Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
With the recent explosion of over-the-top hopped IPAs, we wanted to return to an India Pale Ale that was well-hopped, but still balanced and smooth. Our brewers wanted to name it after one of our hardworking staffers, so we decided to name it after Dave—the new guy. This beer is made with one hundred percent Columbus hops and only one malt, yielding a nice earthy tone and spicy flavors. Columbus hops have a citrusy profile, which is more subtle than that found in most IPAs.

The appearance is a golden brown body gave a small white head appeared for less than twenty seconds. It showed little carbonation. Barely any lacing was shown. The smell was based around the hops with some slight citrus notes. A bit of pine was combined with the malts. The taste has some citrus in front of the hops with the pine notes taking more of a background. The palate is basically a medium with a smooth yet tingly sort of feel. Overall, this was a pretty good beer. I would have it again.

Nice herby after taste with real ch go bitterness light and crisp as usual. Definite complexity that makes it a head above other IPAS. drank last nite in bar harbor 2017

On tap at the Looking Glass restaurant in Bar Harbor, ME. A somewhat standard pale ale look to this - clear, light copper/amber, thin white head. Nice hops in the aroma - some citrus. Taste is good, nice balance of hoppy bitterness and malt sweetness, with a slight hop aroma/flavor. Mouth is medium-thin, on the dry side, refreshing. Overall, a solid pale ale.
