Split a 750mL bottle with a friend last weekend. Served in an IPA glass.

A: Hazy/cloudy, amber-orange body; 2 fingers worth of white, rocky foam; good head retention and sticky rings of lacing mark notches down the side of the glass on the drink down.

S: Hop forward on the nose - like fresh grated citrus zest, orange peel and pine needles; there is a noticeable honey sweetness on the nose as well - I wonder if this is actually the maple syrup? In any case, it seems to have more of a honey quality than maple syrup; some stale cracker notes peek from behind the sweetness; as the glass warms, the sweetness competes with a growing whiff of fusel alcohol.

T: Following the nose, the initial dose of flavor is citrus zest and pine needles, contributing to a bittering initial impression; then the bitterness is eased with suggestions of honey sweetness - again, I'm guessing this probably has something to do with the maple syrup, but it tastes like honey, not syrup; stale cracker and biscuit from the malt profile grow beneath the sweetness, lending some balance to the initial hoppy burst, transitioning into the finish which sees lingering notes of pithy citrus quickly dry up as a growing pep of alcohol makes its presence felt.

M: Slightly syrupy, soft body, with very fine carbonation; the bottle conditioning works quite nicely.

O: I'll say this, 75min is an exercise in compromise, and while it is a solid IPA, I'm not sure it is necessarily better than it's component parts. 90min is one of my higher rated IPAs (admittedly, a style category that I'm not the most fond of) and one common knock against it that I often hear is that it is too sweet (I personally don't mind the sweetness). On the other hand, 60min is a solid IPA, but without the same intensity or complexity of the 90min. 75min splits the middle - hop forward, not to sweet, but with enough balance between the two. Unfortunately, the addition of maple syrup seems to fall flat - it didn't have the kind of impact on the palate that I was expecting, and there wasn't any real noticeable maple flavor at all. The bottle conditioning, however, was a nice twist, and the mouthfeel was one of the better aspects of this beer. Worth a try, sure, DFH's quality at least earns my money for one bottle, but I'm not sure I would reach for this again over the 90min.

Appearance - a golden apricot pour, lots of bubbly tendrils shooting up from below. Light cream-colored head, pocky and sturdy.

Aroma - a whiff of citrus and pine, some vague nuttiness that is probably the maple syrup. Light but not the most aromatic.

Taste - the taste is similar, though the malt base is more stated and lays out a nice canvas for the other flavors to work from. The hops have a good citrus and bitter balance, and the aftertaste is showing some dryness and perhaps nutty tones, but I don't think I would know there's maple in here if it wasn't stated on the label. This has a flavor that suggests a Belgian yeast strain, could just be the age of the bottle and waning of certain elements.

Mouthfeel - fluffy and well-carbonated, solid weight.

Overall - good beer, I'd have it again, especially if I saw it on tap.

Very nice IPA for the winter. The cascade hops and the maple syrup make a really nice combination. Might smell and taste like any other IPA but all the features are there. Did not get any yeast from the first pour but some did get disturbed for the second glass. Very good winter IPA. Cheers!

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.
