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.

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

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.

[Best served in a Tulip glass]

The pour was a hazy medium orange with a huge (3-4 finger) white frothy head that receded at a nice slow steady pace down to a few puddles with a large collar and produced some excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, pine and citrus hops and a soapy yeast with hints of maple, caramel and citrus (grapefruit).

The taste was moderately bitter with a slight malty maple sweetness early on and then became decently hoppy with a bitter citrus peel presence towards the end. The flavor lasted a good long while after the swallow, with a nice hoppy citrus taste along with a mild sweetness that was left to lie on the taste buds for a little while longer.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a moderately dry texture and almost prickly carbonation.

Overall this is an IPA that is not to overpowering, but does posses a nice sweet hoppiness and is very well balanced. Highly recommended...

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

had at the Grey Lodge Pub for the Johnny Cask night promo back in March

not much of a head after the initial pour from the firkin...slight haze to it, from the maple syrup...almost looked like iced tea...light amber color

maple syrup dominated the nose...hops are muted but become prevalent as the beer warms....sweet malt....some caramel in there also

when i took my first sip it reminded me a burnt rubber taste...not what i look for in my beers... i'm assuming this was from the maple syrup...this went away as the beer warmed and the hops showed up...sweetness comes in from the malt...citrus and grapefruit are there but not front and center

smoooth going down...if it wasn't for that off smelling burnt rubber taste in the beginning this would be something i could drink all night

becomes more drinkable as the beer warms and that burnt rubber taste fades and the hops step in....not sure how necessary the maple syrup is to this concoction, but i'd like to see if that rubber taste is there or not if the syrup isn't added to the cask...good balance of hops as expected from the 60 Min/90 Min combo

Pours a clear apple juice color with a big, frothy white head that leaves big chunks of lacing.

Smells of bright fruity hops with a little toasted malt.

Tastes of the bright hops that is rounded out with a solid malt base. Malt notes lead off with toasted biscuit and a touch of caramel with a moderate sweetness. This gives way to fruity hops characterized by tropical notes as well as orange and floral notes. A moderate bitterness balances everything out. This all ends with a quick jab from the malt as it ends, finishing with a touch of sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this met my expectations, and is now my favorite of the timed IPAs from DFH.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

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.

Right from the cask at Dogfish Head in Rehobeth, DE.

A: Served a clear light amber/orange color with a towering off white head that settles very slowly. The head is persistant all the way down and the lacing on the glass is beautiful.

S: Herbal, grassy, and citrus hops come through so fresh and aromatic. The citrus comes in a second wave then a breath of malty goodness. Some fresh bread, toasted grains and caramel. A pleasant maple aroma is underneath all this.

T: Hoppy but not over the top. Fresh grapefruit, tropical fruit and herbal flavors are clean and abundant. Semi-sweet roasted malt is doughy and toffee sweet. Maple is a pleasant flavor in the background and it really works to balance the bitterness.

M: Smooth, creamy medium body with great palate appeal.

D: Another wonderful creation from Dogfish Head and the combination of generous hops and maple syrup works even better than I thought it would. Easy to drink and very flavorful this goes down great as a cask ale!

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.
