4.2/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pours a large frothy head cresting around three fingers of eggshell white foam, very whipped up and airy, lots of dimpling across the surface, the retention is so-so, the lacing is comprised of a few razor thin but very long streaks. The liquid is a pleasing light orange with a mild metallic sheen, quite clear and pretty, slight yellowing at the rims, plenty of fat bubbles, no beads, all randomly dispersed. The nose has a certain purity to it, milled grains, sour mixed white citrus, spoonful of honey, pine cone, not very sappy, minimal herbaceousness, soft cocoa maltiness, needs to warm to really release the peach, yellow apple, apricot fruit scents. Full-bodied, in fact a little too broad shouldered as it tends to progress slowly through the palate. Here it’s much more floral and the white to pink grapefruit and orange citrus a bigger overall element. The fluffy carbonation helps relieve some weight and create lift and mouth perfume. The sweetness of the apricot, peach, pear fruit takes hold with force. Some peppery notes but the graininess lost a bit. Otherwise, does a good job of masking the total sweetness and making it a blended experience versus bunch of soloists jockeying for position.

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.
