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!

22 oz bomber bought from "Habits" in S.Salem OR $4.99\ Pours a rather murky burnt orange colour with a large ,thick and bubbly white head. Very aggressive hoppy aromas..resin,citric ( pink grapefruit)..slight pine..very nice really. Taste is simllar to the aroma..but finishes mainly like orange peel..with a bit of caramel malts. Ok mouthfeel ..nicely carbonated and nice longish lasting hop taste. Good summer IPA

Dogbrick (9460) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. The beer pours a slightly hazy straw color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes gradually. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of floral hops and malt. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter herbal hops character and notes of citrus and malt. The finish is hoppy with a floral aftertaste. Above average overall.

joeneugs (4221) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 11, 2013
22 oz bottle. It pours a nice light golden orange with a white head. The aroma is nice with some sweetish tropical fruity hops, melon, milder hints of pine and spice, a little caramel malt and some grain. The flavor is similar with more fruity hop flavor and a big piney, almost inky finish. Pretty light on the palate considering the ABV and light on the maltiness. Tasty and enjoyable.

Bule (1220) - California, USA - AUG 9, 2013
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Great well rounded hop flavors but at the same time very mild. Interesting beer. Would be great outside on a sunny day.

Gerbeer (2362) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a yellow/copper with light head. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, and candy. Favors of citrus and tropical fruit, toasted malts, and light bitter resin. Very easy to drink.

Draft at Smithfields in Ashland. Little-to no aroma and a dank yellow color suggest disaster lies ahead, but no... a lively lemon-peel-plus-hops flavor surprises. Extra-faint malts.Refreshing, summery.... but definitely an only-in-summer beer.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle and draft, 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a medium golden color, decent amount of head. Aroma malty with some caramel and resinous notes. Body lively, finish sweet with a lively lingering bitterness. Better than I remembered, really dig this.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Orange pour with a white head. Aroma is resinous pine hops. Spicy, cat pee and some fruitiness. Hop character is massive but muddled. Flavor is mostly bitter with some of the flavor notes coming forward slightly. Big bitter aftertaste. Ok.
