look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a shaker pint glass. No obvious bottle dating,

An opaque copper orange body, with lots of cola rising slow moving carbonation. Head makes a finger off white and soapy. Settles nicely, scattered ring lacing a bit too.

Spicy malt action, mixing with a little bit of orange citrus hop action, even a little bit of mango and juice flesh tropical. Light and airy. Fairly standard but pretty solid.

Juice action continues on the palate. Real solid spicy rye backbone mixes with a tropical juicy hop presence. Good rolling juice mix, with light tropical fruit notes, some mango and even pineapple. Nice lingering spice and bitterness.

A real solid brew, and nicely balanced in its simplicity. Good solid RIPA, quite a surprise and neat find.

22oz bottle, no bottle date anywhere

Pours an amber color with a slight orange tint to it, good sized off-white head, fades at a slow rate, leaves some sticky patches of lacing on the glass.

Smell has a deep malt aroma, some subtle spiciness from the rye, hop presence is pretty decent with a citrusy aspect.

Taste starts out with the citrusy hops and gets mellowed by the caramel malt, some nice rye spiciness adds a nice depth, carbonation is spot on to lend a creamy body to the beer, finishes slightly dry yet also sweet.

Of all the Penobscot Bay beers, so far this is their best to date.
