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.

Bottle > Sensory Pilsner Glass

A - Clouded gold with a thick fluffy two finger marshmallow kinda head, Huge patches of lacing.
S - Amazing aroma, just like every other MBC beer. Big grape, fresh cut grass, perfectly ripe melon, lemon zest, very floral. The grape cant be overstated though.
T - This thing just takes off, loads of mixed grape flavors, bright vibrant floral and grassy notes all through it, cracker malt comes in mid through, just to give a taste, the malt is in the background in this beer, really lets the hops shine through. A little pine dankness, and some citrus zest. Super fresh tasting beer.
M - Perfect carbonation, extremely crisp and refreshing beer, no trace of the 7% by any means.
O - I personally think I like this better than Lunch. This thing is outrageous, such a bright floral and lush hop presence to this beer. MBC Does not disappoint.

Maine Beer Company round 2, entering this with lofty expectations after MO. Poured into an American pint glass, this is a cloudy dark yellow brew just grading into orange territory, with a milkshake-like creamy white head that retains form admirably. Quite light in appearance and this carries over onto the palate, where the malts are concerned. But the hops? Bold and flavorful all the way, with a tropical gummy nose of mango and papaya, along with citrus peel and slight green pine notes. Very fresh and vibrant. Taste also skews towards the tropical, but there is an assertive grapefruit/tangerine/lemon rind presence and some gooseberry and longan as well, with a smooth bitterness that builds to rather high levels, some faint onion, pepper, and pine accumulating and coupling with the malts to yield a pleasant toasted effect. Moderate body and oily smooth mouthfeel. Juicy but bitter. Finishes smoothly bitter and clean, a bit tangy and citric with minimal heat. Zoe and Weez, you are next. Fantastic brewery and with any luck we'll get the DIPA offerings here in Alberta as well.

It pours out in a hazy yellow gold color.

The aroma is just super hoppy and fresh. There’s floral, pineapple, tropical fruit, tons of sweet citrus. Its just a vibrant and big aroma.

The flavor follows on the aroma with not as much of a pronounced and obvious fruit. Clearly the Cirta is there with a light herbacious bitterness on the back.

The malt and tons of carbonation do this beer really well. I had this super fresh, only 2-3 weeks old and it really is a treat.

This is the beer to have, over Lunch. Hype goes to this one! This is a Citra bomb!

Appearance-Pours an absolutely gorgeous light golden body with a nice 2 finger foamy white head
Smell-huge pineapple and papaya notes at first than some tangerine and grapefruit
Taste-sweet papaya and tangy tangerine and bitter grapefruit at first than you get some grassy notes at the back end I cant taste any malt in this ipa it is just a straight up juicy IPA! there is some bitterness but not a lot at all just really juicy.
Mouthfeel- light to medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Very nice for an ipa

OVERALL- this beer really hits the spot and I think is one of MBC's best brews to date.. its either this or peeper for me

500ml bottle poured into tulip 12/4/14

A hazy bright yellow, lots of sediment and little yeast chunks, two fingers of foam sits around for a few sips leaving a couple thick rings

S lemon, tangerine, apricot, a little grass and yeast, pine, floral notes, I wouldn't guess they use the same hops as Weez but shes smelling pretty

T lemons more focused towards peel, not as much pine and grass, faint booze, just a faint hint of dry cereal, slightly different from the nose but equally as good

M lighter side of medium bodied, creams up quickly, not as bitter as expected, a little slick after the fact with some pine and vitamin c chewable on the finish

O no complaints with this one, I could easily drink another, not a palate wrecker but plenty of hops in a drinkable IPA

I'm loving this new addition to Alberta, Maine Brewing has gone 3 for 3 in my books

3.83/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: a golden to straw yellow color. great clarity until i dumped the yeasty dregs into my glass. a small white head that fades slowly and leaves behind a fairly strong lacing.

