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.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2010
2010-12-03. Hazy dark amber with a tiny head that fades. 3+ Flavour has a sharp citrus bitterness up front, sweetness in the middle before a sharp finish. Mild alcohol throughout. I did not really get any maple character out of it. 7+ Aroma is alcoholic at first, modest hops, muted sweet citrus. 7+ Smooth average plus bodied palate. Decent, but not what I had hoped. Cask at Cole’s, Buffalo

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2009
Cask (handpump) at the White Horse American Beer Festival, July 2009. Amber colour. Slightly clammy, verging on locker room sweat, aroma but loads of nice hop. Classic leafy, perfumed hop stuff. Sweetish but tasty with a good bite on the finish. Not quite up to the 90 Minute in my eyes but still a nice drop.

Benzai (7226) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ Deans Winter Shelter Tasting. Hazy orange color, medium sized white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, nicely hoppy, nicely fruity and nicely bitter. Medium body, medium carbonation. Really nice!

Meilby (7210) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle 750ml @ Hotel Room, Fairfield Inn, Placentia, CA
Pours hazy deep golden with a huge off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, orange, citrus and pine. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a fruity finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 8, 2012
750ml bottle: Pours a clear bright golden with an airy froth of white head. Has a fresh piny hop nose with some light citrus and pale malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and lightly toasted crystal malty sweetness with a healthy dose of hop resin and bitter balance before a drier crisp bittersweet finish. Dangerously drinkable, but wish it were available in 6 packs.

A Mes rate: cask handpull at the Sloany Pony.
Johnny cask, what a great name! Light orange brown and just about holding onto a thin white film. Excellent aroma. Fruity as hell with some really good U.S. hoppage as you would expect but the slight caramel and maple adds intrest and complexity. Possibly a little less excitement in the mouth but that could quite possibly be down to the conditioning at the Pony, plus cask beers tend not to travel the Atlantic too well. All that is great about the aroma is here but it doesn’t sit quite so well. A little hot and slightly astringent but an enjoyable experience. To sum it up, good stuff but the some is not greater than its parts.

crossovert (6941) - Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2012
750 ml bottle shared with my buddies. It pours a hazy golden orange with a frothy yellowish white head. The smell is mostly malty. There is a nice grapefruit tinge but mostly pleasant grains and some caramel. The flavor is nice. A mixture of really good malts and a good bit of hops. I am not a fan of the 60 but not the 90, this one is better than either. A nice one.

bb (6784) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle. Amber beer with a whitish head. Grapefruit and pine aroma. Pine and grapefruit flavor with earthiness. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Pine and earth linger with light woodsiness and grapefruit.

Ibrew2or3 (6768) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2013
750mL bottle pours with a clear deep gold body supporting a tall light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a good bit of tangelo to orange to grapefruit citrusy hops with a light degree of pine along the edges. Beneath the hop aromatics I get a mild almost vanilla like sweetness. The taste has bitter and modestly resiny pine hops along with ribbons of citrus hop flavor that rolls into some bitter citrus to midway and into the finish.

Pouring at Get Real NY. Pours a just clear orange gold with a thin white head. Big earthy citrus, malt, and touches of booze. Big hops. Smooth caramel and fruit, chewy tropical fruit, malt and caramel. Smooth, sweet bitterness. Surprisingly good, and a lot better than I had been expecting.
