Our 2nd place IPA. Only the Cant Dog is stonger, although arguments abound as to who is hoppier. A session IPA? NO! But you can try if you want. One of our personal favorites around the bar.

I had this at the Great Lost Bear in Portland, Maine last night. It was a dark amber color, slightly brown with a nice light tan-ish head and good lacing. The aroma hinted at some piney hops and fair malt, but it was not very strong as I was told it should be a pretty hoppy option. The flavor did bring a little more bitterness than the aroma suggested. Earthy hops and malt blend with a peppery harshness (nothing extreme). It was well carbonated an a fairly easy drinker with solid constitution but I don't recall any subtleties in the flavor beyond this, although i did pick up on an unusual sort of saltiness that actually wasn't too bad a quality in this case. I was a little disappointed that it wasn't a bit "bigger" but it followed a glass of red wine as well as one of Big Foot Barleywine, so maybe it needs another chance on it's own some time. Not bad at all really, definitely deserving a try.
