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

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high off white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge of the glass and lots of lacing down the sides.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of mango and pineapple are present in the nose along with notes of grapefruit and hints of pine resin.
T: The taste is nearly identical to the smell; the only difference is that he grapefruit flavors are a bit stronger. There is just about a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is an excellent representation of the style. Even though it uses the same hops as Weez, it's a lot better because the lighter malt profile really allows the different hop aromas and flavors to shine through.

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.

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.

On-tap 8/1/2014 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains a nice blend of citrus, floral hops and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a fruity citrus and caramel sweetness. Then a strong hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is on the thin side for the style but it works quite well for this beer and provides a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a very good IPA to pound down for a long time.

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.

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.

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.
