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

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.

Poured a hazy yellow orange with a decent head that quickly dissipated. The aroma was a lot weaker than its cousin "Lunch". Faint hints of citrus and a medium hop floral smell. The taste was not as hoppy as I like, ... disappointing in fact. Slight pine flavor, some citrus, and a weak hop bite. The aftertaste was smooth but uninspiring. I will not be spending another $6.25 for a bottle of this average brew. With so many great beers available for a lot less, Maine Beer Company beers sit on the shelf at our local store for weeks.

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.

Appearance: Slight chill haze on a bright gold. Head is super bright-white and starts off pillowy and massive. Drops to a creamy clumpy wispy cap. Some splotches of lacing.

Smell: Pine and tangerine. Massively floral. A hint of peach. Loaded with citrus. Grapefruit pith and skin. Earthy with a slight hop spiciness. A nice depth of hops. Malts are light and bready. Some biscuit. Some marmalade and a bit of spearmint. Evergreen with some woody elements.

Taste: Light slightly bready malt. Some caramelized malt sweetness. Oily pine and grapefruit rind. Some backing tropical elements. A bit more earthy and dank than the nose. Some backing hop spiciness. Leafy. A bit dirty. Warming mutes everything a bit. Some watery malts. Lingering pine bitterness. Gets super floral too.

Mouthfeel: On the light side of medium. Moderate carbonation, but barely. A bit dry on the back with a smooth, but watery, start.

Overall: Not positive I'll have another.

Not the best showing from MBC. A solid IPA, but Weez was a bit more exciting overall. I'd drink it again, but not if I had to buy it.

Since when did they go to Freeport?

Hazy yellow with a hunka lumpy head. Sticky. Not shy on the nose I get sugared lemon peel and star fruit. Doesn't like taste like the hop nirvana belied by the aroma. Lemon-centric squeezed citrus juice hops and hardly any malt sweetness for structure. I like a lightly malted IPA but this is a bit much. Lacks the Maine Beer Co. resin fiesta that I love.

Hops on the nose, hop flavor on the tongue but not much bitterness. Pants on the ground, pants on the ground.

Weez is next.

Pours a slightly hazy burnt orange color with golden yellow edges and a two finger frothy, off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting cap/ring. The glass is left completely coated with soapy lacing. Great looking beer!

Dank floral hop aroma with earthy pine and resinous oils countered by sweet tropical/citrus fruit notes and a pale malt backbone. Grassy and earthy with pine sap, spruce tip and dank buds followed by grapefruit, pineapple, mango and orange peel sweetness. Subtle pale malt presence with bread, biscuit and cracker.

On the fuller end of medium with a slightly creamy texture and some tight carbonation. There's a very prominent dry, bitter hop presence that lingers over the sweeter notes, pale malt and boozy heat into a dry finish. Unfortunately, the hop profile isn't as strong or complex as the nose suggests. Lots of resinous, earthy bitterness up front but it falls off mid-palate and there's a lack of citrus/tropical fruit sweetness balancing things out. The malt presence is stronger than expected with strong biscuit and graham cracker flavor. This beer is only 7% but there's a lot of alcohol in the finish. Not really any heat, but there's a lot of boozy sweetness.

Overall, this was a decent beer but the hop flavor is a bit weak and one dimensional. There's also something slightly off about the mouthfeel. It looks and smells really good but the flavor doesn't like up to expectation.

I poured this beer from a 500mL bottle as I have only seen Maine Beer Company's beer come in these bottles.

The appearance was more of a golden orange color. I poured this beer in a tulip glass and it produced what I'd say a three finger head, very big head.

The aroma was very pungent but awesome as well. It smells of fresh oranges and hops.

The taste upfront is an orange character with big blasts of citrus. At the middle of the mouth is where you start to get the hops coming in. The hops taste very smooth with little to no bitterness.

Overall, this is more of a summer beer. Light with big citrus notes. But it is also very good. My only disappointment is that I prefer my IPAs to be a little higher on the IBU spectrum and this is certainly not.
