Yet again another fantastic beer from MBC. Someone recently described it as easy drinking like MO, but with the hop profile of dinner. I wouldn't go that far, but it is close. It appears lemony with ample white foam. It smells of a fresh flower bouquet and the taste is similar with some tropical fruit. The mouthfeel is smooth with some hoppy bitter bite. Overall, this is just fantastic and I wish I had more.

This is a wonderful lighter IPA. It is smooth, more fruity than flowery. The hops are there, but not overpowering. It comes across as a session, but the ABV says otherwise... :)

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Look: hazy, pale/straw.
Smell: Juicy tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, lemon. Pours with a large white head, falls away quickly.
Taste: Juicy, but retains a light pine.
Feel: silky, with a little resinous/astringent character. Finishes smoothly. Light mouthfeel, which I think is advantageous for this style.
O: Really enjoy this beer. Poured into oversized snifter, 7 day old bottle down here in SC. Pretty awesome. Meets my desire for a juice bomb, but keeps a nice bite/pine character. Silky feel, wonderful nose. Huge fan of this light bodied, hop forward IPA.

Bottled 7/12, poured into nonic pint. Super cloudy gold yellow, very foamy and very active with milkshake style lacing. Lemonish hoppiness scents. Hoppy and citrusy taste with slight malt notes and a very mild bitter tang in the back. Nice refreshing feel. Great beer.

Tons of tropical fruits and grass on the nose; mostly papaya. Taste is a mix of citrus and pine with some floral notes; there is a little bit of the tropical character you get on the nose but not much. Quite dry and very bitter finish. Medium body with great carbonation. Overall, very good if you like bitter beers; drinks like an old school east-coast IPA with a fruity twist.

22 oz bottle. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head, nice lacing and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and bready malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Citrusy hops, bready malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long, dry. Another great brew from MB.

My favorite Maine Beer offering (I've yet to try Dinner). Pours a beautiful golden/yellow color. Smell is intense pine. Great balance between pine, citrus and bitterness on the palate. Love it.

For as hoppy as this beer is, it lacks the punch it should have. The smell is light and it tastes the same, but at 7%abv it shouldn't taste this way. It just lacks body, doesn't taste like a fully developed beer. It's good, don't get me wrong, but it tastes like a session or pale ale. I expected a lot more from another one

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

Bottle dated June 21, poured into Lawson's tulip glass.

L: Hazy golden color. 3F head with good retention, lots of sticky lacing and a cap.

S: Light grapefruit, pineapple, and mango, pine.

T: Fairly juicy, grapefruit, lemon peel, less tropical and more citrus in the taste than nose. Light malts. Piney finish, not very bitter.

F: Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, good balance and construction, good drying on palate that doesn't allow bitterness to overlinger.

O: Really nice IPA. Clean and crisp. Interesting resemblance to Weez in the up-front. Definitely too much ABV to be sessionable, but you'll want to drink more.

Bottle to tulip. Straw colored with very little head. Almost a fresh-cut grass nose. Well balanced and tasty as all MBC brews are. Hoppy yet somehow crisp and refreshing.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter. Enjoyed a week after bottling.
Pours a nice straw color with one finger of head, excellent clarity.
Aromas are primarily lemon, with some good wet hops present.
Flavor also has lots of good lemon citrus, not sweet or juicy...very quenching here. No alcohol present.
Mouthfeel was nice for a quenching beer.
Overall, a tasty and very drinkable IPA.

Bottle dated 05/24/16

Pours super hazy golden yellow with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells like big pineapple, passionfruit, musty guava, some mango, orange and grapefruit citrus, mild biscuity cracker malt, with dank earthy grass and pine. Tastes like fresh passionfruit, pineapple, guava, underripe mango, subtle peach, orange and grapefruit citrus rind, some grainy biscuit malt, with fresh pine and dank earthy grass. Feels thick, medium bodied, creamy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really great IPA.

poured into a snifter from bottle. looks nice hazy yellow with creamy foamy head that lays for a while. nose is nice lemon. pineapple some lemon rind and floral notes. mouthfeel is medium and compliments the beer well. seems to be nothing much going on front end here. by mid to end palate I seem to be getting more intense lemon and some floral notes. overall a good beer but lacks in overall punch from start to finish. I prefer lunch tenfold. I would not seek out but would not turn down. I guess I like my ipas a little more harsh. this is easy drinking and refreshing.

