4.25/5 rDev +9.5%
Appearance: 1 inch head, high carbonation, gold in color, cloudy
Smell: citrus hops and pine hops
Taste: citrus hops and pine hops--light honey and malt to balance out the beer
Mouthfeel: sweetish start with a dry bitter middle and aftertaste, light body, medium carbonation
Overall: A nice dry and hoppy beer that is never overly bitter. One of the better pale ales I have had. I am glad I picked up a four pack of this and would get it again if I wanted this style.

Big thanks to Tauroe for sending this one down! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 16 oz. can into a Russian River pint glass.
A: Pours a light bronze - quite a bit darker than expected for an APA. Hazy, medium visible carbonation, with a one-finger white head.
S: This has a nice, big nose on it. Pine resin, tropical fruits, citrus rind and grapefruit, a bit floral, dank and grassy, and just a hint of candied sugar sweetness.
T: Tropical fruits, melon, cat urine, citrus and spicy hops with some delicate light cracker malt and a bit of that candied sugar. Moderately bitter with some sweetness in the hang.
M: Quite full-bodied for an APA, with lots of carbonation sensation. The alcohol flavors are well-hidden given the hefty ABV for style.
O: This was pretty tasty - but I would have preferred different hop flavors. The Sorachi Ace is not generally my favorite hop. Still, it was a well-crafted beer, and one I would recommend.

Picked up a case of this last time I was in Maine around the 4th July and after having Can't Dog, my expectations were high
The initial smell has floral and citrus
Taste has tart citrus notes and a bit of biscuity backbone at the end
Mouthfeel with the MW beers is amazing, nice and creamy and leaves a nice coating in mouth
Overall very good- love the citra and creamy mouthfeel. I've given a few cans to friends and they have both loved it

Marshall Wharf Ace Hole
16oz can, packaged 7/12/13
Pours a bright gold with decent clarity but tons of floaties upon further inspection. Good head and retention. (3)
Aroma is has some hop--ripe fruit, citrus-- and diacetyl. (2.5)
Grassy hops, earthy, leafy. Bitter on the back, with a strange, corn-like malt flavor. Moderate levels of diacetyl, but not horrible. Some citrus, pepper, and butterscotch on the finish. Voluptuous malty backbone, biscuit and hay. Full mouthfeel and appropriate carbonation. Drinkable, but I wouldn't buy another pint. (2.5, 4)
This beer just tastes weird to me, probably because of the diacetyl combined with the Citra and Sorachi. Might be good for homebrew, but it just doesn't seem like a pro beer. Looking back on the times I've had it on tap, the buttery character has definitely been there: DiACEtyl Hole Pale Ale? (2)

A very large nose, lemongrass, citrus and a hint of pine. A touch of spice. Taste is the same way, big lemons and spicey. Aggressive hop for a pale, I think this should be called an IPA. Huge malty backbone and smooth but aggressive bitterness. My mouth feels a little numb actually. I could drink this all night. Big but delicious!
