Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ManekiNeko on 02-06-2004

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.

75 Minute IPA pours a hazy golden color with a small lacing head. Very weak aroma, with hints of sweetness. Taste is a little earthy, with a good hop flavor, with a maple sweet aftertaste. Nice body and feel. Overall, more earthy then the other minute IPA's, but really like the sweet aftertaste.

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.

Smell is piney hops, mixed citrus and a hint of syrup. Taste follows with a lingering resinous hop finish. A perfect amount of maple syrup in there to sweeten and smooth it all out.

Bomber poured into two tulips. Bottled on 10/7/15

a: Golden amber body with a 1 1/2 inch thin bubbly head. Lots of sediment right away and in both glasses.

s: Bready with citrus and a bit of pine.

t:The maple syrup mingles with the crackery, bready malts and carries very well the citrus, pineapple and piney hops. Creamy bitter finish. Excellent balance.

mf: Medium body with good carbonation. Excellent mouth feel. Creamy. Delightful.

o: I have had this on tap at Rehoboth several times and this was my first in the bottle. I like it much better bottle conditioned. I was very surprised at the balance. Normally when I see "with maple syrup" I think of a strong maple syrup finish. The maple flavor was integrated quite well into the beer.

pours mellow orange with a thick white head.

smells very sweet with some caramel malt and bittering hops at the end.

taste is very sweet but also full of bitter hops. i can totally taste the mix of 60 and 90 minute IPA. the body and taste is very 90 minute while the drinkability and lightness is dominated by the 60 minute. very good IPA! sweet for an IPA yet a balanced beer. goes down smooth and easy, finishes dry and sweet. slight thickness at the end but in a good way.

overall a very good IPA. Dogfish Head strikes again on the hop front. better than 60 minute in terms of complexity but not as complex as 90 minute YET the drinkability is far ahead of 90 minute. honestly, i think it's the best of both worlds. best IPA by Dogfish Head

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass.

L: Pours a semi-opaque golden amber color. Thin off-white head that falls quickly. Nice lacing.

S: Evergreens and piney hops. Mild citrus notes..

T/F: This is a delicious IPA, and the maple syrup is there... but it's not sweet. It complements the malts up front before giving way to a nice hop bite. Resinous and a bit chewy. Great carbonation.

O: Another great IPA from Dogfish Head and that's pretty much what they do best. Easier to session than the 90 minute due to the lower ABV and packed with flavor. The maple syrup is not a dominant flavor here... and complements the hops way better than expected.

Truly a treat found this in a bomber at my local craft beer store.. It's a perfect Dogfish IPA with the perfect amount of maple flavor. Id say it's a perfectly balanced ipa with a honey finish. I know I know it's maple syrup. But honey ipa is my description.if you see it get it because it's the tits for sure

Large bottle,
Sweet malty aroma underneath more dominant grassy-herbal hops.
The flavor is similar, but with more sweetness than the aroma suggests.
Smooth, medium+ body with medium-low carbonation.

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.

Poured cold into a tulip glass.
Look = 4.5 Pours a translucent bright golden orange color with 4 fingers of white frothy head. Great retention. Super dense and sticky lace.
Smell = 3.5 Balanced. Sweet malty toffee and caramel balanced with generic hop aroma (piney, citrus). Hint of alcohol and maybe a little maple syrup.
Taste: 4.0 Follows the aroma. Balanced. Sweet malty upfront with some piney citrus hops and nice bitter finish.
Feel = 4.0 Light to medium bodied with high carbonation. A crisp tingly feeling but also smooth.
Drinkability = 4.0 The balance adds to the drinkability.
Overall = 3.95 Great looking beer with very balanced and drinkable aroma and taste. Solid across the board.

