3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay. Clear orange-amber color with a really large whitish head. Aroma of citrus and maple syrup. Balance weighted toward the bitter side, but the syrup adds a little sweetness that comes through nicely. Fizzy and dry on the palate; medium bodied. I actually prefer either the 90 or the 60, though the 60 not by much.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of sweet fruit, bananas and minty pine. Looks like a tripel in the glass. Light amber in color, nice fizzy head. Very clean prototypical IPA flavor, sweet malt, pine and mint. Slightly astringent on the tongue. Overall, tasty and nice to have sampled it.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
750ml bottle, I was really looking forward to trying this one. It wasn’t at all what I was expecting. I was actually expecting a very hoppy beer (between the 60 and 90 minutute ipa), but this had a different flavor to it. It had a slight hoppy aroma and flavor, but because of the maple syrup, it gave it a different taste. Overall, excellent brew, well balanced,

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 8/20/12 from a capped 750mL bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours clear, deep orange with a massive, fluffy off-white head that slowly recedes to thick and rocky lace, leaving sticky residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is full of lemon and orange peel citrus hops, with some caramel malt, and the maple aroma coming through nicely. The flavor is lightly floral, tons of citrus, hops, with plenty of caramel malt and some maple syrup backing everything up. The body is quite full with average, smooth up front and stinging on the back, carbonation, and a long citrus hops finish.

Botella. Hazy orange colour with a huge beige head. Sweet old fruity like quite hoppy aroma. Good mouthfeel, sweet (old) fruity hoppy citrus like flavour.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This might be my favorite of the "minute" IPAs. Aroma is grass, pine, spice, citrus. Appearance is yellow/ amber. Taste is hops with a nice malt profile to back it up. Palate is a bit sticky but not overpoweringly so (I’m looking at you 90min) Overall a nice hoppy burst.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
August 30, 2012 bottle at BVery’s tasting. Orangish pour with some head and lacing. Citrus hops and caramel in aroma and taste. Not sure how you take two good beers, combine them and make something worse.
