On tap at Flatbread in Portland, ME on 2/26
Pours an amber with no head to speak of. Smells of earthiness, dirt,toffee. Taste similar but with a name using hops in it I would have thought more IBU. overall a bit bland with the same earthy hops with the bready and caramel malt profile dominating. Smooth yet not quite what I had hoped for.

Straight from the can on the way to the grocery store. Hops abound and just enough malt to provide great balance. Super clean, however a tad bit too bittah' for my palate. Crazy good value though. 6 pack of cans for $10.99 clocking in around 7%? Hell yea. Drink all day long at those prices!

From a 12oz can

Pours a golden amber color with a decent sized foamy head, fades at a decent pace but leaves a lasting cap throughout the drink, minor lacing on the glass.

Smell has a rich caramel malt backing with a strong piney hop aroma at the front, hints of grapefruit.

Taste starts off with a hit of piney hops, quickly balanced with the caramel malt and finishes with a rather dry bitterness from the hops again, grapefruit aspects throughout, body is medium with a slight resiny mouthfeel, carbonation is medium but at times can be sharp.

12 oz. glass on draft at Flatbread in Portland, Maine. Served in a nifty snifter.

Look: Pours a slightly hazy orange/yellow with a thin white head that shows good retention.

Aroma: Smells of lemon, grapefruit, hops and grass.

Taste: Nice citrusy, lemony IPA. Good hop character and solid malt base. A wee touch of alcohol burn.

Mouthfeel: Slightly light of body, but that helps aid its approachability. Good beer to pair with yuppie pizza, as I did.

Overall: Really solid IPA, this. Not a game-changer, but doesn't seek to be or need to be. Would recommend to anyone who likes U.S. IPAs.

On tap at the Little Tap House in Portland.
Comes to the table a medium copper with a smallish white head that quickly dissipates to a cap with a moderate amount of lace on the sides of he glass. Smells of caramel, earthy hops, and a fair amount of mineral water. The flavor follows the aroma quite well and adds a hint of butterscotch. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet bitter mouthfeel. Decent beer but reminds me of almost every other ipa from Maine.

Thin beer, ok but there are better selections available.
