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.

I poured this from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass. It has a nice copper color body with a large white creamy head that hangs around for a while.
The smell has a light citrus crispness to it .
The taste has a grapefruit, citrus flavor to it from the hops. it also has slight sweetness to it.
The mouth feel is really nice and smooth, very little after taste. Overall a great beer.
Imo, it is better than the 60 minute, but isn't better than the 90 min. but i would defently get it again and i would recomend it.

A – A beautiful polished brass body; copious amounts of very light off-white head that leaves streaks of lacing down the glass as it subsides with amazing retention as well. A gorgeous beer.

S – It really does smell a lot like the 60 and the 90 combined with a toasted bready/biscuit aroma, a goodly amount of citrus and pineapple hops, a caramel and spiciness to it as well. Smells very good.

T – Sweet citrus hops is in the forefront contributing wonderful and varying tastes of grapefruit and pineapple, much like in the nose, but this flavor intermingles in a much more complex manner in the taste than in the smell. There is a grand interplay of caramel maltiness, caramel and really an almost woody oaky element which could potentially be described as toast and biscuits as well but it is just a most pleasant melody of flavors in any case. Still not as good as the 90 minutes, IMO, but very good nonetheless. Different in it’s own special way.

M – The mouthfeel, like a lot of things done by DFH is just perfect. Carbonation is spot on and lasts throughout, smooth and silky, wonderfully crafted.

O – Overall this is near where I hold the 90 minute, which is in a very high tier, but falls just slightly short. Very well done and an awesome beer though, and one I shall certainly enjoy again. Definitely worth picking this up and I highly recommend it.

Grab one, it's great. I prefer it to the sixty & the ninety, though I do greatly respect the 60 minute in particular. Less maple then I expected, particularly considering the brewer. Evidence of bottle fermentation is also minimal. Smell & flavor were damn, damn good. Appearance less than stellar, and mouthfeel provides a squeeze I don't need. Indeed, had I drank this blind, I mighttt have mentioned maple in the scent, but probably wouldn't have pinned it in the flavor. In sum, it seems the maple ends up mellowing an impressively blended IPA into a beguiling and deliciously mellow brew.

Drank last night at a beer share - reviewing from notes.

A - Pours with a subtle beauty, light orange but as pure a color as can be

S - smells like a traditional ale, but with a hint of sweetness

T - so subtle. Delicious, hides the 7.5% very well, but maple aftertaste is the kicker here. Smooth, really well rounded, really well done. Tastes like desert.

M - Tons of head, really good lacing, high carbonation. Bubbles dance for an extended period of time.

O - Share a bomber, quickly.

Excited to have this available in California - been wanting to try it for a while. Poured from a 750mL bottle into my Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

Even with a careful pour, more than half the glass is filled with an ever-rising white layer of foam. Thick heavy merengue-like lacing adorns the sides once the turbulence dies down sufficiently to reveal the bright glowing amber of the supporting liquid. Perpetual retention.

Potent aromatics cut through the last vestiges of my post-cold congestion to deliver a huge punch of hops. Fresh cut pine trees (one imagines an entire old growth forest sacrificed for this nose), tangerine, and passion fruit come through with a touch of caramel as well. Sweet and gently herbaceous.

Floral palate entry with a wave of maple candy and grapefruit pith taking hold quickly. Slightly earthy finish with hints of roses, white pepper, and french toast. The lasting, unapologetic citrus-kissed bitterness is an odd match for the sweetness of maple syrup, but the balance somehow works.

Creamy, soft, medium-bodied mouth-feel - well carbonated yet drying.

Quite unique with the maple syrup being so forward - like Sunday brunch in a bottle.

Reviewing 60, 75, and 90 minute side-by-side.

Aggressive pour yields a brilliant golden body, a touch darker than the 60 minute, slightly more bronze, with a dense one and a half inch pillowy cream head that lingers, and will eventually leave sheets of lacing that are more sticky than the 60 minute.

Hops are a bit more dank in the aroma, and the malt character seems a tad sweeter. Grapefruit and a variety of tropical fruits, like mango and pineapple, are present. There's a fresh-cut grass character, and a touch of pine and resin. Floral hops emerge as it warms.

Flavor is significantly more bitter than the 60 minute. There's also a bigger, sweeter, toasted bready, caramel malt character. Dank hops are more dominant, muddling the citrus profile. Earthy hops are also present, lending a bit of mineral quality at the finish. Citrus character and floral hops are more dominant than the 60.

Body is moderate, somewhat creamy, and the carbonation is almost spritzy. Alcohol warmth is a bit more pronounced.

Overall, more traditional of what I would consider to be an IPA than the 60 minute. Good hop flavor character, nice, strong malt body, slightly sweet, and a good, bitter finish. Wouldn't have known maple syrup was added, by flavor or aroma profiles.

Into a pint glass:

A: light golden orange colored body leaving a two finger white foamy head that is probably one of the most beautiful looking heads of any beer I've ever seen in my entire life. Beautiful foamy lacing clings yet gently slides down the glass

S: maple syrup up front, but not overbearing, because I can still smell the hops, some light grapefruit and some light malts

T: spectacular as the maple syrup, hops, grapefruit and malts combine in a wonderful combination

M: awesomely smooth and sticky, but a nice stickiness. It is medium bodied. The drinkability is moderate, I'll have no problem finishing off the bomber, but that'll probably be it for the night

O: so glad I finally found this as I've been searching for this for an exceptionally long time. Well worth the wait and I may have to go pick up some more bombers of this. If this doesn't make one a fan of American IPA's, nothing will. As of today, this is my all time favorite Dogfish Head beer.
