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.

Firkin at Capones. Poured a medium amber color with not head. Aromas of floral hops & citrus / citrus rinds. Tastes of citrus, some caramel, and lighter floralness. The citrus became stronger as it warmed up and this one grew on me as I got through the glass.

"interesting take an ipa (though id hardly call it a double). maple syrup makes for a pleasing and unique bittersweet finish. different than the brandied fruitcake of the 90 minute, but similar...and this is a lighter beer. More aggressively hopped than 60, and bottle conditioned for a different, dryer feel. pretty nice...not sure its worth the extra coin more than very ocassionally over 60 or 90...or Squall."

shrubber85 (11023) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle. Orange malt and pine/grapefruit peel aroma. Hazy amber with large off-white head. Sweet orange/apricot malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Nice body.

hopscotch (10931) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle... Lightly-hazed amber ale with a large, fluffy, white head. Excellent retention. Dusty, grainy, musky aroma. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is acrid, earthy and medium bitter components I dont normally enjoy. However, a thoughtful hop bill and hopping schedule - along with a nice hint of maple wood - really sells me on this beer. Finishes mildly salty and modestly bitter with a whisper of sweet maple syrup. Im gonna be drinking more of this.

adnielsen (10580) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle @ Dans house. Hazy, golden orange appearance with a big, off white head. Rich piney, a bit sappy hoppy, somewhat spicy, caramelized aroma with hints of light citrus fruits. A bit syrupy, light maple, sappy, caramel, piney, orange citrusy hoppy flavor. Pretty easy drinking.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2012 Draft at CAH. Pours hazy orangy with off-white head. Nose is hopcitrus, tropical fruity, resiny, with peppery and caramel malt notes. Tastes very complex, with a big resiny hop flavor, tengarine, honeydew, black pepper, and some marmaladey sweetness. Well hidden alcohol, and this is as good as I figured it would be. Re-rate 25-Mar-2012. Bomber from RR St. Pours copper with frothy off-white head. Nose is piney hops, resiny, sticky, with caramel malt, hops, florals, and peppery flavors. Im kicking this down a bit because quite simply it doesn;t seem as good to me as either the 60 or the 90 separately. There is no synergism here, but rather this one seems less than the sum of its parts.
