750 ml. Pours orange with a huge head. Aroma and flavor is a citrus bomb, grapefruit and orange. Pine notes also behind the subtle maltiness. Long bitter lingerness on tongue. Great IPA!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a deep orange color with a huge white foamy stable head. Very nice aroma with citrus and sweet malts. Lemons and some pine as well. Taste has lots of sweet caramel and maple notes with a good amount of citrus hops. The balance is just about perfect. Very crisp with a sweet maple syrup finish. Carbonation is a little much. Overall very nice, almost as good as the 90 minute.

Bottle. A golden color with a nice white head. A nice toasty and light grapefruit aroma with a light jam / maple finish. A sweet maple finish with a less assertive hop bite than I expected.

Smooth as silk. The best of the Minute IPAs. Has a mild hoppy aftertaste. The only downside is the $12-13 price per bottle.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy orange gold color, with a mild but pleasant aroma of hops and little malt. Flavor is relatively dry and clean, crisp malt with a balance of fairly uninteresting hop bitterness. This is a very balanced IPA, which is it’s strength, but it lacks much of interest. I do not get maple syrup in this at all. Good on it’s own terms, but not one I need to come back to.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 Bomber. Citrus hops on the nose, maple is prevalent in the taste, but not overpowering. The best of the 60/75/90.
