3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a cloudy amber/orange body with a massive inch long off-white head. The nose is fruity and resinous with citrus and piney hops. The flavor is explosive with hops; big notes of pine tree, perfume, citrus, underlying hints of biscuit and malt. Lively carbonation and full body. The hops continue to pop in the mouth long after a sip is enjoyed. Nice work as usual from DFH!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 11/2012 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a golden color with a huge foamy/creamy white head that lingered forever and left decent lacing. The aroma was semi sweet pine, grapefruit and a touch of bread. The flavor was dryish and bitter pine and grapefruit with hints of bread, pepper and maple. Medium length pine and grapefruits finish. Medium length finish. Ok but I had hoped for much better.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
