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.

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.

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.

Maple syrup undetectable. A very average IPA.

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!

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.
