COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Johnny Cask has entered the building! Weíve 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 wonít 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.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2012
750ml bottle, 2012C batch. Served at around 40-45F.

Pours lightly hazy golden amber with a large fluffy white head that leaves clumpy rings of lacing and holds a great cap.

Aroma is floral and grassy hops, some citrus and pine, bread & caramel, not much maple syrup on the nose. Good strength.

Flavor is quite nice, with mostly citrusy hops, some grass & a bit of pine, fair caramel malt backbone offering some sweetness, maple syrup comes through pretty well, finishes with good bitterness and a touch of alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a bit oily and sticky with sharp carbonation.

For not being the biggest fan of 60 and particularly 90 Minute, Iím pretty impressed by this one. Nice and hoppy, well balanced and the maple syrup adds a nice touch. Good one!

RABinCO (1164) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Pours a cloudy gold, looking more like a hefeweizen than an IPA with big billowing head. Super sweet aroma that foreshadows the sweet dryness of the beer itself. Youíre not going to taste much of a distinctive maple flavor from the syrup more so the residual sweetness. Overall, it tastes like the 60 minute more than the 90 minute, with a little more of an alcohol burn and a lot more sweetness. Really sticks around in the mouth afterward like candy.

mcmisko (351) - New York, USA - MAR 24, 2012
From a 750ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a slight orange tint. Big white fluffy head with good retention that leaves behind lacing. Smell is very fruity and floral. Taste is thick with lots of sweet citrus hops, malts, and dark fruit flavors (must be from the maple syrup). Texture is thick and a little sticky. After taste is sweet, fruity, and hoppy, but not bitter. This is a pretty big IPA with a lot of flavor. This will not please some one wanting some things dry and bitter, because this has a lot of sweetness to it too.

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2012
3/24/12. 750mL bottle. Slightly hazed copper pour with a HUGE khaki head that sticks around forever and laces a ton. Bold hop aroma, plenty of citrus, fresh citrus at that, with clean cut grass and a touch of sweetness. Nice hoppy flavor as well - lemon peel and grass with a solid malt body and a definite maple kick that is subtle but there... it adds an almost roasty sweetness to the mix. This is one of their best beers in awhile if you ask me. Ta Henket and Noble Rot? Skip it - Iíll have more of this!

Morey (46) - Erie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2012 Bomber with "Bottled in 2012" stamped on the bottle. Ok....but how about giving us at least the month if not the day?

Pours out a hazy copper-orange color with a ton of carbonation bubbles dancing around inside the glass. It boasts a towering head thatís over 3 fingers tall following a medium-light pour. Needless to say, thereís a plenty of lacing all over the glass.

Iím getting a good amount of toasted caramel malts in nose. Also worth mentioning...brown sugar, pine resin, earthy notes, and wet grassy hops.

Taste: Nice combination of hops and sweet malts at the forefront. Carbonation scrubs and massages the tongue and is accompanied by a pleasant wet-hop bitterness. Iím getting some earthy flavors about midway, but not as much as the nose would have indicated. Very balanced all of the way through, as just about all of the above flavors linger on through the finish.

Medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

An above average and somewhat unique Ipa overall.

Moreyís Bottom Line: I canít speak for the other two member of triple B, but Iíve never been in love with 60 or 90 minute. But, this 75 combines the best of both worlds. Itís brewed with a touch of maple syrup which adds to flavor and feel of this beer. Good stuff.

jtclockwork (8044) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle thanks to Jay for holding on for me. Pours orange amber with a thick off white head. Nose/taste of maple, caramel malt, peach, light pines, citrus and fresh grassy hops. Medium body. Finishes slightly dry and bitter. Well balanced.

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Bomber pours a lively dark amber with a huge rocky head. Floral aromas of hops grapefruit pine and some maple syrup very layered. Flavor starts bitter with hoppy grassy flavors but moves to the sweet side at the end with a maple pine flavor. Body is full and astrigent finishes well with hints of syrup.

Pours golden orange with a huge white head. Bold hoppy aroma, citrus, resin, caramel, maple. Balanced hoppy flavor with maltier notes as it warms. A bit too much carbonation. Very good IPA

TheEpeeist (3297) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2012
25.4 oz bottle with cool raised sharks just below the neck. Almost clear olive orange yellow with a meringue head that slowly collapses over 10 minutes leaving sheets of lace. Nose is pineapple, orange, musty pine, maple and toffee. Resiny and quite substantial with foamy carb and a slight sting. Taste is orange and maple, citrus peel and nectarine. Peppery finish with some bubblegum. Yummy.

dfhhead25 (251) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Aroma- honey, citrus, floral hops, honey, maple sweetness Appearance- hazy soft orange with a massive, pillowy white head and an insane amount of lacing Taste- soft hop punch followed by a syrupy sweetness, more bitter hops follow, then a citrus sweetness, aftertaste is a nice blend of maple and lingering hop bitterness Palate- great mouthfeel, slick coating and nice carbonation Overall- Very nice brew from Sam and the boys at DFH. It fits perfectly between 60 and 90 and is distinctly hoppier and sweeter then 90. However, this, to me, should really be a more consistent release in 12 oz bottles rather then the diesel bottles. Superb IPA.
