A great thanks to tectactoe. It pours a vibrant sunny orange color with a thick lasting head. A very distinct aroma comes off this. A big hop presence along with a fruity pine scent. Very unique. The taste is very similar to the smell somehow. It is extremely unique. You could pick this beer out of a crowd of IPAs. Very drinkable. Honestly I want to drink it all day. The taste is just so fresh and clean. Very good and one of the better IPAs Ive had in a long time.

Solid beer as always from Maine, but again they dont pop for me. Maybe the yeast, maybe the water? I dont know. Its a highly competent DIPA, nothing more.

Huge thanks to johnnnniee for this hard-to-get beer. In the landscape of Imperial IPAs, there are many that can be called intriguing, but only a select few can truly be described as beautiful. Maine Beer Dinner is one of those few. Yellow-orange pour with lots of haze, head, and lacing. Tropical and piney nose - bright with zest and resin. Grapefruit, pineapple, orange, melon, and tangerine flavors. Some pine, too. Lots of juicy fruit flavors yet very little bitterness. Bone dry finish. This is like an East coast Pliny the Elder. Its perfect.

HuskerTan (2077) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. A- Orange marmalade, dreamsicle bar. A- Golden orange color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Orange juice, mild bitterness, dreamsicle ice cream. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- This very well may top Pliny and Hopslam. Certainly doesnt feel like a DIPA. Drinks too easily and loaded with orange flavors. Good stuff. Had a month after bottling.Was great at Dinner with some sausage, kale, and white bean soup.

MaBeer1972 (1974) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Bottled version. Pours out a super cloudy opaque orange. Frothy off-white head becomes a thick foamy lace. Huge citrus-pine-fruit aromas. Texture is soft. Flavor is complex mix of juicy citrus, pine and tropical fruit with a hint of spice. Dry bready backbone. Very fresh.

bookman10 (1075) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Pours a very hazy, yellow-orange, not unlike fresh-squeezed orange juice. Minimal head. Aroma full of citrus and tropical fruits, with more than a little hop presence as well. Flavor is very smooth and well balanced, with citrus (grapefruit) and tropical notes, as well as some hoppy bitterness. But its not too bitter--theres a sweet finish and soft mouthfeel to the whole enterprise. Very, very good beer.

Hazy golden amber color. Mint and mandarin oranges, a bit of warming at the finish. Very dank. Medium bitterness. Just well put together. Excellent.
