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.

This one’s an easy five. You’re not going to get much better than this. It does everything right. Very tropical. Lot’s of pineapple and mango. Big citrus as well. This is the kind of ipa that makes you take a step back and say "holy shit that’s a good one" I love when I get my hands on an ipa that brings me full circle and shows me why I love the style so much. I think there are a lot of good ipa’s, and a handful of great ones. Most seem to get lost in the shuffle, but this one definitely stands out and I’ve heard so many good things that when I saw it immediately grabbed a bottle so I could try it. Glad I did it really is an excellent beer for true ipa lovers.

Thanks to dhatton, pours orange with a touch of haze and a medium white fluffy head. Aroma is citrus, light pine and hint florals...all hops. Taste is moderate bitters with a little sweetness underneath. Excellent IPA.

Beermack (716) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle thanks to thepatrickman - cheers! Hazy dark gold. Great orange, floral, and papaya leading on the nose with some light resin and shortcake. Big juice in the taste: tangerine, darker blood orange, a mix of dank and lighter tropical notes, moving on to light resin and a big grapefruit/lime bitter kick. Shortcake and light caramel represent the malt, frames the hop character rather than balances it. Long and slightly dank tropical finish with lighter floral notes lingering too. Cracker.

Wonderful nose. Poured golden with a fluffy, sticky head. Citrusy, piney, just about what you would call perfection in a bottle. Wish this was easier to get! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I could drink this all day. Great fruit nose, hoppy taste but malt balances well and isn’t a bitter bomb. Mixes fruit and pine really well.

Love the aroma, reminds me of the even more refined Dinner. Great fruity flavor, little bitterness. A slightly less refined version of Dinner overall, and a great daily drinker until Dinner is more available.

This is an amazing IPA. Beautiful balance. Grapefruit notes. Not distributed much at all, but find it if you can.

IPA complexe au parfums de fruits tropicaux, cette bière est une fière représentante de son style. D’une riche robe blonde/orangée, cette bière est surmontée d’un épais collet blanc et onctueux qui fait saliver. Mise en garde: servir délicatement! Au nez cette bière est un aller simple pour les tropiques. Ça transpire le punch aux fruits: kiwis, ananas, fraises, noyau de pêche. Mon Dieu que c’est frais et plein de vie! Une avalanche de fines bulles émanent sans relâche du fond du verre et invite à une dégustation des plus rafraîchissantes! En bouche on poursuit dans la même veine et l’effervescence piquotle agréablement le palais et confère à cette bière une texture plus sèche et minérale qu’attendue. Un côté marin s’ajoute aux fruits. Nous sommes vraiment au sein d’un splendide voyage sous les tropiques dont on ne veut revenir! C’est frais, nerveux, complexe et long en bouche. La présence du malt est parfaitement balancée aux houblons. Un énorme coup de coeur pour moi!
