look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

This beer was chilled and served in a snifter.

A- A thick creamy white colored head rides a clear peach colored body. Thick lacing marks this beers passage from my glass.

S- Pine cone and resin lead the aroma. The citrus hop and tropical fruit hop aromas are far more muted than what I recall either beer being.

T- Pine resinous hops lead the flavor and last throughout the flavor. Again as in the aroma the citrus flavors are very muted. Not bad but frankly I want either 60 or 90 Minute IPA.

M- This beer is full bodied and very creamy.

O- Not a bad beer but the combination of 60 and 90 Minute IPA pale in comparison to either beer.

Poured from one of my 2 bottles into an NHL pint glass.

Looks plain old gorgeous. The color of a muted Oberon. Like an oxidized orange slice. Foggy, with a thick, just off-white head with an average pour. Lovely.

Smells of nectarines, mandarin oranges, and apricots.

I could convert ridiculous amounts of people who say they don't like IPAs with this beer, if there were more of it. It's unmistakably hoppy, but those hops are kind. Like a scalpel wielded by a really good doctor you can tell they're sharp but there's no pain. The fruit takes over too quickly. More apricots, more orange zest, more orange blossom. Then the maple syrup shows up, gently, with a woodsy-sweet finish that doesn't so much assert itself as put in an appearance that draws you in. The finish is long and superclean...just echoes of the flavors that have presented themselves already, but I do have to say that after a few breaths you taste the syrup a lot more. If you didn't know better you'd swear a winemaker had a hand in this. Well done.

I will not hesitate to get this in the future. If you can put your hands to some, don't hesitate to get it and drink it. Well worth the relatively high price tag.

Originally had this at the Chantilly location on tap, but that was just a 60/90 mix. Now reviewing a bottle of the real deal with maple.

Pours a slightly orange gold with two inches of white sudsy head, dissipates very very slowly and leaves clingy suds down the side of the glass.

Smells of strong floral and piney hops, citrus, and mild fresh grass grains.

Tastes of piney hops and fresh grain malts sweetened a bit by the subtle maple syrup flavor. Dry hop finish.

Body is medium to light with soft carbonation on the tongue and roof of the mouth.

This is really good, great balance of flavors and hops with a perfect body that leaves it very drinkable and easy to enjoy. Mixes good traits of both the 60 and the 90 but also is a beer all its own with the maple. Definitely grab this one if you see it.

Appearance - This one poured a huge fluffy white head, hazy golden orange.

Smell - very floral, juicy hops like a west coast IPA toned down

Taste - Grapefruit, papaya, mangoes, tropical fruits, pine and a VERY nice sweetness, you can actually taste the maple.

Mouthfeel - Creamy and nicely carbonated.

Overall - This is an awesome beer, really awesome.

Ahh, it's time. Finally time! I'm gonna be honest, I'm not really a fan of 90 min because I think it has too many coffee notes for an ipa. This is interesting...maple syrup eh?
Poured into a Bruery snifter, leaving a big ole head on this one...slightly orange with a frothy white head. Lacing is fantastic.
It's smell is the least impressive thing about this beer...by that I mean there really isn't much. Slight fresh hop smell, a little sugar/sweet notes going with it. hmm..
Well, the taste is pretty awesome, definetly a solid brew. Nice hop bite at the end. I believe this is a great temp for this beer because it is one that I can really taste the maple. Another amazing part of the taste is this crazy smoke flavor going on...really goes well with the maple.. totally awesome. Not getting the crazy coffee notes from the 90 either. This beer is one of the most balanced ipas iv'e ever had, honestly.
Mouthful is the best part of this beer IMO. Rich, smooth, moving from front to back of my palate. I mean, so balanced! Hops are overwhelming but definitely present. Maple syrup notes are fantastic. Really makes this beer for me. Not overdrying finish either. Great job on this one Sam!
Overall I'm glad I bought 2 of these, and might go buy more while there still around. Best of the trilogy of the minutes hands down. Crazy balanced, awesome mouthful, awesome beer. I'd recommend this to anyone!My only question is....
How long can you age this beer? Bottle conditioned and apparently ageable. Might just do so!

From cask to growler.

Poured into a brandy snifter.

Murky, dark-orange body with no head upon pour. Expected due to cask. Very low carbonation throughout.

