American Pale Ale (APA) |  6.00% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our first run at an American Pale Ale. Flavors and aromas of zesty citrus, passionfruit, and pine present themselves throughout. A very subtle malt sweetness for balance, but this is intended to finish dry.

Got this as an extra from a generous BA. Pours a very hazy, golden orange color. Large white head. I also see a lot of yeast at the bottom of this bottle. This bottle is definitely unfiltered and bottle-conditioned. Scent is...WOW! Blown away by this aroma...very reminiscent of the hoppy beers I'm familiar with in Santa Rosa. Awesome tropical aromas... I actually pick up mangos in this one, along with grapefruit, honeydew, pineapple, and orange peel. Not an ounce of maltiness. Does the east side know what they're doing now??? Taste is just as great. By far, one of the most flavorful and tasty Pale Ales...in the same family as Daisy Cutter, Row 2, Hoppy Birthday, Zombie Dust, and Happy Hops. The flavors are spot on from the nose. No overwhelming maltiness. Amazing hop flavors with the right amount of citrus, pine, and bitterness. I love when such a sessionable beer packs such a flavor punch. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied, with a crisp, dry finish. Drinkability is crazy high. Overall, this is an outstanding beer. This is my first beer from this brewery, but I'm onto them. They're smart. They realize the success of Russian River, and they're using them as a model. Simple labels, 500ml bottles, emphasize the "drink now" aspect, and make the beer taste DAMN GOOD. Much respect for Maine Beer Company. I can't wait to try more beers from them, and will definitely be seeking this stuff out.

As far as APA's go, this is perfect. Appearance is a hazy khaki orange. Smells amazing, big time citrus- orange peel and lemon in particular... a bit of pineapple as well. Taste is slightly hop forward and heavy on the citrus, but mellow and refreshing enough to remind you that this isn't an IPA. My new favorite pale ale, and it isn't close.

16.9 oz bottle snagged at a liquor store in Albany, NY.

Pours sunshine golden with a bright white head. Smells like aggressive citrus hops with large, variegated citrus nodes including pineapple, grapefruit and orange, and this is balanced exceptionally well with a straight-up east coast malt profile that is super soft, round, and yeasty.

Tastes, thankfully, much like it smells. Excellent, excellent balance with the big aggressive hop nodes tied perfectly to warm, round malt by way of some amazing yeastmanship.

As wonderful as Maine's Lunch is, I think I like Mo a little bit better.
