COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Jjg226 (71) - Staten Island, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a thick white head that has some staying power. Lots of lacing. Very citrusy on the nose, redolent of grapefruit and tangerines. Mild sweet malt notes in background. Subtle sweetness with some citrusy hops hit the palate first followed by some bitterness. Finishes bitter, but not overly so. Malty sweetness provides the right amount of balance. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied with lots of carbonation. Overall, a well crafted, balanced Pale Ale that is almost hoppy enough to be an IPA. Another great beer from Maine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (4823) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2017
On tap at the Pour Taproom (SC). Pours with a lightly hazy amber body and a generous white head that has very good retention. Aroma: sweet and odd (but not in a bad way), with fruity and berry notes. Flavor: tropical fruit and floral notes from the hops; faint bready malts. Surprisingly sweet for style: in fact, more sweet than bitter? Mouthfeel: near medium body with soft, medium carbonation. Overall: refined and mild for style, this has a distinctive aroma and flavor.

gripweed57 (2113) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2017
500 ml bottle. Hazy medium gold color. Large rocky white head. Nice citrus hop nose hints at pine. Soft fruity, crackery malt flavor. Notes of peach, hay, pineapple, lemon and pine. Complex flavors, yet a soft silky mouthfeel. Wonderful flavor and balance. Mildly bitter, dry finish is outstanding. A truly great American Pale Ale.

Another well made Maine that just doesnt do the finer things to jump it up past 4 territory for me. Well balanced, smooth body moderate to full hopping regime.

neongolden (1521) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2017
(On tap @ Bottlecraft North Park, SD, April 4/17) Pours a lightly murky orange-gold with a big white head and lace. Aroma of lots of bright citrus, pine needles, some floral fruitiness, a little caramel malt, cereal grains, quite balanced but pretty big hop nose. Flavour is robust citrus zest mix, pine, floral tropical fruit like passion fruit or lychee, orange flesh, a little caramel and bread from the malt, resinous bitterness building in the finish, fairly rich cereals for style, lingering floral quality. Moderate bitterness overall. Medium-full body for style with fairly creamy carb. This is a pretty big APA but the malt is actually surprisingly well layered and the hop presence robust. I dont normally love this more old school approach, but its a very solid offering.

PotjeBier (3101) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2017
50 ml. bottle, bottled March 14, enjoyed April 5. Mostly clear golden yellow color. Rocky white head with good retention and lacing. Aromas: lovely citrus. Retronasal its citrussy, grainish/malty, earthy hopbitter. Moderate bitter & citrussy sour flavor. Light bodied. Finishes earthy bitter. Nice, but not the best Ive had from Maine.

meccahh69lol (153) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - MAR 15, 2017
This is a nice pale ale and the first beer overall that Ive tried from this particular brewery. Safe to say they made a good first impression. Pours cloudy with a nice golden amber color, and smells sweet and hoppy. The taste is citrusy and fresh, with a dry and short finish. Almost lemon-orangey at times. Its refreshing but has some complexity to it. Nice for drinking the night before you fly to LA for a conference and again abandon your lovely boyfriend for the weekend :(
