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.

Pennsylvania

3.91/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served on draft at three rivers six pack. Pint glass. Pours clear dark grass yellow, hints of tangerine, a bit lighter than orange, mostly light, actually. Half-finger white head sticks around, lots of lacing on the glass.

Subtle floral citrus aromas, very sweet.

Flavor is way more intense, with a dry finish, very dry. Citrus hops most prominent, slight sweet taste, with a hint of cream. Definitely zesty.

Feel is also dry, but fresh, crisp and bitter on the end.

Overall, clean and crisp, pretty much what I expected, if a bit dry. Maine has a good setup, look forward to trying more in the future, cheers.

Serving type: on-tap

North Carolina

4.01/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a hazy honey color with a massive head; great retention and multiple layers of lacing

Smell: Vaguely bitter aroma - more East Coast woodsy/earthy bitterness than citrusy

Taste: The malt base adds just a touch of sweetness but is pretty clean with the hops bringing good bitterness in the middle; some tropical fruit elements but they bitterness is more earhty and slightly grassy

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This bottle is a couple of months old and, from reading the other reviews, I suspect the hop profile on this one fades rather quickly; a very nice beer but I am not digging it like some others who conceivably had a fresher example

4.35/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Pours into a standard pint a dull medium golden with a large blooming white head,maybe a little over carbonation issue.Juicy grapefruit in the nose with a little grassiness as well,not much malt profile just juicy hops.Maybe the best hop profile of any "standard" pale I have had flavor-wise,fresh grapefruit and grassy flavors with a dryer base making for just hoppy goodness.A tad sharp in the mouth but man this is just a hopped up flavor punch of an APA.Wow.
