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.

even better than lunch, this is one of the best beers made in maine as far as I am concerned. it pours a hazy straw color with an orange glow. the head isn't much, white and airy, but not lasting real long. the nose is like fresh pineapple juice, not bitter at all, real tropical and real fresh, reminds me of hill farmstead or lawsons stuff, east coast and hoppy, but more than high alcohol oily dankness, its insane how good this is. a veritable fruit punch of hop flavors, lemon and grapefruit too. I love the intensity of it, while staying not too bitter. jazzy carbonation, clean finish and feel, as good as any American pale on the market I think. the lightness is what impresses me most. I could drink this forever, and my 10 ounce pour just isn't enough! all beers on at maine beer company were tasty, great examples of their respective styles, but this to me was the pick of the litter. already looking forward to my next one, whenever I may be so lucky. a true gem.

A very hoppy nose and great beer. It was a very welcomed surprise as we do not get many Maine beers down this way! It held up well to other beers as well as I had just come from an IPA tasting. This beer vanquished the ones I had just tried and set up shop on my palate!

From the 22 fl. oz. bottle stamped: 052113-15. Sampled on August 13, 2013.

The color is yellow to orange with a tremendous, lacing-leaving puffy white head and cloudy through and though. Looks like its unfiltered and bottle conditioned.

The aroma is very hopped up with a piney, floral character and a lesser citrus note along with an even lesser pale malt, biscuit feel. This smells more like an American IPA.

The body was nice and in the medium range with a smooth creaminess going on.

The taste also had a good hop flavor although the roasted malts were a but more forward in the taste than on the nose. Hop bitterness at the finish.

A- A very lively, slightly off-white head sits on top of a pale, transparent straw-colored body.

S- Lots of citrus, grapefruit, lemon, even hints of lime. Tropical fruits sneak in too, as some peach and mango aromas come through. Just a hint of toasted malt is in th nose as well.

T- Malt comes through way more in the taste than it does in the nose. Some of those fruity flavors still come through, with lots of citrus and hints of peach playing off of the toasted malt.

M- Medium bodied, medium carbonation with a somewhat creamy feel.

O- A nice pale ale. Hoppy, but balanced.

22 oz bottle. Pours hazy-golden with long lasting foamy head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, biscuit malt and orange marmalade. Body is medium and tangy. Citrusy, floral hops, biscuit malt, yeast and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and bitter. Delicious brew.
