look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Presently, this is the #13 ranked Pale Ale here on BA. Competitive category... this had better be good.
Served in an Olde Hickory shaped-glass.
A: Poured an apricot color, quite hazy, and with nice half finger or so head on top.
S: POW fruit! Mango upfront, with a good bit of leafy hops to boot. Orange peel might be in there as well, but I wouldn't count on it or anything.
T: There's something about the Pale Ale as opposed to the IPA that really moves me. This strikes a very fine balance between orange juice and beer... mostly beer. Excellent all around hop-wise, and infinitely drinkable.
M: Bubbly and playful in the carbonation sense, with the most ridiculous lacing my eyes have ever seen.
O: Awesome Pale Ale for sure. I've yet to experience a bad beer by Maine Brewing Co.

500ml bottle poured into tulip 12/4/14
A hazy pale orange, not a whole lot of visible bubbles but it pours a big head that sits around for a while leaving partial rings deep down the glass ending up as a low island, looks great
S plenty of tropical fruit, canned peaches, sweet orange, pineapple, and bruised mango, some floral notes, and a hint of pine, has a big nose going on and I can smell my glass an arms length away on the table
T not far from then nose but just toned down a little, some lemon rind and slightly more pine and some bready malt in the background
M lighter side of medium, bitter without turning my mouth inside-out, very gritty in the mouth, creams up, and lots of citrus rind on the finish
O this one works well for me, hopped to hell but not a complete runaway, IPA level of hops no doubt
I was pretty stoked to see this brewery in Alberta and my first experience was a good one. I'm looking forward to the other 3 I have in my fridge.
