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.

Had this on a tulip dated 012814.

Appearance: just gorgeous amber orange color. Fluffy pillow 2-3 finger head. Lots of bubbles floating to the top with some firm yeast.

Smell: Citrus, tangerine, mango, guava, biscuit malt. Very IPA like.

Taste: more citrus, tropical fruit flavors. More biscuit malt so it is not exactly an IPA. thick creamy clean finish.

Overall: Another great beer from a fantastic brewery.

Have had this a few times in bottle, but this review is on tap.

A: almost clear, golden-orange. Any translucence is more from color than contents. Good head, significant lacing - coverage sustains at thin 80-90% coverage of surface
S: a little sweet, mango mainly, far from overpowering in strength.
T: similar to nose, a pretty straightforward taste and beer. Crisp refreshing flavor (which I am growing to believe is the water they use). There is a light clay undertone that could also be construed as slightly watery.
M: very subtle dryness that hits the front of the tongue with a mildly metallic taste.
O: a thoroughly enjoyable beer from a great brewer. No match for some of their other brews, but I would offer this as a decent entry APA to a new craft drinker to see if they appreciate the smell and fruity/floral tastes that are present in many IPAs that pack a more bitter punch (if I felt they were worth the cost)
