3.95/5 rDev +1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
22 oz bottle ($5.99 at RSVP in Portland, ME) poured into tumbler. No visible bottling date, although I'm pretty sure this was bottled fairly recently.
A: Pours a hazy-straw yellow with honeydew highlights. Towering 3-finger head with nice retention leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. Yeast sediment is quite visible, even on a relatively careful pour.
S: Fresh, spicy hops jump out of the glass. A touch of bread and citrus follows. Appetizing, if not somewhat one-note.
T: Melon-like notes up front, followed by sweet, juicy notes. Hops are nice and in place, resulting in a clean and floral middle. Finish is pleasantly bitter. Well-balanced, for sure.
M: Carbonation is relatively low; I'd like to see it a bit higher. Still, this drinks nice and creamy, and is more viscous than most pales.
O: I've been rather hesitant with Rising Tide ever since my first run-in with Ishmael, which really didn't do much for me. Daymark, though, is a really nice take on a pale - quite reminiscent of fresh Sierra Nevada pale ale. I'm not quite sure if the rye is doing anything here, but at least it doesn't take away from the beer. My only concern would be the somewhat hefty price tag, as this would be very sessionable if it were more affordable.
A floral, juicy pale that serves as a nice addition to the Maine beer scene.

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.
