XPA Harvest Ale, an American Pale Ale by Maritime Pacific Brewing Company.

On tap, served in 21 ounce tankard.

5.5% abv.


The pour is a clear orange body capped with a finger-thick white head.

The nose is a bit of butterscotch and caramel and viney bitterness.

The tongue is hoppy, viney bitterness and citrus peel, with butterscotch/caramel malts in the background.

The mouthfeel is thick. The flavors are crisp and clean.

This is somewhere between a pale ale and an IPA, but the fresh hops and beautiful bitterness lean it more toward IPA for me.
