Special Release Series. 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!

Fatehunter (2274) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Poured into a tulip glass. Hazing golden color, almost transparent, with minimal head. Amazing smell. Complex. All sorts of citrus: lemon, grapefruit and orange. A muted honey. It is blended perfectly. No doubt an IPA. Solid bitterness up front, melts away to a mild malt sweetness, quickly followed by lemon bitter. Pretty crisp, still retains a soft texture though. Moderate carbonation. The smell is the star of the show, good tasting but nothing special to look at.

I’m a litle late getting this, but this bottle is delicious regardless of it’s age. It pours cloudy orange with average head and carbonation. The aroma is grapefruiit/citrus and slightly sweet malt notes. The flavor hits hard with that citrus. Grapefruit, and then a lemon meringue, sweet finish. I liked this beer.

On tap at St Augustine’s, Vancouver. Very cloudy apricot pour with a white head. Big fruit aroma and flavour, nectarine, citrus, a touch metallic. Very flavourful, good bitterness, and not at all cloying. Nice IPA.

teamsale (193) - Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a finger thick white head and good lacing. Smells very woodsy, some olive, mild grapefruit, light tangerine, a hint of rotten eggs. Tastes light and mild, citrus flavor. Mild bitterness, more medium in the aftertaste. More pluses than minuses.
