50/50 is close, but it's more 90 in there if you go the route of blending.

Dump half a 90/60 from a bottle in a glass. It doesn't taste like the 75min does in the bottle.
I'm doing a clone of this, and there's actually a YouTube video review from a beer club where Sam is in attendance. He says on the video that it's 50/50 of both. Whether that differs in the commercial product.....well who cares. I'd just blend 50/50 and forget about it. Also, the blend is then dry hopped additionally with Cascade, which may contribute to your differentiation of the 2 products, not to mention time for flavors to meld, etc. Mixing 2 bottles and immediately drinking is in no way the same.

Not only is the bottled version of 75 minute IPA dry hopped POST-BLENDING with whole leaf Cascade, it is bottled conditioned with maple syrup.

I've had both (bottle and firkin) and they are very different beers. The maple syrup adds a touch of sweetness and "velvety" mouthfeel.

Depending on which version you want to clone, you recipe WILL vary.
