look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottled 01/03/13.

A: Pours a graduated orangish golden clor with a half finger of nice looking white head. Very good lacing and streaks of lacing.

S: Orange and a touch of pink grapefruit, and a very little bready malt.

T: Juicy orange and slightly pine hops, slight grippy bitterness which provides some nice structure, a little light malt towards the back end, finishing juicy without any bitterness.

M: Medium body and carbonation.

O: Good stuff, well executed. I appreciate the lack of bitterness. This succeeds as a moderately hoppy PA, and does well with food.

Born on 1/3/2013. Enjoyed immensely on 1/19/2013.

Poured carefully into a red wine glass as to not disturb the yeast at the bottom of the bottle. A large frothy white head that seemed to last forever sitting on top of the orange beer. A fair amount of lacing on the glass. Heavy hop aroma with great complexity. Tons of flowers, pine, apples, bananas, and citrus. A little unbalanced as the malt is not very present, but it doesn't really matter. The smell is fantastic and it tastes even better. All of the flavors just work so well together. Medium bodied with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. A long, bitter finish caps off one of the most enjoyable beers I've had in a while.

I love everything about this beer. The label, the way it looks, the way it tastes... This is an expertly crafted pale ale. A bit of a larger malt backbone could really give this beer some incredible balance and bump it up to world class, but this was meant to be a hoppy beer and Maine Beer Co. has succeeded in creating such. I could drink this every day.

3.99/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Nice golden yellow that gets hazier as you pour the sediment out. Excellent retention and pretty great lace

Scent: Complex hop notes including mint, herbs, citrus, pine and floral notes with some light malt. Yeast brings some nuttiness to the table as well

Taste: Almost like a Lunch-lite if you’ve read that review of mine. Fairly malty and even with some citrusy hop freshness

Mouthfeel: On the middling side of thin with a crispness and refreshing quality akin to most good APAs. Nice, even temperament to it

Drinkability: Probably the easiest beer to drink that MBC makes. Peeper is its only rival in this category but this is higher quality overall

Overall: This is pretty much MBC's "session pale" ale (I know it's 6%), and it functions pretty well in that space. I feel like some of the dry-hopping can get a bit lost, but this is fantastic in almost every way and deserves to be praised and enjoyed by everyone who can get it.

I believe it was $7.49 at Bourbon Street for a 16.9 oz. bottle.

Yellow gold , a bit tarnished, body. Bright white four finger creamy head. Thick coating on the glass, not really lace, more like double knit.

Clean and strong, inviting citrus aroma: lemon, orange, grapefruit.

Firm sweet malt foundation. Lots of juicy fruit. Grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, orange. Big bitter bite at the swallow, which lingers on and on.

Solid light- medium mouthfeel.

A all round well done pale ale. Recommend a bottle, maybe a little too expensive for bulk purchases.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

16 oz. bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter. Bottled on 11/16/12 (roughly 2 months old)

Pours a cloudy deep hazy golden color. A nice full 2 fingers of white head. Settles to a thick retentive layer. Good lacing.

Nice pine aromas with ripe citrus fruits and juicy tropical fruits. Really nice hop aroma, can definatly pick up that simcoe. Malt not really noticeable.

Really quite hoppy, yet still barely in the confines of a pale ale. Nicely done. Pine, ripe citrus, juicy tropical fruits, fresh pine needles. Hops are in your face, yet kind of subtle at the same time. A bit of grainy, slight buttered biscuit malt rounds it out a bit.

Light to medium in body, refreshing carbonation. Great drinkability. Finishes with a good hop bitterness, just shy of IPA levels.

A solid pale ale. I'd really like to revisit this super fresh because I'm betting its something magical. Look forward to more from Maine.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A- Hazy golden straw color with a massive frothy white head, looks magnificent and inviting.

S- Wow, big hop aromas jumping out. This is definitely a hoppy pale. Bright notes of citrus and pine with a good smattering of tropical fruit also.

