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.

500ml bottle, dated 5/21/13, enjoyed on 7/1/13

The beer pours a nice, clean, copper color, slight chill haze with a few bubbles rising to the top of the glass. A finger or two or white, soapy head rises up and has great retention and leaves a lovely network of webbed lace behind. The aroma is of bright citrus, wildflower, light pine and sweet pale malt, really balanced, really well integrated. Lots of citrus, grapefruit and tangerine, on the tongue with great earthy pine and wildflower qualities with some crisp spiciness before a smooth, sweet malt profile takes over the finish. The body is crisp and bubbly, with higher than average carbonation that coats the mouth well and has a nice creamy finish that is lightly dry.

Verdict: A damn fine APA from Maine Beer Company, bright, vibrant with a great earthy balance. It's clean, simple and refreshing, yet easily satisfies any hop craving.

4.9/5  rDev +14.5%

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a bright gold color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is an excellent blend of grassy hops, caramelized malts and fruity citrus.

T: The taste starts out with strong sweet flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong but not over-powering hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty, goes down extremely easy, not too filling, decent kick, excellent representation of style, this is a great beer to pound down for a whole evening.
