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: poured into a DFH snifter produces a slightly hazed orange with a huge slightly off white head good retention
S: smells oh so grapefruity with some caramel malt backbone showing through
T: malt comes through first followed by citrus and floral hop flavor. aftertaste is resinously hoppy with a little bit of caramel malt
M: vigorous but soft carbonation from the bottle condition and medium bodied
O: Dogfish makes some great beers and this one is no exception. Drink it if you can find it.

Best of the timed IPAs from DFH. Exceptional balance between hops and malt. Not an in your face hop bomb nor a boozy IIPA. Subtlety here. Both hops and malt are noticeable in aroma and flavor. The maple comes out at the very end where there is a tad of acidity. Body is medium, perhaps on the light-medium side. Despite the claim, mouthfeel is soft, but not soft as other bottle conditioned beers. A great compromise between West coast and East coast.

A: The gentlest of pours yielded a glass consuming bone white head that sat like a rigid foam iceberg dominating the vessel with an active surface of micro bubble pops. A towering mountainous structure the wait is long for the head to retreat leaving a generous amount of foam lace rings condescending down the chalice. A pale orange coloring has a good clarity and a misty rise of effervesce.

S: The nose was a bit lighter then expecting, soft pine brush and dry lemons.

T: The flavor was sweetly toasted grain upfront with a good level of hop awareness of pine and dried grapefruit. The maple syrup brings a dry sweetness to the middle of the palate before transcending to a dry hopping finish of pine, grapefruit and dried orange grinds. Flowery citrus, sweet lemony hops and a warmth of pine alcohol with a touch of lime rounds things out.

M: leans more towards the lighter side of medium bodied, a bit of a disappointment substance wise as well crispness wise.

O: Overall it takes a few sips to truly reveal the complexity of this beer, the first few I saw nothing special but as the drink progresses the sweet maple syrup and sweetly toasted grain lends support and balance coming though nicely and the hops become brighter. Drinkability becomes easier, smoother and more enjoyable. Reluctantly to say I don’t entirely agree with the “sometimes 60 is not enough and 90 is to much” bottle labeling. As with most instances of hybrids you lose the best part of the spectrum with the blending of the two. The 60 a much more crisper summer time treat, the 90 a more wine body and complexity with alcohol warmth, both I wouldn’t compromise for this.

The nose is sweet, almost like molasses. The hops really arent that evident. There are some hints of piney hops though. The taste is definitely IPA. Sweet, sticky pine with slight notes of citrus which followed by a syrupy sweetness and quickly swarmed by a 90 Minute-esque hoppy/malt balance. This is just as awesome as I had hoped. I need many more.

Poured from a 22.4 ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Pours up a nice golden amber color with a very white head.

The aroma is that of classic IPA with hop forward scents of citrus and herbs. There is just a hint of sweetness to the nose.

Again, the taste is pretty classic IPA with hoppy notes right away. Although the citrus scent was of lemons, the taste is more grapefruit. The finish is relatively mild and the bitter notes fade quickly. The bottle claims to be conditioned with maple syrup, which really excited me in the store, but there is almost no signs of it on the palate.

This beer is light and fizzy. It's rather refreshing for a 7.5% abv beer.

Overall, this is quite a good beer. It's a well balanced IPA worth a try if you can find it. If not the 60 minute will do just fine.

750ml Bottle

A - Hazy copper in color with a frothy eggshell head. Okay lacing.

S - Hops abound, citrus and pine aroma. A little malt in the background.

T - Malty and slightly sweet. Hoppy and orange peel. Not a huge bitter finish.

M - Medium carb/body. Finishes dry.

O - Better than the 90, IMO. Less malty but I wish this beer was brighter in some aspects.

75 Minute IPA pours a hazy dark honey yellow with a massive thick white head on top. The foam dissolves very slowly to a thick sheet on the beer. It leave splotches of lace on the glass as it goes down.

The aroma has notes of pale malt, lemongrass, toffee and caramel.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is soft on the palate with an effervescent fizz. The flavor is malty with some flowery notes. It begins with caramel and bread, followed by orange citrus and lemon grass. It finishes dry and mildly bitter with a hint of maple candy at the end. Once gone the toffee and lemongrass linger on the palate.

There's a little alcohol burn at the end of each sip and the beer didn't have as much maple as I thought it would. Still, it's tasty, well balanced and easy to drink.

A: This poured a hazy gold with lots of light tan head.
S: It smelled like grainy wheat bread with some earthy caramel and maple and pine.
T: It tasted the same as the smell, with a surprising amount of bready character, and only subtle hops or maple. It had a mostly clean and sweet aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick with moderate carbonation. Fairly full body.
D: This was a decent beer, but really not that great. The smell and taste were ok, and the body was better. It had a smooth finish, so it was easy to drink. Not a bad brew, but really not worth seeking out.

A billowing white head erupts from the hazy copper body packed with loose bubbles of carbonation that slowly dissolve to leave a scattered lacing.

Pine and citrus hop aromas float from the glass as well as grass notes before the toffee, malt, and maple appear as the beer warms.

What an awesome flavor with pine and citrus hops up front with just the right touch of maple and malt sweetness as it warms and perhaps a hint of spice.

Generous carbonation and a full body highlight the mouthfeel ending with a spicy hop finish.

Great IPA! Absolutely delicious and unlike any of its counterparts. DFH got this right.
