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.

Bottle into pint glass. Hoppy floral with minimal pine and on the bitter side. A touch of sweetness at the end but it quickly retreats.

Dark golden Orange. Draft at pizza chef in Vermont great clean aroma. Cirrus and lemon and orange peel. Good mouthfeel. Sweet with heavy grapefruit. Some resin. Super drinkable and crushable.

Süffiger, hell hopfiger Antrunk. Zunehmend bitter, zitrusartig, süffig bleibend. Auch die Hopfigkeit nimmt mit der Zeit zu, rund. Kurzer blumiger Nachgeschmack. 10/11/12/10/11/11

This is extremely crisp and so damn refreshing. For a first run at an American pale ale this is almost damn near perfect from the brewer. The citrus and pine are so balanced ending with a smooth dry finish. This left me wanting more...and more...Cheers to Maine!

Flight at tasting room. Just ok for me. Honestly drinks more like a session IPA than a pale. Pours light-ish hazy orange with white head. Citrus and pine dominate. Fairly light bodied. Bitter/dry in the finish. Average pale for me. Seems I am in the minority opinion on this one- will have to give it another shot next visit.

dhatton (97) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Poured from pounder bottle. Cloudy dark golden body. Tight white blanket of foam woven with long-lasting bubbles. Some lacing. Fantastic initial aroma of citrus; tangerines, apricots, some pineapple. Scents of fresh grass and biscuits are also present. Taste consists of pine and strong grapefruit flavor with floral notes. Lavender seemed to be layered in there somewhere deep. Mouthfeel was somewhat light with a moderate carbonation that led to an uncanny smoothness. Dry finish with slight bitterness. Well done all around.

Damn! Gold pour, white head. Dank, citrusy, juicy, perfect bitterness. Lightly grassy. Awesome beer!

Bottle poured into IPA glass. Aroma is citrus and pine. Taste is very smooth citrus. Pine on back end. Very good pale ale. Another great beer from Maine.
