BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Maine Beer Company
Maine, United States
mainebeercompany.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our first run at an American Pale Ale. Flavors and aromas of zesty citrus, passionfruit, and pine present themselves throughout. A very subtle malt sweetness for balance, but this is intended to finish dry.

Just after opening our brewery, working long nights, weekends, and still maintaining our day jobs, my brother Daniel (the brewer) had twins. Cheers to his courage and dedication to making better beer.

Just a really solid hoppy pale ale. Citrus, piney hops, crisp caramel malts. Bitter clean finish with a lingering resin feel. Clean and classic, all-around really good!

First drank this outside on a sunny spring day. Perhaps it was the weather, but I don't think I've ever enjoyed a pale ale quite as much as this one. It just hits ever note with perfection.

Decanted from a 16.9 oz (500 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; bottled on 04/03/2018.
A: Pours a minimally hazy, rich, golden yellow with exuberant head formation leaving a greater than one inch head with really excellent retention and foamy lacing.
S: Fruity aroma with lemon, pine, and sweet maltiness.
T: Semidry. Citrus, particularly lemon and pine. Bitterness light like other MBC offerings, enough to leave a very clean, refreshing finish.
M: Light bodied with strongly persistent effervescence.
O: The light bodied AAPA very suitable for summer consumption. Light and refreshing.

Bottled exactly two months ago.

L — Ever-so-slightly hazy pale orange with a big, fluffy white head produced with moderate pour. Great retention and lacing
S — Primarily floral and piney hops. Hint of caramel malt and oxidization
T — Herbaceous, grassy, earthy, piney. Notes of citrus zest and bready malt, but they’re way in the back. Pretty much just tastes like a standard mass-market West Coast IPA (Lagunitas, Stone, what have you)
F — Crisp, clean, and refreshing. Like with most of the MBC offerings I’ve had, this is the high point. Medium mouthfeel, medium+ carb.
O — Having tried the majority of MBC’s offerings (with the notable exception of Dinner), I have come to the conclusion that they are one of the most overhyped breweries in the region. $7 for a bottle that is on par with beers that can be bought 6 for $10? C’mon. It must be the pretty font on their labels or something that drives ratings up this much