Smells predominantly of the dry-hopped Cascades and the surprisingly strong, alcoholic aroma. Full of bitter pine and resin in the glass. As it warms to room temperature, the residual sugars of the maple syrup appear and add a nice, caramel-like sweetness to the nose. Not as potent as a CBS or DdC Printemps, but rather well-incorporated.

Opens up with the bitterness of the 90 and balanced by the caramel maltiness of the 75. Pretty cool. Maple syrup isn't much of a component in the taste though, like the smell. The 7.5% ABV is really obnoxiously obvious at the end though. It kinda kills the flavor profile. Very surprising. Decent tasting blend of an IPA overall.

Low carbonation as expected. Light-bodied. Glad to have finally tried this.

A blend of 60 and 90 with maple syrup added? Interesting.

Pours a hazy yellow with hues of orange around the edges. Massive head with a somewhat aggressive pour, but not overly so. Head seems to be sticking around, too.

Aroma is hoppy (duh). There is some mellow citrus notes in there, as well as some lemongrass and light caramel.

The flavor is quite balanced...not a hop overkill, at all. Notes of grapefruit, clove, cinnamon, vanilla, and green peppercorn come to mind. As the beer warms, the astringency of the hops becomes more and more apparent, lingering on the palate and giving the beer a subtle complexity.

I'm not getting much of the maple syrup, if at all. Perhaps, as the bottle notes, the syrup is simply to aid the aging of this beer, and to build on the malt complexity as the hops fall away.

Overall, fresh, this is a delicious beer. Hoppy, bittersweet, balanced, good. I am sure that, in a year, this will become a very different beer...and I am curious to see if the maple syrup would be more present then.

In the meantime, sip and enjoy.

The beer is a true golden color with a slight haziness. The head poured to an enormous level! 4 inches or beer produced 5 inches of head! (Note: My serving size is technically "bottle", but the 750ml bottle).

The smell is really nice! Layers of hops, acidic citrus (grapefruit and lemon), and then the subtle malt sweetness that rounds out the scent and makes me drool like a child...

Man, it tastes good! Hoppy up front, then this rush of natural citrus and sweetness all at the same time, followed by a smooth and dry finish. Usually beers achieve one or two of these characteristics but this brew combines them all into a single bottle that whispers "drink me now"...

Mouthfeel is interesting. It is smooth in the mouth but carbonated once you swallow (I know, I know, but there was no better way to say it). It is almost too carbonated but I still gave it a good score because few beers can achieve that balance, and the smooth is really nice.

Overall this beer is fantastic, a new favorite of mine. Even if you do not like IPA's, it is worth a try. I live in Delaware and have easy, tax free access to these brews but I try my best not too be too subjective or biased. Nice brew!

750ml bottle.

The pour is highly carbonated with the head actually ending up taller than the body. The body is a hazy gold and the head is continually fed by bubbles from the bottom and produces impressive lacing.

Aroma has plenty of biscuity malts alongside the solid bright citrus notes of lemons and pineapple. The maple syrup is very subtle and doesn't come through much in the nose.

Taste has the same citrus kick up front with grapefruit joining the pineapple and lemons from the nose. The malt is hefty in the background, much like the 90min and the finish is bitter with the maple syrup coming out only as it warms.

The mouthfeel is highly carbonated, almost spritzy, to the point of taking away from the beer a little.

I think this is one of the better DFH apecials to come out in a while if for no other reason than it's a mixture of 2 excellent beers. The taste really gets great as it warms and the syrup starts to come out.

Boy take a year off of paying attention to Beer News and look what pleasant surprises await....I walk into a bottle shop this afternoon and the guy at the counter goes "We have a couple bottles of 75 minute IPA left if interested". I had no clue it had been released in bottles and I'm so pleased to finally be pouring this brew into my glass!

Appearance: Pours a fairly transparent orange with a massive 4 finger white crown that shows loads of retention and lace.

Smell: Bready to toffee like malt profile with some light notes of citrus (candied grapefruit) coming forward from the cascade hops. Not as strong of a hop smell as I was hoping for. Also a tiny metallic tinge and a hint of alcohol in the nose.

Taste: Same as the nose but with some traces of grass. Definitely more hop assertive and less balanced/malty than 60 minute. Without the minor alcohol presence it would be a great "everyday ipa" imho.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with the smallest amount of chewiness. Carbonation isn't spritzy despite the massive crown.

Overall: A very nice beer and a welcome bottle release from Dogfish Head. Now if they would just get that darned price tag down.

