Bottled 06/19/18, 13:13.

Pours a slightly hazy, straw yellow. Lots of bubbly, frothy head rises up and clings to the glass with as much strength as they can muster. Heavy residual lace as the beer settles.

The nose on this beer is clean, dank, lemony, and grassy. A really nice, organic feel to the nose. Hops and malt play nicely together and create an aroma that is potent, but at the same time very clean and balanced.

Light, crisp, clean flavors. Straw, grass, lemon, and bitter, earthy hops.. all these flavors hit right away. There’s some lingering hop and malt presence in the finish, but overall this beer doesn’t need to boast any overwhelming qualities to the senses.

Light, crisp feel, with a soft but present carbonation and a slightly sticky, resinous finish. Again, just a very tasty, clean pale ale.

Golden color with a thick head.
Mild aroma with notes of melon, bread and lemongrass.
Flavor with notes of oranges, spices, honey, grapefruit, berries , resin and lemon peel. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Ir feels higher than its 35 IBUs.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Quite peppery and resiny APA. It didn’t feel so harmonic as their other beers. But it is an APA that runs away from common ground.

Nice, hazy yellow, similar to many MBC beers - lacing is quite strong. Nose is a balanced malt, wheat grain-like notes, and a bit of citrus with pith. Balanced taste with a similar flavor profile to the nose and a medium light, moderately carbonated feel.

Long sought after, my first Maine Beer co beer, tingly, smoke, light and refreshing, sting in aftertaste, enjoyed near a hot tub turning its insides to heat up for my drunk and aching body

Pours a mostly clear golden color with a fresh white head. Smell was faint citrus hay and lemon grass. Taste was much like the nose with more citrus and pin resins had a cracker meal ,malt biscuit finish Mouth feel was clean and crisp combining citrus and pine resins wih malts best part of this APA . Low marks overall cause of the price, $6-$7 for 500ml is absurd for this brew, Really did not meet the hype ,its well made but dozens of breweries in Minneapolis make the same. Good luck to Maine Brewery on its expansion, they are going to have to repackage(4pk's) and lower MSRP to expand and have sell thru at retail.

Poured into a taster glass. This poured straw like in color and formed a surprisingly strong crown. This had huge lemon notes and a clean finish. Everything I've had from MBC has been so clean.
