3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) My offering for the 25th anniversary dinner. A good all-around IPA but seem to fall a bit short of the hype.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden colour with a creamy white head. Aroma smells a little of apricots and peaches with some slight floral notes and a little maple syrup. Taste is mildly sweet throughout with a nice bitterness that is not too strong. Medium body, smooth on the palate, and livelier carbonation. Overall a good IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dégustée après 9 mois. Manque de fraicheur évident. Robe brune-orangée avec de massives particules croulantes au fond du verre. Arômes de malt vieillit, pamplemousse, citron et eau d’érable. En bouche, malt caramélisé, érable subtil, orange, pamplemousse. On sent tout suite que le liquide manque de fraîcheur. Pas mauvaise mais à réessayer dans un meilleur contexte.

Light gold color with a massive head even after a gentle pour and globs of lacing. Smells of caramel and citrus. Great flavors and balance with a slight sweetness. Creamy, smooth, and highly carbonated allowing a pleasant mouthfeel. Great IPA that is easy to drink and highly recommended!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From 24oz bottle to snifter. Pour is a deep haxy yellow with a thick white head. Nose is super hoppy, alcohol, piney, floral. Taste is medium-heavy, very bitter with touches of sweetness coming through. Awesome mouthfeel, finishes very crisp. Unreal ipa

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer pours a hazy golden orange color, with a lot of sediment floating around, with a thick creamy white head that stuck around and left some great lacing around the glass. This beer is heavily carbonated and has lots of streaming bubbles coming up the glass. The aroma reminds me of the 60 and 90 min ipa’s. I pick up pine, citrus, hop resin, and quite a bit of sweetness which I am assuming is from the maple syrup. In the taste, I pick up some citrus up front that leads into some bitter pine hops and resin oil. I pick up the maple syrup towards the end and in the aftertaste. I was expecting this to be more of a hop bomb but its not, I was quite surprised. The maple syrup really sweetens out the beer. This beer is very tasty and very well balanced, I’m really enjoying it. The mouthfeel is on the medium side and drinkability is super high. I highly recommend anyone to try this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A Christmas present from Maxbier. Pours cloudy bronze color with a huge thick foamy off white head that rises 2 inches above the glass. You can tell it’s bottle conditioned from the pop sound the bottle makes when opened. Sweet caramel malty aroma with yeasty bready flavor and a earty pine hop finish. Thick sweet malty start with the earthy maple syrup flavor. Finishes with a nice pine hopiness. The sweetness from the maple syrup really balances out the hops. Really nice! Cheers to Maxbier!

Prefer tap to bottle which does not maintain flavor. Just had a pour at Uno’s in Maple Shade. I’ve had better but I love this beer and have since 2011.
