Dogfish Head’s “75 Minute” IPA

What do you get when you add one great IPA to another great IPA? That should be a no brainer. Blending beers is something that has been around forever. Have you ever blended two beers together to make something new? Anyone who has enjoyed a Black and Tan has. Chocolate beers and fruit beers tend to blend well. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. Ok, last question… What does 60 Minutes + 90 Minutes equal? …75?
Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales75 Minute” IPA is a blend of their “60 Minute” and “90 Minute” IPAs. It has been dry hopped with whole leaf hops, and then bottle conditioned with maple syrup. It pours a three finger white pillowy head that lasts to the bottom of the glass. The color is a hazy golden orange. The aroma is sweet and earthy with caramel, citrus hops, vanilla, maple, malt and grass. Upfront the taste is a mix of citrus, grassy and piney hops, followed by a nice caramel malty backbone. The maple syrup translates clearly as well. The mouthfeel is medium, and the finish is dry and bitter with a bit of heat from the 7% abv. Otherwise the abv is barely detectable. This is a very nice and well rounded IPA. It delivers maple and malt sweetness along with citrusy, grassy, and piney hops. What’s not to like? This brew def lives up to it’s reputation. Here’s to Good Beers!
