COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A heavily-hopped, West Coast-style IPA. Bold, complex flavors with a solid malt backbone and assertive hop profile, along with cold conditioning give this beer its crisp, clean finish.

12oz can (9/16 batch) into glass, pours semi-clear dark orange with 1 finger head. Nose is dank, musty, grassy citrus. Mouthfeel is carbonated, smooth, bit of a bite, malty. Taste is crisp, grassy malt, evergreen, lemon, bitter, grains. Finish is biscuity, lemongrass. Pretty well done. Sessionable. Good.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2013
Gravicask, at the American Bar, GBBF 2013, day 3. Orange coloured body, slightly hazy. Citrus hoppy nose. Fine blended flavours of fruity hops, sappy berries and caramel malts followed by a rather solid bitter ending. Well-made IPA, likable (London Olympia 15. 08.2013)

16 oz. draft. Golden amber hazy pour, good lacing. Smell is a hop smack with grapefruit and orange detectable. Taste is hop forward, lots of pine and bitterness and a touch of grapefruit. Very enjoyable IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good ipa with lots of citrus elements without a ton of bitterness. Easy to drink with very little bitterness.

Beese (1463) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2013
Cask at Great British Beer Festival 2013. Poured an amber/ yellow colour with a halo of rocky, white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and sherbet. Orange peal and tropical fruit flavours which turn to rounded, increasing bitter hop resin notes with a biscuity malt backbone.

jdobbs (331) - New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
Flavor is pleasant enough with a bite from citrus and resin (mostly resin) and a kind of slick and almost chewy mouthfeel. It’s a decent IPA, but not a very interesting one... Almost comes off like a DIPA with the malty and chewy palate

Can. Grabbed a can of this at the last gas station before Baxter State Park in Millenocket ME. My wife’s family has a camp nearby. This was a real treat and suprise. Piney, zippy, and straightforward. A classic IPA. Great work and good to see some new stuff coming out of Lewiston.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This woodsy IPA shares plenty of leafy, grassy, earthy and wooden resins, toppling residual sugars and taking control of the very bitter finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam sits atop the misty amber shine.
-The mouthfeel is comfortable, cushion-y.
-Alcohol is felt here and there, strangely enough.
-Malt flavors are shy.
-There isn’t much flavor definition in the middle.
-This IPA looks great, feels great, but is otherwise a bit rough around the edges.

Can.

Can at Brewdown. Pours cloudy gold with white head. Nose and taste of citrus bread, white sugar, grapefruit and caramel malt. Medium body.
