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.

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 (3272) - Swarthmore, 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.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2012 Pour out of 750 mL bottle is hazy orange-red with big thick white head, lacing and lasting for a long time, at least 3-4 fingers worth, lacing fairly well. Aroma has some notes of lemon, biscuit, some pine and grass notes, little to no maple syrup but a bit light on the nose, with a slight mineral note as well. Taste is completely different however, some nice grapefruit and orange notes with a big maple syrup note in the middle, some slight caramel, finishing fairly sweet but with a slight lemony bitter.

Westmeister (1650) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a massive white head and tremendous lacing. Appearance is top notch. Smell is slightly subdued orange peel and pine hops with some caramel sweetness. Mo maple though. And not an in your face aroma. Taste is more smooth citrus with the maple actually making an appearance. Not my favorite IPA but interesting in itís own right and just a really nice beer overall.

750 ml bottle, stamp on bottle says bottled in 2012D 14:52. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a hazy dark gold color with a couple inch frothy off-white head. The head stays around a very long time, and thereís a good amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is nice, it smells like citrusy (orange peel, tropical fruit, grapefruit) and pine hops, and caramel and sweet malt. It tastes just like the aroma, like citrusy and pine hops, caramel and sweet malt. I didnít notice any maple when I first started drinking this brew but once I let the beer settle for a while, the maple did become noticeable in both the aroma and flavor (but it wasnít strong at all). Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís creamy and slick with high but soft carbonation. I think this is a good overall beer. I have another bottle that Iím going to age for a while to see how it changes. Definitely worth a try at $7.99 a bottle.

ben4321 (3755) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Location: 750 ml bottle from jcos, 3/23/12

Aroma: The nose has some floral hops to it, citrus, grapefruit, caramel, and a little bit of pepper
Appearance: It pours a slightly cloudy orange color with a thick, foamy white head and heavy lacing
Flavor: The flavor has a fairly similar hop profile (mostly in the finish) to the nose, in addition, it has a bit of a woody/ tree sap feel, with some caramel malty sweetness, and just a hint of the honey
Palate: The body is medium-full, it has a slightly creamy and sticky feel, and some plus carbonation
Overall Impression: Thanks, Kramer! This was a pretty enjoyable beer. I like what they did here, and I thought it worked pretty well. The complexity comes out a little more in the flavor then is does in the nose, but there is definitely some nice complexity here.

dlinn (141) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Mellow on the nose, slight bitterness on th finish. Huge aroma. It really is somewhere between the 60 and 90 in flavor. Iím glad it comes in a bomber, I need another glass.

Bottle @ Danís house. Hazy, golden orange appearance with a big, off white head. Rich piney, a bit sappy hoppy, somewhat spicy, caramelized aroma with hints of light citrus fruits. A bit syrupy, light maple, sappy, caramel, piney, orange citrusy hoppy flavor. Pretty easy drinking.
