Part of a mix your own sixer. Might have been a bit old, but the hops weren’t what I like. Musty aroma and muddled malt/bitterness.

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a darker copper with lots of chunks floating in it and a beige head of foam. The aroma has pine and grapefruit. Mild sweetness with a drying bitter finish.

Draught pint, Sugar Maple, Milwaukee viii/23. More than solid light sessioning IPA, just like its origin midway between West coast citrus zest and more floral, herbal overtones, still Cascade, not Simcoe bitter. Dry malt backbone.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours a golden copper in color with an off-white head that stuck around and left lace. Bold citrus hop aroma with some floral and malt notes mixed in. Big citrus hop flavor with a bit floral as well. Nice toasty, biscuit, caramel malt backbone that falls short of balancing it out. Body is medium and well carbonated.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange, great lasting head. Aroma sweeter. Taste not as sweet as expected. Sweet briefly, then into a moderate bitterness with a nice bready malt balance. Not bad.

12 oz bottle from De Bierkoning @ home (bottled 1 Feb. 2013). Clear amber color. Off white head with short retention. Aroma upon opening the bottle: resinous & cirussy, but only shortly so. In the glass there’s earthy hops, some roast/toast and a hint of tropical fruit. Retronasal there’s sweet fruit, earthy hops, herbal. Flavor is (strangely enough) rather sweet but with a decent bitterness for balance. Body is medium. Finish is long and rather bitter. Interesting interpretation of the style, but actually quite nice.
