Our “East Coast” version of a West Coast-style IPA. Intense hop flavors and aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and pine dominate. A subtle malt sweetness brings the beer into balance.

4.51/5  rDev +3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Bottle poured into stone pint glass.

Had this many times, now its time for a review.

A: Hazy orange, almost straw-like. Decent head that fades into a nice lacing around the edges. The lacing from the initial pour are still at the top of the glass.

S: Big hops. Citrus and grapefruit aromas dominate the nose. Slight malts on the back end. Hard to tell with such a big hop profile.

T: Wow. Aggressive citrus, grapefruit and a perfect kick of pine attack the palate. Definitely some caramel malts at the end. Hop flavors linger long after the sip.

M: Bitter all the way through. Medium bodied. Easy drinkin'.

O: Very nice brew from Maine Brewing Co. Absolutely love this IPA and I would come back to this more often if the bottles were 22 oz. The price isn't so bad in New England but once you get to NY the price escalates like crazy. That being said, an absolute must try for hop heads.

4.7/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Poured from pint bottle into tulip glass.

Love Maine Beer Company's labeling.

A - Pours an amber-gold color. Frothy, creamy large white head with a lot of lacing. Head stays throughout.

S - Zesty, citrus smell with floral hops.

T - Perfect IPA taste, like the smell, very zesty up front, mellows toward the end with the bitter hops that we love from these types of beers.

M - Mildly carbonated, very fresh.

O - Amazing.
