A- Tall chalice receives a hazy pale straw yellow brew that has a four finger, massive and foamy white cap that has good retention. Large webs of lace.

S- All about the hops here. The hops are a mixed bag with a nice variety in the aroma profile. At first you get hit with a wave of tropical fruits but eventually it balances out with spicy, floral, dank, pine, grapefruit and sweet stone fruit hops joining. A touch of pale base barley.

T- Shifts just a touch here as it gets more bitter and that accentuates the zesty citrus and pine hopes. Grapefruit, bitter pine, oranges, tangerine and floral hop notes lead into hints of melon, dank herbs, bubble gum and pineapple. A basal sweetness and just a hint of pale grains.

MF- Light bodied with a medium level of carbonation and a bit of a creamy texture. A touch on the thinner side of things and rather foamy for the style. Ends with a medium-sharp bitterness.

A really nice aroma leads into a solid hop flavor that has just about it all. The body could use some heft but in the end another good Barreled Souls brew and a very easy drinker.

32 oz growlette was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a yellow orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Peachy, stone fruit, citrus, floral, biscuity, and caramel malts.

Taste: Nice peach and stone fruit flavor, wheaty, bready, biscuity, and caramel malts. Light bitternessand chewy notes too.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light, crisp, refreshing, light bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Nice and tasty hop flavor that I could drink from time to time.

32 ounce growler, drank on August 12, 2016, bought a couple days earlier.

Look - 4.5 - Aggressive pour yielded lots of white head, eventually settled down to a nice top coating. Nice gold color with the most artful lacing I've ever seen - looks like a Burmese tapestry.

Smell - 4.5 - Nice dank citrus

Taste - 4.5 - On the bitter side, very tasty

Feel - 4.55 - Thick and solid mouth feel - probably too much for an IPA, but I like it that way.

Overall - 4.55 - Really nice beer - bitterness might be off putting to some of us flowery East Coast hop heads, but I'd say it's on par with Pliny - and that's a big compliment. Given the thickness and bitterness, I wouldn't call this "coiffable" - I'd say it's more of a sipper, but with big sips. Really enjoyed this.

4.21/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

32oz howler poured into shaker pint filled on 5/25

A: nice gold light amber body great clarity very little head

S: smells like candied pineapple and mangoes with a light crackery malt backbone

T: cantaloupe, mango, peach, and pineapple surprisingly not as sweet as the nose would imply can taste a little of the alcohol.

M: fuller a little bit of a syrupy body but not in a bad way it makes the beer feel more full by clinging to the tongue

O: very easy drinking beer with a nice amount of fruit explosion. If this were a more popular brewery this would be highly sought after. Worth a look if you are near Saco, Me.