T/M- What an amazing brew. Big, big flavors, yet nothing in your face or overpowering- it seems paradoxical that they could pack so much flavor in here and yet maintain a pale ale subtlety. Flavors follow the nose except with a perfect measure of toasted breadiness and caramel to provide just enough balance. The tropical fruit plays more on the palate than it did in the nose with a bit of pineapple and orange coming through. The body is light to moderate and almost creamy. Cleans up nicely on the finish with a bit of grapefruit, pine and citrus.

O- What a sublime beer. Flavors and aromas are bright and balanced, powerful yet subdued. This sets a new mark for pale ales.

Bottled dated: 111612

(4.25) A: Clear and copperish with a tall white and creamy foam head Very good retention and equal lacing.

(4.5) S: Loads of fresh pine erupt from the bottle as it’s opened. Very buttery baked bread-like malt undertone is fantastic. Grapefruit rind and crisp orchard fruits of pear and apple. Overall a very complimentary aroma that is also quite potent and powerful.

(4.25) T: Similar to aroma with pine bitterness coupled with juicy pear and grapefruit flavours. Even some tropical flavours including papaya. A toffee and buttered bread-like malt backbone is subtle. Incredibly drinkable with minimal bitterness and nicely balanced.

(3.5) M: Lighter bodied with a low carbonation. Oily texture with a bit of resiny chewyness. This is coming across a tad like semi-flat grapefruit juice but it’s not a game breaker at all.

(4.0) D: Would really like to try this fresher but was still impressed with the taste profile and dynamic aroma. Maybe not their best offering, but that being said, an excellent addition to the Maine Beer Co. family.

From 01/06/12 notes. Not sure of the exact date but was told this was almost a 2 month old bottle. Shared by WheretheWildBeersGo; thanks Joey!

a - Pours a clear orange-yellow color with one inch of bright white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, tropical fruits, pine hops, grapefruits, and some fruity malts. Nice nose, lots of fruits and citrus to it.

t - Tastes of grapefruit, citrus hops, pine hops, tropical fruits, fruity malts, floral hops. Tiny bit of bitterness but almost none at all. More grapefruit here and less tropical fruit than the nose.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink and almost no bitterness for a hoppy beer.

o - Overall I thought this was a good beer, but like all Maine Beer Co. beers, make sure you check the bottled daye before buying their stuff in NYC or it might be months old. This one holds up much better than 2-3 month old bottles of Peeper and Zoe, but I get the feeling this could be great if you got it super fresh. Still a lot of nice fruit and citrus and something I'd certainly revisit if I saw a fresh bottle/it on tap.

4.18/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance:
The beer is a nice gold color that is slightly hazy but clear for the most part. The white head has good retention and the beer leaves quite a bit of lacing.

Smell:
A strong scent of tropical fruit such as pineapple with hints of lemon and grapefruit rind. The malts do not come through.

Taste:
A pineapple taste dominates the pallate with hints of grapefruity hops and possibly a little bit of lemon. Generally, the hops lean on the citrus end of the spectrum. The malt is light when compared to the hops. The malt taste like a light caramel flavor and complement the hops.

Mouthfeel:
A light bodied beer with a lot of carbonation. Smooth.

Overall:
A fairly easy to drink beer but I think their Peeper Ale is the better of the two. My main problem with MO is that the flavor comes on too strongly.

A - Pours golden in color, slightly hazy. Big and frothy eggshell head from the pour.

S - Lots of sweet tropical hops (pineapple, grapefruit, lemon zest).

T - Very lemony to start out, lemon rind dominates and intertwines with grapefruit. Malt comes forward and ends with just enough hops for a pale ale.

M - Crisp Body is just right for the style with medium carbonation.

O - An easy drinking pale ale that was crafted right.

4.15/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Hazy golden appearance. Decent fizzy white head. Very good lacing.

Aroma: tropical fruit. Stong lemon rind. American hops.

