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.

A personal favorite, this one is worth it every time. Hazy orange with a big three finger fluffy tan head with awe inspiring retention that leaves pretty lacing all over the glass. Big juicy tropical notes with some delightful dank floral stuff. Sweet citrus a la tangerines and ripe oranges. Aftertaste is delightful. Med to light body, smooth swallow, bone dry finish that leaves that delightful juicy aftertaste.

Another beautifully done ipa from mbc; I honestly like it a bit better than lunch. Either way, this beer is worth looking out for.

Color is an awesome hazy gold - like a wheat field. Grapefruit nose, but with a little bready malt. First thing that hits the tastebuds is a citrusy grapefruit hop note, which fades slowly. The end is smooth, clean, sharp. A sweet white-bread malty taste is also present. Mouthfeel is light, but it coats the mouth nicely. Overall, really well balanced. Very tasty - and at 7.0% I could session this (for a little while).

Grabbed a bottle at Astoria Bier & Cheese, 11 days after the bottling date. Mmm, fresh beer. Reminds me of brand new Sculpin IPA and Other Half IPA, a couple favorites. There's a great balance of drier, spicy hops flavors and juicier mango and pine. The body is relatively light, but just big enough to support those awesome hops.

Notes from 1/29/15

A - Great retention and lacing. Hazy golden body.

S - Citrus and tropical fruit. Very similar to DDHFPPA, but with some hay/dried grass and a more pronounced malty backbone.

T - Follows the nose. Grapefruit and tropical fruits. Very bitter finish.

M - Full bodied with low-medium carb. Sticky finish.

Look-color is a slightly hazy gold, pours a gigantic, sticky, huge chunks of which remain for the duration, die stream of bubbles rising from the surface reinforcing the head.
Smell-tangerines, mango,pears,pine,bubble gum from the sappy pine.
Taste-lots of fruit, but the flavors are so well blended that its still subtle on the palate. Tangerines,apples,pears, hints of tropical fruit, light, bubble gum, a hint of spiciness,not quite bitter at the end, but rather earthy and floral. a biscuity malt presence balancing it all out.
Feel-Medium body, pretty creamy yet highly carbonated, and dry on the finish. very complex texture.
Overall-to me this is right up there with Lunch and Dinner as one of this breweries top beers, and just an overall outstanding and balanced IPA. Bravo.

Poured a clear, golden body with two finger head and lace ring down glass as I drank. Aroma is citric hops with touch of sweetness, whether it be grape or other fruit or touch of malt. Smooth, light bodied, real citric driven hoppy taste with balance from some fruit sweetness (malts kept minimal) and overall just a simple but well brewed IPA that is just great to relax with.

Pours a hazy golden orange color with a eggshell white head that trails the glass. The smell is full of grapefruit and pine and some sweetness on the finish, almost a toffee scent. The taste was delicious with a well balanced take between the citrus of the hop in the beginning and the sweetness of the malt being throughout. Uncomplicated, but it doesn't have to be. A very good beer by anyone's standards.

500mL bottle with a 12/16/14 date.

Nice, juicy IPA, with soft, clean finish. Very fruity, hoppy aroma. Similar to other northeast IPAs that I enjoy. Really good. I like it more than Lunch, which is more west-coast in style.

Maine Beer Co. has a solid grasp on IPAs. Excellent head and retention; super citrusy; extremely balanced; a pleasure to drink. If you like Lunch, seek this one out. You won't be disappointed. Bottled on 12/16. Nothing beats a fresh IPA.

3 week old bottle poured into my IPA glass

It pours a dark yellow straw-like color with a decent haze and a BIG 3 finger white head that just clings to the glass and never goes down. Longest head retention that I think I've seen. Smell is dank, pungent pine with some mango and crusty bread. Flavor is a little disappointing compared to the nose but by no means poor. Pungent pine and mango/grapefruit are the dominant flavors. Bready at the end as well. It's a little thin for my palette with a moderate bitterness and a clean finish.

