COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first run at an American Pale Ale. Flavors and aromas of zesty citrus, passionfruit, and pine present themselves throughout. A very subtle malt sweetness for balance, but this is intended to finish dry.

Pours a clear golden copper with a frothy white head that leaves lots of lacing up the glass. Aroma of pine, grass, grapefruit, light tropical fruits and some sweet pale malts. Taste is pine, fresh cut grass, grapefruit, light but balancing malty sweetness and a smooth medium bitterness. Finish is dry which makes the hops pop more and let’s the bitterness stick out a bit... Love this apa.

First Maine brew and I’m impressed. Nice lace, golden pour. It has citrus and tropical notes but lots of pine too...just really solid and we’ll rounded.

Couple of bottles at London Lenny’s with dinner. Huge fruity, hoppy aroma. Lots of tropical fruit, grapefruit, grass, and pine. Flavors follow suit on a light body. Not much malt sweetness here, leaving it light, clean, refreshing, and bitter. Nice clean finish with pine resin and citrus flavors. Excellent.

Draft pour at Upstairs. Decent head on the pour. First taste is grapefruit with a mild finish of hops. Not bitter at all. Very good IPA, um... APA.

Poured a bottle from a beer trade from Kaser. Bottle dated 10/14/14. Aroma - WOW. amazing aroma from a pale ale. Extremely piney - awesome. Appearance - Hazy orange color with a good finger of fluffy head. Taste - Very good. Very light bodied beer. This would be a great spring summer sitting on the deck beer. Palate - Crisp, clean tasting. Lively carbonation. Overall - great pale ale. At 6% it is close to an IPA, but a very good beer. Thanks Kaser!

On tap at the Red Star Bar in Chicago -- This is an amazing pale ale. Aroma is fragrant and strong citrus. Flavor follows the same profile, extremely juicy hops in this guy. I loved everything about this beer.

Pours slightly hazy gold with white head and nice lacing. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, and melon. Taste is the same with some lemon zest. Very dry finish. A little thin, but still awesome.
