Purchased at brewery on release day and reviewed the next day. Poured from 16 oz. can into Magnify 2nd Anniversary commemorative glass. It pours a turbid, golden-straw color with two full fingers of creamy, egg-white head and extensive lacing on the glass. It features a pleasing aroma of grapefruit, sweet tropical fruit, light pine, and fragrant hops. Wow, this is delicious! It starts with sweet fruit and segues into citrus: I'm getting lime along with lemon and grapefruit. There's a noticeably hop presence but it's refined. The Citra and Simcoe complement the fruit to create a tanginess without being overly bitter. This ale has a nice creamy feel with lively carbonation, and the 6.5% ABV is hardly noticeable. Magnify sometimes tinkers with a good beer to no good end but the DDH version of Maine Event is simply outstanding!

Pours a hazy pale straw in color with a finger of white head. Aroma is subtle, indistinct tropical fruits. I get lime upfront followed by tropical fruits, a touch of pine, and a peach note comes out as the beers warms. Lightly bitter finish. Just shy of medium body with moderate carbonation. Overall a very tasty beer that became more complex over the course of a pint.

Traded for this a while ago and got around to this Double Dry Hopped version of one of my favorite beers from Magnify, on this muggy day. While this beer was pretty "typical" in every sense of the word when it came to IPA's from this neck of the woods. It was smooth, easygoing, and light on alcohol but not quite up to the level of the better beers from Bissel Brothers, Tree House, or Trillium. With that being said, it was still worthy of the two states depicted on the can!

Not a bad pour to this as the beer had a dank, melon hue to it with plenty of head to boot. Not a lot of lacing was left behind but there were a few scattered clumps of soapy residue was left along the top third of my pint glass. Tons of lime in the nose with a hop feel of Mosaic, Nelson, or Simcoe in right behind that. More citrus juice, dank melon, and lemon zest were to be found in the taste as the dankness and slickness emerged. This gave the beer depth but none of them were able to overcome the initial burst of lime that stuck with me through the end.

Thankfully, the alcohol was light and so was the carbonation. Plenty of citrus juice stuck around in the aftertaste, keeping this from being too heavy while giving it a nice kick of fruit sweetness. Not overly cloudy, this beer was a Jersey take on something from Maine or Massachusetts. A fun beer that combined the best of both worlds, from start to finish!
