Bottle from City Beer. Pours amber with a thick white head and a citrus aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with a carbonated finish and just the right amount of bitterness.

Bottle. Orange golden with a big expanding white head. Aroma is lots of citrus , stone pine and some maple. Lots of bright citrus hop taste, with some caramel and maple syrup malt body. Really nice balanced beer that might be the best of the minutes series. Very drinkable, had no problem crushing a 750.

Bottle. This might be my favorite of the Dogfish "minute" IPA’s. The label pretty much says it all. Not too big, not too small. Citrus hop scent, perfume, sweet caramel. Foamy white head over a very carbonated, bubbly bronze pour. Medium body, tiny fizz feel, slightly syrupy finish. Citrus hop flavor, sweet sugary note on the finish kind of like an orange slice candy. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mild grassy hop aroma, the maple is not noticeable. It pours a clear light amber with an over the top white head. Interesting flavor, with leafy hop notes, and a lingering bitter finish. Light on the palate, with a touch of slickness. Not a bad beer, although I don’t think it will be a go to beer for me.

At the Alehouse in Falls Church. Golden with little head. Not much aroma. Taste is a nice mix of floral and citrusy hops. Dry with a nice carb.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and piney hops, a good amount of caramel malts, and maple syrup. Flavor the same, with some spiciness and lots of syrup. Average texture. A really good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Tiffany’s , Kalamazoo MI. Thick hazy tan gold pour. A few inches of very dense white head on top. Scent is subtle pineapple and pine hops. Light or medium body with medium carbonation. Hop- forward taste but in a huge blend of hop flavors. Coppery taste (I mean that to be positive), also pine hop flavor. Don’t really sense the impact of maple syrup. Finish is shockingly clean and sweet, lavender and honey taste is left with a hint of dryness but very little bitter. I like 90 minute more.
