750ml Bottle

A - Hazy copper in color with a frothy eggshell head. Okay lacing.

S - Hops abound, citrus and pine aroma. A little malt in the background.

T - Malty and slightly sweet. Hoppy and orange peel. Not a huge bitter finish.

M - Medium carb/body. Finishes dry.

O - Better than the 90, IMO. Less malty but I wish this beer was brighter in some aspects.

75 Minute IPA pours a hazy dark honey yellow with a massive thick white head on top. The foam dissolves very slowly to a thick sheet on the beer. It leave splotches of lace on the glass as it goes down.

The aroma has notes of pale malt, lemongrass, toffee and caramel.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is soft on the palate with an effervescent fizz. The flavor is malty with some flowery notes. It begins with caramel and bread, followed by orange citrus and lemon grass. It finishes dry and mildly bitter with a hint of maple candy at the end. Once gone the toffee and lemongrass linger on the palate.

There's a little alcohol burn at the end of each sip and the beer didn't have as much maple as I thought it would. Still, it's tasty, well balanced and easy to drink.

A: This poured a hazy gold with lots of light tan head.
S: It smelled like grainy wheat bread with some earthy caramel and maple and pine.
T: It tasted the same as the smell, with a surprising amount of bready character, and only subtle hops or maple. It had a mostly clean and sweet aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick with moderate carbonation. Fairly full body.
D: This was a decent beer, but really not that great. The smell and taste were ok, and the body was better. It had a smooth finish, so it was easy to drink. Not a bad brew, but really not worth seeking out.

A billowing white head erupts from the hazy copper body packed with loose bubbles of carbonation that slowly dissolve to leave a scattered lacing.

Pine and citrus hop aromas float from the glass as well as grass notes before the toffee, malt, and maple appear as the beer warms.

What an awesome flavor with pine and citrus hops up front with just the right touch of maple and malt sweetness as it warms and perhaps a hint of spice.

Generous carbonation and a full body highlight the mouthfeel ending with a spicy hop finish.

Great IPA! Absolutely delicious and unlike any of its counterparts. DFH got this right.

A - this long awaited beer pours a hazy ginger ale color with a half finger of head, moderate amounts of carbonation streams

S - the hops do not disappoint, that typical and renown DFH hops, the huge grapefruit and pine aromas that make DFH great, some crystallized sugar to balance the hops

T - it really tastes like someone dissolved a piece of maple sugar candy in DFh 90-Min, what a great idea. The flavors play off each other supremely, the hop profile against the sinful maple tree syrup-ness.

M&D - rich and complex, a great twist to the DFH IPA's we all love.

Thanks to Brandon for sharing this.

Pours a beige head. Color is a golden orange.

Aroma: Very sweet. The maple syrup shows well. Kind of bready with caramel flavors. Some floral and grassy hops.

Taste: Again, pretty malty, but an orange citrus shows. Floral and pine. Maple syrup, caramel, and bready malts. Unique.

Mouthfeel: Bitter, but syrupy. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends with a hop-resin stickiness.

Overall, a very unique ipa. I like the maple syrup, but it was a bit too malty for me. Still glad I got to try this one.

Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color. The head slowly develops, but rises to about 1" tall in my tulip pint. It soon falls to a film with a single island of rocky head. As it receded it leaves some nice lacing in my glass. Smell is of green, citric hops. I also detect a slight roasted note in the nose along with some sweetness. The aroma is actually rather complex, alone more complex than some beers. The taste starts sweet and smooth, I get citric hops that aren't overly aggressive (very east coast) a touch of roasted malts, a bit of maple. I can just barely taste tha alcohol towards the end. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth, not what I expected, but good.

Hazy orange/amber with a mountain of egg white foam as a head. It takes a while for it to recede, leaving spotty gossamer all over the place, including my counter since I overpoured. After a few pours I managed a nice, cohesive, dense head that also took a while to go bye bye.

A bunch of hops seemingly vie for dominance as I get all sorts of hop elements in this. Pine, citrus, spice, grass and a touch of onion. That last usually puts me off the beer immediately, but not so here...can't explain why. The maple syrup marries with the malts to make some caramel.

As with a lot of IPAs, the taste is not what I expected. But what is rare is that I like the taste better than the smell. Very complex and exceptionally well-balanced. The hop bouquet is mostly intact in the flavor with the malts exerting as much dominance. The yeast did a nice job on the maple syrup, giving a nice booze note of spiced dark rum. That spice, probably from the phenols, comes across as cloves. So much going on, but it all works together nicely.

All that flavor is packed into a pretty smooth beer that starts off boozy, moves to sweet and then dries out in the end. This is easily one of the most flavorful IPAs that does not rely on the massive hops load, leaving behind the malts, using them only to deliver the alcohol.

Bottle poured into a snifter; had this back in February, just found the notes

The body pours a hazy orange in color with a foamy, tight ecru colored cap. Spider web lacing and good retention. Thick chunks of lace showing the sip marks.

The aroma is rather malty. Earthy toffee, caramel, and bready, with some citrus over top. The maple syrup is hardly noticeable. I had higher expectations for the nose.

The flavor profile follows the nose. Bready malt with toffee and caramel and some citrus tones (orange rind) over top. Maple syrup comes through faintly in the finish, adding a little sweetness to an earthy, dry finish.

Medium body, chewy malt profile. The finish is dry and earthy with some sweetness from the caramel/toffee/maple syrup.

Overall, I was underwhelmed. I would much rather have a 60 or a 90 than this. The maple syrup addition was a non-factor to me.

750mL bottle poured into a tulip. Thanks to Chris for sharing!

(A)- Pours a golden orange color. Produced a nice cap of white froth. Great retention and lace.

(S)- A subtle sweetness up front with citrus and pine. Slightly spicy.

(T)- The maple syrup comes out nice in this as a subtle nuance with the citrus and caramel malt and pine.

(M)- A nice carbonation level and a nice balance too. I like that the maple syrup is well-integrated into the overall beer profile.

(D)- Overall, a nice twist on a classic DFH. Good malt sweetness while still seeing the citrus and pine still.

a clear golden/amber pour with 2 fingers of white fluffy white head, ridiculous amount of lacing.
smells of pine, flowers, orange and lemon, honey, grass
initial bitter sweet with a hint of soap, honey, pine, dirt, grapefruit
medium body with fizzy carbonation - slightly creamy but goes down easily and smooth

overall, this is a great ipa and one of dfh's best beers to date.
