3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2012 This beer is what I had hoped it would be; sessionable with more of a hop profile than 60 minute but not as sweet as 90 minute. The pour is a dark gold color with a huge fluffy off-white head. Citrus hops with grapefruit and lemongrass flavors, some herbal undertones, and a touch of pine toward the back end. I would have never had known maple was in this if I didnít read the description and Iím still skeptical. At no time did I pick up that. Maybe itís a shade too light/thin in the body but nothing to worry about. Crisp bitterness and refreshing, with some nice flavors makes this one a keeper. This is a pretty solid IPA and Iím generally not a big fan of Dogfish Head.

Bomber---->snifter. Pours a dark straw witha huge fluffy white head and crazy lacing. Aroma is floral and sweet citrus. Taste is same as smell with a little sweet malt thrown in at the end. Palate is pretty smooth with good carbonation. Not sire why I was expecting more, but this one is just average.

Bottle. Pours a deep, thick cheddar orange with a huge flippiní white head. Nose is grapefruit, orange peel, pine, rose, and new carpet. Flavor is garpefruit pulp, orange juice, rose, and light biscuit. Decent mouthfeel. Thereís maple syrup in this??? Where?

Had the version bottle conditioned with maple syrup. Strong, very hoppy aroma definitely has a hint of maple as well as a citrus fruity touch. Pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick pale wheat head. Hoppy, lively flavor is more fruity than bitter and has a subtle maple syrup note but is not too sweet. Smooth texture has good body and fizz. Love the label on this version! Another winner from Dogfish Head.

Think head that lasted the whole beer. Smells like maple syrup. Hops stay on you tongue for a long time. Delicious! Try this beer.

A sweeter and nuttier IPA. I donít what the back-story is behind this that they chose maple syrup. The aftertaste is very nice. The mouthfeel is a bit too fizzy for me; itís a shame that I had this from the bottle because I know for a fact that if I was at the brewery and had it on cask, itíd be a lot smoother and nicer. This is good, but whatís right for me is their 90 :o)

A-unfiltered golden yellow with beautiful thick white frothy head. Solid lacing. M-full but light. Faintly watery. S-citrus hops, pine and soap make up the front, with lemon zest and light malts on the finish. T-grapefruit pine and soap, with lemon juice to follow. Carmel malts make up the spine. Bitter finish of citrus and flat malt.

Hazy amber brew with a slightly off-white head. Aromas of spruce, and molasses are present. Tastes of some fresh grass, pine hops, some herbal notes, and caramel. The flavor of maple syrup really comes out in the malty finish, and that sweetness balances the hops out almost perfectly. Lingering sweetness remains on the tongue after every sip. This stuff is great, would gladly try again.

cask at brewpub hazy orange-amber, lasting white head laces glass. Nose is woody, lemon and light cleaning product. Flavor is fruity, heavy lemon citrus and earth with the more undesirable orange candy pushed off until the very end. Cask body accents wonderfully light lemon notes.
