Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Named in honor of Derry, New Hampshire's own Captain Alan Shepard, Miles & Miles is a dry-hopped Pale Ale, full bodied, with bready malt notes and a juicy, tropical hop aroma. We dry-hopped Miles & Miles with a pound of hops per barrel using a blend of Citra and Amarillo, two of America's most sought after hops. This beer pairs well with grilled meats, sharp cheeses, and koozies.

Poured into an English pint glass, the appearance was a semi-murky orange/brown color with a quickly dissipating little white foamy head that slid off at a fair pace. Barely any lace.
The aroma had some stifled citrusy hops up front, light grapefruit then white bread crust and some biscuits, faint touch of earthiness at the every end.
The flavor was moderately sweet through a blend of the prior aromas. Light aftertaste of the same.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt on par. Clean malty to semi-hoppy finish.
Overall, it's a pretty good APA as with most Henniker beers, they're a solid brewery.

On tap at Piedra Fina, credit given for a well pulled beer in a proper pub glass. Mostly clear golden-amber with an honest finger-plus of soft white head. Nose and taste both well balanced but otherwise unremarkable. Feel was smooth and clean, medium-light bodied with adequate carbonation. Overall, a decent enough accompaniment to tapas. No regrets - given a limited tap list, I'd surely order it again.

L: Slightly murky brown-orange.
S: Grapefruit, pine, and biscuity malt.
T: Follows the nose, with a little mango and tangerine in addition to the grapefruit and pine. Malt sweetness is there but subtle.
F: Smooth, well carbonated.
O: Very nice, hoppy pale ale.

12 oz can. Bottom of can states its good til November 7th 2016.

A clear golden liquid, chill bubbles create a rather large foam dome. Slow to dip, leaving some decent lace in its wake.

Fruity hops and honey-like sweet malt aroma is very nice.

The flavor has a pretty classic pale ale effect, crisp bite from the malt, unlike the aroma does not come through as sweet but more like a crispy wheat. There is also a slightly strange sour-wheat effect, almost like a chemy, chlorine aftertaste im not exactly fond of. Its very subtle, but just prominant enough to throw off the balance. The dry hopped effect is nice, makes the hops pop a bit more, which are still pretty subtle but just about right for the style, perhaps just falling shy of hop flavor for this style, especially concidering it was dry hopped.

The feel is crisp, bold and only mildly dry finish. Pretty refreshing.

Overall, this would be very crushable except for a certain sour wheatie, chemy thing Im tasting. Perhaps since the suggested freshness date is only 5 days away it might be due to age or a temprature storing issue ?? This is unknown, but I have experienced this slight flavor defect in the past, this not being the first time. I have also had this beer where I have not detected any strange funk. Consistancy seems to be an issue.

From the can, it pours amber with a small head, quickly dissipating to a ring. The nose gets the citrus scent with a bit of malt. The mouth enjoys the lightly bitter malt flavor! Ayuh! Luv NaHampshah!

Aroma is dominated by grapefruit, grass, and specialty malt.

Flavor is muted grapefruit dominant, with rich bready, caramel malt backbone and a moderately bitter, resiny finish.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass canned on 2/25/16. Pours a very attractive dark yellow, with a 2 inch sticky white head that leaves webs of lace behind.

Smell is mango, tangerine, pine, biscuit, and grapefruit.

Taste follows mango, papaya, tangerine, biscuit upfront and a nice lemon and grapefruit finish, pretty big flavor for 5.5 % ABV.

Mouthfeel is fairly light, plenty if carbonation, a little dry, and excellent drinkability.

Overall this little brewery is doing some good stuff. Proud that they are from my state.

Can from East Derry
Slightly hazy deep golden color with a huge frothy rocky white head that persists. Earthy citrus and light grass on the nose with bits of mineral water and faint bready toasty sweet malt. The flavor packs plenty of earth and citrus. Bready light cara maltiness. Moderate hop bitterness. Chris Shea told me not to rate this but hell if I can do what I'm told. Pretty good hoppy pale.
