This brew reminds me of a light LUNCH by Maine Beer Company. Very drinkable. Low ABV, but still tons of flavor. Also reminiscent of Founders All Day IPA. I foresee myself drinking a ton of this over the summer. A growler from the brewery is a strong possibility.

Bottled 7/19/13.
A great session beer.

Yellow gold color with a thick white head. Ample lace.

Pine and citrus aroma. Sweet malt.

Grapefruit taste, a bit of lemon also. Pine resin. Biscuit.

A crisp, refreshing beer. The bomber went down easily. Wish I had another.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: moderate carbonation, 1/4 inch head, clear, golden in color

Smell: grass and citrus hops

Taste: grass, citrus hops, and pale malt

Mouthfeel: light body, moderate-high carbonation, slightly bitter with some sweetness at the end

Overall: A decent and above average, sessionable, slightly hoppy pale ale. I would get this again due to the cause, but I wish the beer was more memorable.

Hands down one of the BEST APAs I've ever had the privilege of drinking. Closer to a subtle IPA in my honest opinion. Very citrusy and refreshing. My cousin works for the brewery ad I can wait to see him over the holidays. I only wish you could buy it somewhere else besides New England.

Pours a bright clear yellow with nice head formation. Dissipates to nice fine lacing. Nose is full of bright pine and citrus. Very clean and nice. Taste is similar. A very nice, simple yet clean pale ale. I get a bit more pine than citrus in the taste. Nice easy drinking mouth feel and one that can be consumed in quantity without feeling guilty. Brought back a case from recent trip thru New England. Would buy again next time thru.
