Found at the local provisions store in Kittery, ME, was unfamiliar with the beer and brewery.

Pours a cloudy bright orange color with a robust 3 finger off-white head.

Aroma has notes of pineapple mostly, so a bit sticky sweet on the nose

Funny enough the sweet pineapple and orange notes only come out in the finish. Up front it is fairly mellow with some muddled citrus notes and slightly tart. This takes a while to transition over to the sweeter notes at the end. I'm not a fan of this flavor profile but there is nothing offensive here.

The feel is somewhat soft and flat.

Overall I'm not too enthusiastic about this one but it is still an enjoyable beer. The double dry hop does not come across in the flavor profile for me.

Picked-up in a trade, thanks to rstump24 (Olympic Beer-Packing champion). Have heard of this brewery before, but never tried, as they do not distribute to MA. Embarrassed to admit, it took me a day to pick-up on the double entendre. Solid brew, nothing special. So many high-quality IPAs in NE, I have a high bar.

VERY hazy and thick when poured. There wasn't a head to speak of. The nose is like a freshly picked citrus fruit, with equal parts hops. The taste is the same, like a thick orange juice with hops. This is a super New England style IPA.

Fresh can poured into fluted snifter.

Looks nice. Hazy straw with thick foamy white head. Settles and rings my glass with a thin collar.

Citrus and mango come through on the aroma with a hint of herbal or vegetal kicking around in the background.

Flavor is a bit more subdued than expected. Some tropical fruit, hint of sweetness and citrus zest. Grapefruit pith bitterness.

Moderate carbonation and medium body.

Hints at being a big hoppy brew but lacks the punch in its flavor.
