Availability: Rotating

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.

A - this long awaited beer pours a hazy ginger ale color with a half finger of head, moderate amounts of carbonation streams

S - the hops do not disappoint, that typical and renown DFH hops, the huge grapefruit and pine aromas that make DFH great, some crystallized sugar to balance the hops

T - it really tastes like someone dissolved a piece of maple sugar candy in DFh 90-Min, what a great idea. The flavors play off each other supremely, the hop profile against the sinful maple tree syrup-ness.

M&D - rich and complex, a great twist to the DFH IPA's we all love.

A-amber with a creamy colored head. good lacing

S-strong scent of fresh citrusy hops with a touch of barley. strong and complex.

T-comes in with a smooth taste of fresh citrusy hops, again with a touch of barley. a citrusy bitterness sticks to the tongue. good matching after-taste. very creamy.

M-very creamy, almost watery with a creamy finish. expected considering being from the cask

O-it is good. it definitely does taste like something in between the 90 and the 60. i'm not getting any maple at all. i'm appreciating the cask aspect. i'd definitely get this again. i'll be on the look out for the bottled version.

please release this in cans...i know how ridiculous that sounds but it'd be all i'd ever buy.

NOTE: At the brewpub, they still "hand-mix" the 60 and 90 Minute, so I could probably do a slightly different review each time.

I have had this beer numerous times at Dogfish Head brew pubs, but actually doing a review made me think more about how much I really like it, especially compared to the multitude of options now available.

A: amber mostly clear, carbonation present. Head has retention and significant lacing.
S: little grassy, light lemon notes, not too strong on either
T: Light citrus and a little nutty initial taste. This gives way to the main malt-heavy yet grassy-bitter hops taste. The combination tastes a little woody to me.
M: carbonation on tongue up front, coating malt and dry little tug for second half of taste.
O: had always enjoyed this as a nice balance between 60 and 90. This still holds true. It's a solid offering, but nothing in it makes me out it over the top. I thought I'd rate it higher, and I still enjoy it, but not as much as I did or as other options out there.

My recent glasses have seemed maybe a little more on the 90 side (is it bad the bartenders know me). Maybe that has nothing to do with it.

Appearance: Hazy gold. Insanely fluffy bright white head that persists for a long time. Crazy lacing. Head eventually drops to a thin cap that almost disappears but refuses to give up.

Smell: Lemon and earthy/herbal hops. Big hit of citrus. Orange flesh. Maple is sweet and adds a nice dimension to the IPA profile. A little dank and musty. Very musty. Old wood and a yeasty backing. Smells old, but can't be. Pithy.

Taste: Citrus hops. Grapefruit flesh and a touch of lemon zest. Maple adds an unexpected layer of sweetness. A little damp and earthy with a pithy finish. Literally straddles the profile of 60 minute an 90 minute. Malts run a touch sweet with a dry, powdery, bready profile. As it warms the citrus really jumps out and the musty flavors drop away. Bright orange and grapefruit. A tiny hint of caramel malts.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderately high carbonation. Finishes with a lingering slightly dry bitterness. Smooth and easy drinking.

Overall: Definitely a stand up offering from Dogfish Head. They know how to make an IPA and this is no different. The maple is a nice touch and adds some decent depth to an all-around solid IPA.

Pours a cloudy brownish straw color with two fingers of head that enjoyed a lengthy period of retention and left intricate lace behind. The nose is slightly citrusy. The flavor profile is also citrusy with some hops and a slight trace of maple sweetness on the finish.

I really like DFH 60 and I love DFH 90 – I guess that you can’t simply meet in between.

Had this at the Alehouse when I was in Virginia visiting the sis.

This is one beautiful brew....very dark amber color with this big fluffy white head that stays and stays...

Huge pungent piney aroma rolls out of the glass at me... Smells very similar to the 90 Minute but perhaps not quite as boozy..

This combines the piney hoppiness and malty sweetness very well.. Its hoppy and piney and pungent but at the same time, sweet and malty and delicious.. This is terrific!

I could drink these til my head hit the table so that should say something about the drinkability...

Awesome brew..

On tap at the pub in RB.

Light cream gold color with massively thick head. Little head retention. Nice, thick, bold lace. Very nice pint pour.

Nose is bready, yeasty, and rich-smelling. Touches of honey and lighter hop notes than expected.

Sweet hit, with a light sour finish. Honey, sugar, and light hops come together for a powerful flavor.

Deep, thick, complex body.

This is one seriously good beer. Enough to make you want to visit RB, even without any other DFH offerings.

Poured from a single tap ant the DFH Alehouse. The liquid is classic DFH IPA, clear and copper gold with good carbonation. The Head was nice, thet usually pour it slow to reduce head but this one looked good.

The smell is nice, Lots of shark DFH Hops going on. This smells very good, Very high quality aroma Crisp and clean strong citrus and piny hops.

The taste is nice, A great happy hour selection. piny notes and a good full malty backbone make this brew very well balanced.

The mouthfeel is very good, nice medium to think body. It works well.

The drinkability is very good. toned down a bit you can have this brew anytime. I would get it again easy. Prosit, MK
