COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

At the Alehouse in Falls Church. Golden with little head. Not much aroma. Taste is a nice mix of floral and citrusy hops. Dry with a nice carb. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and piney hops, a good amount of caramel malts, and maple syrup. Flavor the same, with some spiciness and lots of syrup. Average texture. A really good beer.

Bomber from Tiffany’s , Kalamazoo MI. Thick hazy tan gold pour. A few inches of very dense white head on top. Scent is subtle pineapple and pine hops. Light or medium body with medium carbonation. Hop- forward taste but in a huge blend of hop flavors. Coppery taste (I mean that to be positive), also pine hop flavor. Don’t really sense the impact of maple syrup. Finish is shockingly clean and sweet, lavender and honey taste is left with a hint of dryness but very little bitter. I like 90 minute more.

Tinco (566) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2012
Pours a hazy light orange with a HUGE three to four finger fluffy white head. Aroma is of sweet oranges, pine, bisquity malts, honey, lemon. Taste is pine, grapefruit at the back, some sweet malts, honey?, resin, fresh, citrus. Nice hoppy but still somewhat balanced, a very nice IPA!

Citrusy floral hop aromas. Leafy green hops and citrus flavors. Lingers on the palate. Overall a very very good IPA.

jaghana (3917) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle from Alex kindly shared with me and Simon ! Cloudy amber beer with good head. Nose is powerful on aromatic hops. Aroma is a bit less interesting than the nose, medium sweet to low, resinous, light, bitter, almond, grass, agrume, good but less impressive than 90 one.

Bottle from Whole Foods Henderson, NV
Cloudy amber color, beautiful creamy head. Fresh hoppy fruity aroma. Dry mouthfeel, below expectations; good delicate malt flavor, good fruity hopping. Strong dry final.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2013 Cask at Blind Tiger. Hazy yellow beer with good soapy head for a cask. Aroma is ripe citrus juice, light pine. Taste adds a wet horse blanket and vaguely meaty flavor before a quite strong bitterness kicks in. Feel is cool and texture is dusty. Really good though not refined cask ipa. Bottle from Breukelen Bier Merchants. The head is really creamy and fully lasting, like it doesn’t go away and leaves thick. The aroma is similar to the cask with a bit more of a soapy note. The flavor is more juicy sweet though less bitter. I don’t get any obvious maple. The texture is softer and fresh. It’s a comforting reassuring IPA. Bravo.

Bottle purchased at The Greeks in Narberth. Just arrived that day so it must be fresh! New typey DFH 750ml bottle. Pours with a tooooooooonnnnnnnn of frothy white head. An explosion if you will. For sure this is bottle conditioned. Very mild floral aroma. Darkish golden and hazy profile. Lots of thick lacing. Mouthfeel is just too carbonated even after sitting out for a long time. Taste is quite good. Earthy, doughy taste. Plenty of grass, lemon, mild pine sap, vanilla and wood (cedar). Damn good beer. Really tasted like a cask conditioned IPA. It was $13 a bottle so I'm not sure I'd buy it again any time soon, but I did really like it. Let it sit out uncapped a while, the flavor gets better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
