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.

500ml Bottle from Party Source Syracuse NY for $8 tax in

Appearance - Slightly hazy gold colour with an average size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, hops, apricots, grapefruit/lemons

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, grapefruit/lemons, and resiny hops. There is also some caramel and apricots.

Overall - Another very good and really hoppy beer from this brewer. A tad pricey but you can tell that there are some quality ingredients being used. It reminds me a little bit of the founders all day IPA.

16oz. bottle poured into a nonic. Bottled 10-22-13

(A)- Pours a lightly hazed golden orange color. Produced a giant 3+ finger frothy white head. Great retention and tons of clumpy lacing.

(S)- A great balance between juicy citrus and mellow pine bitterness. A little lime and pineapple. Minimal underlying sweetness.

(T)- Not as hoppy as the smell let me to believe. Mostly some pine with very mellow honey sweetness. Extremely small hint of lemon citrus on the finish.

(M)- A good carbonation level. A git too strong on the pine bitterness side for my tastes, but otherwise has a good feel to it overall.

(O)- I look forward to seeing what else Maine brewing puts out, but for $6 a bottle, I suppose I was expecting more, but it is one solid pale ale if you like alot of pine in yours.

500 ml bottle into pint glass, bottled on 10/22/2013. Pours moderately hazy golden orange color with a nice 2-3 finger dense and rocky off white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts the entire glass. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pineapple, peach, tangerine, grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, floral, grass, light honey, light caramel, light pine, and floral earthiness. Fantastic aromas with huge hop complexity and a fair amount of malt balance; and great strength. Taste of big pineapple, tangerine, orange peel, peach, grapefruit, lemon zest, floral, grass, pine, light honey, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Good amount of earthy floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, orange peel, lemon zest, floral grass, light pine, light honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of bright juicy hop flavors; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic pale ale! All around awesome complexity and balance of bright hop and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.
