Appearance - Burnt orange. Very hazy. Medium white head and a nice chunky collar. Nice lacing.
Smell - Tropical fruits. Citrus hops. A little bit of toasty malt.
Taste - Mango with some citrus hops and sweet malts. A little bit of toasty malts. Minimal bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Medium to medium heavy. Verging on sluggish, but well carbonated.
Overall - One-dimensional, but that dimension is really nice. Tropical fruit everywhere in this beer.

Drinking in the second week of January, bottle with a date of the end of October. Might have hurt the hoppy characters a bit. Pours with a golden orange hue, and a half finger head that settles to a thin film, that leaves decent lacing as you drink. Smell contains floral and citrus hops, with a bit of the malt character coming through. Taste is a nice balance of bittering and aroma from the hops, with the Belgian yeast give some nice peppery notes. Not a hop bomb by any means, but I think it makes it abit more drinkable because of that. Great mouthfeel helping by the finer carbonation from the bottle carbing.
Overall a very good beer that's pretty drinkable. Might have been expecting something a little more interesting from a collab of MBC, allagash and in'finti. But definitely enjoyed it.

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a mug glass.
A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a very thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains floral hops, Belgian yeast, caramelized malts, some honey and some citrus.
T: The taste starts out with a strong hops bitterness for the style. Then some breadiness comes in from Belgian yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. There’s some citrus and caramel sweetness that provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good hoppy representation of style, this is a very solid beer to drink for a long time.

Took me a while to find this beer as I didn't realize the year was the name. This beer falls into a typical Maine beer, solid, with a gritty/earthy grapefruit-bitter dry finish.
The appearance is a little lighter and cloudier than expected, with very good head. The smell is bready with some peppery-spice notes and grapefruit notes to it. The taste starts more or less straight into a bitter backbone, with the taste following the nose almost to a T. The taste is crisp, but overall seems a static. The mix of flavors starts in front, and isn't really altered throughout the taste. The taste is good, but doesn't excite the palate as much as I'd like. "Solid" would be a good term for this beer.
