Wow. This was basically like drinking the smoothest of smooth juices. Way juicier than I expected because it did not appear super hazy. IMO much much better than lunch, but not quite as good as Another One.

9/28/18 bottling. Month and a half old.

A: A slightly hazy golden pour. Big tall frothy off-white head. Head is enormous and sticks around nearly undisturbed for quite a length of time. It finally fades out, leaving solid sheets of lacing everywhere. Nice, really nice.

S: Oily pine immediately in the nose. Nice strong citrus backs it up nicely. A touch crackery.

T: More of the same. Citrusy and piney up front. Very light crackery malt, reminds me of saltines. Just a touch of graininess. Finish is oily and mouth-coating with more citrus. Aftertaste almost tastes like oak? Might be my imagination.

M: Lighter/medium bodied. Smooth with an oily finish.

O: Not a bad IPA, kind of a let-down after having other Maine brews if I'm honest. Doesn't mean it's bad, it's just that the bar has been set so high. Still enjoyable though.
