Wow. Wow. So juicy! Had this after about six pints and two bourbons, and at that point was still able to be absolutely stunned and jaw-dropped, which in my twisted mind, says something good! Go drink now, in quantities. Can't wait to have the next one!!!

First had at Robert's Maine Grill, Kittery, Maine on 1/2-pint draft into small Pilsner glass. Clean, dry and even slightly tart pale ale, which pairs well with oysters.

Review from 11/25/15

A - 2 fingers of dense white head. Great retention and lacing. Opaque, unfiltered deep dark orange.

S - Sharp citrus (grapefruit) and zest. Sweet malt backbone. Some tropical fruit and stone fruit (pineapple and peaches) rounding it out.

T- Super juicy pale ale. Big sweet peach. A little bubblegum. A little citrus bitterness balanced with the malt to round it out.

M - Medium carb. A bit creamy to start. Nice clean finish.

O - Excellent, well balances and complex pale. Right up there with FPPA in my book.

On tap at the brewery (next to post office and restaurant). Enjoy the very cold serving temp. I'd call it a solid standard IPA.
