Poured into a Dogfish Head signature glass on 4/9/12
Bottled in 2012D
Honey amber color with a tobacco burst sheen. The beer boasts a puffy, three finger head that is very slow to dwindle. Dwindle doesn't describe it, actually. One finger retention holds quite a while. Intermittent clumps of thick lace remain up top and dense swaths hold further down.
Un-IPA-like is the only way to describe the aroma. Toasted bread, caramel, de-scented cocoa powder (what the hell?), tree bark and dirty, earth hops. This smells just on the aggravating side of sweet.
Flavor-wise, 75 Minute is just like the nose, if perhaps more earthy and, subsequently, dirty. Toasted sugars, bread and dulled hops. I'm not picking out any of the maple syrup referenced on the bottle. This is just flat-out disappointing for an IPA.
The feel is fluffy and somewhere above the medium threshold. Carbonation is moderate and is appropriate. The finish is a little damp and dirty.
Overall impression - It's never a good thing when the product description of an IPA refers to "age-ability."

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.

3.9/5 rDev -5.6%
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.
