Pours a bright, clear golden orange color with a big frothy head that retains its peaks and ridges for quite some time.
Smells of rich citrus such as lemon zest, grassy, herbal, mild esters, and light malts. The dry hopping wins here.
Wow... taste is completely different from the smell. I didnt know what to expect but I am pleasantly surprised. Lots of malt. Faint notes of cocoa, caramel, and a mild bitter finish.
Light to medium bodied, thinner than I expected, but nice carbonation to tingle the tongue.
Tasty treat and a bit different from its 60, 90, and 120 cousins. There is distinct malt characters that really shine in this beer.

*Huge* thick white foamy head. The cleanliness of the white head is almost eerie... Brew is brilliantly clear orange with some browns and yellows. One of the best looking brews I've ever seen.
Whoa. I can smell this from two feet away!!! Very maple. Smells very well hopped, nice orange, pineapple, lemon, and pine scents. No off scents. A perfect scent.
Surprisingly light on the tongue! Very airy and wet. Citrus is not dominate like I had assumed it would be. Maple is also light and well placed. Perfect light carbonation, matches the style amazingly. There's a funky bitterness on the back end of the aftertaste, but it doesn't take too much away. Lots of vanilla too. I would like to be a little more flavor prominence, but over all very nice.
I'm not a huge DFH fan, but this brew puts them back on my map. I hope they continue to roll out brews like this. 75-minute is one of the best, most enjoyable brews I've had in sometime. Highly recommended for a "lighter" IPA.

Dogfish Head : 75 Minute IPA
Pours a orangeish copper, slightly yellowish, well retaining head. Lots of soapy lacework is left behind. Aroma of floral cascade hops, some sweetness, but mostly hops. In the mouthfeel, bright citrus hops and an almost nutty, sugary malt body that does a good job to balance. Little alcohol, mostly pine and citrus hops, somewhere in between the 60 and 90 minutes, Go Figure! Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth and prickly. Overall, a very fine beverage and another winner from the minute line of Dogfish Head.

A blend of 60 and 90, bottle conditioned with maple syrup and “dry-hopped out the bejeezus boards.” Poured into a tulip.
Cloudy apricot in hue. The pour is hyperactive, exploding with the creamiest, merengue-like head of yellow-white that gets about three inches tall and sets up camp. When it finally disappears, frothy lace coats the glass.
The nose is packed with citrus resins. Orange peel and a little grass, met with honey and crackers.
75 Minute tastes pretty much as you would expect —full of the biting hops of 60 Minute, tempered by the big maltiness of 90. A hint of grapefruit peel, resiny spice. Honey and burnt sugar malts provide the sweetness. A hint of maple can be picked up in the background and emerges more as the beer warms.
Moderate carbonation massages the tongue and breaks the brew into a fair amount of fizz. Silky, soft medium body. It’s not a clean break from the palate — both bitterness and flavor grip the tongue for a while after the swallow. Alcohol is nicely absent.
I like 75 Minute more than 60, but less than 90. It has a nice bit of added complexity over the 60, but’s missing the big East Coast maltiness prevalent in 90.

750mL, no bottling date to be found, though I'm assuming sometime in January 2012.
Aroma is full of spicy hops, with a hint of grapefruit.
Flavor is bitter and dry, with a magnificent mouthfeel-- they really knocked it out of the park in this department. High carbonation is creamy and lush, with a nice medium body. Hop flavor is nice, with lots of woody, earthy hops and a touch of citrus rind. English ale yeast character is apparent, with some biscuity-malty notes.
This is a nice, drinkable beer with an amazing mouthfeel. Highly hoppy, but also balanced. I would drink this any day over 90min or 60min.

