Hop Program - Beer IIHop Program - Beer II
Notes: Our Hop Program is our way of always trying to move forward, especially with new hops and new hop combinations. Beer II in our Hop Program is a Session IPA featuring Amarillo, Citra, Simcoe, and Hallertau Blanc hops. It shares the same malt bill as Pilot 6 from our brewery only Pilot series, but uses these different hops.

I found this one to be pretty similar to Lawson's Super Session #2, with a hazy look and lightly fruity hops. It's a very good beer, but it didn't quite match the excellence of SS#2, and the price point will keep me from ever buying again.

I'll buy Lunch when I see it, and MO maybe once or twice a year, but other than that Maine's pricing keeps me from being a regular customer. It's a shame, because they put out some really nice beers that I would regularly consume. I just can't justify an 8-10 dollar bottle when for a few more dollars I could buy a six pack of something just as good.
