Pours slightly hazed gold into a shaker. Bright white seafoam head with good retention craters as it recedes leaving spider lacing. Mango and papaya aromas. Soft with sweet caramel, guava and biscuit upfront turning to dry hot caramel and pith in the lasting finish. Slipstream (2709) - USA - JUN 21, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2017 Thanks to my brother for this new release from Maine. It pours nicely with a big bubbly head. A fine IPA, possibly fits into the New England category. Fairly dry and well balanced, notes of orange peel and standard IPAs. Hot house floral aroma. Very good. Named after a very nice mountain on Moosehead Lake.

Can, didn’t check the date, but assumedly quite fresh, shared by AFH on 5/20/17, thanks, Chris! GIJOE (1256) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 6, 2017
Hazy, not soupy, bright golden-brass body is topped by a sizable white head showing moderate retention.
Juicy fruits in the nose show a nice mix of tropical and citrus notes with a strong backing of malt (though it’s not too sweet or anything). Lots of biscuit and honey with a lovely freshness to the hops and quite balanced and mild overall. Not to say it’s too malt-forward; it’s certainly not, but it’s just a nice change of pace to get a little more mileage out of your base malt. Lingering lemon and grapefruit show little/no resin and it’s clean with no alcohol and low ester character.
Honey, tangerine, lemon and grapefruit with growing juiciness via tropical fruit notes (light mango and pineapple) and light but ample bitterness are all felt atop a soft, malty, but well-attenuated malt backbone. Low but engaging carbonation and a diverse range of citrus and other fruits with nothing dominating, nor any resin or big pine character. Soft, chewy, supple and very fruity. Almost Tree House like, but for the lack of a strong yeast signature. Great intro and excited to try more of their beers.
Pours a hazy yellow-orange color with a frothy white head. Nose is citrus blast with tropical notes a some piney, woodsy hints. Taste is quite well-balance even though the bitterness is pronounced. Nice bitter citrus pith on the aftertaste. Excellent brew.

Slightly hazy deep yellow with a thin white head. Dank pithy citrus with bits of sweet bready maltiness. Pretty tasty ipa from a new to me brewery.
16z can. Pours a hazy orange ochre color with two fingers of sticky white foam. Nose is bright citrus, with soft underlying tropical notes and a touch of sweetness mingles with some slight dank woodsy notes. Palate is fresh and pretty juicy with flavors that follow the nose quite well . The sweetness balances the bitterness quite nicely and the finish isn’t sticky but laced with some nice bitter citrus pith and a touch of earthy grain.
