COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A base of pale, Munich, and Carapils malts is just enough to contain the massive hop flavor and aroma packed into this highly drinkable IPA. A blend of four American hop varieties is added four times in the kettle and twice in the fermenter for a complex and layered hop experience. Best served at 45-50˚F in a tulip or English style pint glass.

Can. Pours hazy golden with a diminishing frothy off-white medium head. Aroma is pine, mango, juniper berries, tangerine, light grape, biscuit malt. Taste is moderate sweet, bitter and light sour. Body is light+, texture is oily, carbonation is moderate. Finishes balanced, bitter with light astringent juniper. The bitter and sour juniper notes seems somewhat off.

jcnielsen (1983) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Can picked up in Augusta, GA. Pours a golden color with white head. Hoppy, grassy, resiny aromas. Grassy, earthy, hoppy, and some breadiness in the flavors. Pretty hoppy.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1589) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2013
At the flying elk, Stockholm. A nice gold color with orange tints. A citrus & spice aroma & an ascetic bitter bind taste. Nice enough but too bitter & not complex enough for me.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2013
Can. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange body with a massive creamy off-white head. Nose is citric peel, wood glue, wet grass, hints of peaches and pale malts. A bit strange. Taste is floral grassy tones, mild peachy notes, sweet malts. Medium body, high carbonation. OK, but a bit weird in the aroma and rather one-dimensional. I expected more from a brewery like Westbrook, whose beers have impressed me on earlier occasions.

can. cloudy orange with a large, fluffed, white head and a lot of sediment. bright, salty, piney, lemon aroma. flavor is also very bright and hoppy with a saltiness and handfuls of lemony hops. medium light body with moderate carbonation. just the right amount of sweetness for balance. this a very nice ipa.

Benfi (519) - DENMARK - AUG 6, 2013
The pour produces a hazy, dark yellow body with a chunky, off-white head. Piney hop aroma. The flavor profile is lightly bitter from the start all the way through the long finish. Malts are there but they let the hops star.

Aromas of lemon grass, tangerine, and subtle honey. Clear orange with a fairly lasting, white head. Dry, bitter, and slightly grainy. Light-medium bodied, crisp, and finishes quickly with lingering citrusy hops.
