I was lucky enough to find one of these in the back of a mixed cooler. A darker pour. Smells very hoppy. A very bright hoppy flavor with a sweet subtle maple finish. Incredibly smooth for an ipa. How could an ipa brewed with maple syrup be any good? I have no idea but it is exceptional.

Pours a hazy orange gold with a one finger white frothy head. A thin film of head remains throughout. Moderate lacing. Mild aroma of herbs and citrusy hops. Taste is malt forward with a hint of maple syrup followed by grassy and citrus hops with a piney finish. Well balanced. Soft buttery mouthfeel. Moderate - light carbonation.

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

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip...

Pours a fine looking amber/gold with plenty of haze. An initial two-finger foamy head gives way to a nice collar of lacing. An excellent appearance.

The aromas are somewhat subdued, but pleasant. Solid malt sweetness up front, but with good balance. Grassy, earthy, and citrusy hops arrive as well, with a hint of barrel and booze.

The flavor is definitely skewed a bit sweet, but not necessarily from the maple. The malts are solid and biscuity., with some graham cracker notes noticeable. There is a bit of a soapy/tingly aftertaste that distracts from the primary hop notes, which are solid but nothing remarkable. Typical grapefruit, pineapple, and resin hop flavors arrive with a touch of booze at the finish.

The mouthfeel is decent, if a bit flat on the carbonation side. Medium bodied, it isn't sticky, but isn't crisp either. It is, in fact, rather "moderate" in every aspect.

Overall, a solid IPA that, nevertheless, doesn't measure up to either of the brews ostensibly blended to arrive at this one.

The inclusion of maple syrup into the brewing process makes this IPA have an interesting and defining buttery mouthfeel and flavor, setting it apart from most other brews in the style. Not something to get every day, but certainly worthwhile if you're looking for something new and challenging.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a weizen glass from a refrigerated bottle.

Look: A dark orange, amber, hazy in color with a decent head. Llooks like an amber with an orange hue.
Smell: The hop aroma is strong and heavy. I can smell the heaviness of the this beer.
Taste: Not overly sweet. I suppose maple syrup could be appreciated, but I don't notice much. Lacks any fruity/citrus presence.
Body: A heavy body but minimal carbonation. Slightly oily.

Overall: An interesting IPA. The smell is the best aspect of the beer. Its a heavy bodied IPA with minimal bitterness or fruit character. I personally could not appreciate the syrup taste, but its definite in the mouthfeel.

Amber color, slightly hazy pour with a thin, short lived head and good carbonation. Excellent aroma typical for Dogfish Head. The taste is also excellent and I can tell it's a lighter version of the 90 Minute IPA from previous experience. It has a bit of sweetness that I love in an IPA. I can't tell it's maple syrup though. Very drinkable and smooth as silk. Overall another winner from the Fabulous Brewers at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. Finally saw a six pack and didn't hesitate to grab it. My local craft beer joint has it on tap and I'll confirm the taste consistency. Poured from a 12 ounce long neck 'Bottled On 11/01/18' into a Spiegelau IPA glass. IPA lovers should try their beer in this glass.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.

L - Medium copper color and clear. Streams of minuscule bubbles are constantly rising through the beer. Persistent, off-white head is made up of sheets of tiny bubbles mixed with clusters of large, oily-appearing ones.

S - Epic levels of hop aroma combining pine, grapefruit, and cat pee. At a lower level is bready malt and darker tones like graham cracker and maple syrup. Fruity yeast note. More depth of aroma than most IPAs.

T - The malt and hops flavors are more in balance than the aroma was, with sweet, bready malt hitting first, then being balanced and finally overcome just before the finish by grapefruit and pine hops. Finish then flips back to the malt, with an off-dry hint of bread and sweetness.

F - Medium body with low but velvety carbonation that is spritzy enough to lighten the mouthfeel. Super-strong hops bitterness. With all the other sensations going on, the 7.5% alcohol does not leave much impression (it is well-hidden).

O - I am impressed by this beer because it is not one-dimension-ally focused on hops like so many IPAs are. The flavors and aromas are hop-forward enough to satisfy any hop-head, but there is also a strong influence from malt and other ingredients that keeps it complex and interesting. Very nice!

Finally got to try what sits between 60- and 90-minutes...

