Brew Detective: Maine Beer Co.

Lunch IPA | Freeport, ME
As soon as this beautiful bottle was popped open, stone fruit called out to me. The pour lofted up nice foam with a plus level of carbonation. Clean was the best word coming to mind to justify both the look and taste. Lunch possessed a nuance in its flavor, it was true to the hops, it's beer. There was a diverse range of bitterness, yet Lunch leans toward subtle, rather than intense. Maine Beer Company has crafted a well-balanced IPA rounded out by a bouquet of hop notes. I'm stoked this made the shelves of a local grocer. Drink Responsibly. 

"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!" 

Malts: American 2-Row, Carapils, Caramel 40L, Munich 10L, Red Wheat
