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: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy, golden/copper color. 5/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, floral hops, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, alcohol, and yeast. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, floral hops, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, yeast, alcohol, and hint of caramel malt. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and blend. Not too bitter, malt and hops are well balanced, and decent complexity.

Light golden-orange ale. Pours a monstrous head which maintains itself for the entire drink. As you sip, however, the liquid flows freely underneath the foam providing a nice look without all the foam in your mouth. Leaves behind mountains of soap did like lacing. Truly gorgeous!

Has a dense, malty, grainy, caramel-like aroma. Definitely getting some of the maple. Hint of herbal hop spice. Very warm, rich and inviting.

Flavor pretty well follows suit. Rich biscuity malt with maple syrup. Assertive herbal, pine-like hop character in excellent balance.

Medium bodied. Smooth feel. Semi dry finish. Mild carbonation. Very easy to drink.

This one gets an A from me. Love the innovation with the addition of maple syrup. Really makes this beer stand out from the thousands of other IPAs out there today.

Big orange peel, a burst in your mouth. The maple syrup truly adds a great mouthfeel to this beer. A slight bitterness added. Very nice vanilla and spice backing on this beer as well.

Overall a nice balanced American IPA. The bitterness is just right, and the sweetness is spot on. Not in an overly malty way.

Big thanks to SebD for sending this out west.

A: Pours a medium amber pumpkin with 4 fingers of off white head which slowly craters leaving clumps of lacing on the side of the glass.

S: Sweet vanilla malts paired with floral and tropical hops. Hints of maple syrup. Extremely smooth and balanced. Less hoppy than I expected.

T: Sweet candied orange peels, hints of woodiness, pale malts and maple syrup. Hops are reserved with slight bitterness on the finish. Well balanced and reminiscent of a DIPA.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Less hoppy and more balanced than what I was expecting, this was an interesting beer that I quite enjoyed.

A: Deep gold haze with a thick head that reduces rather quickly. Lacing is spotty. The haze may come from the suspended yeast as it is a bottle conditioned brew.

S: Surprisingly underwhelming. Some dank hoppy aromas with a sweet malty angle. Not citrusy or bright.

T: Excellent taste. I used to blend 90 and 60 before there was a 75 (yes, I was the first to do this). The combination works well. Lot of those familiar resiny hops flavors not offset, but supplemented by a malty sweetness that is pleasant (not cloying). I'm at a loss as to why they felt the need to add maple syrup. Creative impulse? Creative anxiety? Who knows, but I think it takes away more than it adds.

M: Finishes well. It doesn't ma-linger like the 60 or bite like the 90.

O: Very enjoyable beer. Nice idea to bottle condition it. But please consider holding off on the maple syrup. It thins the beer out and leaves an otherwise brilliant idea flatter than it could be.

P: Clear pale amber body with milky white head. Spotty lacing.

S: Pine sap, moss, honey dew melon, pineapple, black pepper and maple glaze. Aroma is similar to a empty bottle of old applesauce.

T/M: Earthy hops with the first sip then transitions to semi sweet sticky goodness. Bitterness is on the tail end and balancing. Syrup, dry straw, pine resin, honey and potpourri bitterness. Prickly and medium-full bodied that is between sticky and smooth.

O: Well rounded sweet hoppy brew that has a nice balance.

Ill start by saying that I've had the bomber of this sitting in my fridge for 2 days and very excited to drink it. Unfortunately I'm a little let down. The appearence looked pleasing. A golden orange color with a nice cloud to it. Many bubbles flowing to the top of the glass. It has a thick milky head that grew larger even 20 seconds after I stopped pouring. Not too much of a smell for what I had expected. I think the 60 min might smell more hoppy. No trace of the maple. Mouth feel and taste are average. No tongue numbness. And little carbonation feel. I feel as if I can taste more malt then hops. And no hints of maple anywhere. Not a bad beer in anyway, shape, or form. It not a great one either. Stick with 60min or 90min. Both great choices.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, maple syrup, caramelized malt and a touch of citrus.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of citrus, caramel and not as much maple as you would expect. The maple syrup flavor is more in the background along with some smokiness. The hops presence is also not as strong as you would expect but it’s certainly the same 60/90 Minute IPA taste that we’re all used to. The malt character is hearty and there’s a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good variation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a long time if you want a slightly different IPA.