Taste: Lemon rind oil. Light fruity hoppiness from the start. Passionfruit. Grapefruit. Slight oily palmolive soapyness but wierd - it's not a bad thing here. Citrus based hop flavor throughout the entire sip. Light malty buiscut taste in the middle. Lingering dry grassy bitterness at the end. Medium complexity - plenty enough for a common pale ale. This beer has just enough malt character to balance the light-medium hop profile to make it extremely easy to drink.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied. Very smooth. Airy.

Overall: Easy to drink. A good american pale ale. Tone down the lemon/citrus aroma and flavor just a slight bit and this beer would be excellent.

Recieved from Crabbicus as an extra in a trade. Big props to this BA. He is amazing.
Drank from a DC Brau tulip (also from Crabbicus!)

The pour on this is a hazy golden orange. Absoulutly beautiful. It poured with a nice 3 finger head that stayed on until I started drinking. Gorgeous!

This is a beer that has a great smell. Citrus is in there. It's not overwhelming by any means, but its just a wonderful smell. Nice bright fruity smell. The hops are in there as well. Damn, this is a fantastic smelling beer!

I was hooked on this at my first sip. Amazing. It's like magic in your mouth. I've had lots of good beers, and lots of great beer. This ranks high in the panthenon of glourious beer! Magnificent!

From the simplistic label, to the smell, all the way to the last drop. This is a wonderful experience. I think this beer will become a legend. People will find out about it, and make this a Mecca for beer drinkers. Great beer. Thanks again to Crabbicus for this!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Clear light gold in color. Forms a large, foamy white head that eventually reduces down to a rather thick and bubbly surface coating. Leaves lots of lacing on the way down.

S: Aroma is all hops. Primarily citrus and grapefruit with some sweet tropical fruit and mango in the mix.

T: Taste is similar. There is a very light, crisp malt backbone. Then there are the hops. Again, from my perspective I am getting mostly citrus, primarily grapefruit with some madarin orange that are balanced with some passion fruit and mango as well as a slight herbal quality on the finish.

M: Lighter bodied. Crisp and effervescent. Mild bitterness.

O: A very nice, well-constructed APA. Easy drinker.

500mL bottle to flared pint glass. $8.00 for the single.
Bottled 080812
Sampled 09SEP12

[A] Pours with a big, bright white fluffy head, 2 1/2 fingers high. Excellent retention. The body is a beautiful tint of golden orange. Modest haze on first pour, moderate haze and light sediment on the second. A wavy ribbon of lace spans 2/3's of the glass.

[S] Mango, papaya, passionfruit, kiwi, keylime pie - all complimented by a nice dose of pine. Light caramel malt mostly noticeable right after the pour and only slightly in the deep background.

[T] Beautiful tropical hop flavor matches the nose and provides a smooth yet somewhat edgy bitterness. The caramel malts support the foundation of hop flavors and are a bit less prevalent than they were on the nose, even as light as they were then.

[M] Carbonation is medium low. A gentle prickling sensation moves gracefully over the entire tongue. Finishes on the drier side.

[O] What a fantastic pale ale. But...I wouldn't expect anything less from such a solid brewery.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a hazy yellow/copper pour with 2 fingers of white head which quickly went down to about 1/2" and remained for the entire session. patchy lacing throughout.
smells of fresh hops blasted as soon as i popped the cap on this bottle. poured into a snifter and getting a wonderful aroma of cascade hops. a very basic smelling apa, but perfect. barley and cascade hops (floral/slight pine) are the main scent. the taste is just as nice but lacks a bit of complexity. hops up front, and a biscuit overall backbone. slight bitterness from the hops balanced out nicely with the sweet grain bill. medium in body, high carbonation.. refreshing, yet very fulfilling.

a great pale ale. this is my first offering from this brewery and damn well worth the wait. seems like a very basic recipe but is perfectly executed. no off flavors, everything tastes extremely fresh.

A: Crystal-clear and very light, yellowish-orange. Big fluffy white head even on a careful pour, with great retention and lacing.

