A: Dark gold with a touch of hazy bronze. Fast rising and sturdy white head. Thick banding.

S: Vanilla sponge cake. Lime, guava fruit. Super lemon haze.

M: Smooth almost to a fault. Thin and quick, and somewhat biting; pleasantly tart. Frequent carbonation.

T: Citrus rinds; Caribbean lime; pink grapefruit. Light hay; green pine; fresh minty aftertaste. Almond astringency. Overall rating reflects the cost/reward ratio.

A - Deep orange amber color and hazy, bright white one inch frothy head with decent lacing

S - Tropical fruit, orange, pine, orange peel, lilac and FRESH.

T - sweet pine, bitter orange spices, tangerine, fresh goodness.

M - light mouthfeel and mild carbonation lead to a nice hoppy finish

O - I love this beer. Maine Beer Co. beers just have a freshness to them IMO. Lunch is one of the best IPAs I've ever had.

Doesn't come close to the hype. Good solid IPA but nothing stands out.
