Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

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.

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.
