Bomber to glass shaker. Pours a clear yellow with a thick white head that doesn’t dissipate. Light hop flavors, and medium dense mouthfeel. I was expecting something heavier. If this make sense, it seems to me to be lighter than that 60min. I can’t really taste any maple syrup as advertised. For the rarity, this gets a strong "meh" RichTheVillan (7905) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle from Khoury’s; clear amber pour, frothy white head, malt and honey aroma, as with the 60/90 great balance of malt and hop, citrus hop bite biscuity malt, heavy carbonation. Excellent IPA. Crompt (122) - York, South Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 I have to admit I’m a sucker for maple syrup in my stouts (like CBS) but I found out I’m also a sucker for it in IPAs if done right. This is a nice mix of 60/90 min IPA for the malty bitterness and the maple syrup cuts right through with a little sweetness and balance. Wonderful! jd10 (68) - Lebanon, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 25, 2012
pours golden yellow with white head. aroma is light citrus hops. taste is primarily citrus hops and some tropical fruits with little to no bitterness - it’s well balanced by some creamy malt flavor. finishes with clover honey sweetness. exceeded my expectations - it’s very, very well done, and immediately one of my favorites. jshie234 (10) - Clinton Township, Michigan, USA - DEC 25, 2012
750 bottle. Nice head which left a nice lacing on the glass. A strong piney, slight grapefruit aroma. Crisp, hoppy, and balanced. Only got the hint of sweetness once this beer warmed up a bit. A nice drinkable IPA.

Honey amber color in the glass with a massive head. The aroma has huge malts up front with some citrus and pine. Also some bread and a hint of sweetness. Taste has maltiness up front which leads the way with a touch of maple sweetness. Also some citrus on the finish. Great beer and well balanced. timberrr (43) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 22, 2012
750ml bottle poured in snifter. Pours amber with a little haze. Moderate fluffy white head with some lacing, good retention. Grapefruit and pine aroma with hints of pineapple. Pleasant hoppy pine flavor in the beginning with a light citrus/sweet fruit finish and a touch of malt. Well carbonated and crisp, nice mouth feel. Overall a great beer, enjoyed this IPA. dfearnley (2200) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2012
750mL bottle to flute
Aroma of string pine, grapefruit, slight yeast and resin. Slightly cloudy amber with a thin white head and moderately Lacing. Slightly sweet, hoppy and creamy taste with no late bitterness. Mouth feel is medium bodied creamy and smooth with slight alcohol at the end. Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - DEC 21, 2012
750 ml. bottle- Pours slightly hazy golden with a nice two finger fluffy white head. The aroma is strong hops, resinous, piney, I don’t have to even put my nose to the glass to smell them, if there is maple syrup it is overpowered by the hops. The taste is also resinous piney bitter hops, there is a strong malt backbone, I do get the maple mostly in the aftertaste, it’s like a wallop of bitterness then a hint of sweetness that follows through the finish. Body is medium, carbonation is kind of high. Overall I liked this, was possibly hoping for more, but was good. Garbageman (487) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2012
From bottle. Pours amber with haze and little head. Wonerdful aroma of fresh piney AND citrus hops. Taste follows with balance between a huge hop bill and caramel malt.
