Sparky foam. Good aroma of a little malt and hops. The taste is excellent with both pineapple, mango, a little sweet caramel malt and tropical fruits that are hard to define. A semi-dry woody aftertaste sets a fine balance in its fullness and it is an excellent IPA that is not so aggressive in the hoppy bitterness. The carbonation is very low, almost absent, and I could miss a little more carbon dioxide in this IPA. I think it would raise its level slightly.

Tessic (1140) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2017
This IPA poured a slightly cloudy colour with a rocky, off white head. Not bad lacing. Scents include bread, gravy and candy? First swig was a little thin but flavourful. Tastes of malt, dough and hops. Finish is medium bitter with malt goodness lingering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FinnIckler (391) - GERMANY - FEB 14, 2017
Bottle from Maruhn, bottled in April 2016 if I read the label right. Pours amber. Nose is apricot, orangepeel, faint bubblegum and berries. The oldness shines through in the palate, not much fruityness left, some apricot, citrus, mostly bitterness. Even stings a bit in the back of the throat. Has seen better days.

Crockett (1116) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2016
Pours clear honey amber with a tall foamy off-white lacing head. Nose of pine, and citrus hops translating to the flavour. Includes some deep herbal, and burnt grass notes. Body is medium/high. Lots of carbonation. Alcohol seemed well hidden... but it is very warming. Puckering acidity. But its got a good amount of fruity, well toasted malts. Berries, icing sugar, pie crust. Pine, antiseptic. It isnt balanced at all. And sure, the hop selection is interesting... but its still pretty 2 dimensional. I keep forgetting how assertive this beer is. I rarely buy any. But, its ridiculously good for a Moosehead owned company. And, I think we can all be thankful that it has been left alone and not buggered up. It gets an extra point or two for that.

Golden color with small head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is bitter but not very strong. Nice IPA, but a simple one
