Johnny Cask has entered the building! We’ve retrofitted a 15 barrel tank to perfectly produce a very special cask conditioned ale (so, we have a little time to play around during winters at the Delaware coast). This beer, known as Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA is a blend of 60 and 90 Minute IPAs with a special whole leaf cascade dry-hopping session. Post-hopping the beer gest transferred into firkins and dosed with fresh yeast and maple syrup from the ole family homestead (actually the first batch will be re-fermented with maple syrup from the farm up the road from ours since ours won’t be ready until late March.

Only the ratings for bottles and single-cask pours of this should be rated. The 50/50 blends of 60 and 90 where they come from different taps are not rateable, and do not belong here.

750 ml bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge off-white head with excellent retention; leaves decorative lacework. Aroma is grapefruity, apples and the maple syrup comes through fairly strong. Unfortunately, the maple syrup doesn’t come through as strong in flavor; this tastes like an underwhelming straight IPA for the most part. Doesn’t taste too fresh. Highly carbonated with a creamy mouthfeel. Even with these gripes, this still ain’t too bad.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Bomber from McGee’s. Hazy, orange-gold pour with a rocky white head and leaving heavy lace. Nose is balanced, some malt and some pine hops. Medium body and moderate, fine carbonation. Pine, caramel, walnuts and faint maple. Finish is quite dry and resinous. A choice balance between 60 and 90, with some extras thrown in the mix.

glennmastrange (2431) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, moderate to heavy pine and orange for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with hints of date and coriander. Head is large, frothy, slightly off-white with thick crusty lacing and is fully lasting. Color is slightly hazy light amber with a orange tint. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then the long finish is lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, just a little slick with a lively carbonation. Well balanced aromas and flavors in this stringer than average IPA. I didn’t get any maple syrup, but maybe that’s mellows it out so nicely.

Cask tap at Two Stones, Wilmington, Delaware to 9oz glass. Pours with one finger head that settles quickly with a bronze color. Aroma is bready, molasses, sweet. Taste is low bitterness, malty, toast, and molasses with touch of roast malts. Mouthfeel is moderate with low carb.

Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 1st Bottle:White head with orange/amber color. Citrus/sweet nose. Bitter, but light palate. I can understand the mix of 60 and 90 minutes in this beer. Sweet but not sure Im getting maple syrup. 2nd: Actually turned out better, finally getting the maple syrup. Smoother than first time I tried it. 1st bottle was stored in fridge, 2nd was cellared and served after hour and half in fridge. Might have made a difference here. Nice beer.

thome50 (1229) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - DEC 11, 2012
750ml bottle, thanks Tomas. Pours a orange, hazy, golden color with white head. Aroma was minimal citrus/pine. Taste was a little faded as the malt took over and the sweetness from the maple syrup, I guess, came into play. Probably not the freshest bottle but it tasted like a DFH ipa. Not bad but not something I’d seek out and not something I’d order if there was any other IPA or something interesting on tap.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 8, 2012
750ml bottle: Pours a clear bright golden with an airy froth of white head. Has a fresh piny hop nose with some light citrus and pale malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and lightly toasted crystal malty sweetness with a healthy dose of hop resin and bitter balance before a drier crisp bittersweet finish. Dangerously drinkable, but wish it were available in 6 packs.

bytemesis (4654) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a huge off-white head that slowly dissipates with good lacing. Aroma is spruce, pine, caramel, toffee, citrus. Flavor is about the same plus strong herbal notes, lightly rye spicy, lightly sweet, lightly bitter body with bitterness growing into the finish. Medium body. Good not great. I guess I am not a DFH IPA guy.

IndyBeerSnob (132) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Poured from large bomber. Aroma is sweet and slightly malty. a heady white foam tops this beautiful beer. Taste is splendid, smooth, complex, and finishes with a sweet hop blend. Really a special treat having this beer. Drove 45 minutes over the state line for this one. Well worth it. Cheers

kindacold (224) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Pours translucent orange with a thick, creamy head. Beautiful. Not a powerful smell; citrus and hops a bit. Taste: citrus and hops, some sweetness. As a Vermonter, I’m a bit disappointed in the "maple syrup" flavor they claim. I get hints of it, but not as much as I’d hoped for. It’s very much a milder version of the 90 minute. A bit of sweetness, some yeast, some salt. Touch of wood. As it warms, there’s a bit of spiciness to it...cinnamon and others. More yeast comes out. A bit sticky on the finish, with citrusy hops.
