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.

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

Clear orange beer with a fluffy white head. Smells of oranges and flowers. Lighter body with citrus and bitterness. Light sweetness ends with orange pith. This is a really great beer.

A: Pours golden yellow with a frothy off white head that settles to a thin layer and leaves some very nice lacing.

S: Zesty citrus, resinous pine, a little tropical fruit, biscuity malt, a touch of sweetness.

T: Zesty citrus, lemon, grapefruit, a little tropical fruit, passion fruit, some spicy pine, biscuity malt, and a touch of sweetness.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Really nice bright refreshing pale ale. Pretty happy a keg made it all the way out to CA. Hopefully there's more to come.
