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.

4.07/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Straw yellow to gold in color. Slightly cloudy, but translucent. Huge off-white
creamy head that dies down leaving a thick uneven coating of foam on the surface of the beer
and lots of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Delicious hoppy. slightly malty and slightly citrus aroma. Made you want to drink the
beer.

Taste: Intensively hoppy, slightly citrus/acidic, with a very dry finish. Nice flavor, though a
little too hoppy and much too dry for my personal tastes.

Feel: Light to Medium body. Very light carbonation. Dry finish that left me wanting a glass
of water.

Overall: Very nice IPA. A little too hoppy and too dry compared to some other excellent IPAs in
my opinion. I would definitely drink again, though it is not the first IPA I would grab on
the shelf. (808 characters)

Bottle shared by myself last night.

Pours a bright yellow, with some orange-ish tinges, a half inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells quite tropical and fruity, a big dose of citrusy hops, a little bit of pine.

The taste is very similar- big hints of grapefruit, some orange, peach, and mango, with a little bit of pine. It's your standard issue big citrus blast IPA. That doesn't mean it's not delicious, though.

This one has a fairly light body, almost cloud-like in feeling, with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very drinkable.

Another winner from MBC, they really know their way around a hop. (611 characters)

Purchased at the brewery a week ago. Bottled 9/2/14 so less than 2 weeks old.
Pours a golden color into my tulip. Thick chewy head. Nice pine and citrus hop aroma. Taste is smooth malt, fruity hops, and a nice wheaty flavor.
Smooth, flavorful, and very drinkable...easy. Overall, a fantastic delicate subtle but big IPA. (329 characters)

3.98/5  rDev -6.1%

The nose on this one really runs the gambit in terms of citrus notes. Everything from mandarin oranges all the way through to grapefruit rind. The nose itself would score a 5.
The flavor would come in somewhere around a 3.75. This does not develop quite as dynamic as the nose does. Incredibly drinkable and a solid IPA once again by Maine Brewing. As of yet I have had 4 beers from these guys and they can do no wrong. (426 characters)

16.9oz bottle received via a trade with ShroudOfDoom. My first beer from this brewery. According to the label, this was bottled on July 29, 2014, part of Batch # 14 (at least I assume that’s what the second 14 means).

Poured into a Jones Radiator mug, this was a hazy, lemony shade of gold, with a big, creamy and fluffy off-white head that hung around for a while and left lots of lace on the sides of the glass. Clearly unfiltered, it lacks the clarity many like to see in their beers, but it still looks great.

Very citrusy in the nose. At heart, I’m what I think of as a PNW IPA traditionalist, in that I normally think of an IPA as being piney and citrusy - in that order. Having said that, this smells delicious. The citrusy hops certainly stand out, but there’s more bitter and piney scents present as well, but at a lesser amplitude. Smells very well balanced.

I was right about the balance. The upfront taste is of citrusy, grapefruity hops, but it’s not a one-trick pony, with elements of pineapple present in just the right amount (enough to be identified but not dominating the taste),pine sap (I’ve never consumed pine sap, mind you, it just makes me think of that) and peppery spices. There’s just enough of a malt backbone that keeps things properly balanced. In a word…yummy.

Medium bodied, maybe a touch heavier than medium, with a richly oily mouthfeel.

I’d never even heard of this brewery before, and I’m so glad it was included for what was ostensibly a trade for Oak Horizontal. A great beer. Thank You Nathan! (1,557 characters)

03/22/14 From bottle a Home. This is my kind of IPA. Thick creamy head. Pale as a pilsner, full bodied as a Belgian, very little lingering bitterness & a perfect balance in flavor. It doesn't get much better than this. (219 characters)

4.25/5  rDev +0.2%

Bottled 7/29/14 Poured from the 16 oz. bottle into a Tree House tulip pint.

a; Nearly clear dark golds with an inch tall white head which receded to rocky surface foam and dense lacing. Last pour is hazy and slightly lighter colored due to the bottle conditioning yeast.

sL Pretty intense citrus/pine resin..

t: Citrus and pine up front with a moderate hop kick, over a medium buscuit malt base. Resin becomes more prominent as it warms. Slight petroleum note developes now and then.

m: Medium, good body, plenty of carbonation tingle.

o: A tasty IPA, as good as or better than most DIPAS of similar malt and hop profiles, Which is to say, very good, but at $7.50 per 17 ounces, overpriced in comparison to comparable competition. (740 characters)

Poured into a Sam Adams glass.

Possibly one of the nicest looking pours I've ever seen. Pale yellow, hazy and frosty looking, gorgeous head with incredible lacing.

The aroma is strong when the beer is first popped. Then it fades after pour. Difficult to tease out anything too complex. Some generic melony smell.

