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.

Recieved from Crabbicus as an extra in a trade. Big props to this BA. He is amazing.
Drank from a DC Brau tulip (also from Crabbicus!)

The pour on this is a hazy golden orange. Absoulutly beautiful. It poured with a nice 3 finger head that stayed on until I started drinking. Gorgeous!

This is a beer that has a great smell. Citrus is in there. It's not overwhelming by any means, but its just a wonderful smell. Nice bright fruity smell. The hops are in there as well. Damn, this is a fantastic smelling beer!

I was hooked on this at my first sip. Amazing. It's like magic in your mouth. I've had lots of good beers, and lots of great beer. This ranks high in the panthenon of glourious beer! Magnificent!

From the simplistic label, to the smell, all the way to the last drop. This is a wonderful experience. I think this beer will become a legend. People will find out about it, and make this a Mecca for beer drinkers. Great beer. Thanks again to Crabbicus for this!

Poured into a Nonic from the MBC bottle dated 20140701

A: Clear body and a big white soapy head that settled into a tight 4mm disk. It can not be excited back to a big head, yet has medium activity still 1/2 way through.

S: Pineapple, tropical fruit. Modern hop, like an oniony azzaca and mosaic, is mild but present. Gentle and a reminder that lightly hopped beer must be consumed fresh. Malts are lighter 2row style with some very faint aliphatic hydrocarbon notes and malted sweetness are way back in the nose and do not get in the way, as the yeast also seems to be a very gentle and unobtrusive strain.

T: WOW. Great freshness and very hop driven on the uptake. Aeration of the uptake is initially very tropical and light, then goes to a sweet malt note.

M: Slick on the palate, mildly bitter in the middle and a slight malt dry finish. well balanced finish that stays creamy on the tongue for quite some time. Tight bubbles in appearance must be playing a part on that front.

O: crazy good Pale Ale, and easily eclipses my favorite from Founders. Great example of the style.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Cloudy, perfect looking pale ale, decent carbonation. Can't imagine you can make a pale ale look much better than this.
S: Grapefruit, orange, citrus, not much sweetness, smells almost dry, nice.
T: Very citrus, orange, grapefruit, a little bit of malty light sweetness, very nice. Quite dry, very pronounced bitterness, but not too much. Crisp. Very, very nice beer.
M: Would have preferred it just a little less dry, maybe a little less carbonation.
O: Really solid beer. Probably my favorite from Maine beer.
