look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Beer is a slightly hazy copper with a thin head. Not much of a nose. Some generic hops with hints of fir and orange, and some malty sweetness. Taste follows the nose. Malt balanced with a pleasantly bitter hop finish, with notes of orange rind. The mouthfeel is light and pleasant. Overall I'd say this is a good, straightforward IPA. Refreshing and good, although nothing out of the ordinary.

First beer from these guys - saw them in a Kittery store and thought I'd give them a try.

Pours a hazy and unusually dark umber-orange color for an IPA. Biscuit 3 finger frothy head leaves a little lacing on the way down.

The aroma is moderate on the hops - a crisp citrus - and there is a light malt flavor coming across.

The flavor is a nice lightly toasted, lightly sweet grain with some bitterness up front. The moderate bitterness sticks around longer into the finish. There is a light sweetness that counterbalances well. There is also some grapefruit on the finish lingering around that, with the sweetness, could maybe be in the tangerine range.

The feel is a little sticky on the lips and somewhat soft. I find it a little hollow in the flavor profile too.

This is a fairly well done east coast IPA with a well balanced malt profile countered with airy citrus hops. It is a nice respite from the very hoppy IPAs I've been downing. I like the lower alcohol level in it as well. Well done and thanks guys!