The flavor is really great. It has a sweetness to it, kind of like a fruit salad. Nice melon in the flavor as well. The finish is super dry, yet has a sickness to it that leaves the flavors lingering.

I am a huge Maine Beer Co fan. This one gets tons of hype but it's not at the top of their lineup in my opinion. Still, and really nice IPA that's worth seeking out if you can get it. (704 characters)

Wow this is good. My first Maine Beer and I'm very impressed.

This beer has a beautiful golden yellow and slightly cloudy appearance with a white head. Sticky lacing and the head lingers for the whole brew.

Smell hits you strongly as you pour with pine, citrus, and dank herby hops.

Taste is incredibly balanced. Bitter hops, bready malt and a slightly sweet finish. The hops range from floral and citrus to pine and dank earthy goodness.

This is better than just about any Pale Ale out there. Gives Zombie Dust a run for its money. (541 characters)

Is there such a thing as a damn near perfect IPA? Yes there is, it's name is Another One!
This brew pours nice Orange body with a tight white fizzy head. Looks amazing! Now for the old sniff test. Huge hit of citric hops with an undertone of tropical fruits. Deep in the left corner is the Resinous earth aroma that I really enjoy. It's like smelling hops out of the bag. The malts are light on the aroma slightly crackerish. Time to taste! The taste is like the aroma. Very citric (grapefruit and orange pith) with a nice dose of pineapples and a clean resinous hop bite. Nice dry and not too bitter finish. The aftertaste is where all the initial hop flavors combine and slap your brain into a hop frenzy. The feel on the beer is very light carbonation is on the money.

Overall: I'm so glad I can always have some what access to this brew. It's like Gandhi Bot's little brother that has the same attitude. I could drink this beer everyday. While I can not grab Gandhi, I grab this. Yeah, this brew is recommended! (1,019 characters)

Bottle Date: 7/29- tonight is 8/10. Quite fresh!

Poured a light golden color in a Spiegalgau glass with a 4F head.

Excellent aroma: tropical fruit, vanilla, and some barnyard rankness similar to the Weez which is brewed with the same hops.

Mouth feel is very carbonated.

The taste is excellent- tropical fruit which transitions well to the spicy, hoppy finish with a taste of orange.

Overall: the hoppiest beer I have tasted from Maine Beer Company- and my favorite. Drink fresh! (486 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured a hazy light brass hue with a one and a half finger frothy white head. There was very good retention and sticky lacing.

The smell featured a medley of grapefruit, tropical fruit and white pepper.

The taste was likewise layered with complimentary hop varietals, yielding balmy citrus and pineapple. A late bite cleaned up the flavor and a grainy malt supported it all very well.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a superior IPA. (452 characters)

Bottle dated 6.24.14 poured into a Sam Adams glass

Pour as a hazy, golden amber. Steady stream of carbonations is visible when I hold it up to the light. Two finger white foam head settles to a solid layer of frothy foam with very good lacings.

I can smell citrus and grapefruit on the pour and from a distance! Aromas of citrus, grapefruit and pine . Smells great

Taste is citrus and pine hops on the tip of the tongue. Slight bitter aftertaste

Smooth, well balanced. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry finish.

This is a very nice IPA. Gives off a great aroma and a god iPa taste. Try it. (598 characters)

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. (800 characters)

From the well-labelled bottle into the MBC ale glass.

A: Glowing yellow with slight haze. Nice carbonation and lacing. Head compacts from 1 finger to a solid semi-rocky 4mm disk. no legs.

S: Malt is lighter two row variety to my crude schnozola. Pine, grapefruit, heady with resin. Some of the finest tropical and malt blends I have ever smelled.

T: Follows the nose with great grapefruit and pine resin. Very nice sip and balanced, mellow.

M: Velvety and smooth, light carbo lends to lighter mouthfeel. Impeccably dry finish with light malted wafer balance with resiny breath.

O: Crazy good. Wish I had this more available. A must try. (642 characters)

Enjoyed out of a brown 500 mL bottle with a bottling date of 06/03/14 stamped on the side of the label and instructions to pour carefully due to the fine layer of yeast on the bottom of the bottle. Poured into a Speigelau IPA-specific glass, so while my first pour was careful, the glass wouldn't fit all of the bottle. But rather than throw away the final 3-4 oz of a bottle this pricey, I dealt with the fact that my second pour was going to unavoidably have yeast in suspension.

Appearance - initial pour yields a mostly translucent body with just a slight haze, school bus yellow in color and pretty uniform in hue throughout. Just the slightest hints of tangelo highlights right on the edge of the glass. Atop the body sits a towering three finger head that is nice and tight, with just a few larger bubbles that give a Swiss cheese impression once they burst. Color of the foam is just slightly off-white, and it retains quite well, leaving swaths of camouflage netting lace around the sides of the glass as I drink it down.

