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.

Draining this beer into a 20oz snifter reveals a muted, hazy orange beer with a gushing, white, foamy head. There is less lacing than expected and very little sediment. This is an excellent looking IPA and the head stays thick and fluffy well into drinking. The smell however is rather lacking. It's almost all yeast with a touch of sweetness and almost no hops or maple. I want my dry hopped squall back!!! The taste is also rather modest, but definitely balanced. The aftertaste is a little funky and bitter, but not unpleasant. The mouthfeel is elegant and effervescent, maybe providing too much bubbles, but still refreshing. Overall this beer has a sweet label, but fails to impress in the wake of squall.

**when the beer warms a lot more woodnotes come out, the beer definitely changes.

My third review, and they have all been DFH for some reason. Anyways, looked for this beer in Chicago for almost a month with very little success, but ran across it at the same shop that sold me Noble Rot and Sah'tea. What a find. Let's get to it!

A - pours a orange/golden with mild carbonation and a monster, fluffy head. Is something wrong with my footed iced-tea glass? I don't think so. Why am I not drinking this from a better glass? The head settles quickly to about a half-finger as you drink. The lacing is permanent and majestic. Hard to find something wrong with the look of this beer.

S - earthy, piney hops, strong but not overpowering. Somewhat musty. Maybe a hint of sweetness. People sometimes write biscuits - is that what I'm smelling? No idea.

T - follows the aroma. I get malty sweetness at the beginning that gives way to piney, earthy, hop bitterness that lasts with a nice-ish alcohol burn on the way out. This one stays with you a while. I have a feeling I would taste the piney hops the next morning after overserving myself on this, not unlike a night of G&Ts.

M - creamy and rich, but not so much that you don't want to keep experiencing it.

O - easily my favorite DFH IPA. 120 is certainly enjoyable (every now and then) in its complexity and uniqueness, but who can drink 18%. This outshines 90 in its lack of east-coast palate destruction. This is a very quaffable brew. Definitely well-worth the search. Wish it was produced on the scale of 60 and 90.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass. Pours a hazy orange yellow, with a two inch fluffy white head, that leaves lots of lacing all over. Smell is mango, maple, tangerine, grass, and some grapefruit. Taste is all of those things, mango and grass starting and maple and grapefruit in the finish. Body is large for its ABV, plenty of life, a little dryness in the finish, and easy drinking for the large body. This is very good.

Shared this beer with veotho, poured into a Chimay chalice.

A - Pours a magnificent clear, light amber orange hue with a three finger fluffy Duvel like head. Big, rocky, sticky side lacing. Seriously, this is a stupendous pour!

S - Smell has very nice hops (pine), with slight maple and barrel notes. Mostly though there is a strong pine hop presence. Very nice.

T - More of those nice pine notes intermixed with light maple and earthy woody barrel notes. Not alot of malts, which I like. Really don't like malty IPAs.

M - Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy. Super drinkable and enjoyable.

O - Overall this was a very enjoyable brew. I really like the hop presence in this beer. Glad I got to try it.

I had this thanks to tenderbranson69, enjoyed chilled in a willbecker.
This one foamed up when I used my usual pouring technique, must be the bottle conditioning.

The color is golden amber with a light haze and 3 fingers of foam with good lace. The smell has a strong floral and slight citrus character with slight pine from the hops and mild caramel sweetness in the nose with light candy tinge and mild alcohol scent. The feel is caramel, malt and slight piney bitterness which is balanced pretty well between the malt with slight bitter and mild sweet middle. The body is creamy and mostly bitter in the semi-dry finish.

Flavors of pine come forward with slight stone fruit tinges and mild floral aspects come in with light caramel and toasted malt flavors after the hops and sweetness wear off a bit. The nutty biscuit-like toasted taste is good adds dimension to the maple syrup and caramel malt while the mild spice of the hops keeps everything nicely balanced. There is an alcohol tinge with piney note and slight woody maple in the last sips. Overall a wonderfully complex beer, very drinkable and I enjoy the blend of 60 + 90 they have achieved. most IPA's aren't this well rounded and I recommend you get a bottle if you are on the fence.
