look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Best by April 2014 notched on the label.

A: Pours a clear amber with a frorthy white head. Spots of lacing on the sides of the glass as the head dissipates. Some visible carbonation.

S: Not a very strong aroma, hops are a bit difficult to pull out. Fermented fruit.

T: A decent amount of hop bitterness in this one. Tempted to say there is more bitterness than flavor from the hops. Not sure how good that is. Malts add some carmel sweetness to it but are again overpowered by bitterness.

M: Medium body with somewhat low carbonation. A tad sticky from the combination of hops and malt sweetness. Dry finish.

Overall to the point IPA at a reasonable price. Won't blow you away with flavor but still has more than your standard beer.

I found this to be a very enjoyable brew with nice bitterness, but not overly alcoholic. It had adequate carbonation, a solid mouth-feel, and a good finish. I like an IPA that is strong on bitterness, but less than 7.0% alcohol, so I can enjoy more than one.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle marked best before nov. '13

look is a very clear ruby amber. smell is dry leaves, sweet honey and pine tree sap. taste follows: very dry and bitter, an off metallic taste, with sweet maple-y malts. feel is dry, dry, dry.

solid english-style IPA, especially at the cheap price point. the misleading label (the word english is nowhere to be seen) can be attributed to the low score here.

2.89/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Excellent layer of tan foam that dissipates quickly. Rather red for an IPA.

Smell: Sweet. Almost adjunct-like. It actually smells like caramel corn.

Taste/Mouthfeel: This is not an IPA. A lot like an amber ale...quite sweet. More caramel. There's a burned popcorn flavor in the finish that I don't like. Mouthfeel is actually ok. Good crispness, despite the cloying sweetness, but the burned flavor overwhelms.

Overall: A bad IPA but an ok amber.

1.49/5  rDev -46%
look: 2.75 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

a: Nice head quality to this, disappeared a little quick but a light head still remains throughout. A lighter copper color with a rosé hue to it.

s: This is an ineresting aroma. I am getting fruitiness. Apples and apricot and some light banana. Some light spice to it as well, cinnamon.

t: The bitterness is paired with a caramel malt while squeezuing in fruitness...I do not enjoy much as they are not complimentary of one another. I also get a strong sour taste which leaves me not wanting more.

m: A light mouthfeel quickly clears the mouth which is nice because I am sruggling here.

o: I have enjoied most beers I have tasted from Maine - was very excited to try this beer however I feel as though they were truly trying to put to much into the bottle and the end result is an over-flavored, awkward beer.
