look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle dated 10/20/15, today being 11/12/15. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-green-gold with a finger of dense white head that never completely goes away. Nice attractive lacing. It's a good-looking beer. I'm so used to a big piney/grapefruit initial smell on IPAs that this one took me by surprise. The first thing that hit my nose was a lovely floral scent, specifically rose petals, which I can't say I've ever encountered before. As it warms the smell becomes more tropical fruits and earthy herbs, but I still get the rose notes with the addition of lemon.

Taste is pretty extraordinary. Starts with the grapefruit plus orange, and unfolds in a complex progression of piney/fruity/earthy flavors, with a mildly bitter finish that is just slightly dry. Also in the finish is a piney, peppery herbal spiciness that's subtle but welcome.

Feel is near perfect. The beer looks thin but drinks beautifully, with excellent balance between carbonation and body. It's neither oily nor watery.

Maybe its lack of extremeness counts against it, but this is a world-class beer in my opinion, massively complex and satisfying. Personally, I like this more than Lunch.

pours a golden/yellow hazy color, head dissipates quickly but leaves a good lacing. bubbles seen floating up the glass. smell is very light but fruity, oranges, pineapples, tropical. taste follows the smell to a T, just more intense. tropical fruits, oranges, pineapples, mangos, but very crisp and dry. sweet, but not thick or sugary. carbonation is perfect, per usual with Maine Beer's bottle conditioning. great brew! not better or worse than Lunch, just different, comes down to whatever you are in the mood for.

I liked Weez a lot, but I always figured this would be more up my alley. Judging from the hazy straw color alone, it really looks promising. And it smells promising, too! This offers a great tropical fruit quality (like papaya and mango), yet it never fully sacrifices a balancing pine surge or a touch of malt (even though it's really faint at best here). The flavor easily lives up to the nose: it opens with healthy mango and papaya flavors and ends slightly bitter. As I drink more of this, some of the malt sweetness pops up, giving a nice sugar cookie character the blends with the hoppiness beautifully. And also as I drink more of this, it just seems to get better and better with each sip. It feels damn-near perfect on the palate - creamy, soft, dry, yet devoid of harsh bitterness. This might even be better than Lunch, and that's very high praise coming from yours truly.

4.41/5: Yeah, I want another one of these right now

L: Hazy gold with a full, creamy white head.
S: Soft citrus smells with a hint of tropical fruit. There is also a hint of cat pee in there, which is something I've heard other reviewers mention about beers (especially with citra) but have never really experienced.
T: Nice mellow citrus flavors--grapefruit mostly. The flavors are very delicate, which makes this a unique and special beer. The finish is a little weak and almost abrupt. You get these great taste up front and then it's cut off by an odd dryness.
F: Such a nice beer to drink. It's soft and easy on the palate. The balance is very nice, but I'd worry about this beer becoming too sweet if it wasn't extremely fresh.
O:This an outstanding IPA. I know some folks like this better than Lunch, but I don't quite think it's on that level. Nevertheless, I can't wait to drink it again.

A: This poured a clear light gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like fresh grapefruit, with a little herbal hops and honey malt.
T: It tasted like bitter grapefruit and herbal hops, with some sweet honey malt. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a nice IPA, with enjoyable but one dimensional scent and taste. The body was ok, and the finish was pretty smooth, so it was easy to drink. Nothing really special about this brew, in today's IPA market. Solid, but forgettable.

A very nice brew from Maine. Being a hophead who leans more toward the ctrus type hop flavors I found this to be nice and flavorful, but not having quite the hop punch that I typically revel in. This brew was remarkably balanced and very drinkable. Being that they are rather pricey, more than one in a great while is an expenditure I cannot reconcile. Definitely a special occasion type brew for me.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

From a bottle that has 082515 on the label, so I'm drinking this a little over three weeks after it was bottled.

Appearance: It has a very light cloudy golden body. It looks much lighter than the average IPA color. There is a good sized pure white fluffy head. Good lacing on the glass.

Aroma: It has a very nice light tangerine aroma.

Taste: Right off the bat I notice a significantly low bitterness. There is a bit of orange pith flavor and a touch of pine off in the distance. It's a fairly average tasting IPA with lower than average bitterness. No alcohol presence which is nice.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel suffers a bit from the lack of bitterness. It just feels a bit watered down and empty with an off-dry finish.

Overall: It is an average IPA that falls on the weaker side of bitterness which isn't a problem itself, but it leaves a void that is not filled. It leaves a few question marks hanging in the air without asserting any sort of unique character or obvious direction. I probably wouldn't pick it up again. I might buy it if I see it on draft but I'm not holding my breath given that this is just over three weeks old.

