3.7/5  rDev -10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Look - Beautiful glass presentation; Deep cooper-orange color; slight haze; about 1 finger of white foam.

Smell - 100% pine;

Taste - Pine and bitter citrus upfront; somewhat "puckery-tart" on the finish initially then somewhat club soda-esque as it warms.

Feel - carbonation; rich.

Overall - DFH 90 minute has been my fav for several years now, but have been leaning toward less sweet IPAs (Stone IPA or Sculpin good examples) which have some sweet notes, but aren't as vinous / malty. On the plus-side, not getting any overwhelming sweetness from the addition of 75's maple syrup. On the not so positive side, the pour is somewhat lacking in depth / dimension; would have actually benefited from some type of presence from the maple syrup.

On draft, Loosa Brews, AL.

Pours a deep golden yellow, slightly hazy. A full head of foam bubbles up, leaving medium lace that fades quickly, and with a thin ring of foam settling around the outside of the beer.

The nose is mostly sweet, malty but with a more distinct complexity of brown sugar and caramel. Subtle but present piney hops balance out the sweetness and give a good nose to this beer.

Again, sweet with that caramel and malt coming forward. Not in a “this isn’t fresh” way, just more of a malt-forward IPA as most of DFH’s “Minute” IPAs tend to be. In the back you get a re-emergence if lightly earthy, piney hops and sweet citrus peel. It’s well-balanced, and got a little of everything you’d want.

Velvety smooth, great mouthfeel for this IPA. Soft and smooth, lightly sticky, warm as it goes down.

12oz bottle, tulip glass. Darker copper body, one and half finger frothy white head, fair retention, lots of lacing. Smell is caramel, touch of brown sugary sweetness, floral notes, a bit of orange marmalaze and citrus. Flavour is a smooth, balanced caramel, brown sugar, a bit of maple perhaps, floral notes, fairly sweet toffee and a combination of grapefruit throughout. It's a solidly hopped IPA, slightly sweeter but with a less malty, cereal presence, than the typical DFH IPA, e.g. 60 or 90 Minute. Basically, less barley, more maple and sugar, serves as the sweet background to balance out the hops.

Nice darkened amber that smells of bread and pine with light citrus. Taste is piney with mild carbonation with a sweet and citrus hop finish. Mouthfeel is a little harsh but not in a bad way. Overall the 75 like the 60 and 90 are vaguely similar with this one being the tweener sweet spot. Solid brew.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look - poured from a 12 oz bottle (different from the original bottle conditioning brew). Dark golden in color with a one finger head, some lacing. Appears to be well-carbonated.
Smell - hoppy notes of citrus and pine, similar to the 60/90 minute IPAs. Closer to the 90 minute in terms of sweetness.
Taste - as with most of DFH beers, a strong malty backbone. hoppiness is not pungent, but exists as a subtle but strong background. some sweetness detected near the end, though i wouldn't be able to tell that it is maple syrup without the label. A complex and interesting brew.
Feel - medium bodied, highly carbonated, and moderately high on ABV at 7.5%. Alcohol is well-masked, as in the case with the other beers in the "__ Minute IPA" series.
Overall - a solid beer from Dogfish Head. compared to the original 750ml bottle, this beer is not as smooth and more similar in mouthfeel to 60/90 minute ipas, but flavorwise, it is fantastic. if the 60 minute doesn't pack enough punch, and the 90 minute might be a bit too much, this beer is quite a treat.
