COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Johnny Cask has entered the building! Weve 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 wont 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.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 I have to admit Im a sucker for maple syrup in my stouts (like CBS) but I found out Im also a sucker for it in IPAs if done right. This is a nice mix of 60/90 min IPA for the malty bitterness and the maple syrup cuts right through with a little sweetness and balance. Wonderful!

pours golden yellow with white head. aroma is light citrus hops. taste is primarily citrus hops and some tropical fruits with little to no bitterness - its well balanced by some creamy malt flavor. finishes with clover honey sweetness. exceeded my expectations - its very, very well done, and immediately one of my favorites.

750 bottle. Nice head which left a nice lacing on the glass. A strong piney, slight grapefruit aroma. Crisp, hoppy, and balanced. Only got the hint of sweetness once this beer warmed up a bit. A nice drinkable IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Honey amber color in the glass with a massive head. The aroma has huge malts up front with some citrus and pine. Also some bread and a hint of sweetness. Taste has maltiness up front which leads the way with a touch of maple sweetness. Also some citrus on the finish. Great beer and well balanced.

750 ml. bottle- Pours slightly hazy golden with a nice two finger fluffy white head. The aroma is strong hops, resinous, piney, I dont have to even put my nose to the glass to smell them, if there is maple syrup it is overpowered by the hops. The taste is also resinous piney bitter hops, there is a strong malt backbone, I do get the maple mostly in the aftertaste, its like a wallop of bitterness then a hint of sweetness that follows through the finish. Body is medium, carbonation is kind of high. Overall I liked this, was possibly hoping for more, but was good.

poisoneddwarf (2476) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - DEC 20, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge off-white head with excellent retention; leaves decorative lacework. Aroma is grapefruity, apples and the maple syrup comes through fairly strong. Unfortunately, the maple syrup doesnt come through as strong in flavor; this tastes like an underwhelming straight IPA for the most part. Doesnt taste too fresh. Highly carbonated with a creamy mouthfeel. Even with these gripes, this still aint too bad.

TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Bomber from McGees. Hazy, orange-gold pour with a rocky white head and leaving heavy lace. Nose is balanced, some malt and some pine hops. Medium body and moderate, fine carbonation. Pine, caramel, walnuts and faint maple. Finish is quite dry and resinous. A choice balance between 60 and 90, with some extras thrown in the mix.
