4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
From the bomber, it pours a beautiful golden copper and yields the same color body. A great two inch foamy white head appears and lasts for at least a good two minutes. There is some spider web lacing speckling the sides of the glass. The smell has a good complexity of hops and malts, some sweet, some bitter, and some spicy. The taste has a peppery yet piney sort of flavor that to me that I really like. The palate is superb as it is not watery nor is it sharp, a perfect feel on the tongue. Overall, I was not expecting this IPA to be this good, but this is really awesome.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at source. Pours honey golden, white frothy head. Aroma is earthy pine, sweet tropical fruits, really nice. Flavor is, as the brewery says, Orchard fruit. Almost like orange, tangerine, and cantaloupe and apple maybe? Or pear. It?s different but good. Really solid. Maybe a bit of caramel malt is throwing it off. But it?s good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Hannaford Supermarket Exeter. Aroma is hoppy pine and spruce with light citrus scent. Appearance is hazy gold with 2 inch foamy white head, mild foamy lacing, and minimal sparkling. Taste is balanced light bitter and sweet and similar to smell. Palate is medium bodied with carbonation that complements the beer but does not demand attention. Light balanced bitter/sweet moderate finish. Overall, a very refreshing IPA that is definitely hoppy but knows how to balance it out and refrain from going overboard.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gift from dlovell2, thanks! Hazy golden pour with lots of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. White head. Aroma is big citrys hop and biscuits. Taste has hint of malt sweetness and loads of citrus hop flavors, some tropical like mango too but mainly grapefruit, clementine, lime, etc. Nice pine bitterness from start to finish too, citrus in the linger. Another amazing Maine IPA. Great beer to celebrate my 600th rating.