750ml bottle poured into a Dogfish Head signature glass.
A - Pours a bright orangey amber color with good clarity. a high 4 fingers of foam practically erupts off the surface of the beer as it is gently poured into the glass. Head is dense, tightly bubbled and whipped creamy in texture. Huge sheets of cream colored lacing left on the glass. This is another beer that requires a multi-stage pour to remotely fill the glass.
S - Huge aroma of fresh citrusy hops is easily noticeable as soon as the bottle is opened. Grapefruity, lemony, and some fresh cut grassiness. Caramelly sweetness, sugary, faint maple-y hints in the background. Smells really fresh.
T - Sugary sweet on first sip. Good amount of toasty and roasty malt...I think I even get a bit of a coffe-ish bitterness. Sweetness fades and then transforms itself into a firm hop bitterness. Finishes full of hoppy flavors - mostly the citrus and grassiness found in the aroma. Aftertaste is earthy with some sweetness that lingers in a slightly out of place way which I find distracting.
M - Medium bodied beer with a creamy carbonation that shows some life, but really doesn't create even the slightest tingle on the tongue. Sweetness on the finish is almost cloying and overpowering to me.
O - Overall, an interesting IPA. Definitely has a lot of the Dogfish Head "house flavors" to it, but somehow misses the mark a bit for me. The smell and appearance are both quite good to excellent, setting high expectations but the flavor let me down a bit. The balance towards sweet was a bit off to my palate.

750 mL bottle poured into a pint glass.
Appearance - The bottle overflows two pint glasses, so I pour some overflow into a snifter. I'm reviewing from the pint, though. Pours a clear deep orange with a previously-stated giant head. Good retention and sticky, but odd looking lacing.
Smell - Hops are the dominant flavor, but not overwhelming the aroma the way I'd like. Tough to even distinguish the hop flavors. Pine, citrus, floral all at once, so it's just consolidated hop flavor. Sweet aroma behind it.
Taste - Hoppy flavor, no surprise, but again it's indistinct hops. Strong malt, but not sweet like 90. Definitely stronger than 60, with just a touch of caramel. The finish is distinctly maple with some bitterness. The maple really redeems the beer.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Lower carbonation for an IPA. The maple finish tempers the bitterness and keeps it interesting.
Overall - It's good. It's not great. The maple is the most interesting part, because the hop profile is boring.

A: Poured a cloudy golden color with burnt orange hues. The head was huge, I mean massive. Even with a gentle pour the thing exploded out of the glass. Stuck to everything and left the glass coated from top to bottom.
S: Lemon and grassy hops jump out. There is a nice herbal quality to the entire nose. Slight bit of grapefruit in the back. Nice amounts of baked bread or white biscuit. Kind of peppery at times.
T: Punch of lemon upfront then lots of herbal hops and bit of pepper. The middle is very grassy. At the base of each swig is a white dinner roll with some nutty sweetness in the end. The more I drink this the more the lemon turns to pure grapefruit and persists with the grassy hops.
M: Very buttery, soft and kind of a light feel. Not fizzy as expected. It has some weight and feels whole but is on the thin side. Not syrupy. Unique.
O: Very enjoyable and I could drink several in a row. A nice fragrant and thoroughly enjoyable brew. This might just be better than the sum of its parts. Seems like the perfect pint to toss back in the sun.

Poured into a DFH glass a very nice golden dark orange color, nice carbonation, with a very nice two-finger thick/creamy white head, with lots of very nice thick sticky lacing left behind. The nose is a nice blend of malts/hops, and some citrus thrown in. The taste is slightly sweet, with some bitterness from the hops, nice little touch of citrus. Medium body. A nice brew, but I was expecting more, not quite in the same league as a 90 or even a 60 Min. IPA. Thanks Ben for the opportunity.

A: Pours a hazy golden amber color with a solid three-fingered sea-foam that hangs around for a while then starts dissipating a little more quickly.
S: I'm picking up a light straw scent with a bit of earthy hops and some citrus notes.
T: A very light amount of maple notes are present along with the 60- and 90-minute notes of light citrus, pine and hops.
M: A bit of hoppy bitterness in a brew that feels a little thicker than an IPA usually does, interesting in a good way. Medium-light amount of carbonation.
O: Overall, quite good, an interesting blend of the 60- and 90-Minute IPAs, quite delicious and worth having again.
