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.

A-Poured into a snifter. Head is about pinky sized and lingers on. Beautiful golden yellow color with a slight haze. Very pretty beer.

S-A sweet malty nose hits you first, followed by a light hop note. The maple syrup is there, but it is well hidden and very hard to pick out.

T-The sweetness hits you first. It is more of a blend of different sweetnesses, One from the malt and one from the addition of the syrup. The malt/maple sweetness then blend into citrusy hope flavors that morph into hop bitterness. It's actually quite nice. This is a very well balanced beer taste wise.

M-Excellent. Smooth and light on the carbonation.

O-Overall probably my favorite IPA from DogFish head. For $7.50 here in Raleigh, hard to beat the price. Too bad it's very limited!!

A: Beautiful orange color, that almost looks like a neon when held to the light. Big, fluffy head of at least three fingers. The head lingers for several minutes and a heavy amount of the fluffiness remains and rounds in the center of the glass, while a good lacing sticks to the glass.

S: Smells hoppy more than anything. There is some floralness, and not much malty sweetness scent. There are some subtle citrus notes with some every-so-slight maple whiffs. From a scent perspective, this seems like it would be pretty dull.

T: Taste is much better than the smell suggests. This packs a decent punch that one wouldnt think from smelling. Very good hop character without a ton of sweetness. The maple syrup almost comes off as smokey - was hoping for more definitive maply taste though. There is a pretty good bitter flavor with some bready, yeasty taste. With every drink the citrus and floral notes come to fruition a little more as well.

M: The mouthfeel is amazing on this. What one would think is going to be light, turns out to be creamy and medium body. It almost seems milky, but it works.... very well.

O: My favorite of all the "minute IPA" brews. 90 is too malty for me, and 60 seems to be lacking something. Was hoping for a bit more complexity with the maple syrup, but still has a presence. The lingering fluffy head and creamy body really caught me off guard, but in a really good way. My wife really liked as well, and I think she said it best when she said "I would drink this again." I concur.

This IPA had a nice soft citrus taste. It was not extremely hoppy, but the presence of the cascade hops is definitely noticeable. I had Dogfish 60, 90 & 120 minute IPA's and I favor this one the most. Unfortunately, it is very limited. If you enjoy an IPA that is not extremely powerful (ex. imperial IPA), I would recommend drinking this. It's 7.5% ABV. The appearance has a nice golden/orange hue. I was expecting to taste more maple syrup because Dogfish uniquely use this ingredient when they blend the 60 & 90 minute together. However, I did notice a slight sweetness to the beer that I find enjoyable. This beer is limited and I suggest you try tasting it before it is gone. You will not be disappointed.

Poured from a 750 bottle into a snifter glass.

A: A golden amber color that is fairly clear with a 2 finger huge fluffy white head. Nice full glass lacing.

S: I'm getting the signature DFH yeast smell right off the bat with citrus, graham cracker, caramel, syrup and some pine notes.

T: That great signature DFH yeasty flavor and huge citrus hops just jump out at you. Grapefruit, peach, pineapple and some slight floral notes mix mid way with a hefty sweet caramel, graham cracker, some biscuit notes and a bit of the maple syrup. Finish stays with the citrus and some prickly pine notes come in but the finish surprisingly stays creamy, maybe from the syrup.

M: Creamy, smooth, slight alcohol and really overall just enjoyable. The bottle conditioning gives you a bit more carbonation, but it still drinks well.

O: Wow, did I really enjoy this beer. More heft than 60 Minute, but not near as sweet as the 90 Minute, even with the maple syrup added. The flavor was all DFH, and the blend is masterful.

This is a winner, winner beer. This should be the signature beer of DFH, it's that good. Perfect blend and perfect mouthfeel. Love it.

A-Poured into my DFH snifter glass. 2.5 finger head that stays till the end of the glass. A clear Light amber color.

S-Smells similar to the 60 min., a very floral hoppy aroma with notes of sweet tropical fruits. I'm not picking up any maple syrup in the nose.

T-Opens up with a heavy sweet malty flavor that follows the nose. Then the hops creep in to balance out the sweetness, but are pretty mild. Im struggling to taste any maple syrup though which is a bit of a disappointment.

M-Nice smooth mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

O-A solid beer, but pretty similar to the 60 min., but with a little more malt flavor. Somewhat disappointed that I couldn't taste the maple syrup because I think that would have really elevated this beer to the next level. Would buy again if they offered it as a 4/6 pack option but not worth the 750ml treatment/premium.

Beautiful golden-orange body with a giant mountain of white head. Very high carbonation. Looks very pretty in my Kuhnhenn tulip.

Nose is candy sweet malt and a aspirin-like hop bitterness. Wonderful smell.

Flavor is rich, sweet, smooth and tart.I don't know if it's the maple or not, but this is smoother and sweeter than I expected from a 7.5% IPA. Very flavorful and balanced.

Mouthfeel is slick and smooth, with only a little chalky tartness from the hops.

Overall, this is one tasty brew. Not what I expected, but a veritable treat for the palate. Nice to enjoy while watching the Pats dominate in London.

Poured from a bottle into a Dogfish Head snifter (just like Sam would want me to). It's a stunningly beautiful pour. The color is light orange with good clarity and wonderful effervescence. The head is mammoth, white, and creamy, has outstanding retention, and leaves some snowdrift-like lacing on the sides of the glass. I get nice citrus fruit on the nose. Primarily lemon, but with a little bit of peach and orange.

The beer has a medium body and nice lively mouthfeel from the bottle conditioning. A steady stream of CO2 opens the palate opens up and subjects you to nice fresh flavors of hoppy bitterness, fresh fruit, and floral spiciness. Lots of times, IPAs tend to be too sweet on the front of the palate and then finish dry. This one is very floral and hoppy up front and in the middle, then sweetens up a bit right on the finish, giving the typical dryness a nice marmalade-like component that is very pleasant. Once the beer flattens just a bit, the feel becomes slightly sticky and velvety smooth.

This is simply an outstanding beer from the folks at DFH. I find it to be far superior to both their 60 minute and 90 minute IPAs. Enjoyable, not too boozy, well-balanced between bitter and sweet, and with citrus-like hop flavors instead of piney, resin-like notes. Excellent beer. Very well done!

750 ml bottle, no bottled-on date but the bottle shop got it on Wednesday 10/23, poured into a snifter glass

A: Deep Golden color. Can't see through it. Nice 2.5 finger head with great retention. Nice lacing on the glass. Lot of carbonation.

S: Is ok, Getting some sweet tropical fruit. Some malty character. Honestly little wet cardboard, not the best smelling beer out there.

T: Malty with low bitterness. Refreshing, with a bready feel.

M: Nice thick full bodied with tons of carbonation. Slight creamy feel.

O: I still prefer the 60 min, but its solid. Probably wouldn't buy again, but glad I tried it.

750 ml bottle, no bottled-on date, poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a clear golden color, topped with a huge fluffy white head, good retention and lots of lacing.

S- Lots of sweet tropical fruit, mango, pineapple and grapefruit, some bitter resin as well. The aroma is still predominatly sweet with bready, graham cracker malt and maple syrup.

T- Nice blend of sweet malt and tropical hops. Bitterness is kept to a moderate level, but contributes a lot of juicy tropical fruit flavors. Big biscuity, sweet malt, caramel and maple syrup. The balance is really great.

M- Medium-bodied, moderate carbonation and a smooth feel.

O- I really enjoyed this beer, the tropical hops and sweet malt and maple syrup work really nicely together. It's also very drinkable. This is definitely one of the best offerings I've had from DFH.
