Bottle. Reddish yellow in color with thick bubbly white head that lingers. Odd tart flavor balanced by the hop presence. Sweetness from the maple.

Interesting beer. The taste is way better than the aroma. I was getting a garlic kind of deli pickle smell here initially. That went away and got a lot of syrup sweetness which makes sense. Not much of anything else on the aroma for me. The taste though is a whole different story. Lots of sweetness from the syrup which is actually perfect here. It just works. Lots of hop bitterness but the balance is great and it’s awesome stuff.

Strong foamy head, bittersweet aroma, rich appearance, IPA flavor with a good blend of maple syrup flavor for sweetness, well done, could easily have overdone the maple, burps are delicious

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2014 I like the maple syrup. The beer does not venture much away from the dogfish formula. It really just tastes like a stronger 60 min ipa but I appreciate The sweetness burst that the syrup imbued. It?s not worth chasing after the beer for just that. A bit more hoppy than youd expect but not by much.

I didn’t care for this a ton. Half snifter pour of amber with decent head, but nose was sharp and malted mostly. Some hops but not a ton. Flavor was similar, nothing really spectacular about it. Better luck next time.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Almost clear golden liquid with medium to huge white head. Aroma of tangerine, citrus, bread, flowers, mango, maple and grapefruit. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of mango, tangerine, citrus and maple syrup. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Too sweet.

Pours a cloudy gold, with ample white head. Aroma of complex hops. Taste is hoppy and rich, slightly sweet. I can’t really taste the maple, but it blends in and enhances the complexity. Although IPAs are not my favorite variety, this one is quite good. Thumbs up.

Crazy over carbonated. Nice, pillowy head, but tons and tons of it. Year+ old bottle so maybe a bit of that maple syrup hit a second/third fermentation or something. Appearance took a hit from 5 pint glasses this produced slowly pouring this as much as possible. Aroma also took a hit b/c this much carbonation skewed it. Beer is pretty tasty. Maple isn’t really there but there is a nice sweetness to balance the bitterness (which there is a lot of).

Bottle thanks to my friend Johnny for sharing: Poured a cloudy with huge white head. Sweet malts and nice hops. Mellowed hops, with sweet malts and maple backbone.

Another minute IPA from a brewery that will brew any style, type or collaboration of beer. I personally cannot tell the difference between this beer and the 60 or 90 except for the ABV.
