look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pint on a plastic shaker at Taco Trio.

Appearance: A cloudy apricot color. Possible foreshadowing flavors to come. Minimal head. Carb hard to gauge because of cloudiness.

Aroma: Tropical fruits, hops. Mango, grapefruit.

Taste: Fruit leads. Mango, grapefruit and, yes, apricot. I had this with some mango salsa and it almost tasted more like mangoes than mangoes. Pine. Hops. Big, fruity, tasty, juicy IPA.

Mouthfeel: Some booze makes this a sipper. Prickly, hoppy. Not “crushable” but a fun beer to pair with a burrito, as I’m doing now.

Overall: Very nice big, juicy IPA. I don’t know why it took me so long to try this. Not super different from MBC’s other big guys (Lunch, for ex.), but a really good IPA.

Thank you SomethingDaver!

Opaque orange with a street lamp glow. Billowing rocky white foam like a meringue rests stubbornly above, and coats the glass as it descends.

Lots of peach and a little bit of sugar on the nose. Nothing quite like a glazed peach. I'm getting a touch of classic pine on the end, but very faint.

Still getting a good amount of peach, but the flavor definitely strides towards citrus notes. Oranges, on the sweeter side like navals, with a peel of lime. The pine decides to be a bit more present in the sappy finish.

Soft feeling even with it's higher carbonation as if it were fully saturated in it. Though it has a sweet side, overall this has the classic aspects of a bitter IPA complete with a lip smacking dirtiness to it.

Yup. 2 for 2, for me. I can see why MBC gets so much love and attention. This here is a mighty fine beer.

Thanks again, Dave.

Cheers

8/13/18...bright gold, some bronze. Medium heavy white foam. Citrus and biscuity malt. bready. Lemon backed bitter. Clean and smooth. Loads of lemon. Solid and serene.

IMHO, an average IPA, hoppy, piney, and dry, but not worthy the $8 price point for 16 ounces. No date on bottle, so it was worth a try, however, I doubt I'd revisit with the cost, especially with so many others out there that are as good, if not better...again IMHO!

Happy I tried it, but at $6.50 for essentially a single serving, I don't think I'll have again. Dated March 12, drank April 17. Very, very solid APA. Smell is a little soapy, but overall a clearly well-crafted craft beverage. As someone who doesn't quite understand the pricing strategy for Sculpins, this takes the presumptuous cake. There's better beers, and there's better beers for less $$.

This beer is phenomenal! I'm not sure if I'll fork up $8 again, but I sure want to after my first indulgence of this beer.

Look: Pours a slightly hazy golden/straw color with a frothy white head and leaves great lacing

Smell: Has a citrus and pineapple smell that's backed up by a resinous pine smell and a subtle smell of hops

Taste/Feel: Taste follows the smell pretty well. You're hit with citrus/pineapple/guava up front, with a nice resinous pine flavor and a great burst of hoppy flavors. The beer is on the dry side and has the perfect amount of bitter and bite going down

Overall, I'm glad I at least tried this beer once. I know it comes in at a high price point, but I actually think it may just warrant it. This beer was brewed near perfectly and has left me considering buying another. Just in case someone is reading and isn't familiar with the bottle size, it comes in a bottle that seems slightly bigger than a pint (maybe 19 oz?), I never actually looked to see, but don't think you're only getting 12 oz for $8.

Chill hazed gold colored ale with a tall white colored head.

Smells herbal. Scent of green cardamom. Smells wood with mostly the scent of pine board. Still for an IPA not all that aromatic.

Starts out mildly sweet and mildly bitter. Strong taste of grilled pineapple. Taste of hard water. Taste more than a little like pine.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall this is super easy to drink even if you are not an IPA fan.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottled on 12/25/18, enjoyed on 1/17/19. Straw-colored with light haze, capped with a big and fluffy head that lasts a good while. Aroma is bright and fruity. Pineapple and citrus hits the nose first. Some grassy notes follow that. Smells great, though it's not intensely aromatic.

