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.

Served in a pint glass.

The head on this is big and dense little bubbles. It is cream and hugs the glass perfect. The color is hazy straw and orange with a creamy quality.

The nose is spice hops with a citrus backing. The malt is sweet but the hops and eventually the rye take the back.

The taste matches the nose. Sweet and creamy at first but quickly is dry with a bitterness from the hops. very nice.

The feel on this is great.

Poured from the bottle into a shaker pint glass.

Out of the bottle this thing foams like crazy. Head is huge and takes long to settle, or dare I say... slowly. White head so foamy and big bubble bath galore, I want to jump and dive in!, with a body that looks like it should be a Hefeweizen. Dull lemon cloudy solid body all throughout very opaque. Monster retention for the head leaving a huge cap, and giant clumpy stickyness. I am a fan! This is like an aggressive looking Hefeweizen. I am blown away by this appearance.

Bouquet is a nice soft grained but dry sense, and of IPA grapefruit feeling. Excellent hop profile very unexpected. Bold lucious.

Lots going on here. Lemon thick juice and grapefruit sugars in the mid palate. Hop bitterness and citrus punch on the swallow of grapefruit. No wet texture at all, pulls the flavor and leaves a somewhat dry finish. Almost even creamy in taste.

Overall.. wow I am a fan!! This is easily the best Rye beer I've had, although it tastes like a very distinct American IPA.

Clean, refreshing, light hoppy and a revelation. One of the best pale ales from New England. Taste doesn't linger too long on palate.

Nicely balanced APA.
Poured from grocery store purchased 12oz bottler to snifter.
Deep gold color, slight haze. Head fades but substantial lacing.
Earthy fruity smell with and undercurrent of malt.
Taste is a very nice APA, fruity, a touch of bitterness, an noticeable toasted grains, but nothing overpowers.
Pleasant feel.
One of the better widely available Portland on the right coast locals.
