4.58/5 rDev +4.6%
Bottle date of 3/26/13 which means that this beer is a hint over 1 month old. Poured this into a pint glass.
A: Pours a golden yellowish orange color. There is an enormous, sudsy head which leaves a generous amount of lacing for the glass to collect.
S: I smell some serious citrus and a little bit of pine going on here. The citrus consists of mainly orange and grapefruit. I could smell this when I poured it. Awesome!
T: This is such a tasty brew. Orange and grapefruit with some piney undertones. I can taste some malts as well. This is such a balanced tasting brew. This is not as bitter to me as others may suggest. It may be due to this being the 2nd IPA I've had tonight.
M: A medium mouthfeel with a moderate amount of carbonation. No alcohol being tasted at all.
Overall: This is one of the best IPAs you'll ever have. By no means is this something that will blow your face off. This is a nice warm weather brew that you just enjoy. I've had this in the bottle and in a pint glass and it was delicious either way. I'll pay the 7 bucks for this almost every time.

4.18/5 rDev -4.6%
A: Poured a hazed deep yellowish orange color with good carbonation and head retention leaving a small white cap, nice bubbles and moderate lacing
S: Not very empowering on the nose. I do get some light citrus notes on the nose.
T: A very subtle taste, not what I was expecting at all. I was expecting a big hop fwd IPA but this is a balanced treat. Initial taste leaves some citrus; light orange peel, some grass with a light caramel backbone. Smooth, not overly bitter, just well rounded. Finish has a light hop bite, almost no booze with a grassy citrus, floral finish
M: Medium bodied, balanced, well carbonated.
O: Well done! I would have this for breakfast, lunch, dinner and a midnight snack.

Big thanks to ActonBrewer for this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into CCB pint glass.
A: Very nice bright gold with a big fluffy white head and lots of visible carbonation. The first pour is very clear, with a bit of haze showing up as the bottle gets emptier.
S: Big citrus aromas, with pine and resin as well, and a bit of sweet malt.
T: Pine, resin, citrus hops, some tropical fruit and a bit spicy. Hop bitter in the hang that seems grassy. Nice hop bitter bite.
M: Thin body, good carbonation sensation, minimal alcohol presence.
O: Quite tasty, but falls short of the best in class. So far, I've had three brews from Maine Beer and been extremely impressed with all of them.

Thanks to Gehrig13 for the bottle!
Pours a murky light orange colour, with a soft white finger or so of head that dissipated somewhat quickly. The aroma was tropical, with some mango and citrus fruit, a touch of an almost orange juice aroma, slightly piny and resinous. Lots of tropical fruits on the taste, orange, pineapple, pine, a crisp and assertive, but not overpowering bitterness. Upper light bodied, crisp and refreshing, smooth and clean. Easy drinking.
Excellent IPA all around!

A - Pours a deep orange/amber color with puffy two finger white head.
S - Very citrusy nose, a bit of apple and honey. Very strong and aromatic. Great.
T - Mmm, on the taste, the citrus is balanced out with a solid piney hop presence that permeates throughout. Actually well balanced.
M - A bit dry, but full bodied and crisp.
Overall - An incredibly good IPA. Loved this one.