Fairly dry, something of a classic American IPA flavor profile with noticeable citrus pith notes. This predates the current NEIPA craze, so it's not a hazy juice bomb. It's not a west-coast IPA either, as bitterness is pretty well restrained, there's just a light malt profile with moderate hop bitterness. It's pretty buttoned down overall and tastes more like a 5% APA than a 7% IPA. A very good beer, though not that good of a value given Maine's pricing.

First tried in early-2018, this is updated with a review.

Bottled on 12/25/18

Pours a cloudy golden straw with a faint translucence and a thick two fingers of fluffy white foam; spectacular head retention accompanied by thick, soapy lacing clinging almost endlessly to the glass; the structure of this just looks like a brilliant hybrid of west and east coast IPA styles.

Aromas of ripe pineapple, grapefruit, orange zest, and doused in tropical tones with soft, flaky malt in the background.

Taste shows tangerine, pineapple rind, tropical citrus, and plenty of earthy hops with a slight hint of florality; thin but firm malt backbone balanced to near perfection with dense, herbal hops.

Mouthfeel brings a lighter medium body with ample, nicely textured carbonation; juicy, somewhat creamy on the mid-palate with a well-tempered herbal hoppy bitterness and crisp, dry finish. This hits on so many elements of a near-perfect drinking experience so well; a spectacularly constructed IPA for the palate.

Exceptional balance all-around, from a profile bursting with tropical notes and a refined malt/hop harmony to a mouthfeel nearly beyond reproach; this is a pure example of drinkability in an IPA that rides a fine line between west and east coast styles, and does so incredibly well.

Bottled 8/21 so past its prime IMO. Still pours beautifully with a fluffy and sizable head that fades slowly leaving nice lacing. Nose is a little muted but there is nice citrusy notes. Taste is bitter tropical fruit. The feel is the highlight as it is perfectly bitter but not biting, soft and well carbonated. Wish I popped this one sooner but I can always get....*applies sunglasses* another one.

Solid, but not sure it lives up to the price point.

Looks fantastic with great lacing. Clean and dry, with grapefruit and hops dominating the flavor.

Just tapped at Loosa Brews, kegged 10/03/18. Taster pour.

Slightly hazy straw golden pour. Some seltzery carb rises and creates a thin head of white foam. As it settles, small patterns of lace stick to the inside of the glass.

Pretty tropical nose, predominance of pineapple, subtle overripe mango, and citrus fruit. A mild backbone of soft, piney hops balances the nose really well.

Fairly light profile, crisp and bitter with a re-emergence of light pineapple, but much more citrus. Lots of grapefruit throughout, piney hops and a lightly floral finish. Very good.

Super crushable. Light, sharp carbonation with a mildly bitter, bready finish and a light stickiness.

Christened my new BeerME pint glass from a 16.8oz bottle. A mellow, accessible NEIPA for those who need that: translucent haze; crisp, refreshing citrus. An elegant expression of the style to warm the cockles of a heart too long away from the upper right corner of the lower 48.

500mL bottle from Greenville Beer Exchange (Greenville, SC). 7.99. Bottled 6/5/18. Served in a Barrel and Barley teku. Enjoyed 6/18/18.

Pours a hazy, pale straw yellow with two and a half fingers of rocky white head. The foam shrinks to a small island, narrow band and several thin curtains of lace.

The nose bursts with bright citrusy hops. Tangerines, oranges, lemon lime and a hint of pineapple.

Pleasantly bitter citrus flavors. Orange, grapefruit, lime, pineapple and some cracker.


Medium feel with moderate carbonation. Mandarine and grapefruit in the finish

Another One is right- another delicious brew from Maine Beer Company. Fantastic work, truly delivering in every aspect. I appreciate MBC’s slow creep towards Georgia...

S - Pine hops dominate, but nice citrus aromas as well. Absolutely perfect IPA aroma

T - Grapefruit, tangerines, and orange pulp. Wow - so tasty!

