Blend two Dogfish Head favorites, add maple syrup and carbonate the mixture naturally. What do you get? 75 Minute IPA.

The carbon dioxide trapped during bottle conditioning gives 75 Minute IPA a soft and velvety mouthfeel. Dry-hopped with whole-leaf Cascades, this complex IPA has been known to inspire pilgrimages to our brewpub.

Old bottle, about 8 months on the shelf. So I'd like a fresher one, but this was meh.

Delicious. Sweet on the nose but very balanced in taste. Everything blends together quite well with this one. Highly recommended. Very pleasant experience overall.

I rather enjoyed the velvety mouthfeel of this one. Other beers should model after this ones feel. Taste is lacking a bit for me tho- not really detecting much citrus which is what I prefer. Bit of a quandary this one.

A: It pours brilliant amber with a 2 inch off white fluffy and Iraqi head that drops to half an inch to an inch and persists in the glass.
S: Flowery grapefruit over mild maple aromas and a hint of biscuit.
T: It starts very creamy with the malt flavors leading the attack. After the malt breaches the palate Maple with a touch of spice and malt flavors burst forth covering the palate to be balanced by a deft touch of grapefruit rind bitterness on the finish into the aftertaste.
M: The beer has a very full creamy mouth feel.
O: The beer is very well-balanced with an interesting interaction between the maple and the bitter.

This was a disappointment. After a great-looking pour, I just didn't get the aromas I was seeking nor any of the flavor. There was no trace of maple syrup in this, and no malty goodness like you get from 90 Minute either. The finish was somewhat tart, too, which was unexpected. Unsure if this was an outlier given previous reviews, but it was not enjoyable and, I hate to say, went unfinished.

Had the version bottle conditioned with maple syrup. Strong, very hoppy aroma definitely has a hint of maple as well as a citrus fruity touch. Pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick pale wheat head. Hoppy, lively flavor is more fruity than bitter and has a subtle maple syrup note but is not too sweet. Smooth texture has good body and fizz. Love the label on this version! Another winner from Dogfish Head.

Pours an amber color with a thick foamy head. Head retention and lacing are excellent. Has a malty, syrupy aroma. Smells like caramel apples. Smells boozy. Good malt to hop transition but more on the malty side for my tastes. Can definitely taste the maple syrup bitterness at the end. Good beer. I just like a more hoppy, citrus IPAs.

This is a good beer. I think IPA is a strong term for this... It's very sweet. There were many occasions that it was almost overbearingly sweet.

However, again, very good. If you like the 90 minute, you'll probably like this. Not nearly as bitter. Rolled off from the sharp bitterness from the 90, and far more complex than the 60.

Agree with the oily texture. Velvety, as the description says.

If you like barleywine and/or super-sweet saisons, this is a good one to try. Similar heaviness as a big belgian.

750ml bottle served in a shaker pint. Pours an orange-gold hue with a dense, three inch, off-white head. Head eventually settles into a lumpy, half inch froth, leaving thick textured clusters and clumps of lacing as the beer recedes. Nose is malty sweet with some notes of citrus zest and a hint of something floral/herbal in the back. Taste follows nose - malty sweetness attributable to the maple syrup coalesces nicely with the hops profile. Citrus notes are bright and juicy on a toasted malt backbone. It almost comes off as an American Barleywine with a slightly lighter body. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a balanced, even carbonation. Texture is slightly oily. Overall, a very interesting beer - nice complexity and I'd be curious to see what a little time in the cellar does.

Poured 750 ml bottle into willy glasses and shared. A slightly hazy straw yellow with a smallish white head that dissipates and leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is of yeast, bread, crackers, some citrus and herbs/flowers. Taste is somewhat malty - crackers and biscuit, combined with a little bit of citrus and very little bitterness. Mouth feel is dry, refreshing, nicely carbed, with just enough body to give it substance. Overall, a pleasing beer that really does convey the feel of being a blend of 90 minute and 60 minute. On the pricey side, but a very nice IPA.

Pours a light yellowish-gold, semi-clear with a big cake-like head and tremendous lacing. Aroma is very hoppy, with pine, citrus rind a touch of sweetness. Taste is definitely hoppy with lots of grapefruit and grapefruit rind. The maple is very subtle but adds just the right amount of sweetness to balance the hops quite well. This beer does an amazing job balancing itself, has a perfect amount of carbonation and the bitterness is just right. All around, Dogfish hit this one out of the park, wow !!!

An excellent IPA with a piney nose and just a hint of maple on the tongue and a lovely, velvety mouth feel.

I prefer the homemade version (just mix a 60 and a 90, no syrup) to the bottled version, but overall 75 Minute is my favorite of the DFH IPAs.

I didn't taste any notes of maple in this. Truth be told, I didn't find it to be anything special, just drinks like a 60 minute.

This bottle is almost a year old. Less than ideal, I know, but still tastes pretty good so I think it's safe to review. Actually is a little tart and over carbonated, like a Belgian pale ale. Plenty of maple presence both on the nose and in the unique residual sweetness.

Sweetness pairs nicely with the big piney, vinous, citrusy hop presence.

Nice beer with a solid malt backbone and an interesting tart/champagne element resulting from the bottle conditioning.

Had this poured into a nonic pint glass. The color is interesting, more hazy than I would have expected. Sort of a dark golden-yellow. Lots of head and lacing. The taste was interesting, it's awfully citrusy, but you definitely get the maple finish. This sounds kind of gross, but actually works pretty well. The mouthfeel is fairly soft. Really liked it.

The hops are definitely present but play second fiddle to the caramel malt IMO. The hop and malt combo combine for a sweet orange marmalade flavor. The resinous hop profile really helps in the MF department. This is a brew I have always looked forward to trying. It's interesting and one I'll come back to here and there. I would definitely like to try this one fresh at the source.

This may be my all time favorite! We used to go to the Brew Pup on Thursday nights JUST to have this on cask, since that was the only way you could have it. DFH started bottling it just a few years ago.

Rich foamy head and a pale orange color. Pleasantly hoppy nose. Taste is a biting, wonderfully bitter flavor nicely mellowed with a sweet, maple-enhanced maltiness and a very pleasant finish that seems almost like stone fruit in flavor. Expertly balanced taste profile. Mouth feel is sharp, almost biting. Overall another exceptional IPA remarkable for being incredibly well balanced and richly flavored.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance – Initially poured a clear golden orange color, which became an opaque dark amber towards the bottom of the 750ml bottle. Has a huge, very thick head, and lots of lacing that sticks around a long time.

Smell – Malt, floral hops, lemon, and honey. There’s also something else going on - it’s probably the maple syrup though I wouldn’t have come up with that if it wasn’t on the bottle.

Taste – Malt, slightly bitter floral hops, and lemon. There’s also a sweetness, though I can’t tell if it’s honey or maple syrup. Probably a little of each.

Mouthfeel – Lightly carbonated, smooth, slightly oily, with a touch of bitterness.

Drinkability – This is a decent IPA, though I definitely prefer their 90 Minute.
