Poured into a pint glass out of a 750ml bottle.

Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with just the tiniest bit of a fizzy head. Some bubbles form a ring around the top of the beer but it is really unremarkable.

The aroma is really a great balance of malt and hops with lots of earthy notes. Pine and tree bark from the hops works very well with the caramel from the malt and from the maple syrup I presume.

The flavor is a pretty straightforward continuation of the aroma characteristics although not quite as impressive. The hop flavors are somewhat muted with more caramel/syrup flavors coming through. There almost a quick shot of ginger up front before transitioning to a quick shot of piny hops before the caramel and a little roast comes rushing in. It all works well together but is just a little bit boring. Bitterness is light to moderate with just a very slight stickyness on the finish.

Overall, a decent IPA from Dogfish Head but far from spectacular. Glad I managed to find it but not really one worth going out of your way to pick up.

Cask at the DFH Brewpub as part of a flight.

Poured a slightly hazy brilliant orange with a dense, creamy ivory head that settles to a pillowy cap, leaving lots of sticky lacing. Nice aromas of sweet caramel malt and pungent pine resin and grapefruit hops. Typical DFH IPA aromas, but very fresh. Getting just a whisper of maple syrup from the bottle conditioning. Taste is...60 Minute meets 90 Minute (duh). Sweet caramel malt, pine and grapefruit hops, and a touch of the signature DFH yeast. Expertly combined the drinkability of 60 with the hops of 90. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with a medium body and solidly crisp carbonation. Just a great beer that combined 2 old favorites, can't wait to see this in bottles!

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.

Draining this beer into a 20oz snifter reveals a muted, hazy orange beer with a gushing, white, foamy head. There is less lacing than expected and very little sediment. This is an excellent looking IPA and the head stays thick and fluffy well into drinking. The smell however is rather lacking. It's almost all yeast with a touch of sweetness and almost no hops or maple. I want my dry hopped squall back!!! The taste is also rather modest, but definitely balanced. The aftertaste is a little funky and bitter, but not unpleasant. The mouthfeel is elegant and effervescent, maybe providing too much bubbles, but still refreshing. Overall this beer has a sweet label, but fails to impress in the wake of squall.

**when the beer warms a lot more woodnotes come out, the beer definitely changes.

Appearance: Hazy, cloudy amber with prodigious head of ornate, frilly, and beautiful lace. Lovely!

Aroma: Crisp and hoppy, with something sweet and malty present underneath it all. I want to think that it’s the maple syrup, but maybe it’s just the maltiness I’m getting, or perhaps the bottle’s been aged a bit (there seems to be no bottle dating here).

Taste: Heavy! Hops abound here, but again, there’s something else going on here. The maple syrup adds a different element — a little spicy, a little sweet. Finishes a tad dry but definitely smooth. Absolutely solid and enjoyable. A nice twist on the usual IPA.

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.

From the bottle into a tulip.

A: copper golden in color with a full three finger head which breaks down slowly leaving some thick lacing.

S: sweet citrus and pine hops.

T: hops come forward, but the taste is not overpowering. There is a sweetness unlike any other IPA I have had before. It is unusual but enjoyable.

M: moderate carbonation and mouth feel.

O: nice, but unexpected. I had some notions of this being a little sweeter because of the maple syrup, but that didn't come through for me. An interesting cross up between DFHs two very popular IPAs though.
