Pours very cloudy bright yellow color with yeast sediment floating in it and active carbonation racing up to a 2 finger foamy white head that was full of bubbles; the head faded very slowly, leaving really good foamy lacing and rings as it went down.
Smells of fresh grapefruit up front, with lemon zest, tangerine, citrus hops, pine, fresh fruit, biscuit, grass, floral notes; very airy and fresh smelling with delicious citrus notes similar to rubbing a citrus fruit peel on your nose: overall very pleasant to inhale.
Tastes like it smells but with a tad more malt backbone showing and some caramel. Flavors include grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, citrus hops, piney hops, orange peel, coriander, biscuit, grass, caramel, floral notes like dry hops and/or tea leaf, wheat crackers and mild spices. The malt balance is close to perfection and the bitterness is just relevant enough to mask the 7% ABV completely, making for an extremely fresh tasting and sessionable IPA.
Mouthfeel is medium with average carbonation and a little thickness to the brew, but the bitterness is low, the feel is slick and the drinkability is high. It went down as easy as a session IPA, but it’s a regular IPA.
I have thoroughly enjoyed every beer that I’ve tried from Maine Beer Co., so I recommend trying this as it was another tasty beer from a great brewery.
