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!

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 (377) - 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

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.

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.

Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Pours a clear golden color with a white foamy head. Lots of bubbles. Aroma is spicy hops, grains and some dentist plastic. Flavor is spicy hops, dry notes, bitter and leafy. Nice finish. Hoppy and bitter.

Huhzubendah (2832) - 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