The best beer I drank at the brewery (Dinner was not available). Made the 20 min out of the way drive worth while. Would definitely drink again, but all Maine Beer Co. beers are overpriced, can get better beers elsewhere for much less.

Had at Moxie in Madison on Friday night on tap. Into a pilsner-like glass it comes out a bright yellow color, very subtle haze, and a thin white head that fades fast and doesn't leave much lacing.

Pretty bright aroma, some sweet malts with a pronounced hoppiness. Flavor is cracker malts, bitter middle with a significant hop flavor. Hops are herbal, grassy, some light citrus, finishes with some oily resin. Dry finish and hints of hops and honey lead to an overall balanced beer.

Wasn't blown away by this one, I would definitely put Lunch and Mo up higher on my list. It is a very solid IPA and would work wonders in the summer heat, but not as good as some reviews here.

Very good, but immediately wished I had ordered the Wormtown Be Hoppy. This just didn't pack the flavor punch. Sure is hoppy. At $10 for a draft, expected more.

Extremely light in color, yellowish gold with ample bright white head. Excellent retention. Aroma is citrus, grass, hay, earthy. The taste follows, with bitter, resinous qualities as well. The body is medium-light with moderate-high carbonation. One of my favorite IPAs.

Yum! Maine can do no wrong.
Poured from a bottle -- just two weeks after its bottle dates. Hazy straw color, with a tinge of green (I swear). Foam settles down quickly leaving behind nice lacing. Smell is apricot and grass, signaling the flavor which expands to include a bit of biscuit and pineapple, but not the least bit sticky. Finishes with a hint of bitter, dry. Feel is light, silk, hint of carbonation. LOVE this beer.

I shouldn't be surprised by this after Dinner, but wow. I need to try all MBC offerings because this once again blew my mind. Beautiful, glowing, light haze, fluffy head. Aroma of hay and melon. Taste just levels of citrus, melon and stunning hops, puckery finish.

Not a fan of the light yellow / straw color, but the thin white head is sticky an laces up nicely. Aroma is phenomenal - citrus and tropical fruit with a hint of malt. Flavor is really nice - not a hop bomb - with a delicate bitterness that's very flavorful, again with the tropical fruits, and some resin that magically doesn't wreck the palette. Finish is fairly clean, slightly bitter. Hope I can try again on a hot summer day.

Pours light yellow with a large head with medium retention and lots of lacing. It's downhill from there as the beer has limited flavor and is thin and overcarbonated. A poor example of an ipa especially given the price.

Long awaited. Poured into a teku, very fresh.

Looks pale yellow, slight haze. A sizable foamy head with plenty of lacing that sticks.

Nose has a floral touch, citrus (pineapple, orange peels maybe). Malty with a touch of hops.

Tastes like a well balanced IPA with hints of citrus, malts, and hops.

Feel is a medium bodied beer, solid foam, fruit on the finish.

Overall it's a solid beer. Not worth the hype maybe, but I would drink again. Made some big trades for the Maine beers and this may be a little overhyped. But I enjoyed it and recommend every do it if they can.

Pours a light yellow. Not much foam on top. Smell is hard to describe - but doesn't match the slightly bitter but smooth, lightly fruity flavor. Leaves a nice lace on the glass. Definitely going to have "Another One"!

32oz growler filled at Heinen's in Mentor, Ohio

Growler poured into a tulip. Pours yellow-golden with a subtle haze and a fluffy eggshell white head that fades leaving nice retention and nice lacing. The aromas are very nice, but not overpowering. Nice blend of citrus and tropical notes. Some pineapple and mango along with grapefruit and orange. Some cracker notes and some malts as well. The flavors are clean. Lots of lemon and lime. Some watermelon in the mix. Some grapefruit and pine as well. Subtle malt notes. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium-bodied. It feels thin with active carbonation. It's smooth and very easy to drink.

This is a solid IPA. I personally just wish the flavors popped a bit more. I'm interested in how this would be from a bottle.
