Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium orange with a huge (3-4 finger) white frothy head that receded at a nice slow steady pace down to a few puddles with a large collar and produced some excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, pine and citrus hops and a soapy yeast with hints of maple, caramel and citrus (grapefruit).
The taste was moderately bitter with a slight malty maple sweetness early on and then became decently hoppy with a bitter citrus peel presence towards the end. The flavor lasted a good long while after the swallow, with a nice hoppy citrus taste along with a mild sweetness that was left to lie on the taste buds for a little while longer.
Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a moderately dry texture and almost prickly carbonation.
Overall this is an IPA that is not to overpowering, but does posses a nice sweet hoppiness and is very well balanced. Highly recommended...

Bottle. Pours hazy, with large suspended sediment, frothy, lasting head with decent lacing. Can’t taste or smell the maple-and I’m from Vermont, well balanced, appropriate but lingering carbonation, light to medium body, sticky sweet and lightly bitter finish. Not terribly exciting, probably won’t have it again.

Taster at The Mondial de la biere Montréal. The color is a hazy honey with a thick beige head. The aroma is of hops, and citrus fruits. The taste also of hops plus cereals and citrus fruits, malt and yeast. To my liking I prefer the 90 minute I.P.A.

Pours a hazy golden Amber with a huge head of white creamy foam and plenty of lacing. Aroma is lightly sweet citrus with some earthy notes. Medium thick body, smooth and syrupy texture. Taste is fairly dry, lightly sweet with some hints of spice like cloves or coriander. Leaves a numbing sensation on the tongue and roof of the mouth. Not bad, just not as flavorful or enjoyable as I had expected.

Cask - Nice rich head. Only a mild bitterness from mixing the beers. Certainly has more sweetness then the 60 minute and more bitterness then the 90 minute. Has a creamy taste to it. I know there is maple syrup in her but it is only a hint, helps add to the overall sweet flavor of the beer.
