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.

Yellow, hazy, with a thick, lingering white head. Medium bitterness. Lots of citrus with a nice mix of tart flavors and some sweetness. Lemon, orange, grapefruit. Great balance, refreshing.

500ml 08.16.16 bottle, thanks Guillaume for buying. Aroma: fruit salad of oranges, peaches tropical fruits. App: clear golden, medium white head leaving beautiful lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, great mouthfeel. Some lichis in mouth, silky (in a good way), clean moderate bitter finish. Overall: well executed. This bottle is one month old, wonder how it would be even fresher. This is made on the "old" apa style, before NE style existed. I’m still surprise to see how much I like it since I’m now converted to that NE style. The aroma could be a bit more fruit-in-your-face or even have some pines in it to make it a bit more strong aroma-speaking. On the end the taste is fruity enough. Great mouthfeel. Pretty good.

Smells nice and fresh and citrusy. Pretty classic golden beer looks. Clean grapefruit flavor with pleasant light hoppiness. One of the better pale ales I’ve had recently.

islay (2221) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2016
16.9 oz. bottle, consumed on 9-15-16. “083016” born on date, so it’s just over two weeks old. Pours a mostly clear but slightly hazy bronze with a moderate amount of substantial, beige head. Produces good, extensive lacing. Pleasant, hoppy aroma features scents of orange and balsamic vinegar. Bitter, citric, mineral, herbal, dirt-like flavor. Thyme and lemon peel. Quite a nice pale ale. Dry, lightly bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium body. Seems substantial in the palate but nothing special. A notably good beer but not as outstanding as for what I was hoping from this very highly regarded brewery. Reads somewhere between a typical APA and IPA, although I do think it leans toward the former and is appropriately marketed and classified. A good beer but not a special one and nowhere near as good as the ratings here imply.

Sudz4Dayz (28) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
500ml bottle purchased at the beverage warehouse in Winooski, VT. Not a huge aroma, pours darker orange and less hazy than the top IPA/APA’s. Citrus and pine notes with a lasting flavorful bitterness. Great American Pale Ale. Not Maine Beer Company’s best but very good nonetheless.

Gluepot (423) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2016
A minimalist white head but a stupendous grapefruit, pineapple, fruit rind and sweet malt nose. The taste is significantly more understated with a nice array of hop flavours - tropical fruit such as kiwi, peaches, and orange. Solid bready sweet malt backbone. Taste falls away pretty quickly, though.

Tap at Harry’s in San Jose. This beer seemed all very moderate in pine, citrus and tropical fruits.

On tap at Cap Tap. Pours golden with a thick white head and a fruity aroma. There is a medium-bodied delicate pale malt flavor with a moderately bitter finish. Easy to drink and very tasty.

this beer has a great crisp, refreshing taste. They nailed the citrus and can smell it when you approach your glass but it has a dry finish. This is a great summer beer!
