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.

Bomber into crispin glass...major head with delicate pour which doesn't bother me in good ipa cause I like to warm it for full flavor. Hazy orangish hop filled. Hop zesty goodness another good job by dogfish get you thinking what this reminds you of. I smell Gordon bierch marzen malt back bone with crazy hops to follow. Tastes of hops and malts and maple syrup that will have your tongue going for all the sugary aftertaste! Med/high Carb that the hops entertain your tongue . Overall my favorite of ipas from dogfish. I would love to try on tap and ran out bought up remaining 4 from local bottle shop at $12 a 22!! If was available would drink like 2 hearted or stone when desiring good ipa!! Really good taste great drinkability and German malt or something foreign catches my tastebuds that really balances it!!

Another major score, courtesy of Paul Pendyck of the GEN Sutter Inn in Lititz! He has truly spoiled the denizens of Lancaster County with his monthly Cask Night. I love to travel, but PA ranks among the best that the US has to offer.

It came with two thick, foamy fingers of eggnog colored head with fantastic retention. Color was a slightly deeper amber than the 60", but still with a fantastic NE-quality clarity. Nose was floral, piney, more in line with what I like in an IPA. Mouthfeel was slightly fuller than the 60" and more malty at the same time. Actually, it felt like there was a power struggle going on atop my palate betwixt the malt and the hops with neither gaining the upper hand. It was on the finish that the hops became truly assertive. I got a spearmint flavor that lingered. It was not Life Savers or chewing gum prevalent, but it was definitely spearmint. It triggered a memory but I could not quite dredge it up - I used to know which hops strain imparts that flavor, but it simply eluded me. An excellent beer, highly recommended, especially on cask!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Appearance: orange in color with a 2" fluffy head that slowly falls to a spotty surface covering. Moderate lace paints the glass.

Smell: a pleasant aroma of mild citrus and a floral hop bitterness makes the nose happy.

Taste: caramel, mild orange, pear, a bit of grapefruit, and a nice balancing bitterenss create a full flavored and refreshing beer.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp throughout with some mild dryness late.

Overall: this is a beer you can have several pints of despite the higher alcohol levels. Nice flavors and since this was very fresh, it created a very pleasurable drinking experience.

This was a very good overall beer. I am a fan of the 60 Minute and like 90 minute so it falls in the middle. Not a lot of the maple syrup comes through, but I believe it helps create the color of the beer which is a nice amber. When I poured this into the glass there was a good amount of white head, but this did not fade fast. There were plenty of hops and malt to go along. The pine and citrus came through nicely. I have to say the only thing I do not like is that our local store only got a case of these in.

06/19/13 From a cask. A very big beer. First nose is orange/citrusy. Wonderful body. Just right.

Lingering aftertaste that makes you want to return to the well.

Finding this here, in a cask, is like finding Megan Fox sitting at the next table in a restaurant.

Drink it in 'cause you know I won't happen again.

Grab one, it's great. I prefer it to the sixty & the ninety, though I do greatly respect the 60 minute in particular. Less maple then I expected, particularly considering the brewer. Evidence of bottle fermentation is also minimal. Smell & flavor were damn, damn good. Appearance less than stellar, and mouthfeel provides a squeeze I don't need. Indeed, had I drank this blind, I mighttt have mentioned maple in the scent, but probably wouldn't have pinned it in the flavor. In sum, it seems the maple ends up mellowing an impressively blended IPA into a beguiling and deliciously mellow brew.

Had on cask at the DFH brewpub in Rehoboth.

A: Pours a hazy amber/copper color with the whitest foam head I have ever seen. Extremely tight on top with great retention and really nice lacing. Possibly the best poured beer I have ever had.

S: Nice hoppy aroma, citrus fruits - some orange and grapefruit. Some caramel malt and maple understones as well.

T: Love this beer. Has a great combination of bitter hops and sweetness. There is some brown sugar and caramel and citrus fruits, similar to the aroma with orange, orange peel, and grapefruit.

M: Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Has a perfectly sticky finish. Very creamy coming from the cask.

O: Easily one of my favorite beers, especially on cask, making it nice and creamy. It is not as sweet as 90 and hoppier than 60. Extremely easy drinking, and my go to beer when I am at DFH.

Golden yellow with an amber hue and a bit hazy. Poured with a huge, billowy white foam that leaves sticky lacings on the glass and maintains to the finish. Grainy, toasty , sweet malty aroma with citrus and pine notes. Delicate, smooth lager-like feel with soft carbonation. Citrus hop flavors ride a steady wave of toasted and sweet malty flavors from beginning to the finish. Citrus hops transition to pine hops at fhe finish. Malty sweetness seems to dial-up at the end too. More balanced than 60 minute and not as sweet as 90 minute. Wish this was available in the 12 oz format.

