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 750 ml bottle into a dogfish head signature glass...

Pours with a huge, off-white head that lingers, looks great. Lacing sticks to the glass and remains throughout. Beer itself starts out at a hazy orange colour, clears up as it hits it's ideal serving temp, and goes back to hazy orange as it warms to room temp.

Smells citrusy sweet. Can definitely detect the malt backbone and the maple syrup, even with a nose that's hampered by seasonal allergies.

Taste starts off citrusy, turns bitter, and finishes sweet. Lots of nice carmel notes on the finish.

Mouthfeel is great. Carbonation is almost perfect for a bottle conditioned beer.

All in all, a very good beer. Very happy that my beer guy held onto a bottle for me. I think this would age very well - disappointed that I couldn't get a second bottle to test this theory, but not much of the good stuff from DFH makes it to texas...

poured from bottle into a tulip. Pours a nice orange color with a very foamy head.

Really good and complex aromas of citrus, florals, hops, tropical citrus and some resiny notes too.

Full bodied with a very good and smooth upfront attack. Thins out a slight bit on the mid with well balanced flavors of citrus, resin, and florals with a touch of hops.

The taste and feel lack compared to the aromas. Still, a quality IPA and very enjoyable.

750ml bottle on date is smeared off. I like the label. Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy golden amber in color. Big three finger white frothy head. Crazy retention and loads of lacing left all over the place.

Aroma: Citrusy earthy and floral hops. Lighter caramel malts and maple syrup.

Taste: Citrusy and floral hops hit up front. Mellows out a bit with some biscuit and caramel malts along with sweetness coming from the maple syrup before finishing with a more piney hops bitterness. Actually has some complexity and interesting flavors going on but I still think I prefer 60 or 90 as opposed to this one.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation. Bottle conditioning makes this smooth and easy drink. The maple syrup adds a bit too much sweetness than I would have cared for. I think I like the straight up 75 minute at their brewpubs over this one. I would almost say it's a slightly toned down 90 minute. Not a bad beer just a little sweet for an ipa.
