Bottle at Chriso Tasting, London. Many thanks to ChrisO! Pours perfectly clear gold with a large, white foam head. Fresh citrus nose, somewhat juicy, lots of melon and orange. Light to medium sweet flavor with dry citrus and pine needles. Light to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Clean finish with some dry citrus, dry pine. Great balance.

This is one of the best IPAs I have had. It isn’t a huge hop-monster like many of the crazy IPA/DIPA beers that so many geeks fawn over - it is clean, crisp, and balanced. Just the right amount of citrus and dry bitterness and pine resin to it. Not to mention that it looks beautiful in the glass. I think that this is what the quintessential American IPA is, right here.

Bottle: pour is murky gold with an average fine bubbled white head. The nose is resinous, piney, floral hops. Tropical notes are present as well. The flavor profile is juicy fruit, caramel, tropicals, with some piney bitterness and florals present, as well as mineral water. This brew is nice, albeit mild mannered. It’s a nice drinker

Pint .9 into a stemmed NOHO 25th anniversary vast glass. Pours a beautiful orange, gold, tan, hazel brown meshed color with a sunshine background. Head is large the rising as the brew is poured. Almost invites you exclusively for the journey ahead. Aroma is fantastic, with wondrefully blended citrus, pine, and hops all seemingly to be super fresh. Taste is sweet at first, hoppy next, a tad bitter, then hoppy and organic thoughout. Such an excellent ipa here, def worth the 7.95 I ponied up for this. After taste is sweet, hoppy and inviting, with the mouthfeel medium and distinctivly fresh. This is such a well balanced ipa, so appealing to the pallate, it can not be put down! Love Maine beer.

Elle est blonde dorée, coiffée d’une mousse dense et persistante, qui dessine des motifs artistiques aux parois du verre. Le nez est tout en houblon, très floral, fruité, par le pamplemousse rose, de conifères, de façon très distinctive et ce, sans jamais dépasser les limites. La bouche joue dans les même cordes. Elle possède le meilleur d’une IPA, très bien dosée. Une belle et agréable amertume reste sur la langue sans qu’on se sente agressé. Comme si chaque élément est sa place, elle occupe l’espace comme il se doit. Elle est bien ronde. Une orchestration quasi parfaite (C81012-09) (421-231012)

Bottle. 8/9/12. This IPA is dead on. Huge grapefruit and citrus aroma. Pours a beautiful orange with a thick white head. Flavor is bright and vibrant with tons of lemon zest and pine. Finish is soft and clean. All around very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy orange topped off by an impressive, tight and foamy white head. The aroma is absolutely heavenly. Rich juicy tropical fruits, resinous pine, and a malty sweetness are balanced so, so nicely. I didn’t think the taste could top the aroma, but it excitingly does. The first sip is a smack in the face full of grapefruit with floral and pine notes. It has a subtle malt backbone that never overshadows the hops. The finish is dry, leaving a tingly bitterness on the tongue. This is a world-class IPA that is right up there with the best of them.

Location: .5 L bottle from Half Time, 10/9/12

Aroma: The nose has lots of pine/resin, with some grapefruit/tropical fruit, and caramel notes
Appearance: This beer pours a hazed copper-orange color with a sticky, off-white head/lace
Flavor: The flavor is quite fresh and hoppy, it is light-medium sweet, and a medium-plus bitter
Palate: This one has a great, clean drinkability, a medium body, a soft carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: Obviously, I like the name, since lunch is when I do some of my best drinking! Anyway, as for the beer, this one has a great IPA nose. The pine/resin, grapefruit/tropical fruit, and caramel all work really well together. The pour is quite nice as well. The flavor is excellent, and unsurprisingly, the feel is quite good too. This one is really good, and dangerously drinkable. I couldn’t really find anything not to like. This is a heck of a beer, and one of the best new beers I’ve had in a while.
