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.

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!

3.53/5  rDev -14.5%
look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a slightly hazy yellow-gold with four fingers of dense off-white head that recedes into a dense cap with very good lacing. Beautiful to look at, though a bit of a pain to pour.

S: Dry, piny hop aromas dominate with some sweeter underlying citrus notes. There are also some sweet syrup aromas. Overall the nose seems a bit muted.

T: Piny hops dominate on the tongue as well, giving a very dry and moderately bitter flavor. There are some faint citrus notes underneath and the finish and aftertaste are slightly sweet and bready.

M: Medium body with a good amount of carbonation, this beer feels very dry with the carbonation feeling creamy in comparison. An odd, but good, combination.

O: An interesting beer, overall, though somewhat simple. It'd be nice to have more depth of hop flavors and aromas. It's not as good as fresh 90 Minute, but it's still a decent beer.

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

Pours a translucent gold color with a huge white, fluffy/soapy head is continually fed by bubbles from the bottom and produces impressive lacing. This beer is highly carbonated with the head actually ending up taller than the body.

Aroma begin with plenty of biscuity malts alongside the solid bright citrus and piney hops. The maple syrup starts out subtle but emerges more and more as it warms.

Taste has the same mild citrus kick up front with grapefruit joining the pine from the nose. The bready/biscuity malt is hefty in the background, much like the 90min but the flavor is a bit more complex thanks to the maple syrup addition which comes out more and more as it warms just like the aroma. Less syrupy and sweet than the 90 which makes for a nice balance here.

The mouthfeel is highly carbonated, almost spritzy, to the point of taking away from the beer a little. It is slightly fuller than the 60 minute and more malty and sweet into the finish; still semi-dry, just not as much as the 60 min.

Overall I really like this offering from Dogfish Head; first one in a while to be honest. Their recent larger format series bottles have been a disappointment in my opinion. I wish the $ tag was a little friendlier and it came in a 6 or 4 pack like the 60 & 90 min, but good none the less. Glad I picked up more than one because this beer has been flying off shelves everywhere I have seen it so get it while you can.

4.08/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Sample: 1 bottle 2012

A: Deep copper-orange, insane foamy white head, heavy internal carbonation, very nice

S: Light citrus, hops of course, almost a bit buttery as well, refreshing, but not as fragrant as I would have liked (could be the immense head in my way)

T: Mirrors the nose, light citrus and hops, elements of creaminess/butter (from the maple syrup, I presume), a touch of alcohol, flavors are subtle, though, not incredibly intense

M: Very smooth, not overpowering on the palate, non-lingering aftertaste, so light in the mouth and therefore easy to swallow

O: A light and refreshing ipa, not as heavy in the nose or flavor as I would have liked, but drinkability makes up for it

Pours a nice golden color with a thick, frothy head into my glass. Looks great for the style.

Good mix of citrusy, piney hops with just a hint of sweet malt underneath.

Wow, overpowering bitterness! Citrusy, piney hops mingle with malt incorporating the sweetness of maple syrup into the profile.

Lingering buttery malt is a big surprise here. Not much of the hops left on the palate.

Very interesting take. Higher than 60 but lower than 90 as far as ABV is concerned. Highly drinkable though!

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

Bottled in 2012 but the rest of the date code is smudged.

Served cold into a goblet, 75 minute is a hazy copper color with thick white head. It settles slowly and leaves some nice lace.

Aroma is definitely hoppy with some nice orange zest and minty hop character.

Flavor is intensely bitter, moreso than I was expecting honestly. A small hint of that maple sweetness comes throughat first but then it's all just big hop bitterness. A combination of grapefruit and mint comes on strong. It finishes very dry.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and, in my opinion, over carbonated. I know these are bottle conditioned so I expected it to be a little softer.

Overall pretty good but not something I would get again.

Hazy golden amber with a huge, foamy white head. Fresh floral hops, citrus, and grains with some sharp pine notes. Big fresh, bitter hop kick with syrupy sweetness on the first sip. Lots of smooth, lovely spices. Cirtusy, mildly malty body with a bold hoppy mouthfeel. Crisp finish.

A - About 5 inches of frothy white head...ya I'll wait until that settles down a bit... orange/golden brew with some opacity. Pretty intimidating for a single IPA.

S - Lots of floral esters with some lighter fruity notes such as peach, lemon, and apple. The hop presence is definitely there, but in a distinct way... there isn't a lot of bitterness, but the hops utilized are more citrusy and floral.

T - Now that there's about 2 inches of head left... very citrusy. There is definitely hop bitterness, but again it isn't overwhelming. The lighter fruits that I mentioned are even more dominant here. Either the hops used in this beer aren't intended to give off an overly bitter flavor or the malts balance the bitterness out... not sure of the answer. Very tasty though.

M - The lemon zest lasts the longest for me. Definitely a medium-bodied beer that does a fantastic job of hiding the alcohol.

O - This beer definitely has the DFH signature "funk" about it, but it's not what you would expect (a hybrid of 60 & 90 minute). By far my favorite of their IPA/DIPA series (120 minute not included...I still don't believe that beer is a DIPA...).
