Maine Beer Company round 2, entering this with lofty expectations after MO. Poured into an American pint glass, this is a cloudy dark yellow brew just grading into orange territory, with a milkshake-like creamy white head that retains form admirably. Quite light in appearance and this carries over onto the palate, where the malts are concerned. But the hops? Bold and flavorful all the way, with a tropical gummy nose of mango and papaya, along with citrus peel and slight green pine notes. Very fresh and vibrant. Taste also skews towards the tropical, but there is an assertive grapefruit/tangerine/lemon rind presence and some gooseberry and longan as well, with a smooth bitterness that builds to rather high levels, some faint onion, pepper, and pine accumulating and coupling with the malts to yield a pleasant toasted effect. Moderate body and oily smooth mouthfeel. Juicy but bitter. Finishes smoothly bitter and clean, a bit tangy and citric with minimal heat. Zoe and Weez, you are next. Fantastic brewery and with any luck we'll get the other IPA offerings here in Alberta as well.

From the well-labelled bottle into the MBC ale glass.
A: Glowing yellow with slight haze. Nice carbonation and lacing. Head compacts from 1 finger to a solid semi-rocky 4mm disk. no legs.
S: Malt is lighter two row variety to my crude schnozola. Pine, grapefruit, heady with resin. Some of the finest tropical and malt blends I have ever smelled.
T: Follows the nose with great grapefruit and pine resin. Very nice sip and balanced, mellow.
M: Velvety and smooth, light carbo lends to lighter mouthfeel. Impeccably dry finish with light malted wafer balance with resiny breath.
O: Crazy good. Wish I had this more available. A must try.
