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.

Pours a hazy darker amber with billowing, dense white head. Rings of lace down the glass. Smell: toasted grain, caramel, earthy, slightly minty, with some orange citrus. Taste: toast, tangerine, apricot, earthy with herbal notes. Medium+ bodied with a luxurious, creamy feel. Glad to have tried, but doesn’t quite impress. Bottled 2012 C.

Poured into a crystal mug, the beer has a almost clear deep golden color. The enormous head is a creamy beige and sticks around for a long time. Good lacing as well.
The smell announces citrus and pine hops and a malty backbone.
Tasting the brew, the citrus and pineapple flavors build the front. In the middle the malt as well as the maple syrup make their presence noticeable. The finish is composed of a combination of the more bitter piney hops, and some of the syrup qualities. Quite interesting mouthfeel.
Overall a good beer! Just like expected from Dogfish!

A 750 ml bottle from Dog and Bull in Croydon, poured into a Duvel tulip. This appeared as a clear copper with a large white head. This settled to a coating but left ample lacing. The nose was pine, citrus (especially lemon and orange) and some maple syrup. Taste was a nice interplay of hops and sweetness with emphasis on notes of citrus, some breadiness and the maple syrup. Body was medium, creamy and with a healthy carbonation. This is NOT a hop bomb, but a pleasant and remarkably well-balanced IPA, and it is more than just a combination of 60 and 90- minute. I like both but might like this even better than either. If I can get any more, I am eager to try this again SOON!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A- Pours a mostly clear light orange with many many fingers of foamy white head with good lacing.

S- Nice piney hop presence balanced with sweet smell from the maple syrup I assume. Not quite as awesome smelling as the 60 minute imo but very nice and balanced.

T- Mmmm, balance balance balance for sure. Your mouth is like, oooh hops, no wait malt, wait there's the hops again. Oh never mind, sweet caramel malty finish. Me want more!

M- They got this just right, love the feel. Medium body and medium carbonation, just right.

O- Well i'm definitely a fan. I think 60 > 75 > 90 and i'll be trying and reviewing a 120 soon! 75 Minute is greatly balanced and very delicious. A little more nose and i'd put it up there with 60 minute.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 750mL brown bottle into a clear Duvel tulip. No freshness date. Purchased at Wine Warehouse (Charlottesville, VA) for $8.99.

A: Very clear amber with towering, tightly bubbled, 3-4 finger head with good retention and copious lacing.

S: The aroma is fainly earthy-herbal hops with a decided caramel/toffee note. Pretty light for an IPA overall.

T: The flavor really comes off nicely, although I still like 90 Minute IPA better than this one. The herbal, grassy, floral punch of 60 Minute IPA lends a very unique flavor when coupled with the caramel, sweeter dark malt notes of 90 Minute IPA. This is not a typical IPA, with more subtle citrus and floral contributions, but the sweetness of the maltiness seems almost more significant, and maybe this is the maple.

M: A little too dry, and this might be the reason that I like 90 Minute better. The body is firmly medium. The dryness and the sweetness seem incongruous and detract from the feel. The higher-than-needed carbonation also decreases the body and gives it a drier, thinner feel.

O: While I am glad I tried this one, I won't go back and will look for 90 Minute IPA when I need a DFH IPA fix. I am not a fan of 60 Minute IPA at all (too herbal, grassy) so I was glad that I enjoyed this, but I won't go back to this guy in the future. Still, worth a shot as it is very unique.

Strange Brew; Poured from a capped bomber into a tulip- poured a relatively clear copper color with a massive three finger head (I assume because of the bottle conditioning). Beautiful lacing and very good retention.

Smell is really off- I just bottled a batch of DFH 60 min clone and this beer smells like the yeast/hop sediment (trub) at the bottom of the fermenter. A little maple syrup comes through but mostly the funk...

Tastes good- like another BA said, more similar to the 90 than the 60. Good malt backbone, nice hop bitterness, a little woody (?). Don't get much hop flavor (ie pine, citrus, flowery) but the bitterness is there.

Mouthfeel is good- medium body with moderate carbonation. This is certainly a strange one. Disappointed because of the smell- perhaps something went wrong this time?

Poured from 750 ml bottle into Half Acre tulip.

A- pours a light golden with a near full glass of thick off-white head. Top 2" of glass is nearly covered in lacing.

S- sweet malts, citrus, and maybe a hint of maple syrup.

T- light caramel, lots of citrus (lemon and orange) and nice pine bitterness. Don't get much maple syrup. Almost more of a molasses like bitterness if anything.

M- medium body, high carbonation. Nice creaminess.

O- good beer, but nothing I would seek out again.

Bomber purchased from Marion Street, 7-8 oz. poured into a Bruery tulip on March 22nd, 2012.

A - Hazy, medium golden coloring. Enormous four-finger, super foamy, eggshell head. Outstanding retention and lacing. The DFH brews I've had lately all seem to look pretty excellent.

S - Similar to 90 minute, the malts absolutely outweigh the hops in the nose. Light caramel, maple syrup, cinnamon sugar, banana bread, bright fruits, and chives. Relatively complex.

T - Heavy breadyness. Almonds or some other similar nuttiness. Maple syrup cuts through at the backend, blending with moderate hop bitterness and leaves a touch of sweetness into the finish. I greatly appreciate that this is not overly sweet.

M - Huge carbonation as I could've guessed from the look. Medium body. Fairly smooth. Very little aftertaste in the wake of a short, lightly dry finish.

D - It's 90 minute with more finesse and control over the flavor. I can't imagine how this would age, as maple syrup seems to drop off far too quickly in other beers, yet the bottle conditioning somewhat supports cellaring.

3.53/5  rDev -14.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a medium golden amber that was very minimally translucent and appeared to be totally filtered. Produced a large, froathy, inconsistently dense laced head that remained for a considerably long period of time. The smells are not overly robust with hoppy explosiveness. They are darker hop smells along the pine side. The maple syrup 'bottle-conditioning' is not very detectable. This one might have a little age to it. Malts are noticeable. It seems as though it should be heavier than 7.50 abv. The mouthfeel has a solid bitterness which is expected from the smells alone. I know these have been around for a bit but I'm first seeing them in Chicago the last few weeks. I want to say it would be better fresher. This one, at least, doesn't compare to 90 Min. Glad I tried it.

Cheers!
