look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

pours a cloudy golden orange. massive fluffy cloud like head. sticky lacing. very beautiful.

very hop forward on the nose, juicy citrus and fresh pine.

flavor is still hoppy but a bit more muted. a mix of pine resin, malty body, and light orange. a hint of citrus mixed in.

very moderate carbonation with a hint of bite.

very tasty, very interesting, great ABV for easier drinking.

Pours a cloudy orange with a super big white frothy head that slowly recedes leaving some nice super solid soapy lacing.

Aromas are herbal and with a pine edge to them and a little bit of orange peel. The Maple wood aging begins to emerge after you get past the lightly toasted sweet maltiness and the hops.

The tastes begin with a pleasant enough mix of oranges and other citrus with pine and a little papaya or something vaguely tropical. There is a little bit of a sweet maltiness that is almost creamy. Hops become more bitter on the palate as it warms.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium to high carbonation, a little high for my preference. Finish is super dry thanks to the hops, maple wood aging and abundant carbonation.

Overall this was a nice beer for a good cause. Nothing super amazing but just really solid. Bordering on sessionable and I would gladly purchase again if offered at a lower price point or a more economical package size.

A: Pours a copper-amber color with a big head that fades slowly to ample lacing.

S: Aroma of citrus, pine and a hint of sweetness.

T: tatse of some citrus and malt sweetness with just a bit of grain. Very nice bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Fairly medium body, quite crisp, smooth and refreshing. Nicely balanced.

O: Very enjoyable beer that goes down easy.

The beer comes in a golden yellowish orange.

The aroma has pine, citrus in the front, and then also a grassy and woody note. It's not dank and deep, more of an almost British hop profile.

The flavor follows with spiciness, pine, grass, orange with a light bitterness on the back.

Mouthfeel is lighter medium.

A decent IPA and a bit different from others.

A - Poured out a cloudy, golden orange color with a two-finger, tan head of bubbly foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of orange peel and pine. A slight woody note.

T - It tasted spicy with a piney bitterness. Some orange notes with a toasty malt backbone.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a good IPA. And it nice to have the proceeds go to a good cause.
