Cask conditioned (at Dogfish Head in rehoboth!) into a pint glass.

Appears A dark golden with a finger of foamy head.

Smells of bitter hops with little malt.

Tastes Great. A little malty and bready and pleasantly not too effervescent.

Mouthfeel is great too but maybe it's the cask. Really Bice creaminess.

Overall a great experience and I'm happy I'm here. A reason to come back!

No cask 75 in Va, just blended at the tap by the local bartender. Pours a nice amber color with a frothy head which dissipates quickly. Smells sweet like the 90 with a nice piney hop from the fresh 60. Taste is full bodied with a great hop complexity shifting from piney, resiny, citrusy, and floral hops. Definitely an 85.

A: Poured a cloudy golden color with burnt orange hues. The head was huge, I mean massive. Even with a gentle pour the thing exploded out of the glass. Stuck to everything and left the glass coated from top to bottom.

S: Lemon and grassy hops jump out. There is a nice herbal quality to the entire nose. Slight bit of grapefruit in the back. Nice amounts of baked bread or white biscuit. Kind of peppery at times.

T: Punch of lemon upfront then lots of herbal hops and bit of pepper. The middle is very grassy. At the base of each swig is a white dinner roll with some nutty sweetness in the end. The more I drink this the more the lemon turns to pure grapefruit and persists with the grassy hops.

M: Very buttery, soft and kind of a light feel. Not fizzy as expected. It has some weight and feels whole but is on the thin side. Not syrupy. Unique.

O: Very enjoyable and I could drink several in a row. A nice fragrant and thoroughly enjoyable brew. This might just be better than the sum of its parts. Seems like the perfect pint to toss back in the sun.

On cask at brewpub. Feel is rated accordingly and doesn't reflect a keg pour.

L: Amber. Darker than I like for ipa.
S: honeyed.
T: sweeter than expected. Maybe it's the little w carbonation reading as a heavier than expected body.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

25 oz capped bottle, “filled in” code not legible.
Poured into a British Imp Nonic

Pours a large, frothy, two finger, white colored head, with very good longevity and excellent, sticky, lace which clings to the glass.
Medium yellow amber. A beautiful Ale.

The aroma starts off with distinct hops, dry hopping is quite noticeable, floral, spicy, with a hint of pine and resin, very refined but somewhat lacking in intensity for this style. This is followed by a medium distinct, rich malt, nice, balanced, faintly toasty but again seems muted.

Nice crisp entry on the palate of medium distinct bitter hops, dry hopped, and some spice and resin. The malt is medium distinct, refined, toasty with a good ale yeast presence. This ale has a medium full body, with a fine carbonation and a off dry sweetness. Balanced all around.

The finish is long, nice bitter hops and toasty malt. Some lingering hop oils.

This is a very good ale, but I must admit I am underwhelmed by the overall intensity. There is no way this is between the 60 and 90 minute IPA’s as both of them have more going on IMO. However I do not know the filled in date so maybe this was old?
That being said this Ale is very refreshing to drink with that bottle conditioned mouth feel and taste despite the cap closure. A session beer for me.
Worth a test drive.

Had on cask at Sunset in Boston.

Reviewed on my mobile, so apologies for brevity.

A - Honey orange that appears very foggy right after the pour, mainly due to the cask pour. Turns into thick head that lingers for a while.

S - The smell is piney, resiny hops. There's a bit of fruit sweetness in the nose.

T - This is a situation where the combination is greater than the sum of its parts. Delicious, bitter, slightly sweet IPA. Wonderful beer.

M - The only lacking section is the mouthfeel. The bitterness holds on a bit too long without the malts quite to balance it out.

Overall, this is my favorite minute IPA from DFH. As I said before, it takes the best parts of 60 and 90 and makes them better. I'll seek this out again.

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!

Very good beer. Pours an amber color with incredibly thick head. Creates a foamy lacing. To me it has a smokey flavor, malts, and with a hint of the normal Dogfish Head citrus arrangement. You can smell the citrus more than you can taste it. The smokey/malt flavor might be a little of the maple coming out.

