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.

Pint bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar in Plymouth dated 9/19/17. Hazy gold color and citrusy nose is followed by citrus flavors that may include orange and meyer lemon along with some malt. A very well-balanced beer with very little grapefruit bitterness. Enjoyable and easy-drinking.

Poured from a 16.9-ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Sample was approximately one week past bottling date. Beautiful juicy-looking bright orangeish-yellow color, with a thick white head that seemed to hang on forever before receding and leaving scads of sticky lacing. Big aromas and flavors of orange, Meyer lemon, and grapefruit, with lots of citrus-
zest bitterness and a bit of crackery malt sweetness to balance everything perfectly. Dry finish, with a pleasant lingering bitterness. This is, simply put, one fantastic beer. Bravo!

Pours heady translucent orange. Smell is dark tropical fruit and malt. Taste is tropical fruit, fruit rind, and hefty malt balance. Feel is slightly thin and dry. Bitterness translates into nondescript bitter note in taste, and not in a good way. Not bad, but not as high quality as I expected from Maine Brewing Company. Rough around the edges. Smell is phenomenal and does not translate into taste at all.