Reviewed this before from the cask; this is a bottle pour, with a date stamp of 2012B (fresh).

I have never poured a beer with this thick a foam head- four fingers, and standing up over the rim of my oversized DFH Snifter. Hazy golden color with hints of orange. Foamy, foamy, foamy head that is VERY SLOWLY turning into thick sticky lace.

Tart smells, with citrus dominating. Very full nose of hoppy goodness. The taste is bold up front, but suprisingly softer on the finish. Hop bitterness with almost a faint hint of lemon. The foamy head (can't help but get a mouthful) is very tart and strong with hop.

Smooth feel, could have just a bit more fizz. Full body. Overall, I like this much better than the cask pour- but some of that could also be the temp, as the cask pour last year was slightly warmer, and this brew is better on the cooler side. Very good!! Plus I now have another empty for my DFH bottle collection.

A- Three fingers of fluffy white head that doesn't want to go away. Thick and drippy lacing all over the glass. Honey amber with a ton of carbonation floating up in my DFH glass. Great clarity.

S- Tangerine, pineapple and pine needles are the first burst across the nose. Hints of honey and caramel, maple syrup starts to come alive as it warms up. Little hints of alcohol blend seemlessly with the bright citrusy hops and maple sweetness.

T- Grapefruit, orange peel, lemongrass, and maple syrup. Nice woody notes along with pepper, basil, and citrus zest. Really carbonated! I was hoping this IPA would let the maple notes shine thru a bit more instead of crushing it with citrus.

M- Very zingy! Almost to carbonated. It doesn't let the maple syrup bloom. More like a Saison or Belgian IPA in mouthfeel. Certainly not bad, but zesty.

O- I've been waiting to try this one for a long time. Overly carbonated, but delicious none-the-less. Lots of citrus, and a touch of syrup. Coulda been better, but it was a really nice drinker over all.

Not the biggest DFH fan outside of their 60 minute. The 90 and 120 are not close to my favorites, but perhaps the 75 will be more like the 60 than anything else.

A-Pours a beautiful orange with a massive, massive head. Must wait for the head to die off a bit. Definitely poured too aggressively. Laces very well. Overall, perhaps one of the prettier IPAs I have come across.

S-This beer also has one hell of a nose on it. Huge doses of freshly cut orange and grapefruit flesh. Piney and floral too. Hoppy and I love it. Breaded malt and caramel sweetness. Maple is light but noticeable. I am so far quite impressed.

T-Wow! This beer is overall very delicious. Incredibly citrusy. My tongue is just smeared with resinous hoppiness. Plenty of pine too. Definitely hop forward (which is why I don't normally like DFH's IPAs because they're too sweet). Bubblegum hops. Maple is a nice little addition that sets in after the hops subside a bit. Nice lasting bitterness.

M-Bright, lively, and hop-sticky. Great feel. Nice levels of carbonation. Body is medium.

O/D-Overall, this beer blew me away. It is probably my favorite DFH brew (60 minute is its only real competition). I am happy I gave this a shot. This is a premium IPA. I truly love this one.

750ml capped bottled poured into a darkness snifter. "bottled in 2012A 20:12" on the neck.

more than half the glass is filled with a huge billowy nearly pure white head, soapy roacky, billowy. big bubbles. hazy golden orange color. tons of carbonation bubbles rushing to the top. leaves a nice thick sticky lace. looks nice, but not really IPA like. cleary there is some carbonation issues with the maple syrup bottle conditioning and all.

lots of sharp grapefruit citrus in the aroma, a little pine resin. slightly spicey. a nice bready biscuity, light caramel, sticky malt behind the hops.

very effervescent at first with that high carbonation, but as it settles it becomes really nice. some nice, slightly sharp, grapefruit citrus and a little pine resin. nicely balanced by a very 90 minute like malt. woody. sticky caramel, bready, slight candied malt. a bit of a yeast flavor towards the finish. a little bit of sweet but mostly bitter lingers.

it loses a little bit just for the big, over carbonation, but really once this settles out, its nice. medium bodied.

a really nice balanced, drinkable IPA. i can definatly get both 60 and 90 minute. awesome, i want more...

750 mL bottle, 2012, poured into a snifter

A- A hazy orange copper color with a two finger white head.

S- Citrus and tropical hops, oak, piney hops, some maple syrup, a good blend of 60 and 90.

