Flavor is balanced malts and fresh hop bitterness with some citrus esters and faint toast; dry finish with a touch of grassy hops. Medium body and low carbonation.

Vballnbeer (158) - Gorham, Maine, USA - JUL 7, 2013
What the pale ale lacks in hop flavor, the IPA makes up for. This is their best beer by far and it is a good one. It is strong in taste and pretty strong in alcohol. Great hop in the brew and a nice dry hop finish make this a solid brew and worth a stop on the way to Maine. Don’t get the sampler, just a pint of this.

Bottle shared by B3C. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy complex tart hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is another very good beer.

Aromas of leafy hops with a tinge of orange zest. Hoppy citrus orange, lemongrass and pine. Light on the palate. Overall a very good IPA.

AirForceHops (2722) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Draft @ brew pub on 31 Oct 11. Served in a pint. Bright hazy orange color. Citrus hop nose. Thick full head, some retention. Nice blend of citrus and pine hops, with a decent amount of malt to balance it. Nothing that will blow away an IPA lover but… it is a very clean and refreshing. Bitterness is moderate. Could be borderline hoppy APA or a light, mild IPA. Good overall.
