BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Rising Tide Brewing Company
Maine, United States
risingtidebrewing.com

Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Chart a new course with Daymark as your guide. We start with a classic, clean and crisp American pale ale brewed with spicy Columbus and Centennial hops. Then we accent the grain bill with rye grown on small local family farms right here in Maine and malted to our specifications at Valley Malts, an artisanal malt house. Finally we dry hop the finished beer for a bright floral aroma.

The appearance has a hazy light brown colored body with a frothy one finger white head that lasts a good two minutes. There are some bubbles on the sides of the glass separate of the head. There is very little lacing as the beer goes down. The smell is based around the hops, where’s the rye? hmmm... I do not notice anything else, no malts, ok, no big deal I guess. The taste is centered around the hops with a touch of malts ever so slightly in the background. There is some coriander that comes in close to the end of the beer. On the palate, it sits about a light to medium, and is quite creamy with a citrus/hops tang leaving a slight bite in the mouthfeel. Basically, for lack of better words, it is fun. I like it. I would say this is a pretty drinkable beer. Overall, this is a good beer. I have been enthralled by the appearance. I would have this again. However, I will ask this: is this a Rye Beer or an American Pale Ale? Whatever it is, it's well worthy of having again.

Lighter on taste than the trail ale. This one has a lovely fizzy feel very light taste. The finish is nice and hoppy a bit floral but also had s hint of pine. This Maine brewing company is awesome! Drunk at asticou inn Acadia park. 2017

RISING TIDE DAYMARK APA 4/19/17

Randomly chosen third on my list of ten Maine beers up for review in the next two weeks. Rising Tide is from Portland.

a; Translucent to clear gold with an inch thick white head. Head receded to even surface foam and dense lacing which hold up well to the end.

s: Moderate citrus.

t: Follows the nose with moderate hop bite over a bread/biscuit malt base. Dry finish with rye spiciness appearing as it warms.

m: Medium, good body and moderate tingle.

o; An excellent session "rye APA" which rivals my current favorite Fort Hill Farmers Fresh IPA for session brew goodness. A pleasant surprise worth looking for the next time I'm in Maine.

12oz. bottle born 05.23.16

Pours hazy yellow gold with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells like pineapple, passionfruit, sweet guava, spicy rye, malty grain, orange, grapefruit, lemony citrus, with green herbal earthy grass and dank floral pine. Tastes like pineapple, passionfruit, guava, orange, grapefruit, lemony citrus, spicy rye, grainy malt, with green herbal earthy grass and dank floral pine. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a real nice hoppy rye pale ale.

A: Pours into tulip a clear straw color with a foamy white head that settles nicely.
S: Lemon zest, grassy and herbal hop notes and a dry cracker malt base with spicy rye notes.
T: Dry bread, light spice from rye and bittering hops. Grassy and light lemon zest to add a tartness. Some floral hops notes too. More malt comes through to give a touch of sweetness.
M: Crisp light body and prickly carbonation. Slightly dry finish. No alcohol warming.
O: Different take on an APA but with a good recipe this one comes off clean and refreshing so a job well done. Paired well with bbq pulled pork!
