Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice. Bottled on 10/31/2013.
Appearance: Pours a fairly hazy copper golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Huge four finger off white head that actually holds up fairly well. Leaves a lot of clingy lacing around the glass.
Smell: A fruity and fairly sweet hop forward aroma with earthy hints, citrus, and sweet syrup. Hoppy upfront with earthy hints of grass and some spicy pine. Zesty citrus hop presence with hints of orange peel, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and slight apricot. Sweet bready malts with hints of caramel, toffee, biscuit, toast, and yeast. The sweet scent of maple syrup is noticeable. A very solid aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma hints at, a zesty, fruity, and fairly earthy IPA taste with a nice kick of sweet syrup. Mix of hops upfront with earthy notes of grass and spicy pine. Juicy citrus hop presence with notes of orange rind, lemon zest, pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and some apricot. Sweet and toasty malt presence with notes of caramel, toffee, yeast, biscuit, and toast. Sweet notes of the added maple syrup come through as well. A big and nicely balanced taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, creamy, and somewhat oily and syrupy. Finishes somewhat dry. Nicely smooth.
Overall: A pretty good take on a IPA. Good citrus hop presence with a solid balance of sweetness from the added maple syrup. Good to have Dogfish Head back at the MN/WIS border.

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.

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.
