It pours a nice, deep gold color with a dense, creamy, off-white head. It smells nice and hoppy, but slightly subdued underneath all that foam. The flavor has great pine resin, and tropical fruit notes. Outstanding flavor! Medium bodied with low carbonation and a lingering, smooth but bitter finish.

I was very eager to try this. Poured a slight orange/ copper color. Thick white foamy heady than did not retreat. Very soft nose , the hoppiness was subdued yet present enough to intrigue the senses. A very tame bitterness nothing like I expected. Easy drinking ipa. Don’t think I would invest another 15 dollars though.

Bottle from Spirits Manahawkin. Pours out a murky copper color with a big fluffy off white head. Aroma is sweet citrus fruits, some spicy hoppy notes, bread and a lingering sweetness. Taste is of spicy citrus hops, orange rind, light wood, some maple sweetness, woodsy notes, pine hops. I like it.

From the bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange with a never ending thick white head. Citrus hops, woody, and maple syrup aroma. Medium body with lots of citrus and pine hops in the taste. Lots of resiny hops throughout, tasty brew.

Bottle form --->> Pint glass. Oblivion taproom. Nose is plenty of citrusy hops with some light maple sweetness and an oak-like quality. Pour is light copper with an extreme amount of head from my initial pour. I had to wait to drink it for about 5 minutes haha. Taste is lightly sweet citrus from the hops and smooth caramel malt with some light oak qualities again. Very nice and drinkable. Lots of carbonation though. Great!

What a find! The body was lightly carbonated, but also a lightly hazed orange with a huge head. The aromas were thick of dried oranges, lemongrass and lemon zest. Flavors were at first a mild and welcoming hop character with a solid citrus balance. Pour after pour the maple came through and complimented the delicate malt balance. Great stuff and very session-able at 7.5%. Thanks to OmegaX for the bottle share!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A 750 ml bottle from Dog and Bull in Croydon, poured into a Duvel tulip. This appeared as a clear copper with a large white head. This settled to a coating but left ample lacing. The nose was pine, citrus (especially lemon and orange) and some maple syrup. Taste was a nice interplay of hops and sweetness with emphasis on notes of citrus, some breadiness and the maple syrup. Body was medium, creamy and with a healthy carbonation. This is NOT a hop bomb, but a pleasant and remarkably well-balanced IPA, and it is more than just a combination of 60 and 90- minute. I like both but might like this even better than either. If I can get any more, I am eager to try this again SOON!

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear gold pour with a huge head. Some lacing is present. Aroma of grain is very present. Taste is clean and refreshing. I’m not picking up the maple syrup much. I do taste the 60 minute, and a little 90 too. Mouth feel is great. Feels very much cask conditioned. I like this, but I think I like the 60 & 90 on their own better.
