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.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a thick white head that has some staying power. Lots of lacing. Very citrusy on the nose, redolent of grapefruit and tangerines. Mild sweet malt notes in background. Subtle sweetness with some citrusy hops hit the palate first followed by some bitterness. Finishes bitter, but not overly so. Malty sweetness provides the right amount of balance. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied with lots of carbonation. Overall, a well crafted, balanced Pale Ale that is almost hoppy enough to be an IPA. Another great beer from Maine.

A: A slightly hazy, medium golden colored beer. This pours with two fingers of rocky/creamy off-white foam with a persistent head that leaves sticky, ropes of lacing on the glass.

S: A medium-strong pineapple, grapefruit and lemon, citrus hops aroma along with a medium grassy character from dry hop additions. Mild ale esters a light malt character biscuits.

T: A strong grapefruit hops flavor with a very strong hops bitterness. There isn't much malt backing this up just a slight sweetness with a light bready and slight caramel quality to it. The balance is very bitter and the finish is quite dry. The aftertaste is of hops bitterness and flavors of grapefruit and a touch a pith.

M: A medium bodied beer with a moderately-strong level of carbonation and a medium amount of creaminess.

O: An outstanding American Pale that is almost nothing but a showcase for strong citrus hops aromas and flavors with a very enjoyable grapefruit character.

This was my first beer from Maine Beer Co and it definitely lived up to the hype. Poured a strong yellow into a tulip glass with a larger than expected head. The aroma was a blast of citrus as soon as I opened the bottle. You don't even need to raise the glass to smell the wonderful scent. The taste was light in a sessionable way. Could have drank a few of these. The peach or passion fruit flavor shines.

This was one of the best American pale ale's I've ever had. Thanks guy in the liquor store that I made small talk with for recommending this beer for a Labor Day treat.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass, bottled on 7/09/13. Pours a dark yellow with a sticky, white, billowy head, that leaves behind amazing lace. Smell is tangerine, mango, pineapple, and earthy hops. Taste is all about citrus and a little grapefruit in the finish that lingers a bit. Body Is medium for the style, nice amount of life, a little dry, and great drinkability. Very nice beer, as you would expect from this company.
