Our “East Coast” version of a West Coast-style IPA. Intense hop flavors and aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and pine dominate. A subtle malt sweetness brings the beer into balance.

Bottle shared with northropfrye. Didn’t get much aroma but what little I could smell I liked. Kind of yeasty. Appearance - what a remarkable head, like an ice cream float. Taste was hoppy with a pine needle aftertaste. Palate was burny, so lively and effervescent it kind of burned. I like this beer.

Thanks DuffMan for this one! Alright, so I knew going into it that it wasn’t a fresh bottle, which is not ideal for an IPA. Still, I could tell this is a great IPA even if it wasn’t at it’s prime. Lovely golden orange body with foamy off white head and loads of lacing. Citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Taste is subtly bitter, some pine and nuts, sweet malt, cucumber, hops. I’m guessing a bit of the bitterness has faded and the palate is a bit soft. Overall, though, considering the age of the bottle, it’s a very nice IPA. Glad I got the chance to try it.

Pours a cloudy orange with an off white lacing. The aroma is citrus forward, with grapefruit and some pine. Not as flavorful as expected.

One of the best iPas on the market. Unbelievably smooth and not overly bitter. Perfect blend of hopps and citru make this hard to beat. Very light aroma of citrus. Had at 3 aces. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2015 Freshly bottled this beer is sublime. The aroma is very dank herbal and floral with subtle notes from the malt. The flavor has a lot going on. It’s spicy and herbal while also floral and earthy and finishes cleanly bitter. Over time on the shelf or in the celler, if that’s ever allowed to happen, the hop flavors soften leaving a more pronounced sharp bitterness. This is a beer I’d love to see released in cans, adding additional stability to the flavors!

Bottle and yet the same pint glass as the other two Maine beers before it: Clean golden hue with a huge head and very good lace. (where have I heard this before)... The aroma has dank notes, herbal and resiny esters along with some citrus and tropical tones as well. The malt base is grainy and biscuity with a slight kilned character. The taste is more balanced than many west coast styled IPA’s but it is not sweet either. The dankness luckily is more an accent than a "maine" character. Slight herbal and peppery finish. The mouth feel whilst lively should in fact be crisper more akin to the sub-genre. Overall a nice IPA but honestly not all than memorable.

Pours clear gold with a large white head. Aroma is juicy orange and lemon, very fresh citrus.. Light pine. Taste is consistent with nose, orange and lemon zest, mild pine, slightly bready, nice bitter hop finish. Fairly dry, lightish side of medium body. Strong carbonation.

Hazy orangey gold in color, nice white colored head, good lacing, Aroma of grapefruits, citrus, tropical fruits. Flavor followed, big huge bitter bite, resinous, piney, just lovely. The mouthfeel was the most standout of all elements, gritty, grainy, lovely. Full bodied. A nice IPA.

4/III/14 - 1Pt. 9Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - bottled: I/28/14 (2014-244) Thanks to ajax25g for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark blond beer, creamy irregular off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, passion fruit, mango, pineapples, sweet ripe fruits, bit piny, amazing! I could keep sniffing this all night. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: piny start, very bitter, some citrus, blueberries, fruity stuff, grapefruit. Aftertaste: lots of grapefruit, some unripe mango, very bitter, little watery impression, citrus, piny, resinous hops. Smelled VERY promising, but sort of disappointed a bit, cause it was less fruity than it smelled. I’d love some more malty sweetness to balance it out even more. Still, a very great beer.