On tap -> pint glass at Dogfish Head Ale House in Falls Church, MD. My buddy and I had dinner and drinks here before the Mike Gordon Band show at the State Theater. This is a rare treat.

A - Crystal clear, light copper. Thin white medium bubbled head. Good sticky lacing and carb streams.

S - Mild piney hop notes, not much more there

T - Much improved over the aroma. Same piney hop notes but with more depth. The bitterness opens up to a mild sweetness through the middle and finished sweet and tart.

M - Medium to medium light bodied. Not much else

O - As stated in some other reviews if you like the 60 Min IPA and enjoy the 90 Min IPA but often steer clear of the 90, this one is perfect for you. This one has all the developed IPA flavors but without the punch of alcohol or heft on the palate. This is a good session-able IPA for me. Though, I have a feeling that this too would sneak up on me even at 7.5%. I'd order again whenever I'm at the Alehouse or at the Rehoboth brew pub.

A-Poured into my DFH snifter glass. 2.5 finger head that stays till the end of the glass. A clear Light amber color.

S-Smells similar to the 60 min., a very floral hoppy aroma with notes of sweet tropical fruits. I'm not picking up any maple syrup in the nose.

T-Opens up with a heavy sweet malty flavor that follows the nose. Then the hops creep in to balance out the sweetness, but are pretty mild. Im struggling to taste any maple syrup though which is a bit of a disappointment.

M-Nice smooth mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

O-A solid beer, but pretty similar to the 60 min., but with a little more malt flavor. Somewhat disappointed that I couldn't taste the maple syrup because I think that would have really elevated this beer to the next level. Would buy again if they offered it as a 4/6 pack option but not worth the 750ml treatment/premium.

Been wanting to try this for a quite a while being a DFH fan and enjoying the 60 and 90 minute offerings so much.

A - Not that this classifies as appearance too much, but im a big fan of the bottle and label. Poured into a pint glass. Dark golden color, almost clear with little cloudiness at all. Giant bright white head on it that hangs around for the duration of drinking it.

S - Nice Hoppy smell to it as expected with the 90 minute IPA mixed in, small notes of the maple syrup that was added to make it something unique to its own.

T - Solid IPA. really would categorize this closer to the 90 minute than the 60 minute. Some sweet notes and some fruit in there. Very DFH like in tastes with generous hops. Some alcohol warmth to it, but very drinkable and good.

M - well balanced. Just enough carbonation, but very smooth. Typical DFH brew.

O - Definitely would try again. I am rarely if ever let down by DFH and their IPA offerings. I would put this closer to the 90 min but with that small twist of maple added to it. Good Stuff.

A hazy yellow-orange beer with medium carbonation and an ephemeral head.

Aroma of pine, grapefruit, mild floral, caramel and maple with a medium intensity for the style.

Flavor is like the aroma, but the maple doesn't add much to the flavor. Mild sweetness and medium bitterness with a medium sustain.

Overall, it's well made IPA that was free of defects. The alcohol was well hidden and the bitterness wasn't too extreme. Enjoyable.

On tap at the Dogfish Head Alehouse in MD.

Deep golden color with a weird head that's solid but weak. Not much lacing on the glass which I expect from an IPA.

Hops, floral, herbal notes. Very powerful but bland.

Nice sweetness on the tongue. Hops and malts don't really mix at all, and the hops don't really mix well as there are like five different profiles competing for top dog. Really weird mouth feel. Nice deep finish.

This is probably the cheapest but most powerful brew that the Alehouse has. A whole pint for 5 bucks of two of the best IPA's mixed. Very drinkable.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a dogfish head signature glass...

Pours with a huge, off-white head that lingers, looks great. Lacing sticks to the glass and remains throughout. Beer itself starts out at a hazy orange colour, clears up as it hits it's ideal serving temp, and goes back to hazy orange as it warms to room temp.

