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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

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.

Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA, 7.5% ABV. Pours orange with a 2-finger off-white head that left heavy foam lacing. Nose is malt, flowers, sweet maple and melon. Taste is malt, maple, light citrus, moderate to heavy bitterness. Excellent mouthfeel, overall excellent.

12oz bottle into a tulip.

L: Very lightly hazy (by today's IPA standards, at least) orange-amber body under a 3/4" head of off-white foam. Good retention and thick lace. Quite nice indeed.

S: Piney, resinous hops are front and center. Caramel-drizzled grapefruit pith as it warms. Simple, direct, and enticing.

T: Balance of sweet malt and bitter hops up front, with candied citrus being the dominant flavor. Maybe a hint of maple, but I doubt I'd have recognized it if it weren't listed on the label. Solid resinous bitterness on the finish - crazy bitter by today's standards, but it works well. Really tasty old-school IPA.

F: Soft, well-carbonated medium body. Excellent.

O: Thoroughly enjoyable beer. Better than either 60 or 90 for my palate, although the latter will always have a dear place in my heart as a gateway to hops over a decade ago.

Beers of Fame tick 182/250. Cheers!

Hazy and anticipated it to be sweeter. Maple wasn’t as prominent. Easy to drink, but bitter. I’m big on aftertaste and this wasn’t too bad. Some bite.

From a 12oz bottle dated 9/26/19 into a pint glass. Color is a murky yellowish brown, not quite opaque, with about a half finger of white head, moderate retention and lacing. Smell is a little weak. Picked up some hop bitterness on opening the bottle with some sweetness coming from the glass after the pour. Taste: This is pretty close to 90 Minute IMO with some sugary sweetness. Not totally picking up maple syrup, but the taste isn't a negative either. Pretty sharp hop bitterness on the swallow and aftertaste. Bitterness is a little strong on the mouthfeel. I would choose 90 minute over this but overall a decent brew that I would revisit.

Bottled 9/26/19

Pours a hazy amber with a small white head with some nice lacing

A mild hop aroma meets the nose, not unlike the 90 minute, it's just toned down. The maple comes through less than I had hoped

The taste brings the maple forward a bit in the finish, a nice sugary vibe. Otherwise it's a pretty standard, well balanced IPA

Medium in feel with fairly good carbonation, a soft and dry finish

I wish I had found this a bit sooner so it would've been fresher, but still not bad

I like the bottle label artwork, great use of color. The pour is marmalade color. The taste is malts, grapefruit, pine, & orange. The beer can use some more of the maple syrup because it's too subdued. Cheers! B

Six pack copped from Kings in Morristown. Pours a golden, bronze hue with moderate frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile. Recommended.

A decent IPA. Nothing special. Poured from 12 oz. bottle, typical light head, decent lacing. I don't taste any maple syrup. The mouthfeel is epecially nice and thick though. Nice creamy texture to it. Still...probably won't buy it again. Go with the outstanding 90 min, or 120 min IPA's. Much better beers.

Bottle from Brewers Haven. Medium amber with thin creamy head. Aroma: oranges, caramel, fruity notes. Taste follows with some orange zest, sweet caramel, toffee, apples . Falls a bit flat at the finish, but finishes clean.

Pours out mildly hazy gold color. Like amber or sap. A finger of head with some nice lacing.

Smell is a mixture of pine, citrus, some pineapple, a bit of sweetness, and malt. All very mild and complimentary with each other.

Taste is light pine bitterness first. Immediately followed up by caramel malt notes that transition into a more crackery malt profile. Not getting much maple syrup, but it is there. This is a touch sweeter than your average IPA which rounds it out nicely.

Mouthfeel is smooth. Nice density, almost sticky. Lively carbonation, but smooth bubbles. Creating a nice balance. Bite comes only briefly and disappears, making you want to sip more.

This is a nice approachable IPA for anybody who might be hesitant to try this style of beer. Relatively light, refreshing, smooth, and nicely balanced. It isn't mindblowing, but it simply doesn't have to be. It achieves a respectable level of enjoyment.

I was lucky enough to find one of these in the back of a mixed cooler. A darker pour. Smells very hoppy. A very bright hoppy flavor with a sweet subtle maple finish. Incredibly smooth for an ipa. How could an ipa brewed with maple syrup be any good? I have no idea but it is exceptional.

Pours a hazy orange gold with a one finger white frothy head. A thin film of head remains throughout. Moderate lacing. Mild aroma of herbs and citrusy hops. Taste is malt forward with a hint of maple syrup followed by grassy and citrus hops with a piney finish. Well balanced. Soft buttery mouthfeel. Moderate - light carbonation.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip...

Pours a fine looking amber/gold with plenty of haze. An initial two-finger foamy head gives way to a nice collar of lacing. An excellent appearance.

The aromas are somewhat subdued, but pleasant. Solid malt sweetness up front, but with good balance. Grassy, earthy, and citrusy hops arrive as well, with a hint of barrel and booze.

The flavor is definitely skewed a bit sweet, but not necessarily from the maple. The malts are solid and biscuity., with some graham cracker notes noticeable. There is a bit of a soapy/tingly aftertaste that distracts from the primary hop notes, which are solid but nothing remarkable. Typical grapefruit, pineapple, and resin hop flavors arrive with a touch of booze at the finish.

The mouthfeel is decent, if a bit flat on the carbonation side. Medium bodied, it isn't sticky, but isn't crisp either. It is, in fact, rather "moderate" in every aspect.

Overall, a solid IPA that, nevertheless, doesn't measure up to either of the brews ostensibly blended to arrive at this one.

EP 1:
The inclusion of maple syrup into the brewing process makes this IPA have an interesting and defining buttery mouthfeel and flavor, setting it apart from most other brews in the style. Not something to get every day, but certainly worthwhile if you're looking for something new and challenging.

EP 16:
The sweet and rich flavor that the maple syrup adds to this beer is a welcome paring with the underlying IPA makeup. This is certainly not a go-beer for us, but we all enjoy it occasionally as a nice spinoff. Essentially, we agree with our previous rating. Go us.

Poured into a weizen glass from a refrigerated bottle.

Look: A dark orange, amber, hazy in color with a decent head. Llooks like an amber with an orange hue.
Smell: The hop aroma is strong and heavy. I can smell the heaviness of the this beer.
Taste: Not overly sweet. I suppose maple syrup could be appreciated, but I don't notice much. Lacks any fruity/citrus presence.
Body: A heavy body but minimal carbonation. Slightly oily.

Overall: An interesting IPA. The smell is the best aspect of the beer. Its a heavy bodied IPA with minimal bitterness or fruit character. I personally could not appreciate the syrup taste, but its definite in the mouthfeel.
