I have no idea why it took so long for me to track this beer down; but now here we are, honey. 750ML bottle with the best use of a made-up word I’ve seen in quite a while.

The pour is all IPA, all day: orange, with a small number of now-sunken pieces of particulate matter that must have escaped the gravity of the Large Hadron Collider. The nose is very sweet, which I’ll attribute to the syrup, sans footnote, with a strong presence of jack pines. My favorite kind. We take “pine baths” after several days in the wilderness by walking through a stand of pines & rubbing the needles all over our hands & clothes. But I digress.

75 Minute is exquisitely balanced. The shadows of 60 and 90 Minute are all over this: the expansive pine needles & heavy bittering that clings to the roof of the mouth long after the liquid has passed south. Heavy sweetness sweeps in mid-palate; syrup. Maple syrup. I couldn’t identify the body if it wasn’t on the label, but the fingerprint is there. Very dry & totally suckable.

Straight-up simple, old-school IPA with some Three Rivers stirred in (if you haven’t had Three River Maple Syrup, go, buy). I prefer it’s cousins up & down the numerical column, but this is very good.

Poured a golden orange color with at minimum two fingers worth of white head. There is a pine smell mixed evenly with a strong citrus smell to complete the nose. The taste has a good amount of malt in front for an IPA but the maple, citrus, and floral flavors of the hops make their presence known before it all ends. The mouthfeel is medium with just the right amount of carbonation. This a an excellent beer. 60 minute and 90 minute are two of my favorite beers ad when you combine them with a bit of maple syrup it makes something magical!

Now the commercial tugjob on this beer is hilarious. CO2 and Dry hopping with Cascades makes this a complex IPA? LOL

Anyways, looks like your even yellow and light orange pour. Too much carbonation, head. Grassy aroma, a little bit of syrup/maple, mild dry hopping.

Super grassy flavors, maple didn't come through. Decent amount of cheap Cascades. A little sweet, nothing bad or off with the beer, its just expensive considering what you get.

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!

Pours orange in color with bits of sediment floating in the glass (consuming not super fresh however). 2 fingers of white head and tons of lacing.

Aroma presents with crisp grapefruit, rather tame but still present tropical fruit notes, some pine, a malt sweetness, and an almost strawberry-like aroma.

Taste is definitely malt forward. The sweetness balances the hops nicely. The maple syrup is very hard to differentiate from the generic malt sweetness though. Great carbonation on the beer, with only a kiss of non-lingering bitterness at the finish. More of the grapefruit comes forward mid-sip with a nice bright citrusy-ness intertwined.

Overall, this is a nicely balanced beer. Definitely a different pace from the classic West-Coast hop bomb, but still a nice beer to drink. I see this pairing well with many different dishes; in particular, I see a nice rare-cooked roast beef sandwich working nicely. It gets a 88.5/100.

Pale amber in color and translucent with minimal head and significant lacing.

Aromas of pine and citrus and not much else.

Taste is dominated by pine with some citrus, malt, and subtle sweetness.

Mouthful is medium to light, clean bordering on crisp with dry lingering finish.

Overall it looks and feels good but I was letdown by the maple syrup being so far removed from the flavor profile.