Smell - This is a very nice blend of fruit aromas and some pretty formidable floral profiles as well. On the fruitier side, both tropical and citrus are represented, and in a very nice, balanced way--pineapple and grapefruit both seem to burst through. But after the initial wave, there is an excellent floral aroma that gives it sort of a nectar-like sweetness to the nose. Really quite enticing, and as the massive head begins to fade, the citrus comes through even more.

Taste - Sadly, the taste doesn't impart quite the kaleidoscope of different profiles as the aroma did, as now the citrus is a light brighter and more overpowering than it was on the nose. The floral notes are still there, but seem more of a supporting role to the fruit than they were when smelling the beer. There is a new element that I don't remember from the aroma--a more herbal aspect, almost like basil or even garlic, but not pungent and overpowering like you might expect from that particular herb. More of a deftly light touch with the aromatic allium vegetable. In a weird way, its uniqueness compensates for the faded floral element.

Mouthfeel - Medium-to-light bodied and moderate carbonation, with a bright, juicy note on the palate.

Overall, yet another great offering from Maine. This is the fifth beer I've had from them and I've yet to have one that I wouldn't be delighted to drink if it was easier to get. Unfortunately, the difficulty of access and price point aren't awesome, but it's clear that they make beer of a high enough caliber to have the prerogative to charge a premium. (2,612 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Pours very cloudy bright yellow color with yeast sediment floating in it and active carbonation racing up to a 2 finger foamy white head that was full of bubbles; the head faded very slowly, leaving really good foamy lacing and rings as it went down.

Smells of fresh grapefruit up front, with lemon zest, tangerine, citrus hops, pine, fresh fruit, biscuit, grass, floral notes; very airy and fresh smelling with delicious citrus notes similar to rubbing a citrus fruit peel on your nose: overall very pleasant to inhale.

Tastes like it smells but with a tad more malt backbone showing and some caramel. Flavors include grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, citrus hops, piney hops, orange peel, coriander, biscuit, grass, caramel, floral notes like dry hops and/or tea leaf, wheat crackers and mild spices. The malt balance is close to perfection and the bitterness is just relevant enough to mask the 7% ABV completely, making for an extremely fresh tasting and sessionable IPA.

Mouthfeel is medium with average carbonation and a little thickness to the brew, but the bitterness is low, the feel is slick and the drinkability is high. It went down as easy as a session IPA, but it’s a regular IPA.

I have thoroughly enjoyed every beer that I’ve tried from Maine Beer Co., so I recommend trying this as it was another tasty beer from a great brewery. (1,354 characters)

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was a large, foamy, long-lasting head. Great lacing.

S: A very sweet and enticing aroma of light fruit, hops, and some pine.

T: While the taste didn't live up to the hype of the aroma, it was still very good: A subtle amount of hops, citrus (orange, lemon), tropical fruit, pine, and malt. Sweeter than most IPAs, this is a solid flavor.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Light-bodied.

O: A well made, easy to drink IPA. Very much drinkable. (557 characters)

A: Poured into an IPA glass from a six day old bottle. Very cloudy as no settling has occurred. Light golden color.
S: Smell is simply divine. Tangerines, lemon peel, herbs and flowers all together. Astounding.
Taste: Taste is short of the smell, still delicious, but the citrus is less noticeable. Well integrated. Perhaps too fresh? Will try in a few weeks.
M: Nice deep, medium body, no astringency. Very smooth.
O: Very nice IPA. Not the best, but not ordinary either. (472 characters)

A beautifully balanced IPA with a nice piney and herbal bitterness, some graininess, and a dry finish. It pours a little cloudy, like many of their beers, but that doesn't really affect anything. A nice white head as well that sticks around. Tastes very fresh and clean, and perhaps a tiny bit grainier than I usually like, but it's also dryer than many IPAs and that makes the grain less obtrusive. Everything works here. Excellent beer. (438 characters)

A - Translucent, light golden color with a snow white head that recedes slowly. Leaves a crown and a very sticky lacing on the sides of the glass. Typical MBC beer look.

S - Citrus forward with pine and stone fruit present. It gives off a clean aroma. There may be a tinge of alcohol on the back end, but not much. Lovely!

T - The same aromas that were listed above are present in the flavors. The ones most noticeable are: pine resin, grapefruit, light malt flavors, and orange peel. This is a delicious beer.

M - Gives off a paradox of feels as it is acidic on the palate initially and then turns dry on the finish. Frothy as the beer expands in the mouth as well. Long bitter finish. Refreshing!

O - This one is the best one they make (have not had Dinner) that I've had. I like Lunch, but this is the more complex of the bunch. I never pass up the chance to drink this beer. MBC hits "Another One". Pun intended! (920 characters)
