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!

Huhzubendah (2525) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle shared drabmuh. Thanks Matt. The beer is mildly hazy and yellow hued with a half inch of pure white head. The aroma brings dank hops, slight must, various citrus. The flavor is decent. The beer tastes fine, but not as bold or delicious as it seems it could be. Potential there but unreached. Light bodied with a bit of sharp harshness in the feel. Overall, pretty good. Could use a few minor tweaks. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-06-2012

Bought this in August in Portland and brought it back to Vancouver Island. Forgot about in the basement until this weekend. What a nice surprise when I cracked open this little beauty. A mouthful of elegant hops and bitter citrus that permeates the taste buds. Delicious!

Pale golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is very bright and hoppy with a lot of soft grapefruit and some bright chewy hoppiness. Fresh and citrusy. Juicy and fruity.

presario (4626) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle. Name does not imply IPA. Amber with a thin white head and a mass of the tiniest particulate I have ever seen suspended in the glass. Big fruity hop nose; nectarines. Strong nectarine hops, nice gentle sweet malt and big bitterness in the middle and aftertaste. Nice balance and very drinkable.

A - Pours a almost clear golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit, floral, and pine hops with some sweet caramel and biscuit malts. T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit and citrus hops with some bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some pine and floral hops come through with some more bitterness and some biscuit malts. The finish is a mix of grapefruit, floral, and grassy hops with some resiny bitterness and some sweet caramel and bready malts. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, bitter, and resiny finish. D - Very drinkable. Good overall balance with a nice hop profile and bitterness throughout.
