Notes: 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.

Reminded of this beer by the How many Beers of Fame have you reviewed? post. Reviewed from memory, have probably had about a six-pack in my life. This is fine, but does not live up to the hype.

Clear, bright amber coloring, beautiful bone white head, lasting long, looking lovely.

Aroma: Ah! Citrus and pine aplenty. Gorgeous. A little tropical fruit, melon and pineapple in this nose. Orange and lime, too. Ah, I say again.

Taste: Boom! Just what we want from an IPA, but creamy and smooth and just delightful. Bittersweet notes blast the palate, followed by malty sweetness. None too caustic, this IPA, it's smooth and palatable as can be.

I peeked at the label. Maple syrup? Not getting that yet. Huh.

Hop bitterness is restrained, but enjoyable. Delicious. Tasty. I'm loving it. I'm liking this so much, it's time to find out more about it. Okay, so…."A bottle conditioned India Pale Ale with maple syrup." 7.5% ABV. There are some situations when 90 is too much. There are other situations when 60 is too little. There are many situations when 75 is just right. Bottle-conditioned with pure maple syrup for complexity and dry-hopped out the bejeezum boards."

12oz bottle. Unfortunately I did not check the bottling date, which is '10/29/19', which makes the beer about eleven months in the bottle. I picked this up out of the store's cooler, and didn't think I needed to date check. Anyways . . .
Cloudy, deep gold colored body. One finger of lingering white, pillowy head. Not much left on the glass for lacing.
Aroma is grassy and muddy hops, with a sweet note from the maple syrup. Solid malt background.
Taste is grassy and piney hops, with a sweet note. Approaching a bitter note but not quite. Smooth trail off into the after taste. Allowing the beer to sit on the tongue really brings out the maple and hop combination.
Mouth feel is the best attribute of the beer, with dense coating and filling of the mouth. Very good carbonation.
I will try to try this again with a younger bottling date, but this is still a very good hoppy, but sweet, concoction.

I got a bottle of this beer off the single shelf at a beer store in LaCrosse, WI whilst there to move my daughter into school. The beer poured a clear golden with thin white head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent was mild hop notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with smooth citrus hop presence and a tangerine finish. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a good beer.

1/11/20...pours medium copper with a light ring of white foam. Oaky nose, hints of sour. Woody. Flavors if grape, oak, and maple sweetness. Heavy bitter checked in the background. Overall a balanced sweet maltiness w/ an oaky bitter. Interesting and quite good.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) into a Captain Lawrence muffin top pint; bottled 10/4/19.
A: Pours a hazy, orange amber color with ochre highlights, a one to two finger, orange meringue colored head, full finger retention, and foamy, sticky, and persistent lacing.
S: Aromas of caramel, pink grapefruit to orange, and pine in glorious balance.
T: Sweet. Flavors follow the nose, but seems complex in its simplicity. Solid, but not overpowering, i.e balanced bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with very robust carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking.
O: I thought it was remarkable similar to the 90 minutes, which means in was just delicious. Incredibly well concocted and executed beer.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint. Purchased at Trader Joe’s.

Look: Transparent with some light chill haze. Thick white head. Color is a light caramel.

Smell: Very malt forward with a bitter floral hop bit. Like whole wheat bread. Some toffee notes. No maple to be found.

Taste: Big and malty up front. Then a huge citric and floral hop bite comes in to the body with that distinct dogfish head IPA yeast. I’m not getting any maple here either.

Feel: Too big for 7.5%. High bitterness and sweetness that do not cancel each other out. Good carbonation.

Overall: The maple isn’t there and the IPA is not good enough on its own. I feel like if the maple rich sweetness was there it would help but instead the whole equation gets thrown off with that one missing part. Just okay.

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery "75 Minute IPA"
12 fl. oz. brown glass bottle, "BOTTLED ON 10/04/19 1347" and sampled on 01/25/20
$2.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: It's poured a hazy golden-orange body beneath a full head of off-white foam. The head retention appears to be pretty good. The aroma is grainy/malty with just a touch of maple syrup, and citrusy, piney, and floral with what I'm guessing are Cascades and/or some other "C hops". Hehe, I just looked at the label and it reads "off-centered art series FEATURING DAN STILES" - he's a friend of mine. Moving on, the flavor is fuller than the aroma might lead you to believe but it's pretty much the same. It's grainy, bready, and a little honeyish and sweet on the front of the tongue, but the hops and maple syrup immediately step in and transform it. The hops are gently citrusy, leafy, herbal, piney, and spicy. The leafy and herbal qualities enhance the malt & maple syrup while the citrus, pine, and spice lend it contrast and an additional balance beyond the bitterness that's there. It's medium-full in the mouth with a delicate bristle of carbonation before warming to become smooth and creamy. It's an interesting beer. It's pretty big (how strong is it? 7.5%) and a bit sweet but it's completely balanced. It transitions from malty to malty & hoppy, and then finishes drier but not too bitter with just a spritz of alcohol helping out the hops. I drank that REAL quick and I certainly didn't intend to. I've got just a swig and small sip left. The only thing that's let me down ever so slightly is that the lacing wasn't better. It still scores a 4.25 out of 5 though!

Disappointing ipa from one of the best breweries in the USA. Smells and looks great, but tastes smoky and harsh. It does have an interesting aftertaste, but not exceptional.
