Pint on draft at Silly’s in Portland, Maine.

Appearance: A mostly clear yellow with no head. Some carbonation.

Aroma: Floral and fruity with some nice hops in the nose. Citrus. Clean grass.

Taste: Not super hoppy for an IPA, but has some nice bitter grapefruit and lemon notes. Maybe some orange rind. Some grain and malt backing. Crisp. Surprising booze at a modest ABV.

Mouthfeel: Very drinkable. Not a bitter bomb. Somewhat light, in fact.

Overall: Very nice, easy IPA. Nothing too wild, but a refreshing, crisp, flavorful IPA.

Served in a pub glass at Byrne's Irish Pub in Brunswick, Maine.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, brass color with a half inch head, good retention and solid rings of lacing all the way down the glass.
S: Aromas of navel orange and mango with a bit of a little floral note beyond the fruit.
T: Semisweet. Flavors of red grapefruit and rind, resin and light pine predominate. Light bitterness leads to a crisp, refreshing finish.
M: Light bodied and moderate carbonation.
O: An enjoyable, drinkable blend of contemporary fruity hops and a light, more traditional ECIPA.

Many thanks to SawDog505 for this can!

A - Light to medium golden yellow color with sticky white lacing, light carbonation. Very light haze.

S - Light barley grain aroma with light pungent citrus.

T - Pungent tropical fruit, red grapefruit, apricot, a little bit of tea, and a resiny piney bite at the very back end.

M - Medium body with soft texture.

O - This is a nice IPA and glad to have the opportunity to try this!

Poured into a 13 oz Tired Hands Teku glass canned recently, with in the month. Pours a very attractive clear yellow with a solid finger plus head that leaves plenty of patches of lace as it settles into a thin layer of white bubbles.

Smell is marijuana, tangerine, papaya, mango, pine resin, and grapefruit rind plenty of flavor for its ABV.

Taste follows hints of marijuana, papaya, tangerine, mango, pine, and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel is pretty darn big for its size, plenty of carbonation, a tad dry, and drinks bigger than you would expect.

Overall this is a very nice beer, but I am struggling with the price tag. $13.99 a 4 pack for this beer is a bit much in my opinion, but still a well made beer.

Pours a hazy golden yellow, appropriate white foam. Smells a little soapy. Pretty good flavor, some grapefruit. Again, a little soapy. Appropriate carbonation. Overall it is an ok beer, probably a bit past it's prime.

Pint can. > Imperial pint glass

A semi haze over burnt golden color with a smooth, clumpy and creamy, all white thick foam makes for a very nice hat. A bit of clumpy lacing comes and goes like the tide after the liquid recedes.

A sharp and herbal citrus aroma pops off the nose, sweet tropical fruit blend : banana, kiwi, tangy orange and a funky herbal zest. The Idaho 7 hops seem to give off a very unique zesty, herbal and citrus thing. Slightly sweet lightly toned malts are impressive.

A sharp edged, zesty bite hits first. A tasty combo of very crisp and sweet malt with a big, zesty, spicy citrus and tropical fruit thing makes it very interesting right off. Earthy pepper meets kiwi and grapefruit. Super clean, light and sharp mouthfeel is very zippy and refreshing. No long malt effects or chunky hazy hop feel. Just straight clean and easy. The Idaho 7 hop strain, dry hopped delivers a very dry, earthy effect with a mild bitternesd that really gets your attention.

Overall the flavor and effects are very interesting, relatively simple with decent complexity. The charm really is in the extra zesty and spicy dry hopped aftertaste.

From the 16 oz. can dated 12/4/17. Sampled on December 24, 2017.

It pours mostly golden with excellent clarity underneath a modest and lingering white foamy head. Lacing.

The aroma brings out a notable pineapple sensation with some white bread beneath it. Mildly sweet note.

The body falls into the medium range.

The taste loses a lot of that pineapple I was hoping for. Instead I get a tropical bitterness that lingers at the finish. Not bad but nothing out of the ordinary.
