A chilled 22oz bottle is split between two pint glasses. I have the bottom half of the bottle.
This is a slightly hazy golden straw beer with a pure white foam head. The other pour has a head with more soap bubbles than foam and better lacing than my pour.
There is a very nice citrus hop aroma.
The beer has a big crisp hop flavor. Pale malts provide a good base sweetness. I got some of the yeast in my pour, which I can taste and provide some pepper to the finish.
The beer has a body that's on the lighter side, but carbonation is strong. There is some coating, but it is more watery that sticky. It feels like an easy drinking beer.
I am enjoying this beer. I can see how it would be an excellent session beer for Maine summers. I heard it compared to Founders All Day IPA, and while I don't like it quite as much as that beer, Maine Island Trail Ale does have a lot going for it. I hope I can get some growlers of it for my cookouts this summer.

This a good session (or American Pale Ale as they call it). Has a nice nose and some good hop bite as well but the color is too light for my liking. Reminds me a lot of the Melt Away session IPA from Newburyport without the nice color and mouthfeel (even though I am not totally sure I know what that is!). Certainly an easy summer drinker for those looking for a session IPA.

Tall boys. Great summer beer. Good aroma, great hop presence in the taste that is very well balanced. An easy drinker with some good hop flavor that doesn't taste watered down. Just what I was looking for this summer. 2-3 of these 4 packs always find their way into my cooler.

A-Pours pretty clear. Yellow color. Well sized, frothy white head. Thin rings of lacing.
S-Well this is certainly going to be a hop-forward Pale Ale. Tropical fruity hops come out right off the bat. Citrus and green grass with a grain husk sort of aroma as well.
T-Citrus and some other hop fruit. Green grass as well. Has plenty of pop for a beer coming in at 4.3%. A pale maltiness provides just enough balance but it's certainly very hoppy.
M-Light bodied. Good, hard bitterness. Bubbly. Quite easy to put back. Sessionable.
O-A session-esque beer with plenty of zip. Gotta acquire some cans.
Serving type: on-tap
