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.

Poured from a pint bottle. Pours with a nice, thick layer of head. Very hoppy aroma. The perfect amount of hop taste that signifies an IPA with a nice bitterness. The complexity of the maple syrup comes alive in the aftertaste. A very solid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2012 bottling with the Groucho Marx glasses and nose on Johnny - pours clearish with some haz, golden orange, with huge, magnificent, with white fluffy head, terrific retention and awesome lacing. Big bitter nose of orange, biting hops, nugs, darker piny resin, sweet malts, and touch of lemon pepper at the backbone. Evergreen. Taste is awesome as well. Nice mix of oily hops with zestier bittering hops at the finish. Oranges, citrus, floral and touch of vanilla at the finish. Medium palate, nice middle ground between the two brethren DFH. This is just right. Perhaps the best IPA. If only they made it right, year round, and in 4 or 6 packs. Killer.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Hazy, light, orangish brown. Aromas of grapefruit, lightly bruleed sugar, a slight toastiness and candied citrus. Flavors of candied citrus, bitter grapefruit and classic Dogfish bruleed sugar notes linger on the finish. Not as rich, full bodied and malty as the 90 minute.. Though a good balance of malt richness and bitter citrus hoppiness. Nice weight in mouth and fine carbonation. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Pours cloudy golden orange with pillowy white head. A dry hop presence on the nose- very earthy. A very balanced palate with dry earth flavors and a touch of citrus. Nice palate, rich and not over bittered.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2012 This beer is what I had hoped it would be; sessionable with more of a hop profile than 60 minute but not as sweet as 90 minute. The pour is a dark gold color with a huge fluffy off-white head. Citrus hops with grapefruit and lemongrass flavors, some herbal undertones, and a touch of pine toward the back end. I would have never had known maple was in this if I didnt read the description and Im still skeptical. At no time did I pick up that. Maybe its a shade too light/thin in the body but nothing to worry about. Crisp bitterness and refreshing, with some nice flavors makes this one a keeper. This is a pretty solid IPA and Im generally not a big fan of Dogfish Head.

Bomber---->snifter. Pours a dark straw witha huge fluffy white head and crazy lacing. Aroma is floral and sweet citrus. Taste is same as smell with a little sweet malt thrown in at the end. Palate is pretty smooth with good carbonation. Not sire why I was expecting more, but this one is just average.

Had the version bottle conditioned with maple syrup. Strong, very hoppy aroma definitely has a hint of maple as well as a citrus fruity touch. Pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick pale wheat head. Hoppy, lively flavor is more fruity than bitter and has a subtle maple syrup note but is not too sweet. Smooth texture has good body and fizz. Love the label on this version! Another winner from Dogfish Head.
