Presently, this is the #13 ranked Pale Ale here on BA. Competitive category... this had better be good.
Served in an Olde Hickory shaped-glass.
A: Poured an apricot color, quite hazy, and with nice half finger or so head on top.
S: POW fruit! Mango upfront, with a good bit of leafy hops to boot. Orange peel might be in there as well, but I wouldn't count on it or anything.
T: There's something about the Pale Ale as opposed to the IPA that really moves me. This strikes a very fine balance between orange juice and beer... mostly beer. Excellent all around hop-wise, and infinitely drinkable.
M: Bubbly and playful in the carbonation sense, with the most ridiculous lacing my eyes have ever seen.
O: Awesome Pale Ale for sure. I've yet to experience a bad beer by Maine Brewing Co.

On tap. Pours a burnt golden orange in the glass with a ½ finger of bright-white head. This stay smooth and creamy looking, leaving back a robust smattering of lacing behind. Smells fresh and floral with a little dankness and pine mixed in. Lot of juicy tropical fruit notes. Taste has a zesty grapefruit bitterness with a resinous finish. Sticky notes of fruit, herbal flavors and neutral malt sweetness do a tremendous job of balancing and adding extra flavor to this. The mouthfeel is medium with a firm and sharp feel in the mouth which is undercut by just the right amount of creaminess. This was really nice. An APA with a good bit of aggressive to it yet was still extremely well balanced, with those tropical passion fruit flavors in particular really standing out. Well worth checking out.
