Deep auburn. Nose slightly citric and hoppy, also a mite soapy. Flavor doesn’t have much citric or floral character to the hops, more just bitter. Some caramel malts.

Pours a deep amber with a rocky off-white head. Aroma is malty and lightly hoppy. Taste is earthy and floral with caramel malt and a solid hop presence. Mouthfeel is full, round and creamy. Bitter aftertaste. Feels like a British IPA crossed with a bitter. Overall, not bad. But not your typical hoppy US-style IPA.

Dark copper body, medium head and lacing. Aroma is hops with some sweetness. Taste is medium bodied, toffee sweet bready malts with the hops jumping into the mix early - pine resin, grapefruit citrus - this is pretty well hopped, just like I like ’em!!!!! Got this for a very reasonable price at trader joe’s.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2006 My favorite local IPA by far. I’m not much for lighter beers, but this one I really like a lot. Good sweet taste with a nice short aftertaste. 6/3/06 re-rate I’ve had a few more IPA’s since this one and i’ve realized where it’s true place belongs. It’s not hoppy enough, need more bitterness and more body. A mediocre IPA at best.

smells hoppy, with a wierd hop smell unlike any ive smelled- must be some different kind of hop. pours dark brown in color. taste is not too bitter but very rich tasting. a nice IPA, but not as refreshing as i would have hoped an IPA would be. good brew though

Interesting thing with this and their Brown .... it's richer and broader in the bottle. The draft version is a more typical "water spiked with hop" IPA taste. Bottled it's more complex and balanced ... less dominated by the hop.

The carmal flavor comes in the middle and is a nics touch to this ipa. Also has a nice golden color.

(draft) Clear copper body with creamy beige head, leaving a nice full lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is mild sweet, floral, some earthy, slightly fruity. Taste is floral, slight berry, light earthy. Finish is earthy/floral. Medium body. Seems more ESB-ish than IPA.

For all you Mainards out there this is a must have. Don't sell yourself short and go for that Casco Bay shit. Believe me, I've been to the Brewery and all, this place is legit. They brew a quality micro and take pride in it. Have fun.
