COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our ďEast CoastĒ 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.

Traded bottle. Oh, thatís good IPA. Absolutely gorgeous with a big, fluffy white head. Big aroma that starts sweet and finishes with some pine resin. Pretty pleasant flavor, not over-the-top. Nice lingering bitterness. Pretty well done.

Almost brown malts, carbon, crystal, burnt toast. Grass and pine in the nose. Refreshing, solid fluff and lace. Grapefruit end with sugar and water also lingering in the palate.

Bottle from The Beer Store. Pours a dark gold/orange with a solid 2 finger white head. Head recedes slowly leaving copious lace. As you might expect, huge hoppy aroma leaning towards the citrus/grapefruit side. Bitter flavor, but nicely balanced. Hops are dominant, but donít attempt to blundgeon you. Some nice malt sweetness for balance. Moderate bodied and just a bit oily. Bitter finish. Outstanding.

Hugely enjoyable and red-amber in color. Strong hop aroma, mellower taste. Bitter yet drinkable. Again, strong.

Thanks to GatorGuy92 for the share. Cheers, Matt! Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is citrus orchard, kumquats, butterscotch (not diacetyl but uber sweet caramel), orange, and tangerine. Flavor is a lesser version of the nose; light malt, orange, and some kumquats with some peach and sweet caramel. Finish is somewhat dry with light oranges.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2012 Rerate..1st time at Novare in Portland..enjoyed at home..pour into MBC glass..very impressive 1.5 finger head, pillowy..great orange color..citrusy aroma, lemony presence..nice undertone of piney hops..very solid single ipa..not easy to find..perhaps will be more available as distribution footprint spreads..one of the finer single ipaís out there, not extremely bitter but just right for a hophead....very drinkable and not overly bitter on the end..mouthfeel and lacing are quite good and there is plenty of good things going on in this one...Bottle about 45 days old...

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle: Pours a hazy orange with a large white fluffy head, aroma has intense pine and citrus with oranges dominating, starts and ends very bitter with a juicy grapefruit aftertaste, medium bodied, subtle carbonation, slick mouthfeel. It looks like the west coast IPA has meet its match from the east.

Bottle shared with atom. Pours a disgusting looking dark, hazy, peach color with a creamy white head. Looks gross. Not a lot in the aroma immediately, but a good swirl really opens the aroma up. Pineapple, mango, pine, and flowers comprise the aroma. Quite interesting combo. Flavors of flowers, pineapple, sticky pine, tropical fruit, and caramel. Very full bodied for an IPA. Almost creamy at times. No real bitterness in the finish on this. Looks like shit, tastes kinda better. Although, this doesnít seem as good, or the same, as the last time I had it.

Atom (1587) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Bottle thanks to secret santa pours a murky amber/orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is kinda a wet wet dog with some citrus, mellow hops, and caramel. Taste is mellow citrus that all of a sudden pops tart and falls back into more citrus and finishing on bitter pine. Overall mellow and easy drinking, but a bit disappointing. Possible a causality of the heat wave.

Bottle shared by atom. Upon pouring this Iím reminded of all the shits Iíve taken after eating Minneapolis Public Schoolsí lunches. Murky, light brown, with a small white head. Seriously, thatís the type of shits I took after eating those lunches. Lightly fruity aroma with peach and nectarine. Taste is malty with some orange and grapefruit coming through. Mainly itís just caramel and cardboard with a pine and lemon solvent-like finish. Slightly astringent. My least liked Maine offering, and really this isnít that good. Maybe itís a bad bottle.
