From the 650 ml. bottle dated 10-03-13. Sampled on February 18, 2014. I might have liked it a bit fresher but 4 months is probably alright. Maine encourages us to drink this one fresh.

The pour a bottle fermented, slight hazy orange golden tone with a long lasting cream colored head that lingers and laces. It looks like the style recommends.

The aroma has a fine toasted biscuit malt and bitter hop sensation with and orange zing in there as well.

The body is light to medium.

This beer drinks very easily with its toasted biscuit character and floral, citrus hop finish. It is highly appealing now but I bet it would be nicer on a hot day.

It pours a light orange color with a white head. The aroma is intensely hoppy with spice, grass, florals and light tropical fruit. Maybe a hint of bread. The flavor is dry with a spicy hop kick. Lots of grassy florals and big citrus character. Crackery malts near the finish. This is a very enjoyable hop forward APA.