Smells citrusy sweet. Can definitely detect the malt backbone and the maple syrup, even with a nose that's hampered by seasonal allergies.

Taste starts off citrusy, turns bitter, and finishes sweet. Lots of nice carmel notes on the finish.

Mouthfeel is great. Carbonation is almost perfect for a bottle conditioned beer.

All in all, a very good beer. Very happy that my beer guy held onto a bottle for me. I think this would age very well - disappointed that I couldn't get a second bottle to test this theory, but not much of the good stuff from DFH makes it to texas...

Poured from a bomber into my DFH signature glass

A- pours a clear dark copper color, nice steady stream of bubbles rise to the surface, a one finger white fluffy head appears on the pour and dissipates after a few minutes, decent lace left on the glass

S- sweet and hoppy, citrus fruits, slightly woody, i'm getting some spices mostly pepper

T- starts light and sweet, moves into a pretty strong hop punch, woodiness, the hops are more grassy than citrus, i feel like the flavor is lacking

M- medium-light body with a silky feel, fairly high carbonation, finishes dry and clean

O- I wasn't impressed with this one, i wish the hops would have brought a little more character to this brew, i'm kinda surprised everyone else rated it so highly, 60 and 90 are much better brews from DFH

Damn! Overpoured into my Kuhnhenn tulip. I'll have to wait till the head goes down...
Here we go, I'm really looking forward to this one. I remember seeing the original label with the Man In Black on it (without the glasses).
Great looking golden-amber hue. Once settled, about a half-finger of head lingers. Has that distintive Dogfish smell to it, a nice balance of citrus hops and maltiness. I do pick up some woody notes, which I assume is the maple syrup. It has a slight, what I'm picking up as, an off-putting vinegar smell. The taste is nicely balanced between hop bitterness and malt backbone, however, I do pick up some small green apple notes. I pick up the maple syrup at the end of the sip, which I think is well done. Not too much to overpower the sweetness. Mouthfeel is on point and well-carbonated. Overall, a good IPA, and I'm glad I finally got the chance to try it. I guess I might have been expecting more though.

Bomber into crispin glass...major head with delicate pour which doesn't bother me in good ipa cause I like to warm it for full flavor. Hazy orangish hop filled. Hop zesty goodness another good job by dogfish get you thinking what this reminds you of. I smell Gordon bierch marzen malt back bone with crazy hops to follow. Tastes of hops and malts and maple syrup that will have your tongue going for all the sugary aftertaste! Med/high Carb that the hops entertain your tongue . Overall my favorite of ipas from dogfish. I would love to try on tap and ran out bought up remaining 4 from local bottle shop at $12 a 22!! If was available would drink like 2 hearted or stone when desiring good ipa!! Really good taste great drinkability and German malt or something foreign catches my tastebuds that really balances it!!

Poured from a Bomber into my RR tulip

Appearance: Deep straw-golden color. Hazy with an off white head.

Smell: I smell caramel and slight maple. Then some citrusy grapefruit and orange zest.

Taste: Subtle citrus hops pair well with the maple syrup. I think the syrup is what ties this one together. As it warms, the citrus and alcohol are more prevalent on the back end. I really like how balanced it drinks too.

Mouthfeel: On the heavier side of medium bodied. Very drinkable.

Overall: IMO, a better version of the 60 minute. Not as malty as the 90, and far more complex than the 60. Again, I suspect this is where the syrup is the difference maker. Highly recommend and it is also reasonably priced at $7 a bomber--though this is pretty hard to find in ATL.

Pours a drab orange color with a rocky, off white head. Smells strongly of citrus. I get notes of lemons and oranges, maraschino cherries, guava, papaya, maple syrup and fresh pineapple.

It tastes like you're getting the best of both worlds from the drinkability of 60 minute and the taste of 90 minute IPA but with a little twist . Notes of graham crackers, grapefruit pith, amaretto, fresh tropical fruit, muscovado sugar, very mild spearmint, chocolate covered raisins, chai tea, pistachios, ginger, and mild caramel candy on the palate.

