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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: cloudy; sediment suspended throughout the glass; an almost glowing yellow-orange coloring; with a moderately aggressive pour, got a 3 finger white heat with bigger bubbles that stuck around for a whole; moderate lacing;

S: grapefruit, pineapple, and dank pine; if they made an air freshener that smelled like this, I would buy it;

T: pineapple is predominant; grapefruit rind and mild bitterness from mid-palate through finish when sweet pineapple kicks in again;

M: light to medium bodied; moderate carbonation; crisp; dry;

O: a little different, but still a very good IPA; I really like this brewery; (609 characters)

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

Poured into a Tulip. Another solid offering from Maine. Dry, hoppy, grassy, and very smooth. Mild bitterness. Looks absolutely beautiful in the glass, with a hazy orange-yellow color, and 2 fingers of thick creamy head. Taste does not overpower you with citrusy flavors; instead, it tends to be dry and spicy. Yet, the silkiness is present and makes the beer go down well.

Edit: enjoyed more 2nd time around though still not as good as Lunch. (443 characters)

16.9 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a hazy pale yellow color with no vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Floral, grassy, tropical, citrus, resiny pine, pilsner, and pale malts.

Taste: Same as above. Lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, orange, pine, pale, and bready malts.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing, mild tingly bitterness, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.

Overall: I like this beer a lot. Another One please. (577 characters)

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

A: Bright yellow with a little yeasty haze. Soft, pure white big foam head.

S: Lemon grass first impression. Deeper inhales shows show grapefruit and a little pine.

T: Appealing citrus blend, with malt definitely held in check. Comes across as crisp and fresh, but not too low in flavors. Malt sweetness very clean. Medium mouth-feel but far from thick. Can't tell this is a 7.0% abv.

O: Probably one of the top American IPAs. Perfect balance, malt is in a supporting role to the sophisticated hop presence. Real pleasure to drink in the flavors, yet really crisp. Solid brew from a crazy solid brewery. (610 characters)

Yellow orange and hazy, bits of sediment in the pour, nice glow to this beer. Big pillowy head that settles to clouds atop the beer. Big chunky lacing. This is one pretty beer. Big citrus nose of orange, tangerine and grapefruit. Bright and juicy nose. The taste brings a wave of grapefruit and then some background notes of tangerine and orange. Malt sweetness stays out of the way on this one. Finish is bitter citrus and hints of pine with an herbal spicy ending. Overall another great beer from Maine Beer Co. Big citrus hop flavors and a bright nose make this a top tier IPA. (580 characters)

3.59/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: low sweet saltine malt aroma. Medium high tropical hop aromas: pineapple, mango, guava. Some creamy vanilla notes. No DMS, no diacetyl.

Appearance: golden with copper highlights. Slight haze ok for ipa. Thick dense head that lingers.

Flavor: low neutral malt aroma that leaves the hops to come to the forefront. Hop flavor is less tropical than aroma. It is blend of fruit and earthy tones. Bitterness is not over the top and very balanced. No DMS, no diacetyl.

Mouthfeel: medium body with medium low carbonation. Bitterness is low in the finish. Light creaminess.

Overalll: nice ipa that showcases the hop bill well but does need a bit of malt complexity to make it great. (688 characters)

1 pint 0.9 fl oz. bottle, with bottled on date 05/06/2014 printed on the label. So this is some pretty fresh beer right here, considering the source was from Maine. My fourth beer from Maine Beer Company. Expectations are good based on this beer's high ratings.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a bright juicy yellow-orange colored body, not too much unlike the Maine Beer Company MO I just drank. Just under three fingers of sudsy rocky white foamy head that leaves behind nice thin strands of lacing. Looks very nice.

S - The smell is mostly comprised of bitter hop character - grapefruit, pine, orange. Dank and herbal. Some bready honeyed malt and some earthy yeast character to round things off.

T - The taste follows the nose - bitter, fruity, and juicy. Grapefruit, pine, orange, citrus rinds. Dry bready malt.

M - Feel is crisp, clean, smooth, and juicy. Very easy drinking considering the moderately high 7.00% abv. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation. Some grapefruit / piney hop resins clinging to the palate.

Overall, a very nice fresh juicy IPA offering from Maine Beer Company. Very glad to have gotten my hands on a fresh bottle of this stuff, as it really shines when drank as intended. Definitely recommended drinking.

Poured from bottle into a Jester King goblet.

A: Light golden straw with a fluffy white head that eventually fades, leaving a nice lacing around the crown of the glass.

S: Grapefruit, orange, pine, grass.

T: I'm getting bready malt first, followed by the citrusy hop character in the middle. Pine is apparent in the finish.

M: Light to medium body, almost spritzy, refreshing carbonation makes this an easy drinker. Not as smooth as Lunch, but enjoyable in it's own way.

