A - Cloudy orange and amber with a nice fairly creamy head, awesome lacing, gorgeous beer.

S - Smells of citrusey grapefruit and hops, smells great.

T - Very tasty, citrus grapefruit and a bitter hop bite. A taste of bitter hops and some citrus stick in your mouth. A small malt backbone is there to provide a touch of balance but this beer is about the hops and they are fantastic.

M - medium bodied, coats your mouth with delicious hoppy goodness, medium carbonation.

O - Great beer, exactly what I want out of this type of beer. If I ever see this on tap I get it.

Medium amber (12) draft pour from 32oz growler with off whit head. Lite hop presence in the now and on the tongue. So easy to drink. An excellent IPA.

Counter pressure filled bottle from the brewery.

Glassware - Allagash Tulip

Appearance - Dark copper in color with initially a two-finger white head that falls down to a thin cap covering the entire beer. Nice lacing on the glass. A little dark for an IPA, closer to an amber/red ale in appearance. Still a fine looking beer.

Nose - Big fruity hop aroma in the nose. Lots of mango, pineapple and citrus (orange and tangerine). Smells a LOT like Hopslam.

Taste - Lots of hop flavor with light bitterness on the swallow. The flavor again is primarily fruity with a nice pine bittering note. Not a lot of malt character but very complex hop flavors.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate-light carbonation. Nice resinous finish I expect from an IPA.

Overall - Very good, dangerously drinkable IPA. If it were a little lighter in color it would be near perfect. Great beer.
