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.

Bottle conditioned in a cloudy light orange. It has a 2 finger fluffy head.

The aroma has huge orange and tangerine, definitely some tropical fruits like passionfruit and pineapple. Some pine and dankness on the back from the Simcoe and Falconer's Filght.

The beer hits with those tropical fruits in the front. The general theme is a grapefruit flavor with fruit flavor, bitterness, and slight sweetness. A very clean drinking beer that then hits of pine dankness on the back. This is complemented with some biscuity malt.

Maine Beer Company again with some of the best hoppy beers around.

Big bright orange hue, big white head, and huge thick lacing down the glass. Big citrus nose, orange dominated, slightly tropical. Taste starts off with some biscuit notes, grapefruit and orange through mid palate and finishes bitter and piney. Big bright explosion of carbonation, medium body, and slightly dry finish. Classic American pale ale and one of the best.
