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.

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

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.

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..

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip glass. "Bottled in 2012" on the label so not sure the exact date but I got it the 2nd week it was here in the market. It was a slightly hazy apricot color with good carb streams. It had a massive foamy white head that settled into a constant, thick foam cap. Great lacing with lots sticking.

The aroma was a good mix of grassy and citric hops along with a sweet malt base and a little whiff of the maple but not much. The flavor follows the aroma and starts off with the maltier side of it then progresses to the fruity hops with a mild bitterness that increases a bit in the aftertaste. A good mix of the hoppy 60 and the sweeter 90. Mouthfeel is creamy with good carbonation and a good aftertaste.

Overall, a really good beer that does met your expectation of a slightly sweeter mixed 60 and 90. While I liked it, I didn't love it so I'll probably stick to the 60 for my DFH hop fix...maybe the 75 if it came in a 12oz format. Avail here in TX as an occasional release.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer

Consumed 4/29/12

Appearance: Hazy, deep orange with some copper - absurdly gigantic head to start, but it fades in a reasonable amount of time - keeps a nice, off-white cap and leaves sticky lacing

Smell: Nice citrus aromas - orange flesh, grapefruit flesh, some zest - smells hoppy, but not aggressive - pale and caramel malts, some sweetness but not too much - really does smell like a combination of 60 and 90 minute, with some other touches (maple sweetness)

Taste: A nice balance of citrus, malts, and a touch of maple - orange and grapefruit, some grassy notes - on the malty side - it seems like the caramel maltiness of 90 Minute really shines through - nicely bitter, but not really aggressive, some lingering pith - a touch of maple, works surprisingly well with the malty sweetness

Mouthfeel: Remarkably smooth, like whoah - medium body, nicely carbonated

Overall: Surprisingly good

Somehow this combines some of the best elements of 60 Minute and 90 Minute to create a legitimately different and undeniably enjoyable beer. The maple is just the cherry on top. Remarkably drinkable.
