very fluffy even on a careful pour, 3 fingers of soapy white foam rise up with nary a peep, it 'settles' down to a one finger level after a few minutes, golden straw in color with some particles in suspension, a rather busy metropolis of bubbles is crowding the glass haphazardly careening to the head, lacing is a bit spotty, good looking brew but nothing to send a misguided tweet about...
bright lemony hops, mild yeast and honey tones, some pine notes are slumbering around in there as well, refreshing in the nose
smooth drinking but the carbonation profile gives it a really refreshing bite, the medium light body also works into the drinkability factor here, the hops have both an earthy tone and a more stinging citrus note, not quite as lemony as some other offerings from this brewery (an observation, not a complaint), there is a hint of lemon however and also a hint of honey,
if you can find the 7% abv price of entry you are a better man than me... I think it is hidden in the little bash of bitterness in the end of the sip that fades nicely making you (forcing you) take another sip
seductive, an easy drinker, not the best thing ever but just really nice on all points.. and did I mention easy drinking ?

Huge thanks to smokeypeat for sending me this one - the guy hooks it up like no other. Another One pours the color of honey and is almost completely opaque, though the haze appears softer than typical for an unfiltered IPA. As the stark white, pillow head slowly settles, it leaves very nice rings of lacing that traverse at least half the glass.
I take a whiff and I'm very pleasantly surprised. I honestly didn't know what to expect from this beer at all, but one sniff in and I'm already liking the way things are going. Incredibly hop-centric; pines, leaves, lightly floral, and very "wet" and juicy. The beer was bottled 6/11/2013, so this sucker is only a few weeks old.
Citrus character from the hops are huge, too, with tons of grapefruit, lemon zest, and orange rind. We had this beer right before a bottle of Kuhnhenn's "TRIPA" (an amped up version of DRIPA) and the aromas were very similar. Another One was perhaps less citrusy, but also less malty-sweet and more generous in terms of hop appreciation.
An oily and pungent bitterness strikes quickly within the first moments of each sip and comes riding on the back of a big ol' flavorful hop bill. Leafy, piney, and just mildly resinous, the hops taste nearly as wet and fresh as they smelled. A slight onion-like note is appreciated and drives for more complexity in an already impressive brew.
Orange rind and grapefruit pith seem like perfect descriptors here. The fruity aspect isn't quite as soft and sweet as the aroma would make it seem, rather they head down the path of unforgiving bitterness. I've gotta say, though, it's not a bad thing at all. Very mild bready malts are noticeable in the finish, but otherwise are buried under the hop shelter.
Great finish on this, with a crisp, wet, and slick mouth feel. Medium bodied, plenty of carbonation. This was my first Maine Brewing beer, and if this is any indication of how they handle IPAs, then I need to get Lunch in my face, pronto. Very enjoyable, and according to the rating on many websites, under-appreciated in my opinion.
