look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A - Beautiful golden orange pour, slightly hazy with adequate carbonation. Poured an enormous head in a tall ale glass (4+ fingers!), which was pure white and left lovely, thick lacing on the glass for the entirety of my experience. Very impressive.

S - Smells like a pure hop bomb: bright, hoppy, grapefruit, lemongrass. It smells like the flavor "tart" come to life in my nostrils. Strong but clean. A little bit of toast. The scent retained its strength down to the bottom of the glass.

T - Very nice clean taste, strong of grapefruit/orange peel, and a hint of lemon. Pleasant caramel malt balance, and a slight citrus, apricot, and mango sweetness. Very, very well balanced.

M - Fresh and crisp, very easy to drink. Instead of an oily sheen, it more feels like you've left some grapefruit pulp in your mouth; the aftertaste is very pleasant. One of the better mouthfeels I've had in an IPA.

O - This drinks thinner than a DIPA (not as syrupy), but with almost as much flavor. Definitely one of the cleanest, most enjoyable IPAs I've had.

Bottled in late May.

Review adapted from notes taken 6/22/11

Appearance: Massive head (thanks to the bottle conditioning), fades and leaves great lacing - it's a hazy amber/copper/dark orange color - definitely a pretty beer

Smell: Nicely hoppy with some citrus, some pine, floral with a touch of grapefruit rind - definitely an IPA, but not a super-aggressive one - some nice malts in the background, toasty, biscuity

Taste: Simply great - some fresh grapefruit, orange, pine - nicely balanced with the malts, which are genuinely impressive - toasted, kind of like sweet biscuits, yet still pale - complex - nicely bitter - as the smell would suggest, this is not extreme, and it really works well - overall, this just tastes very clean and crisp

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, very smooth and nicely carbonated - again, nicely crisp

Overall: Perhaps one of the best IPAs the East Coast has to offer

This beer is a treat. It's so clean and well-balanced. My only complaint is the bottle format. With a beer that is this easy to drink, I want to be able to buy a case of tallboys, not pay $6 for a 500mL bottle. Bottle conditioning works in cans, right?

Straight pour from 1 pint 9oz / 16.9oz / 500ml pry-off bottle to a tall Ommegang flute. Bottling date of September 9, 2012 printed in black ink on the side of the front label (“090912 10”) and a note to drink within 90 days of the bottling date. That makes three and a half weeks after bottling (24 days), so I am heeding your advice, Mssrs Maine Beer Co.

Appearance (5.0): This immediately yields a solid four fingers of cream-colored head, very tight and foamy, sitting on top an orange-amber, perfectly cloudy body. The head leaves gobs and webs of lace all around the glass as it recedes, leaving a rocky cap in the middle. This is exactly my vision of the perfect American IPA, in terms of appearance.

Smell (4.5): Sweet citrus and some moderate resiny dankness predominate in the nose, immediately calling to mind passionfruit juice and fresh-cut pineapple. There’s a nice mix of mild caramel and bready tones that fill out the malt character here, too. That mix of citrus and slight catty / dank is just so good.

Taste (4.25): The hops are not as aggressive as I was expecting, which isn’t a bad thing. They come in as a mix of moderately sweet-citrusy and moderately bitter zest / pith. Lunch has a long, moderately bitter finish, which is pithy and herbal but bordering on vegetal, slightly oniony but not in a bad way. The malt body is relaxed but not totally out of the picture, adding a sturdy wheat bread kind of character and a bit of caramel—but the hops really do dominate. No alcohol or yeast notes to be found.

Mouthfeel (4.0): Subdued carbonation, tingles slightly but is never prickly or coarse. The body is about exactly medium-bodied, not too slick or oily but with a pretty dry finish. This is good, not excellent in terms feel, but it certainly does the job.

Overall (4.5): This is an excellent IPA. I know it’s not weighted heavily here, but I’m a sucker for a really good-looking IPA, and this looks fantastic. It smells fantastic, too, and the taste is great—not perfection but I really can’t knock it much. Every IPA is different and this one does what it does very well: not blindingly bitter, but with a great flavor and a fantastically dry-hopped aroma, with a nice body and excellent look thanks to some good bottle conditioning. This is a great beer. Too expensive and hard to find to make it a regular, but a nice treat when it’s fresh.

First had: bottle from TJ's, Paoli, PA

Poured into a pint glass, a slightly hazy honey color with a huge puffy white head, three fingers tall at least, displaying excellent retention and leaving a crusty full coat of lacing on the glass. Amazingly attractive beer. Floral aroma, thick with citrus and tropical fruits. Lots of fruity hops in the taste, orange, grapefruit, pineapple, mostly, pithy; a very nice sweet, bready malt base that comes out more when the beer comes closer to room temperature. Smooth and clean on the palate, medium body, and extremely drinkable. Exemplary.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Look: Deep golden color; cloudy but translucent. Pours a huge 3 finger light tan head that dies down slowly leaving a thick uneven layer of foam on the surface of the beer and lots of sticky lacing on the glass. PERFECT!

