3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank from a 750 ml bottle served in a short pilsner glass. Very thick, fluffy head and a sweet pleasant hops aroma. Orange with light amber and a bit of cloudiness with a good amount of bubbles. Strong hops flavor with some additional sweetness and complexity that I'm guessing comes from the maple, although maple flavor isn't obvious. Great smooth palate.

Nice dark orange head. Beautiful white frothy head. A bit citrusy and beautiful nose. Thick silky mouth taste, nice honey met taste with a sweet and pleasant hops tone.

Light but complex aromas of citrus, hops and dough. Cloudy orange color with a huge frothy head. Tingly bitter greets the tongue immediately followed by a full mouth of apricot-sweet malt. Long lasting hop bitter gets injected into the sides of the mouth and sticks around for a while. Excellent stuff.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma of stale hops, slightly citric, and a bit of graininess. Sweetish flavor with malt, a bit of maple, moderate citric hops, a bit stale, and a faint bitterness. Medium-bodied, rounded mouthfeel.

$9.49 bomber, Wine Warehouse. I saw a chunk of white on the side of the bottle, so I rolled it a dozen times til it mixed in. Pours hazy amber, giant frothy off-white head. Smells of grapefruit and copper. Tastes like an alcoholic fruit juice. Peach, grapefruit, apricot finish. I donít taste the maple.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fun idea from a brewery with many. Pours a hazy deep gold with a tight bubbled head. The carbonation is spikey and creates a great mouth feel. Taste is a touch tinny, possibly from the maple syrup? Solid beer.

Bottle... Poured hazy, golden/amber with a nice retaining head. Hoppy floral, grassy, earthy bitterness with some sweetness, berry-like fruits and a hint of maple, dark sugars, and grains. Seems like the maple syrup works with the yeast and hops to give a nice fruitiness here.

Bottle from family. Cloudy pour with a puffy white head. Fantastic floral aroma with honeysuckle, citra, pine, and orange. Taste is sweet. Less hops than what I get in aroma. Overall well rounded but on the malty end. Iíll recommend this beer to my friends who want to like ipas but dislike the typical bitterness associated with the style. This ipa is mellow, sweet, aromatic, medium bodied beer that gets a big thumbs up. Although it says maple syrup cask on the bottle I canít taste it immediately, itís only at the end of the palete and is only present at the end of the nose.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Very nice IPA for a medium alcohol content beverage. Pours into a nice two fingers of frothy head. Aroma is pungent but sweet. Mouthfeel is smooth, with notes of caramel and citrus. Not a killer like its big brother 90 or 120 minute.

Had from a bottle from Uptown Market. Aroma was slightly sweet, but not maple. Great IPA flavor. Hoppy and a sweet finish, but not too sweet. The maple syrup flavor is not noticeable at all. I was worried this beer would be too gimmicky but it was a great IPA!