Pours a cloudy dark golden/light copper, big foam head and great soapy lace that retains throughout.
The citric hops hit you in the nose right away and persist throughout. Also, the aroma is sugary sweet and biscuity at times.
Strong citric hop taste but with a strong malt backbone. Very sweet, almost cloying at times.This is balanced by a semi dry finish and slightly bitter aftertaste. Medium to light bodied. Surprisingly low carbonation. I was told by the bartender here at DFH pub in Rehoboth(it was on cask) that it's naturally carbonated. The low carbonation feels weird and the body thin at times, but overall I liked it.

On-tap at Dogfish Head Alehouse in Falls Church, VA. On to the beer:

This one is light orange colored and received good marks for it's good head retention on top. The beer has a fruity outlook; I catch aromas of tangerine, orange, and grapefruit, dusted in toasted sugar. Not citrusy as it is done on the west coast, like a sweet and syrupy citrus aroma. For an IPA, this is rather sweet. Not to be mistaken, there is plenty of hoppy stuff here too. Candied grapefruit comes to mind, a note of carmelized sugar, and a punch of vague citrus fruits. The beer has a medium full body with much of the alcohol kept at bay.

60+90= 150/2=75, right? Not quite. 75 Minute IPA takes a slightly different route from the two.

Poured from bottle to snifter style glass. Appearance is a hazy medium-dark gold. Quite literally what you'd expect if you mixed some 60 minute and 90 minute together. Fitting, huh? Smell is heavily citrus with some maple syrup that's detectable. This follows you onto the palate where it's met by a light sweetness from the maple syrup to make a very enjoyable beer. Creamy mouthfeel. Overall, it's one I can't wait to see on the shelves again. Next time, I plan to buy more than one bottle!

Bright rusty gold with crusty bone white froth. 4.25
Salted grapefruit, Seville orange, and a touch of oily perfume on the nose. 4
Thin base of country biscuit, then Lemonhedz, white pine, slight pineapple, and tart passionfruit hops. 4
Flash of yellow Starburst on the comeback and salty linger.
Creamy, almost medium, oily. 4

More like California than either 60 Min or 90 min. Not getting the maple or the dry hopping. Super salty, citrusy, light and straight ahead. Cutting, but not much else. 3.75

750 ml bottle:

Pours hazed yellow with a creamy lasting head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of citrus, some pine. Maybe a hint of maple (power of suggestion?)

The taste is of citrus and pine. A hint of maple syrup gives a bit more to the flavor and sweetness, though the hop bitterness stays ahead. Finishes with a grapefruit bitterness. Maple shows through in the aftertaste.

It has a creamy texture.

An interesting, enjoyable, unique IPA.

On cask from a firkin at the Somerville Craft Beer Fest in Somerville, NJ.

Amber colored with some large carbonation bubbles. Citrus and pine in the aroma. A bit of citrus fruit in the flavor with a mild sweetness. Bitter finish with a firm malt presence to round things out.

A nice combo of a beer I like a lot (60 min) and one that I could do without (90 min).

Velvety mouth feel and not nearly as sweet as you would think for a beer with maple syrup in it. Sweetness still outweighs any hops, which is not necessarily a bad thing. A nearly perfect brew.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance - a golden apricot pour, lots of bubbly tendrils shooting up from below. Light cream-colored head, pocky and sturdy.

Aroma - a whiff of citrus and pine, some vague nuttiness that is probably the maple syrup. Light but not the most aromatic.

Taste - the taste is similar, though the malt base is more stated and lays out a nice canvas for the other flavors to work from. The hops have a good citrus and bitter balance, and the aftertaste is showing some dryness and perhaps nutty tones, but I don't think I would know there's maple in here if it wasn't stated on the label. This has a flavor that suggests a Belgian yeast strain, could just be the age of the bottle and waning of certain elements.

Mouthfeel - fluffy and well-carbonated, solid weight.

Overall - good beer, I'd have it again, especially if I saw it on tap.

Light gold color with a massive head even after a gentle pour and globs of lacing. Smells of caramel and citrus. Great flavors and balance with a slight sweetness. Creamy, smooth, and highly carbonated allowing a pleasant mouthfeel. Great IPA that is easy to drink and highly recommended!
