COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A ruby colored ale that has a pronounced hop character. This smooth beer features a soft malt body that is complimented by American hops and dry hopped with whole flower hops just prior to kegging for a fresh hop finish.

On tap at brewery. Brown/orange pour with foamy lasting head. Medium hops aroma with toast. Medium body carries some hops in front of caramel. Very nice session beer with complexity and character.

Extremely unique beer here, and definitely worth a try. Not sure if its one I’d have all the time, but I’ve never tried anything like it. Not even sure how to explain the flavor profile here. Neat.

GIJOE (920) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Pours a hazy amber with a thin, frothy, off-white head that stays awhile. Nose is fruity. Notes of caramel covered apple. Taste is sweet up front with a tart aftertaste. Medium bodied, highly carbonated. Quite drinkable.

Une mousse mince mais qui refuse de partir se pose sur une robe trouble de couleur ambrée. La dentelle est collante et permanente, créant ainsi un visuel très invitant. Au nez, c’est autant fruité (agrumes) que sucré (caramel brûlé), l’houblonnage semblant assez généreux, à ma grande surprise. Je ne sais pas quelle levure fut utilisée pour fermenter cette bière, mais elle est très phénolique. Combinez ça au malt caramel et aux houblons américains très fruités et vifs et vous obtenez une espèce de fusion entre une Saison, une IPA américaine et une IPA anglaise. Bien pétillante, bonne amertume en finale bref, c’est un très beau produit de nos amis du Vermont.

draft at brewery, decent, a little too sweet and faint hop aromas. Bland but a easy drinker, just a light boring ale.

Lukaduke (2657) - Gray, Maine, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a rusty amber color with a touch of eggshell foam. Lots of round malt, sweet honey, hints of citrus and dates. Touch light on the carbonation resulting in a slightly sticky body but the malt profile is quite focused and interesting.

Pretty decent amber ale. Pours copper amber with little head. Aroma is earthy light citrus, honey, caramel, and orange. Taste is mildly sweet with a dry finish. Very balanced yet unremarkable beer.