S: Strong and very crisp, clean hop aromas. The primary sensation is of woody pine, chased by an underlying impression of lemony citrus. Really nice.

T/M: Much maltier than the smell would suggest. Sweet and bready malts dominate in the foreground, followed by the pine and citrus from the hops. A touch of bitterness hits at the back end, but not sharp at all, just a slight bitter twang to a well-rounded brew.

O: A fine, very tasty and balanced pale ale. The aroma suggests more of a hop presence than the taste delivers, but it's still quite good.

Got this as an extra from a generous BA. Pours a very hazy, golden orange color. Large white head. I also see a lot of yeast at the bottom of this bottle. This bottle is definitely unfiltered and bottle-conditioned. Scent is...WOW! Blown away by this aroma...very reminiscent of the hoppy beers I'm familiar with in Santa Rosa. Awesome tropical aromas... I actually pick up mangos in this one, along with grapefruit, honeydew, pineapple, and orange peel. Not an ounce of maltiness. Does the east side know what they're doing now??? Taste is just as great. By far, one of the most flavorful and tasty Pale Ales...in the same family as Daisy Cutter, Row 2, Hoppy Birthday, Zombie Dust, and Happy Hops. The flavors are spot on from the nose. No overwhelming maltiness. Amazing hop flavors with the right amount of citrus, pine, and bitterness. I love when such a sessionable beer packs such a flavor punch. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied, with a crisp, dry finish. Drinkability is crazy high. Overall, this is an outstanding beer. This is my first beer from this brewery, but I'm onto them. They're smart. They realize the success of Russian River, and they're using them as a model. Simple labels, 500ml bottles, emphasize the "drink now" aspect, and make the beer taste DAMN GOOD. Much respect for Maine Beer Company. I can't wait to try more beers from them, and will definitely be seeking this stuff out.

Pours a slightly cloudy, pale golden orange color with a 2.5 finger frothy, pillowy white head that has great retention, only slowly fading into a lasting ring. Large chunks of soapy lacing left behind.

Dank, juicy hop aroma that's bursting with tropical and citrus fruit notes which are countered by a floral, grassy presence and some pale malt. Slightly piney and earthy along with some orange peel, mango, papaya and grapefruit. Subtle bread like yeast and biscuity malt. Smells great!

Medium bodied with dry, sticky hop bitterness that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malts into a dry finish. There's a decent amount of tropical/citrus sweetness but it isn't as prominent as the nose suggests. More of an earthy/floral character than expected overpowering hints of pineapple, orange peel and grapefruit. Decent malt backbone but it doesn't hinder the hop flavors, giving off hints of biscuit and cracker. Well balanced, flavorful and easy to drink but could use a bit more sweetness for my taste.

Pours orange bodied with a lasting bubbly off white head. Great smell, grapefruit and oranges. Smooth mouthfeel, great drinkability, creamy. Very tasty orange creamy good hoppyness. The proof is in the taste and this is an excellent American pale. From Capone's Restaurant.

Bottled approx. 4 weeks from the date of this review...

Golden yellow body with a moderate orange tinge. A tiny bit hazy, probably from the yummy hop oils. Two finger tall white head which dissipates slowly, but remains throughout the experience. Tons of residual soapy lacing, and a high carbonation level.

Smells of the usual suspects. Some combination of Amarillo/Simcoe/Centennial. Citrusy, floral, and subtle pine on the nose. Could be stronger, but it's still very pleasant as is.

More pine on the palate than the nose, though floral citrus is still at the forefront. Floral notes carry through to the aftertaste, leaving a refreshing taste which lingers on your tongue. You get a lot of grapefruit, fresh Spring flowers, and freshly picked pine cones here. Very clean malt flavors that do not hinder the hop focus. The crisp/clean fermentables add the minimal of what is needed without sacrificing wateryness or making the beer uber bitter.

Dry with a light-mod body. I could drink 6 of these just for the flavor/aroma before I realized I was in deep & drunken trouble.

