Loads of honey, caramel, and toffee in this...not what you want in an IPA. Mild citrus, evergreen, grapefruit pith and orange peel. Medium mouthfeel. Meh.

Really nice but honestly was expecting more hop punch from this. The honey and malt come through quite strong with the piney hops taking a back seat.

Very clean bitterness, long finish. Bottle pours a little hazy due to yeast sediment. Easy to drink. Palate is smooth. WIsh it was more complex. Overall good.

Clean hops with a real nice subtle maple finish. Full mouth feel not too heavy.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber to glass shaker. Pours a clear yellow with a thick white head that doesn’t dissipate. Light hop flavors, and medium dense mouthfeel. I was expecting something heavier. If this make sense, it seems to me to be lighter than that 60min. I can’t really taste any maple syrup as advertised. For the rarity, this gets a strong "meh"

Bottle from Khoury’s; clear amber pour, frothy white head, malt and honey aroma, as with the 60/90 great balance of malt and hop, citrus hop bite biscuity malt, heavy carbonation. Excellent IPA.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 I have to admit I’m a sucker for maple syrup in my stouts (like CBS) but I found out I’m also a sucker for it in IPAs if done right. This is a nice mix of 60/90 min IPA for the malty bitterness and the maple syrup cuts right through with a little sweetness and balance. Wonderful!

pours golden yellow with white head. aroma is light citrus hops. taste is primarily citrus hops and some tropical fruits with little to no bitterness - it’s well balanced by some creamy malt flavor. finishes with clover honey sweetness. exceeded my expectations - it’s very, very well done, and immediately one of my favorites.

750 bottle. Nice head which left a nice lacing on the glass. A strong piney, slight grapefruit aroma. Crisp, hoppy, and balanced. Only got the hint of sweetness once this beer warmed up a bit. A nice drinkable IPA.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Honey amber color in the glass with a massive head. The aroma has huge malts up front with some citrus and pine. Also some bread and a hint of sweetness. Taste has maltiness up front which leads the way with a touch of maple sweetness. Also some citrus on the finish. Great beer and well balanced.
