SO, I saw this and thought "Didn’t Cigar CIty do this exact same beer?", then I saw that this is in fact some sort of collaboration deal and a lot of breweries are are doing the same beer. Got it. Anyway, not a bad IPA, but not a whole lot of spice or maple character.

dmac (6387) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2013
22oz bobmer from Spirits Crossroads. Poured a clear deep honey amber/brown body with an average sized frothy off white head. Aroma of dry toast, rotting orange, dry maple syrup, touch of dried out brown sugar. Palate is full with rather strong carbonation and an odd not too pleasant aftertaste. Flavor of soap, rotting citrus, earth. BLAH.

TheBeerGod (6241) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle. Orange amber pour with a medium head. Big citrus and floral hop aroma to this with soft malt, light tropical fruit notes and soft caramel. Taste is big orange, floral hops, light spicy hops, caramel and toasted malt. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Slightly sticky as well. Ends with more orange, floral hops, hop resins, caramel and soft maltiness.

ganache (6005) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Bomber, best by 09/09/14, very cool idea. Nose is heavy orange, zest and rind, with heavy grapefruit and light tropical leanings, lightly dank, some paper and scratchier resins. Weak caramel malt anticipated, but juicy hops. Pours deep but clear orange-red with a dense and creamy beige head. Taste is strongly bitter but not excessive, semi-dry (which is to say semi-sweet) with all of the he above flavors and some doughier edges. Good wood and medium spice from the hops, clean yeast and a touch of soapy cleansing, very fresh and citric with only an average malt background. No alcohol showing, but the mouthfeel is very heavy and wears a bit, medium body otherwise bright, fresh, and clean. Really punches through!

Cybercat (5960) - Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Pours clear amber with a fluffy and rather persistent pale buff head. Hoppy aroma has definite orange and malty notes plus a woody undertone. Flavor is very hoppy and woody, with orange and malt in the background. Firm body and strong fizz make for a good mouthfeel, while finish is woody and hoppy and just a little bitter. Go to bat four our troops and their families!

nearbeer (5516) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 29, 2014
650 ml. Lightly hazy orange amber with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Aroma is toffee with resin, orange, ginger and grapefruit zest. Tastes of earthy toffee, resin, molasses and lightly sour orange. Finish has some detracting menthol and leafy-wooden bitterness. Light-medium body has a nice smooth carbonation and finishes well to the dry side with some astringency.

3.6
rumproasts (5470) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2013
bottle. Golden with two finger head. Seemed at first to be a pretty standard (but above average) IPA. As it warmed, I caught more of the woodiness, which while subtle, adds some depth. The spicing improved as it warmed a bit too.

3.4
mar (5434) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Tap. Deep amber pour with a cream head. Nose is light citrus, fresh hops, earth, and florals. Easy palate, not overly hopped, bitter, chewy, fruity finish.

3.3
travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2013
The look is amber in color, off white head, and a clear look. The smell is fruits, hops, grass, resin, and caramel. The taste is hoppy, good bitterness, fruit, hops, and grassy.
