Beer added by: ToasterChef on 06-11-2013

Intensely hoppy American IPA, brewed as the light-colored counterpart to Weez (both beers incorporate the exact same kettle and dry hopping schedule). Another One has a very clean malt palate, leaving little but hoppy resins on the tongue, and finishes dry and crisp.

Hops – Warrior, Cascade, Citra, Simcoe

Drank from a 1 pint .9 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar, Portland, ME
040715
Served in a pint glass

Impressive appearance. The beer poured a super pale and nearly crystal clear golden color. An inch tall, fluffy, creamy, bright white crown topped the liquid. The head slowly dropped to a lasting cap of froth. Streaky lacing coated the glass.

The nose was crisp, bright and citrusy. Hoppy but not super aromatic for the style. Grapefruit was most noticeable. Lemony and slightly grassy. The intensity of the aroma seemed more akin to your average pale ale than an IPA. The nose did however became a bit stronger and slightly sweeter with time. A touch of tropical fruitiness appeared as well. Mango was most detectible.

The flavor profile was hoppy, bitter and completely unbalanced. Ultra crisp and dry. White grapefruit dominated. Very rind-like. Tart, lemony notes also came through strong. The snappy, lingering finish was uber dry, pithy and bitter and contained loads of pine needles and grapefruit rind.

The mouthfeel was very light and highly effervescent. Definitely quite thin for the style and somewhat over carbonated. As the beer sat, the carbonation settled a bit and the beer turned slightly softer on the palate.

While it seems that most New England/Maine-style IPAs are rich and fruity with a robust yet rounded flavor profile, Another One is a shockingly dry, pithy and bitter hop bomb in the vein of many old school, West Coast-style pale ales and IPAs. Although some might enjoy this, in my opinion it lacks both depth and balance.

Plenty of the Maine Co. beers around DC, but this was the first time I saw Another One here. Grabbed it today--bottle has a 4-7-15 date on it, so it's pretty fresh. A tad of a bitter bite on the end, but this pretty much lives up to the hype of the Maine IPAs.

Honey colored body with a large foamy, white head. Body has a slight haze to it, but light comes through. Aroma is dank, citrusy, simcoe comes through a lot, with a dash of herb. A lot more citrus comes through in the flavor than the nose. Resiny, citrusy, hoppy and tasty. Mouthfeel is crisp, light, with a lingering hoppy taste. Overall and nice IPA.

Had this beer on tap on 4/9/15
A: Pours a hazy golden orange in color with a nice, thick and foamy white head.
S: Smells phenomenal…mango, peach, pineapple…very citrusy and tropical. Some notes of pine and raisins.
T: I feel a bit disappointed as i've had it in both tap and on bottle. The taste doesn't follow the smell. It's very dull in taste and perhaps has a slight hint of citrus with a tad bit of hop bitterness.
M: Very watery with mild carbonation.
O: The smell is great, but the taste didn't do it for me. It was a big let down as i've heard about all of the glowing reviews it has received.

Bottle dated 3/10/15, poured a hazy yellow, one finger head. Smell mixed bright citrus and a mild pine/earthiness. Taste followed suit, slight bitterness, slight dankness, really delicious. MBC is a favorite and this is among their best.

Wow is this a great beer. Easy drinking IPA, that's is full of juicy flavor. Maine has done it again. Can't wait to try the 2015 Dinner.

A little lighter and less cloudy than I usually like, but what an easy-drinking beer. It is clean, flavorful and delicious. Marketing may not get its own category, but the bottle and label are so appealing that the drinking experience truly begins when you are lucky enough to spot a (fresh) Maine Beer Company product on the shelf.

A truly great IPA. Much less aggressive than comparable 7% versions like Racer 5, Two Hearted, etc. Great smells of citrus, almost light on body compared to heavier competition, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. This is dangerously drinkable at 7%. This is also the kind of IPA that non-hop fans could love. If more readily available, this would arguably become my regular IPA. Well done.

3.15.15
MBC Another One
.5L, dated 2.17.15

Pours a hazy, glowing orange, few small floaties. Wispy head laces well, retention not the greatest. (3)

Aroma is full of fruity and floral hops, with tropical notes of passion fruit, guava, stone fruits. (4.5)

Flavor is refreshing and hoppy. More citrus coming through, in addition to tropical fruits mentioned above. Restrained bitterness, grainy malt. No real caramel malt flavor, very dry and quenching. Does not drink like 7%abv, more like a pale ale. Unfiltered yeast character of proofing dough, light ester, and powdery candy. Mouthfeel is well-carbonated, but very light and almost seltzer-like on the palate. (4, 3)

Like a more tropical, even lighter version of Lunch. A very nice IPA, but could use a bit more body. (4.25)

Phenomenal all around. I havn't had a beer from MBC that missed the mark and this one continues the trend. Well balanced cereal grain taste along with the well balanced hop profile.

Pine on pine! Excellent taste. No bitterness. Curiously crushable.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy amber color with a thin white head that lingered. No lacing on the glass.

Smell: Very strong citrus/hops

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of string bitter hops with a hint of sweeter citrus notes.

Overall: One of the best IPAs I have had!

The second IPA I've had from Maine that exceeds Lunch, the first being MO. Really hard to say anything bad about Maine Brewing, they definitely have their act together. The best way to experience their ales is side by side, where I feel that you will get a strong impression of the nuances of each.

A personal favorite, this one is worth it every time. Hazy orange with a big three finger fluffy tan head with awe inspiring retention that leaves pretty lacing all over the glass. Big juicy tropical notes with some delightful dank floral stuff. Sweet citrus a la tangerines and ripe oranges. Aftertaste is delightful. Med to light body, smooth swallow, bone dry finish that leaves that delightful juicy aftertaste.

Another beautifully done ipa from mbc; I honestly like it a bit better than lunch. Either way, this beer is worth looking out for.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Color is an awesome hazy gold - like a wheat field. Grapefruit nose, but with a little bready malt. First thing that hits the tastebuds is a citrusy grapefruit hop note, which fades slowly. The end is smooth, clean, sharp. A sweet white-bread malty taste is also present. Mouthfeel is light, but it coats the mouth nicely. Overall, really well balanced. Very tasty - and at 7.0% I could session this (for a little while).

Grabbed a bottle at Astoria Bier & Cheese, 11 days after the bottling date. Mmm, fresh beer. Reminds me of brand new Sculpin IPA and Other Half IPA, a couple favorites. There's a great balance of drier, spicy hops flavors and juicier mango and pine. The body is relatively light, but just big enough to support those awesome hops.

Look-color is a slightly hazy gold, pours a gigantic, sticky, huge chunks of which remain for the duration, die stream of bubbles rising from the surface reinforcing the head.
Smell-tangerines, mango,pears,pine,bubble gum from the sappy pine.
Taste-lots of fruit, but the flavors are so well blended that its still subtle on the palate. Tangerines,apples,pears, hints of tropical fruit, light, bubble gum, a hint of spiciness,not quite bitter at the end, but rather earthy and floral. a biscuity malt presence balancing it all out.
Feel-Medium body, pretty creamy yet highly carbonated, and dry on the finish. very complex texture.
Overall-to me this is right up there with Lunch and Dinner as one of this breweries top beers, and just an overall outstanding and balanced IPA. Bravo.

Poured a clear, golden body with two finger head and lace ring down glass as I drank. Aroma is citric hops with touch of sweetness, whether it be grape or other fruit or touch of malt. Smooth, light bodied, real citric driven hoppy taste with balance from some fruit sweetness (malts kept minimal) and overall just a simple but well brewed IPA that is just great to relax with.
