On tap at Novare Res. Best beer from Marshall Wharf yet. Ace hole is mind blowing. Pours an innocent looking amber yellow. Thin quickly dissipating head. Aroma is your first hint of whatís to come...thereís a hint of sweetness and fruitiness to the aroma. Then one sip, and BAM this is an IPA made with Sorachi Ace hops. The taste is out of this world. Itís like a hoppy mango slice with awesome dusted on top. Dare I say my new favorite beer from Maine? Simply incredible.

Can at home with potato latkes. Walks the line between APA and IPA, with a light grain backbone and a citrus, spice, and light grapefruit hop profile. The main impression this gave, though, was general satisfaction -- a good, easy drinker.

Draught over the years, most recently at 3 Tides, 7/18/15
Darker copper-amber body is topped by an off-white head that shows low retention, fading to cover quickly. Clarity is high, with a very slight chill-haze.
Light orange, meyer lemon and bits of papaya and other juicy tropical fruits are faint, but pleasant, while caramel and/or crystal malts set in, adding light sweetness and stickiness. Clean yeast and no alcohol or flaws, with a good deal of bitterness but no resin. With warming, more caramel comes forth, with just a touch of buttercream and spicier, grapefruit-tinged hops.
Sweet up front, not horribly so, but with a light cherry note that is the house character of a lot of their ales. Ruby red grapefruit, melons and honey-caramel drizzled atop all are thrown about a lightly chewy body with pinches of light alcohol and a bitter, heavily grassy finish replete with more fruits (cherry, apple, orange, grapefruit). Itís fairly sweet, maybe a bit too much sharp grassiness, but otherwise the hop flavors are delicious and the chewy texture makes it much more of an IPA than pale ale. With the 6.5% abv, Iím not sure why they call it an APA, but it certainly dosent matter.

It is what it is and that is a great Am Pale Ale hopped up on Sorachi Ace and Citra. Nothing wrong. Itís an excellent representation of the unique style!

Can (thanks asheft!) - Amber beer with an off-white head. Nice citrus aroma! Flavour is bitter and crisp. Decent citrus hoppy note, some grapefruit hints. Medium carbonation.

Can from Bier Cellar Portland Deep golden color with a huge frothy white head that persists forever. The citrus and earthy tropical hop notes seem to clash a little. Decent brew, but probably nothing Iíd seek out again.

What happens when you combine my favorite hop with my least favorite hop. Well you get an average pale ale. Citrus and tropical fruits with a weird buttery chardonay characteristic. Grainy malts and drinkable but meh.

473 ml can via asheft (thanks!), served cold in a tulip glass. Clear amber with a nice orange-tan head. Rich orange, tropical fruits, sweet caramel malt, more citrus, quite nice. Medium+ body with fairly full carbonation. More juicy, fruity hops, oranges, tropical fruits, caramel maltiness; off-dry with decent bitterness and a long, fruity, caramel finish. Good stuff!

Draft in Bar Harbor. Pours cloudy golden with off-white head. Good lacing. Nose is citrus and some grain. Taste is nice and sweet with citrus. A little watery in the mouth feel.

[can from Bier Cellar] Lime and pineapple aroma with sweet base malt, faint caramel and a bit of "young" sulfur. Hazy dark copper under a persistent, lacy, bubbly blanket. Potent lime and butterscotch (Ringwood?) flavour with a touch of sulfury popcorn and a slick caramel feel that is most likely diacetyl. The combination of fermentation-derived and hops flavours are unique and refreshingly novel. Medium body, medium to high carbonation, faintly lingering bitter finish.
