Comments:  This is the first beer I sampled from the January selection of the City Feed & Supply New England Craft Beer Share.  This American Pale Ale is the flagship of the Portland, ME  brewery.  The beer presents as a hazy, tangerine orange with lots of tiny bubbles.  The aroma is grassy and spicy.  The flavor is bitter with a tingly kick and a spicy aftertaste.  After drinking there is splotchy lacing and still a lot of bubbles with a lot of foam left behind.  This is a complex and unique beer and definitely one I’d like to try again.

My wife Susan adds that the likes the aftertaste and that the froth is kind of nice.

According to my City Feed notes, “The rye is malted by Valley Malt, a malthouse in Hadley, MA (and one of the only malthouses this side of the Mississippi River) especially for Rising Tide.”