T- Bright citrus up front, piney bitter finish with a hint of maple syrup, some oak, good malt backbone, nice balance, surprised by the amount of complexity.

M- Smooth, creamy, just enough carbonation.

O- Good beer worth getting again. I feel that Squall was better and wish this didn't replace it. Definitely will be trying to find this on cask.

750ml bottle poured into a wide mouth wine glass. Bottled 2012. Had this on tap/cask a few times so very pumped to try the bottle version.

A: Wow, this is very carbonated. Pours a very head heavy. Its a very cloudy yellow orange color. Maybe more golden towards the top. Lots of sticky lacing left on the glass.

S: I definitely pull the sweet maple notes. It really masks the hop aromas that you'd expect from a DFH IPA.

T: On the front of the tongue, you get some of those normal piney hops. It's not overpowering at all though. In the middle of the mouth, you get this strange sweetness from the malts and the maple syrup I would assume. The bottle conditioning makes for an interesting feeling too.

M: Medium bodied, strange pillow-like mouthfeel.

Poured a light hazy golden-orange color from a 750 mL bottle, with ABV on the label.
Crazy head on this one; a gentle pour resulted in almost 3/4th of the beer showing up as head. The head dissipates pretty slowly leaving residual cotton candy looking foam floating on the surface. Loads of lacing all along the insides of the glass.
Aroma upfront was hop dominant; floral hop notes with hint of pine and citrus. Hints of sweetness come through intermittently.
Taste similar to the aroma is very hoppy upfront. Prickly hoppiness gives way to a nice malt backbone, only to get drowned by the hop bitterness towards the finish. With every sip, there was a growing sweetness in the after-taste. A very well balanced IPA.
To me this is a nice sipper, which is unlike other IPA's can be enjoyed much more if it is sipped over a period of time.
Overall, this is a very good IPA from Dogfish Head. On the label they say that this beer can be aged, which is exactly what I intend to do with the other bottle.
Definitely worth a try and is recommended.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Dogfish Head Signature glass. This one was delivered to the beverage center on Thursday, consumed on Saturday.

A: Hazy light golden color. Aggressive pour leads to a humongous three finger head that fades around the outside leaving a rock-of-gibraltar sized island in the middle. The lacing is thick, heavy and coats the glass with passion.

S: Wonderful piney resin hops with grapefruit zest and sneaky good malt backbone shining through for good measure. There is a huge sweet aroma to it and I'm sure it's the maple syrup but it's hard to pick up. This is a very excellent smelling beer.

T: Perfectly balanced mix of bitter hops and sweet malts with an obvious subtle mix of maple syrup at the end of the taste. The 60 and the 90 play nicely off of one another. At this point I'm a bigger fan of the 60 due to its drinkability but I hold a serious place in my heart for the 90 due to the fact that it is responsible for getting me into craft beer and both flavor profiles mixed together in one beer make on hell of a good tasting beer.

M: Perfectly carbonated, medium bodied. Creamy, bitter finish leads me to pick up the glass over and over making this 750 go quickly.

O: This is a beer that sets the bar in my mind for IPAs. It's hoppy, it's got a subtle, yet supremely delicious malt profile, it's got an out-of-left-field quality with the maple syrup that I think sets it apart from other IPAs. It's not an IIPA but the appearance tells me otherwise. The ABV is a perfect 7.5%...just high enough to get me moving, and yet low enough to not worry about finishing the bomber on my own. Bravo, Sam et al. at DFH. You have yet another masterpiece although I'm still bummed you axed Squall...

A: Pours light copper with a huge white foamy head, very lively carbonation

S: Lots of citrusy hops with hints of pine, hints of malty sweetness and a touch of a creamy syrupy sweetness, maybe from the maple syrup

T: Lots of grapefruit and citrus hops up front, with touches of maple syrupy sweetness and just a refreshing, clean bubbliness to it. Leaves a super bitter aftertaste, however, which might not be for everyone.

O: This is quite a nice one. I think I still prefer the 90, but 75 is definitely worthy to try.

Aroma: Eclectic malts, hops, with a sweet brown sugar undertone. Very pleasant. Poured a filtered rich amber with a weak head but persistent lacing. Taste: strong hops with a flash of bitterness that lingers nicely on the rear palate; ripe bananas and sugar -- I'm hitting on that maple syrup flavor here. Rich medium body with good viscosity. Carbonation is well balanced and alcohol present but not overwhelming. Excellent drinkibility - goes down smooth. Another memorable IPA from Dogfish. Will definitely indulge again!

