From a 6 pack picked up at a Circle K in Bedford NH. Decent price of $8.99. Didn't poor in a glass so no call on the look as I drank it from the bottle. Mine had a B.O. of 10.11.2016, which is "bottled on" not "bummer over" date, but why not just drink it as soon as you can anyway?

My kind of IPA. More like the West Coast style such as Stone and Lagunitas, but made in ME. Good bitter finish, nice citrus hints, good feel leaving you wanting more. I am sure I this will dehydrate me like Stone does, which is good for my BP and another good reason to open one more....

I bought a 12 pack of this in 12oz bottles. I poured it into a pint shaped glass. The bottle read B.O.07.06.2016. If you look at the date, I'm reviewing this beer past the expiration.

Appearance: amber colored and lively. The beer was cloudy and had a brown tint.

Smell: sweet, herbal like smell. Very per-fumy and you can tell right away when you pour it into the glass.

Taste: well balanced but a strong IPA aftertaste.

Mouth-feel: well carbonated and crisp

Overall: I enjoyed the beer but would not drink this regularly. It was too fruity for me in terms of an IPA. Still, worth trying and buying every now and then.
