Iím a huge hop head and this honestly has blown me away... Coming from VT (Heady Topper land) Iíve had some amazing IPAís and DIPA (Second Fiddle, Mastermind, Fair Maiden, Sip of Sunshine, Hill Farmstead Abner) in my home state and this ranks up with the best of those for itís style. Visited the little "industrial park/storefront brewery" and was amazed by their dedication and love for their beers... A much better stop than Maine Beer Co... Fun place, great beer... Worth a "Substantive" trip to Maine!

So much hops that youíd think itís an IPA, and it might as well be. Yellowish orange in color with foamy head and lacing. Lemon, grapefruit, soap, resin in the nose. A big hop spice in the flavor, which surprised me based on the aroma. A bit metallic too. Decent stuff.

Dank piney lemony apa with lots of hop bite without much bitterness. Easy drinking and reminds me of Amarillo and simcoe hops.
