look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours orange in color with bits of sediment floating in the glass (consuming not super fresh however). 2 fingers of white head and tons of lacing.

Aroma presents with crisp grapefruit, rather tame but still present tropical fruit notes, some pine, a malt sweetness, and an almost strawberry-like aroma.

Taste is definitely malt forward. The sweetness balances the hops nicely. The maple syrup is very hard to differentiate from the generic malt sweetness though. Great carbonation on the beer, with only a kiss of non-lingering bitterness at the finish. More of the grapefruit comes forward mid-sip with a nice bright citrusy-ness intertwined.

Overall, this is a nicely balanced beer. Definitely a different pace from the classic West-Coast hop bomb, but still a nice beer to drink. I see this pairing well with many different dishes; in particular, I see a nice rare-cooked roast beef sandwich working nicely. It gets a 88.5/100.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Pale amber in color and translucent with minimal head and significant lacing.

Aromas of pine and citrus and not much else.

Taste is dominated by pine with some citrus, malt, and subtle sweetness.

Mouthful is medium to light, clean bordering on crisp with dry lingering finish.

Overall it looks and feels good but I was letdown by the maple syrup being so far removed from the flavor profile.

Smell is piney hops, mixed citrus and a hint of syrup. Taste follows with a lingering resinous hop finish. A perfect amount of maple syrup in there to sweeten and smooth it all out.