Rock solid beer.

Pour is lightly hazed peachy yellow with a tight white head. Nose has a nice grain bill, bread crust and light dough. Hops are strong behind with a nice citrus / tropical note aroma. Taste follows suit, doughy malt with some toasted grains and a tropical hop punch behind. Extremely low bitterness making it very drinkable. Body is light and airy, a bit prickly in the finish with softer carbonation.

Tons of grapefruit and floral notes. Malt backbone is solid but light enough. Intensely hopped, and it shows. Beautiful beer, well done.

Nose offers intense citrus immediately. Palate is tremendously balanced, with fresh, piney hops and light maltiness to round out the mouthfeel. Juicy and refreshing. Not huge or intense, but a very tasty IPA.

Poured into a snifter from a bottle.

I had the opportunity to drink this side by side with Lunch, and I preferred Another One. Both are excellent. Color was a clear straw with a thick white head. Nice retention and lacing. Smell is amazing! Lots of grapefruit, orange and floral hops with some mango and pineapple. Flavor is similar to the nose, but there is a bit of a malt backbone for balance. Started off a little dry, but became quite juicy as it warmed. Very delicious and incredibly drinkable. Finish is just bitter enough to make me really want the next sip. Body is light t to medium with moderate carbonation.

Overall, this is an awesome beer. I brought this one back from my vacation and I was sad to see it go. Already dreaming about my next trip to Maine!

A great IPA. A little expensive at around $6.99 for a pint and .9 but worth it. Poured into a pint glass as a hazy dark gold color with a nicely carbonated medium size white head. Head retention is pretty good, fades to a covering of the glass. Thick bands of lacing remain on the glass throughout.

Very good aroma of grapefruit and tropical fruits (mango and pineapple). Taste is more of the same but a malty balance is noticed as well. Very good flavor, I could drink "another one" easily. Mouthfeel is rich and crisp. A moderate amount of bitterness balanced by big citrus flavor and some malt.

This is a really good IPA.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Label says 092314.

A- Pours a light amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Wonderful resinous, citrusy, piney and floral hops burst from the glass and ignite my tastebuds.

T- Powerful citrus notes such as pineapple, papaya and grapefruit. Assertive but restrained bitterness is spot-on. Nice lemony aftertaste. Incredibly drinkable.

M- Sharp but not overly so with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Better than Lunch for sure. These guys are really honing in on what makes a great IPA. I say keep 'em comin'. This one has worked its way into my top ten favorite IPAs.

Pours a hazy yellow-orange color with a thick white head. Huge tropical fruit in the nose. A little pine and citrus. Taste follows the nose. Maybe a little caramelized onion in there as well. A nice malt backbone barely makes its presence known. This "One" is all about the hops. Very dank. No alcohol whatsoever. Just very clean and extremely drinkable. Reminds me somewhat of Alpine Bine & Vine. Mouthfeel is just super crisp, maybe slightly watery, but overall a great, easy drinking brew that goes down smoothly. The bitterness isn't harsh at all nor does it overpower the aroma. Overall, a fantastic IPA. It's obvious that the east coast is putting out brews just as good as the west coast.

Look: Transparent gold with a thick white head lots of pretty pacing and carbonation.

Smell: Big piney hops with another big splash of bright peach. More piney hops with almost no malt on the nose. Smells bright and tasty!

Taste: A bright pineapple and peach greet the plate then give way to an even bigger pine followed by a slight piney butter that fades to a thin malt and a slightly bitter finish. Tasty and simple.

Mouthfeel: Light and refreshing then the bitter dries the finish and leaves pine and peach lingering on the tongue. Easy drinking.

Overall: A simple and awesome IPA that brings waves of peach and mild pine with barely any malt. Another great beer from Maine Beer Company and one I would not pass up when I see it. It hides the 7% ABV very very well and is so easy drinking.

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.