750 mL bottle purchased from Rick's.

Pours a glowing golden amber with low carbonation and ample suspended sediment. Airy, white head with nice retention and abundant dots of lace. Mild, weak aroma of trace maple and light pine; mildly soapy and and boozy. Flavor is less horrible than the aroma with hops taking a more dominant role and maple only adding a mild sweetness to the finish and slick texture to the body. Dry throughout the body, with pine hops and light bready malt body hiding behind the bitterness. More of an amped up 60 Min than a watered down 90 Min. Maple is a failure on the aroma, but subtlety in the flavor adds an unexpected pleasant balance and depth to the flavor. Didn't pick up the notes of dog shit that Thorpe found in this beer (and a few others tonight) but he just must have been getting too familiar with Bruce's functions tonight.

Poured into a large snifter glass. Glass of cold water on the side to sip from periodically.

Appearance: As poured the lightly hazed golden orange beer with lots of visibly active carbonation has a 1 ½” thick, off-white, fluffy head of foam that recedes fairly slowly. As the billowing hills and valleys of foam recede there are legs, streaks and patches of lacing on the sides of the glass. Sipping creates a sheet of foam that turns into a collection of small streaks and speckles of lacing that cling to the sides of the glass.

Smell: The aroma is citric (grapefruit rind) and pine resin with a touch of floral character. There seems to be a bit of maple syrup showing, but I’m not sure I’d have spotted it as maple syrup if I had not known syrup was used in bottle conditioning the beer.

Taste: The flavor shows a bit of sweet caramel from the malt backbone along with the citrus rind and pine resin from the hops. This one is fresh enough that there is also a touch of maple syrup flavor showing up now and then, here and there before the finish.

Mouthfeel: The mouth feel is medium bodied and slightly prickly with the more than adequate carbonation. The finish is medium long, beginning in citrus and pine tinged malt and then trailing off into a citric and resinous bitterness backed up by a touch of maple that slides away into bitter dryness, inviting the next sip.

Drinkability and Overall Impression: This was an enjoyable beer that was easily drinkable. Its family heritage is obvious from the first sniff and the first sip. My overall impression is that if you like either of the two parent beers (the 60 min or the 90 min) this is worth a try. That said I’ll not go out of my way to have this one again. It’s a good beer and definitely an “in-between” beer but I never felt the need of an “in-between” beer and don’t know that this one has convinced me.

I was glad to see that Dogfish Head decided to bottle 75 Minute. I wasn't sure when I would have had the chance to get down to the brewpub and try this one.

Poured from a 25.4 ounce champagne bottle into my Dogfish Head signature glass.

Appearance: The first thing I notice about the pour is the three huge fingers of dense white head. Long after the pour was finished the head lingered slowly retreating into concentric rings of sticky lacing. As for the beer, it pours a hazy light orange. Nice looking beer.

Smell: Big citrus hops with some sweetness on the tail end. I'm not sure if the sweetness is from the maple syrup or just regular maltiness.

Taste: Starts off with some malty sweetness, but then quickly shifts into IPA territory with some intense bitterness and fresh, clean piney notes. The finish is sweet and I can definitely pick out some maple syrup notes. Taste is quite interesting. You can definitely pick out characteristics of 60 Minute and 90 Minute. I dig it.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and sticky...slightly resinous. No detectable alcohol taste. As for drinkability, I think one is good for the night.

Overall: As the bottle says sometimes 90 is too much and 60 is too little. In my opinion, 75 Minute IPA takes the best qualities of its two component beers. I'd still like to get down to Rehoboth and try it from the cask.

on cask at devils den in philly

Pours a clouded orange color with some golden straw hues. Crop of creamy white head slowly dissolves with some wispy retention. Plenty of patchy rings of lacing on the glass.

Some citrusy hops in the nose with a decent amount of sweetness. There's a hint of the maple I suppose, but more of a caramel bready touch from the malt.

Nice bitterness up front with plenty of citrus flavor. Tangerine and grapefruit with a soft notion of tropical tones. A little sweet with maple and caramel throughout the somewhat bready malt backbone. Finishes fairly bitter and creamy.

Medium body, milder carbonation, creamy and slick on the tongue, very easy drinking. This is pretty nice, I enjoyed the cask effect although I felt the nose was pretty muted.
