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!

What can I say? Hoppy, Hoppy, Hoppy! This is definitely brewed to be consumed during the heat of summer. As the label implies: find a nice shade tree, pop the cap, & enjoy the summer. Drink fresh!

From 22oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a transparent gold, thick full head. Aroma is verry hoppy, floral, slight malt. Taste is light bodied, very bitter. Finishes well with a heavy carbonation. Good beer, Ninkasi sure loves its hops.

(22oz bomber) clear medium to deep gold, excellent offwhite lacing and soapy bubbles. Nose of heavy malt, herbal hops, grassy, touch of corn creeping in but not offensive, candi sugar, and cream. Smells pretty unique for an IPA. Taste is rather herbal and grassy, oily body, lightly bitter citrus peel, balanced by the heavy malt, though no unfermented sugars going on in here, creamy finish with medium, natural-feeling carbonation.

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.

Draft. Amber beer with a cream head. Big ruby grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and light pine flavor. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and light pine linger.

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

stevoj (2067) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 25, 2013
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.
