Availability: Rotating

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.

Too anxious to wait the five minutes it takes for this four-fingered head to subside. Kickass fluffy lace. Amber body with a yellow-orange character. Lots of rising carb. Slight haze. Looks phenomenal. 4.5

Complex hop nose with tropical fruits and pine. Malt sweetness with no maple pulling through. Just lovely fruity hops with notes of mango, grapefruit, honey, and pine. 4.0

Yup, tastes like a 60/90 blend alright, and they make a harmonious pair. Slight syrupy sweetness that can be attributed, but not identifiable, as the maple. Woody and spicy notes that were never picked up in either of the original IPAs. Very cereal malt character that has its own spotlight shone on it. Very nice. 4.0

The bottle-conditioning nailed the mouthfeel down. Amazing velvety feel with some prickly carb. Near-perfect for a beer, let alone an IPA. 5.0

Very impressed by my first taste of 75 w/maple. Better this than mixing the two together. Recommended. 4.0

Bottled in 2012B, served into an over sized wine glass at around 50 degrees. I've always wanted to try this on tap/firkin/cask/etc so I was stoked when I heard this was getting bottled a few months ago.

A - Golden/amber clear body. Massive fluffy white head that lasted forever. Loads of lacing and retention.

S - Piney hops, light grapefruit and sweet caramel malts. The aroma is very sweet and different from 60 and 90 minute. Picking up some subtle maple and toffee notes.

T - There is some grapefruit and pine, but this is all about the sweetness. Finish is bitter with some maple and mineral notes. This is...unique. Mouth feel is excellent. Smooth and full bodied with a ton of carbonation. Bottle conditioning worked really well here.

O - Glad to have finally tried this beer. This has all the pros of 60 and 90 minute. Piney and sweet with a nice maple finish. I liked this beer a lot. If it were in 4/6 packs I would probably never buy their other IPA's again.

A- Slightly hazy golden yellow-orange into a pint glass. Fluffy white head forms to a few fingers in size and has nice retention. Tons of lace all around the glass.

S- Pretty much hop forward with notes of citrus fruit, lemon zest, flower bouquet, herbal tea and slight tropical fruit.

T- Has a ton of the aspects of the smell but also a malty, spicy thing going on. Hops forward with citrus, floral, herbal and pine notes. Other hints are light caramel sweets, bread, raisin and light fruit. You can taste the malty aspect of the 90 minute with the "West Coast" hops of the 60 minute.

MF- Creamy body with fairly high carbonation. Finishes fairly bitter.

Hop forward but there are other things coming from the malt and yeast. You can taste both beers here and it is pretty cool, especially since they are the best DFH beers IMO.

Got this one at a local beer store. Glad to get to try this rarity. 750ml bottle, 2012 vintage...

A: A nice hazy golden colored beer with a humongous 2+ inch head which fades at a decent pace. Very good.

S: Opens with a nice display of piney hops on the nose with an undertone of sweet malt. Good.

T: A piney hop opens up with a subtle thick syrupy sweetness in the back. They piney hop follows through entire palate, but the syrupy sweetness in the background quickly turns to a maple sweetness and ends with a nice subtle maple flavor on the palate. Interesting. Good.

M: Full body with a lot of carbonation. A syrupy dry finish. Decent.

O: All in all, this is a good beer to try if you like DFH and want to try and interesting blend on their IPA's. It's an IPA that has a lot of syrupy sweetness too it the follows along with the hop bite.

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

appearance: slightly hazy, not dark enough to be amber but certainly not pale. The head is a thing of beauty. push, billowy white.
smell: Citrus hops up front with a rounder sweetness. The maple is mellow enough that I wouldn't have identified it right off w/o already knowing it's there.
taste: Very good but my expectations were higher after the stunning look and nose. Hops and the maple are more subdued but there's a well balanced simplicity.
overall: DFH is known for extremes. A little surprised the maple isn't more in your face. I'd like a little more in the mix.

Poured into a tulip. This one pours an amber honey color with four fingers of frothy white head. More head than beer in my glass, and this head seems to have staying power.

The first thing that comes to mind in the aroma is sharp cheddar cheese (I realize this may sound insane). Behind that a lingering aroma of mild citrus hops comes through with a slightly sweet edge. Sweet malts are the first thing I notice on the pallet with a kiss of bitter hops to round it out. Maple flavors with a little bit of orange pull this together.

The body is a bit on the heavier side and slightly sticky with soft carbonation.

Overall I'm a little disappointed. I'll think I'll stick with 60 minute as my Dogfish drink of choice.

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

A - Pours a bit of a hazy golden orange. Very puffy head that leaves a lot of sticky lacing along the sides.

S - A nice of blend of piney and citrus hops. Grapefruit, orange, and zest are most prominent.

T - Very zesty and lemony at first, a good bit of maple comes forward to provide some sugary sweetness that finishes with a piney hop kick.

M - Full and a bit sticky. Honestly you can "feel" the maple more than directly taste it. It's cool and crisp.

Overall - A fine beer overall. Sometimes DFH gets criticized for going "out there" on beers, but they can make a solid IPA, and this is no exception. Perhaps my favorite between this, 60 and 90. Well done brew.

750 ml bottle shared with my buddies.

It pours a hazy golden orange with a frothy yellowish white head.

The smell is mostly malty. There is a nice grapefruit tinge but mostly pleasant grains and some caramel.

The flavor is nice. A mixture of really good malts and a good bit of hops. I am not a fan of the 60 but not the 90, this one is better than either.

A nice one.

A: Pours a dark golden color with a light orange hue. The head is massive and has nice retention and lacing down the side of the glass.

S: Nice hoppy notes protruding from the glass, with hints of citrus and pine aromas. The maple syrup comes through as well, giving this beer a nicely balanced and delicious scent.

T: The taste is just as you would expect, piny hops upfront with the citrus notes following. The finish is very good, the maple hits the palate at just the right time to balance out the hops and it is spectacular. You really have to love the maple in this beer.

M: Medium bodied with average carbonation. The feel is hoppy and maple.

D: I've had this beer on cask a while back and loved it. Well it didn't disappoint my memory, it is a solid beer. Very well balanced and very drinkable.
