A: This poured a clear light gold with lots of white head.
S: It smelled like metallic copper and citrus zest, with a little sweet honey malt.
T: It tasted like bitter grapefruit and floral and copper hops, with sweet honey malt. It had a clean and bitter aftertaste.
M: It was slightly thick with lots of carbonation. Lively body.
D: This was a nice pale ale, but really nothing special. It had a simple scent and taste, and a decent body. It had a smooth finish and was easy to drink. Meh.

Starts off clear, with a medium golden hue. The generous 3+ fingers of head show excellent retention and lacing. The final pour is cloudy from the yeast and looks like a wit.
Aromas are mainly about the floral and citrus hops, but there is a note of pale malt sweetness. The hops aromas are pleasant and not overwhelming.
The taste is zesty and bitter, with dominant citrus flavors of oranges and grapefruits. Spicy and somewhat tart as well.
The mouthfeel has a high carbonation level and an aftertaste that is dry and mainly of bitter hops.
Overall another excellent pale ale from Maine Beer; hoppy yet balanced to make for an all-around enjoyable experience. After having both this beer and MO back to back I prefer MO over this one, but this is still a solid brew.
Thanks to DrewShal9 for the trade!

on an easy pour this rises up quickly to a towering three fingers, white craggy head floating on a really cloudy golden pond, lots of carbonation congestion clogging the arteries of this one keeping that massive foam cap impressive, one of the more unique hues for an APA I have seen in some time, looks great though kind of like a german wheat kind of thing.
initially pine with some lemony tinge, like lemon tart candies, I am getting sprite on crack (you know if you ever had access to pure sprite syrup and poured a little seltzer into it...), grapefruit halls (that vitamin C pack thing they have been selling for a few years, not the menthol/euco stuff), the lemon twist is really what is making this intriguing.
consistent with the nose the whole lemon thing is happening here, this really adds to the refreshment factor, it drinks pretty light, the carbonation is spot on and delivers the bitter right at the end under the lemony coating, this is a clean and consistent drink from start to finish, it begs for another sip and never loses interest, there is just enough hop bitterness here to peak interest yet not enough to mask flavors... really nice.
summer quencher of an APA, the lemon character makes this stand out, I don't know if I could drink this all day but man it would be sweet to pop one of these out on the deck this summer, I will be revisiting this again for sure...
