Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Neutral aroma, on tap at Great Lost Bear. Golden coloured body with a white head and very lacey. Above average mouthfeel and good malt backbone. Some hoppyness,a little fruit, but rather below what I would expect from an IPA these days, and certainly not a DIPA as marketed.

Digging through my notes, had this at the brewery during the Pemaquid Mussel Festival.

Pours a hazy reddish orange color with light head.

Nose light malty, citrus, bit of pine, light floral hops, bit of reddish malt.

Taste brings piney hops, apricot, tangerine, chewy and spicy hops, fairly bitter, some sweet malts that get a bit chewy. Finish has a long bitter earthy grassy hop finish.

Mouth is med to a bit fuller bodied, decent carb.

Overall nice IPA, pretty much defines an east coast style, and almost DIPA like but not quite.
