3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp, slightly hazy golden and lightly copper body with a thinnish, two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of fresh hops, pine, citrus, resin and dank hops all with a touch of sweetness noticeable in the nose. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive fresh hop flavour with a lot of grass, hay, pine, grapefruit and very pungent citrus flavours, all with a well supportive malt backbone and some sweetness from apricot and peaches. Aftertaste is well-balanced with a great fresh hop flavour, but an equally present malt and sweetness that shows very well throughout. Overall, a very nice IPA with a great profile and amazing balance - surprising and delicious! Great to sample, given this is my first trip to Maine and I was able to find this at a 7-11! I sampled this twelve ounce can next door to my hotel at a 7-11 in Portland, Maine, available as a single can for US$2,29 sampled in my hotel room a few minutes later on 28-July-2016.

On draft. I had no expectations, but this still surprised me. The base beer is clean and neutral and allows the hop profile to dominate. The hops are mostly pine, although there was some resin and citrus too. Nothing crazy, just a very well done West Coast IPA.

This is a copper color brew with a bitter aspirin flavor. It smells like woody pine and aside from being heavy and sweet there is nothing else wrong with it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can pour into nonic pint glass from Julio’s Liquors. Aroma is strong fruit and citrus. Appearance is beautiful, clear, dark copper with minimal attractive sparkle, two-finger width fluffy white head after aggressive pour and nice sudsy lacing. Taste is surprisingly forward sweet malt (mainly caramel) with fruit and citrus with bitter ending. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin, slightly sticky texture, average carbonation (could be a tad more) and bitter, dry, crisp finish. Overall, this is a nice IPA. Good West Coast flavor without getting overly bitter. Surprising amount of malt in the flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
APPEARANCE- light amber with a golden hue, head pours perfectly white and laces nicely.
NOSE- Light aroma of fruity hop. just the right amount.
FLAVOR- strongly resinous flavors abound, but do not overpower my tastebuds. Enough fruitiness in the hop to keep it light.
NOTES- really well balanced ipa.
