A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high off white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge of the glass and lots of lacing down the sides.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of mango and pineapple are present in the nose along with notes of grapefruit and hints of pine resin.
T: The taste is nearly identical to the smell; the only difference is that he grapefruit flavors are a bit stronger. There is just about a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is an excellent representation of the style. Even though it uses the same hops as Weez, it's a lot better because the lighter malt profile really allows the different hop aromas and flavors to shine through.

500ml bottle. Given the child-related themes of the other Maine beers, I kind of thought that this one's name was right in line. I guess it's actually more beer-related than that - mea culpa.

This beer pours a rather cloudy, pale golden yellow hue, with three fat fingers of puffy, and mostly bubbly off-white head, which leaves some pervasive steampunk/chainlink lace around the glass as it slowly bleeds off.

It smells of sharp grapefruit, lemon, and underripe orange rind, a certain chalky flintiness, a touch of cat piss, dry pine needles, crackery (think bare saltines) pale malt, and further underdeveloped tropical fruit notes. The taste is still redolent of gritty grapefruit, orange, and lemon-lime pith, with a now stronger bready, somewhat yeasty, and still crackery pale malt backbone - i.e. not a competitor, more of a sanity check - a consistent stoniness, and leafy, piney, and kind of acrid floral hops.

The bubbles are pretty tight and edgy for the most part, the body just on the light side of medium weight, and hard to describe as smooth - the hops generally scratching out that particular aspiration. It finishes dry, dry, dry - that gritty stoniness re-appearing to bolster the still heady citrus, pine, and floral bittering hops.

Yes, this is unbalanced, yes, the malt is merely a blip on the hop bill's radar, and yes, I freaking love it! Somehow, this isn't all that much of a tongue-scraping instance of such hop-forward offerings - despite the bitter, fruity, and floral characters, there's a lulling, moderating attractiveness beyond it all. Note, I didn't say 'malt', mostly because I'm just not altogether certain that's what it is.

Bottle dated 03 24 14.

Slightly dull and hazy golden orange color, occasional visible carb trails, creamy head that lasts a good while, leaving behind sheets of lace in the glass.

Aroma is mainly floral with some trace citrusy grapefruit elements.

Taste has a nice hop punch, equally balanced with bready pale malt. Lingering grapefruit and a slight tropical mango note that gets lost underneath a firm grassy bitterness that lingers. Light to medium bodied, easy drinking. It's good, as all Maine beers are, but not the standout from the pack that Mo and Lunch are.

Bottle: Poured a pale yellow color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of floral grassy hops notes with light citrusy notes is quite pleasant. Taste is a great mix of citrusy hops notes with some grassy/green notes with light residuals sugar notes and minimal bitterness. Body is about average with good carbonation. Another super IPA from a great brewery.

Bottled 09/03/13. (same as Weez)

Despite a gentle pour it yields a huge fluffy 2 finger head that's almost as large add the pour of beer, fades slowly with lots of nice lacing, a bit hazy golden yellow color with nice bubbles streaming up.

Nose nice fresh hops, quite floral with hints of grassy, then musty hop resin, fresh tropical fruit, nice citrus, little tangerine and grapefruit pith, mild peach like stone fruit too, and even a hint of melon, light orange rind, faint hint of grainy malt and wheat.

Taste is nice too, lots of fresh hops again, little floral, nice resin, light musty, lots of tropical fruit with mild passion fruit and grapefruit pith, mild citrus little tangerine and rind bitterness, nice fruity juicy flavor like some fruit, it has an Amarillo hop character I think. Under that is a mild wheat character, little toasty and grainy malt, hint banana, but more like a kicked up gumball head. The hops turn spicy and quite bitter as it moves towards the dry finish, quite bitter grapefruit pith lingering, bit more wheat, juicy fruit hops too.

Mouth us med bod, nice fluffy carb.

Overall quite interesting, but quite as good as lunch but a different beast that is quite nice, great hops, light wheat base to juxtapose it, juicy abd drinkable with a great bitterness.

Bottled 06/11/2013

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium to dark golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some pale orange + apricot highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy off-white head that very slowly reduces to a medium sized finger tall cap towards the center of the beer with a thick film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of tropical fruit hops (I detect some mango and pineapple along with hint of peach) along with moderate aromas of citrus/tangerine/orange hops and just a hint of pine hops.

T: Compared with the smell, the overall flavor of this beer is less intense. Upfront there are some light flavors of biscuit malts with very light amounts of sweetness which is followed by some slightly heavier than moderate flavors of hops - tropical/pineapple/mango/peach and citrus/tangerine. Light hints of a spicy yeast and a light amount of lingering bitterness in the finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Faint hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Even though this beer has a modest ABV (7.0 %), it drinks like a session IPA in that it is really easy to drink. Very enjoyable with wonderful hop aromas and pleasant albeit a little light flavors. Pretty well balanced between the malt sweetness and hop bitterness.

On-tap 8/1/2014 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains a nice blend of citrus, floral hops and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a fruity citrus and caramel sweetness. Then a strong hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is on the thin side for the style but it works quite well for this beer and provides a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a very good IPA to pound down for a long time.
