A-Kept in the bottle but I believe in Maine Beer Co ;)
S-Some light citrus but more on the dank side, nothing heavy in aroma
M-Lighter than I had expected with higher end carbonation
T-Dry and crisp with an assert bitterness that costs the palate and lingers
O-Drank this pretty fresh at 10 days from bottle date. I suppose I was expecting something different coming from Maine Beer Co...

Poured into stemmed tulip from pint bottle. 2 months from born on date. It’s a solid PA. Not overwhelming or exceptional. It does have a very nice hop/malt balance. Would drink again if offered but not one I would go out of my way to find.

Poured from a bottle dated 12/04/18, so pretty fresh.

Appearance: Pale, gold with slight amber tint, hazy. Maybe a little too pale for the style, but so what? Mousse-like head, high carbonation. Lace sticks to glass as head subsides.

Smell: Nice citrus and a little pine and spice, not IPA strength but pleasant. Mine was slightly skunky. Faint malt.

Taste: Dry, a little grainy, firm smooth bitterness, slightly tart. Pleasant hops in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light body, maybe too light for the style? High carbonation.

Overall: A very pleasant and refreshing pale ale. At this time of year I'd like a little more malt, but that's not a fair criticism. I'd rather have this than most Summer ales when the weather's hot. Many APAs lean toward IPA these days, and I would say this does not, yet still has nice hoppiness.

Pours a translucent straw that turns a little foggy as the lower ounces are poured into the glass. Head formation is massive, netting nearly three fingers of white foam after a rather average pour. Head retention is good. Aroma is citrus, pine and dank hops with bits of toasty, nutty, earthy malts. Flavor profile is citrus, dank and pine hops that feature a solid bite right at the finish. Hops mingle with toasty, nutty, earthy, biscuity malts, adding to the bitterness. It leans bitter, both driven by hops and malts, with the citrus hop qualities doing very little to even it out. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a bold, grainy texture that breaks down into a watery finish. Overall, hops and malts are nice, but this beer does lean bitter. It's not out of control by any means, just worth noting that it features a little bite.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16.9oz bottle.

Small pour, slightly hazy yellow, moderate head and lacing. Nose mild, almost nonexistent. Taste is bitter and seems to be more like a table beer. Pine, some berries. Average body and above average carbonation.
