It is what it is and that is a great Am Pale Ale hopped up on Sorachi Ace and Citra. Nothing wrong. It’s an excellent representation of the unique style!

On tap at Novare Res. Best beer from Marshall Wharf yet. Ace hole is mind blowing. Pours an innocent looking amber yellow. Thin quickly dissipating head. Aroma is your first hint of what’s to come...there’s a hint of sweetness and fruitiness to the aroma. Then one sip, and BAM this is an IPA made with Sorachi Ace hops. The taste is out of this world. It’s like a hoppy mango slice with awesome dusted on top. Dare I say my new favorite beer from Maine? Simply incredible.

Draft. Brown pour with creme head that lingers. Nice hop aroma. Hop flavor with sweet tones, like caramel. Unique flavor combination that I would instinctively avoid but very much enjoyed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can, thanks to JBPortland! Pours clear orange, medium puffy off-white head, creamy with nice lacing. Aroma is citra baby, mango, grapefruit, dank pine needles, butter. Flavor is similar, a bit buttery with tropical fruit bombs, some pine as well. Not sure what the Sorachi Ace is contributing per se, but this is a pretty tasty beer, better than its ratings. Light sweet and light bitter, with no harshness. Medium body and some creaminess. This is tasty.

From the 16 fl. oz. can dated 5/14/16. The pour is a slightly foggy yellow color with busy carbonation building up to a soft, foamy off-white head. Nice citrus and fruity hop aromas on the nose along with toasted bread and biscuit. Medium or better body. The toasted sweetness is firm but the citrus hops really roar in to add some punch but they do not overtake.

Draft in Bar Harbor. Pours cloudy golden with off-white head. Good lacing. Nose is citrus and some grain. Taste is nice and sweet with citrus. A little watery in the mouth feel.

My Bottom Line:
Citrus fruit galore dominate this IPA’s delicate caramel and honey before resinous moments surge to take control of the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam laces around the hazy amber-y golden.
-Carbonation is again quite lively here; some breathing makes the pint a smoother drink.
-The hop signature on this one is very engaging.
-Drinkability is enhanced by the overtly citrusy profile.

On tap at the brewpub.

Une pale ale avec une structure maltée massive et un profil houblonnée unique de sapin, mangue et verdure. D’une canette à l’autre, j’ai détecté du diacétyl en doses vraiment différentes mais je soupçonne un entreposage douteux, sans rancune.

asheft (3083) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
[can from Bier Cellar] Lime and pineapple aroma with sweet base malt, faint caramel and a bit of "young" sulfur. Hazy dark copper under a persistent, lacy, bubbly blanket. Potent lime and butterscotch (Ringwood?) flavour with a touch of sulfury popcorn and a slick caramel feel that is most likely diacetyl. The combination of fermentation-derived and hops flavours are unique and refreshingly novel. Medium body, medium to high carbonation, faintly lingering bitter finish.
