Bottle at James’ a few months ago. Thanks James. Strange, awesome brass-brown sort of color with pretty big white head and uneven bubbles. Smell/taste are both extremely fresh pine hops. Clean finish with not a lot of aftertaste.

Got a bottle last trip to Chicago. Excited for anything from this brewing company I come across. Pours a bright sunny orange color with a tinted white sticky head. A quenching color to say the least. A deep citrus orange aroma. Piney hop character upfront that runs into a wall of citrus. Feels like you bit into an orange with how juicy the taste settles on your tongue. A mild pepper back taste. A mildly dry finish. Very drinkable and quenching. An amazing overall feel. Perfect carbonation while somehow very soft and very easy drinking. A really good pale and now I want more.

Light golden pour with white head. Big grassy citrus hop aroma. LIght but very creamy mouthfeel. Citrus, mango, pineapple hop flavors. Smooth and friendly finish. Another great Maine Beer Company beer.

Au nez, on sent une forte odeur de bonbon a la pêche et le jus d'aloès. En bouche, c'est tellement doux, légèrement amère et fin tout en étant très goûteux et bien balancé. La finale est enveloppante, rafraîchissante et avec un beau sucre résiduel. J'ai trouvé ma nouvelle référence comme Pale Ale!

Gold pour, medium white pour. Great aroma of grass, orange, citrus and caramel. Flavor is by no means bad, but a bit of a letdown after that great nose. Fresh grassy and citrus notes. Crisp, fresh, refreshing.

From 9 oz bottle in a tulip glass. Pour is clear straw golden with a wonderful frothy head. Nose is dangerously fruity with lots of passion fruit, mango, and grapefruit. Medium sweetness. Grains and herbal aromas too. Taste is not as strong as the nose. Light citrus notes with a nice floral hoppiness. Some peppery notes are also present. A long light to medium bitterness finish rounds all this up. A perfectly refreshing pale ale with a strong flower and fruit character.

Bottled. Pours a nice hazy golden color. Aroma is hoppy, lemony, with a biscuity maltiness. Flavor is spiciness, hoppy, lots of lemon, and a biscuit sweetness. Wow, what a balance. A great APA.

Beer served was dated from October 2013 and was beyond recommended serving date. Nonetheless, it’s worth reviewing, as not every beer is served in ideal conditions. It had some staleness, though the bottle conditioning helped to preserve the flavor albeit it was more carbonated. Had good fruitiness to it and was malt balanced. It had a piney, dry finish. I would recommend this beer.

Bottle at whole foods shared by Huhzubendah, thanks Matt. Pours a translucent golden orange with last white head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is bright hop character with pepper, pine and mild citrus. Flavor is same with citrus notes. Medium bodied, full carbonation and piney bitter finish.

Draft brewery all in flight. Tropical fruit, mango, pineapple. Light, standard pale ale feel. Very clean and easy. A little pine and resin. I wish this was available in 6 pks!

Cloudy orange with plenty of bubbles. Crisp, slightly citrusy aroma; hops, bread. Very, very dry. Pine, citrus, some spice. Lots of fizz in the mouth. Long, doughy aftertaste. Not really my thing.
