The freedom of having favorite American craft beers over and over again is sending a tingling sensation down to the very fibers of my being that appreciate beer. It brings back fond memories, sort of like muscle memory for athletes but for American craft beer connoisseurs. The aroma, the flavor, the look, and the feel on the palate are all titillated with old repetitions and snap into shape quite quickly. Of course this is all bull shit but it makes my mouth water for the American craft beer that is on the docket for this evening.
Lunch, brewed by Maine Beer Company, is an American IPA that can confuse you from which coast this beer is brewed. Citrus and pine hops are center stage in all facets of this beer, there is an underlying sweetness that is barely noticeable, creating a ridiculously delicate balance.
I always get his beer from a transaction partner up in Maine. I am delighted each time I receive it and any of the other Maine offers. They do a solid job and you owe it to yourself to try their beer. Enjoy!
Aroma: 10 (25%), Taste: 9 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 9 (35%), Overall: 9.3
Useless Fact: A “clue” originally meant a ball of thread. This is why one is said to “unravel” the clues of a mystery.
