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.

I had out of a gravity dispense cask at d.b.a. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It has a rusty color with some head and is slightly opaque. It has a nice hoppy scent wit ha fruity mix.

It has a very smooth hoppy taste at first followed by a bit of sourness. It says there's maple mixed in, which probably gives it its strong sweetness. It also says that it's a blend of the 60 and 90 minute IPAs...so there no wonder why I love this beer.

Pours a hazy orange amber. Looks almost rusty.

Aroma is strong citrus and floral hops.

Very strong citrus-fruity sweetness. The hoppiness seems to have mellowed a bit in the cask, but it's still there for sure, and brings a nice little bitterness along. They come together very well.

The mouthfeel sets it apart from most casks I have had. It seems grainy almost chewy in a good way.

I usually have one or glasses from a cask and then move on. I could drink from this all night.

Cask at Rattle-n-Hum in NYC.

Pours a hazy copper color with a large-bubbled off-white head. The head recedes into a thin ring around the glass leaving solid lacing.

Smells of caramel malts with a good deal of breadiness along with hop aromas made up of citrus and tropical fruits.

Tastes good. Pale and slightly caramel malt flavors kick things off and are given substance by light bready flavors. Midway through the sip the hops take over (more so than I was expecting from the smell) and carry through to a solidly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with soft carbonation.

Drinkability is also good. I finished my glass without a problem and could have another.

Overall I'm glad I finally came across this beer, and a cask version nonetheless. Hoppier than one would expect and worth a shot.

Had this at the Dogfish Head Alehouse in Fairfax Virginia. This beer is a mix (a la Black & Tan) of 60 minute & 90 minute IPAs. It is mixed at serving time. I've had both the 60 minute & 90 minute IPAs many times. I was looking forward to this as I thought it would balance out some of the weaknesses of each.

My experience was a bit mixed though. My impression was that I received mostly 60 minute IPA in my pour with not much 90 minute IPA in there.

It poured a dark gold with a little pale cream head. Good carbonation throughout.

Smell was hoppy with just a tinge of malt. To me, this wasn't much different than the 60 minute IPA I had the following day at a different pub. Good solid IPA aroma, but not anything exceptional.

Taste was nice -- more balanced than the 60 minute IPA. There was a hint more malty sweetness and caramel than is found in the 60 minute. Nicely balanced beer.

This was overall, an easy to drink, good but not especially "off-centered".

Had this on cask at the British Beer Company in Walpole, MA

A - This beer is a deep orange color with a small but thick creamy white head that settles in my pint glass quite quickly leaving some sticky and resiny lacing on my glass.

S - There is a strong abundant hop presence with this beer. It includes elements of citrus, maple, freshly baked bread and yeast. The beer has an extreme hop profile but seems to have a balance of malt and yeast on board. Hints of maple syrup are present in the smell.

T - Floral hops and hop resins are present in this beer. Alcohol presence in this beer is moderate. There is a maple syrup component to the taste as well. I can taste some spicy notes and an ever present flavor of yeast in my glass as well. The cask conditioning and warmer serving temperature really accentuates the flavor profile.

M - Smooth, creamy and resiny feel to this beer with a moderate alcohol warming sensation. The finish is crisp but well hopped on my tongue.

D - Very drinkable IPA that really does well with the cask conditioning. The flavors jump right out of the glass with this beer. Very complex but not too overpowering. I could definitely session this beer.

Re-Post as I am told that ALL DFH 75 Minute is the Maple version.

I had this at Deep Ellum this week and was quite intrigued by it.

Came in a pint glass with a thin white head that actually faded rather quickly. The beer was a very clear bright orange amber color. Not much in the way of lacing was left behind.

Aroma was a subtle hop aroma with some typical DFH 90 malt aroma. Not really sure I detected any maple at all. A subtle sweetness.

The flavor was really smooth and very well balanced. The flavor was classic DFH 60/90. There is a smokey/peaty note to their malt and it was clearly here. There was a softness and delicate sweetness that I think was the addition of the maple. It's very subtle. I was with a buddy who had a pint and we both commented on the subtleness of the maple. I think it rounded out the flavor more than anything else. The maple seemed to make an appearance with the hop finish...

