Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BEERMILER12 on 02-29-2012

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.

This beer is really really good. The bouquet is plentiful. Taste has a great start and better finish. My first from this brewery, won't be my last.

4.5/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look: Pours a nice hazy golden yellow with a fluffy white head that leaves considerable lacing

Smell: Citrus with some biscuity malt in there

Taste: Citrus and pine up front with hop bitterness, followed by some biscuit and cracker, with a semi-dry finish

Feel: On the light side of medium body, with full carbonation

Overall: A very good beer, but I will probably never buy it again due to the price. I feel like I should try everything from Maine Beer Company once, but unless it becomes more affordable I likely won't buy it again. Which is a shame because they make excellent product.

It's deep, it's rich, it's complex, but it has the lighter body and bite of a pale ale compared to an IPA. It holds a great mix of hop notes with spicy and biting dry bitterness topped with floral and tropical fruit juice plus a citrus punch. It's just impressive how much variety of hop flavors this beer covers. Go enjoy a bottle, even for a pale ale, it's a sipper.

Big head. Somewhat hoppy and light-bodied for the style, which is to my liking. The hop flavors are complex and forward without being too bitter. Finishes dry.
