Dogfish Head "75 Minute IPA"
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery - Milton, Delaware USA
IPA (ABV 7.5%)

[Best served in a Tulip glass]

Rating: 3.8/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a hazy medium orange with a huge (3-4 finger) white frothy head that receded at a nice slow steady pace down to a few puddles with a large collar and produced some excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, pine and citrus hops and a soapy yeast with hints of maple, caramel and citrus (grapefruit).

The taste was moderately bitter with a slight malty maple sweetness early on and then became decently hoppy with a bitter citrus peel presence towards the end. The flavor lasted a good long while after the swallow, with a nice hoppy citrus taste along with a mild sweetness that was left to lie on the taste buds for a little while longer.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a moderately dry texture and almost prickly carbonation.

Overall this is an IPA that is not to overpowering, but does posses a nice sweet hoppiness and is very well balanced. Highly recommended...
