Got this in Bar Harbor, Maine at the grocery for ~$7 22 oz bomber. Poured into glass. Pours a clear, dark amber color with a tall light tan head that dissipates slowly leaving very little lace. Aroma is dark, dried fruit, blueberries, bread and lots of malt. Taste contains berries, caramel, slight citrus and a huge malt backbone balanced by a fair amount of bitterness. Mouth is good. Overall, a big double IPA with a huge malt base and a good amount of bitterness. Not what I was looking for but it was pretty good.

L: Brilliant ruby amber 1” frothy head, dissipates to thick film, and produces thick lace. S: Grassy, resiny, citrusy hops, malt, fruit. T: Very rich, caramelly malt, fruit flavors that balance the hop bitterness F: Medium to medium full body, medium carbonation, soft palate, clean and smooth. O: This is a damn fine DIPA

Surprised by the "low" ratings on this one. Glad I finally tried it. Pour is clear, golden-amber with thin, clingy top. Aroma is other-worldly, one of the most fantastic smells I've encountered - bready malt with wild berry and citrus. I spent most of my time with this thing with my nose in the glass! Flavor has malty start, a nice bitter bite in the middle, finishing pretty clean with a nice semi-sweet linger. Good stuff, this!
