Poured from a 750 mL. capped bottle (Bottled 2012) into a snifter glass.
A moderate pour yields a 2 1/2-finger head that puffs up quickly and fades slowly. Only after a good number of minutes does the head finally settle to a thick dusting and thick foam ring. The body is a translucent copper amber with a great amount of carbonation bubbles. Thick lacing clings to the glass in fluffy rings throughout carbonation.
Light grainy malts create a nice backbone for the grassy and floral hops aromas. Combined, the malt and hops give the nose a very earthy character. Just a hint of alcohol is also detectable but is well hidden by the other aromas.
The floral and grassy hops are the first flavors to strike the taste buds. Swishing the beer about reveals the grainy, bready malts and just a touch of sweet maple. Swallowing the beer allows a bitterness to come out of the hops flavors. A slight alcohol warmth finds a home in the back of the throat between sips.
The medium body allows the flavors to really present themselves but never becomes sticky or overly coating. The carbonation seems just right as the beer is held in the mouth. However, as the beer is swallowed, the carbonation causes an excessive foaming that detracts from the experience.

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.
