16oz can from Brewery: This one pours a hazy, lighter amber/golden color. There was a small white head. A touch lighter nose, but good. Citrus, pine, maybe some melon and berries. The taste is good. A fair amount of bitterness. Melon, citrus and pine hop flavors are predominate. Love the reference to Frank Zappa in the name.

SOME APOSTROPHE IPA 4/27/17

Beer seven of nine (LOL Voyager fans) in my new series on Maine brews. There were supposed to be ten but #7 turned out to be a Mass. brew (Night Shift Santilli). This one is from York.

No canning date is visible. This absence seems to be becoming more common, but for reviewers and those who prefer their IPAs fresh it is important for this style especially.

Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Tree House stemmed tulip pint.

a: Nearly clear amber with a finger plus slightly off white head which receded to slight surface foam and a little spotty lacing.

s: Mild citrus.

t: Stronger citrus over a medium bready malt base along with a moderate hop bite. Becomes more piney as it warms, as do most.

m; Medium, good body and carbonation tingle. Oily texture.

o: An exceptional IPA, tasty and filling. Yet at 6% ABV quite sessionable.

Pours a medium gold. Not too much of a head and no lacing. Aroma tends to fade in and out with citrus and malts. Taste is citrusy. Average carbonation. An above average IPA.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass. Canned on date was unreadable.

It has a satisfying, honey orange color that is clear and bubbly. Head is finger high with a tannish-white color. Aroma is of peach and pineapple with a hint of grapefruit, but not overpowering. I find the aroma a little muddled, maybe some breadiness coming in that dampens the brightness of the fruit hop tones. This carry over into the flavor profile as well, though I didn't sense it until the beer had warmed up a little. Mouth feel is somewhat thick and malty. The hearty bitterness and distinctive earthy Mosaic hop flavor kick in immediately and stay through to the end where a hint of pine comes through.

Make no mistake – this is a seriously hop-forward beer. I am really pleased with the balance this beer strikes between the malt backbone, bitterness and hop-flavor. A very drinkable beer for when you are looking for more serious IPA. I will pick this up again... doesn't hurt that its brewed the next town over.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. 11/22/2016 Get Schwifty!

Faint khaki colored three finger tall head, with minimal retention as it slowly slides and settles down the glass to a one finger puck with ease. Mostly clear body, amber orange in color and a slightly pale with a hint of brown. A few odd traces of sediment with later pours.

Classic dank and pineapple tropical hop notes on the aroma. Fairly straightforward and nicely presented with a simple light caramel sweetness backbone. Pretty basic but nothing earth shattering.

Very surprising palate. Creamy mouthfeel which makes for a nice richer malt sweetness and depth from first sip. Rushing tropical sweetness and bitter pineapple nicely accented with a light classic brown sugar flavor in the mid palate. Finishes quite fruity with a light small lingering hint of pine on the aftertaste as well.

Real good flavored new American hopped Mosaic IPA.
