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.

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.

4.5/5  rDev +9%

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.

Thanks goes out to Hojaminbag for this brew.

Bottled In: 2012A 19:52

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.

4/5  rDev -3.1%

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.

Enjoyed this bomber bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a copper hue with a hue 4-finger, white, frothy, head that slowly dissipates into a wispy lace – leaving a gorgeous trail all the way down the glass.

S: Strong hoppy aroma with hints of citrus and pine in the background.

T: Hoppy and crisp bitter flavor with a nice alcoholic bite. Slightly citrus background with a little but of pine which was similar to the smell.

M: Very strong and boozy but masked well by the hops. Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Wow – I think this the best IPA by Dogfish head. 120 is too over the top, 90 is very good, and 60 is pretty good. But 75 has the perfect balance of alcohol and hops!

It pours a nice, deep gold color with a dense, creamy, off-white head. It smells nice and hoppy, but slightly subdued underneath all that foam. The flavor has great pine resin, and tropical fruit notes. Outstanding flavor! Medium bodied with low carbonation and a lingering, smooth but bitter finish.

A- Hazy light copper/orange pour with a booming three plus finger soapy egg shell head. Lacing is remarkable.

S- Bright pine, citrus and sweet malts. Not getting the maple in the aroma but this is much more balanced than the 60 and the 90 minute.

T- Holy hops. Nice citrus and wonderful pine flavors. The maple doesn't really pop, more for just sweetening and balancing the beer.
Lingering bitter finish.

M- Medium bodied, good carbonation.

O- This really is the best of both worlds. I really prefer this over 90 and as much as fresh 60 minute. The maple syrup really helps and adds a wonderful depth to this beer.

A: Pours a very cloudy golden body with a thick white head that slowly fades. The head is very thick, even after it fades.

S: Wow there is a lot of smells coming out of this beer. There is a lot of spice and hops. Decent, but I feel there just is a little too much going on.

T: There is ALOT of flavor in this beer. It has a very nice malt and strong hop flavor at first and the beer evolves to a spices and even pineapple flavor. As the beer lingers even long, I start to pick up a sweet malt flavor again.

M: The beer is actually VERY smooth for a high alcohol IPA. It has that "full" feeling in my mouth, but that really adds to the beer. All around amazing.

O: This is just another great beer from DFH and I dont know many beers like it. Well done!
