BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Atlantic Brewing Company / Mainely Meat BBQ
Maine, United States

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 Daveā€”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.

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.

12 oz bottle, poured into a basic glass. A great, well balanced IPA.
