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.

This beer was ok but expectations not met. Seemed like less hop aroma than 60 or 90; did not appreciate maple; attractive pour with bottle-conditioned haze; taste rich and malty with underrepresented hop presence IMO. Again, ok.

750 mL bottle. This is a good beer. Dont specifically get maple in the aroma (or flavour), but it does smell sweeter than the 60 or 90. What it brings to the aroma is balance. And what it brings to the mouthfeel is body. This is better than either of its parent beers, because it is more interesting. A shame it isnt more common.

pours a hazy orange color with a lively off white head. aroma is a nice bouquet of citrus hops. taste is strong citrus and piney hops with a nice sweetness that i would think comes from the maple syrup conditioning. a little dry tasting but not bad. very tasty brew

Pours a dark copper brown with a big off white frothy head. Aroma is sweet maple syrup and earthy hops. Taste is a solid earthy hop bitterness coupled with sweet caramel malts and maple syrup. An interesting combination.

75 cl bottle @ Hotel room, Las Vegas.
Pours hazy golden color with large head. Aroma of hops, fruits, mild grass and goose berry bush. Flavor of fruits, caramel, mild yeast, pale malts and some hops. Quite mellow, could have been a bit hoppier.

Aroma has biscuits, hay and hints of fruits. Flavour has bready malt, some citrus, mandarin and hints of resin. A bit too bready but decent anyway.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Pours a hazy, dark golden orange color with yellowish-orange hues and a massive 2.5/3 finger, frothy white head that very slowly settles into a lasting cap. Chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Sweet yet earthy aroma with some grassy pine and sweet malt notes. The sweetness of the syrup and malts take away from the hops. Hint of caramel, toffee, nut and sweet maple. Too malt forward for my preference. Medium bodied with some tight carbonation and subtle signs of infection. Balance of dry and sweet notes. Dry bitterness with some earthy/soily notes that get overpowered by malt profile and maple. Hints of toffee, caramel hazelnut and syrup. Too malty and sweet with little to no interesting hop flavor.

Scored a bottle in Boston. Very cloudy orange, with a big, pillowy head. Really nice nose -- juicy citrus, a shade of pine, with a biiiig caramel backbone showing a bit of that maple. Flavor is very full -- a caramel-backed thick IPA up front, with a burst of bitter citrus hops surging like a wave toward the finish. At the very end, it fades into that smooth maple -- really, really nice
