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

2/14/14 Bottle.

A: Pours a hazy light golden yeallow with 1 finger of fluffy white head. Very light for an IPA, and quite hazy, as MBC's beers seem to tend to be. Moderate stringy lacing is left down the side of the glass.

S: Big juicy citrus hop aroma rich with grapefruit, stone fruit, peaches, and guava. A light piney character and a hint of spice. Really nice aroma.

T/M: Light-to-medium body with moderate fine carbonation that fills the mouth. Finish is crisp with only a slight hint of drying. Clean and low in flavor up-front, the carbonation kicks in and props the beer up until the malt and hop characters step forward around mid-sip. Mid-sip is a slight piney spiciness along with a mild malt sweetness, which gives way to a swelling moderate citrus character. The finish is very lightly malty (cracker flavors) with a moderate hop bitterness that lingers. Alcohol is very well hidden.

O: I am enjoying this, but it isn't anything particularly special. The aroma of this beer is really where it shines, so be sure to have it fresh. It looks more like a pilsener than an IPA by most accounts, but the lightness really isn't a huge detractor. Everything else about it is fairly pedestrian, but nothing about it is offensive or miserable, making it an entirely enjoyable beer overall.

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.

Pours a cloudy light orange with a bubbly, pure white head that leaves some uneven lacing down the glass.
The smell is amazing! Orange juice and grapefruit hit me first, maybe a touch of lemon and a hint of grassiness.
The taste hits me with bitter up front -- orange peel and grapefruit then some actual puckering from the citrus-like effect. Then a bit of pine and spice move in followed by a long-lasting resinous dryness.
The mouthfeel is medium and quite sticky.
Overall, a wonderful, juicy IPA. Beautifully crafted.
