500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours almost black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops plus a nice dark and caramel maltiness. Flavor the same with a good blend and a characteristic hoppiness of Maine Beer. Average to smooth texture. A good beer.

500ml bottle purchased atSpirits Point. Poured a black medium body under an average sized to larger foamy dark beige head. Aroma is very solid, notes of chocolate, roasted citrus fruit, pine, brown bread. Palate is solid, with a medium body, aversge carbonation and slightly syrupy. Flavor of chocolate syrup, citrus, roasty, burnt toast, roasted nut shells, dry pine needles. Good stuff.

AirForceHops (4804) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 4, 2014
16.9 oz. bottle with a bottled on date of 02- 04- 2014. Paid $5.99 at Carl’s Meat Market, Kittery. Thick tan head that receded slowly over the pitch black brew. Nose is roasted malt, pine and floral hops. The flavor is not overly bitter and balanced nice with, roasty, and chocolate malt’s and a touch of ash. Hints of ground coffee, and floral and pine hops in the finish. Medium bodied with a real drying mouthfeel. Really nicely crafted.

JulienHuxley (4445) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very pretty opaque black with a lasting lacy thick brown foam. Aroma is quite chocolaty, light roasty notes, characteristic Maine Beer Co hopping, grapefruit. Taste is an intense shot of bitter dark chocolate and hops, but both flavors are rather well equaled and present something more like a generously hopped stout than a darkened IPA. Palate is creamy and satisfying. Good.

Bottled 12/31/13, drunk on 2/1/14
Bottle conditioned pour produces a compact, charred-tan head that recedes to cover, leaving plentiful lace atop a dark mahogany body, moderately high clarity.
Yep, smells like Maine Beer Co hop profile; fresh, fruity hops show off cherry, candied orange, lychee and ruby red grapefruit. The dark malts mask some of the strong resin/alcohol burn, but are surprisingly very masked themselves, showing off only a bit of chocolate graham cracker like maltiness. Medium strength of aroma, still some alcohol vapors that I get with all of their beers. Really like the fresh, leafy hop acids.
Subdued on the dark malts, just as in the nose, with just a light, pleasant tobacco dryness and light pruniness. Base malt sweetness is well-attenuated and comforting on the palate, aided by the light but engaging carbonation. The amarillo hops are delicious, adding the fresh, green, lush citrus hoppiness, while the simcoes are a bit overbearing in their brash bitterness but add their characteristic cherry-melon-like "sweetness" and plenty of acidity. The cascade and centennial combine and keep the finish very citrusy, somewhat piney and somewhat more resinous than I prefer. As with most of their beers, they come off very aggressive, assertive and somewhat overdone with the combination of alcohol and acidity. Nonetheless, the quality that goes in to the actual brewing is bursting forth, even if the recipes don’t really suit my tastes.

Bottle. Pours opaque black with thick, creamy tan head. Aroma is earthy and pine hops, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and some woody notes. Flavor is dry, roast malts forward quickly followed by rich hop bitterness and some dried dark fruit; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Black pour from bottle. Huge chocolate and cocoa taste. Coffee too. Smooth but still a pretty hoppy beer. Really enjoyable
