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.

day two at NERAX 2009. this was actually tapped at the start of the night, so people here at NERAX were actually getting a head start before all the others at the "simul-cask" on thursday, march 19. kicked within an hour or so. muhahaha

crystal clear amber with light straw tones. creamy, sudsy head fades to wisps and sudsy ring. micro-splotches of lace here and there.

aroma: light, but piney, resinous hops with touch of citrus rind. sweet caramel and esters (apple and grapefruit)

taste: fruity citrus sweetness and caramel with quick move to hoppy pine and citrus, but still fruity. trace of maple character within the sweetness. moderate yet crisp, balanced bitterness.

smooth, light syrup feel, with touch of resins in the finish. light but tight carbonation.

*Huge* thick white foamy head. The cleanliness of the white head is almost eerie... Brew is brilliantly clear orange with some browns and yellows. One of the best looking brews I've ever seen.

Whoa. I can smell this from two feet away!!! Very maple. Smells very well hopped, nice orange, pineapple, lemon, and pine scents. No off scents. A perfect scent.

Surprisingly light on the tongue! Very airy and wet. Citrus is not dominate like I had assumed it would be. Maple is also light and well placed. Perfect light carbonation, matches the style amazingly. There's a funky bitterness on the back end of the aftertaste, but it doesn't take too much away. Lots of vanilla too. I would like to be a little more flavor prominence, but over all very nice.

I'm not a huge DFH fan, but this brew puts them back on my map. I hope they continue to roll out brews like this. 75-minute is one of the best, most enjoyable brews I've had in sometime. Highly recommended for a "lighter" IPA.

Served on tap in a pint glass at Fountainhead.

Appearance: 75 minute IPA is a translucent copper color with a well-retaining white head leaves layers of sticky lace down the sides of the glass.

Smell: Light caramel malt, nice citrusy hops, and a bit of herbal hop aroma as well.

Taste: The flavor is a clear balance of the 60 and 90 minute IPA's. There is some lighter malts that are mostly overshadowed by a darker caramel malt, and then the hop additions are reminiscent of each beer in equal parts. A citrus and pine blend work well with the sweet malt, and the strong bitterness from 60 minute stays a bit more in the background.

Mouthfeel: The body is on the lighter side of medium, with a nice hop presence cutting through any heaviness that would otherwise linger from the malt. Medium carbonation and lightly sticky.

Overall: As a mix between the 60 and 90 minute IPA's, this demonstrates characteristics of both. Since I enjoy 90 minute and think 60 minute is just so-so, this falls somewhere in between.

Thick, tan head pokes out just above the rim. Carbonation is a bit much here. Color is Golden orange. Smells of hops, spice and a bit of syrup. Tastes creamy with a vein of hops in the middle and caramel and maple sweetness all around. Balance is spot on. Medium bodied with a little heat at the back.

Wonderfully smooth and magically delicious!

Had this at the new(ish) DFH restaurant in Fairfax, VA.

I like this better than either of the component beers - the 60 and 90 minute IPA. It is the first Dogfish Head beer where I feel like the musty, chicory house taste of the brewery really works to its best advantage.

Pours deep copper with a small, lively head. The aroma is rich and woody, with a chocolatey, chicory bite. The flavor is woody, musty, and coffelike, with a cinnamony spice on the finish. There is a tight, woody bitterness on the finish, with a little milky sweetness. The mouthfeel is creamy and rich. B the flavor changes dramatically with food, becoming smoother and maltier.
