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.

Sampled from a 500 ml bottle in a standard pint glass. Dated "060413".

A - Golden with a slight haze and a thick off white head.

S - Fantastic aroma with loads of citrus, pineapple and mango.

T - A firm citrusy bitterness from start to finish. Lingers nicely. It leans toward the dry side; maybe too dry.

M - Moderate consistency with a high carbonation of fine, at times piercing, bubbles. They interfered a bit.

O - A solid west coast style pale ale.

Maine MO is a very hoppy APA without particularly strong malt. I kinda wish there was more malt there to balance the hops.

A: Orange colour and a big 3 cm head with strong, visible carbonation. Looks great! 5

S: Nice citrus hop aroma and some noticeable maltiness too. 4

T: The main flavour is strong piney, grassy hops. There isn't much malt there to balance it. Still nice though. 3.75

M: Foamy. 4

O: 4

3.3/5  rDev -23.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours a very light gold with a thin whitish head that fades quickly, leaving lacing along the sides of my pint glass. Carbonation is clearly noticeable.

Smell: Not as much as I expected but there are some grassy notes with some citrus fruit undertones. Decent smell to it but doesn't beg me to taste.

Taste: Citrus fruit, maybe some lemon and tangerine, but this could benefit from some more hoppy character in my opinion.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied for an APA with slight creaminess and a lot of carbonation. Goes down fairly easily.

Overall: This is only the second beer I've tried from Maine Beer Company and it definitely doesn't live up to the hype for me. It was ok, but definitely not something I'll rush to try again. I'll take SNPA over this all day.

500ml bottle: This one pours a crystal clear golden color. There was a rather large fizzy head on it that lingered a bit and left some lacing. It has a nice nose: a lot is going on there. Get some apricot, spices, pine notes as the main players. The taste is very good. Just a hint of the apricot, and a bit of bitterness. Hints of citrus and pine. Good malt body behind it, with no sweetness coming through. Glad to see their beers making it past the borders now!
