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.

Its color is a hazy amber with a sufficient white heads that hangs around and laces nicely.

The aroma pops with a citric hop snap and leafy green grass notes. Real nice.

The flavor sees the hops follow through along with a prominent earthy malt profile in the background. The levels of everything are really pleasant.

Full mouthfeel with enough crispness lot keep it refreshing.

This beer, along with Hill Farmstead's Edward set new benchmarks for the pale ale style. But this one is borderline ipa.

EDIT: I had another bottle of this just 1 month old anod it couldn't have been more bland and boring. The aroma was non existent and the flavor practically vanished at the first hint of any flavor. Highly dissapointing. I have to dock points for inconsistency. Too bad, because the first bottle was so good. I felt taken the second time around given the price.

500 ml bottle poured into a pint glass, thanks islandboi8204!

Hay golden with a pronounced haze, very good head and good head retention. Aroma is hops AND malts upfront with a generally light, floral-fruity character. Drinks closer to an AIPA in terms of bitterness even if the distinction is rather arbitrary... firmly bitter that I like but without much of a malt backbone, and therefore quite empty and watery feeling.

Strangely not as dry as it could have been with all those malts missing, but crisp enough. Light and easy drinking but with its own flaws, mainly in the taste and feel departments. For reference, not even close to Zombie Dust or Daisy Cutter.

4, 4, 2, 2.5, 3.5

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Nice amber / orange color, foamy head. Slightly hazy, left the last 1/8" or so at the bottom of the bottle to avoid the live yeast.

S: Cracked this beer a few days after picking it up but it still had a great floral hoppy aroma to it.

T: Similar to an IPA but not too hoppy. Good aftertaste, just the right amount of bitter.

M: Nicely carbonated and no funny aftertaste.

O: This is the third beer I've had from Maine Beer Co. and it's my favorite so far. Definitely seems like it'd be a great beer to drink in the nicer, warmer weather. Easy to drink and definitely one I'd pick up again.
