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.

Pours a four finger white head that stays leaving a good lace. hazy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Grapefruit hop nose and flavor is grapefruit hops that are mellowed by the maple syrup. Higher ABV is hidden. Light bitter aftertaste. $8.59 for a 750ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy slightly off-white head. The head fades down slowly leaving behind some nice lace.

S - Aroma is a mix of strong citrus and grapefruit hops with some pine, maple syrup, sweet caramel malts, and a bit of bready malt.

T - Starts off with some citrus, orange, and grapefruit hops with some bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some pine hoos come through with some more bitterness and some maple syrup. The finish is a mix of pine and grapefruit hops and bitterness with some sweet malts and some maple syrup sweetness.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish.

D - Very drinkable. Excellent balance of malt and hop flavor with a good amount of bitterness and a great smoothness created by the maple syrup.

750 ml bottled in 2012
A - frisky aggressively bubbly golden amber with a mountainous head that looks and feels too much like whipped cream.
S - slightly piney and a tad bit sweet but not the kick I expected. Bready but noy strong on the yeast.
T/M/D - not a hop bomb but it is there and is not to be ignored. Sweetness mellows out the middle but the finish brings back the hops and adds a slight alcohol tingle. Carbonation is high and clearly visible. A smooth drinker that goes down easy after the foam settles.
Overall - not as hoppy or sweet(maple syrup) as I expected or would have liked but I can see it growing on you after you get over the price.
Warming brings out the resinous hoppy flavor/feel that I'd expect from an IPA but it's not DIPA quality nor does it claim to be.
Pretty much a sweetened, carbonated, diluted, smoothed out 90 minute.

Pleasing IPA with a slighty coarse bitter edge.

Presentation: 750 ml brown custom DFH capped bottle. Iconic image of the man in black breaking the cask, albeit with a grouchesque disguise of fake nose/glasses/moustache. Was this because of a dispute about the use of his image? Small side note noting main characteristics and intent. Shows 7.5% Alc. by Vol. Served in tulip glass.

A - Clear pale amber pour. Generous frothy head with nice surface memory and retention, alongside good lacing.

S - Soft resinous nose with a biscuity malt dash to it. Slight fruit in the distance.

T - Citrus and pine, the bitterness is a bit coarse and without much range, slight sweet note over the biscuity malt.

M - Medium body and carbonation, slight pushy bitterness with a nice sense.

O - Good edge in the final flow but this sense of balance while pleasing is really not for me.

Notes: It is all kinds of decent and more… But it did not quite do it for me. The same happens with 60 to me I confess, and that lingering edge might be part of the reason why...

25 oz capped bottle, “filled in” code not legible.
Poured into a British Imp Nonic

Pours a large, frothy, two finger, white colored head, with very good longevity and excellent, sticky, lace which clings to the glass.
Medium yellow amber. A beautiful Ale.

The aroma starts off with distinct hops, dry hopping is quite noticeable, floral, spicy, with a hint of pine and resin, very refined but somewhat lacking in intensity for this style. This is followed by a medium distinct, rich malt, nice, balanced, faintly toasty but again seems muted.

Nice crisp entry on the palate of medium distinct bitter hops, dry hopped, and some spice and resin. The malt is medium distinct, refined, toasty with a good ale yeast presence. This ale has a medium full body, with a fine carbonation and a off dry sweetness. Balanced all around.

The finish is long, nice bitter hops and toasty malt. Some lingering hop oils.

This is a very good ale, but I must admit I am underwhelmed by the overall intensity. There is no way this is between the 60 and 90 minute IPA’s as both of them have more going on IMO. However I do not know the filled in date so maybe this was old?
That being said this Ale is very refreshing to drink with that bottle conditioned mouth feel and taste despite the cap closure. A session beer for me.
Worth a test drive.

Poured into a shaker pint: Nice medium-gold body, clean,under 3 fingers' eggshell, cushiony, soft head. Good clarity with light gold highlights.

Light grapefruit & orange hop notes in the smell, with a slightly toasty, even cake-like malt in the background.

Taste: Fairly predictable citric & tea flavors up front that lead into a nicely nutty, bready malt. Not sure if the maple syrup in the conditioning imparts that nutty flavor, but it's a really enjoyable twist. Some citrus rind bitterness in the aftertaste with that nutty, slightly "dark" molasses-like flavor, also almost like coffee. Just before the fnish gets a nice fruity boost. A lot going on here that I like picking apart.

Nice kick in the beginning of the mouthfeel, medium-bodied, pretty smooth with another kick int eh finish. A little on the heavy side for the style, but pleasant.

Wasn't sure what to expect with this, good but fairly standard IPA with a really interesting twist.

Yellow and orange pour, every time I go to throw some into the imperial pint glass, it foams up way too high. At least its carbonated, better to have too much than too little. Aroma, pretty grassy, cascades, not picking up much in the way of maple on this.

Taste, wow, yeah, the grassiest ipa I think I've ever had. Good flavor, but I dunno if its $9 a bottle type of flavor. Amazingly normal for a dfh brew, but really lacking on maple flavor, its really dominated by a slightly above average amount of cascade hops.

Mouthfeel is slightly sweet, but it seems to be more from the malt additions moreso than any adjunct. An enjoyable enough beer, but not really at the price point. Make it a 6 pack for this price, and its a beer I would drink again.
