Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ManekiNeko on 02-06-2004

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.

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

Pours a fizzy fluffy 1.5 finger head that fades semi slowly with nice lacing, hazy nectar orange color.

Nose fresh spicy light citrus hops, light resin, light sweet malt, plenty of maple, syrupy candy like.

Taste starts with candy, syrupy, plenty of maple, hint of caramel toasty malt, light bready, semi sweet. Then hops, decent bitterness but not a lot, light citrus candy hops, hint spicy, no real resinous this time. Finish is still semi sweet but semi dry and a bit sticky syrupy, hint of bitter hops, hint of citrus candy.

Mouth is med to a bit fuller bodied, good carb, smooth and rich feeling.

Overall interesting, nice his at first but then they seem to disappear, nice addition of the maple that doesn't get too sweet either, a big fill beer thats not too boozy. I like the original Johnny Cask version much better.

Bottle poured into tulip glass

Pours a darkish gold color with quite a bit of carbonation. Head is foamy and white.

Smell is grapefruity with a hint of sweetness.

Taste starts as a typical hoppy citrus IPA but finishes with the maple sweetness.

Finish is almost foamy and is slightly creamy.

A very intersting IPA. Not your typical everyday drinker but one to seek out.

Bottle pour sampled at mrbubbler's tasting.

Pours a murky honey orange with an off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest. Taste is pretty much the same with a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good IPA but nothing all that special.

Enjoyed in a pint glass

A: Pours a very nice golden honey brown that is nicely hazed and has an extremely aggressive pure white head that lingers for an extremely long time and is very fluffy, leaves a nice amount of lacing on the glass
S: The scent is of fresh hops which, to me, is reminiscent of the sixty minute, also has a very slight depth at the end
T: The taste is quite nice with citrus hops up front and then on the tail end kicks in the nice maple syrup flavor, slightly smokey lingers on the palate, slight alcohol note hits in the middle before being backed out by the maple
M: The mouthfeel is nice, average carbonation up front, very thin on the palate, lingering dryness is pretty apparent
O: Overall its a nice, drinkable ipa, unique use of the maple is nice but makes it a bit heavier than I had wanted

A capped 750 mL bottle of the 2012 batch from inlimbo77; thanks! Split into tulips.

Pours a tarnished gold color and develops a massive five-finger-wide head. Head is eggshell white, consists of dense, microscopic bubbles, and appears from above like a snow-covered winter landscape; I’m pretty sure you could mold the head into a snowman if you tried. Gobs of sticky lacing adorn the glass. Really gorgeous looking, but the simple fact there is so much damn head pulls it back down from 5-star potential.

The aroma is of bitter grapefruit and lemon citrus, sweet malts including subtle maple, biscuity notes, and some earthen hops. Smells great!

It tastes of earthen hops, some grapefruit and lemon, sweet maple, caramel malt, light wheat and straw, and some faint, dry spice (cardamom?). The maple seems well integrated and it plays nicely with the more traditional flavors, going so far as to lend a subtle wooden flavor to the finish.

Mouthfeel is quite dry, perhaps from the apparent carbonation surplus, and a touch prickly on the back of the throat. Finishes clean, however, and is relatively easy-drinking.

Overall, a great take on an IPA. I really enjoyed the addition of the syrup; it wasn’t overdone to the point of lending an overly sugary taste or feel, but is certainly present in ample quantities to be recognizable in it’s own right. Well done!

Poured from bottle into pint glasses.

Appearance: Orange with huge billowing white head. Had to serve into three glasses. Not that much lacing but decent head retention.

Smell: Honey. Sweetness. Citrus and floral hops. Spices.

Taste: Sweet throughout the sip. Hops. Sweet honey and some syrup. Spices. Bitter finish that doesn't linger that much.

Mouthfeel: Smooth. Refreshing. Light to medium bodied but more on the light side. Satisfactory amount of carbonation but not much.

Overall: Decent IPA. On the verge of being too sweet like the 90 Minute IPA, but it's still a well made beer. Complex with great combination of flavors. Typical Dogfish Head.

Bomber into crispin glass...major head with delicate pour which doesn't bother me in good ipa cause I like to warm it for full flavor. Hazy orangish hop filled. Hop zesty goodness another good job by dogfish get you thinking what this reminds you of. I smell Gordon bierch marzen malt back bone with crazy hops to follow. Tastes of hops and malts and maple syrup that will have your tongue going for all the sugary aftertaste! Med/high Carb that the hops entertain your tongue . Overall my favorite of ipas from dogfish. I would love to try on tap and ran out bought up remaining 4 from local bottle shop at $12 a 22!! If was available would drink like 2 hearted or stone when desiring good ipa!! Really good taste great drinkability and German malt or something foreign catches my tastebuds that really balances it!!

A - The Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA pours into a chalice a clear gold, with a gigantic off-white head.

S - ...wonderful fresh hop aroma; citrus with a hint of pine.

T - This review is going to be biased because I'm a dry-hop head. The hops dominate, more so than in the 90-minute Dogfish offering, imo. The taste rotates between bitter notes and hints of sweetness; malts instrumental in giving this beer its balance.

M - Marvelous. The body is akin to a "bigger" beer. But, that's okay with me.

O - Terrific brew. Hop heads will love it. Not as strong a dry-hop experience as a SN Torpedo, but reminiscent. It's more balanced than a Torpedo. Simply delicious.
