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.

Had on tap at Churchkey last weekend. Really excited to try this one.

A: Pale gold with a thin white head.

S: Clean and peppery hops with a nice hint of grapefruit.

T: Starts with a nice, crisp piny hop bite, then brings some pepper and grapefruit rind. A really great pale.

A- Another fantastic looking beer from this brewery. Golden orange and hazy. 2 finger head and magnificent lacing and retention.

S- Fruity hops with a touch of funk. Lemon grass, mango, and tangerine. Some pine makes its way. Pale malts.

T- This raised my eyebrows a little bit. Has that "wow" factor. Follows nose well, but takes it up a couple notches. Balanced as can be with some nice spice thrown in.

M- Perfect summer beer body. Refreshing, smooth. Goes down great. Mid body bordering on light. Smooth. Perfectly carbonated. Dry.

O- My second of four Maine Beers enjoyed with my buddy that took a trip to the northeast. I am liking what I am trying so far. The body of this one is one of the best I've had in a pale ale. Hop forward, but balances out really well.

A: There is a perfect golden yellow body with a three finger ivory white head that hangs around for the length of the beer.

S: There is a citrus, grassy, and pine aroma the is very strong coming off the beer. Not much malt to speak of in the aroma.

T: The hops are spot on. A nice mixture between grassy, pine, and citrus with a heavy dose of bitterness. The issue I have with it is that is is lacking in the malt department. If the malt was better is would be a world class Pale Ale.

M: Nice and light as you would expect a pale ale to be. Great carbonation as well.

O: A very good Pale but the malt could come through in the nose and mouth.

On tap at The Salty Pig in Boston, MA.

It's one thing to feel it, but it's another to do it. And with a Mo in Boston, Raul is straight feeling it! Kind of like Pliny's lil brotha (that's a good thing, my peeps), this thang is all kinds of hoppy, floral and nasty. Not nasty like the red eye I took from LA to get here; nasty like your mama at prom.
