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.

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.

tectactoe (1716) - Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Can: Thanks, Ed. Clear yellow-straw body with a white head that turns quickly into a ring. Aroma of light pine, some generically fruity perfume, florals... Thereís a fruitiness I canít quite pinpoint. Taste is crisp pine, a little thin on flavor. Undertones of citrus peel, perfume, grass. No malt to be found. A touch watery, even given the style & ABV. Light bitterness throughout. Not bad at all, but many better, more readily available "low-ABV" pale ales & IPAs exist.

Pailhead (4761) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Can: The aroma consists of fruit, citrus, light grapefruit, and grass. Itís pours a transparent white-gold with a one finger white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with quick dose of citrus and faint fruit. He finish has light-moderate grapefruit with a touch of grass. Itís light bodied with moderate carbonation.

TATE (297) - Lubec, Maine, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Can. Pours cloudy and very pale with a thick white head. Big floral hop aroma and the taste is too far to the bitter balance. Body is thin and it is easy to drink. I get the point, a hoppy light beer but Iím tiring of jamming hops into APAs turning them into light IPAs. That said, hopheads who want to swill some in the heat will like this.