I probably shouldn't try to add anything to the brewer's description because it is spot on. Bottled on 08/25/2015, poured into a cool nonic, it's hazy sunshine with an honest foamy white cap and lots of sticky lacing. The smell is predominately hoppy, with pine, straw and flowers and a decent hit of sweet maltiness. Taste follows the nose with apple and mineral, as well. Lightly carbonated and resinous. A classic IPA, dry and crisp as advertised.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 500mL bottle dated 6/30/15 into a Duvel glass

Pours between a blonde and straw color, slightly cloudy with a finger of lace bubbles. Bubbles retain well keeping a thin layer for at least an hour.

Smells of citrus and a hint of papaya. Very slight pine scent as well.

Taste is very crisp citrus and very faint notes of pine. Pine flavors increase as the citrus dissipates in the after taste. Very light on malt flavors.

Feel is a good mix of juicy body with carbonation. Feels good in the mouth.

Appearance: It has a nice light golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice thick white head that dies down moderately and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of mango, citrus, pine resins, floral notes some grassiness and light bready malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has loads of tropical notes (citrus and mango), floral hops, pine resins, some grassiness and faint sweet bready malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas.

A deliciously piney and citrusy IPA. The taste follows the nose better than most IPAs out there. Better than Lunch IMHO. Seems as though this one is getting harder to find on the shelves.

Pleasantly light golden-yellow haze with a fluffy two-finger foam; head hung around for a while and then left a thin layer throughout. First sip felt like there was an intense hops carpet bombing campaign being executed against my mouth (seriously, it was pretty awesome). Smell is full of floral citrus hops. Big citrus and slight peach taste with a nice bitter finish, but the type of bitter you desire in an American IPA. Incredibly clean and fresh overall, excellent experience.

Instantly one of my favorites, can't wait to have it again!

Two plus fingers of bleached white foam, very delicately constructed and airy, uneven surface and no more than average retention, the lacing forms wide, mottled streaks which stick well before dissolving in place. Brightly yellow colored liquid, transparent, lots of active bubbles but dispersed and not in beads. The nose displays a genteel directness, focused tangerine, lemon, white grapefruit citrus neither sweet nor sour, lowkey florality yields to more peppery, biscuity, and piney notes, not especially leafy but hops dominated, the apricot, pineapple, mango fruit scents have tang and assist the general oily texture in your nostrils. Medium-bodied, remarkable smoothness given its overall dryness. Loaded with orange, tangerine and lemon citrus zest. Here the floral side spreads out further, at times comes close to being minty in addition to the piney qualities. White pepper, ginger and clove bring dimension, there’s really no overtly “sweet” element to be found. The carbonation is fine and pinpoint yet no wimp. Shows balance in a graceful, Fred Astaire like manner. Refreshing for how it does not seek to impress you with all kinds of fireworks.

Pale yellow and clean, clean, clean. Not the nose I expected but this is a top five IPA in my book. Citrus shows perfect and finish is fantastic. Best Maine Beer Co. in my opinion. Best in Maine period!

You hear a lot about lunch but this guys not trailing too far behind and is typically more available though allocations have gotten tighter of late. Grassy and herbaceous with light citrus notes dancing in the background. Perfectly carbonated and stupid easy to drink, can't believe this one clocks in at 7%.
Took me years to bite on these guys with the plain label and high price point but man is it worth it, great beer.

Another very solid offering from Maine Beer Co. This is my next favorite so far just under Lunch. Color is pale yellow with some cloudiness. Taste is light, crisp, with a perfect amount of character. A great beer to drink on hot days.

This is a spectacular IPA. Bottled 7/14/15. Tasted fresh and looked great. This was a surprise get and an even bigger surprise taste. As good as Lunch, I think. Pricey for sure, but worth it.

Pours golden and clear, with decent carbonation and a two finger head. Smells citrusy, floral, and fruity. Taste is balanced and crisp. Citrus and hops shining through. Highly drinkable with a peppery finish. Really great showing from Maine Beer Company.. this beer deserves all the credit.

Snagged a bottle in Swampscott. Don't know what it is about Maine BrewCo, but for some reason I never balk at spending too much on one of their 16.9 oz bottles. Maybe because they're all so good? I dunno.

Pours very pale and hazy, like a wheat. Smells dry and a little floral. Not nearly as heavily hopped as Lunch or Mo, but still interesting enough.

Tastes okay, but I don't know what they were going for. It's *very* light up front, almost seltzery, with floral hops drippling in near the middle. Ends light and crisp, with tangy fruit hops balanced quite well against the whisper thin malt.

Overall, it's pretty good. Hard to make such a light and balanced beer with an ABV this high. But it's still a bit of a let down for its price point.
