Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ManekiNeko on 02-06-2004

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.

750ml bottle found at BevMo in Valencia, CA. Pours a highly carbonated, cloudy, golden-orange color. The head is fluffy, white, and slow-going down. Scent is nothing like I thought it would be. When I saw that this beer was brewed with maple syrup...I was expecting it to be the most malty of 60 and 90 minute. However, both 90 and 60 minute are more malty than 75. Weird. Scent is a bit underwhelming with mellow hops...and hints of honey. Struggling to pick up the maple syrup. Taste is...still no maple syrup. I think I enjoyed Squall much more than this. Hops...but lack of depth. Doesn't have that malt profile that 60 and 90 minute have...yet, doesn't have that hoppiness I love as a California craft beer drinker. Mouthfeel is great with the smooth, creaminess. Not too harsh on the bitterness. Overall, I would drink this one over 60 and 90 minute any day. However, I need to review this to the style. It makes no sense for an IPA that claims to be in the middle of the two maltiest IPAs I've ever had...to be not that malty at all. Again, weird. Tasty beer overall.

Pours out a really clear yellow amber with three fingers of very creamy white suds. Lacing around the glass.
Smell is malty sugar and booze along with some lemon peel.
Taste is strictly grapefruit rind and sugar malts. Otherwise this is very bland. Mabey it has been in the bottle too long. I do reserve the right to try this again.
Mouthfeel is a little sticky and the flavors leave very quickly leaving a lemon pledge sort of film on the toungue.
Overall this is a pretty good beer but very dissapointing knowing how 60 min and 90 min taste.

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.

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.

A pint off a freshly tapped cask on Johnny Cask Thursday!

A - Served with a hazy, copper body...two fingers worth of white, creamy, dense head...great retention that held about half a finger throughout the beer...a nice sheet of lacing was left

S - The aroma was lighter that I wanted/expected...the hops are floral with a touch of pine...there is a slight toasted grain aroma as well...I think the dense head might have muted the nose a touch

T - Hops are all around in the flavor...they present themselves first with bright citrus...the citrus is rounded out with a great caramel malt backbone...that malt is not overpowering as it still lets the hops shine through...once that leaves the hops come back with a piney flavor that leaves a nice bitterness behind

M - Medium bodied...this one is oh so creamy...bitter and hoppy just like an IPA should be

O - I wanted to be at the brewpub on Thursday just so I could have this...and it did not disappoint! A great blend of the 60 and 90 Minutes...this is my favorite of the "Minute" gang

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

A: Lighter brown-amber body. Nothing but an off-white skim. No lacing.

S: Maple syrup. Brown sugar. Caramel. Slight hop bitter aromas.

T: Slightly stale tasting. Maple syrup.lt. Citric hops are minimal

M: Flat, yet hearty. Slightly cloying after taste.

D: Took some effort to finish the pint. I am going to chalk this one up to not being in the firkin long enough.

Note: this review was from the original simulcast release even at monk's.
