COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A salute to the playful side of summer, we had fun with this beer! Maiden the Shade has a big robust hop character from the liberal use of 7 different varieties of hops. It s completed with a light colored malt backbone to stay in balance. Kick back and enjoy!

Bomber. Pours hazy orange with a nice froth head. Aroma is fruity, peachy and tastes the same with a nice light hoppy bitter finish

Nice grapefruit essence to this, both in the aroma and taste. Hoppiness lingers on the palate (nicely, not overpowering). Slightly hazy golden body, fine carbonation, thin silky head. Citrus nose, pine, flowers. Really, really nice.

Not a typical IPA. Somewhat cloudy appearance. A bit fizzy, not much head to speak of. Good though.

On tap @ Draughts (Thousand Oaks). Orange pour with a white head. Nose is orange, grapefruit, and plenty of pine. Fairly floral, some sweet bread, and grass. Decent flavor of grapefruit peel, orange peel, and pine. Grassy hops, bread, apricot, and a strong floral note. Subtle fruity tartness.

Nice, very IPA like. Bitter, but not as much as an IPA. But more pronounced grapefruit flavor and accompanying aroma than I can ever remember having in a beer. Not particularly complex, but just a really good beer to relax with, especially at just 6.8%. B+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bomber bought from "Habits" in S.Salem OR $4.99\ Pours a rather murky burnt orange colour with a large ,thick and bubbly white head. Very aggressive hoppy aromas..resin,citric ( pink grapefruit)..slight pine..very nice really. Taste is simllar to the aroma..but finishes mainly like orange peel..with a bit of caramel malts. Ok mouthfeel ..nicely carbonated and nice longish lasting hop taste. Good summer IPA

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. The beer pours a slightly hazy straw color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes gradually. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of floral hops and malt. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter herbal hops character and notes of citrus and malt. The finish is hoppy with a floral aftertaste. Above average overall.

joeneugs (2934) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 11, 2013
22 oz bottle. It pours a nice light golden orange with a white head. The aroma is nice with some sweetish tropical fruity hops, melon, milder hints of pine and spice, a little caramel malt and some grain. The flavor is similar with more fruity hop flavor and a big piney, almost inky finish. Pretty light on the palate considering the ABV and light on the maltiness. Tasty and enjoyable.
