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.

Poured into tulip glass. Light bodied for APA. Decent pillowy head. Pretty sticky lacing. Doughy and citrus notes abound. Detectable and firm malt presence. Initially hit with floral and citrus notes that fade to an impossibly clean finish that isn’t bitter or dry. "East Coast" balance. Little bit of a chalkey mouthfeel, and I like it. Attic must.More complex than most pale ales. This is better than I remember.

Tastes great. Not terribly filling. Smells great. Smooth like butta. Can't believe I bought this at Duane Reade.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 D’apparence dorée penchant sur l’orangé, un nuage de mousse onctueux se pose sur le dessus d’une robe plutôt trouble. Cette mousse demeure longuement en activité et laisse une fine dentelle derrière elle. Avant même d’y tremper les lèvres, je me suis surpris à respirer à une dizaine de reprises le bouquet vivifiant de cette bière. Les houblons utilisés dégagent d’invitants parfums d’orange sanguine, de citron et de pamplemousse. Des céréales doucement épicées viennent complexifier le tout. Ces impressions fruitées se retrouvent en bouche et sont combinées à une présence maltée légèrement sucrée. Par ailleurs, un sucre résiduel vient s’immiscer dans une amertume plutôt franche et assez longue en finale.

Pour out of 500 ml bottle, clear orange pour with lacing white head, bottle date puts it at 2 weeks old. Aroma brought nice lemon, orange, grapefruit, citrus rind, some herbal notes, slight hins of piney dank as well. Taste was bitter lemon peel, grass, slight orange into some bread, biscuit, lots of spice notes into some slight earth, finishing bitter, dry. Very well crafted.

Pours hazy pale gold two fingers of off-white head, great retention, moderate to heavy lacing. (4/5) Nose is citrus, pine, tropical fruit, caramel malt. (9/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Medium body, moderate to low sustained carbonation, dry medium bitter sudden finish. (4/5) A very nice APA - juicy fruit flavours and an excellent appearance really promise a great experience... which doesn’t quite materialize. The taste, while decent, is slightly less interesting than what was promised by the nose. The soft carbonation ends up making this feel just a little on the flat side, and the finish dies a little abruptly. Now that I think about it, a little higher carbonation might well have solved all the issues. In any case, I wanted to like this more than I do - and that’s not to say I don’t like it, but I don’t love it as much as I thought I might. (16/20)

Tasted from a pint bottle. It poured a hazy golden hue with a medium white head and minimal streaks of lacing. Aroma of hops and citrus with hints of pine. A crisp, refreshing, and well hopped Pale Ale. Thank you Erinn for sharin’!

Pours a pretty clear amber with a massive fluffy white head with tons of lace. Aroma is pine, some fruity esters and grass. Flavour is pine, resin, mild citrus, grass and a nice mild bitterness with a mildly dry finish. Really tasty beer!

Bottle at Bierreria Rooftop Beer Garden, NYC. Pours a deep golden orange with a white head that holds. Nose is a fresh pine needle and citrus hops. So much fresh fruit jumping at you. Wow. Taste is a pine needle upfront with a citrus and caramel malt backing. Piney bitterness to finish. What an amazing pale ale! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
