Don't pour this beer. Drink it right from the can. It is the finest Maine has to offer in an IPA. Enjoy.

A - nice beautiful orange amber cloudy color with a white head that sticks and leaves a nice lacing
S - huge peach, nectarine, orange, citrus pith, juicy fruit gum
T - again huge peach, nectarine, orange, citrus pith, hop resin , juicy fruit gum, bitter bite, slight gummy bears taste similar to FFF alpha king
