BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Maine Beer Company
Maine, United States
mainebeercompany.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our “East Coast” version of a West Coast-style IPA. Intense hop flavors and aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and pine dominate. A subtle malt sweetness brings the beer into balance.

Lunch is a special whale that has been spotted off the Maine coast since 1982. She has what looks like a bite taken out of her fin, which adds to her unique character. We dedicate this beer to her determination and persistence.

Keep on swimming!

Straw to medium gold. Just a touch of haze. Huge nose lots of grapefruit. Big grapefruit and citrus flavors. Bitter but not over the top.Good mouthfeel maybe thinner than some big IPA's. Overall a great IPA.
