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.

Thanks eagles22 for gifting me with this. 500ml bottle poured into a tulip. The brew appears a hazy pale yellow color with a big billowing white cap. Fluffy retention leaving patchy lace as it fades.

The smell includes notes of herbs and pine with citrus zest, fruit and floral appeal to almost tropical aspects as it breathes. The taste is bitter and pine with a bit of wheat. Some sulfur and earthy yeast finish with grassiness across the finish.

This is a light bodied brew with modest level of carbonation. It is clean crisp and dry finishing brew. Quite nice and worth checking out. I appreciate the cleanliness of this brew and its simplicity but it doesnt carry any wow factor that would make me want to see it out again. (730 characters)

500ml bottle. Given the child-related themes of the other Maine beers, I kind of thought that this one's name was right in line. I guess it's actually more beer-related than that - mea culpa.

This beer pours a rather cloudy, pale golden yellow hue, with three fat fingers of puffy, and mostly bubbly off-white head, which leaves some pervasive steampunk/chainlink lace around the glass as it slowly bleeds off.

It smells of sharp grapefruit, lemon, and underripe orange rind, a certain chalky flintiness, a touch of cat piss, dry pine needles, crackery (think bare saltines) pale malt, and further underdeveloped tropical fruit notes. The taste is still redolent of gritty grapefruit, orange, and lemon-lime pith, with a now stronger bready, somewhat yeasty, and still crackery pale malt backbone - i.e. not a competitor, more of a sanity check - a consistent stoniness, and leafy, piney, and kind of acrid floral hops.

The bubbles are pretty tight and edgy for the most part, the body just on the light side of medium weight, and hard to describe as smooth - the hops generally scratching out that particular aspiration. It finishes dry, dry, dry - that gritty stoniness re-appearing to bolster the still heady citrus, pine, and floral bittering hops.

Yes, this is unbalanced, yes, the malt is merely a blip on the hop bill's radar, and yes, I freaking love it! Somehow, this isn't all that much of a tongue-scraping instance of such hop-forward offerings - despite the bitter, fruity, and floral characters, there's a lulling, moderating attractiveness beyond it all. Note, I didn't say 'malt', mostly because I'm just not altogether certain that's what it is. (1,666 characters)

Bottled 06/11/2013

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium to dark golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some pale orange + apricot highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy off-white head that very slowly reduces to a medium sized finger tall cap towards the center of the beer with a thick film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of tropical fruit hops (I detect some mango and pineapple along with hint of peach) along with moderate aromas of citrus/tangerine/orange hops and just a hint of pine hops.

T: Compared with the smell, the overall flavor of this beer is less intense. Upfront there are some light flavors of biscuit malts with very light amounts of sweetness which is followed by some slightly heavier than moderate flavors of hops - tropical/pineapple/mango/peach and citrus/tangerine. Light hints of a spicy yeast and a light amount of lingering bitterness in the finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Faint hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Even though this beer has a modest ABV (7.0 %), it drinks like a session IPA in that it is really easy to drink. Very enjoyable with wonderful hop aromas and pleasant albeit a little light flavors. Pretty well balanced between the malt sweetness and hop bitterness. (1,435 characters)

Bottled 09/03/13. (same as Weez)

Despite a gentle pour it yields a huge fluffy 2 finger head that's almost as large add the pour of beer, fades slowly with lots of nice lacing, a bit hazy golden yellow color with nice bubbles streaming up.

Nose nice fresh hops, quite floral with hints of grassy, then musty hop resin, fresh tropical fruit, nice citrus, little tangerine and grapefruit pith, mild peach like stone fruit too, and even a hint of melon, light orange rind, faint hint of grainy malt and wheat.

Taste is nice too, lots of fresh hops again, little floral, nice resin, light musty, lots of tropical fruit with mild passion fruit and grapefruit pith, mild citrus little tangerine and rind bitterness, nice fruity juicy flavor like some fruit, it has an Amarillo hop character I think. Under that is a mild wheat character, little toasty and grainy malt, hint banana, but more like a kicked up gumball head. The hops turn spicy and quite bitter as it moves towards the dry finish, quite bitter grapefruit pith lingering, bit more wheat, juicy fruit hops too.

Mouth us med bod, nice fluffy carb.

Overall quite interesting, but quite as good as lunch but a different beast that is quite nice, great hops, light wheat base to juxtapose it, juicy abd drinkable with a great bitterness. (1,294 characters)

enjoyed from the 500ml with tenderbranson69 poured chilled in a tulip.

The color is lightly hazed golden with 3 fingers of eggshell head which retains well, wavy lace clings with a average sized bead. The smell is dank, fruity...juicy citrus and with lots of herbal aroma with a mild pine accent. The feel is great almost perfect with moderate bitterness and light astringency with resinous hop texture and moderately high carbonation level with a very dry yet still a bit sweetness in the finish with low alcohol influence.

The taste is great with tons of hop flavor, juicy and dank with moderate tropical elements with a nice citrus taste, lemon, and a lime-like flavor with a clementine type mild sweetness with an almost pineapple like acidity yet pretty light malt, the Hops are the star of this ale. Overall I can't think of many I would rather have - a true hop nectar and I would recommend this to anyone, not just fans of hoppy beers. (946 characters)

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. (2,058 characters)

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. (521 characters)