Poured in a pint glass. The beer has a beautiful honey-tea color. The head was at least 4 fingers. At first, I thought it was the way I initially poured the beer, but the second pour also resulted in a similar sized head.

The smell is a wonderful citrusy-lemon- not too overpowering. I was surprised, but the mouth feel was very smooth, with little carbonation. I was expecting a more carbonated mouth feel for an IPA.

The finish hardly exhibited any bitterness, with a wonderful lemony hops taste.

It's interesting to note that on the second pour, the beer seemed slightly more bitter, and a bit more hoppy. I am not sure why- possibly due to the meal I was eating( marinated chicken in chipotle sauce) or a colder temp for the bottle.

This beer is a winner! It may become a new Dogfish favorite of mine.

The second night I drank this beer in a chalice. It was much
smoother, no trace of bitterness, with lemon overtones.
The beer was cooler,perhaps a better temp.
I also noticed quite a bit of lacing. I sealed the
the bottle with a metrokane wine sealer. The overall
finish was deeper, malty,with a slight taste of molasses.

A - Ok, this is what an IPA should look like! Huge 2 fingers of head, even after a gentle pore, and a white sticky coating is left over the top of the beer all the way down. The sides of the glass are destroyed in lace

S - Pine, and some nice floral hop notes, with a hint of sweetness, probably from the maple syrup

T - Malty at first, and then a HUGE sweet hoppy goodness gets thrown all over your taste buds. Nice bitter aftertaste too. Wow, this is great

M - Medium bodied, but high carbonation that sizzles in your mouth. Nice

O - A great brew. I think its up there with the Burton Baton as far as Dogfish Head's best. Definitely better than the 60 minute, and slightly ahead of the 90. Well done Dogfish Head!!

Pours a light yellowish-gold, semi-clear with a big cake-like head and tremendous lacing. Aroma is very hoppy, with pine, citrus rind a touch of sweetness. Taste is definitely hoppy with lots of grapefruit and grapefruit rind. The maple is very subtle but adds just the right amount of sweetness to balance the hops quite well. This beer does an amazing job balancing itself, has a perfect amount of carbonation and the bitterness is just right. All around, Dogfish hit this one out of the park, wow !!!

Pours a hazy orange-ish color with a light tan head. In the aroma, dryer orange citrus rind like hops. In the taste, orange citrus hops, a dryer end, and a nice maltiness. A smooth and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry orange citrus rind in the aftertaste. A bit malt heavy, but really nice nonetheless.

This is one well crafted beer. Pours a rich straw orange with some fantastic lacing.

Smells of piney sweet hops with some caramel malts in the background.

Taste hits first with the piney hops and transitions to the more sweeter maple malt character. It's pretty fantastic.

Mouthfeel is fairly viscous yet carbonated.

Overall this is a fantastic beer from DFH. One I've had multiple times now and doesn't disappoint.

A: It pours brilliant amber with a 2 inch off white fluffy and Iraqi head that drops to half an inch to an inch and persists in the glass.
S: Flowery grapefruit over mild maple aromas and a hint of biscuit.
T: It starts very creamy with the malt flavors leading the attack. After the malt breaches the palate Maple with a touch of spice and malt flavors burst forth covering the palate to be balanced by a deft touch of grapefruit rind bitterness on the finish into the aftertaste.
M: The beer has a very full creamy mouth feel.
O: The beer is very well-balanced with an interesting interaction between the maple and the bitter.

Wow, the hops are insane on this beer. The dry hopping comes through big time from the moment you pop the bottle open. Hazy golden orange hue with an amber center. Massive crystal like bright white head builds in the chalice. Huge grapefruit citrus and pine nose. Can't find the malt bill at all on the nose. Soft notes of wood, flowers and fresh mint become present as the beer breathes. More tropical fruit scents become present as well.

The first thing that cam to mind was "interesting". Big full body with heavier flavors than what are present on the nose. Caramel sweetness forms up front with the maple syrup being detected through out in the form of an underlying sweetness. The tropical fruits of the nose turns to soft apples and melons. A touch of tobacco like smokiness comes into play with subtle notes of vanilla. A soft, earthy, and floral hop bitterness springs up on the finish along with notes of pine to round everything.

