the high malt presence. Having said that, I enjoyed this quite a bit and found myself drinking it pretty quickly. The dry-hopping is quite nice with this one. This is still too malty to be a go-to IPA for me, but I would have it again.
