4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 6/25/12 so yeah its fresh.
I lucked into this bottle because a good friend had my back, thanks Bert. Pours a slightly hazy deep golden amber color with a huge meringue like head that leaves lots of stickies on the way down. This smells incredible! Grapefruit, pine, resin, a bit of tangerine or orange, and hardly any barley to be found. The flavor follows the aroma obviously. There’s a splash of bready malt somewhere in the beginning before the resinous pine and citrus onslaught. Nice tropical fruit flavors coming through along side the dank sticky pine and resin. Finish is fairly dry with a pleasant lingering hoppy bite. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. If this beer wasn’t so damn hard to get and so highly priced I would drink these all the time, its a beautiful beer. Maine beer, you make wonderful brews, but the 16oz bottles and your high price point turn a lot of people off. /end rant

Pours an orange copper with a thin, lacy head. Aroma of dank hops, in your face. Taste follows but brings in a nice malt backbone. Very tasty, well crafted beer.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2012 Pilsner appearance. Smells of citra and centennial hops. Grapefruit and orange zest. Yeah. Bug citrus taste. Minor toasted malts and cloves. Cinnamon and pepper. Mouthfeel is 79% carbonation light body. Overall, pretty nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, caramel malts, and light fruits. Flavor really strong of citrusy and piney hops. Average to smooth texture. A good beer.
Edit 3-1-13: Upgraded from 3.8 to 3.9. With a bottle that’s 10 days old, the hops really stand out. A great IPA.

Tap. Minimal eggshell head; light coppery orange. Very dank, grapefruit rind, cat piss, and tropical fruit notes. Same for the flavor, with pineapple rind and cattiness coming to the front more. Lighter to medium slick body. Kills it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Battleship. Pours a clear light golden/orange color with a semi thick white head. Aroma is basically full of hops, citrus, and wheat. Flavor is of very pungent grassy hop and dry hop notes up front with some citrus in the background. There is also wheat present. Leaves a nice lacing on my mug. Finish is full of, yup you guessed it, hops.

Excellent. Orangish hue with white fluffy head. Nice bitters and malt backbone. Little bit of sweetness in the aftertaste as well. Very solid IPA.

Draft. Pour is orange with a white head, good retention/lace. Aroma of floral, citrus, lemon hops, caramel malt, cracker. Taste is very fruity, citrus (mango, grapefruit, mandarin orange hops), light resin, caramel, cracker, light earth. Palate is dry, a bit oily, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Superb. Easily a top IPA.
