Much fruitier at the nose than I had expected. Solid hop kick to it with maltiness coming through as well. Very tasty stuff although the malt had some asking me if it was really an IPA.
Beautifully balanced IPA. Fairly malty for an IPA. Floral hops. A little bit earthy. outlawskies (480) - Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Julie says maybe if in a glSs it would be okay kind of Andy one all hop missing something. She gives a 1.0

Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a clear amber body with a lumpy super bubbly foamy head, some light lacing.
The smell had hops, pine, malts.
The taste was bittersweet through the pine, and hops, subdued malts.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light, watery, sessionable, no aftertaste, malty finish.
Overall, it was decent for the style, but I’m unsure if I would pursue this again. Imaena (2322) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JUN 14, 2013
Draught. This is not one of my favorite beers by Gritty’s. Its decent but nothing special. AirForceHops (7233) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 12, 2012
12 oz. bottle in a four pack from Grays Beverage. Over-carbonated. Had to pour extremely slow and wait as the head died to pour the other 6 oz. of beer from the bottle. Well, the retention last for a good while. Hazy copper in color. Aroma has sweet citrus, caramel and honey. Lots of malt at the back end, not finding much in the way of hops or bitterness. Lots of biscuit, bread malts. The body is medium with a smooth texture. Very sweet and more like a Pale Ale then an IPA or I had some old stuff. Either way it is much better than I thought it would be.

Now named "Maine's Best IPA," this IPA doesn't disappoint. Very rich hoppiness with good malt balance. Flavor is really good. One of the best IPAs out there.

Labelled as "Maine’s Best IPA". Meh. I haven’t had them all but I doubt this is true. Aroma of pine hops and dry light toffee malts. Taste has a definite pine hop bitterness kick that dries out the palate. Some sweetness and biscuity from the malts balances it nicely.

Cask at GBBF. Clear brown beer. Semi dry and semi soft palate. Rich hops. Not too bitter. Well balanced with some rich malt. Tasty and full of flavour but not in your face.
