3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The beer pours a hazy orange color with a couple fingers of white head.
S: Starts out with a solid aroma of citrus hops, particularly orange with a more mild grapefruit note. There is a bit of malt character to it as well. Plenty of pale malt giving a bit of bread aroma and a light sweetness.
T: The sweet malt notes are more pronounced on the palate than expected. That said, still fairly hoppy. A touch of grass to go with all the citrus fruit and citrus peel. There is a mild pine note which provides some bitterness.
M: On the lighter side of medium in body with a medium carbonation.
O: Really a solid pale ale. So far I’ve been impressed with the Maine Beer Co. offerings I’ve tried.