Smell: Nice hoppy aroma with hints of citrus. Made me want to drink the beer!

Taste: Starts off with an acidic citrus flavor flavor on the front of your tongue progressing to a tart lemon flavor on the sides of the tonque and ends with a mild, refreshing hoppy flavor. Very hoppy without being too hoppy; (but right on the edge). Very nice.

Feel: Medium body with a rich velvety mouth feel. Start off wet and refreshing; ends with a somewhat dry finish.

Overall: Very fresh and of high quality. Very good flavor. I would be happy to drink this again, though would not want this all the time due to the dry finish. While delicious, the beer left me feeling somewhat parched and looking for a drink of water.

16.9oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled on date is 12/30/14.

A- A cloudy orange color with a large amount of off-white foamy head which slowly fades.

S- Tons of citrus and grapefruit on the nose. Some hints of pine as well but the citrus dominates.

T- Pine and citrus just like in the nose. The only difference is I feel the piney resin flavors dominate the taste over the citrus.

M- Light and well carbonated, well balanced, hoppy, refreshing.

This is a very easy drinking and well crafted IPA.

Bottle dated 10/13/15 picked up at brewery. Pours clear and dark straw in color. Aroma is rich, with citrus and resiny hop notes up front, and a light malt background with a touch of biscuit.

Taste is crisp and bitter. Strong grapefruit tartness and a touch of tropical fruit. Light malt sweetness balances the hop bite. Light carbonation and smooth mouthfeel.

Very enjoyable IPA.

A tasty ipa that manages to quell the bitter hopiness, leans more to the fruity side; for someone who isnt the biggest ipa fan; this is probably the best ive tried.....even better than heady.

bottle poured into tulip - 1/24/12 freshness date

Pours a very hazy golden orange color with some darker tones. A thick, frothy head rests on top of the brew, retaining very well with nice legs. Spotty webs of lacing coat the glass while drinking.

Pretty inviting aroma with an enormous amount of citrus character. Grapefruit is right up front with some orange and pineapple notes. Hints of bread and caramel with very little warmth.

Bold and bitter up front with powerful juicy hop flavor. Grapefruit really sings on this one with juice and peel tones - pithy and pulpy accompanied by some orange tones. Touches of pineapple and more tropical tones add in some sweetness. Milder malt backbone adds in some biscuit and caramel touches. Not overly sweet at all, but the beer still manages to temper the hoppy citrus. Finishes bitter and very juicy.

Medium body, decent carbonation, explosive juiciness and sticky feel. In an avalanche of IPAs, this is one to remember - I'd definitely like more of this. I'm also a fan of the packaging, even though the pricing isn't the best.

12 oz. dark brown bottle. Bottled date 10-25-11
Served in a SA perfect pint glass
It pours a hazy goldish copper color with a full 2" beige head on top along with loads of sticky and patchy lacing.
A smell of pink grapefruit rises at once, followed by smells of bready malt, lemon zest, mixed fruit and whiff of gin in the vapors.
The flavors are juicy and citrusy up front. Slightly sweetened grapefruit, zesty limes, resinous hops roll around in a pool of creamy caramel malt. Minor tastes of pine, pepper and herbal mint peek in the finish. A little alcoholic fuminess is felt more than tasted. You're aware of its presence, but not confronted by it.
This is, at the moment my very favorite IPA! Incredible IPA!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a dark, hazy orange and red. A very fluffy, fine, 2 finger thick head that fills the tulip. Hazy.

Smell: A nice hop profile. Not overly bitter or citrus, seems pretty well balanced and in line for an IPA.

Taste: Interesting. A unique IPA in that there actually isn't an overly absurd amount of hop profile here. It's really nicely done, but almost understated. A good balanced profile allows for a good amount of malt to come through which plays surprisingly well with the citrus notes. Semi sweet with some interesting fruit notes here. Some grapefruit, but i'm getting some light white wine and even some lime notes out of it.

Mouthfeel: Nice, and solid. Good amount of carbonation. Plays well across the palate.

Overall: Wow. I'm really impressed but for reasons I really wasn't expecting. This beer is one of those beers you have every once in a while that makes you really rethink what you've been drinking. Most of the IPA's and DIPA's are all about cramming as many hops into the bottle as possible. This one takes a different approach and makes a beer that the hops taste great in. It's incredibly drinkable and one of the best IPA's i've had.

