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.

Fresh bottle date of 12/31/13 and poured on 1/5/13. Kind of strange that first bottle opened was flat so we opened another and it was perfect.
Golden with big pillowy head that fills about half the glass. Smell is beautiful for a hop head: fresh cut grass, subdued citrus, slight pininess
Taste is spot on with a nice citrus and pine upfront but not in a bitingly bitter way and mellow malt profile.
a bit more grapefruit, citrus, citra and this could be even better but won't complain

Got this bottle from Bay Ridge in Annapolis. Well past it’s prime most likely with a 7/3/13 born on date, drinking 1/4/14. The Maine Beer stuff was this old everywhere I went in MD while visiting so I figured I would take a chance anyway. Pours a slightly hazy apricot color with a massive fluffy white head on top. Aroma of zesty, earthy hops alongside some citrus and a big sweet toffee/caramel malt bill. Just smelling this I have to assume it isn’t fresh enough to enjoy as intended so I’ll tick for now and rerate another time with a fresh one. Flavor begins with some light grass, a good bit of lemon zest, grapefruit, and ending with some sweet toffee. Even with this age the beer is light and zesty on the palate. I will have to try this fresh because it must be glorious. Hops are a bit on the stale side and the malt bill is taking over a bit. Goes down easy with medium high carbonation. Nicely crafted beer. Now someone trade me a fresh one.

NYE bottle share at Proof courtesy of Masterson. Pours a nice, slightly hazy yellow orange. Healthy amount of white head with a very thick collar; both of which lasted pretty dang well. Aroma is floral, slightly sweet malt, good amount of sweet citrus. Medium-light body and same carbonation. Taste is overly floral, some pine, again with the citrusy hops. The balance in the nose is not there on the tongue.