I have to say, this definitely better than the 60-minute version, not as good as the 90, and it would be sorely unfair to compare it to the 120 - with all that, it's a solid to decent IPA. Pouring out of the bottle into the pint glass is a copperish colored liquid that seems to show a gradient - darker at the surface and lighter towards the bottom - making it one of the more unique IPAs I've ever witnessed. The smell is also unique as it is a very nice balance between the juiciness you expect from an IPA and that hop-forward scent we all come to expect. Mouthfeel is light- to medium-bodied with an astringent effect. The taste is where I place it better than a 60 but nowhere near in the class of a 90 - nonetheless, this is still something to be experienced.

Poured from an undated bottle, I assume this is a new version of 75 minute that is not bottle conditioned. This beer is a very slightly hazy golden brown color. a compact off-white head of about an inch initially, falls quickly to a thin ring that persists. Clings like mad to the glass.

The smell strikes me as a fairly tame west coast old school IPA. Some sweet caramel maltiness, citrus that seems tangerine and orange with a floral note, then pine resin. No maple.

The taste strikes me as a typical old school IPA with much less bitterness. Tangerine and orange, floral, all dipped in a pine tree. Grapefruit juice. There is very little bitterness, but plenty of resinous pine. As it warms, sweetness emerges, but no maple. It is more of a corn syrup sweetness. There is a spice that says cardamom to me. I have enjoyed all of the Minute beers from DFH, but this seems like it doesn't share the same gene pool.

The feel is initially light, but as I drink the beer a tingling sensation builds and there is a mineral chalkiness that would both be unpleasant if there were a few more ounces to drink.

Overall, this beer does not deliver what the brewer's description implies. Granted that with no bottle date I have no idea how old this beer was. My impression is that what I am not liking has nothing to do with age. This was an expensive beer that shows up here rarely...glad I tried it, but can't honestly recommend it. This one seems to fail to deliver what it is supposed to be.

I've had this from large format a few times in previous years and on tap once or twice, a great selection to put in 12 oz. Poured into a grip shaped goblet: color is copper, transparent, head is off white with head fine to small bubbles, presents about 1 inch thick and then lingers very well with some lacing on the glass and a solid top.

Smell is light sweet malt, light toast, then grapefruit hops and light pine and earth.

Taste has more pronounced malt, subtle maple syrup, light toast, then hops come through with grapefruit rind, spruce and pine notes, earth and light spice or peppery note.

Mouthfeel is very balanced with hop bitterness, light sweet malt presence, and then a drying note.

Overall this is a brew that was once upon a time difficult to locate, but now is one where you can find at any DFH seller. It does seem to have changed a bit over the years but its difficult to state without notes. Either way, its still great and in the midst of malt/hoppy beers that I was there was more variety in this sub category.

DATE: December 26, 2018... OCCASION: watching The Office after visiting with my parents for Christmas... GLASSWARE: La Fin du Monde tulip... with a golden bronze boy, this sets its bubbles aswirl like a licking flame... its finger-thick white is resilient and creamy, steeped and clinging to the glass... strong resin, sweet maple syrup, lemon, floral hops, pine, cardamom, and toasted malts... a strong, bold nose pervades the glass... a smooth, creamy mouthfeel generates an extremely drinkable experience... its finish is reasonably lasting and mildly warming... a grainy mid-sip follows the downtuned frontal expression... the dank resin forms the basis for citrus, with lemon, pine, and cardamom meshing with strong, sweet malts.... the citrus in this wins, taking the practical, everyday glory of the 60-minute with the otherworldly phenomenon of the 90...

Light copper colored with a quarter inch of beige head. The aroma is of pine and a touch of light malt. I’m tasting plenty of pine, some light malt, and slightly sweet finish from the maple syrup. The mouth is pretty smooth and quaffable thanks to the maple syrup.

Pours a slightly hazy honey amber with a thick white head that dissipates fairly quickly but leaves nice lacing. Aroma is citrusy hop forward. Flavor is a bit sweet in front, citrus and honey with a nice little hop bitterness in the finish. Feel is medium bodied, a bit syrupy, but well carbonated. Overall a fabulous brew.

From the growler, it pours a slightly darker amber with a lovely light just off white head that slowly diminishes and leaves lacing. Citrusy in both the nose and mouth, with a solid malt base. Nice!!

sometimes i don't know what people are writing in their reviews... "piny citrus upfront, notes of cherry and tangerine, lingering bitterness." so let me say, it's pretty danm good - and none of that other stuff. no cherries or tangerines, either. maple syrup is in it, and it is far less bitter than the 60. great body, complex flavor, just... good.