F - Medium body and well carbonated. Sizzles on the tongue

O - A perfect IPA? Damn near it. Super glad that they are now shipping to GA!

Pours a hazed gold with 2+ fingers of whippy cream colored head. Clears a bit, very good lacing & head retention

S: Tangerine, , faint breadyness

T: Tangerine, grapefruit, a little bready dryness up front, not much. Picking up a little mango & pine as this warms, along with more tangerine. Tangerine, grapefruit, a little peppery hop bite along with dryness in the finish

MF: Medium body, light carbonation, nice balance

Easy drinker, doesn't floor me, but a pretty good beer, I would have to try one fresher than 7 weeks old to think it's worth the 40 cents an ounce I was charged

Slightly hazy golden color with a thick head.
Aroma with notes of mango, passion fruit, stone and red fruits.
Flavor with notes of resin, grapefruit, lots of spices (ginger, white pepper), guava, pine, caramel, green resin, tangerines, toasted grains and lemon peel. Quite dry and bitter aftertaste loaded with 70 IBUs.
Quite Intense hoppy American IPA with lots of spices, toasted and resiny flavors. It dries ones mouth completely.

Pale gold, really soapy enduring head, lively carbonation. Nose is pretty delicate with some bright, floral / citrus hop notes and some cracker malt. Taste has a light-to-medium hop resin underscored by some tangerine, nectarine and grapefruit. Finishes clean & bitter. Relies pretty have on Citra hops but well done regardless

One pint .9 FL. Oz. Bottle. 8/21/18
Opened on 8/29/18

Only the slightest haze to this golden, unfiltered appearance. Straw gold color. Jazzy bubbles due to the bottle conditioning, pitching live yeast into the bottle ! This method is one of my favorites, leading to light, crispy effect, often dry but lively mouthfeel.

The bubbles stream to the top and create a fine, silky-white foam topping that seems to never really recede due to the constant active flow from the bottom of the tulip glass. Lots 'o sticky lace streaming down.

A remarkably fresh hoppy aroma permeates into the nose. Earthy mint, green grassy, lemon-pine zest and dried wheat round out the hop aroma's. The malt is very light, golden-crisp, grass in the hot summer sun style. Wheat and light grains in the malt side.

It's kinda nice to get a complex IPA without it being like an IPA milkshake, like Soo many New England ipa's. Don't get me wrong, I love the hazy NE style, but I also enjoy a lighter feel and very crispy-dry effect too. The bottle conditioning has this IPA Jumping with vibrant hop tones. Golden grains, pine, peppery-earthy yeast and super light and crispy malt makes this thing crazy easy to drink with little in the way of the the natural and complex hop flavors. No added sugar or fruit here, just straight earthy hops.

It's nice to experience a more straight forward hop experience, compared to tropical juice complexity if the more common NE styles.

I'm a big fan of Another One and it's hoppy ways.

Lemon gold with lots of carbonation, a hint of haze, and a finger of white head.

Smells really fruity, like pineapples, jello, pine, citrus, roses and floral notes like a bouquet of flowers.

The taste totally follows the nose with all the flavours coming through to a tee.

Light body with moderate carbonation. Totally covers the ABV.

Excellent brew, so glad I found it in Redding, CA. Drinking here at the pool house AirBnb, Aug 17th, 2018.

Tasted from bottle. Pours gold with thick rocky white head. Cloudy. Aroma is lemony, tangerine, some grassy perfume notes. Very well balanced with lots of citrus flavor. Bready and caramel to balance the citrus bitterness. Lots of lemon notes. Awesome ipa.

A really well carbonated, hazy IPA that just falls short in flavor. This one just showed up locally and I bought it right away, but it drinks like this one is 5 months old. I really hope that is the case because Lunch is a master piece but this is just not that.

Beautiful, persistent lace, pale straw in color, slightly hazy, loads of tropical fruit & citrus notes, creamy mouthfeel, well balanced malt backbone and IBU. A very well made and tasty but spendy rendition of an AIPA. Like it a lot.
