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.

ChainGangGuy (4420) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 5, 2012
750ml bottle - $7.99 at Total Wine & More in Atlanta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pour gently. No, gentler than that. Iím telling you, you need to--great, thatís just great -- hazed, burnished gold body with a tall, long-lasting head stand of off-white foam.

Smell: Slices and slivers off fresh mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and sweet oranges atop sensibly-toasted biscuits marked by notes of resins, grasses, florals, and a little bit of maple.

Taste: Sweet touches of caramel and even maple paired with toasted bread, toasted biscuits. Itís a brief malty meet-and-greet, you know, a few handshakes, hellos, then, itís off to the tropical, vibrantly fruity hops cut with some floral, resinous tones. Slight grassiness. Medium-plus bitterness. Slight hint of the alcohol. Small revival of the initial sweetness before the fruity, bittersweet finish thatís just nice and sudsy from the carbonation.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Very slight viscous oiliness to the mouthfeel. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: I rather enjoyed myself. Delightful array of hop flavors smoothed with that little hint of maple and the vigorous carbonation is very effective at keeping things moving along nicely.

PorterPounder (5697) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2012
Tallahassee, FL - Liquor Loft - 750 ml capped bottle. Pours a cloudy dark orange with an omni-thick white puffy head. Aroma has some sweet light spruce notes, brief floral accents. Flavor is full-bodied, smooth and delicious with tangy citrus grapefruit notes, some cake mix sweetness, some mellow apricot notes, some maple syrup maltiness permeates in the back end to balance it out. Nice thick mouthfeel. This one is done right.

DialSquare (2908) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2012
750ml bottle from Liquor Loft. Have had the unofficial tap mix before, but first time Iíve tried the proper one. Gold pour with a huge frothy off-white head and lots of stick. Pine hops and caramel malts in the aroma. Tastes are citrus, caramel, honey, resin, pine, orange peel, and wood. Good - hard to place without a 60 or 90 right next to it - but on itís own is a big tasty ipa.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2012
The pour is a hazy, copper color with a massive, white, fluffy head which settles to a rocky, creamy layer and leaves thick, patchy yeast. The nose is woodsy, light pineapple, pine, some light mint, a molasses note, and some earth. The flavor is similar with still the woody and pine notes, some maple, light caramel, faint roast emerging, pink grapefruit, and a light pineapple note. The palate is drying, lightly creamy, less than lively, and medium to full. The finish is lightly roasty, faint maple, still woodsy, and the pineapple note still. The bitterness is just between the 60 and 90 but the complexity and uniqueness is more than both. The maple and dry aging really adds something different from the original beers. The drying was a bit much at times and the nose was a bit subdued, but overall it was a nice beer.

Mora2000 (5855) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2012
The beer pours a hazy orange color with a large white head. The aroma is a mix of grass, apricots and orange from the hops, as well as some biscuit malt. The flavor has a great mix of hops, with some orange and pine, as well as some apricot and mango notes. There is also a little bit of sweetness from the toffee and biscuit malt, which keep the bitterness fairly low. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very easy to drink.

Pours slightly hazy burnt orange color with huge off white head. Almaís of toasted malts, citrus and bread. Grapefruit and orange flavors with some toasted malts. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

legion242 (2267) - Richardson, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2012
Poured a cloudy light brown with an unstoppable head- really one of the most impressive I have seen in a long time. Nicely balanced considering where it comes from!

Swillbur (62) - Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2012
Split into two chalices to share with my wife. Pours a nice honey gold color with huge pillows of head that stay around for a while. Great lacing. Smells of grapefruit and honey. Nice flavors of caramel, citrus and honey. Not getting the maple at all but still very tasty. I could drink this often, better then 60 or 90 IMO.
