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.

16.9oz bottle shared with friends, poured into plastic cups. Golden orange in color with a two-plus finger off-white head that settles to a cap. Not much lacing, but probably due to the "glassware". Aroma is very nice: citrus, floral, and grassy hops jump out followed by a slight malt sweetness, mango, and tropical fruit. Taste is a muted version of the aroma. Good hop bitterness, light sweetness - just faded. Not an old bottle by any stretch - less than 30 days post-bottling, well inside the recommended 90 day window. Light-medium body, crisp but thin, thin, thin texture, moderate carbonation, dry, bitter finish.

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.

Pours hazy golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus grape and pine. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with a long dry, citrus, grape and piney finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2015
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

This poured a hazy deep gold color with a very thick head, but it could have been from the way I poured it. The aroma is mostly floral and citrus.. probably grapefruit. Nice flavor of balanced hops, spices, and citrus. The citrus mostly hits you in the finish. Nice, soft mouth feel which makes it very drinkable.

rjplumer (648) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Mild pine citrus aroma. Hazy yellow body with a hint of amber. White head starts of very exuberant so be careful when pouring. Has an initial blast of bitterness but settles to citrus taste which is balanced with a mild sweet character. Fades to a dry finish.

kevinsenn (1440) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle. Bright citrus and tropical fruit aroma, with a tiny bit of sweat. Smooth mellow citrus and tropical fruit taste, resin notes, bitter finish creeping up over time. Finish is also dry. I love this beer and I love this brewery.
