On tap @ RiRa, Portland ME.
A - Might be the prettiest beer I've ever seen. Brilliant goden orange. Fluffy, white head retained well. I'm reading that the canned product loses its head quickly, but the draft version kept half its head after 5 minutes.
S - Mild bready malt with big citrus hop aroma and some spice notes (fennel?)
T - Big but balanced. Sweetness on the tip of the tongue balanced by dry but not overpowering hops. Hops are piney, reminiscent of a west-coast IPA. Malts give way to a bittery finish. Delicious.
M - Very drinkable. Velvety feel with moderate carbonation. Could drink this all night but for the ABV.
O - Wish it was more widely available, it would be a go-to for me. Very well done.

This is the one out of the "backpack" that I was most eager to try, and I was NOT disappointed. A really good IPA definitely somewhere in the top 5 of IPA's i've tried. Smell is very hoppy/piney, with a little fruit thrown in. Taste is similar, hitting you with good fresh pine hops upfront, finishing with some grapefruit or orangey flavors. The mouthfeel is great, with moderate carbonation that fits the brew and ends dry. Overall a really good IPA and my favorite brew from Baxter so far.
