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.

A very recent arrival to mercurial Calgary in April, four beers from this Maine brewery have appeared in my fridge thanks to a heads-up from my favorite neighborhood beer dealer wordemupg. Cheers brother. This is only round one and frankly things might have already plateaued based on how f'ing tasty this pale ale is. A somewhat cloudy yellow with orange and red tints, featuring a lively pour with a soapy white head managing to fill much of my shaker pint glass. Phenomenal head retention, stuff sits there like a milkshake. Aroma is sweet, fruity, and redolent with a hoppy spice. I get lychee and white grape, mango, orange, faint pineapple, kind of a gummy worms effect presumably from the crystal malts. An absolutely masterpiece on the palate, with uber-clean yeast, pine, grapefruit rind, peaches, and some weedy and catty notes all in a well-integrated interplay. Bitter but very clean, faint onion and pepper apparent from the IPA-level hopping regime but with nothing sticking out in an unpleasant fashion. Toasty caramel malts provide the backbone and the finish is leafy and a tad woody, with more citrus rind and tropical ghost notes lingering until the end. This could be the best American pale ale I've had to date, a hop-centric brew but with sublime malt balance and nary a flaw to be found.

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.
