I picked up a bottle while in Maine. Pours a dark amber color, almost brown, with a tan head. Great aroma that you can smell when you open the bottle. Piney and grapefruit aroma fills the air. Taste allows you to pick up on the caramel notes that are barely detectable in the aroma. Upon further drinking toasted flavors start to dominate after getting paste the great cities hop flavor.

660ml bottle. Pours reddish brown with an off-white head. Immense, fruity aroma of American hops, lots of lemon, pine, grapefruit, even some apricots. Flavour is quite the same, with some malt to balance the hops. Best beer in this category I’ve tasted so far.
