750ml bottle - $7.99 at Total Wine & More in Atlanta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pour gently. No, gentler than that. I'm telling you, you need to--great, that's just great -- hazed, burnished gold body with a tall, long-lasting head stand of off-white foam.

Smell: Slices and slivers off fresh mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and sweet oranges atop sensibly-toasted biscuits marked by notes of resins, grasses, florals, and a little bit of maple.

Taste: Sweet touches of caramel and even maple paired with toasted bread, toasted biscuits. It's a brief malty meet-and-greet, you know, a few handshakes, hellos, then, it's off to the tropical, vibrantly fruity hops cut with some floral, resinous tones. Slight grassiness. Medium-plus bitterness. Slight hint of the alcohol. Small revival of the initial sweetness before the fruity, bittersweet finish that's just nice and sudsy from the carbonation.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Very slight viscous oiliness to the mouthfeel. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: I rather enjoyed myself. Delightful array of hop flavors smoothed with that little hint of maple and the vigorous carbonation is very effective at keeping things moving along nicely.

750 mL bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - The bottle overflows two pint glasses, so I pour some overflow into a snifter. I'm reviewing from the pint, though. Pours a clear deep orange with a previously-stated giant head. Good retention and sticky, but odd looking lacing.

Smell - Hops are the dominant flavor, but not overwhelming the aroma the way I'd like. Tough to even distinguish the hop flavors. Pine, citrus, floral all at once, so it's just consolidated hop flavor. Sweet aroma behind it.

Taste - Hoppy flavor, no surprise, but again it's indistinct hops. Strong malt, but not sweet like 90. Definitely stronger than 60, with just a touch of caramel. The finish is distinctly maple with some bitterness. The maple really redeems the beer.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Lower carbonation for an IPA. The maple finish tempers the bitterness and keeps it interesting.

Overall - It's good. It's not great. The maple is the most interesting part, because the hop profile is boring.

From 03/26/11 notes. Had on tap at the Falls Church, VA Ale House.

a - Pours an amber color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells pine hops, grapefruit, citrus hops, and light alcohol.

t - Tastes pine hops, citrus hops, fruity malts, grapefruit, and light caramel malts maybe. Light bitterness but not much as all.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation.

o - Overall another nice IPA from DFH; if you like 60 and 90 minute, you'll like this one. I liked it more than 60 minute and about on par with 90 minute. Some nice pine hops jump out the most in the smell, and the taste wasn't too bitter. Would certainly order it again and wish they bottled it.

Had on cask at the DFH brewpub in Rehoboth.

A: Pours a hazy amber/copper color with the whitest foam head I have ever seen. Extremely tight on top with great retention and really nice lacing. Possibly the best poured beer I have ever had.

S: Nice hoppy aroma, citrus fruits - some orange and grapefruit. Some caramel malt and maple understones as well.

T: Love this beer. Has a great combination of bitter hops and sweetness. There is some brown sugar and caramel and citrus fruits, similar to the aroma with orange, orange peel, and grapefruit.

M: Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Has a perfectly sticky finish. Very creamy coming from the cask.

O: Easily one of my favorite beers, especially on cask, making it nice and creamy. It is not as sweet as 90 and hoppier than 60. Extremely easy drinking, and my go to beer when I am at DFH.

I had this thanks to tenderbranson69, enjoyed chilled in a willbecker.
This one foamed up when I used my usual pouring technique, must be the bottle conditioning.

The color is golden amber with a light haze and 3 fingers of foam with good lace. The smell has a strong floral and slight citrus character with slight pine from the hops and mild caramel sweetness in the nose with light candy tinge and mild alcohol scent. The feel is caramel, malt and slight piney bitterness which is balanced pretty well between the malt with slight bitter and mild sweet middle. The body is creamy and mostly bitter in the semi-dry finish.

Flavors of pine come forward with slight stone fruit tinges and mild floral aspects come in with light caramel and toasted malt flavors after the hops and sweetness wear off a bit. The nutty biscuit-like toasted taste is good adds dimension to the maple syrup and caramel malt while the mild spice of the hops keeps everything nicely balanced. There is an alcohol tinge with piney note and slight woody maple in the last sips. Overall a wonderfully complex beer, very drinkable and I enjoy the blend of 60 + 90 they have achieved. most IPA's aren't this well rounded and I recommend you get a bottle if you are on the fence.

amber with a frothy white/creamy head and some decent lacing. Smell was a citrus hops, mixed with a malty caramel thta makes this smell quite balanced. Taste was definatly hoppy, and again had that bit of caramel, and some spiceness about it. Very nice dry finish and not overpowering on the hops. This is a good session beer and will definatly have more.

Pours an orange-amber out of the bottle that I purchased at Wegmans in Geneseo, NY. Great label, by the way. A 2 inch head forms, with significant lacing.

Aroma is of piney hops, sweet malt, and some pineapple.

The taste is awesome, love it. 75 Minute is my favorite of the various minutes in this series. A crisp hop bite brings flavors of grapefruit and pine, with some sweetness brought on by the maple syrup in the middle. The maple also brings a nice earthiness that plays of the sweet malt flavors- caramel, mainly, well. A large group of different flavors that play nicely together.

Full, creamy mouthfeel brought on by the well-done bottle conditioning. The maple seems to be the culprit in making the mouthfeel so nice.

A well executed blend here.

Note:
I've had the simpler cask version at the brewpub in Rehoboth. This is a much simpler form of the beer- simply a mix of 60 and 90 dry hopped in the "Johnny Cask," with maple syrup. The bottle version is a different brew- mixing the recipes for 60 and 90, but not actually blending the beer, then bottle conditioning with maple syrup. The cask version is excellent, the maple is a bit more pronounced, and the mouthfeel is dynamite, soft and lightly carbonated. It's less hoppy than the bottle version, though.

Poured into a Southern Tier tulip.

Pours an orangish amber with a mountain of soft, white, foamy, head that has fantastic retention. The nose has an intense floral aroma with a slight, piny undertone. The flavor is bready and malty up front, but quickly becomes earthy and hoppy with some piny, citrusy hops. In the finish the maple becomes very evident. The maple syrup adds body and an earthiness to the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, thick, smooth, and well carbonated.

This is a damn good beer. I like the earthy, smoothness that the maple syrup adds. It's definitely shares the hoppiness of the 60 min with the malt character of the 90 min. It's delicious. It's definitely worth a try.
