Appearance - Poured into a snifter, the ale was a light copper color with a bubbly white head topping the glass.

Smell - A very attractive aroma is present. Quite truthfully, the aroma was near perfect for an APA. Notes of grass and bright citrus were present, giving an almost candy-like quality.

Taste - In the initial, one gets the grass at the front before the citrus explodes onto the tongue. Leaving notes of grapefruit and orange rind in its wake, the taste evolve into a blunt force of bitter hopes. The sweet notes have since disappeared.

Mouthfeel - This is a nice easy drinker with carbonation that tends more toward the lighter side. The thickness clings to the roof of the mouth and back of the tongue.

Overall - I am not a big APA guy, but I can recognize exceptional work when I see it. Glad to have Maine Brewing in Chicago.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

1 pt .9 fl oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Bottled on 9/10. Consumed on 11/22. Written from notes.

A - Orange yellow with a finger of small bubble white foam. Cloudy with no sediment in glass, but some in bottom of bottle. Distinct lines of delicate lacing.

S - Lemon rind, melon, and a hint of bready malts

T - Lemon and bready malts, somewhat reminiscent of a wheat. Well balanced malt backbone. Last malt finish.

M - Crisp with a nice tingle in mouth. Moderate carbonation.

O - Quality well-balanced APA. Definitely recommend a try.
