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.

Bottle poured into snifter.

A- A nice yellow with a slight golden hazy hue. Short, white head about a quarter inch thick. Little lacing, carbonation present.

S- Very fruity and citrus forward ale. Smells of orange, grapefruit, coriander, and pear as well as a touch of pine. Smells like a fruitbowl.

T- Follows the nose. Lots of fruit, but it was surprisingly on the light side as far as flavor goes. Almost had a session-like loftiness to it. Not much malt present at all. This light and fresh flavor make it easily consumable and hide the 7% ABV well.

M- Light bodied for an IPA. Very fresh taste and noticeable carbonation.

O- Great beer by Maine. I'll grab it whenever I can. As mentioned, it was lacking a little bit of what the smell indicated. Maine's "Another One" is rated a little lower, but I think its the better IPA of the two. Its has a similar nose, but packs that homerun taste to follow it.