Yet another twist on the ipa from dfh. This one pours a beautiful golden amber color with a thick foamy long lasting white head. The nose is typical dogfish ipa hops and malt with the pleasant presence of late autumn maple syrup. The mouthfeel is rich and creamy especially given the style. Almost wish it was a little fuller bodied so I could savor the taste longer. The flavor is everything the nose predicted, a perfect blend of hops, malt, and the earthy sweetness of maple syrup. I wish this was available more often; I'd drink it every day.

I got this as a gift and found that it had been chilled to waaay colder than it should have been served. It was still a great beer. The appearance is a dark gold in color with a smell of maple and floral notes through out. The taste was very impressive with good floral and grapefruit in the beginning, with the sweetness from the maple coming in the end to give a nice sweet finish that was actually very clean. As the bottle warmed back up I felt you got more of the maple notes through out. If you are giving this as a gift or drinking it yourself, please, keep it at room temperature till your ready to drink and only slightly chill it. Still a great buy!

A - Rich big head on this one! Nice golden/light amber color.

S - Getting our typical AIPA notes on this one but you can truly smell the sweetness of the maple syrup that it is brewed with. Fantastic smell.

T - Very well balanced. Getting the hop assertion but it is balanced with a slight biscuity sweetness in the malts and maple.

M - Well crafted. Refreshing and lightly carbonated.

O - They nailed it on this one...a great mix between the 60min and 90min...as they say, juusssst right. Highly recommended.

Poured into my trusty pint glass a medium copper color in appearance. Head was very thick other than that the taste of an IPA and Maple Syrup went down smooth and couldnt help drinking this one down good. Another great beer from Dogfish Head. another reason i love craft beers

Very good beer. Pours an amber color with incredibly thick head. Creates a foamy lacing. To me it has a smokey flavor, malts, and with a hint of the normal Dogfish Head citrus arrangement. You can smell the citrus more than you can taste it. The smokey/malt flavor might be a little of the maple coming out.

75 Minute IPA is a cloudy golden orange color with a gigantic dense, creamy, light tan head. Head has great retention, becoming rocky as it recedes and leaves heavy lacing. Aroma consists of mostly deep bready and caramel malts, citrus including orange and lemon, with hints of dark fruit and maple syrup. Not as much maple aroma as I expected.

Taste seems exactly like a toned-down 90 minute, as well as a mix of 60 and 90, as expected. Taste starts with musty citrus and heavy malts, moving on to hearty bread, a touch of dark fruit, and creeping maple syrup. Finish contains more old and musty citrus, as well as assertive malts, and maple syrup. Mouthfeel is a touch heavier than average, with average carbonation, a ton of chewiness, and some creaminess.

Lots of foam and head on this beer looks amazing and leaves an ice cream scoop of a head on the top after pouring. Smells like their 90 minute and 60 minute infused perfectly so you are getting the rich hop smell of the 90 and the more citrus smells from the 60. Very rich smelling hops flowery and citrus some orange and a touch of pine all come in on the smell of this beer its fantastic.

The thickness of the beer is perceived first with the sweetness very shortly following from the maple syrup and then right away in the middle and end of the sip you get a bitter citrus floral and piney hop flavor that honestly makes it their best IPA in my opinion. The maple syrup just really contributes so much to this beers mouthfeel and sweetness that makes it just not an IPA but a beer that is dynamic.

I really wish they'd put this as a year round in 6 packs! I know that's dreaming but I'd make it my go to IPA everytime. So well balanced but still appeals to the people who want a bitter hop profile as well. Thanks Dogfish!

Poured a hazy amber. Huge foamy off white head. Looked like an ice cream float. Tons of clingy lace.