Serving: Bottle poured into Tripel Karmeliet oversized tulip

Bottle dated 7/21/11 decanted into SA glass. Layer of yeast at bottom of 1 pint .9 FL oz. bottle.
Huge, fluffy white head settles a top pale-golden elixir with few stray yeast particles adhering to the glass sides. Thick Belgian lace coats the glass as the tasting progresses.
Earthy pine scent with lime and grapefruit/citrus accents.
Wonderfully smooth, floral, bitter hop taste with a hint of sweetness, but mostly an even hoppy bitterness that does not explode your taste buds but washes over leaving a pleasant mix of citrus flavors: tangerine, lemon/lime and grapefruit.
Not an oily, slick mouthfeel, but a well carbonated fullness that accentuates the abundant hops.
Wow! Wonderful brew.

Received as an extra from HopSynonymous - Bottled 5/20/14 - Poured into a Stone IPA glass

A - Pours a light, transparent, golden color leaving a 2-3 inch fluffy head. Once it recedes, it leaves a little bit of the lacing on the sides of the glass and about a 1/4" head across the top. Very good looking!

S - Immediate rush of citrus and hops! Taking my time and concentrating on the nose, I get tangerines, peaches, mangos, and a touch of pineapple juice. The hop play key part, but take the back seat to the citrus. There is a faint hint of caramel from the malt. Delicate to sum it up.

T - A bright hop presence with a resin and pinelike background. Grapefruit rind and lemon zest/ lemongrass are the dominant features of the taste. Once it warms, the caramel malt taste makes it entrance.

M - Slightly dry with a medium body and a comfortable amount of carbonation. Not overly bitter.

O - There is a reason the people seek this beer out. While I like "Another One" a little better, I would drink this everyday if able to buy it regularly. Just a beautiful example of what an American IPA is and has become.

Pours a deep amber with a small white head. Nose pounds you with fresh cut grass, citrus and tropical fruit.

Taste is nice and fruity, a bit bitter, but well balanced, a bit chewy and very tasty, Mouthfeel is creamy and thick with a nice sharp finish. Super tasty & very drinkable. Another hit from Maine Beer Co.

Lot 072111 (Hooray!)

Pours a luscious foamy off white head with a murky caramel colored body that looks pretty tasty. But still thinking hmm this is an ipa? I can dig it.

Wow the aroma is excellent and big. Huge citrus grapefruit pine some floral hoppy character, yet at the same time has this sweetness to it. I could smell this all day. Hops hops hops. Pineapple, mango, tropical too. nice nice

A hop spice leads the charge into a hoppy grapefruit citrus into a caramel sweet malt suddenly overtaken again by hops, then into the bitter close, which gets a citrus like sweetness with a bit o piney that lingers with the bitter. Some floral hops emerge here too. This is hugely hoppy but still has a balance to it.

Smooth carbonation, easy drinkin. Light medium body.

Aromas excellent, taste very very good. Overall, extremely tasty ipa.

Thanks to Gehrig13 for the bottle!

Pours a murky light orange colour, with a soft white finger or so of head that dissipated somewhat quickly. The aroma was tropical, with some mango and citrus fruit, a touch of an almost orange juice aroma, slightly piny and resinous. Lots of tropical fruits on the taste, orange, pineapple, pine, a crisp and assertive, but not overpowering bitterness. Upper light bodied, crisp and refreshing, smooth and clean. Easy drinking.

Excellent IPA all around!

16.9-ounce bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance: Great-looking beer. Dense, glowing orange color with a huge white head that sticks around forever. Lots of lacing.

Aroma: Lots of fruit flavors coming through on the nose, with an underlining pine accent. There's grapefruit, pineapple, apricot, lemon, and some pear. Also a nice toasty aroma in the background.

Taste: The taste follows the nose, with the fruity accents - grapefruit and pineapple seem to lead the way - the most present. Tasty IPA.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied. Slightly thick for an IPA.

Overall: I'd describe this beer as up to the hype. It's kind of a blow-the-budget treat, but it's worth it. One of the best IPAs from the East Coast, I'd say.

Appearance: It has a beautiful light golden/orange color to it. It has a nice white head that dies down moderately and leaves nice lacing.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some dank pine resins, some grassiness, citrus and floral undertones and sweet bready malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a low-med carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. Another great beer from Maine Beer Company!

500 mL bottle poured into a large tulip. Bottled 5/18/11. Purchased at Carl's in Kittery, Maine for $6.

I must admit that I was very excited to try this, if only to finally have a well-made IPA right after it's bottled - super-fresh for my bad self. (This is a benefit west coast BAs should not take for granted.)

