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.

CanIHave4Beers (4141) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 30, 2012
750ml bottle at Cask Republic

Pours a hazy golden color with a medium tight white head and some nice lacing on the glass.

Herbal and citrus forward, lots of grapefruit, lots of hops, a little bug spray alcohol.

The flavor is very spicy and hoppy, mild pepper and caramel notes, not a lot of sweetness but this is not an especially "dry" beer, balanced (for an IPA) with favor largely given to the hops. A bit of alcohol and a good lot of citrus rind.

Wow, I sort of regretted my decision to order the bottle about the time the waitress was pouring the glass. But, I must say that I enjoyed this considerably more than any 60 or 90 minute (or Squall) bottle Ive had in the last five or six years. I had heard this was horribly sweet on cask, Im guessing that they had to ferment out some of that residual sugar to bottle condition this beer because it didnt come across as overly sweet (or really very sweet at all). This was basically exactly what I hoped it to be.

Bottle via trade through the broker. Thick white head, copper color, the hint of honey is not too strong.

Strykzone (6946) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2012
Sampled on dld eve. Hazy golden with a white head. Maple in the nose with floral hops and sweet malt. Maple is noted but hops are in the forefront here. They sre floral and nice but not huge. Not really that big but pretty good.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2012
Bottle. Nose is floral hops and light malt sweetness. Perfectly clear, bright gold with great head retention. Amazingly balanced for a blend of these two beers. None of the harshness of either. Mellowed, possibly from the extended aging? Medium bitterness with dominant floral and fruity hop notes. Almost gives a cask impression even in the bottle. Full bodied but soft on the palate.

douglas88 (8667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 24, 2012
Bottle thanks to Mike. Pours a clear copper color with a large, way too large head. A sweet rich fruity nose, some dust. A smooth, very sweet flavor, light candy and syrup, lemons and oranges, zesty at times. Very mellow. Very nice, smooth and tasty. Enjoyable and very flavorful.

bbbeer (773) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 24, 2012
Clear bubbly yellow-orange with shockingly large white head. Aroma piney and citrus hops. Medium bodied, somewhat creamy feel almost like a sparkling wine, fair amount of carbonation and no alcohol. Flavor strongly hoppy mostly of the piney and floral type, very small amount of malt and a tad of yeast. Not detecting the maple syrup. Very drinkable. A good solid IPA. Really memorable? Not so sure.

Bottle poured, deep hazy orange thick head, nose is hop forward with hints of vanilla, immediate bombardment of piney hops with a smooth finish where the syrup really shines through, soft on the palate and coats the mouth richly, a very smooth beer and its parents should be proud to blended into such a beautiful child

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 This will be my last "minute" IPA Ive tried from DFH. Very thick head, thick orange-amber color. Aroma of pine, some maple syrup and citrus-grapefruit. Taste was a little more maple-y and pine. Overall pretty good.

750 ml bottle that poured a dark orange colro, with a thick white head that took for ever to die down. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, and a touch of maple syrup. Flavor is the same, mostly pne and sugary maple syrup. Not an overly bitter aftertaste.

My #300! Mild hop aroma for this warm bronze blend. A subtle indication of whats to come... 75 minute enhances the best parts of 60 and 90. Sweet fruity hoppy punch has a nice kick but proves somewhat sessionable. The maple syrup was a brilliant play here and really takes this beer to the next level. Nice bitter finish offsets the sweetness. Lives up to it reputation.