O: Though nowhere near as enjoyable as Lunch, Another One is still another great offering from Maine Brewing. I wouldn't seek this one out again to drink at home, but would definitely order it with a meal if I saw it while out and about. (713 characters)

IMO, it's better than Lunch. Great hop character, really light on the palate. This is really good beer for the pale ale lover. I love the haze when I poured it in to my Teku; great golden with a little orange in color. The hops bitter bite hits you first... In a good way. I'll be drinking this again really soon. (313 characters)

16.9oz bottle poured into IPA glass. Date on the bottle prints 05/06/2014. Golden-yellow in color with a pretty big frothy head that slowly reduces to a thin layer. Lacing is quite sticky and adheres generously to the sides of the glass. Aromatic bouquet of multiple types of citrus with grapefruit taking a front row seat. Tastes of grapefruit, other citrus, and the hops have a real nice bite on the tongue. Smooth, quite hoppy, and the palate is coated well. I enjoyed indulging Another One and can't wait to pick up another one. Another hit by the Maine Beer Company! (571 characters)

A: Very light for an ipa. Pale yellow color with a big thick head that fades slowly and great lacing
S: One of the better smelling. Lots of citrus and some serious pine/resin.
T: Very good and right with the nose. Lots of citrus fruits upfront maybe even a bit of pineapple followed by some piney after taste very good, very clean, sweeter then most, and super easy to drink
M: Very good again feels nicely balanced maybe a bit stickiness too it. But come on its damn good

Maine beers are damn good, and this is a unique ipa with some sweet pineapple taste. (558 characters)

500ml bottle (bottled 5-6-14...3 wks ago) poured into a Bruery tulip.

A - Pours a very pale straw gold in color with good clarity. A thick 2 finger cap of fluffy white foam instantly rises during the pour and caps the beer for a solid couple of minutes before slowly falling to the surface. Lots of sticky lacing on the glass. Good looking beer.

S - Super strong with resiny pine - almost like concentrated pine extract...quite sweaty also. Plenty of citrus too...slightly grassy too. I also get a faint herbal, almost mint-like quality too. I get a faint caramelly malt underneath the hops that is unexpected, very faint yeasty/bready malt character too.

T - Super sweaty citrus flavor - maybe the sweatiest beer I've ever had - grapefruit and then some in the flavor profile . Sticky, resiny pine behind that, still at a high intensity. Full hop bitterness with a strength that holds up well next to the hop flavors. Malt is delicate and soft, but still there...enough to show itself, although just barely. Hops really dominate from beginning to end.

M - Lightish to medium in body, mid-level carbonation. Nice, strong bitterness...tons of hop resins make this sticky. Rather dry on the palate with only marginal malt character coming it warms the malt comes out a bit more really only making things better by smoothing out the flavors a bit.

O - Very good IPA. Hop profile isn't exactly to my liking, but still good. Intensely flavored IPA that really satisfies quite nicely. Another winner from MBC. (1,518 characters)

Pours a hazy golden color. Nice fluffy head that lingers thru most of the beer. Grapefruit dominates the smells in a great way. Some pine as well but mainly fresh citrus. Taste is also quite citrusy. Juicy grapefruit hits up front and a nice soft bitterness lingers. Maine Beer Co has "Another" hit on their hands in this one. Very good. Will be heading to Maine in June and will need to stock up. (397 characters)

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint. This beer is hazy like chunky, fresh-squeezed lemonade. Only a little more golden. About a finger of head. Lovely to look at and admire. Then you realize it's beer, and you should be drinking it.

Notes of grapefruit and pine assault my nostrils. Glorious!

I could drink this all damn day. Taste matches the nose. This baby has wow factor. I said it: WOW factor. Great mouthfeel too; bubbly carbonation dancing along your taste buds.

Maine strikes again! I only wish I'd bought more than two bottles at the store yesterday. (563 characters)

Pours really hazy straw like goden in color with a big fluffy one and a half finger white head that retains nicely.

Smell has tons of juicy citrus hop aromas forward. Bright grapefruit citrus notes are the most pronounced but there is also some hints of guava and mango. Grainy Malt follows but is rather light to let the hops stand out.

Taste follow the nose and is great. Some fresh citrus hops are the first to hit he palate but fade quickly into a moderately bitter vegetal herby hop presence. Light grainy malt follows with mild sweetness to balance the hops and some light straw like notes in the finish.

Mouthfeel is good. Lots of hoppy oils and resin along with mild to moderate bitterness is balanced with mild to moderate carbonation. (747 characters)

Bottle dated 4/15/14 poured into Long Trail pint glass.

A: Very light for an IPA. Strawish, very hazy yellow. Tons of head that stays around for the entirety of the beer. Love it.

S: Citrus, lemon zest, slight pineapple and a good hint of rustic earthiness.

T: This beer delivers everything the nose promises and more. Hoppiness galore, but not insanely overpowering. Citrus and lemon dominate. Very nice caramel, biscuity malt. Unique.

M: Medium to light bodied. Very nice bitterness but not overwhelming. Different mouth feel than many other IPAs I have had in the past. Similar, but not as heavy, as Dirt Wolf.

