4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, 2012 bottling. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 3 finger dense off white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Very nice dense soapy lacing clings to the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, pine, lemon, herbal, floral, grass, caramel, bread, light maple, and light piney spiciness. Excellent aromas with great balance and hop complexity. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, pine, lemon zest, caramel, bread, herbal, floral, grass, earth, toast, maple, and piney spiciness. Good amount of piney bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pine, caramel, bread, toast, herbal, floral, grass, earth, maple, and spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice hops flavor complexity and balance; awesome malt/hop bitterness balance; zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, slick, sticky, and very crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent IPA! Great hop complexity and malt flavor balance with the maple syrup; extremely smooth and crisp to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering as I expected.

Aroma is citrus and a touch of maple, taste is a caramel malts, citrus hops, and maple if I look for it, this is fine, but cost is a little higher than I would like to pay for this

Hazy orange-yellow with a big, white head. The aroma has citrus and light pine mixed with syrup and a touch of apricot. It has a medium body with silky smooth texture and good carbonation. The taste bittersweet with a sweeter finish. The high alcohol is there, but well hidden.

Catching up on some old ratings from Untappd -- First rated on 19 Jan 2014. Pretty good, not sure if it’s better than Community’s Mosaic.

This beer had a little too much maple on the nose for me, I was nervous.
The taste was pretty damn excellent. I am a huge fan of DFH’s 90 and I enjoy the 60 time to time and the 75’s maple taste adds something that puts it on a level closer to 90 minute.
There is a complexity and balance in this which gives it more character than many IPAs in its price range, and the slight maple touch sets it apart from anything else I can recall in this style

HUGE white foamy suds. Clear golden color. Strong hoppy aroma at the bottle and a bit sweeter in the glass. Strong carbonation and heavy weight on the palate. Fruity aftertaste.
