New England Pale Ale - 5.9%

This hazy pale ale was mashed with 2-Row barley malt and flaked wheat from Maine, with flaked oats bolstering its soft, smooth mouthfeel. Hopped extensively with Cascade, Amarillo, and Meridian, for a compelling character of tangerine citrus, with additional tropical and floral notes. Fermented with a New England-derived yeast strain, contributing pleasant stonefruit esters.

Imperial IPA - 8.0%

Enjoy responsibly, Earthlings!

ACTIVATE!

Coffee Porter - 6.4%

With Activate! we've taken a robust porter and infused it with local coffee, masterfully roasted by Jesse Medley of Union Coffee Roasters. Our black ale's rich cocoa and subtle caramel notes provide a lovely base to freshly roasted Burundi, a bourbon varietal described as tart, juicy, with fruity characters of strawberry, blackberry, apricot, lemon, and grapefruit.

LUMINARY

Cream Ale - 5.8%

A perennial favorite at the Medusa taproom, our cream ale is constructed from a blend of Maine-grown 2-row barley and German Pilsner malts. Then, true to style, the body is kept light and dry through judicious use of organic brown rice, then delicately hopped with Mandarina Bavaria for a bit of additional nuance. Delightfully refreshing in warmer weather, Luminary is nonethless profoundly crushable any time of the year!

5 oz. $2 | 13 oz. $4 | 16 oz.  $5    ♦   Growler Fills:  SOLD OUT

CITRA LEGACY

Rye IPA - 6.3%

This American-style Rye IPA delivers its one-two hop punch courtesy of a plentiful dose of Citra and Legacy hops.  Citra, of course, is renowned for its lush, tropical character of passionfruit and citrus, while Legacy supplies a lovely herbal background alongside some grapefruit and blackcurrant. A healthy addition of both malted and flaked rye adds a subtle, spicy touch.

American Pale Ale - 5.5%

This American-style Pale ale features a geographically diverse range of hops: Citra from the US, Mandarina Bavaria and Hull Melon from Germany, and Vic Secret from Australia. A New England-derived yeast strain really brings out the juiciness of these hops and accentuate the lovely notes of citrus, melon, and stonefruit.
