Style | ABV
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

Another One is sunrise orange when poured and glows with a golden hue around the edges when backlit. A soft haze runs throughout the body. The head is a sight to behold like all other Maine beer. Two fingers of foam form on the pour before slowly receding to one and leaving craggy peaks and low valleys in its wake. Lace clings to the glass in sheets. 100% coverage. Handsome.

The nose is a veritable hop showcase. Citrus is in your face immediately with candied orange and grapefruit peel. Pith plays its role as well. Tropical notes weave in and out, mostly lactic pineapple and peppery mango. The backside brings along a strong resinous quality, dank and nearly musty, earthy and potent. Even pine needles are present. This whole showcase sits atop crackery, sugar cookie malt. Very nice indeed.

The flavor profile is much the same. Sweet citrus hits up front with the candied peel before a wave of bright pith washes it away. Citra seems to be most noticeable mid palate with the tropical notes; pineapple and mango again. Sugar cookie sweetness, very pale, kicks in with the Citra before being washed away by the resinous hop presence on the finish. Pine needles sprinkled in for good measure. Good complexity.

A moderate body works well with the active, small bubbled carbonation. It’s effervescent and refreshing making the drinkability sky high. The finish dries out rather quickly with a bitterness that eventually grows to moderate. Thumbs up.

Another One has a pale malt base that’s simply there for a little sugar. If Maine could just feed you a hop salad they’d do it and it wouldn’t taste much different than this. This beer really is a great showcase of the spectrum of flavor you can pull from different varietals. It’s juicy and bright. Behind Lunch Another One is my favorite Maine offering. Drink it up.

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.
