    Was considering picking up some Dogfish 75 minute. However I noticed on the review it says its not a good Cellaring beer. Does anyone have any experience aging this beer?

    I wouldn't age it, especially if you've never had it. A 7.5% ABV IPA is probably not the best cellar choice.

    why would you even consider cellaring an ipa at 7.5%?

    I mean it has some good malt and maple sweetness, it's doubtful that short-term it will turn undrinkable. it won't improve at all, though.

    Maple and hops will fade. This is best drank fresh. On cask, this is one of the best beers I've ever had.

    The label says:
    It IS a "living beer". I bought a few bottles yesterday (i love the stuff!) I'll lay one down for 6 months and another for a year to see what happens.

    I say if you've never had it, have it fresh. If you have more than one bottle, try an experiment
