3.93/5 rDev -10.3%
A: Very light, bright straw. Strong carbonation flowing and thick foamy head that lingers a great while.
S: Real nice aroma. Tropical: Pineapple, tangerine, mango, and apricot. Then some nice resinous pine, and some bready notes.
T: Flavor is more faint then the aroma. Crisp breadiness with some sweet fruit.
M: Strong carbonation that gave it some dryness, also a little sweet. Light to medium body.
O: This is a nice IPA, haven't heard of this beer or brewing company. Glad to have gotten this and try it.

I had this on tap at Frontier in Brunswick. It was served in a really cool pint glass. The beer was a hazy gold color with a good-sized white head. There was a fair amount of sticky lace.
An herbal, piney aroma. A bit of sweet malt.
Taste closely resembled the aroma. Herbal and piney hops. A little bit of caramel.
Hoppy, rustic mouthfeel.

A: ghostly golden yellow, I swear I saw smoke inside my glass
S: powerful citrus, light pine
T: fine balance of delicious bitterness with clean finish
M: surprising robustness
O: My new favorite. Look out Pliney & Topper, Maine has answered! Delicious in a 16 oz. can OR on draft around town if you can find it. I recommend getting a 1/4 keg and enjoying at home.
I think the quality of the draft beer has improved since their unveiling in December, seemed to have tweaked the carbonation or something.
I would keep an eye on this brewery, I expect great things to come.

Poured a 6 day old can into a tulip glass. Amazed by the presentation. Massive white frothy head over a super light copper-ish colored ale, thick lacing all the way down. Smells of Pine, hints of citrus and melon. Tastes of delicious hoppy, dare I say, "Heady-like" goodness. Not super fruity nor spicy, kind-of a blend of the two. Super smooth, tiny-bubble kind of carbonation. Finishes easy and crisp. This is an amazing beer from a company that i'm so excited about. Hopefully they continue to push out beer as good as this. Cheers.
