Purchased from the Food Co-Op in Hanover, NH. Housed in a 1 pint .9 oz. bottle with a 07/02/13 bottling date
A-Poured into a New Belgium globe glass. 2 finger-sized white head that went down to about a one finger height. Clear with a light copper, orange-yellow color
S- Strong hop aroma with heavy citrus notes. not getting much else other than a faint phenol smell
T- Citrus hops forward that troll into a balanced malt midsection. It finishes with citrussy,bitter hop resin. Quite tasty indeed
M- Has a light mouthfeel. The malt backbone can be felt and does a great job of balancing out the hops. A good beer for a hot day (or any day for that matter).
O- This is one of the better IPAs I have had. Perfectly balanced and the hops are very present. Wish I had purchased more... A great beer by Maine Beer Company

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #55 (August 2011):
Slow pour still produces a sizable head; dull amber glow sans sediment. Fresh clementines, nectarines, strawberry taffy, toasted bread, nutty yeast and fresh-cut grass in the nose. Rustic, smooth yet bitty mouthfeel—a beer of sub- stance. Tame bitterness, though the flavor flogs the taste buds for a while. Nice hop bite with citric and herbal flavors, and some spice in the middle as the dry maltiness tries to rise above. Apple and pear fruitiness, warming alcohol and graininess try to stave off the hop flavor, but it just keeps pushing along. Pretty amazing brew, bringing back some clout for the true East Coast IPAs.

Lot 051811 on the label.
A slightly hazy amber color with a voluminous white head, even with a careful pour. Lots of sticky lace.
Citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Good sweet malt background.
Tropical fruit taste, very sweet. Grapefruit leading to a little bit of piney hops that I hadn't detected in the aroma. Bread.
This was a very well-balanced IPA. Will pick up more of these.

Had at the Sebago end of an era special event. Shared it with my wife and bumped elbows with pretty much every major player in the Maine beer scene.
The color is golden straw slight cloudy with a generous head.
The aroma is is fruity hops very very fresh. Wonderful.
The taste well what can I say its probably the best IPA I've ever had. The taste is all hops but never overwhelming. The flavor starts sweet becomes a citrus hop flavor and ends with a slight bitter of hops flavor. Wonderful.
