Bottle served into a Guinness imperial pint.
Appearance- Cloudy amber with a big fluffy head.
Smell- Big piney/floral hop aroma with a nice maltiness in the background. It truly is fantastic.
Taste- Big fruity hops with perfect amount of malts to balance it out. A lot of clemintine and apricot flavors. Incredible. Slight booze at the back of the throat.
Mouthfeel- Light, which is weird. Light carbonation with a little viscosity.
Overall- This is the best I've had from Maine Beer yet. This is a near perfect IIPA.

Had on tap at Novare Res described as centennial, simcoe, cascade and falconers flight hops. Wonderful.
The beer is red/orange with a delicate white head.
The nose, wow tropical fruits furnishings of malt and a flowers. Wow big a juicy
The taste matches the nose big and juicy cherry orange flavor almost gives a tartness it fishes with a pleasant and lingering bitterness . The alcohol is only apparent at the very end.

Bottled 013113 Batch 01
A: Hazy light amber with a super fluffy, pillowy, bouncy head. One of the better heads I've seen in a while. Settles into lumps and craters of foam and sits there for a while jiggling. I hesitated to take a sip because it looks like a latte. Great lace and fantastic retention.
S: An equal dose of wet, juicy hops and sweet, sugary malt. Hops are very floral, fruity, and fresh. Great hop aromas from about a foot away. There's a bit of sweet, aromatic booze in their, too. Hops really do steal the show, though. Bright, citrusy, pungent. I get some NZ hops in there for sure. Extremely inviting.
T: Whoa. Smooth, sweet, hoppy, malty, fruity, floral, woody, toasty. Bright, slightly tart citrus qualities from the hops. So great when it's warmed up a bit. Just a tad chalky and cloying in the finish after several successive sips.
M: Seriously smooth...silky smooth. Huge flavors. Hops are on point. Malt balances it well. Carbonation is just right. Body is proper for the style. What more could you ask for in an ASA? Or any beer for that matter?
O: Hops are SUPER fresh! This is SUPER tasty! Drink this as soon as you find it!

Maine Beer Company has yet to disappoint me. Delicious American strong ale. My only issue is availability, although this is understandable and makes it a treat every time.
Bottle date is 12/20/13.
Poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Appearance is a deep amber, mahogany color with a cream white, thick head. Moderate lacing on the glass throughout the pint. Aromatics are piney, sweet, dank hops with a bready malt backbone. Taste is not crushingly bitter, doesn't drink to 9.1% at all. This is a very round beer. The bitterness lingers, making it full-bodied and approachable.
Another win from Maine Beer Company.
