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.

Hops – Warrior, Cascade, Citra, Simcoe

4.56/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

16.9oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Yeasty bits left in the bottle. Bottle says 092314 17 on the side. Brought home in luggage after a friend's vacation.

Pours mostly clear straw yellow with a medium sized white head which persists for some time. Smell made me say, "Oh wow" as I poured it. This beer smells delicious. Citrus, floral, and a little tropical primarily. This really smells nice.

Taste is surprisingly dry as compared to the juiciness I suspected from the smell. Floral and sweet citrus notes are muted; there's some dry hay, and more grapefruit rind/pine in the flavor. A little lemon, too.

Mouthfeel is crisp and dry. Overall, very good beer.

Look is clear golden with a 2 finger head when poured into a pint glass. Smell was almost all grapefruit. Taste was smooth, flavorful with grapefruit leading the way. I really liked the crisp mouthfeel, which is unusual for an IPA. This is an outstanding beer from Maine Beer Company, which seems to deliver time after time.

This beer has the perfect balance of citrus and pine. Enough bite up front with a delicious and clean citrus-pine finish. Not a fan of the pint format, but I'll still be buying many more of these.

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

This beer's color and clarity are those of burnished gold. At first, it seems to be hazy, but it reveals itself to simply appear to have more thickness as it goes closer to dark gold in its depths. The head is just barely off white, reaching a thick, heavy full finger and gradually falling to a chunky layer on top while leaving patching from the top of the glass down.
The hops are quite aromatic upon opening the bottle. This beer translates very closely from aroma to flavor. Hops take the forefront and command full attention, as promised. It's a varied mix but it blends well; no harshness or astringency, but all kinds of bitterness from mildly floral, to citrusy, both juicy and zesty with just a little pith, to that dank I come to expect from Simcoe, to a little hint of pine and a little bit more underlying fruit. Somewhere in there I get a touch of herb, and something whispers underneath that I can best describe as cucumber. There's a slight perfumey touch there, too.
Steady, soft but strong carbonation provides plenty of crispness that bites without spritzing. The body is a drier sort of medium, hops somehow coming off very strong without scraping the tongue harshly. Smoothness is pretty good as it gets flowing, and it ends juicy with a not-quite-mineral effect on the palate.

I hail from Maine, so I am biased.
Moving on, get up here while it's good! This is a local microbrewery with one of the best brew pubs I've seen. Good beer doesn't necessarily *have* to be expensive, which is an idea lost on a lot of craft breweries, this appears to be one exception. It's just damn good.

Found one bottled dated 9-23 while in CT. I gave lunch a pretty harsh review last year based on their inflated price. But I actually really liked this beer. Beautiful, cloudy light colored pour, subtle yet fantastic nose. First sip or two very dry in the finish but I soon worked through that. Overall: delicate, balanced and delicious stuff. Still not sure I'd spend $75 for twelve 16.9 ounces but this was a real treat!

bottled 9-01-14

A: soft pour so not much head but it's beautiful orange color if you follow your pour to the end you get the haze from the bottled conditioned yeast

S: this smells like you are going to be completely blown away by citrus and fruits and maybe going to get a hung if malt and it's going to be bitter

T: this beer is pure joy in a glass if you like citrus IPAs it's dry though on the finish I mean the end snaps it doesn't linger. it's fruity deep then dry and bitterish but not super bitter

M: dry Maine beer company always surprises on the tongue with their dryness it's a very light bubbly tongue feel but so dry and the older it gets dryer it gets

O: Mindboggingly good. One of the best IPAs I've ever had it crushes Lunch by a mile it just makes your mouth smile. However it falls off like crazy has to be the yeast or something because MO does as well

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

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.

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.

Had this nine days after the bottle date, so it's decidedly fresh. Pours a cloudy straw color, aroma is citrus and sweet malts. Taste is clean and crisp,mwith just a hint of bite that fades to a sweet and dry finish. Fantastic.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!
