Overall a very average summer ale. Lightly hopped all around. SLight bitter finish, and quite refreshing. I’d rather have a shipyard summer ale if I were in Maine again.

Comes in a 22oz brown bomber..with simple yet effective label.
The appearance is quite attractive a nice lazy pale orange with a tiny head that last no time at all
Nice aroma of hops mainlly smells fresh despite its long journey.
MMM I liked the taste of this beer..a nice pale ale indeed..nice semi-sweet roasted malts followed by an excellent hoppy bitterness that lasts a few seconds very well done.
very nice on the palate..i want to sip this pretty quick
A good drinkable American style Pale Ale..good for anytime in my opinion

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden color, little head retention. Aroma almost absent, even after almost inhaling some I was sniffing so hard. Hoppy, not much else going on, malts weak. A bit of veggie in there, taste finally fades into some faint biscuits and bitterness. Kind of short really. OK, but not interesting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deepish golden color, with a fat white head and lots of bubbles floating to the surface. Aroma is mildly hoppy, floral and a touch citric, with a faint whiff of estery maltiness. Flavor is very nice. I didn't know what to expect, and the label somehow reminded me of Elvis, who I hate. Thankfully, the beer is actually really good. Light bodied, hoppy and sharp. Nice and crisp for the summer. Plenty of effervescence, but toned down enough to allow the subtleties of the taste to come through. Balance is good, flavors are pronounced and clean. My idea of a summer beer. Thank God the wheat beer craze seems to be lessened from last year. I like it.

Had a bottle of this in the dark while camping in Maine, so sadly i couldn't get a good look at the appearance. the taste had a nice hoppyness to it and overall it felt nice and full-bodied in the mouth. Good stuff. i regret the fact that a few years ago i had dinner at Gritty McDuffs in Maine and never tried any of their beers. i'll have to change that.

Pours light golden amber. White sticky head. Faint floral and malty yeast. Starts off light and fruity, golden pears, light to medium body, light metallic flavor. Im not terribly impressed, yet this is very drinkable. A decent session Pale...
