Split bomber with sherm1016; thanks! Poured into my dollar store tulip; cloudy golden/yellow with one finger head. Mild citris hop nose and initial taste. Maple more in the background to mellow out the usual DFH bitterness. Enjoyed it! Beerdedone (3446) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a huge foamy white head. Aroma of pine, caramel, citrus and some light maple. Creamy flavor of caramel, piney and citrus hops, biscuit, earth, and subtle maple with a dry and bitter finish. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2013
(750ml bottle) Pours a hazy golden orange body with a tall rocky long lasting white head. Aroma of grapefruit, florals, tangerine, grass, pepper, and mustiness. Flavor of herbs, grass, caramel, resin, citrus, and earth with a dry, bitter finish. DuffMan (10602) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Cloudy yellow-gold, with a large lacy white head. Fresh aroma, like the sea, with high notes of citrus, fresh peach, celery. Sweet cereal malt, lightly toasty (but no maple syrup that I can detect), lightly floral hops and delicate citrus. Much more delicate and lovely than I had hoped for. I liked this even better than the 90 minute I think! ipamonger (81) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 16, 2013
Pours a cloudy light amber with a pronounced fine beige head worthy of promo shots. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, bread. Good body, fine carbonation, a bit sticky, thick texture. The taste brings through the maple syrup only a bit, which may explain the stickiness/thickness. Dogfish always seem to get a great bitter and sweet balance going, and this is no different. good bitter finish. I want pancakes. Viva la ipa.

750ml->SA. Cloudy gold with large white head. Aroma: hops, grapefruit, pone. Taste: smooth hops and citrus. Nice. MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle thnx to Ed. Looking forward to this one. Pours a clear orange beer with a big white, pillowy head. Aroma is full of citric hops and malt influences. Grapefruit and pine and definitely picking up some maple syrup. Flavor is a great mix between hoppy bitterness and malt, syrupy sweetness. Easy drinkable, gets better when warning up. Awesome beer! raradel (343) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Enjoyed at a @JaxBrewBitch bottle share at Brewer’s pizza in Jacksonville,FL... This one was the 2011 batch that had been cellared by @beerapostle. Nice and balanced, thought the aging mellowed the favors too much, I was expecting more. Would like to try a freshy.

Smell citrusy almost pine flavor up front then the maple blends in. May get a bit of yeast as well. Itb is a cloudy hef. Color and appearing beer. Not what i would think for an ipa. Surprizing medium body. I figured itd be full. Its citrusy at first but then sweet with a hint of maple. Not much maple thats good for them. They got a good balance. The beer is actually crisp. Theres a bitter aftertaste but its a good bitter. Im curious to tr
Y this ipa with out the maple in it as well. The carbonation was good as well. Overall worth a try. hopscotch (11181) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle... Lightly-hazed amber ale with a large, fluffy, white head. Excellent retention. Dusty, grainy, musky aroma. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is acrid, earthy and medium bitter – components I don’t normally enjoy. However, a thoughtful hop bill and hopping schedule - along with a nice hint of maple wood - really sells me on this beer. Finishes mildly salty and modestly bitter with a whisper of sweet maple syrup. I’m gonna be drinking more of this.