A very yummy and hoppy American pale ale. Makes my cheap go-to APA, Blue Point Pale Ale, taste rather average. This beer is very smooth yet more like an IPA in character.

This beer reminds me of my homebrews quite a bit. With a touch of English malt complexity and wheat malt to add to the clean American 2-row grist, and some more intoxicating American hop aroma, this APA would probably be a 5 out of 5.

Add more pine, body, and aroma and you'll have something almost identical to Pliny the Elder.

16.9oz bottle into tulip. bottled on 11.16.12. consumed less than a month later.

A: pretty clear bright amberish gold hued color. bright white head is big. retention is fairly good as well. some clumps of lacing.

S: tons of grapefruit. lemons a little bit of kiwi. very american, very fresh smelling hops here. everything you could want in an APA.

T: passionfruit and grapefruit. lemons and limes. a little bit of biscuity malt flavor. the sugar of the grain lingers briefly before drying almost completely.

M: carb is good. wouldnt hate for a tad more bubbles, but im definitely being nit-picky. light almost medium body.

D: wow, this is some good shit. highly fruity, very drinkable. wouldnt hate more. a lot more.

Pours a clear golden straw color with a huge white head that takes forever to recede and leaves lots of stickies on the side of the glass. Aromas of citrus fill the air as soon as I tilt the bottle toward the glass. Pine and resin with a hint of bread round out the nose quite nicely. The flavor is light bread, cracker and a hint of seltzer water with a nice pine and grapefruit flavor going on. There's a solid shot of bitterness in this one, I'm guessing because the body is a bit light to stand up to the massive hopping here. Moderate level of carbonation with a watery and resinous mouthfeel. This is a really nice pale ale, but I would have liked a bit more body especially with the heavy dose of hops in here.

500ml bottle into my Three Floys's glass. Pale golden color with a thick, rocky, white head to it. It's got a little unfiltered haze to it. Nice lacing as well. Great looking APA.

Aroma has a fresh, zesty citrus. I get some tropical fruit notes to it, which really like. A little bit of pale malts show through, but the hops are the real draw. Really nice hoppy aroma to it overall.

The taste follows through with more of the juicy, tropical fruit notes up front. The finish shows a little more citrus rind bitterness to it. The finish is dry and the juicy hops linger nicely.

The mouthfeel is on the lighter side with moderate carbonation. Very good beer overall. The hoppiness was really nice, especially the juicy tropical notes. Very easy drinking and flavorful beer. Great APA overall.

A- A hazy orange color with a four finger white head.

S- Hoppy, floral hops and some citrus hops, bready malt backbone.

T- Less hoppy than the nose, floral hops, some citrus, pepper/pine, bready malts, well balanced.

M- Smooth, medium body.

O- A solid Pale Ale that is worth trying. Finally can buy MBC near me and can't wait to try more of their beers and be able to buy this again.

1645th Review on BA
Bottle to City Beer Store Tulip
500ml

Bottled 9-16-12
Thanks to Thegerm87 for this one

App- A dark orange with some yellow running throughout. A bit clear with a 2 finger of pure white head that just stays put as the beer falls. Huge webbing and cling. Not as good as Peeper but close.

Smell- A nice soft but assertive aromatic profile. This has a large amount of tropical citrus but yet retains a good hop note with only a touch of bitter and a bit of malt backbone.

Taste- Taste the follows the nose but just tastes a little better. This is a bit more in line with a bigger "Hoppy Birthday" from Alpine. or a "Zombie Dust" from FFF. A good amount of flavors but just brewed a bit bigger. Floral, Citrus, a little bitter. with some good tropical notes and a balanced pine flavor.

Mouth- Medium bodied and medium carbonation. A very clean profile. Residual flavors are of piney hops and tinges of citrus.

Drink- Just a very good beer. Right on par with ZD and Hoppy Birthday in the hoppy pale ale category. Super refreshing. Would love more of this.
