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.

Poured from a 750 mL. capped bottle (Bottled 2012) into a snifter glass.

A moderate pour yields a 2 1/2-finger head that puffs up quickly and fades slowly. Only after a good number of minutes does the head finally settle to a thick dusting and thick foam ring. The body is a translucent copper amber with a great amount of carbonation bubbles. Thick lacing clings to the glass in fluffy rings throughout carbonation.

Light grainy malts create a nice backbone for the grassy and floral hops aromas. Combined, the malt and hops give the nose a very earthy character. Just a hint of alcohol is also detectable but is well hidden by the other aromas.

The floral and grassy hops are the first flavors to strike the taste buds. Swishing the beer about reveals the grainy, bready malts and just a touch of sweet maple. Swallowing the beer allows a bitterness to come out of the hops flavors. A slight alcohol warmth finds a home in the back of the throat between sips.

The medium body allows the flavors to really present themselves but never becomes sticky or overly coating. The carbonation seems just right as the beer is held in the mouth. However, as the beer is swallowed, the carbonation causes an excessive foaming that detracts from the experience.

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.
