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.

It pours a nice, deep gold color with a dense, creamy, off-white head. It smells nice and hoppy, but slightly subdued underneath all that foam. The flavor has great pine resin, and tropical fruit notes. Outstanding flavor! Medium bodied with low carbonation and a lingering, smooth but bitter finish.

I was very eager to try this. Poured a slight orange/ copper color. Thick white foamy heady than did not retreat. Very soft nose , the hoppiness was subdued yet present enough to intrigue the senses. A very tame bitterness nothing like I expected. Easy drinking ipa. Don’t think I would invest another 15 dollars though.

Bottle from Spirits Manahawkin. Pours out a murky copper color with a big fluffy off white head. Aroma is sweet citrus fruits, some spicy hoppy notes, bread and a lingering sweetness. Taste is of spicy citrus hops, orange rind, light wood, some maple sweetness, woodsy notes, pine hops. I like it.

From the bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange with a never ending thick white head. Citrus hops, woody, and maple syrup aroma. Medium body with lots of citrus and pine hops in the taste. Lots of resiny hops throughout, tasty brew.

Bottle form --->> Pint glass. Oblivion taproom. Nose is plenty of citrusy hops with some light maple sweetness and an oak-like quality. Pour is light copper with an extreme amount of head from my initial pour. I had to wait to drink it for about 5 minutes haha. Taste is lightly sweet citrus from the hops and smooth caramel malt with some light oak qualities again. Very nice and drinkable. Lots of carbonation though. Great!

Chipalsa (1309) - Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2012
What a find! The body was lightly carbonated, but also a lightly hazed orange with a huge head. The aromas were thick of dried oranges, lemongrass and lemon zest. Flavors were at first a mild and welcoming hop character with a solid citrus balance. Pour after pour the maple came through and complimented the delicate malt balance. Great stuff and very session-able at 7.5%. Thanks to OmegaX for the bottle share!

A 750 ml bottle from Dog and Bull in Croydon, poured into a Duvel tulip. This appeared as a clear copper with a large white head. This settled to a coating but left ample lacing. The nose was pine, citrus (especially lemon and orange) and some maple syrup. Taste was a nice interplay of hops and sweetness with emphasis on notes of citrus, some breadiness and the maple syrup. Body was medium, creamy and with a healthy carbonation. This is NOT a hop bomb, but a pleasant and remarkably well-balanced IPA, and it is more than just a combination of 60 and 90- minute. I like both but might like this even better than either. If I can get any more, I am eager to try this again SOON!

Super awesome citrus aroma. Clear orange color with a large lasting white head. Strong bitter beginning with a mild sweetness mixing in for the finish.

Clear gold pour with a huge head. Some lacing is present. Aroma of grain is very present. Taste is clean and refreshing. I’m not picking up the maple syrup much. I do taste the 60 minute, and a little 90 too. Mouth feel is great. Feels very much cask conditioned. I like this, but I think I like the 60 & 90 on their own better.
