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.

4.03/5  rDev -8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

a hazy copper pour with 3 fingers of creamy white head which left behind great amounts of lacing. smells citrusy with lots of sweet caramel notes, grapefruitpine, slight mint/lemon hoppy character, a nice complex bready profile. getting a nice herbal hop notes up front in the taste, that minty quality is right there too. lots of bittering but subtle enough to enjoy. sweet malt profile accents the citrusy notes of the hops as well. really tasty, but i think the bitterness is a little bit overwhelming. modest amount of carbonation with a creamy mouthfeel (medium in body).

the aroma this beer gives off is excellent.. unfortunately it didn't taste as citrust as it smelled. the bittering hops used were a bit too herbal and not really what i was looking for. still a really nice ipa, but having waited over a year to try to land a bottle of this, i was slightly disappointed.

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.