Smells of pineapple and a dank spiciness.

Lots of grapefruit rind and citric hop flavors. Pine resins and an herbal spiciness. Good malt backbone, not over sweet. More balanced than the 90 minute IPA.

Medium bodied, oily hop resins coat your mouth.

Overall, my favorite IPA in the Dogfish line. Not cloying like the 90 minute. But a lot more going on than the 60. I didn't detect much, if any, of the maple. And that's fine by me.

A- Beautiful cloudy gold with a serious head.

S- Almost orangy/lemony with some sweet caramely notes at the end of the smell. also slightly earthy.

T- The maple syrup balances the citrusy hops very well. It stays throughout the taste while the hops die out. Yeasty once it warms.

M- Medium body with a perfect contrast from the carbonation. At first pour the head offers a delightful creaminess mixed with the sweetness from the maple syrup.

O- perfect IPA for an imperfect world. Another delicious elixir from Dogfish Head. They know how to make an IPA.

Appearance - Pours a golden amber/copper hue with three fingers of frothy, fluffy white head.

Smell - Citrusy hops, caramel malts, grapefruit and tropical fruit, slight hint of sweetness from maple syrup.

Taste - Moderately strong citrus hop bitterness with the sweetness of maple cutting through it, making for a great balance. Accented by grapefruit, caramel and tropical fruit flavours.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slight fluffiness/airiness to the body.

Overall - Dogfish Head delivers again on another stellar and unique IPA. Maple syrup cuts through the bitterness quite nicely to give the overall flavour the balance it needs.

S: little grassy, light lemon notes, not too strong on either
T: Light citrus and a little nutty early. Malts are there but give way to the sharp bitter hops taste.

750 mL bottle served in pint glass. Beer pours pale in color with a gigantic white head. Familiar dogfish IPA aroma, big on floral and citrusy hops. Loaded with carbonation. Does indeed taste like a sweeter take on Dogfish 60. I get sugar crystals on my tongue, rather than a syrupy sweetness. The beer itself is quite thin and dry. There's only the slightest suggestion of any Maple flavor. I actually get a little bit of oakiness on the back of the palate. Can't explain that. The real stars here are the massive dry hopping and epic hop profile.

Delicious, but 90 is still better. Probably.

looks good, orange-amber with plenty of head and sticky sheets of lacing,

Aroma and flavor are mixed between a smooth malty backbone and well balanced citrusy hops. Not the typically bite-oriented mix of 60 and 90 that I was expecting, but much more malt-oriented. Not sure what the goal was here, but it's not real stand-out like many DFH ales.

Body is medium to rich with a moderately malty finish.

Of all the DFH beers, this one isn't my most fav or most "impressed by."

Served from a craft bottle into a pint glass.

A - On pour, there formed a great head. The amount of lacing is excellent. The color is a nice amber hue.

S - Not terribly strong, but certainly notes of citrus from the hops. Slight amount of caramel, just as 90 minute, and maybe even some of the maple syrup that it's brewed with. Certainly sweet smelling.

T - Kind of strikes that perfect balance between the 60 and 90 minute. Definitely not boozy. Has an extra hint of sweetness that I credit to the maple syrup that's added to it. The citrusy hops are prevalent. Just like 60 and 90, though, this IPA is more balanced between hops and malt.

M - Maybe one of its best qualities. I like the extra carbonation that's put in this, as it makes it smoother and gives it more head. This makes its body feel a bit more full, which is kind of nice for an IPA.

O - Excellent. If you like 60 or 90 (or both), it's definitely worth trying. If you're looking for an IPA that's more on the malty side, this is also a good option.

A: Burnt orange color; formed a huge head even with a slow pour
S: Earthy, some floral/citrus hops and a nuttiness
T: Overall matches the nose. Not getting a lot of maple, but that's likely the nuttiness. Definitely a distinct earthiness I rarely find this bold
M: Medium-bodied, dry
O: A unique & well made IPA worth a try
