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!

Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival. Happy hops -- mango, orange, melon, grapefruit, pine...all backed by a solid caramel malt body. Juicy with a soft 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.

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 24, 2013
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.

mikedR (1085) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2013
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
