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.

a: hazy burnt orange with some bright yellow - like yellow waves of grain. large 3 finger rocky thick white head

s: potent. a punch of hops to the face. loads of grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and pine. its a juicy, earthy smelling hopness. there are some sweet malt in here too. smells very crisp and clean

t: holy MOly (see what i did there). i was a little worried that bitterness would be overwhelming from the aroma, but it is incredibly smooth. its mostly grapefruity and pine - definitely East coast tasting. there is like a crystally-caramel malt that smooths out the flavor after the hops it. i'm picking up a little bit of pineapple and passionfruit in here as well. real nice

m: medium, with some carbonation that fizzez in your mouth

o: real good stuff. its not too complex, but is so smooth and clean. i feel healthier just drinking this