Smooth mouth feel with, obviously, very little carbonation.

I found this to be very drinkable and a beer you think you could drink all night. At 7.5% abv it would kick your butt a bit though.

I was very happy to have tried this gem...

I am going to put that this was brewed once as I have no idea. If someone needs to change that, please feel free.

Last time I visited rehoboth Dogfish ran out of 75 minute Johnny Cask within 24 hours and I was unable to try it... Luckily, this past weekend I had 2 pints of this elixir and it was quite amazing.. Pour has an amazing cascading fall in the glass and it is amazing.. almost like when you see nitro stout like guinness fall.. its really incredible and foams into a huge frothy head. Aroma is hoppy and sweet though kind of light. Flavor has an interesting mix between the floral hoppiness of 60 minute with the sweet, sugary backbone of 90 minute. Cream soda-like. Quite interestingly complex. Mouth is silky and velvety.. very smooth and creamy. Amazing. All around it is absolutely delicious and the mouthfeel is exceptional. Could be a bit tough to drink more than one as it feels a bit heavy when sipping. A must try.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

served from a hand pump 8/6/09

Appearance: Foams itself up immediately upon being forced by hand into the glass. The bartender waited a good minute or three for the majority of the head to subside to give the glass a few more pumps. The retention is good and rings of lace are left behind after each sip.

Smell: A perfumed aroma of hops is both citrusy and floral. Plenty of underlying caramel malts.

Taste: Wow. A mix of 60 minute and 90 minute spells W I N N E R to me. Floral and citrus hop flavors include grapefruit, grass, rose and hyacinth. Lots of caramel malt to give the beer a sweetness and backbone. Delicious.

Mouthfeel: A definite strong suit of this beer is the mouthfeel, perhaps because it is from a cask. It is very, very fresh and smooth. Alcohol is available and welcomed along with the distinct sweetness of the malts.

Drinkability: This could be one of the best Dogfish Head beers I've had to date. I'm glad I had the chance to try it, and would always buy it if available.

4/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Poured a beautiful amber color (nearly identical to the DFH Shelter Pale Ale), with about one finger's worth of white foam atop. As the head slowly receded, it left some beautiful lacing behind. A little evidence of carbonation.

S- Hops dominate the nose here... I detect a blend of both low- and high-alpha hops... translating into some restrained citrus notes. There is some slight underlying sweetness and oakiness on the nose as well...

T- Despite the hop-dominated nose, this beer is surprisingly balanced. The slightly citrus hops are met with some nice caramel malt up front. The hop character becomes dominant once again in the finish, which is somewhat dry... unlike some other big IPAs, I don't find the hop character overwhelming at any point in the experience...

M- Slightly creamy and almost a touch gritty with all the unattenuated sugar. Nice firm body with just the right amount of carbonation... the hops also seem to make my gums tingle a bit (seemingly with excitement)!

D- Very drinkable, but I suspect the alcohol would sneak up on you after a couple of these...

NOTES: I'm typically not an IPA fan, but this beer could make me an IPA fan yet!!

On caske at Novare Res DFH night.

Pours a deep golden amber with a small head, basically no lacing. Taste is phenomenal, lots of hop complexities to it, very smooth and thick. Very little carbonation as you'd expect on cask. The extra dry hopping adds a lot to this over their regular 60/90min IPAs.

Overall this is super drinkable and one of DFHs best IPAs, worth seeking out!

Served from the first cask of 75 min IPA in Maine; poured into my Uprising Chalice. Pours a rusty orange color with a slight head of small white bubbles. Aroma is full of subtle hops. It doesn't overpower, but it is still quite strong. The taste is great. Not as hoppy as I thought it would be, but the hops are still there. You can also certainly taste the maple syrup that was added to the cask. As expected, there is low carbonation; also has a light body. This is incredibly drinkable. You could keep ordering these all night long. Very enjoyable. If a cask is tapped in your area, it is worth seeking out.

