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.

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.
