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.

This beer was enjoyed at the Dogfish Head Brewery and Eats in Rehoboth Beach, DE. Served from a cask at 55 degrees.

Served in a pint glass

A - Beer arrived at the table with a half-finger head. The beer was a very hazy, nearly opaque golden/amber color. Decent lacing left on the glass.

S - The standard aromas of an IPA are there but a slightly sweeter smell.

T - The beer was a tamed down version of the DFH 90 minute. It has a larger malt presence than the DFH 60 minute but not quite as heavy as a 90 minute. A nice combination of the two beers. It does taste a bit more sweeter than a 90 minute which is probably from the addition of the maple syrup although I don't taste much maple. It retains all the bitter hoppiness that I enjoy so much. The ABV is slightly noticeable.

M - A medium consistency. Possibly due to the cask, there was little to no carbonation.

O - I've always wanted to try the DFH 75 and I was impressed. A great combination of two classic beers with a little tweaking with the addition of some more sweetness. I could see myself drinking this quite often if it was available in 12oz bottles.

Cheers! (1,133 characters)

Great to finally try this beer.Poured into a tulip glass a burnt orange tinged golden with a huge blooming head that ran over the glass even with gentle pour,I was not a huge fan of that.Great fresh citrus aromas along with ahint of nuttiness,not much in the maple category but the aromas are great.The label is right the mouthfeel is pretty smooth as it glides down pretty easily.Piney and citric on the palate with the malt backbone lacking a bit,it's pretty dry with the maple coming thru in the finish and aftertaste.The alcohol is well hidden the hops are generous but the malt backbone needs to be amped up a tad...in my opinion. (635 characters)

75 Minute IPA by Dogfish Head Brewery, American Imperial Pale Ale, 7.5% alcohol content. 750ml bomber with a very unique man somewhat tapping a keg.

A- Pours a dark orange fluid that produces a one inch creamy off white head that leaves thick pillows of lacing on the glass.

S- Rich caramel and brown sugar and sharp grassy hops bite the nose.

T-M- Taste is composed of a 90 min and 60 min mix of malty caramel, earth and mild brown sugar. In the backbone it pushes more of a fresh cut grass and citrus bite followed by a smooth mouthfeel sticking to the tongue with astreingency.

O- Drinkable as hell if you can afford it. (627 characters)

A - Pours a slightly hazy burnt orange with three fingers of dense off-white head. Head has great retention and coats the glass with lacing. A small stream of slow rising carbonation.

S - Aroma actually seems a bit subdued, but consists of citrus, florals, a bit of grassiness and biscuit malt.

T - Nice punch of hop bitterness, combined with a subtle sweetness (residual maple syrup?) is quickly overtaken by a big biscuit malt taste. Finishes with a subtle citrus bitterness.

M - Mouthfeel is on the full side for an IPA, but is quite smooth.

O - I used to really like Dogfish Head IPAs, but have essentially stopped buying them in the last few years due mostly to the high malt presence. Having said that, I enjoyed this quite a bit and found myself drinking it pretty quickly. The dry-hopping is quite nice with this one. This is still too malty to be a go-to IPA for me, but I would have it again. (906 characters)
