500ml bottle 8/6/13 courtesy of lucas1801
Pours a golden color with very little haziness and thick and foamy white head which fades very slowly. Smell is floral with a little citrus and pine. Taste is not to bitter, citrus with some piney notes. Medium amount of carbonation and a touch dry. Overall it is pretty good but was lacking a little in flavor. I would definitely like to try more from this brewery.

500ml bottle poured into a globe. Bottle is three weeks old at the time of consumption.
A: Clear golden color. Two fingers of creamy white head show excellent retention. A foamy blanket of lacing covers the glass.
S: Mandarin orange, lots of mango, peach, and apricot. White grapefruit and lemon drop candy. Soft pine needle scent. Caramel and biscuit malt base.
T: Pine needles, a touch oniony, oily bitterness, resin. Toasted hemp seed. Biscuity and toasty malts. The playful and fruity depth of the aroma really doesn't translate. Pineapple, mango, and lemon candy in the background. Subtle prick of alcohol. Tropical esters. Oily and oniony hop bitterness in the finish.
M: Medium bodied. Frothy and creamy. Low prickling carbonation.
O: The aroma is great, but some of the less preferred hop flavors show up in the taste. It leans a little in the oniony/catty direction.

Bottled 080613, 3 weeks old.
A: Pours a slightly hazy gold. Big frothy and airy white head. Head fades super slowly with wonderful retention (big island of foam). Great varied lacework too.
S: Distinctive dank citra (I think) with spicy, piney simcoe. Grapefruit when swirled. Strong and fresh hop aroma. Dry crackery malt aroma?
T: Yup, lots of citra for sure up front. That spicy, resinous pine from the simcoe kicks in afterwards. Cracker malt barely surfaces with a drying effect in the finish. Lingering pine. Sticky, resinous sort of drying aftertaste.
M: Medium bodied and plain. Dry.
O: Definitely a well-attenuated IPA. Barely any malt shows up, and what malt there is feels like it's sucking moisture out of your mouth like a bunch of saltines. Nice bold and complex hop flavor and aroma. It's no Lunch but it's still quite good. Very tasty and drinkable. Nice work, MBC.

500ml Bottle received in trade with Rejtable - thanks!
Appearance - Slightly hazy gold colour with an average size off white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Malts, hops, resin, apricots, grapefruit
Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and resiny hops. There is also some apricots, lemon, and grapefruit.
Overall - Wow, up there scent wise with Heady/GhandiBot/Pliny or any of the IPAs from HF. Just needs a touch more sweetness/body to be truly amazing. Still a very very good beer that is worth seeking out. My first beer from this brewer and I am looking forward to trying others from their lineup.

Bottled August 6, 2013
The beer is cloudy orange in colour, with a moderately-sized white head. Good retention, nice lacing.
Nose contains bright citrus fruit. Orange, lemon, grapefruit. Some pine and weedy notes. Minimal malt presence.
Nice flavour. Hops are not surprisingly the focus. Citrus fruit is dominant, with grapefruit, lemon and orange all notable. As the beer warms a bit, I start to get pine flavours as well. I thought it might have been Nelson Sauvin, but it must have been Simcoe. Moderately bitter. Some bready malts for balance.
Medium bodied, strongly carbonated. I would like the carbonation toned down a little, but it is a nice feel. Oily.
Overall, a very good IPA. Not up to the level of Lunch, but still immensely enjoyable. After a string of good beers from this brewery, here is 'Another One'.

A-Pours a cloudy straw color. Big, doughy head. The head retains mightily. Lots of lacing left from the rising-bread cap.
S-Wow. A tropical punch bowl of pureed fruits. Pineapple, melon, mango and peach. Lighter notes of clementine and grass. Piney too. With a soft bready maltiness.
T-The flavor is interesting. A medley of tropical fruits tossed into a blender. Peach, pineapple and oranges all in one hop smoothie. Biscuit malt comes out more here. The flavor is deceptively bitter. This is right in my IPA wheelhouse; juicy, tropical fruit everywhere.
M-Soft bubbles. Dry and the bitterness is set perfectly. Very drinkable with a nice, chewy body.
O/D-Another hoppy Maine Beer gem. Not sure where it sits compared to their other great beers. I love all the highly hopped MBC brews and this one fits right into the lineup and isn't overshadowed.

Poured from the bottle to a tree house snifter. Smell is nice and earthy. Pours with a nice 2 finger head, great retention and lacing. Taste is very nice, bitter but not overly so. Definitely a more piney IPA instead of the citrusy Lunch. I might even lie this a tad better than Lunch, but that's just personal preference. Not sure if they'll continue to brew this, but definitely seek it out!

Pours cloudy gold with a big foam head and big chunky lace rings. Decent rim of retention. Structure is wonderful. I nursed this and this held a skim of foam for almost an hour.
Some floral hoppy notes, but surprise--- this one is malt forward. Pine and citric notes in the first instance, then some medium toasted malt, some brad, some grain, and a hint of fruit. Then the pure bitterness asserts itself. Alcohol pops up but is not overly obvious. Bitter bite right at the finish.
Medium body, some tingle on the tongue.
Nice nice beer. Great flavor and structure. Pretty and tasty.

Cracked open a 16.9 ounce bomber brewed on 8/6/2013 and poured into an aptly sized pint glass. Nice two-finger head that lingered for quite a while. The smell instantly reminded me of Juniper and when I say Juniper I really mean Gin. I haven't noticed anyone else mention it but it was the most peculiar part of the pour. I was amazed at how easy it is to drink, it doesn't have the complexity of Lunch but it's near perfect for what it is. I'd drink it daily if I didn't have to trade a child to get it. Cheers.
