UPDATED: APR 4, 2014 Pours copper with a tan head. Smells of hay, spruce, citrus, sage, earthy. Great balance on the nose. Tastes of resiny hops, some melon, grapefruit, honey, pepper, spicy. Very assertive, but carefully balanced. Excellent!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a brown/orange colored body with a one finger white foamy head that takes a good minute before slowly dieing. Some nice speckled spider-web lacing leads gently into the body. Some light carbonation is seen rising.
The smell is sweet with some light hops entering in with a bit of pine and citrus.
The taste is sweet, once again, but the hops are fairly strong with a mild citrus taste.
The palate is about a light to medium with nothing harsh on the tongue, sessionable.
Overall, out of all Sebago’s offerings, this is probably my all time favorite brew by them.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(22 oz. bottle from Global Beverage) Pours hazy caramel-amber with two fingers of light yellowy-biscuit head. Big aroma of grapefruit, citrus and light pine over caramel and vanilla. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, a touch prickly with some hop huskiness. Staunch, sticky sheets of lacing cling to inside of shaker. Flavor of lightly biting grapefruit and citrus over sugary, almost grainy caramel along with vanilla. Light pine and fruit. Medium-heavy bitter bite from fore through finish with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Nice, fresh hoppy presence with a good malt backbone.
