Fashioned after the famous ales from Burton-On-Trent which took on such bold character after surviving the long, rolling voyage from London to Calcutta in the days of the Empire. This is an amber colored masterpiece in the world of beer styles.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2006
I love IPAs, but I’ll probably give away the other Sea Dogs that I bought. Looks okay, weak smell with a bit of hops. The bottle reads best before Dec. 06, but there could be a problem here. The palete is heinous, almost a caricature of what an IPA should feel like in your mouth. Feels artificially bitter A real disappointment.

Found the aromas hard to detect after initial bottle opening. Until later when I spilled the beer on the floor did I actually get a scent of the IPA fruitiness. The appearance is of a dark amber/copper, with a surprisingly thick tan head. Lacks in power and shallow in bitter astringent flavors, instead favoring a sweeter fruity style of IPA. It’s a mild IPA, tolerable but better around in it’s price class.

<!-- B -->Bottle. <!-- /B -->A little cloudy pale gold. Teeny white head. Bready aroma which goes well with floral-yeasty tanginess. Too filling; I hate that. Bitter on back of tongue. Strong hops presence. Most likely my very least likable style, and this beer reaffirms that. Doubtful I will ever drink this again as it’s just not for me.

From a 12 oz. twist cap brown bottle with a notched best before along the left side of label, Aug/07. Poured a slightly hazy amberish copper with a foamy head that settled into a thin lacing. Aromas of leafy and floral hops, a slight buttery and sugary malts with a nice fruitiness, berry bubble gum-like. Moderate carbonation overall and a crisp, dry, softly textured lightish medium bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant tasting, leafy, floral hops with a soft bitterness, bready and light tasting caramel malts, a spicy nuttiness, and a dry leafy and bready malt finish, not bad, but an average tasting English IPA, decent drinkability. For the price, a nice IPA, tasty enough for $5.49 a six at Trader Joe’s.

This is a tasty IPA for a small Maine brewery! I really enjoy this IPA because it is a little hoppy and has a bit of a kick to it. Enjoyable.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Bottle. Pours thin amber, bubbly and a hollow head. Aroma is tangy sweet malt and old banana. Flavor is coppery strawberry. Palate is a bit thicker than expected. Not terrible, but not worth repeating.

Quevillon (2704) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2006
Bu au Mondial de la Bière 06. Légèrement ambrée, presque pas de collet. Arome typiquement houblonneux. Goût faible et pas trop impressionnent.

Terminus (3381) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 1, 2006
12oz bottle-burnt amber with a soapy lightly off-white head. aroma of piney hops, light butterscotch (a problem with shipyard beers) honeysuckle, appricots, but the diacytl is not that heavy here. Smells brittish (ringwood yeast? always gives out diacytl). flavors are toasted caramel malts, light piney and earthy hops with some dusty ester notes of mangos and mellons. body is somewhat fizzy but fairly full and coats the mouth. Not a bad british styled IPA, but not something i would try again.
