American IPA |  7.50% ABV

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.

4.23/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

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.

4.1/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A. Beautiful dark orange/brown/yellow color that you cannot see through. HUGE head when poured into a tulip glass.

S. Sweet - alcohol. Honey, alcohol, maple syrup notes but not dominate (maybe in my head, as I am half in the bag right now).

T. Pin in the front. Malt in the middle, maple syrup on the finish, so I am drinking this slowly. Need to get to the delayed finish in every sip.

m. Wow- super smooth, but the alcohol dries out the mouth before the maple comes in.

o. Outstanding beer - the only issue I have with it is the alcohol hit for a 7.5 APV beer. DFH 60 still rains supreme for me - but this is not far behind.

4.01/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the 22oz bomber into a snifter.
Pours a medium amber with lots of foamy head, at least 2 fingers worth. Great lacing.
Smells complex. Sweetness of maple and malt, some good hop aromas.
Taste is also complex. Hops and maple are balanced with malt. I get different tastes on different parts of my tongue.
Mouthfeel is soft as DFH promotes.
Overall, a nice beer. Complex, maybe the different flavors are a touch muddled, but I really enjoyed it.
