COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Down, down, down Maelstrom will go, pulling the hapless beer enthusiast in with a beguiling blend of blood orange, Northwest hops and sweet orange peel. Stray to close and you may not escape the currents of this tender trap. Blood orange provides tartness and the blush of a brazen sea, Citra and amarillo hops from the Yakima Valley offer bite and aroma, and orange peel suggests a little something else on the wind. Maelstrom is brewed with pale, Munich and Dextri-pils malts bittered with German Northern Brewer and finished and dry-hopped with Citra and Amarillo.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle from Community Food Co-op - N Forest St, Bellingham, WA
Cloudy deep blond color with medium sized head. Nice grapefruity hop aroma, a bit pungent, quite fresh. Dry mouthfeel, with some toffee flavor; good grapefruit flavor, strong bitterness; there is some orange fruitiness; the orange brings in too much orange bitterness.
A very good strong APA.

mcberko (5362) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of pure oranges, loads of citrus hops, and a bit of caramel malt quite outdone by the citrus fruit. Flavour brings out loads of dry citrus fruits, oranges, dry citrus hops and just enough malt to back. Quite a citrus juicy body with a dry finish. Decent stuff.
