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!

Picked-up a single twenty-five ounce bottle at Cedarville Wine and SpiritSpiritsee for about eight dollars. I have had this beer before, and swore off of it due to the price. Having not seen it for at leat a year, I pulled the trigger. I think that this is a good, not great IPA, at an obsene price. I am baffled at how MBC stays in business. Would not drink again if dying of thirst.
