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.

Bottle. A cloudy golden beer with a huge white head. Aroma is hops, mostly floral, and a good amount of maple. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, with more maple syrup coming through. Bitter, sweet maple finish. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Good.

Aroma was a little thin...some hop presence, light notes of maple syrup, really expected more hop. Solid malt backbone with a nice citrus and pine hip flavor, light subtle maple notes. Khaki head atop a gorgeous golden amber body.

Pours a four finger white head that stays leaving a good lace. hazy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Grapefruit hop nose and flavor is grapefruit hops that are mellowed by the maple syrup. Higher ABV is hidden. Light bitter aftertaste. $8.59 for a 750ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

Cask. Hazy orange with a creamy off-white head. Citrusy hop aroma, caramel sweetness. Flavor is sweet but balanced nicely by strong bitterness. Not as upfront hoppy as the 60 and not as sweet as the 90. Sits nicely in-between the two. Creamy on the palate.

Lucky enough to find a bottle of this on the shelf at Whole Foods in short pump. Poured a slightly hazed golden copper with large offwhite head. Not nearly as pungent on the hops department as I would have expected, but then again, it was aged on maple syrup. And from that, there is definitely a large dosing of maple syrup sweetness and residual sugars that compliment the citrusy/floral hop profile quite nicely. No alcohol burn as I’ve experienced from time to time with the 90 minute. Velvety and a bit chewy on the body. Very solid and one of my more favorite rarities from DFH.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUN 6, 2012
(750 ml from Global Beverage) Pours hazy gold/light-amber. Enormous rocky off-white head on each pour. Aroma of citrus-grapefruit, light pine, vanilla, maple and caramel and something off-putting (slight rotten/sour/egg/dishrag). Mouthfeel a bit light, slightly pebbly. Lots of broken, foamy lacing left behind. Flavor of pine/grapefruit/citrus over caramel, vanilla and maple. A little strange, really strays from IPA character and no match for either 60 or 90 Minute.

Waited a while for this one! Pours a hazy orange with a nice off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, and a very sweet Vanilla. Medium body, with a bittersweet flavor. Very smooth, finishes mildly dry and sweet. Overall very nice , worth the wait, VERY drinkable!

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium orange with a huge (3-4 finger) white frothy head that receded at a nice slow steady pace down to a few puddles with a large collar and produced some excellent sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, pine and citrus hops and a soapy yeast with hints of maple, caramel and citrus (grapefruit). The taste was moderately bitter with a slight malty maple sweetness early on and then became decently hoppy with a bitter citrus peel presence towards the end. The flavor lasted a good long while after the swallow, with a nice hoppy citrus taste along with a mild sweetness that was left to lie on the taste buds for a little while longer. Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a moderately dry texture and almost prickly carbonation. Overall this is an IPA that is not to overpowering, but does posses a nice sweet hoppiness and is very well balanced. Highly recommended...

Standard pour but with a crazy thick head and tempting aroma. Balanced taste without an overpowering of maple and very dry and smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells pretty good. Looks great. Very bubbly, with a bit of creaminess appearance almost. A bubbly and lofty yet slight cream mouthfeel as well. This is pretty darn good. Even more enjoyable than the 90 perhaps.
