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!

presario (4594) - 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.

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.

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle from DeLaurenti, Pike Market, Seattle
Amber color, clean. Very nice aroma of hops, resiny and fruity, piney, with some biscuits. Good toffee flavor, not sweet, but with a round mouthfeel; good hopping, for strength and quality, providing a fair share of piney resins, leading to a long final.
Fresh, very good.
