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!

On tap at bar into pint glass (despite recent Press Herald beer review calling for snifters).
Deep gold color. One finger head.
Smell of beer and lemon.
Crisp but not oppressive lemony hop flavor.
Pleasant sparkle on pallet. Hop aftertaste.
Very nice IPA.
