750ml bottle purchased for $9.99 at Wegmans in Downingtown, PA. Bottled on date only listed as "bottled in 2012", and then what looks like a time stamp of 11:50. Not super helpful, but whatever. Pours a moderately hazy light copper color, with strawberry blonde hues when held up to the light. A little over 2 fingers of bright white head hangs around for a while before receding to a cap and leaves nice patches of lace.
A lot of dank, herbal pine in the nose, accompanied by some grapefruit rind, slight pineapple, and some sweet malts. Not really getting any maple syrup in the nose, but still a great smelling IPA.
Some juicy citrus hops greet the palette at first, with mostly grapefruit and grapefruit rind with a little mango, then some sweet caramel malts in the middle of the tongue before finishing off with a nice, healthy dose of piney bitterness that is cut by some faint maple syrup sweetness. A little, almost tart-like pineapple is noticeable in the finish as well. Still not getting as much maple syrup as I'd hoped for, but definitely much more noticeable in the taste than the smell.
Medium bodied with crisp carbonation and a bittering, dry finish. Smooth. The hops linger for a little in the mouth, but aren't overbearing.
This is very, very good stuff here, folks. I would have liked just a tad more maple syrup, but the rest of the beer is a super solid IPA, borderline dIPA territory with the heady hop profile. The more I drink unfiltered IPA's, the more I'm coming to realize that that is where the flavor I want is. Grab it if you can.

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.
