750ml bottle purchased from CCB. Stamped date of May 2012.
Hazy, orange/amber elixir produces thick 2 finger head, settling to one finger of tight, off-white bubbles during the tasting. Beautiful, copious Belgian lacing coats the glass.
Citrus, lime, lemon zest, subtle pine. The maple wood blends nicely with the rest of the aromas.
Smooth hoppy bitterness in the form of piney hops, lemon/lime and zest. The maple wood comes in at the end.
Medium body, nicely carbonated.
Nice sessionable IPA. Low ABV for the style but flavorful. Brewed for a good cause.

Can gifted to me by stillmatic2232, this one was a little weird.
Pours a murky orange, with a huge 3 inch head, and a little bit of lacing.
Smells like citrus and tropical fruits, with some vanilla and oak.
Creamy and fruity taste, almost like a creamsicle, with a woody taste, from the Louisville Slugger bats. This is good, but there's just something off-putting I can't put my finger on. I feel like this one would honestly be better blended with ice, it's so goddamn creamy and fruity.
Really weird mouthfeel on this one- it's weirdly thick, with a sort of off-putting carbonation that's hard to describe, almost like it's a cask in a can.
Not bad, but it's one of the weirdest IPAs I've ever had.

Despite being fresh a multitude of floaters courses through a coppery cloudy body. The head was a bit dull but had a stiff bubbly build.
The nos was filled with pithy grapefruit, citrus tangerines, maple syrup, lemon sweetness, and a stable caramel malt.
The flavor is strong on maple with a touch of vanilla, which adds a creaminess. There's a strong citrus finish that reminded me of Orange rinds, with an oiliness.
The feel is thick but the orangey oily taste translates to feel. Otherwise the astringency is low and it's fairly easy to drink.
This has very little overriding IPA qualities but it's so different and interesting that one can easily overlook it and enjoy.
