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.

No shortage of foam on the pour, heavily carbonated, nice large head as well, very foamy. Well hopped, lacking a bit of the intensity I was expecting, a bit more watered down than I would have thought on the hop end, but still a good beer, very drinkable, very sessionable, awesome for summer. Interesting bc you really can taste the qualities of both the 60 and 90 minutes in the beer.

Capped 750 from Half Time. Pours light golden amber with a 3 finger creamy white head. Aroma is light pitted fruit. Med+ body. Flavor is citrus, light pitted fruit and mild roast malt with a little hint of maple. Guess Im weak on maple. For me this is dry and hoppy. Finishing that way - though there did seem to be a maple hit for a second or less. This is really good for me. Im getting a little nutty post-finish thing in my mouth. Or maybe not.

For me, this one is a case of the whole not equaling more than the sum of the parts. Love the 60min and 90min (and many others) from DFH, but this one was a little disappointing. The biggest negative to me was the the heavy, syrupy mouth feel. I dont understand why it feels thicker in some ways than 90min. Agree with many that the maply addition is nice. But I cant see myself buying more of this, whereas I do regularly buy 60, 90, and even 120 (when its around).

tons of maple aroma. Golden orange with tons of creamy head. Smooth flavor. Maple isnt trying to hide but neither are the hips. Fantastic head retention

jcos (1786) - Maryland, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle in April/May 2012, have had 3 times.

Appearance: Pours a gold haze, always a bit fizzy when poured.
Aroma: Citrus hop, faint mapple
Taste: Medium bitterness, balanced.
Palate:Medium light body.

Summary: I enjoyed this but not as much as I had hoped I would, cant say why.

mixmasterob (1054) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Bottle from Dunwoody Bev. Tough to find this one. Deep golden pour with a huge fluffy white head. Seemed over carbed but overall it wasn't. Just a huge head. Aroma was sweet and citrusy, lots of caramel among the hops. Deep undertones of sweet pine. Flavors had some caramel notes, good bit of citrus with a nice dry finish. Its easy to see the 60 and 90 coming into play. Carbonation a bit higher than standard. Medium bodied. Not something I'd go after again but fun to try.

Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle, from Standard Market. I am way in the minority on this beer. I love DFH but there really isnt a whole lot that is special about this one, plus the carbonation is way over the top which detracts from the flavor quite a bit, ie, hard to taste any nuance with pins and needles in your mouth. I do like the subtly sweet finish from the maple syrup. Standard grapefruit hop aroma and flavor.

Theres something about its bottle-conditioning that really makes this beer well-carbonated and hard to hold down its enormous head from forming an obelisk above the rim of your glass. All the time in the bottle left not only this healthy carbonation, but also a little colony of yeast sediment on the bottom of the bottle - something you dont normally see in a Dogfish Head bottle. Lighter in appearance than youd think if youre used to the 60 or 90, its muted, pale orange in color, sporting a healthy, billowy white head. The aroma is very much addictive. The kind of beer that makes it hard to put the glass to my lips because it smells that good. The sweetness of crystal malts pair well with the dark earthiness of maple. It smells full and dense, making you think its going to be heavy in the mouth. As soon as it enters your mouth, however, its actually much lighter in body. Theres a yeasty quality about this beer thats almost Belgian in style, thanks Im sure in part to the yeast thats also to blame for making this beer so well-carbonated. Much lighter in body than the 60 or 90, the 75 Minute IPA sports a slightly greener palate while keeping the bitterness and hop boldness at a minimum. What you get is a well-crafted, complex, unique, light-bodied and easy to drink ale with a light but potent hop presence that permeates the palate from lips to finish. It has the classiness and complexity of a double IPA while under the guise of a bold IPA. The best of both worlds.

baraciisch (2957) - California, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Actually had this in a bottle in Vegas, although Ive been drinking this mix at the Dogfish Head Alehouse in Gaithersburg for several years... Actaully tastes like a blend of the 60 and 90 in the bottle.... Sweetness and syrupy flavor of the 90 but dryness of the 60 minute.... Pretty nice beer...

Bottle split with mora2000 at the Holy Grail. Pours with a hazed golden body with a massive, lasting white head with incredible lace, good retention, rings and rings of lace. Great looking beer. Aromas are herbal, honey, maple, dry, floral, citrus, hops, spice, mildly bready, and biscuity malt. Herbal and grassy hop character. Flavors are of honey, some biscuity malt, nicely balanced hop character, floral, citrus, grapefruit. Hoppy. Medium to livelier bubbles, dry, fuller bodied. East Coast.
