Pours amber with a white head. Smells perfumy with some floral hints and spice. Tastes spicy and peppery with some floral hints and a citrussy, bitter finish. williamherbert (1544) - Syracuse, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Massive head; cloudy orange. Tons of carbonation. Aroma is chlorine and flowery hops. Decent but underwhelming. A decent hop flavor with some weak pale malts. Kinda "eh." Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2009
In short: A fluffy IPA with a basic malt backbone and a good amount of fruity hops. A bit dirty but pleasantly tasty. Decent.Gmoney (442) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 7, 2009
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear golden blonde body topped by a medium white head
In long: Nose shows a lot of fruity hops (citrus, grapefruits, oranges, etc.). Far from a crisp brew, this one felt yeasty and fluffy. Cake-like maltiness, smooth honey and caramel. Really felt like a fluffy cake. Hops really take over the finish. Very fruity bitterness of medium intensity with also a dry dirtiness with tree bark hints. Not crisp or refreshing but overall rather tasty. Prides itself to be “one of the hoppiest beers in Maine at 55 IBU’s”. Yes, at 55 IBU. And I’m also on the best cook living in my house.

I seem to be a lot higher than most for this one. Pours a golden amber with a slight haze. Very nice velvet head that stays for the duration. Aroma is pine and citrus, not as pronounced as you might expect. Flavor has a bit of malt up front but is very hop bitter after. I think it is very well done.

[2360-20090731] Bottle. Mild chocolate malt aroma is mostly grassy yeast. Slightly hazy, light brown orange body with a quick foamy white head. Bread yeast grass flavour has a long flour finish. Medium body. Odd a little but otherwise fine.

(w/ others @ BCTC; Cooperstown, NY)
A: Pours with an average-sized, white head... this sucker sticks around at one finger-size for the entire duration! Excellent, clumpy white lacing... looks like a Belgian ale in this regard. Body is mostly clear, with a slight haze, and a nice, deep copper color.
S: Smells quite hoppy... think there may be some citrus in there as well.
T: Slightly watery at the beginning, but that quickly makes way for the hops. Quite a bitter finish, with a long-lasting flavor. I can feel the 55 IBUs coming through.
M: Medium-bodied, slightly creamy, average carbonation... quite nice.
D: Nice and hoppy, but not overpowering. The look of this beer is its best feature, but everything else is up to par as well. A nice entry from Sebago. j12601 (11573) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
BCTC. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin white head. Light citrus aromas. Body is mostly caramel and malt. Finishes with a light bitterness.

on tap at the barley pub. Orange pour with a slight offwhite head. malty without a strong hop presence in the nose. What is detectable is a little piney. Flavor is malty with some bitterness from the hops but not as much as id like. This makes for an unballanced and uninteresting brew PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Bottle at BCTC 2009: Hazy orange golden with an off white film of head. Astringent vegetal aroma- some sweet grains, almost donut like with a sweet pine note. Weird flavor as well with some citric orange covered by residual sugary character that is, again, donut like. Quite odd. Doesn’t have any bitterness. Weird.
