Pouring at Get Real NY. Pours a just clear orange gold with a thin white head. Big earthy citrus, malt, and touches of booze. Big hops. Smooth caramel and fruit, chewy tropical fruit, malt and caramel. Smooth, sweet bitterness. Surprisingly good, and a lot better than I had been expecting. hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Firkin at Capone’s. Poured a medium amber color with not head. Aromas of floral hops & citrus / citrus rinds. Tastes of citrus, some caramel, and lighter floralness. The citrus became stronger as it warmed up and this one grew on me as I got through the glass. slowrunner77 (12594) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 26, 2014
"interesting take an ipa (though i’d hardly call it a double). maple syrup makes for a pleasing and unique bittersweet finish. different than the brandied fruitcake of the 90 minute, but similar...and this is a lighter beer. More aggressively hopped than 60, and bottle conditioned for a different, dryer feel. pretty nice...not sure it’s worth the extra coin more than very ocassionally over 60 or 90...or Squall." madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2012

Bomber. Orange-yellow pour with a big fluffy white head. Grassy hops, yeast, and some maple sweetness. Fairly aggressive carbonation. Good hop bite. Nice brew. hopscotch (11182) - 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. faroeviking (11119) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 13, 2012
Botella. Hazy orange colour with a huge beige head. Sweet old fruity like quite hoppy aroma. Good mouthfeel, sweet (old) fruity hoppy citrus like flavour.
