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 slightly cloudy golden color with a thick white head that has some staying power. Lots of lacing. Very citrusy on the nose, redolent of grapefruit and tangerines. Mild sweet malt notes in background. Subtle sweetness with some citrusy hops hit the palate first followed by some bitterness. Finishes bitter, but not overly so. Malty sweetness provides the right amount of balance. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied with lots of carbonation. Overall, a well crafted, balanced Pale Ale that is almost hoppy enough to be an IPA. Another great beer from Maine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Type: 500ml (16.9-oz.) bottle Glass: Pint mug From: Eddy’s Beverage Inc. in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. Price: $6.99 Purchased: July 14, 2015 Consumed: July 16, 2015 Misc.: Born on June 30, 2015 Poured a golden, pale, semi-clear color with 4-to-5 fingers of off-white, frothy head. Average amount of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Great looking spiderweb layered lacing on the sides of the glass. Good retention. (Sight - 4.25) First thought on the smell was wow. Getting floral, Citra, pine, tropical, tangerine, red grapefruit rind, pineapple, nectarine zest, light mango, sharp apricot and faint peach. Kind of reminded me of Alpine’s Duet. This was great on the nose. (Smell - 4.63) Taste didn’t quite live up to the nose, but very good. Actually reminded me of a session IPA, which I get is pretty close to a pale ale. Got floral, tropical, pineapple, pine, tangerine rind, orange blossom, light passion fruit, sharp grapefruit and juicy apricot. Could almost taste pulp. (Taste - 4.38) Light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, fruity finish. (Feel - 4.63) This was fantastic. Not quite as good as an Alpine (not Green Flash) Hoppy Birthday, but pretty damn close. So fresh. (Overall - 4.50) 4.47 99 A

Drank from a solo cup, poured out of bottle, thank you brother Bob. Has a nice peppery aroma. Has a nice sweet, peppery, slightly piney flavor from the hops.

Aroma of mango, stonefruit, passionfruit, loaded with floral and juicy hops. Taste completely lives up, had this next to Zombie Dust which faded in comparison.

BOD 3/10/15. Pours a clear golden with just a touch of amber. World class head volume, lacing and retention. World class rich complex nose of tropical hops (pineapple, mango), citric (orange), a touch of pepper and pine resin over very subtle biscuit. Light body with a smooth texture coupled with a subtle oily character. Normally carbonated with a touch of effervescence in the middle and a fair burst in the finish. The flavor profile is almost world class. It lacks just a bit of biscuit sweetness to provide more balance and enhance the complexity. It is a tropical hop forward pale ale with a pine resin background. Bitterness is mild with a subtle orange bitterness underneath. The hop flavors of the nose all make an appearance. The finish is slightly dry and a pine/rind bitterness lingers.

Pours bright orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus,tropical fruits, pine, light grassy hops, and light bready malts. Taste is zesty citrus, tropical fruits (mainly passion fruit), pine, grassy hops, and some light bready malts. Has a medium mouthfeel with a very creamy, moderately bitter, semi dry, long finish. Overall, another excellent APA from Maine that is super juicy, refreshing, and drinkable.

On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso. Almost clear in the glass, orange in color and with a dense off-white head. Some curtains. It’s quite peachy on the nose, with a touch of grapefruit and pepper. There’s a nice bitterness in the mouth, with peaches, pine cones and a generic fruityness. Full to medium body and a nice carbonation level. Mostly fruity finish. A bit boring, but nice anyway. 150620
