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 750ml bottle into a large tulip glass. The smell was of molasses and syrup with strong piney-hop influence. I would describe the color that of clover honey. The taste was moderate pine hops up front with a mild malt backbone and a slight lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel was perhaps the best characteristic of the beer, a light/medium, very pleasant, making it easy to finish the bottle unassisted. Overall though, I found this beer to be between average and good.

750ml bottle poured into a pint glass

Pours with a huge fluffy head. Clear yellow-golden. Head fades and leaves clumps on the side of the glass. Smell is grassy, piney, floral sweet.

Taste is odd. Something a little funky-off about it. Maybe some soapy flavor. Not a total loss, because there's some noticeable sweetness.

Mouthfeel is thin, light, slick. Overall, not too impressed. I'll finish it, but not with delight.

Bottled on date is smeared, but I can make out that it was bottled in July of 2013. 750ml bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy burnt golden; huge chunky eggshell white head that doesn't dissapear and leaves nice lacing and retention. Amazing looking beer. The aromas are full of caramel malts and lots of oranges. There are hints of pine needles as well. The flavors are sharp and crisp, but the malts do cut down on the aggressive bitterness. There are hints of maple as advertised, giving it a subtle sweetness and a resinous taste. There's some grass in the mix giving it an earthiness. I'm also picking up on some lemon zest. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is nice; feels medium-bodied. The carbonation is moderate, but active. It's pretty creamy as well. This is a pretty clean beer. There's definitely an English influence on this one.

I'd say 75 Minute doesn't match up to its counterparts. I'd personally prefer of 60 or 90 over this. The craftsmanship is definitely there, which it gets extra credit for. It's an enjoyable beer, but nothing to write home about, in my opinion. The hop flavors and aromas don't seem to shine. Reguardless of me not being crazy about the aromas and flavors, it's still a pretty fun beer to drink, like most DFH beers. I recall enjoying this much more in the past. I hate to sound so harsh, because I'm a longtime DFH fan.

Pours out with more than average head, which stays for quite a while. Clings to sides of glass. Very hazy caramel color throughout. Reminds me of autumn.

Smell is very malty. Not a lot of hop being detected. Sweet, thick malt is the overpowering sensation.

Taste is sweet and syrupy (as expected, with maple syrup being an ingredient). Lots of malt and a very subdued taste overall.

Mouthfeel is very thick and syrupy. Not a very clean finish overall. Lingers in the mouth long after sip is finished.

1 pt 9.4 fl oz brown glass bottle (bottled on 1/25/13) served in a pint glass, reviewed live:

A - Pours a tall, thick three finger cream colored head. Color is a hazy golden orange. Retention is damn good and it leaves tight lacing as it recedes.

S - Pleasant floral and piney hops dominate the nose but it's far from resinous. A bit perfumy, even. The hops seem muted though. Caramel undertones. I'd expected sweeter given the addition of the maple. Mild strength.

T - Musty pine hops and faint lemon zest. The maple's there, and it upsets the balance. Bitter finish. Stale base malts and mishandled caramel. Subdued earthy yeast. The alcohol is surprisingly noticeable at 7.5%. Mundane.

M - Crisp. A bit thick and oily.

D - It's far from a bad beer, but I'd honestly expected a lot more from this one. Having been disappointed by the other "minute" IPA's, I guess I should have known.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

poured a large bottle into 2 pint glasses.

explosive off white head over a clear copper colored liquid

smell is faint hops, not much else.

taste was a nice balance of hops and malt. I didn't get any maple flavor from this though.

mouthfeel was crisp and smooth. very nicely balanced and super easy to drink

overall, a good beer, but I didn't rate it very high because of lack of maple flavor even though it is clearly marked on the label.

Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of pine and light citrus hoppy notes with some sweet caramel malt. Taste is a mix between some medium hoppy notes with some citrus and resin notes backed by a solid and a bit too sweet caramelized malt backbone. Body is about average with medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad but definitely a bit too sweet which makes me wonder if maple syrup is really bringing anything worthwhile to the mix.
