Dogfish Head 75 minute IPA

A bottle-conditioned India Pale Ale with maple syrup

Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA

Mike knows I like IPA’s so he insisted I try this one…

And I have to say it was and cool and unique as its label!

There are 4 Dogfish Head IPA’s with various “minutes of continuous hopping” attached to their name, Two, the 60 Minute IPA and the 90 Minute IPA are produced year round and the 75 Minute IPA and 120 Minute IPA are seasonal.

The  75 Minute IPA  is a blend of the 60 minute and the 90 minute with the addition of maple syrup to aid in the aging.

Its smooth and deep with a little bit of darker ale taste, and all the richness and bright hops I needed on the rainy evening I tried it. Some stronger hopped IPAs taste like grapefruit juice with a shot of vodka, but this was subtler and more complex. Wonderful!

I’ll have to try the 120 minute IPA some time, maybe thats more a summer time brew?
