BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

Clean and flavourful. Good fruit and citrus notes. Very drinkable. Not overly bitter. Balanced and enjoyable throughout with enough malt to keep it going. Good stuff.

16.9 oz. bottle dated 08/16/16

Pours cloudy hazy amber orange with a creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like pineapple, sweet passionfruit, guava, mango, zesty lemon, orange pith, grapefruit rind, mild caramelized crackery bready grain, with dank floral earthy herbal grass and pine. Tastes like passionfruit, guava, pineapple, mango, some caramelized crackery bready malt, zesty lemon, orange pith, grapefruit rind, with dank floral earthy herbal grass and resinous pine. Feels medium bodied, soft and creamy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really nice pale ale.

Gold in color with excellent clarity. There's an inch of creamy off white head on top. I'm getting some excellent floral hop notes in the aroma. The taste is a well balanced pale ale with floral hops and crackery light malt. The mouth is dangerously smooth and quaffable.

My first Maine Brew co beer.
This pours clearer than I was led to believe it should pour--it looks "normal," although it's lively and full of effervescence. It smacks of juicy hops, like a freshly squeezed orange. Smells wonderful. Crisp, drying, not super bitter but just enough. This was delicious.
