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.

From the 1 pint can dated 12/22/14. Sampled on December 29, 2014 so it is pretty darn fresh.

Attractive appealing copper-amber pour with long lasting, foamy cream colored head. Lots of lacing.

The aroma is all at once resiny and floral with a sweet caramel malt note. No booze for a 7 day old 9.7% beer.

Medium to full, creamy body.

The taste is a fabulous malt-hopped balance with a hoppy bite finishing off the rear. Short-lived but delightful.

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.
