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.

One of the Best IPAs I have had in a long time. Nice earthy aroma...Taste is bold with a great west coast hop vibe but mouth feel is not overwhelming. Finishes crisp.

My latest go to IPA! While definitely NOT a session beer, well worth adding a bit of bite to top off your day! On tap slightly smoother than can but both an intense time!

Aroma: Nose fully of complex west coast hop fruit - passion fruit, mango tropicals most pronounced. Appearance: Bright orange to light brown w/ unfiltered haze. Taste: Great complex hop flavor with a perfect complementary malt light sweetness. Palate: Full bodied hop punch with just enough malty background to support it. Overall: One of, if not the best truly balanced high hop American IPAs. A must buy when and where you can get it.

Draft. Pours caramel in color with off white head that lingers. Hop aroma up front. Nice hop flavor that isn't overwhelming but not complex or boozy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GBBF. Hazy amber beer, tidy off white head. Light semi dry palate. Mild fine carbonation. Lovely juicy hops - marmalade with fresh hop sting. Red berry fruits. Pine and grass. Semi dry finish. Hop sting linger. Very drinkable and quite lovely.

strong hop resin aroma, nice copper slightly hazy color, opens a little sweet and closes with a bitter bang. A hop lovers choice, in cans. Canít wait to try it on a hot day!

I luckily found a six pack on this on a recent trip to Maine, and itís the first beer Iíve chosen to drink since I got home today. Nice clear orange-brown color. The malt really balances out the hops in the nose, and the taste reflects that, too. A really good IPA, wish I had picked up more than one six pack.

Smooth, calm, and hoppy, this Maine brew flows freely. So danity and fresh, the hops roudn out the malt backbone with fluent persistance. Theres an amber ambivalance that strikes home well, yet the ipa stands storng in the aftertaste. Fresh hoppy taste, a bit organic, dark bronzed color with red, if poured fast the head is an welcome opener to this fine brew as it engulfs the glass and almost pours over(pint). A very fresh and hoppy experience from ME that is well enjoyed.