Another major score, courtesy of Paul Pendyck of the GEN Sutter Inn in Lititz! He has truly spoiled the denizens of Lancaster County with his monthly Cask Night. I love to travel, but PA ranks among the best that the US has to offer.

It came with two thick, foamy fingers of eggnog colored head with fantastic retention. Color was a slightly deeper amber than the 60", but still with a fantastic NE-quality clarity. Nose was floral, piney, more in line with what I like in an IPA. Mouthfeel was slightly fuller than the 60" and more malty at the same time. Actually, it felt like there was a power struggle going on atop my palate betwixt the malt and the hops with neither gaining the upper hand. It was on the finish that the hops became truly assertive. I got a spearmint flavor that lingered. It was not Life Savers or chewing gum prevalent, but it was definitely spearmint. It triggered a memory but I could not quite dredge it up - I used to know which hops strain imparts that flavor, but it simply eluded me. An excellent beer, highly recommended, especially on cask!

This is one of my favorite IPAs. I tasted this a while back and it was unbelievably good. I will skip the look of the beer and focus on the hop to malt to maple syrup ratio. Sweet, floral, spicy, and rounded out by the maple - it is really something! Citrus hops with floral characteristics meet the toasted malts and are enveloped by maple. Need I say more? The maple syrup is from Sam's father's farm in Mass.

I have had the Pliny's and other top rated IPAs and I must say this is right up there!

I know people are quick to say this a combo of 60 and 90 minute and as an avid Dogfish IPA drinker this far from the truth!

This beer is much smoother with a golden color and smooth taste from start to finish! Since fermented in a cask it doesn;t have the harshness that forced carbonation has! Much much smoother!

I had this several times at Rehoboth Brew Pub. I think that people who have left less than stellar reviews haven't had the best batch or the bar didn't handle it properly. Everytime I've had it at the Brewpub it has been stellar!

On-cask at the brewpub. Mmm. Delicious. This is certainly my favorite of DFH's IPA series. And while it's just a mix of the 60 and 90 minute, I don't think it really tastes like either. It lacked the dry biscuit malt of the 60 and had much softer fruitier hops than the 90. The flavor started with a mild earthy note followed by a long-lasting taste of apricot, then lemon rind, and pepper with grapefruit and a vague citrus punch in the background. The aroma was a bit more floral with a hint of that biscuit aroma. Overall it was very tasty and very drinkable. Check this out.

On the new "Johnny Cask" system at DFH Rehoboth on 6/19/09.

A - Clear amber/orange body with a tight, creamy white head that settled into a quarter inch of retention and left plenty of thick, sticky lace around the glass.

S - Bold hop presence boasting perfumy and citrus notes with a subtle waft of alcohol. Malt character is rich, sweet and caramely.

T - Floral and perfumy hops dominate the flavor of this IPA, although some citrus notes emerge as well. Alcohol presence is pretty subtle overall, especially compared to 90min. A hefty caramel malt backbone brings everything together in the finish, and is accompanied with a spicy peppery character.

M - Smooth, creamy texture with very soft mouthfeel overall. Fair amount of alcohol warmth, but not biting or overly hot. Finishes with a huge lingering bitterness on the palate.

D - This IPA combines the drinkability of 60min. with the aggressive hop character of 90min. but minus the latter's alcohol presence. Very nice cask offering from DFH.

A dark yellow with a hint of brown. Not much head but not expect when on cask.
Great hop aromas, maple syrup and a little citrus.
Some fruit esters with a subtle bitterness finished by a great malt presence. What a fantastic balance. Maple syrup once again adds a pleasant sweetness.
Nice body but carbonation was low, due to the cask.It should be noted that this actually contributed to the drinkability.
A great beer I will enjoy next time its available.

