Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a slightly hazed orange-gold color with a thin, filmy, white coating. Nose of subtle hops and citrus highlights, both blended and light. Flavors of strong, bitter and resiny hops with a huge grapefruit highlight. Tangy and bitter aftertaste, with a clean, peppery finish. Tasty.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Darker amber color with a thin white head and a lot of carbonation.

Smell: Strong citrus and mild pine notes.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Rough medium bodied. Bitter hops and pine notes with a subtle citrus sweetness.

Overall: Good brew, I would have this one again.

Pint on tap at Helen's in Machias, Maine.

Appearance: Pours a mostly clear gold/amber with a short white crown of foam. Carbonation present. Some lacing left behind.

Aroma: Floral hops with some malt.

Taste: Tasty pale ale! Nice mix of floral, grassy hops and caramel malt backbone.

Mouthfeel: On the low side of medium depth. Sessionable.

Overall: Very nice pale ale from the Queen City. Had been looking forward to trying something from this brewery and they did not disappoint.
