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.

Bomber into crispin glass...major head with delicate pour which doesn't bother me in good ipa cause I like to warm it for full flavor. Hazy orangish hop filled. Hop zesty goodness another good job by dogfish get you thinking what this reminds you of. I smell Gordon bierch marzen malt back bone with crazy hops to follow. Tastes of hops and malts and maple syrup that will have your tongue going for all the sugary aftertaste! Med/high Carb that the hops entertain your tongue . Overall my favorite of ipas from dogfish. I would love to try on tap and ran out bought up remaining 4 from local bottle shop at $12 a 22!! If was available would drink like 2 hearted or stone when desiring good ipa!! Really good taste great drinkability and German malt or something foreign catches my tastebuds that really balances it!!

A - The Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA pours into a chalice a clear gold, with a gigantic off-white head.

S - ...wonderful fresh hop aroma; citrus with a hint of pine.

T - This review is going to be biased because I'm a dry-hop head. The hops dominate, more so than in the 90-minute Dogfish offering, imo. The taste rotates between bitter notes and hints of sweetness; malts instrumental in giving this beer its balance.

M - Marvelous. The body is akin to a "bigger" beer. But, that's okay with me.

O - Terrific brew. Hop heads will love it. Not as strong a dry-hop experience as a SN Torpedo, but reminiscent. It's more balanced than a Torpedo. Simply delicious.

Whoa...it's a gusher! A good 3 inch foam takes over more of my glass than beer.
The aroma is nice. Hops are there, but not overly so. It smells bready and leafy.
The taste is interesting. Although I am admittedly having trouble finding the maple syrup. Maybe it'll come through more as it warms? There is a thickish mouthfeel that I am enjoying. The hop bitterness is well balanced.
Hmmm...if no one told me that it had maple syrup, I never would have guessed it.
But overall, a quality IPA that won't knock your socks off but is a nice offering that I would like to revisit on tap.

750ml Bottle dated 2012D
Thanks Rich!

A - Pours a murky darker orange with a huge creamy head. Amazing retention.

S - Yeasty - Orange, slight alcohol and some carmel malts.

T - A hard to place maltiness, maybe it is from the maple syrup. Oranges, carmel. A unique mix for sure.

D - Good carbonation and average body.

O - E. Coast style for sure. A unique and sold brew. Malt forward and sweet.

750ml bottle poured into a snifter

A- a cloudy orange/gold with 3 fingers of dense egg-shell head. Great lacing.

S- very 60 minute-ish on the smell. Grapefruit, some caramel malts, and DFH yeast. You really need to sniff a few times to get the maple syrup.

T- up front is the 60 minute characteristics, with a grapefruity hop bite. The 90 minute comes in half way with a solid malt bill of caramel and biscuits, and the hops become just a touch piney and resinous. A dry finish, but the maple syrup is most apparent on the finish, as it really balances the big dry bitter finish.

M- Lively carbonation on this one, medium bodied, and I could use just a bit more of a slick feel, but overall good.

O- A really interesting beer, especially if you've had enough of 60 minute and 90 minute separately, as you can really pull out what each brew brings to this party. I'll certainly have this again.

2012 Batch. Poured into a tulip.

Appearane. Slightly cloudy orange-gold in color. Pours with a huge head, which is kind of annoying, as it fills more than half of the glass. The head, however, is a gorgeous bone white dense foam.

Smell. Lots of grapefruit with some floral aromatics. Definitely some sweetness competing with the hops in this one.

Taste. Starts out with some bitter grapefruit, that is slightly resinous. Some of that maple sweetness comes through before a return to a bitter and thin piney hop. This transitions to a more fruity character that verges on tangerine. The finish is moderately biter and semi-dry.

Mouthfeel. Surprisingly dry throughout, compared to 90 minute. The mouthfeel is not as creamy as the bottle leads on for me. At times it is even a bit prickly.

An interesting derivation of the 60 and 90 minute ipas. The addition of the maple syrup is a welcome on, as it combines nicely with the dominant grapefruit flavors in the beer. The smell has to be the best part though; the citrus that it presents is quite powerful... in a good way.

4.03/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Very white and creamy head with a long retention. This beer seems quite well carbonated, and continues to bubble well after pouring. Its color is a golden amber with an ever so slight pink hue. Its a pretty beer.

Smell: Very hoppy with slight sweet linger at the end which suggests the maple syrup taste.

Taste: A pleasant cross between the 90 minute and the 60 minute, this IPA definitely delivers the hoppy bitter bite but follows with a fascinating and lingering sweet feel on the part of the tongue that curves down your throat. The bitters stay sharp on the tip of the tongue but a slightly caramelized and chewy feel can be felt as well. A fascinating IPA that fits the style well, yet touches the outer limits of the style as well with its sweet finish.

Mouthfeel: I found the mouthfeel to be the most fascinating part about this beer. It is extremely velvety, and I would go as far as to say almost buttery on the tongue. It sits light but you can feel the maple syrup within it and the gelling chewiness of it. Carbonation provides an excellent crisp drink while leaving plenty of room for the sweet lingering after taste. This is a light and smooth yet chewy beer.

Overall: I highly enjoyed this beer. Great combination of two great beers, and great extra twist with the maple syrup. The mouthfeel is excellent, and the mix of bitter hops and the slight aftershock of maple syrup is deliciously palatable. I was expecting more of a maple syrup feel from the beer, but now that I’ve tasted it I’m glad they didn’t over sweeten it. Good beer.

750ml bottle - $7.99 at Total Wine & More in Atlanta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pour gently. No, gentler than that. I'm telling you, you need to--great, that's just great -- hazed, burnished gold body with a tall, long-lasting head stand of off-white foam.

Smell: Slices and slivers off fresh mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and sweet oranges atop sensibly-toasted biscuits marked by notes of resins, grasses, florals, and a little bit of maple.

Taste: Sweet touches of caramel and even maple paired with toasted bread, toasted biscuits. It's a brief malty meet-and-greet, you know, a few handshakes, hellos, then, it's off to the tropical, vibrantly fruity hops cut with some floral, resinous tones. Slight grassiness. Medium-plus bitterness. Slight hint of the alcohol. Small revival of the initial sweetness before the fruity, bittersweet finish that's just nice and sudsy from the carbonation.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Very slight viscous oiliness to the mouthfeel. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: I rather enjoyed myself. Delightful array of hop flavors smoothed with that little hint of maple and the vigorous carbonation is very effective at keeping things moving along nicely.

On cask at their Rehobeth Beach brewpub.

A-hazy golden orange color with a fluffy white head and good amount of lacing. Lively.

S-fruity and hoppy, mild aroma for a 7.5. I do not pick up the maple on its own.

T-a nice blend of semi-sweet malt start and a dry,citrus hop finish. Tasty.

M-silky smooth and full bodied. No alcohol burn.

O- an all-around solid offering of taste and body. I was lucky to get it on cask. I have a bottle as well that I hope lives up to this.
