HippyHop (1163) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2019 Pint bottle. Citrus/pine/grassy hops and clean grainy malt. A touch sweet and fruity up front, leading to a dry, slightly mineral finish. Solid but not really blowing my skirt up. Sledutah (9276) - Utah, USA - NOV 10, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2019 Bottle thanks to Priscilla for bringing this from Boston.
Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head, good lacing. Grassy, tropical, citrus peel, lemon.
Tasty. ChainGangGuy (5290) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2019 500ml bottle - $7.49 at Total Wine & More in Alpharetta, Georgia.
Appearance: Served up a hazed, darkened yellow-orange body with a foaming, near white head. Good lacing on the descent.
Smell: Flinty florals, powderized grapefruit. Bready and showing some minor caramelization notes in the nose. Light hint of spearmint.
Taste: Bready barley given a little lick of blonde caramel followed by a cleansing wash of spring water. Tangerine, grapefruit citrusy quality backed by stern floral tones, then a bit of earthy mint and pine. Medium bitterness. Agreeably dry on the back half and through the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation.
Overall: Well built, nicely balanced yet being appropriately hop forward for a pale ale and rather keenly drinkable. poisoneddwarf (3648) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2019 16.9 oz. Aroma of pineapple, pine, citrus peel. Pours hazy golden with a long-standing cream white head. Taste has a moderate pithy bitterness and plenty of citrus and tropical hop character, with some biscuity malt peeking through in the finish. Not quite as good as the aroma let on, but it is really tasty. Aggiebob (2564) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - AUG 29, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2019 Pale gold color with a thin white head. It has a hoppy aroma with light notes of citrus. The taste is dry.
daleharshman (1161) - Escondido, California, USA - JUL 26, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2019 500 ml bottle purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar ($7.19 after 10% discount). POURS a clear yellow-gold hue with one finger of white foam. AROMA is a bit muted but has notes of peach, honey, and some over ripe tropical fruit. FLAVOR of stone fruit (peach, apricot), tropical fruit (lilikoi), slight dank, bits of citrus peel, with some honey malt sweetness. Rather strong bitterness for an APA but well balanced as it yields to the malt sweetness at the very end. Dry and crisp leading in to a 'sharp' finish. Straightforward and seemingly old school in the current world of juicy hop endeavors. (596, 1149) tennisjoel (1768) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2019 Bottle rating. Pale gold body with a nice pillow like head. Very dry finish, kind of old school. Really solid APA. Top notch within style. Would like to get my hands on some more Maine beers. zoucrew102 (3721) - - JUN 9, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2019 500ml bottle. Grapefruit hop aroma with notes of passionfruit, caramel malt and some pine resin. Pours clear, pale golden colored with a good size off white head that has excellent retention but no lacing. Starts with zesty grapefruit citrus and caramel malt flavors. Finishes dry and smooth with passionfruit sweetness and a little bit of pine resiny hop bitterness at the end. Really nice pale. ajnepple (10831) - Colorado, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2019 Golden colored with slight haze and a beige head. Aroma of zesty hops, fresh pine, mild fruitiness and lightly toasted malts. Similar flavor, fresh, crisp and clean with mild to moderate bitterness and a light grainy sweetness. Medium to light body with a pleasant finish. Nice. MrBeerFanatic (1293) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 25, 2019
UPDATED: APR 25, 2019 Light yellow light head. Big sharp aromas of citrus, pine, slight caramel, fruity hops. Flavors mango, pine, citrus, pine slight caramel backbone. More on the ipa aside with a slight more sweetness than a usual ipa. Overall though would take this as an ipa if it wasn't labeled a pale ale. Medium sweet slight dry aftertaste. Pretty decent. The bottle date was slightly over the 90 day window, got it discounted. Still pretty good!
