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.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a cloudy texture. There was a huge, creamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A hoppy aroma, with a sugary element thrown in as well. A nice smell.

T: A good amount of hops (not too much), some malt, citrus, caramel, and the advertised maple syrup. Slightly milder flavor than other IPAs, but this isn't a bad thing.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: I'm not going to say this is my favorite Dogfish Head IPA, but it is drinkable well made.

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

Appearance: It has a nice cloudy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down very slowly and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of citrus and grapefruit along with earthy/piney notes, caramel and maple syrup.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a nice tropical fruit character to it with some piney and earthy notes as well, maple syrup sweetness with some light caramel, bready malts and slight alcohol coming through as it warms. Moderate lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: It has a high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas.

This is cloudy with hops and bits suspended in a darker orange amber fluid. Prodigious head and tons of lacing. Covering lasts and is reinvigorated with each sip. Pretty active carbonation. Smell is full of tropical fruitiness and hops. A maple undercurrent flows through and carries with it the bits of malt, bread, and faint alcohol that get me going. Taste has an intense complexity. A mild biscuit malt front that is not huge but at the same time big enough to balance the huge amount of hops in this beer. Quite a feat as the carmel and crystal malt flavors come out nicely. The hops are superb. Tropical fruitiness, (mangos, pineapples guava) from the yeast and malt serve up a platform that showcases the dry hopping and wonderful primary hops. They have the lovely effect of being pronounced and balanced at the same time. There is a bit of melon juiciness. The maple gives a sophisticated kind of smokey sweetness. Finish is dry and somewhat long with lots of hops, oil, resin, and tropical grapefruit. A light biscuit and toasted bread linger. Feel is superb with a crispness that is wrapped in a velvety carbonation. A truly wonderful beer overall as it is delightfully drinkable and intensely flavored with a complex array of IPA staples. I'm getting more to enjoy now and cellar for a year or two as the bottle conditioning allows for that.

This is a really good beer, no doubt about it, but not sure why all the initial massive hype. I am writing this rating as I am drinking a freshly opened 750ml refrigerator-chilled bottle.

It is a really nice tasting IPA and I guess the maple syrup, although pretty much completely undetectable in smell and taste, smooths out the sharpness and bitterness of the IPA. I kinda like a good sharp and bitter IPA, and I honestly think a straight 90min might be a little better than this one. Anyway, it is a nice smooth and all around good tasting IPA that deserves a nice rating. Definitely worth picking up a bottle if you see it at the local store, but no need to go out of your way to great lengths to get a bottle.

A: Honey golden brown with a massive foamy big white 3 finger head (despite my trying to limit the bubbles!!)
S/T: Gassy, straw notes; clean and fresh smell, cannot smell or taste any maple syrup. Has the initial taste of a normal hoppy strong IPA, butt hen smooths out nicely to a clean finish.
M: Creamy and smooth, rolls around a lot easier that the roughness and somewhat harshness of a normal IPA
O: A really nice example of good smooth and very drinkable IPA from dogfish head.