One of the most complex beers i've ever had as I find myself picking up different things every time. Slightly confusing but definitely enjoyable. The layers of flavor play off eachother or roll into one another appropriately the majority of the time for a very unique brew.

Now if I only I could pull off this same taste by just putting half 60 minute and half 90 minutes in a glass.

Appearance: It has a nice cloudy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down very slowly and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of citrus and grapefruit along with earthy/piney notes, caramel and maple syrup.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a nice tropical fruit character to it with some piney and earthy notes as well, maple syrup sweetness with some light caramel, bready malts and slight alcohol coming through as it warms. Moderate lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: It has a high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas.

Poured from bomber into dogfish pint glass

A-cloudy orange copper color. can see lots of bubble and some sediment floating around. giant head that even bubbled out of the bottle when i opened it. head isn't really going anywhere.

S-sweet, syrupy, honey, hoppy deliciousness. Cant really put it any better than that. One of the best smelling beers I have had.

T-delicious. This has a great honey type sweetness that hits up front and stays with you throughout, with the hops hitting in the finish.

MF-Very thick, nice smooth and creamy feel to it. Balanced carbonation. You can see how thick this is just from pouring it.

O-Wow this is delicious. This ranks up there with hopslam. One of my favorite beers right here. Much better than the half 60/90 mix.

A: Amber, thick head - dissipates after about 6min - leaves quite a bit of a lacing all the way up the glass
S- can't smell much don't know if that's just my nose right now or if it doesn't have a very strong aroma. Somewhat malty with citrus notes
T - very smooth, great amount of hoppy biterness, tastes a lot like a smooth 90min IPA. The hops and the malts are very balanced, it's smooth with a dry hoppy finish
O - for my preference of bitterness, this is a perfect IPA, nothing harsh that kicks you in the face, has a nice warm taste with a subtle hop aftertaste

Appearance - Pours a golden amber/copper hue with three fingers of frothy, fluffy white head.

Smell - Citrusy hops, caramel malts, grapefruit and tropical fruit, slight hint of sweetness from maple syrup.

Taste - Moderately strong citrus hop bitterness with the sweetness of maple cutting through it, making for a great balance. Accented by grapefruit, caramel and tropical fruit flavours.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slight fluffiness/airiness to the body.

Overall - Dogfish Head delivers again on another stellar and unique IPA. Maple syrup cuts through the bitterness quite nicely to give the overall flavour the balance it needs.

This is one of my favorite IPAs. I tasted this a while back and it was unbelievably good. I will skip the look of the beer and focus on the hop to malt to maple syrup ratio. Sweet, floral, spicy, and rounded out by the maple - it is really something! Citrus hops with floral characteristics meet the toasted malts and are enveloped by maple. Need I say more? The maple syrup is from Sam's father's farm in Mass.

A- Hazy light copper/orange pour with a booming three plus finger soapy egg shell head. Lacing is remarkable.

S- Bright pine, citrus and sweet malts. Not getting the maple in the aroma but this is much more balanced than the 60 and the 90 minute.

T- Holy hops. Nice citrus and wonderful pine flavors. The maple doesn't really pop, more for just sweetening and balancing the beer.
Lingering bitter finish.

M- Medium bodied, good carbonation.

O- This really is the best of both worlds. I really prefer this over 90 and as much as fresh 60 minute. The maple syrup really helps and adds a wonderful depth to this beer.

HAd At the BBC in Plymouth MA,

I was so excited to have been a part of the event. The beer was awesome.

Poured a nice orangeish amber with a nice thick head, rocky ans off white. Big ups to the bartender for the pour.

Smell was all hops with a light sweetness.

Taste was straight dry hopping. Piney upfront and mellowing to more of a citrus finish. The sweetness of the malt was in the middle. I love cask and love the dry hops.

This was the first cask offering I have ever had from Dogfish. I hope it isn't the last. This brew reminded me of the 90 min. with the randal. This was maybe a little smoother.

A: Cloudy orange with a generous off-white head and strong bands of lacing left behind on the glass.

S: Strong, bitter citrus and pine hops, very earthy and intense.

T/M: Really complex and delicious. Those strong citrusy hops hit up front with a strong bitter flavor, soon rounded out by a sweet malty backbone and a syrupy, throat-coating hint of maple on the follow-through. With each sip you can feel the different components of the beer struggling for dominance, but no one flavor ever comes out on top so it remains really well-balanced and complex.

O: A great blend of two great beers that I might even like better than either of its parents. This combines the 60 Minute's smooth balance and the 90 Minute's sweet, intense profile with a nice sugary, syrupy foundation of maple, and the result is fantastic.
