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.

Pours into a standard pint a dull medium golden with a large blooming white head,maybe a little over carbonation issue.Juicy grapefruit in the nose with a little grassiness as well,not much malt profile just juicy hops.Maybe the best hop profile of any "standard" pale I have had flavor-wise,fresh grapefruit and grassy flavors with a dryer base making for just hoppy goodness.A tad sharp in the mouth but man this is just a hopped up flavor punch of an APA.Wow.

A: A slightly hazy, medium golden colored beer. This pours with two fingers of rocky/creamy off-white foam with a persistent head that leaves sticky, ropes of lacing on the glass.
S: A medium-strong pineapple, grapefruit and lemon, citrus hops aroma along with a medium grassy character from dry hop additions. Mild ale esters a light malt character biscuits.
T: A strong grapefruit hops flavor with a very strong hops bitterness. There isn't much malt backing this up just a slight sweetness with a light bready and slight caramel quality to it. The balance is very bitter and the finish is quite dry. The aftertaste is of hops bitterness and flavors of grapefruit and a touch a pith.
M: A medium bodied beer with a moderately-strong level of carbonation and a medium amount of creaminess.
O: An outstanding American Pale that is almost nothing but a showcase for strong citrus hops aromas and flavors with a very enjoyable grapefruit character.

022312 on the label.
In an imperial pint glass the beer was amber colored with a thick white head and a lot of lace.
Hoppy aroma. Grassy and piney, a little bit of citrus. Some sweet malt.
Hops at the forefront in the taste. Mostly piney and grassy hops, but there was a bit of grapefruit there too. Nice biscuity background.
This was a hoppy, but not overly hoppy, beer. Very pleasant to drink.

NYE bottle share at Proof courtesy of Masterson. Pours a nice, slightly hazy yellow orange. Healthy amount of white head with a very thick collar; both of which lasted pretty dang well. Aroma is floral, slightly sweet malt, good amount of sweet citrus. Medium-light body and same carbonation. Taste is overly floral, some pine, again with the citrusy hops. The balance in the nose is not there on the tongue.
