3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle served in a DFH IPA glass. Bottled late 2012.
A: Pours a solid amber color with dark yellow highlights in the base. A thick, off-white head forms on the pour and recedes slowly to a thick cap. Tons of sticky lace are left down the glass.
S: Flowery, almost perfume-like, with a leafy herbal like quality to it. Some grapefruit rind with a little bready maltiness to it. Light sugary, maple sweetness to it on the back end as well.
T: Bitter herbal hops, some nice bursts of citrus and a little grapefruit rind as well. The finish has a little pine, oat malts and a little sugary sweetness.
M: Medium bodied with a medium high carbonation level. The texture isnít chewy, but slightly creamy and not as crisp as a normal IPA. Still easy drinking with nice residual hop bitterness that lingers.
O: This was very solid and Iíd probably put it at number three behind 60 and 90 minute. Iím glad I got a chance to try this and itís a must try for any IPA fan.

Nice citrus, caramel, and very slight pine. Nice amber color. Nice balance to this beer. Bitterness is offset by the maple syrup nicely. Overall really nice beer.

Bottle pours cleanly with nice hazy coppery orange, little head. Smells caramel malty, subtle floral hoppiness and boozy. Tastes like slight pine needles, pleasant malty presence, little orange peel, chronic flowers, little cedar flavor nice crisp clean finish.

Bottle:   Dirty orange, hazy, huge fluffy off-white head, nice lacing.   Somewhat of a musty hoppy nose.   Seems straight forward.   Citrus based hoppiness on the tongue.   Nothing really to write home about.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Finishes slight sweet, silghtly hoppy, not too bitter.   Just a solid example of a clean well executed IPA.

Pours a clear orange-amber with a white head. Slightly oxidized aroma with slight maple malt and citrus. Massive bitterness and citrus hops on the taste. Maple and malt lend a nice backbone, without the maple being too pronounced. This is a well built beer.

This is an amazing blend! The maple syrup comes through in the nose and right up front. Great head retention. Bitter and sweet. Overall fantastic.

Bomber. Pours a hazy orange with monstrous white head, had to wait a bit for it to settle. Taste is nice balance of hops and maltiness, has a sweetness to it with some honey, citrus.
