pours a hazy orange color with a lively off white head. aroma is a nice bouquet of citrus hops. taste is strong citrus and piney hops with a nice sweetness that i would think comes from the maple syrup conditioning. a little dry tasting but not bad. very tasty brew

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle split with Anndiesel. Unfiltered orange-tan body. Massive frothy off-white/beige head. A real solid beer, the maple certainly adds some dimension. World Class palate, flavor. Sweet, full bodied, comes off stronger than the ABV would suggest. Has a creamy malt profile that reminds me of Bierre du Corsaire

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On cask @ Rattle N Hum. This is a light murky deep dark orange one with a small bubbly almost translucent top. Lovely sweet nose, some fruity malty tones, lost of peaches, even a little bit of chocolate. Oh my this is tasty. So fresh and casky, it has a gunpowder flavor, Stillwater, ripe berries almost fermented and a lovely hoppy bitterness. The cask has just eaten this beer alive. Amazingly flavorful and wonderfully tasty. A true experience. 13 06.2013

Amber with a super frothy, lasting, lacy, thin, white head. Gentle tropical fruit, caramel, malt, and toasted malt,. Nice sharp hoppy taste of pineapple and citrus with caramel and finishes dry and bitter. Lovely sharp hoppy taste. Fresh.

Bottle at Deans Winter Shelter Tasting. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is grass hop. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a hoppy woody smooth palate. I wished I had time to say more. A super IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light amber color with a medium white head. Aroma is maple-like malts, light earthy hops, and light citrus. Taste is much the same - not quite an Amber, not really an IPA, kind of like a hopped up Traditional Ale or something.
