4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 Poured from 22 oz bottle. As soon as I cracked the bottle open I was hit in the nose with a big citrus aroma. I don’t know that I’ve experienced that before. Pours cloudy copper color with white head. Aroma is Citrus with pineapple and pine. Big hop forward flavor. Citrus, pineapple and big grapefruit flavors. This is a very dry beer, no malt sweetness. Really nice beer. I have also had on tap at the brewery.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very aggressive hoppiness in this beer, with a very strong grapefruit hop presence. Very solid for an IPA, but could use a little more balance of malt to counter the hops.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Wine Source. Pours hazy orange, nice white head with a ton of lacing. Aroma is fruity (pineapple, citrus) and hop heavy. Flavor is very well balanced, hop and malt, with more fruitiness coming through. Mouthfeel is very smooth, moderate carbonation, very slight bitterness to the finish. Perhaps the most drinkable 7% IPA I’ve ever had. The best offering I’ve had from Maine Beer Co.
