UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 bottle poured a dark amber in color with good initial carbonation and a thick one finger head. smell is sweet hops, malt, a little must, and has some herbal notes. taste is light on the mouth feel, hops in the mid pallet are not as tasty as the smell led me to believe, decent malt level, and finishes dry on the bitter side.

On tap at The great Lost Bear. The color is amber with a white head and some lace. It has the aroma and taste of hops. It also has a bit of citrus taste to it just enough to give a nice pleasant bitter taste. A very good I.P.A.

ganache (6057) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Bottle from porterhouse - thanks, Kevin! Slightly tropical, resinous hop taste with just a touch of funk. A really fresh-smelling zinger! Lacing soapy, rocky off-white head rests on a deep cloudy copper-orange body. Taste is very bitter, slightly earthy but moreso clean, bitter and hoppy. Spritely, playful medium body seems fuller than it is. Very long-lasting, bone-dry, bitter aftertaste. Really some nice bud-work here.

Pours a hazed gold with a hint of amber. No head after a one finger white head quickly falls. Nose is mild. Hops are evident, but not overpowering, or even that strong really. Typical pine like hop side effect with a slight citric edge. Still mild overall though. Flavor is hoppy yes, but seems to be a mix also between smoky and metallic upon first impression. Kind of odd really. Feel is standard. Drinkable, sure. Just nothing unusual or out of the ordinary.

Quevillon (3174) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2007
Bu à Great Lost Bear à Portland, Maine, en fut (20 oz). Rousse orange, mince collet avec de la dentelle. Arome d’houblon de fruits du vergés un peu sucré, pas trop amère. Goût bien amère d’houblon faiblement sucré, un peu de pêches. Assez solide!
