BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Maine Beer Company
Maine, United States
mainebeercompany.com

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.

Pours heady translucent orange. Smell is dark tropical fruit and malt. Taste is tropical fruit, fruit rind, and hefty malt balance. Feel is slightly thin and dry. Bitterness translates into nondescript bitter note in taste, and not in a good way. Not bad, but not as high quality as I expected from Maine Brewing Company. Rough around the edges. Smell is phenomenal and does not translate into taste at all.
