3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Tiffany’s , Kalamazoo MI. Thick hazy tan gold pour. A few inches of very dense white head on top. Scent is subtle pineapple and pine hops. Light or medium body with medium carbonation. Hop- forward taste but in a huge blend of hop flavors. Coppery taste (I mean that to be positive), also pine hop flavor. Don’t really sense the impact of maple syrup. Finish is shockingly clean and sweet, lavender and honey taste is left with a hint of dryness but very little bitter. I like 90 minute more.
On cask at the brewery in DE. Thin white head. Smooth flavor. Can tell it's a blend of 60 and 90 minute.

Handpumped Cask at the Brewery
Nose has pine and spruce tips and pine. Malt and mash actually predominate the nose.
Mouthfeel is full-bodied and light soapy, the cask and hand pump give this IPA a more fruity and juicy mouthfeel. Palate has smooth almost creamy malty flavor with barley bread, milled grain, and multigrain toast. Hops are pine needles, some pine sap.
Finish is medium characterized by pine needles and sap. A medium aromatic, slightly bitter finish.
Goes on Favorites List for purely sentimental reasons.
Just a comforting mouthfeel with a very pleasant malty and almost soupy palate. Just AWESOME!! skortila (5966) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2017
Bottled. Old note. The aroma has fruity hops, some toffee. Bit hazy, orange coloured beer with a medium sized head. The taste is moderate-strong bitter with some toffee sweetness, fruity hops, citrus. Medium bodied beer. Nice. VastActiv (7483) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2017

Bottle. Pours hazy, with large suspended sediment, frothy, lasting head with decent lacing. Can’t taste or smell the maple-and I’m from Vermont, well balanced, appropriate but lingering carbonation, light to medium body, sticky sweet and lightly bitter finish. Not terribly exciting, probably won’t have it again. LadySusan (766) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 17, 2016
Taster at The Mondial de la biere Montréal. The color is a hazy honey with a thick beige head. The aroma is of hops, and citrus fruits. The taste also of hops plus cereals and citrus fruits, malt and yeast. To my liking I prefer the 90 minute I.P.A. LetsGoState (907) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Aroma is a little sweet. Taste has medium bitter hops, but nicely balanced. Overall a very good IPA. jsporrer (1086) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Pours a hazy golden Amber with a huge head of white creamy foam and plenty of lacing. Aroma is lightly sweet citrus with some earthy notes. Medium thick body, smooth and syrupy texture. Taste is fairly dry, lightly sweet with some hints of spice like cloves or coriander. Leaves a numbing sensation on the tongue and roof of the mouth. Not bad, just not as flavorful or enjoyable as I had expected.

I can’t smell the maple. Cloudy golden. Very smooth with subtle hint of maple. Great beer.
