3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy orange appearance with a white tight head. The aroma has spicy hop notes with some maple syrup coming through. The colour of the beer doesnít look like it has used any roasted malt but it does smell slightly roasty. Taste has some slight citrus notes, slightly earthy and woody. Sweet maple syrup comeís through. Quite heavy on the toffee for an IPA. IPA or not this is great beer!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the bottle: Itís slightly hazy, burnt orange with a couple inches of light tan, orange hued foam, gradually settling with some soapy lace. Nice aromas of maple and pine with some oak. Big and bold, bitter and acidic twang riding atop sweetness that brings caramel, orange, apricot, maple, and a woody bite to round out the finish. Overall I think itís a very delicious, nearing double, IPA, each element holding itís own without too much aggression. Maple compliments the caramel backbone very well, and oak aging plays well with the hoppy elements. Medium to full bodied and it holds up with with warming. Lush carbonation. This bottleís about 4 1/2 months old so I would have like to taste it fresher, but itís very good at present.

750 to glass. Aroma of light hops and some sweetness that I assume is the maple syrup. Taste is a mild, lightly hopped IPA with a hit of crisp sweetness and maple at the end. Good carbonation. Ok beer, not my favorite.

75cl bottle (bottles on 7/15/13) - pours cloudy amber/orange with plenty of offwhite head. Nose is wet citrus and pine with honey? Sip adds lemon/orange. Fairly sweet for the style. Very easy to drink and almost light. More of a spring/summer brew in my book.

Pours cloudy with a long lingering white foam. Immediate soft citrus hoppy taste that doesn't stay long. Continues with a very mild finish. An excellent medium IPA

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the 750 ml. bottle. The color of the pour is typical of the style with its bronze-amber-orange look but there is a tremendous long lasting cream colored head. A slight fog. Subtle aroma that is not in my face including toasted biscuit malts, maple sweetness, and a grassy, floral hop scent. But the hops are highly downplayed on the nose considering what it is. Smooth body around medium. Good bitterness from the floral and grassy hops that match up well with the toasted biscuit. Maple is also picked up. Well integrated alcohol and bitterness lingers briefly at the end.

pours a semi-clear amber with a very large off-white head, and very good lacing.
smell is of floral, dry hops, citrus, and a little malt.
taste is fizzy, hops, some caramel, a little citrus, and dry leaves. I donít taste any of the maple syrup. ends a little bitter.

Bottle. Murky yellow with decent white head. Didnít pick up any hints of maple until it warmed slightly. Smoothed out some too. Nothing special imo.

Pours with a large head, light amber color and floral hops aroma. Tastes a bit more dry than I would have liked better.
