750ml bottle purchased for $9.99 at Wegmans in Downingtown, PA. Bottled on date only listed as "bottled in 2012", and then what looks like a time stamp of 11:50. Not super helpful, but whatever. Pours a moderately hazy light copper color, with strawberry blonde hues when held up to the light. A little over 2 fingers of bright white head hangs around for a while before receding to a cap and leaves nice patches of lace.
A lot of dank, herbal pine in the nose, accompanied by some grapefruit rind, slight pineapple, and some sweet malts. Not really getting any maple syrup in the nose, but still a great smelling IPA.
Some juicy citrus hops greet the palette at first, with mostly grapefruit and grapefruit rind with a little mango, then some sweet caramel malts in the middle of the tongue before finishing off with a nice, healthy dose of piney bitterness that is cut by some faint maple syrup sweetness. A little, almost tart-like pineapple is noticeable in the finish as well. Still not getting as much maple syrup as I'd hoped for, but definitely much more noticeable in the taste than the smell.
Medium bodied with crisp carbonation and a bittering, dry finish. Smooth. The hops linger for a little in the mouth, but aren't overbearing.
This is very, very good stuff here, folks. I would have liked just a tad more maple syrup, but the rest of the beer is a super solid IPA, borderline dIPA territory with the heady hop profile. The more I drink unfiltered IPA's, the more I'm coming to realize that that is where the flavor I want is. Grab it if you can.

Pours a cloudy brownish straw color with two fingers of head that enjoyed a lengthy period of retention and left intricate lace behind. The nose is slightly citrusy. The flavor profile is also citrusy with some hops and a slight trace of maple sweetness on the finish.
I really like DFH 60 and I love DFH 90 – I guess that you can’t simply meet in between.
