Beer added by: BEERMILER12 on 02-29-2012

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.

It's deep, it's rich, it's complex, but it has the lighter body and bite of a pale ale compared to an IPA. It holds a great mix of hop notes with spicy and biting dry bitterness topped with floral and tropical fruit juice plus a citrus punch. It's just impressive how much variety of hop flavors this beer covers. Go enjoy a bottle, even for a pale ale, it's a sipper.

Big head. Somewhat hoppy and light-bodied for the style, which is to my liking. The hop flavors are complex and forward without being too bitter. Finishes dry.

A proliferation of carbonation bubbles quickly breaks through this hazy, pale orange brew. Has a craggy, full, light tan head.

Smells of pungent, earthy hops which are backed by a wall of malt and followed by some orange citrus.

More orange on the tongue with mellow bitterness, tea and grain.

Light-bodied with a perfect pale ale punch, but remember it's only play fighting here, which isn't a bad thing, because nobody likes being knocked out all the time.

Served in a pilsner glass. This beer is right up my alley. Very drinkable, clean and crisp. It lives up to it's wine like bottling and packaging. The color is almost champagne like and I think it would pair with many foods. My only hesitation about this beer is that in it might not have a strong enough taste for a beer drinkers on this forum, but I really enjoyed it.

This is a very good beer. However...

Appearance: Light decent amount of head. Clear golden color.

Smell: Floral hoppy notes dominate this one. Nice and fragrant.

Taste: This one tastes a lot like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Some hop bitterness going on, but it is not as flavorful as the nose would lead you to believe. Its floral, not too malty but balanced very well. Finish is clean.

Overall: This is a better version of SN Pale Ale, its also more expensive. I have not had any of the bigger more popular Maine ales, but if this is any indication, its a solid brewery and one I would like to try more offerings from!
