Served from a 750 ml bottle.
Appearance: Honey-colored and cloudy with a billowing white head, laces well down the glass.
Smell: Hops dominate the nose of the beer, really, really faint hint of maple syrup (?) honestly, the only reason I say that is because it's not as hop-forward as their normal IPAs.
Taste: Tart, bright, and citrusy. Good balance from the malt body and that phantom maple sugar? Again, if it wasn't on the label I wouldn't notice.
Mouthfeel: Doesn't feel excessively carbonated, definitely medium to full bodied without the oily feeling that some bigger IPAs have.
Overall: Really pleasant to drink, but nothing spectacular. I prefer it to their 60 min, and it certainly is preferable to some of the overblown imperial IPAs. It's a bit too similar to the mold, however, to be worth a repeat buy. I don't know what would happen if there was more of a maple aroma/taste to an IPA, but that was really the reason that I bought the beer in the first place, and I didn't really get that.

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.
