So yes, I had the honor of drinking this very fresh

Lunchstarted off very hoppy, mostly piney with some subtle citrusy hop flavor. The finish is dry and the bitterness fades quickly but the taste does not - wonderfully lingering. The malts are there just enough to keep this beer perfectly balanced.

This has to be my favorite IPA after Lagunitas Sucks (which is very different as an IPA I know) I highly recommend this beer it was a real pleasure

2 week old bottle poured into a monic glass. (Though i've also had it on draught many times).

The appearance is nice, mild copper, hazy, huge head, lacing all the way down.

The aroma is very citrus-y / melon, completely my style.

Overall, nice bubbles, amazing fruity, melon, smooth taste. Just the right amount of alcohol, absolutely one of my favorites. Though, Mo and Another One may be higher in the Maine Beer Co. line.
