A - Pours a dark amber orange, with about 3 fingers of white, pinkish head. The head lasts a while, before slowly dying away. There's substantial lacing along the edge of the glass.
S - Delicious smell, lots of tropical fruits and some piney resin. Quite a smell, one that I haven't had in a while on this coast.
T - The taste is very similar to the smell in content, but it's a bit weaker than the smell. Lots of fruity hoppiness, but there's a bit of malt to balance it out in the finish.
M - Solid mouthfeel. The finish is good, and the carbonation is very pleasing.
Overall, this is another wonderful beer from Maine Beer Co. I'm a huge Zoe fan, and I now consider myself quite the Lunch fan!

Poured into a standard pint glass. Bottled on 28-Jan-2014.
Hazy golden orange. Or as my wife puts it, "dehydrated pee." Nice silky-looking head with minuscule bubbles. Definitely unfiltered (as if they were lying). Head lasts as a film on the top of the beer until the last drop.
Spicy hops. Malty sweetness. Pineapple? Citrus! No alcohol. Low esters. Non-phenolic, although some spicy phenols may be melding with the spiciness of the hops.
This beer is just the right mix of hop bitterness, dank hoppy flavor and malt. Nothing seems out of balance. Nothing even peeks its head out more at one point before or after another flavor. Smooth as glass, tasty as a mofo. My glass doesn't spend much time on the coaster.
Medium bodied, how I like my ladies. Silky, how I like their undergarments.
What needs to be said? For some beers that have garnered a strong following there's no question as to why. The balance here is incredible. The flavors are just perfect and the contributions the hops, malts and yeast make come together for a wonderful experience. If you haven't had this beer, seek it out.