Smell: lots of hops, most prominent is citrus, anywhere from grapefruit to orange to lemon, small hints toward herbal, earthy and piney. light bready malt background.

Taste: opens up with citrus i'd say a cross between grapefruit and lemon. other hops such as earth and pine play in the middle. the end is a sweet lemon bread character that quickly fades to a bitterness

Mouthfeel: good balance between sweet malts and bitter hops. not overly bitter but lots of hoppiness.

Overall: a good ipa. can't say to much as i am beginning to get ipa overload. their is only so much variation on the ipa can get and i think the markets about there. still a good drinkable beer, but nothing to set itself out from the rest for me.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle dated 03 24 14.

Slightly dull and hazy golden orange color, occasional visible carb trails, creamy head that lasts a good while, leaving behind sheets of lace in the glass.

Aroma is mainly floral with some trace citrusy grapefruit elements.

Taste has a nice hop punch, equally balanced with bready pale malt. Lingering grapefruit and a slight tropical mango note that gets lost underneath a firm grassy bitterness that lingers. Light to medium bodied, easy drinking. It's good, as all Maine beers are, but not the standout from the pack that Mo and Lunch are.

Glorious, golden did float and flow!
This is a little lighter than "Lunch".
But still a fruity boquet, a wonderful presentation in the glass.
Flavor- bitter hops balanced with a hint of malt.
Mouthfeel is a vibrant presence with the flavor at the start lingering.
Overall this is a very satisfying IPA.. not so strong it's overpowering, not warped out of presepective to jack the ABV or extreme but a very well balanced form of this brew style.

The only thing I'd complain about is all of MBCo's brews are $$$.

I guess quality costs.

16 oz. bottled purchased in the greater Washington D.C. area (Franklin's Pub and Brewery), bottled on 01/25/2014, poured into my FFF Teku glass, drank over 30 minutes

A: 3/3 - golden yellow, mild clarity (cannot read or see through - bottle conditioned), initial frothy ivory white head that settles into 1/2 finger head, low-to-moderate alcohol legs

S: 9/12 - a nice admixture of floral, grassy and earthy hops, mild biscuity malts with some background alcohol

T: 15/20 - on the front of the tongue, there's a gentle citrus hop bitterness (likely Warrior) that gives way to a complex hop profile that matches the aroma - floral, herbal, grassy and citrus; in the middle of the mouth, the hop profile makes room for a bready/biscuity malt profile that serves more to balance that provide its own flavor profile; some alcohol burn on the way down but mild (and expected for a 7% ABV beer); finishes dry and inviting subsequent sips

M: 4/5 - moderate body, some hop oils coating the tongue, moderate-to-high drinkabilty

O: 8/10 - granted that this beer was several months old when purchased, but, out of all the Maine Beer Co. beers that I've tried, the only one better is Lunch, which is like a hoppier big brother to Another One; this beer can certainly stand on its own though, and, for ~$7-8, I'd recommend it but please drink it fresher than I did here!

TOTAL - 39/50

Slighty hazy golden-yellow pour, with a half inch or so of foamy white head that displayed good retention and lacing. Hops dominated the nose, earthy and pithy. Very well-rounded taste, citrus pith, pine needles, earthy undertones, with a distant bready malt base. Nothing new or exciting here, just a solid IPA overall. Crisp, dry mouthfeel, medium body, easy drinkability, with a lasting but manageable bitterness. Another nice one from MBC.

500mL bottle with a Bottled On Date of 030414. Pours a mukry yellowish, brown with an inch of head. Good amount of lacing. Nice sweet hoppy aroma of citrus. Gapefruit, orange, and maybe a hint of sweet lemon. The taste is more of that great grapefruit flavor along with some sweet orange and lemon. Light bready notes but the grapefruit is the main flavor. There is a fair amount of bitterness but the overall sweetness may take away from it a tad. Moderate alcohol presence with a creamy mouthfeel. I love grapefruit so this one speaks to me. Overall, it's a really good IPA but just like about every Maine Beer Co. brew the price is too high to justify buying it often. Still worth having at least once.

