4.31/5  rDev -1.6%

500ml bottle poured into tulip 13/6/14

A hazy orange amber with lots of tiny particles, slow tiny bubbles throughout feed a two finger foam that slowly falls to a thick film that leaves lots of random lace

S lots of tropical fruit on the nose, tangerine, grapefruit, over ripe pineapple, sweet orange, citrus all the way, very juicy, pine and vitamin C chewable's and just a hint of sweet malt but you gotta look for it

T lemon rind comes out of nowhere in a big way, more pine, less tropical fruit, just a little hard toffee, more rind, no real complaints but the nose easily takes it

M medium bodied, quite bitter, gritty, not quite foamy but airy, lots of rind lingering for ages

O I could've gone a little higher for smell or taste so a little higher here, very well rounded and has pretty much everything you look for in an IPA

Exactly a month old I'm feeling pretty lucky landing this in Alberta, I think this is my fifth beer from Maine and all have been great, I'm stoked to have 3 more to try

Pours dark amber..almost rusty orange.. Deep foamy white head with prominent lacing. Aroma is deeply citrusy and bitter..bright. Flavor is grapefruit, hops, bitter orange. Bold and intense..oily mouthfeel that's thick and chewy. Overall a full bodied IPA.
