3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taster at the source. Pours orange gold with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit hops, perhaps a touch of pineapple. Backbone is very light pale malt, with citrus and pine hop. A good session.

Verte et pleine d’agrumes, l’amertume est franche mais se dissipe doucement. Buvabilité absurde.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ brewery. Aroma of clean big potent juicy tropical fruits. Clementines. Oranges. Tangerjnes. Passion fruit pined apple. Nice. Taste is moderate to heavy grassy bitterness. Dry. Hint of resin finish. Slight nod to peeper which is more balanced. But great clean beer. And juicy fruit aroma is real good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent session ale. Well-balanced without being overly extreme in bitterness or hops profile. Pours orange clear without much head or lacing. Drank this at brewpub listening to some cheesy R. Kelly and it was certainly suitable sessioning material. Medium bitter finish. Some grapefruit in nose. Average carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fresh at the brewery. Amber gold, not much head. Tropical fruit and ripe citrus aroma. Some flower essence and pine resin in the flavor profile. Smooth balanced finish. Definitely put this in the rotation!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at the brewery, sampled alongside a 3 hour old batch of Another One; what a life! This stuff is freakishly good. Hazy, peach colored pour with a beautiful frothy white head. Nose and flavor bring characteristics of all of these hops; that beautiful, insanely dank scallion and onion freshness combined with some hints of mango and apricot from the Falconer’s Flight, pine and spruce from the Simcoe, and big pink grapefruit and orange zest as well. Clean, dry as hell, and absolutely outstanding.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 Golden color white head. On tap at Maine Beer Co. Big piney aroma. Flavor is nice hoppy piney flavor. Really nice.

Number 1000 -- what better company than Maine Beer for the ’milestone?’ The Session IPA is fantastically-made, just like all other beer from here. True hop profile without any noted detracting features often seen in this style. This is not a hoppy golden ale (see All-Day IPA). This is just an IPA done very very well, and at 5.3, it’s not terribly weak. Drink.

On tap @ the brewery. Bright orange body that offers more tropical fruit than the other offerings. Papaya, passionfruit, citrus all show up on the palate, filled with beautiful aromatics. Sweet and light, finishing bitter. Well-named-- I could session this forever!