Pours an orange/gold color, solid two fingers of head, some lacing. Big nose on this and it smells amazing: citrus, pine, some grass, some mild caramel maltiness.

Taste is fresh with a bitter bite up front and malt smoothness as it follows through. Very well balanced flavors. Again there is grapefruit, mild lemon, grass, pine, and subtle caramel. Was this as impressive as the fresh Pliny the Elder I had two weeks ago? No, but it was pretty firkin close. Mmmm... firkin.

Had this with lunch (how apropos) in the house my wife and I closed on today. An excellent fresh beer as the first bottle enjoyed in the new home. Well done Maine Beer Co., especially with the snap distribution.

500ml bottle with a plain Jane egg shell white label. Everything on the label is in small print. Break out the magnifying glass. The back of the label only contains the mandatory US info and a description about the brewery. Off to the left side of the bottle is an inked bottled date. My bottle was bottled on 03/26/13. MBC would like it if you drink their beer within 90 days of the bottles date. My bottle was close to being 2 months old when I cracked it open. Still good!

When poured into a Peg's Cantina Snifter, this lunch was an easy on the eyes hazy golden apricot orange with a faint streak of lemon yellow toward the bottom of the glass. The head of foam was equally impressive as the sweet ass color. On top was of this golden brew was a 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch cotton white head if foam. This head of foam didn't have to be somewhere else so a small skim of foam and a moderate sized string of rings stuck around until the last drop of beer was gone. Beautiful appearance!

The first whiff of beer was a subtle mix of tart citrus fruits and pine. It was pretty good, but I thought it could have done better. When I swirled the beer around a tad, that awoke the beast from its slumber. Out comes the strong aroma of tart citrus fruits. Leading the citrus pack was the grapefruit. Following the grapefruit was the lemon, apricot, pineapple, and oranges. When the citrus fruits settled down, it then let the pine to come in and play. This beer still wasn't done. After the pine, the beer then finished up with a subtle whiff of caramel, a pinch of grass, and a few floral notes. My eyes and nose couldn't get enough of this beer.

My first two senses couldn't get enough of this beer. Let's see if my tastebuds couldn't get their fill of this beer. I could tell this beer didn't want to mess around. Right off the bat was the bitter citrus hops. These hops lingered on for a few seconds before it let in the tart citrus fruits. There was more of a fruit variety in the aroma. The taste still had its fair share of grapefruit, lemon, and orange. Following the fruits was a layer of pine. Once I got passed all of the citrus elements and pine, I found a tiny taste of toasted caramel malt. I would have though the citrus hops & fruits would have completely covered that up. After that the beer finished up with some floral notes. A very good taste, but my nose and eyes enjoyed this beer more than my tastebuds.

This was a medium bodied West Coast Style IPA that wasn't lacking in either carbonation or aftertaste. The aftertaste was full flavored and bitter with citrus hops, a select citrus fruits, pine, and floral notes. Like the head of foam, the aftertaste had nowhere to be so it stuck around. It will take about two glasses of water to rid your mouth of this nice bitter aftertaste.

Wow! What a beer. I've had 2 MBC beers so far and every one of them has been really good. They must be doing something right up there in Maine. Would I drink this again? I certainly would like another one! I would like to thank my good BA friend RCM505 for hooking me up with this winner.

Thanks Eric for hooking me up with a bottle of this. Poured from a 500ml bottle into my Southern Tier tulip. It poured a somewhat hazy, dull, amber orange color with a modest white head covering the top.

The aroma has a bright, juicy hoppiness to it with peach, mango and orange flavors all coming out. The fresh citrus fruit flavors are really awesome in it. A touch of pale, sweeter malts is noticeable as well. Really good aroma to it.

The taste follows through with more of the really good citrus hoppiness. I get a little more of a bitter grapefruit and citrus rind presence to it, especially in the finish. The juicy and bright notes peach, pineapple and mango show up as well.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation being moderate. Overall, it was a great beer. The hoppiness was very fruity and bright in the aroma and had even more of a range to the flavors in the taste. Very easy drinking and great tasting beer overall.

Lunch, well its after lunch but thats ok. Murky amber orange, not quite opaque but not transparent. A rather hard pour produces some head. Not the very prettiest beer but what a smell. Huge citrus and pine, so fresh. Can't get over how fresh, piney and citrusy this smells. Big hop flavor up front, resinous, pithy pine, some grapefruit like citrus. Bitter mid-palate through the finish. Obviously malt plays second fiddel here, but its just enough to balance the extreme hops. Kinda dryish finish, not cloying from over hoppiness. Just a hugely successful beer by Maine Brewing.
