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.

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!

Pours a hazy, burnt orange with a one-finger bright white head. Good lacing and retention. Complex aroma. Woodsy, toasted bread, orange and citrus notes as it warms. Big 60 minute toasted bread notes to start the flavor. Woodsy notes as well. Finishes with sweet notes. Sweet bread, a bit of sweetness from the maple syrup. Thick, smooth mouthfeel, attributed to the syrup, but still light at the same time.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter. Pours a nice medium amber with a very nice white head. Smells of flowery hops and a little hint of maple, a very nice combination. Tastes of slight maple with a lighter roasted malt, and lots of hops to give it a great bite. This medium bodied beer goes down smooth with its perfect level of carbonation. Overall, an outstanding beer, worthy of the hype and another wonderful offering from Dogfish Head.

Pours a hazy darker amber with billowing, dense white head. Rings of lace down the glass. Smell: toasted grain, caramel, earthy, slightly minty, with some orange citrus. Taste: toast, tangerine, apricot, earthy with herbal notes. Medium+ bodied with a luxurious, creamy feel. Glad to have tried, but doesn’t quite impress. Bottled 2012 C.

Poured into a crystal mug, the beer has a almost clear deep golden color. The enormous head is a creamy beige and sticks around for a long time. Good lacing as well.
The smell announces citrus and pine hops and a malty backbone.
Tasting the brew, the citrus and pineapple flavors build the front. In the middle the malt as well as the maple syrup make their presence noticeable. The finish is composed of a combination of the more bitter piney hops, and some of the syrup qualities. Quite interesting mouthfeel.
Overall a good beer! Just like expected from Dogfish!

A 750 ml bottle from Dog and Bull in Croydon, poured into a Duvel tulip. This appeared as a clear copper with a large white head. This settled to a coating but left ample lacing. The nose was pine, citrus (especially lemon and orange) and some maple syrup. Taste was a nice interplay of hops and sweetness with emphasis on notes of citrus, some breadiness and the maple syrup. Body was medium, creamy and with a healthy carbonation. This is NOT a hop bomb, but a pleasant and remarkably well-balanced IPA, and it is more than just a combination of 60 and 90- minute. I like both but might like this even better than either. If I can get any more, I am eager to try this again SOON!

A- Pours a mostly clear light orange with many many fingers of foamy white head with good lacing.

S- Nice piney hop presence balanced with sweet smell from the maple syrup I assume. Not quite as awesome smelling as the 60 minute imo but very nice and balanced.

T- Mmmm, balance balance balance for sure. Your mouth is like, oooh hops, no wait malt, wait there's the hops again. Oh never mind, sweet caramel malty finish. Me want more!

M- They got this just right, love the feel. Medium body and medium carbonation, just right.

O- Well i'm definitely a fan. I think 60 > 75 > 90 and i'll be trying and reviewing a 120 soon! 75 Minute is greatly balanced and very delicious. A little more nose and i'd put it up there with 60 minute.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 750mL brown bottle into a clear Duvel tulip. No freshness date. Purchased at Wine Warehouse (Charlottesville, VA) for $8.99.

A: Very clear amber with towering, tightly bubbled, 3-4 finger head with good retention and copious lacing.

S: The aroma is fainly earthy-herbal hops with a decided caramel/toffee note. Pretty light for an IPA overall.

T: The flavor really comes off nicely, although I still like 90 Minute IPA better than this one. The herbal, grassy, floral punch of 60 Minute IPA lends a very unique flavor when coupled with the caramel, sweeter dark malt notes of 90 Minute IPA. This is not a typical IPA, with more subtle citrus and floral contributions, but the sweetness of the maltiness seems almost more significant, and maybe this is the maple.

M: A little too dry, and this might be the reason that I like 90 Minute better. The body is firmly medium. The dryness and the sweetness seem incongruous and detract from the feel. The higher-than-needed carbonation also decreases the body and gives it a drier, thinner feel.

O: While I am glad I tried this one, I won't go back and will look for 90 Minute IPA when I need a DFH IPA fix. I am not a fan of 60 Minute IPA at all (too herbal, grassy) so I was glad that I enjoyed this, but I won't go back to this guy in the future. Still, worth a shot as it is very unique.
