*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.

Dogfish 75 Cask at Dogfish Rehoboth, served in a "perfect pint" glass.
Appearance: A hazy amber that glows. Slightly transparent. Huge frothy fluffy white head, about two fingers.
Smell: Some muddled citrus, orange. Faint hops and sugars. A bit of pineapple and sweet fruits.
Taste: Noticeable sweetness, but no maple syrup (which appears to be one of the ingredients listed). Citrus again, coating the mouth.
Mouthfeel: Light feel, medium body, low carbonation (almost too thin, even for a cask). Served a little cold for a cask, but fine. Also, a bit too sweet.
Drinkability: Good but not great. The sweetness gets tiresome after a while. Glad I tried, but wouldn't session or drink often.

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.

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.

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!

Poured into a large snifter glass. Glass of cold water on the side to sip from periodically.
Appearance: As poured the lightly hazed golden orange beer with lots of visibly active carbonation has a 1 ½” thick, off-white, fluffy head of foam that recedes fairly slowly. As the billowing hills and valleys of foam recede there are legs, streaks and patches of lacing on the sides of the glass. Sipping creates a sheet of foam that turns into a collection of small streaks and speckles of lacing that cling to the sides of the glass.
Smell: The aroma is citric (grapefruit rind) and pine resin with a touch of floral character. There seems to be a bit of maple syrup showing, but I’m not sure I’d have spotted it as maple syrup if I had not known syrup was used in bottle conditioning the beer.
Taste: The flavor shows a bit of sweet caramel from the malt backbone along with the citrus rind and pine resin from the hops. This one is fresh enough that there is also a touch of maple syrup flavor showing up now and then, here and there before the finish.
Mouthfeel: The mouth feel is medium bodied and slightly prickly with the more than adequate carbonation. The finish is medium long, beginning in citrus and pine tinged malt and then trailing off into a citric and resinous bitterness backed up by a touch of maple that slides away into bitter dryness, inviting the next sip.
Drinkability and Overall Impression: This was an enjoyable beer that was easily drinkable. Its family heritage is obvious from the first sniff and the first sip. My overall impression is that if you like either of the two parent beers (the 60 min or the 90 min) this is worth a try. That said I’ll not go out of my way to have this one again. It’s a good beer and definitely an “in-between” beer but I never felt the need of an “in-between” beer and don’t know that this one has convinced me.
