Pint .9 into a stemmed NOHO 25th anniversary vast glass. Pours a beautiful orange, gold, tan, hazel brown meshed color with a sunshine background. Head is large the rising as the brew is poured. Almost invites you exclusively for the journey ahead. Aroma is fantastic, with wondrefully blended citrus, pine, and hops all seemingly to be super fresh. Taste is sweet at first, hoppy next, a tad bitter, then hoppy and organic thoughout. Such an excellent ipa here, def worth the 7.95 I ponied up for this. After taste is sweet, hoppy and inviting, with the mouthfeel medium and distinctivly fresh. This is such a well balanced ipa, so appealing to the pallate, it can not be put down! Love Maine beer.

Got in a BIF with beerloserLI. 500 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/2/2015. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt balance; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for good bit. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly sticky, and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming after the finish. Overall this is an awesome IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

Pours a cloudy orangish yellow, huge frothy head and lacing. Pine, grapefruit, lemon on the nose. Citrus throughout, followed by a hefty helping of hops. Nicely balanced.

500ml bottle. Mostly clear golden pour with minimal head. Alot of pine hoppyness aroma. Taste follows....seems to have lost a little with age...bottled in November of 2014. Still really good.

Bottle shared by Tom - thanks! Citrus and pine - fairly dry. Slightly hazy orange-gold pour. This has about 7 months on it, which shows, but it’s still very good.

Drank from a rocks glass, poured from a large bottle as a sampler, thank your Brother Bob. Pours a nice orangey color with a bit of white head. Has a strong hoppy flavor, but the taste, and complexity of the hops are wonderfully done!

trapped (1305) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 25, 2015
Draught @ Alewife. Hazy rich orange with small whitish frothy head, faint citrus aroma, medium carbonation, smooth floral hopy taste with citrus peel at the background, very balanced medium hoppy finish. I was sceptical before tasting about the hype around the brew but I must admit that this is one if the smoothest IPAs I have ever tasted.

Piney smell. Taste is pretty much all piney hops. Just a big mouthful of hops. Yay.

Shared with sweetleaf on May 9, 2015. Brilliant golden body, partially opaque, with frothy, long-lasting head. Grassy, floral aroma with hints of sweet fruit. Zesty grapefruit taste. Peppery pine notes with a bit of funkiness. Light feel, but alcohol is noticeable. Relying on notes so will definitely have to delve into this one again.
