Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA

It’s that time again, another new Dogfish Head release you’re going to hear about for the next month until the next wild one. This one is actually tame and a non exotic style for once which is a nice change. 75 Minute IPA has been something those who have gone to the brewpub have had the pleasure of drinking for a while now. Basically you take a 50/50 mixture of 60 and 90 Minute IPA and voila. I say basically because the store version is that but conditioned with maple syrup. What this creates is a nice balanced beer with best of both worlds.

First off I want to talk about the pour, which is incredibly active despite a careful pour creating a huge head, this picture is actually 5 minutes after the initial pour so be careful. The aroma was a blocked by the thick head and it wasn’t until after it cleared that I was able to pick out a semi-sweet mixture of slight maple, citrus and pine, nice balance here and pleasant to smell. The taste matches the flavor pretty well and I think it’s a nice step-up from the two parts. A slightly sweet malt base with slight maple makes for the beginning and end of this beer while a nice slightly forward citrus and pine hops middle balances this out with an odd progression that’s very easy to drink.

I normally buy every new Dogfish Head beer at least once and I know most people do as well, for $9 a bottle though this is a beer I recommend highly at least once. To make things better I recommend finding some maple bacon cheddar and pairing it as it accents the maple in the beer while the 75 Minute does a good job cutting through the cheddar.
