Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is the one beer that our brewers and I would take to that mythical deserted island if we could only bring one Marshall Wharf beer. Huge malt backbone matched with huge amounts of hops.

Just cracked one that I brought back from a recent trip to Maine. This puppy is a toss up in my book. As described, super malty and maybe (?) overly boozy. Sweet on the front in with citrus and floral notes, and a heavy dose of some pine. Smell is beautiful. Sticks to your lips, that's for sure. Color is a deep burnt orange. Trekking around Portland, ME, this was a hard 4 pack to find. Not my favorite, but I know a lot of people who are going to dig this one. Side note, this beer is better (IMO) as it warms up. Low to mid 50s.

The beer is bright golden with a thick, light tan head. Aromas of pine, sap, alcohol, malt, a touch of spice. Big hoppy flavor amid a robust malt body. Sticky on the palate with warming alcohol heat. Truly, a malt and hops monster, as described. Not my stylistic preference. Ok...

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: 1 inch head, high carbonation, brownish-gold in color, clear

Smell: pithy citrus rind

Taste: very citrusy: peaches, tangerines, and other tropical fruit hops

Mouthfeel: medium body, sweet with a bitter end, high carbonation

Overall: An enjoyable, fruity IPA. Many layers of citrus flavors make this a pleasure to drink. If it were not for the high ABV, I could have several.
