Smells nice and fresh and citrusy. Pretty classic golden beer looks. Clean grapefruit flavor with pleasant light hoppiness. One of the better pale ales I’ve had recently. islay (3115) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2016
16.9 oz. bottle, consumed on 9-15-16. “083016” born on date, so it’s just over two weeks old. Pours a mostly clear but slightly hazy bronze with a moderate amount of substantial, beige head. Produces good, extensive lacing. Pleasant, hoppy aroma features scents of orange and balsamic vinegar. Bitter, citric, mineral, herbal, dirt-like flavor. Thyme and lemon peel. Quite a nice pale ale. Dry, lightly bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium body. Seems substantial in the palate but nothing special. A notably good beer but not as outstanding as for what I was hoping from this very highly regarded brewery. Reads somewhere between a typical APA and IPA, although I do think it leans toward the former and is appropriately marketed and classified. A good beer but not a special one and nowhere near as good as the ratings here imply. Sudz4Dayz (164) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
500ml bottle purchased at the beverage warehouse in Winooski, VT. Not a huge aroma, pours darker orange and less hazy than the top IPA/APA’s. Citrus and pine notes with a lasting flavorful bitterness. Great American Pale Ale. Not Maine Beer Company’s best but very good nonetheless. Gluepot (756) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2016
A minimalist white head but a stupendous grapefruit, pineapple, fruit rind and sweet malt nose. The taste is significantly more understated with a nice array of hop flavours - tropical fruit such as kiwi, peaches, and orange. Solid bready sweet malt backbone. Taste falls away pretty quickly, though. Zymurgeist2 (2434) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Tap at Harry’s in San Jose. This beer seemed all very moderate in pine, citrus and tropical fruits.

On tap the brewery. Clear dark yellow pour with a white head. Tasty with tangy citrus and pine hop notes. Sturdy malt backbone. Good body and mouthfeel. oRos (1674) - sacramento, California, USA - AUG 26, 2016
On tap at Capitol beer and taproom. Pours haze copper with white head. Nice citrus aroma. Taste is crisp with a nice hop bitterness with citrus. marcus (10868) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 21, 2016
On tap at Cap Tap. Pours golden with a thick white head and a fruity aroma. There is a medium-bodied delicate pale malt flavor with a moderately bitter finish. Easy to drink and very tasty. Runenman (5) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2016 does not count
this beer has a great crisp, refreshing taste. They nailed the citrus and can smell it when you approach your glass but it has a dry finish. This is a great summer beer! jc1762 (1651) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Tap into a snifter showing bright yellow honey and half a finger of clean white foam.
The nose shows juicy notes of tropical fruit - mango, lime, passion fruit, and light kiwi.
The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Perfect balance of juicy fruit and clean malt with a barely perceivable bitterness on the finish. Same fruit flavors on the palate.
