American IPA |  7.00% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
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

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, hazy, caramel-yellow coloring with a tall, frothy, chunky, bright white head of a solid inch and a half. Aromas are abundant, and you can smell this thing right off the initial pour. Wow. Very pungent with resiny hops profiles, with mango and tart citrus highlights balancing. Richly sweet and very well blended. Flavors are roasted initially, with tropical fruit sweetness forming a backbone to support a toasty, slightly char highlight and peppery, bitter hops. Hops are first and foremost in this bad boy, but there is a subtle biscuit profile throughout the brew, as well. Smooth and robust, with a dry edge from the carbonation and hops level. The aftertaste is a bitter sweet blend, with grapefruit and mango providing the sweetness to the roasted, toasted, and bitter hops. The finish is bitter and tangy at the same time, slightly drying, with a citrus linger. Solid IPA.

4.19/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Enjoyed out of a brown 500 mL bottle with a bottling date of 06/03/14 stamped on the side of the label and instructions to pour carefully due to the fine layer of yeast on the bottom of the bottle. Poured into a Speigelau IPA-specific glass, so while my first pour was careful, the glass wouldn't fit all of the bottle. But rather than throw away the final 3-4 oz of a bottle this pricey, I dealt with the fact that my second pour was going to unavoidably have yeast in suspension.

Appearance - initial pour yields a mostly translucent body with just a slight haze, school bus yellow in color and pretty uniform in hue throughout. Just the slightest hints of tangelo highlights right on the edge of the glass. Atop the body sits a towering three finger head that is nice and tight, with just a few larger bubbles that give a Swiss cheese impression once they burst. Color of the foam is just slightly off-white, and it retains quite well, leaving swaths of camouflage netting lace around the sides of the glass as I drink it down.

Smell - This is a very nice blend of fruit aromas and some pretty formidable floral profiles as well. On the fruitier side, both tropical and citrus are represented, and in a very nice, balanced way--pineapple and grapefruit both seem to burst through. But after the initial wave, there is an excellent floral aroma that gives it sort of a nectar-like sweetness to the nose. Really quite enticing, and as the massive head begins to fade, the citrus comes through even more.

Taste - Sadly, the taste doesn't impart quite the kaleidoscope of different profiles as the aroma did, as now the citrus is a light brighter and more overpowering than it was on the nose. The floral notes are still there, but seem more of a supporting role to the fruit than they were when smelling the beer. There is a new element that I don't remember from the aroma--a more herbal aspect, almost like basil or even garlic, but not pungent and overpowering like you might expect from that particular herb. More of a deftly light touch with the aromatic allium vegetable. In a weird way, its uniqueness compensates for the faded floral element.

Mouthfeel - Medium-to-light bodied and moderate carbonation, with a bright, juicy note on the palate.

Overall, yet another great offering from Maine. This is the fifth beer I've had from them and I've yet to have one that I wouldn't be delighted to drink if it was easier to get. Unfortunately, the difficulty of access and price point aren't awesome, but it's clear that they make beer of a high enough caliber to have the prerogative to charge a premium.

4.39/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Pours very cloudy bright yellow color with yeast sediment floating in it and active carbonation racing up to a 2 finger foamy white head that was full of bubbles; the head faded very slowly, leaving really good foamy lacing and rings as it went down.

Smells of fresh grapefruit up front, with lemon zest, tangerine, citrus hops, pine, fresh fruit, biscuit, grass, floral notes; very airy and fresh smelling with delicious citrus notes similar to rubbing a citrus fruit peel on your nose: overall very pleasant to inhale.

Tastes like it smells but with a tad more malt backbone showing and some caramel. Flavors include grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, citrus hops, piney hops, orange peel, coriander, biscuit, grass, caramel, floral notes like dry hops and/or tea leaf, wheat crackers and mild spices. The malt balance is close to perfection and the bitterness is just relevant enough to mask the 7% ABV completely, making for an extremely fresh tasting and sessionable IPA.

Mouthfeel is medium with average carbonation and a little thickness to the brew, but the bitterness is low, the feel is slick and the drinkability is high. It went down as easy as a session IPA, but it’s a regular IPA.

I have thoroughly enjoyed every beer that I’ve tried from Maine Beer Co., so I recommend trying this as it was another tasty beer from a great brewery.
