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!

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Golden pour with a white head. The aroma is full of biscuit malt with some spices and grape notes. The flavor is similar with grass, alcohol, oranges and spice. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

GIJOE (477) - Monterey, California, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Golden color with frothy white head that dissipates to lacing quickly. Aroma is all hop, floral and citrus. Tasty is pretty bitter, but the malty backbone is there. Well balanced brew. Medium body; lively carbs, slightly astringent finish. Not my go to style, but it's good for what it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from whole foods Portland. I questioned myself giving this ipa a 10 for taste but if this beer doesn't deserve a 10, what does? Delicious clean fresh hoppy brew - I would like to compare this beer in a taste test with ninkasi 's std ipa; both are tremendous. Clean citrus hop flavor very fresh. This is A truly exceptional ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lager colored ale with lively, piney and citrusy hops on the nose. Mouthfeel is creamy with a nicely balanced hopped finish. Even though this is 6.8 abv you may just want to crown it your perfect summer session beer.

Koskela (233) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 28, 2013
A specialty ale... A floral hoppy aroma slightly sweet smelling. The color is a hazy yellow maybe 8or 10 srm. Has a white head. The taste a tangy tart bitter taste offset by a sweetness but not overpowering. Its a medium bodied brew with good carbonation. Over all its a crisp brew good to bbq

BEENJAMIN (288) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 26, 2013
This has got to be one of my favorite Ninkasi Beers, true hop nectar.. Juicy fruit with spice undertones but overall really easy to drink despite it’s complexity, one of my favorite summer IPA’s.

DuffMan (6167) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Any meium gold, thick white head, thin lace. Lovely hop profile of fresh apricots, lightly floral, with biscuity malts. Not aggressive at all, evn kind of mediocre in the bitterness department, but very nicely flavoured. Elegant.

Bottle 10/30/12: Carmel orange color with a finger of beige head. Not a lot of aroma, but lightly floral and malty. Hops blend well together; piney into citrus into florals. Nice malty presence. Felt a little more like an APA, but what the hell do I know.
