a deep amber pour with 2 fingers (+) cream colored head, great retention, slow dissipation and a ton of sticky lacing left behind. you smell what comes off as simcoe hops as soon as you pry the cap off.. grassy notes, lots of bready sweet caramel aroma. the flavor is just fantastic.. a very bready, nutty, biscuity body with a hop profile worthy of being confused with pliny. makes sense, this was bottled 12 days ago - as fresh as i'll probably ever get it. medium in body with an overall creamy feel to it, medium amount of carbonation keeps this beer nice and fizzy on the palate.
honestly, this is probably my favorite of all the maine beers, i feel like every one i have is better than the last (except for lunch, i wasn't greatly impressed with it) but i sincerely do mean it every time. definitely pick this one up, and drink it fresh!

In a MBC pint glass this beer was a hazy rust color. There as a thick tan head, and a moderate amount of sticky lace.
Mostly a citrus aroma. Some grassy hops and caramel malt.
Grapefruit taste up front, followed by the grassy hops. Sweet caramel background.
A hop-forward beer, easy to drink.

4.2/5 rDev +3.7%
Dark honey colroed with a half inch head of oatmeal colored foam that lingers long, and leaves big webs and pinwheels of lace on the insides of the glass as it's drained.
Inviting aroma of toffee, cinnamon, brown sugar, and grapefruit.
Bright and pungent hoppy flavors upfront, full of pine and grapefruit, assertive bitterness. A subtle malt backbone rides beneath, but hops fully overpowers.
Full mouthfeel, puckers the cheeks, finishes with a carbonation tingle. Great beer.
