COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With a bright malt body and bold notes of citrus and pine from the hop blend including citra and simcoe, this hoppy American ale is the perfect accompaniment to summer in Maine.

From a can, purchased in Portland, July 2014, near Allagash brewery. Nice hazy yellow color. Tall head initially that fades, the opaque color reminds me of an ungespundet keller bier. Lots of of citrus hopes in both the flavor and aroma, but a light palate that makes this highly drinkable; and certainly sessionable, as they claim. Bright malt and bright hops is an apt description of this beer.

Pretty pale straw pour with white head. Aroma is of lemony citra and floral hops. Some white grapefruit. Nice soft cracker like malt with a bunch of lemony citrusy hops. Mouthfeel is soft and full but body is light. Very little bitterness. Bright, full of flavor, super drinkable. I really like this pale ale approach to hoppy session beers. Instead of the discordant light watery body and big bitter hops, they keep it all light but with a lot left to enjoy. Easily my favorite thing Rising Tide has done. Awesome summer beer.

Can brought to OH by friends of our local shop.. Pours clear yellow, lots of bubbly carbonation and dense white ring. Nose- fresh green, citrus hop aroma, pine, fruity pineapple notes. Flavors of citrus hops, mild bitterness and a little thin. Crisp and clean, not Go To but a solid session ipa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft sample at the brewery. Clear yellow. Clean citrus and grassy hops on the taste and aroma. Amazing hop flavor with a resinous finish for a light session ipa. Super clean and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank on tap (16 oz) at Three Penny Taproom in Montpelier (VT) on August 20, 2014. Light gold, small head. Light citrusy green hop aroma. Hoppy herbs and grapefruit taste, bone dry, very dry bitterness. Solid dry pale ale!

Tall boy, this beer lifts. Big hoppy light beer, no grain or booze present just a hop bomb. Love it

Big can. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of floral and citrusy and some light piney hops, some pale malts, and light dough. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness and a good balance from the light malts. Average texture. A solid pale ale.
