3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2012 Draft at CAH. Pours hazy orangy with off-white head. Nose is hopcitrus, tropical fruity, resiny, with peppery and caramel malt notes. Tastes very complex, with a big resiny hop flavor, tengarine, honeydew, black pepper, and some marmaladey sweetness. Well hidden alcohol, and this is as good as I figured it would be.
Re-rate 25-Mar-2012. Bomber from RR St. Pours copper with frothy off-white head. Nose is piney hops, resiny, sticky, with caramel malt, hops, florals, and peppery flavors. Iím kicking this down a bit because quite simply it doesn;t seem as good to me as either the 60 or the 90 separately. There is no synergism here, but rather this one seems less than the sum of its parts.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bright copper orange with a quarter-inch of head. Great aroma of citrus fruits, sweet malts, light caramel- well balanced. Flavor is much like the aroma with a faint maple note. Finish is slightly dry and with nice bitterness. Smooth bodied. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this one but it was on point.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2010-12-03. Hazy dark amber with a tiny head that fades. 3+ Flavour has a sharp citrus bitterness up front, sweetness in the middle before a sharp finish. Mild alcohol throughout. I did not really get any maple character out of it. 7+ Aroma is alcoholic at first, modest hops, muted sweet citrus. 7+ Smooth average plus bodied palate. Decent, but not what I had hoped.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[3499-20101203] Cask. Fresh citrus hops aroma has specific notes of orange and lemon citrus. Hazy, light brown orange body with quick bubbles. More fresh hoppy orange and lemon drops in the flavour. Medium body is fairly bitter as it goes along. Delicious!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This has a bright copper color wiht a good white head, lacing is extremely good in this brew. this is much like a mixture between a 90 minute and a 60 minute brew which is also dry but not to dry. the amroma is very much citurs, with some malty sents, while the taste is hoppy but of a milder tone, (not so harsh like ipa, which i like). overall this has mildness of hops and sweetness. the body of it is smooth and not very heavy.. could easily drink this one.... 1, i would recommend this one to anyone who likes IPAís and Pale Ales, plus i would recommend this one to whom like those plus CASKS.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 Had on tap at the Falls Church Alehouse.
A: Beautiful bright copper color with a good head and plenty of lacing as it goes down.
S: Lots of hops. Can definitely tell this is the 60/90 blend, as Iím getting quite a bit of each. Lots of the 60-type hops in addition to the solid malt sweetness of the 90.
T: Citrus hops take the front stage, but the sweet maltiness is definitely there, and doesnít let the hops get too overpowering.
M: Light-to-medium body with a good amount of carbonation. Not much alcohol to be tasted.
D: Incredible--much, much better than either two of its component parts. Iíll be blending quite a few of these at home for myself in the future.
Serving type: on-tap

Cask. Woha, Paint thinner aroma. Flavor follows, flat, fusel alcohol, honey sweet, really seems like it should be removing paint, abrasive pine, hard to swallow. Utterly confused, hand me a regular 60 please.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on cask at Hamiltonís during SDBW. I wasnít expecting to see this brew in SD but low and behold here it is. The appearance is a pale flat golden yellow hue that is cloudy. The aromas are full of apricots, mango, tangerines, very fruity. The flavors follow the nose with the tangerine and mango some oak notes. The mouth is really creamy but very lightly carbonated. A bit syrupy at times. Overall a solid brew.
