BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Maine Beer Company
Maine, United States

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!

Beautiful burnt orange color with the frothiest head I have seen on a beer ..... maybe ever. The nose is straight up resiny, piney hops, along with some citrus. A West Coast IPA from a brewery as Far east as a brewery can get in the USA - nice!

The taste is dominated by the pine flavors, and the citrus is also present, and there’s a crackery malt flavor as well that fits this West Coast-style IPA perfectly. MBC rocks, IMHO.
