Notes/Commercial Description:
Our first Double IPA – dry, refreshing and hoppy. We really focused on hop flavor and aroma here. To maximize hop character, we dry hopped Dinner twice with over 6 lbs. of hops per barrel. For the best experience, please enjoy fresh as possible.

Pours a hazy medium amber with a thick pale white head which dissipates quickly into a thin foamy cap with light lacing. Lots of citrus, mainly grapefruit, and pine resin on the nose with hints of sweet malt and tropical fruit. Bitter on the palate with gobs of citrus hops, mostly grapefruit with a hint of orange zest. Pine resin on the finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation with a crisp, dry bitter finish. Overall an outstanding DIPA that can stand with the best of them! Great work Maine!
