COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Special Release Series. 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. Grass and citrus hop aroma with floral and pine hops in there as well. Pours golden colored with a large, soapy white head with excellent retention and very little lacing. Starts with bright grapefruit citrus and grass flavors. Finishes quite dry with floral and pine hops attacking and clinging to the palate with the grapefruit acidity. Pretty good, but not sure how this qualifies as a summer style IPA.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, white head, with moderate lacing, over a clear, light gold (SRM 4) body....nose is light toasted malts, pine, resin, citrus notes, from the hops, balance to the hops......taste is slightly sweet, with cereal, toasted malts, pine, resin, light floral notes, citrus tones, from the hops, leading to a soft lingering bitter finish.....mouth feel, medium body, slight alcohol, high carbonation. This is a quite typical American IPA, with dominant American hops in both aroma and flavor. It is not harshly bitter as are many in the genre, with the result being a soft, refreshing and easily drinkable beer. BJCP 9/3/15/4/8

22oz bomber to cervoise. Pours clear gold. Frothy white head. Aroma of fresh-squeezed OJ, fresh hops, pine. Taste is citrus juice, some pine, pale malts, cracker, pineapple, some earth and pepper. Dry finish fizzles out quickly. Refreshing.

Sask89 (508) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 3, 2015
Pours a clear golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma is citrusy, a little floral, and slightly earthy. Taste is a little sweet but a little more bitter, which is quite nice. Lighter body, good carbonation, and smooth on the palate. A very nice IPA overall.

Arayaga2 (2099) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Clear light gold with some white head. Aroma is a light muddle of hops, and taste is the same, with a nice lagery malt bill that finishes malty, but clean with the well-blended hop presence throughout.
