Brewed by:
Maine Beer Company
Maine, United States

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.

Picked up two single bottles dated 10-28. Have had this beer several times but just now appreciating how damn good it is when super fresh. Subtle, delicate, nuanced and many other adjectives that escape my buzzed brain at the moment ( just killed the second one). Still don't love their prices but this is super high end APA!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

16 oz bottle poured into oversized snifter

A: very soft pour so almost no head. Nice orange color with good clarity, beer has legs for low ABV

S: very crisp orange smell with a little bitterness and some cracker

T: just a very vibrant orange taste so crisp malty crackery on the finish but the explosion of pure orange taste is very nice

M: Amazingly crisp with a dry finish and as this beer ages the dryer it gets very light mouthfeel

O: about near as perfect so you get for a lower ABV pale ale, very clean dry orange on the tongue and very light in the mouth it looks great, it smells great, it tastes great find if drink it. Beware of bottle dates at two months this beer is shockingly bland on citrus, falls off quick. Under a month you will just sit there dumbfounded.
