140. Rising Tide Daymark
Rising Tide is doing great things in Portland and I was pleased to find this at The Vault in Lewiston. Also heading over there tomorrow for a beer tasting which will include offerings from Rising Tide. This is their American Pale Ale and it is all good. Nice color; some citrus, honey and other sweet tones in the aroma. Taste is slightly sweet with a solid hop finish. Beer is smooth, easy to drink and finishes clean.
Pros: Well balanced
Alcohol Content: 5.5 ABV
IBU (Bitterness): ??

Brewers Description: Chart a new course with Daymark as your guide. We start with a classic, clean and crisp American pale ale brewed with spicy Columbus and Centennial hops. Then we accent the grain bill with rye grown on small local family farms right here in Maine and malted to our specifications at Valley Malts, an artisanal malt house. Finally we dry hop the finished beer for a bright floral aroma.