Hoppy and bittersweet with notes of dark fruits like dates and currants.. There's a really nice yeasty, glazed cinnamon bun and maple syrup undertone on the aftertaste.

Feel is dry, slightly effervescent and moderately carbonated.

If I ever get a chance to make it to the Dogfish Head brewery, this is going to be one I'd be dying to try fresh on tap.

A - The Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA pours into a chalice a clear gold, with a gigantic off-white head.

S - ...wonderful fresh hop aroma; citrus with a hint of pine.

T - This review is going to be biased because I'm a dry-hop head. The hops dominate, more so than in the 90-minute Dogfish offering, imo. The taste rotates between bitter notes and hints of sweetness; malts instrumental in giving this beer its balance.

M - Marvelous. The body is akin to a "bigger" beer. But, that's okay with me.

O - Terrific brew. Hop heads will love it. Not as strong a dry-hop experience as a SN Torpedo, but reminiscent. It's more balanced than a Torpedo. Simply delicious.

The difference between tasting this beer poured from the cask and drinking it from a bottle is akin to the difference between the minor and the major leagues.

From the cask this beer has the perfect aroma of citrus and hops.

The greatest thing is how it feels. It is dangerous drink since it feels creamy and pleasurable, like a tall glass of chocolate milk.

Poured a medium golden amber that was very minimally translucent and appeared to be totally filtered. Produced a large, froathy, inconsistently dense laced head that remained for a considerably long period of time. The smells are not overly robust with hoppy explosiveness. They are darker hop smells along the pine side. The maple syrup 'bottle-conditioning' is not very detectable. This one might have a little age to it. Malts are noticeable. It seems as though it should be heavier than 7.50 abv. The mouthfeel has a solid bitterness which is expected from the smells alone. I know these have been around for a bit but I'm first seeing them in Chicago the last few weeks. I want to say it would be better fresher. This one, at least, doesn't compare to 90 Min. Glad I tried it.

Cheers!

Appearance: light copper color no head

Aroma: very citrus and sweet, reminded me of a fresh grapefruit

Taste: sweet and citrus but the sweet was a fruit taste not from the malt. The taste was so good and unique I really liked the taste

Mouth Feel: I had this on cask so not much carbonation and no head but real easy to sip.

Wow I loved this beer very yummy. I could make this a session beer even tho it has 7.5% abv

Cheers

This IPA had a nice soft citrus taste. It was not extremely hoppy, but the presence of the cascade hops is definitely noticeable. I had Dogfish 60, 90 & 120 minute IPA's and I favor this one the most. Unfortunately, it is very limited. If you enjoy an IPA that is not extremely powerful (ex. imperial IPA), I would recommend drinking this. It's 7.5% ABV. The appearance has a nice golden/orange hue. I was expecting to taste more maple syrup because Dogfish uniquely use this ingredient when they blend the 60 & 90 minute together. However, I did notice a slight sweetness to the beer that I find enjoyable. This beer is limited and I suggest you try tasting it before it is gone. You will not be disappointed.

No "enjoy by" date.
Poured slowly into a standard pint glass.

A: It poured to a thick, dense, cream colored, three-finger head. The color was a light copper to almost golden, and a little cloudy. It was clear enough to see the carbon bubbles raising.

S: The aroma has a touch of sweetness and some light pine hops. The aroma was very mild.

M: It has a medium to heavy body and a lot of carbonation, and it leaves a slick coating.

T: It begins with a hop rush that is earthy with a little pine. It is a big hop taste that is balanced by the molassas sweetness.

O: A pleasantly earthy, piney hop bomb. The molassas keeps the bitterness from going over the top.
This is an interesting take on an IPA. It stands out from a crowded feild. It is bold in the eathyness of the hops and the molassas provides a backbone that is strong enough to offset the hops and stand out on its own because to the sweet molassas flavor.
