4.35/5 rDev +25.7%
Large, slowly dissipating head. Leaves a dome as it recedes. Some spotty lace with chunks. The liquid is dirty gold and cloudy.
Pleasant floral aroma of fresh hops. Attractive and balanced for the style.
This is a solid IPA. Nothing extreme, but completely fits the profile. Starts with a pale malt flavor, but the spice of the hop comes in quickly and strongly. The aftertaste is peppery and long lasting. The body is moderate with a slightly elevated carbonation. I'd love to see this in a flight. I think it would score more highly in a blind tasting.

Another Manly Men beer, found on tap at The Lion's Pride.
In a pint glass the beer was copper colored with a huge white head. There was a good deal of lace.
Outdoors, herbal aroma. Some citrus. A good amount of sweet malt.
Resinous pine taste. A little bit of grapefruit. Biscuity.
Hoppy and smooth. Nicely balanced.
I enjoyed this the most of any of the other Manly Men beers.

A) Pours with a finger thick head and settles to a thin lacing at the edge of the glass. Clear golden-orange body. Sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Pungent. Spruce. Some floral and citrus notes.
T) Bright, hoppy bite upfront that lingers all the way through and into the aftertaste. The malts poke through attempting to balance the profile but the hops still dominate. Orange. Grapefruit. Some rind notes.
M) Medium body. Dry. Tannic.
O) A well crafted IPA. I'd have another one.

Poured on-tap into a pint glass, the beer is a hazy copper-gold coloring with a huge, foamy, light, off-white head that settles in around an inch and a half. The beer's aromas are a great dose of fresh, resinous hops all over the nose. Flavors are again hopcentric, with a fresh-hopped feel to it. Slight highlights of semisweet malt and citrus blend to help balance the palate. The beer is mid-bodied, yet cloying and slightly sticky in mouth, with a bitter and spiced hops aftertaste. The beer finishes smooth. Very green, with an overall fresh-hopped feel. Pretty damn good!

bottle into chalice
A - pours 1" head, slowly dissipates, moderate lacing. cloudy amber/brown color
S - bread, hops, citrus
T - bready, hop bitterness, a little lemon/orange citrus, great amount of malt flavor just enough but not too much to overshadow other flavors
M - medium to full bodied
O - really like this beer. nothing that really stands out, but a solid all around IPA that is very drinkable

Planning a honeymoon up coastal Maine, figured I'd brush up on my ME locals.
Gold with a swarthy white head. Stubborn retention thins and disperses a bit but sticks around for the whole glass and leaves a few dribbles of lace stuck to my glass.
Smells like Columbus. Catty, pine sap, spicy, wonderful Columbus. Neat that one hop can create complexity.
Bready malt and spicy, pine sap and grapefruit pith bitter hops. Tongue sticking hop residue. Packaging claims "we wanted to return to the IPA that was well hopped, but still balanced and smooth." It could pass for a hoppy pale ale but it's hoppy enough that I'm not disappointed.
One malt and one hop. Columbus and something bready I'd guess - English 2 row? Sometimes simpler is better.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a pretty solid orange color. I got a huge blast of foam out of this one - I think the bottle may have been shaken. Some pretty good lacing on the way down.
Aroma: Smells of apricot, citrus, pine, hops, and lemon.
Taste: Taste follows the nose. There's also a touch of booze. Slightly more harsh than I had guessed.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.
Overall: Pretty decent IPA with a traditional American IPA profile. I like that it's made with only one hop variety and one malt - it's very complex for having such a simple base. Not my favorite Atlantic beer - they make some really good ones, to be sure - but a solid IPA.
