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.

Johnny Cask 75 Minute IPA (with maple, or so I was told) on cask at DFH Brewing and Eats in Rehoboth Beach.

Amazing retention, white head with good lace. Light brown body.

Hoppy nose, a bit one dimensional, but it's an IPA, so what do I know?

Hops in the taste, but mellowed. Maybe maple... but maybe not.

Quite smooth and drinkable.

Not worth the hype, but then I'm not an IPA person, so I pose again, what do I know?

served from the cask in a nonic pint glass at the brewpub in Rehoboth Beach.

dark amber copper in color, with thin white head of tiny fine bubbles. aroma is sweet - malt and orange citrus. taste is very well balanced between the malt and hops. extremely smooth body and soft carbonation typical of the cask treatment. very tasty.

Hand-pumped into a pint glass for $5.50. Sampled 11/23/10.

A: The billowing 3 finger head is extremely slow to deflate. Off-white in color, foamy, airy and bubbly from the hand pump serving. Retention is excellent. The body displays a murky amber color, with a gradient from pale yellow to pale brown. Transparency is low. Lacing is thick and soapy looking, and clings to the top of the glass only - no matter how much beer remains - then slides back down slowly.

S: One sniff and supreme freshness is evident. If this beer wasn't brewed just days ago, I'd be extremely surprised. The flavor is somehow quite UNlike both 60 and 90, although more closely aligned with 60 if I had to choose. Compared to it's brothers, the hop quality in 75 favors pine, citrus and resin while the malt character is more biscuity. Much to my liking, the nut and caramel component has been dialed back considerably. The nose is a perfect example of why freshness is paramount in IPAs.

T: For whatever reason, the flavor closely resembles the nose, but does not impress me nearly as much. Pretty darn good nonetheless.

M: Ridiculously smooth, very lush texture. The body is medium light, a little grainy, and perhaps even thin or watery when compared to co2 servings.

D: [DRINKABILITY] You could lose an afternoon or two throwing this one back. Top notch drinkability - and I think the cask serving has something to do with it.

not sure if its always like this, but i had it casked with maple syrup at the taproom on the beach. poured a relatively flat looking amber color. smell was sweet and hoppy, more like the 90 minute, but with definite maple sugar notes and some mild woody vibes from the cask conditioning. taste is identical, light hints of maple, nothing overpowering at all. mouthfeel is less flat than the appearance, actually quite lively, with a sticky icky hop body, drinkable though. nice beer, wouldnt have 5 of them

Had on-cask at the DFH brewpub in DE. Poured a very nice amber/orange color with a fairly large white head that receded slowly throughout the session. Moderate/spotty lacing. Aroma of earthy/floral/piney hops, grass and sweet malts. A touch of citrus...not too much fruit/citrus on the nose. Tasted of earthy/floral/piney hops, grass, honey (?), citrus and sweet malts. SMOOTH for an IPA. I think this one cask conditions well!

Medium in mouthfeel with a dry finish. Definitely stays on the palate for awhile, so be mindful of that when sampling a flight.

Overall, a good brew, but I still prefer 60 minute.

Cask at the DFH Brewpub as part of a flight.

Poured a slightly hazy brilliant orange with a dense, creamy ivory head that settles to a pillowy cap, leaving lots of sticky lacing. Nice aromas of sweet caramel malt and pungent pine resin and grapefruit hops. Typical DFH IPA aromas, but very fresh. Getting just a whisper of maple syrup from the bottle conditioning. Taste is...60 Minute meets 90 Minute (duh). Sweet caramel malt, pine and grapefruit hops, and a touch of the signature DFH yeast. Expertly combined the drinkability of 60 with the hops of 90. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with a medium body and solidly crisp carbonation. Just a great beer that combined 2 old favorites, can't wait to see this in bottles!

Going to the DFH Pub for the first time, this one was a must-get and I wasn't disappointed at all... one of the best beers I've ever laid my lips on. The super hoppiness of the 60/90 minute IPA's, but balanced with some nice caramel syrup to give it a great mouthfeel. This beer's flavor is delicious and goes down way too easy, would definitely go back there just for another pint of this!
