Our first run at an American Pale Ale. Flavors and aromas of zesty citrus, passionfruit, and pine present themselves throughout. A very subtle malt sweetness for balance, but this is intended to finish dry.

Bottle labeled 011213... 11 days old. Pours a hazy light orange/yellow with a one finger head that retains a nice film. Smell is wonderful... hoppy floral, citrus, orange, with a slight malty musk. Taste is also fantastic and doesnt disappoint. Good carbonation and medium body. My favorite from Maine Beer Co.

Maine Beer Co does it all so well. I didnt rate this when I had it in a bottle, just dont get around to typing these things up anymore. But, after grabbing a keg, its worth it. Pour is yellow full bodied and hazy unfiltered, huge head with pillowy rings lacing all the way down. Aroma of pineapples, citrus, floral. Flavor is rich citrus and tropical and resinous pine, finishing with a lightly sweet malt base, some biscuit flavors, hearty mouthfeel and nicely carbonated, just fantastic. The best pale ale Ive ever had. Not even close, starts to present itself as an IPA, and a darned great one at that too.

$7.49 bottle from Whole Foods, CHO. Whats a better medicine to fight a sore throat than beer? I suppose a stronger alcohol, but Im not going there (today). Pours only slightly hazy golden with a large, frothy off-white head. I smelled it as soon as the cap was coming off - it wasnt even off when the aroma hit me. Yummy grapefruit, peach, light pineapple in the nose. Flavor is bittersweet grapefruit, clementine, pineapple, pine, and some toasted bread in the back end. Good stuff.

500ml 08.16.16 bottle, thanks Guillaume for buying. Aroma: fruit salad of oranges, peaches tropical fruits. App: clear golden, medium white head leaving beautiful lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, great mouthfeel. Some lichis in mouth, silky (in a good way), clean moderate bitter finish. Overall: well executed. This bottle is one month old, wonder how it would be even fresher. This is made on the "old" apa style, before NE style existed. Im still surprise to see how much I like it since Im now converted to that NE style. The aroma could be a bit more fruit-in-your-face or even have some pines in it to make it a bit more strong aroma-speaking. On the end the taste is fruity enough. Great mouthfeel. Pretty good.
