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!

Got in a trade

Bottle Date: 09/09/14
Opened 10/08/14
Poured into snifter.

Pours a cloudy medium-dark gold with a huge strong head that falls after settling in the glass. Good strong lacing.

Great hop nose with a very light mouthfeel. Very easy to drink and well balanced between the bitterness and hop flavors. There is a lot more bitterness on the back end between sips.

4.5/5 really glad I was able to try this Maine Beer Company has done a great job with this IPA.

Absolute perfection. My new favorite IPA, although I doubt I'll be getting this again in San Diego.
