Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

eyes...
big fluffy head even on an easy pour, in the 2 finger range, cloudy dull orange hue with lots of bubbles competing for my attention, the head is a floating mass and grips all over the glass for dear life

nose...
zesty, lemony seltzer, fresh citric hop aroma with zero off notes, deeper cone aroma is also apparent under the lemon umbrella, the malt does fight a little to be heard but man you better listen carefully, ditto on the maple syrup - just a faint note, for an IPA this does smell really nice

taste etc...
initial hops... and some strange sweetness, definite crisp carbonation bite which I dig (keeps it refreshing), the hops have a nice bittering bent but do not over do it - this is probably also in concert with the maple syrup and bottle conditioning, although the bottle conditioning doesn't feel as apparent as it does in a beer like say Long Trails unfiltered IPA or 3 Floyds Dreadnaught (again I suspect the maple syrup is playing a role here), the maple becomes more assertive more into the bottle and seems to balance out more as I go on (and perhaps my palate is adjusting as well), some nice warming is apparent from the elevated (but not astronaut in love crazy) ABV, this drinks beautifully feel wise - carbonation is sharp and this has a nice full body, the hops are almost perfumy in your mouth as well

the bottom of the bottle is the winner, the flavors are all amplified including the maple which almost adds a smoky-ish type element

verdict?
DFH knows IPAs, that is pretty damn apparent. this is a very interesting and super drinking brew. It does not hit it out of the proverbial park for me personally but that said it is damn solid no doubt. Great hop flavor and the bottle conditioning adds just the right touch of complexity.

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.

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.

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.
