Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a dense layer and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Mild citrus, pine, some earthy and floral notes, light malt, and a hint of sweetness.

T: Pine, kinda earthy, floral, citrus, orange, lemon, light malt, a bit yeasty, and a touch of sweetness. Pretty well balanced, but nothing even whispers maple.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy.

O: Not bad, but I'd go for a 60 Minute or 90 Minute instead. Nothing really stands out to make this one all that special.

Bottled 10/7/15; poured into a snifter glass. Pours dark gold with a thin white head. Very fine carbonation with slight cloudiness. Mouthfeel is light and bubbly; easy drinking.

Sweet, strong aroma that has candy-like notes. Light hint of citrus and yeast. More citrus in the taste; closer to orange than the lemon or grapefruit notes I usually find in IPAs. Mild, rounded bitterness that complements the light malt flavor well. The bitterness dominates slightly, and that's a good thing since it's such a sweet, sweet bitterness.

Overall it's well-balanced, and very enjoyable. It's not the more recent, juicer take on IPAs, but it's a great expression of the classic American IPA. Cheers!

I had this at the brewery from their cask system. They generate a good head with their system so the aroma is very good. The mouthfeel on cask is very creamy. The taste is about what you would expect from the mix of 60 and 90 minute. A very nice beer that I would seek out.

75 Minute IPA pours a hazy golden color with a small lacing head. Very weak aroma, with hints of sweetness. Taste is a little earthy, with a good hop flavor, with a maple sweet aftertaste. Nice body and feel. Overall, more earthy then the other minute IPA's, but really like the sweet aftertaste.

I have no idea why it took so long for me to track this beer down; but now here we are, honey. 750ML bottle with the best use of a made-up word I’ve seen in quite a while.

The pour is all IPA, all day: orange, with a small number of now-sunken pieces of particulate matter that must have escaped the gravity of the Large Hadron Collider. The nose is very sweet, which I’ll attribute to the syrup, sans footnote, with a strong presence of jack pines. My favorite kind. We take “pine baths” after several days in the wilderness by walking through a stand of pines & rubbing the needles all over our hands & clothes. But I digress.

75 Minute is exquisitely balanced. The shadows of 60 and 90 Minute are all over this: the expansive pine needles & heavy bittering that clings to the roof of the mouth long after the liquid has passed south. Heavy sweetness sweeps in mid-palate; syrup. Maple syrup. I couldn’t identify the body if it wasn’t on the label, but the fingerprint is there. Very dry & totally suckable.

Straight-up simple, old-school IPA with some Three Rivers stirred in (if you haven’t had Three River Maple Syrup, go, buy). I prefer it’s cousins up & down the numerical column, but this is very good.
