I had at Muggs Alehouse in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
A/S. It has a nice deep opaque color of brown, with a good head of foamy white with a bit of lacing. There's a very nice strong citrus and alcohol scent to it.
T/M. It has a nice lemon and citrus taste with some dark fruit and a bit of hoppiness. A bit of a sour aftertaste.
O. A good fruity and sweet IPA.

I've had this a few times, time to review.
Golden with a persistent sheet of white foam and a brilliant clarity. Smells malty, sweet and light bread, tea, cola, candied pecans, touch of german yeast character, a touch of freshly cut alfalfa and a hint of rose. Flavor is floral: malts, slight oxidation, a bit of bread and caramel. There is a ton of flower character in here for me with rose hips, a little bit of hibiscus and orange peel likeness in here. I like the complexity of the flavor, delicate as it is. Medium bodied with limited carb and an almost dry finish. Nice beer, glad how this one has evolved.

4/5 rDev +1.3%
Sample: 1 bottle 2012
A: Dark orange in color, pours a strong off-white head that sustains, moderately strong internal carbonation, slightly cloudy throughout
S: Moderately fragrant, elements of mild citrus and dried fruit, sugar cane, some caramel, interesting, slight alcohol
T: Much akin to the nose, more alcohol than expected, especially given the age, sweet, creamy, followed by citrus and dried fruit notes
M: Smooth and certainly drinkable, but not exactly cellar worthy, more alcohol than should be present, no aftertaste, not lingering or drying on the palate
O: Not sure what a fresh version tasted like, but not entirely impressive, still true to the style and worth a try, but nothing to write home about (a review on Beer Advocate is a different story, however)

3.5/5 rDev -11.4%
Review from 6/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a dark orange amber. Strong pop on opening. Light, white head with little lacing. Mild caramel malt and hop aroma. Hop forward with light malt flavor. Peppery, grassy and boozy. Medium, slightly creamy bodied. Not as well integrated as it could have been. A satisfactory, but not remarkable maibock.
