Pint .9 into a stemmed NOHO 25th anniversary vast glass. Pours a beautiful orange, gold, tan, hazel brown meshed color with a sunshine background. Head is large the rising as the brew is poured. Almost invites you exclusively for the journey ahead. Aroma is fantastic, with wondrefully blended citrus, pine, and hops all seemingly to be super fresh. Taste is sweet at first, hoppy next, a tad bitter, then hoppy and organic thoughout. Such an excellent ipa here, def worth the 7.95 I ponied up for this. After taste is sweet, hoppy and inviting, with the mouthfeel medium and distinctivly fresh. This is such a well balanced ipa, so appealing to the pallate, it can not be put down! Love Maine beer.

Amazing aromas of mango and lemon, bread, spruce, honey. Tastes more in the neighborhood of pineapple, but the hops are really intense and bring a nice pine sweetness to the malt. And yet the bitterness of the hops comes through and is balanced throughout the palate. Wonderful, all around. Active, dense, small bead head with lots of small carbonation and plenty of lacing. drsordr (2778) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2017

Draught. Pours a hazy amber-y gold with a medium, foamy off-white head. Aroma is mango, citrus, pine, dough, floral hops, and light soap. Taste is mango, bread, grass, pine, some lemon, and resin. Tiny amount of buried grapefruit. Slightly earthy finish. Moderately bitter, although it grows in bitterness the more you drink. Light-medium body. Moderate carbonation. Creamy-ish mouthfeel. Mouth is lighter than expected - almost a touch watery - and resin is a bit palate fatiguing. Taste is surprisingly soft. Boutip (6433) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2017
