Appearance: Orange with too much head that lingers way too long.
Taste: Very weak. Watery with very little in the taste department to even speak (or write about).
Overall: If this is Maine's "best IPA" as the label claims, then is Maine's worst IPA stale urine?! Simply put, this beer reminds me of Killian's Red...in other words, bland, watery, and forgettable. If you truly want a great IPA, go for Ballast Point Sculpin. NEXT!!

This is ironically named. It should be called Maine's Worst IPA. This beer is a big mess of caramel and buttery Ringwood yeast. The bitterness is average, the hop aroma is non-existent and the hop flavor is hidden by the fracas between the butter and caramel flavors. This is just down right awful. If you're looking for a new IPA to try, this isn't it. It's obvious this beer was created completely out of marketing and it has failed miserably. Gritty's needs to wise up, build their own brewery and stop using Shipyard to contract all their 12oz beers.

this is pretty terrible stuff, which I tried hard to find reasons to like, but didn't come up with much. it pours copper colored and almost totally flat. its got a nose of watered down English malt and a lazy combination of haphazard hop varieties and additions. like the brewmaster through as much hops in as he could, without consideration of acid or oil properties, boil times, or anything else. its sloppy tasting too, watery and dull, not what an ipa should be. at first I thought this was a product of the English malts, not an American ipa maybe, but that's not the case, its just a mess all over the shop. no carbonation kills it for me, I would have liked to see a little less body too, but this was a touch pint to choke down, and one I would steer clear of. it filled me up before a nice meal too, ugh.
