Maine, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

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.

Bright, crisp and clean, this is one of the best pale ales I've had. Not overly hopped like a lot of pale ales nowadays, this beer is perfectly balanced and is ridiculously easy to drink. I want more of this one.

I recently got to try this. I was on a big Maine Beer Company kick and this was BY FAR my favorite of the 5-6 beers that I bought. It was very tasty and worth every penny. I will buy it whenever I see it on the shelf.

This may be my favorite beer. Floral, citrus, subtle pine, clean finish. Try it if get a chance.

Pale yellow honey in color, this ale has a heavy up-front resinous chewiness, followed with a dry quick finish. Deep dank aromas, light head and thin lacing. A great summer ale, no gimmicks here. I think this APA is among the very best of its kind.

Delightfully light and refreshing. Just like I like my APAs - not too much dank or alcohol flavor, plenty refreshing. Nice white head, clean flavors, smooth finish.
