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 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."

This beer was chilled and served in a snifter.

A- A thick creamy white colored head rides a clear peach colored body. Thick lacing marks this beers passage from my glass.

S- Pine cone and resin lead the aroma. The citrus hop and tropical fruit hop aromas are far more muted than what I recall either beer being.

T- Pine resinous hops lead the flavor and last throughout the flavor. Again as in the aroma the citrus flavors are very muted. Not bad but frankly I want either 60 or 90 Minute IPA.

M- This beer is full bodied and very creamy.

O- Not a bad beer but the combination of 60 and 90 Minute IPA pale in comparison to either beer.

Pours a hazy, dark golden orange color with yellowish-orange hues and a massive 2.5/3 finger, frothy white head that very slowly settles into a lasting cap.  Chunks of soapy lacing left behind.

Sweet yet earthy aroma with some grassy pine and sweet malt notes.  The sweetness of the syrup and malts take away from the hops.  Hint of caramel, toffee, nut and sweet maple.  Too malt forward for my preference.  

Medium bodied with some tight carbonation and subtle signs of infection. Balance of dry and sweet notes.  Dry bitterness with some earthy/soily notes that get overpowered by malt profile and maple.  Hints of toffee, caramel hazelnut and syrup. Too malty and sweet with little to no interesting hop flavor.

Poured into a tulip. This one pours an amber honey color with four fingers of frothy white head. More head than beer in my glass, and this head seems to have staying power.

The first thing that comes to mind in the aroma is sharp cheddar cheese (I realize this may sound insane). Behind that a lingering aroma of mild citrus hops comes through with a slightly sweet edge. Sweet malts are the first thing I notice on the pallet with a kiss of bitter hops to round it out. Maple flavors with a little bit of orange pull this together.

The body is a bit on the heavier side and slightly sticky with soft carbonation.

Overall I'm a little disappointed. I'll think I'll stick with 60 minute as my Dogfish drink of choice.
