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.

ADfan (852) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Honey amber color in the glass with a massive head. The aroma has huge malts up front with some citrus and pine. Also some bread and a hint of sweetness. Taste has maltiness up front which leads the way with a touch of maple sweetness. Also some citrus on the finish. Great beer and well balanced.

Beerdrinker79 (2032) - Idaho, USA - DEC 21, 2012
750 ml. bottle- Pours slightly hazy golden with a nice two finger fluffy white head. The aroma is strong hops, resinous, piney, I don’t have to even put my nose to the glass to smell them, if there is maple syrup it is overpowered by the hops. The taste is also resinous piney bitter hops, there is a strong malt backbone, I do get the maple mostly in the aftertaste, it’s like a wallop of bitterness then a hint of sweetness that follows through the finish. Body is medium, carbonation is kind of high. Overall I liked this, was possibly hoping for more, but was good.

Garbageman (487) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2012
From bottle. Pours amber with haze and little head. Wonerdful aroma of fresh piney AND citrus hops. Taste follows with balance between a huge hop bill and caramel malt.

poisoneddwarf (2283) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - DEC 20, 2012
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 (555) - 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 (2667) - 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.

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.
