Minor head, although it took a couple of pours to top it off. Little lace. The liquid is cloudy with dirty gold color.

The smell is not as fruity to me as others have described. Sure, I get melon and other tropical fruits but I find there's a stronger leathery start to the nose followed by a bit of berry sweetness.

The flavor is "raw" to me with a direct taste of bitter hop cones and straight up, dry malt. There's a touch of darker flavors, I'm not sure where they may be coming from. Mild alcohol. The brew leans thin with a moderate carbonation level. I like the aftertaste. While bitter, it has enough base to be nearly balanced.

Poured on draft at the brewery.

Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a finger of white head. The head leaves minimal lacing before settling into a halo.

The aroma brings notes of orange juice, grapefruit, honey, cantaloupe, and sweet cereal grains with the foggiest idea of earthy, dank pine.

The flavor is mango-flavored orange juice, grapefruit, honeydew melon, and tangerines followed by a subtle wave of graham cracker malt and a subtle pine finish.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly harsh with a good amount of alcohol burn. Otherwise relatively creamy and smooth.

Overall, a very good DIPA that is exploding with flavor yet is a tad harsh on the tongue. Definitely a beer worth trying if you're in Maine.

Pours a *somewhat* thin hazed orange with a one-finger lingering head. Smells of crisp orange and citrus fruits, zest, peppery hops. Taste is ripe melon, cantaloupe, orange peel, bitter and dry. Medium mouthfeel, not thin, not chewy. Overall a nice new DIPA out of Maine.

16oz can dated 11/20/17.

Pours hazy gold with a white head of moderate duration and some spongy lacing. Garlic-rubbed orange in the nose. Dank and citrusy. Medium bodied with a tacky mouthfeel. Ripe orange on the palate with hints of mango, garlic, and grapefruit. Low bitterness with barely a trace of malt. Finishes with plenty of tropical fruit.

Tasty beer. Some creaminess in the body would put this one over the top.

Pours a hazy deep orange gold color with a foamy 2 finger head.

Aroma is a nice orange grapefruit blend with a hint of dusty alcohol-y malt. I'm actually not a fan of this smell.

Taste is hops up front with a semi-sweet orange flavor along with a slightly bitter white grapefruit rind flavor. I think these flavors would be more palatable if not for the heavy handed alcohol burn interfering. I know this is a DIPA but I feel the alcohol is too intrusive and the hops are trying to save the day unsuccessfully.

Feel is soft and clean as there is not much malt coming through. Bitterness is fairly low despite the fruit rind flavor.

Overall this is a good beer in that it brings a juicy flavor to a strong DIPA. However I think the balance is not right. I will not likely reach for this one again - too bad cuz I was hoping this is one I could keep coming back to when I visit Portland. Lone Pine has plenty of other beers that match my tastes so they will still get my money :)

L - the can art sure its appetizing. Reminds me of OG Julius. Some RAR vibes too. Pours a muted copper orange opacity. Like an evening sunset in China. Fragile-looking head with big, quickly-dissipating bubbles.

S - definitely getting fresh-squeezed orange juice. Raw and natural. Cane sugar and sticky dankosity. Spicy honeydew melon and wildflower honey itself.

T - more of that crackery honey zest with citrus pops left and right. None of that artificial sticky sweet stuff, but fresh-squeezed orange, lemon, tangerine, and nectarine juice mixed with that sightly tart, sightly bitter, sightly dry rind juice that inevitably makes an appearance when grabbing an entire fruit and mashing that shit between your palms to eek out every last bit into your glass. Sure, most of it ends up on the table, but that's why those with experience bust out the bowl and then the plate. Great balance between juice, pale malts, and tangy bitterness. Not grassy bitter, but warheads bitter after you've sucked away 80% of the bitter coating. Maybe a touch of heat as the hop oils sit on your tongue long after the sip. The tiniest whiff of orange creamsicle if you sit down and commit to full laser focus on the flavors.

F - low in carb and creamy at first, but then it fluffs up a bit to open up extra lanes on the citrus highway to facilitate maximum flavor distribution.

O - my first Lone Pine brew and it won't be my last. Satisfies the juice tooth but is tastefully balanced with rind bitterness to keep this far away from cloying territory and deep into I NEED MORE territory.
