Notes/Commercial Description:
Chart a new course with Daymark as your guide. We start with a classic, clean and crisp American pale ale brewed with spicy Columbus and Centennial hops. Then we accent the grain bill with rye grown on small local family farms right here in Maine and malted to our specifications at Valley Malts, an artisanal malt house. Finally we dry hop the finished beer for a bright floral aroma.

4.35/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

22oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a hazy golden-orange. A large, creamy, bone-white head sits confidently atop the beer. Retention is great. A thin coating of lacing paints the walls of the glass. This is a great looking beer.

S: Floral and spicy hops with lively notes of citrus underneath. Malt smells bready, grainy, and lightly honeyed. Yeast smells bready and ever so slightly chalky.

T: Hops on the attack. Floral and herbal/spicy with a mild grapefruit rind and pine resin bitterness. A good dose of rye hits on the mid-palate and compliments the hop spiciness nicely. Bread and soft grainy tastes ride on the coattails of the rye. A pleasant earthy yeast taste adds further nuance. Oily, spicy hops and spicy rye come back toward the end and linger on into the finish.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied. Substantial and full in the mouth, smooth and well-rounded. Moderate carbonation.

O: This is a great American Pale Ale. The marriage of rye and a nice spicy hop profile is a harmonious one. The brewers weren't afraid to get a little creative here, but they didn't stray too far from the style. The result is a beer that colors outside the lines a bit, but still retains that classic APA feel. Tasty, nuanced, and creative. Great stuff.

3.76/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, light gold in color, high carbonation, hazy

Smell: citrus hops, lime, and lemon

Taste: citrus hops, pale malt, lime, and lemon--light rye

Mouthfeel: sweetish start with a slightly bitter finish, light bodied with high carbonation

Overall: An interesting pale ale/rye beer with a lot more lime taste to it than I had anticipated. The rye is there but it is faint. I have had better from this brewery, but I would not turn this down.
