This is outstanding! Very fresh tasting beer.
This poured a deep golden yellow with a slight haze and streaming but not excessive carb. Nice sheets of off white lacing all around and a firm cap of foam that hung in to near the bottom.
Aroma is sweet rich malt with honey notes along with floral and citrus hop in the background - not forward as in a left coast style - very nice!
Flavors is a good blend of firm but soft malt and mild citrusy hop. Bittering kicks in on the finish in a very British IPA way - solid and satisfying but not harsh biting.
Mouth feel is light for style but makes this very session able IPA. Closer to what called a Pale Ale these days ( this reminds me of Capt Lawrence Pale) but a near great beer in either category.

From the Sebago brewhouse in Portland ME.
A: deep, clear golden yellow with minimal lacing and 1 mm ring of head. No legs.
S: some lemongrass, citrus zest and light malt all blending well.
T: tropical citrus and lemongrass, with caramel lightly playing about.
M: light-medium, not filling at all. slightly creamy finish with slick finish, minor bitterness playing about.
O: If you can try it....well...try it. Pretty solid offering for a local chain brewery.

3.35/5 rDev -8.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
a. darker golden color, clear with 1 finger head. Head disappears quickly. Some lacing on glass.
s. Hops, spice (pepper?), Citrus, tropical (passion fruit).
t. Watery - some hops on the back, but light. Some spice but I cannot pick it out.
m. Carbonation seemed light.
o. Debated between 3.25 and 3.5. Refreshing enough for a hot summery day, but flavor is not the best. Will not be purchasing again.
