Very good for an amber. Large white head that dissipates slowly. Smell is very hop foreward for the style.

500ml bottle into an English pint. Pours a gorgeous opaque amber, with lasting off-white head and plenty of lacing. Nose is big-time citrusy hops with grapefruit predominant. Similar citrus flavour, but a bit lighter on the palate. Good hoppy, bitter bite to it. As usual, a solid Maine Beer Co. brew! Probably better sampled mid-summer.

Gorgeous dark amber color. Huge notes of pine, citrus and tropical fruit. It just explodes out of the bottle as soon as you open the top. It smells like some of the best IPA’s out there. Taste is like biting into a fresh grapefruit. Really big grapefruit and tropical fruit. The "hoppy, hoppy" part is definitely there. For an "amber ale" it tastes like some of the best IPA’s out there. Better than a lot of them as well. This is the first Maine Brewing beer I have had and I highly recommend it. Absolutely delicious. Cheers!

Poured out of a 22 oz bottle. A deep Amber color, pleasant aroma of light hops. First sip had plenty of malt, the rest of the glass the hops showed
Up. They were not overpowering like many hyper hopped beers. A great, clean Amber.

A good rich ipa. Not overpowering bitter. Not a lot else to me outside of the usual ipa flavor though

It has a strong bitter kick immediately and then dies off. The hops are potent with a sharp bitter taste. You could easily mistake this for an IPA.

Bottle from Philly craft. Interesting brew with a bit going on. Notes of Pine needles, caramel malts, lemon, grapefruit and citrus. Finishes piney and sweet, with a dry bitterness. Odd , but good.

Dark amber foamy poor. Hoppy smell of roasted malty delight and medium bodied. Very nice dry finish. Give Zoe a swig. Cheers

On tap at Maine Beer Co. Pour was an amber/copper color with an eggshell colored head that lasts for a while...only settling to a cap before I finished. Nice aromas of dank pine, grapefruit rind and a sweet cereal base. Taste was nice bitter hops upfront..plenty of earth and pine...balanced by a nice grapefruit/orange peel middle ground before some sweet roasted malted goodness balance out a juicy, lingering hop finish. Solid!!
