Another offering from the increasingly spectacular Maine Beer Company. Poured into a Sam Adams glass.
Pours golden, with a super frothy and regenerating, pillowy head. Great lacing throughout. Very pretty pour.
Aroma is a bit subdued, but it has a bit of a fresh fruit salad smell to it, with a bit of sweetness. Mellow yet pleasant.
The taste here reflect the Maine Beer Co flavor profile to a T. And that's certainly a good thing. The first impression gives off some melon, honeydew specifically. The more I progress, though, the more grassy flavors I get in the front and in the finish. This brew showcases this brewery's typical hop profile wonderfully, cleanly and simply.
Mouthfeel is rich and deep, almost too much so. But for such a clean looking and tasting beer, this is impressive. Finishes dry, yet clean.
Great brew all around. Zoe is still the class of this brewery, with a similar hop profile plus a wicked spicy bite that makes a wonderful drinking experience. MO is a solid pale to be reckoned with, however. I'd love to see this sucker in cans some day...

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.