Bottled March 25, 2014. Opened April 3, 2014.

A - A stunning IPA. Thick, foamy towering white head with outrageous lace and retention. Light haze on a wheat gold body.

S - Bright citrus, pine, white bread, and wood with an edge of cilantro.

T - Mellow. Almost a pale ale to Maine's Lunch IPA. Net sweet and malt forward; bread crust, biscuit, and a touch of toffee. Bitter greens and black pepper finish.

M - Soft medium body with nice carbonation.

O - Smooth and sessionable. Drinks a lot like the session IPA's that are currently in vogue; quite an accomplishment at 7%.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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.

3.94/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a quite hazy orange color with a thick and billowy-cloudy white head. The head has a great level of retention, very slowly fading over time to leave a nice level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is big of a sweet citrus smell. The sweet citrus was a nice mix of a sweeter grapefruit aroma as well as a good showing of a tangerine sweetness. Some other lighter bready aromas were there as well with some nice smells of a tropical fruit nature of mango and pineapple mixed within. With some lighter grassy hop aromas rounding out the smell, the overall aroma ends up being quite fruity and sweet.

Taste – The taste begins much unlike the nose would have suggested. It begins very dry with a bit of a biscuit malt flavor mixed with a moderate showing of a grapefruit hop. There is a hint of a tangerine sweetness upfront that very quickly decays. Some light tastes of a grainy wheat flavor develop soon after the initial taste with some more hop flavors of a grassy nature later coming to the tongue. While this occurs so too does the biscuit transition to a more cracker like flavor, with an even drier flavor overall. With more grapefruit hop and some light herbal flavors coming to the tongue at the very end, a very crisp and dry hopped taste is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. Both are rather nice for blending the hop flavors with the moderate malt and fruit profile all while complementing well the very crisp taste of the brew.

Overall – A rather tasty, crisp, and dry, but nicely hopped and still somewhat balanced IPA. Overall a quite enjoyable brew.

Poured from 500 ml bottle into snifter. Bottle dated 3/4/2014.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow with a 2-3 finger fluffy white head. Some decent stingy lacing.

S: Big citrus on the nose. Some grapefruit, orange, lemon with a hint of pine resin and spice.

T: Very juicy citrus offset with some hop bite. Perhaps a faint herbal note.

M: Light and crisp with a slightly dry finish. Nice easy sipping beer.

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.

Picked this up as a consolation prize for not finding Lunch yet again; plus hey, it's an IPA from Maine Beer Co. and it was pretty fresh. Excited to try it.
Poured into tulip; gorgeous light straw gold, translucent and hazy with a massive fluffy white head that almost overflowed from an easy pour. Head sticks around forever too. After a while the head finally caves in, leaving a rocky landscape of chunky foam and lacing everywhere. Awesome.
Smells great; dank herbal scents mix with tropical fruit and pine/citrus rind. Delicious.
Taste follows nose...smooth clear malt gives way to a puff of harsh bitter pine and citrus rind, which is then smoothed over with mango and tangerine sweetness. This all crashes down into a sticky finish that's sweet on the lips, bitter on the palate.
Mouthfeel is crisp, well-carbonated and medium-light.
Overall, a great fresh IPA. This makes me look forward even more to one day finding Lunch. Delicious stuff!

considering I have had Maine brewing beers in the past - i was very dissappointed with this one. I xpected something much better after having "Lunch" and was completely let down. It looked great when poored but that was completely ruined by the initial taste. Smell was actually decent, but obviously a huge let down.

After tasting Maine brewing's LUNCH I had high expectations for this beer, and I have to say it was a disappointment. Solid golden thick coloration, but the mouth feel was chalking and the finish left and odd aftertaste, mild hop flavor. Small dragonfruit mid, did not match the tangelo aroma.