had at the Grey Lodge Pub for the Johnny Cask night promo back in March

not much of a head after the initial pour from the firkin...slight haze to it, from the maple syrup...almost looked like iced tea...light amber color

maple syrup dominated the nose...hops are muted but become prevalent as the beer warms....sweet malt....some caramel in there also

when i took my first sip it reminded me a burnt rubber taste...not what i look for in my beers... i'm assuming this was from the maple syrup...this went away as the beer warmed and the hops showed up...sweetness comes in from the malt...citrus and grapefruit are there but not front and center

smoooth going down...if it wasn't for that off smelling burnt rubber taste in the beginning this would be something i could drink all night

becomes more drinkable as the beer warms and that burnt rubber taste fades and the hops step in....not sure how necessary the maple syrup is to this concoction, but i'd like to see if that rubber taste is there or not if the syrup isn't added to the cask...good balance of hops as expected from the 60 Min/90 Min combo

Cask @ Deep Ellum in Boston.

Very full bodied with lower carbonation (as expected). Didn't see the rising carbonation like I usually see in cask ales. Very bubbly and low density head. The aroma was defintely hoppy, with most of the sharp oils coming through giving some bitterness. The flavor had some grapefruit along with some slightly caramel flavors that I don't recall tasting with the on-tap version at the DFH Alehouse. I even tasted some maple, and the menu stated some maple syrup was added.

I think I preferred the on-tap version. It could have been toward the end of the cask though.

day two at NERAX 2009. this was actually tapped at the start of the night, so people here at NERAX were actually getting a head start before all the others at the "simul-cask" on thursday, march 19. kicked within an hour or so. muhahaha

crystal clear amber with light straw tones. creamy, sudsy head fades to wisps and sudsy ring. micro-splotches of lace here and there.

aroma: light, but piney, resinous hops with touch of citrus rind. sweet caramel and esters (apple and grapefruit)

taste: fruity citrus sweetness and caramel with quick move to hoppy pine and citrus, but still fruity. trace of maple character within the sweetness. moderate yet crisp, balanced bitterness.

smooth, light syrup feel, with touch of resins in the finish. light but tight carbonation.

Had on tap at the Falls Church Alehouse.

A: Beautiful bright copper color with a good head and plenty of lacing as it goes down.

S: Lots of hops. Can definitely tell this is the 60/90 blend, as I'm getting quite a bit of each. Lots of the 60-type hops in addition to the solid malt sweetness of the 90.

T: Citrus hops take the front stage, but the sweet maltiness is definitely there, and doesn't let the hops get too overpowering.

M: Light-to-medium body with a good amount of carbonation. Not much alcohol to be tasted.

D: Incredible--much, much better than either two of its component parts. I'll be blending quite a few of these at home for myself in the future.

On tap at Dogfish Head Brewings at Eats in Rehobeth. Blended from the tap (3/4 60 Minute, 1/4 90 Minute).

A: Beautiful golden, copper when lifted to the light, color. Head was gone when the beer arrived at my table. Left decent lacing on the glass.

S: Pine with a fresh citrus scent, maybe lemon. Allergies were acting up. Second pint ordered I picked up a hint of grapefruit as well.

T: Pine up front being taken over by fresh lemon and grapefruit. There is a nice spicy character early on as well. A hint of caramel on the end, just enough to balance the bitter bite up front. The freshness of this beer is obvious, and amazing. This is the best of both worlds! (60 & 90) During my second pint I also picked up a bit of grapefruit.

M: Good carbonation, light bodied, and there is a minimal stickiness/oiliness from the hops.

D: This is, hands down, one of my favorite I.P.A.'s.

Had this on tap at the Dogfish Head Alehouse in Falls Church, VA.

Appearance: Pours a clear, orangey-copper color with tons of carbonation running throughout and a short, tight white head that fades to a skim and leaves behind spotty, sticky lacing.

Smell: Really mild aroma full of bright, sticky, piney hops. Slight toasted malts come through lightly.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Delicious grassy and piney hops with a slight sweet maltiness. The balance between the hops and malts is very well done, both refreshing and satisfying. The feel is full but not thick thanks to high carbonation, and the aftertaste leaves a slight sticky film throughout the palate.

Drinkability: Very high - could definitely have a few of these in an evening without feeling overpowered.
