pours golden yellow with white head. aroma is light citrus hops. taste is primarily citrus hops and some tropical fruits with little to no bitterness - it’s well balanced by some creamy malt flavor. finishes with clover honey sweetness. exceeded my expectations - it’s very, very well done, and immediately one of my favorites.

From a bottle into a pumking glass. Pours an opaque orange-red. There is some lacing down the glass as the beer level lowers. The aroma is of citrus, hops and alcohol. The taste starts fruity/sweet, goes to bitter, and finishes with the taste of maple and oak in the back of your throat. Quite an interesting combination.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Burnished gold color out of the bottle with a fluffy white head. Bright green hop nose with some citrus notes. Caramel and toffee sweetness with bright orange zest and tropical fruit flavors. Some hop Jolly Rancher character (I wish they made a hop flavored Jolly Rancher). This is a very quaffable, hoppy beer.

Thanks Bullwinkle. What a fun beer. Brilliant use of the maple syrup as a foil for the legendary DFH hoppiness. Way too easy to drink.

Pours a cloudy golden-yellow, with massive creamy white head. Aroma is primarily floral hops, with some earthiness underneath. Flavor is marked by pine-hop bitterness and just a touch of sweetness underneath. Beer is very dry and finish is quite astringently bitter.

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 doesn’t 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 come’s through. Quite heavy on the toffee for an IPA. IPA or not this is great beer!
