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.

Boutip (5065) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2012
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of pine and light citrus hoppy notes with some sweet caramel malt. Taste is a mix between some medium hoppy notes with some citrus and resin notes backed by a solid and a bit too sweet caramelized malt backbone. Body is about average with medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad but definitely a bit too sweet which makes me wonder if maple syrup is really bringing anything worthwhile to the mix.

Pours dark amber with a great head. Aroma is funky sweet with a bite. Flavor is strange, tasty bittersweet with a funky aftertaste, not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CPDalton (67) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - APR 10, 2012
Poured with a huge three finger head, typical IPA color. Smells very malty and sweet, I can definitely detect the syrup. The hops are also present. It starts off malty like the 90 minute, then you get the sweetness of the syrup, and it all leads to a kick of hop bitterness. Wow that's crazy. Not much carbonation but the hoppy bite stays deep in your throat long after your sip. Crazy good.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2012
22oz bottle. Orangish amber brew with some sticky off-white head. Aromas of maple, honey sweetness, citrus and pine hops, and caramel malt. The addition of maple syrup adds a nice layer of sweetness to the familiar pine and tropical fruit of 60 and 90 minute IPAs.

Reynolds314 (2760) - Connecticut, USA - APR 10, 2012
I cant understand the high ratings for this beer. Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Aroma is malts, lemon, caramel. Taste is highly acidic and metallic with notes of lemon, copper, strange sweetness with a bitter alcohol finish. Not very good.

mikesaum (618) - Newark, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2012
Bottle, pours a honey hue with a thick pillowy off white head that leaves nice lacin as it fades to about a half inch. Aroma is kind of subtle, the hops are there, and a bit of caramel/toffee malt notes are there too but they aren’t too strong, no maple. The hops come through in the taste, no so much in bitterness, just in flavor, some citrus and pine notes, sweetness from the maple and the malts, but the maples flavor isn’t distinguished. Good brew, but I think burton baton has this beat.

reggiedunlop (3410) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2012
Pours a clear golden honey color with a huge white head...excellent retention and lacing. Aroma has nice floral hoppiness...earthy/spicy...with light caramel malt backing...very fresh aroma. Flavor follows suit...just a faint touch of maple sweetness but still good and bitter. Mouthfeel is medium/full and creamy with a well balanced leaning towards bitter finish. Fascinating...tastes/feels like cask out of the bottle...well done. Just about the best DFH beer ive had.

750, metallic and not very hoppy. Some odd sweetness in there that ill blame on the maple syrup. I can see how commoners would like this.

A very good IPA. Has a hazy golden cologne with a large pillowy head. The aroma has a nice sweetness to it with a bit a bitter hops. The flavor mimics the aroma with the sweetness up front and a bitter finish.