O: Overall, this is a very, very good IPA. It should get more praise in the hop head community. Maine puts out another slam dunk with Another One. If the price was a little lower, I'd consider this an every day drinker. Very nice to enjoy on a cold night as well as on a hot, summer day on the beach. (919 characters)

A: Pale straw in color. Typical Maine Brewing with a huge pillowy head that lingers around for quite some time.

S: Alot of sour tropical fruit upfront, alot of orange/lemon peel. Small amounts of pine and straw come through.

T: Bready upfront with some sweet tropical fruit coming through. Easy to drink.

M: Perfect amount of carbonation, lightly sweet and refreshing. (372 characters)

Bottled 2/18/14

Appearance: Pours with a straw yellow color with some accents of orange. The body is completely hazzle, looks a lot like Heady. Three fingers of head on the pour which settled in to about a finger while drinking. Sticky lacing left behind at each level.

Smell: Tons of soft tropical fruits on the front, the calling card of Citra. Straw and prairie grass pop up on the body. A underlying pine and saturated citrus aroma really makes the brighter tones pop. Orange peel with a touch of caramel sweet malt rounds it out.

Taste: Soft caramel malt front greets the drinker with soft tropical fruits starting on the front and continue to grow into the body. Mangos, dried apricots, grapefruit, and pepper are potent on the body. Piney hop notes pick up on the back end and linger long after drinking.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation is bright which suits this brew very well. Bitterness makes itself known on the palate but is balanced and well done.

Overall: I was a little weary of trying this brew due to the bottle date but I am very glad I did. This is some seriously great stuff and a touch fresher would probably take this to the next level. (1,158 characters)

I first had AO in the summer of 2014. Since then, something has changed for the worst. This new version of AO might as well be Peeper (it tastes, looks, smells, and feels identical). Hopefully I can bump up this rating when I reevaluate it in the future. (254 characters)

No surprise, another hit from Maine Brewing. Very lively, citrus nose; I get oranges. A bit lighter coloring than what I would expect from an IPA, and the head was relatively thin and dissipated very quickly. There was moderate lacing left over. Perfect carbonation, medium body, citrus up front balanced perfectly on the back end by the hops. This is a very easy drinking IPA. If I could buy more than one (when it is even available), I could easily see myself having a session with Another One. (496 characters)

Kenwood Liquor – Homer Glen

Another One is sunrise orange when poured and glows with a golden hue around the edges when backlit. A soft haze runs throughout the body. The head is a sight to behold like all other Maine beer. Two fingers of foam form on the pour before slowly receding to one and leaving craggy peaks and low valleys in its wake. Lace clings to the glass in sheets. 100% coverage. Handsome.

The nose is a veritable hop showcase. Citrus is in your face immediately with candied orange and grapefruit peel. Pith plays its role as well. Tropical notes weave in and out, mostly lactic pineapple and peppery mango. The backside brings along a strong resinous quality, dank and nearly musty, earthy and potent. Even pine needles are present. This whole showcase sits atop crackery, sugar cookie malt. Very nice indeed.

The flavor profile is much the same. Sweet citrus hits up front with the candied peel before a wave of bright pith washes it away. Citra seems to be most noticeable mid palate with the tropical notes; pineapple and mango again. Sugar cookie sweetness, very pale, kicks in with the Citra before being washed away by the resinous hop presence on the finish. Pine needles sprinkled in for good measure. Good complexity.

A moderate body works well with the active, small bubbled carbonation. It’s effervescent and refreshing making the drinkability sky high. The finish dries out rather quickly with a bitterness that eventually grows to moderate. Thumbs up.

Another One has a pale malt base that’s simply there for a little sugar. If Maine could just feed you a hop salad they’d do it and it wouldn’t taste much different than this. This beer really is a great showcase of the spectrum of flavor you can pull from different varietals. It’s juicy and bright. Behind Lunch Another One is my favorite Maine offering. Drink it up. (1,880 characters)

Aged lemon yellow cloudy pour. Brilliant generous white head and sticky spider lacing all over.

At first the aroma is very citrusy and then opens up to introduce pineapple, guava and all other island fruits. Graham cracker malts and a tincture of tartness.

Taste is very bright and uplifting. Tropical fruit melded well with the hops that just slather the top of the tongue. I'm digging this pineappley taste and really overall the way the tropical fruit blend is concocted. Malts make this syrupy sweet with the fruit. Letting this sit it develops depth of sugars.

Light to medium bodied. Mouth is coated well with residual sugars. Carbonation not strong enough to scrub the tongue but in this case let the sugars sit, it only adds to the hop bittering experience.

Well crafted IPA. MBC is all their own but this is reminding me of Sixpoint Resin and Dirtwolf. Hop delivered and loved. This 7% feels good. Serious brew for the hop head in search of Another One. (966 characters)

4.21/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Pale pastel yellow in color. Mostly clear with just the slightest haze. Forms a large, fluffy and relatively stable head. Excellent retention and copies amounts of lacing.

S: Well the aroma is a bit hard to get to at first as the large, fluffy and stable head prevents it from leaving the beer. When it does finally begin to show, there is a pleasant sweet tropical smell. Sweet orange, orange blossom, mango, and papaya.

T: Taste is much like the aroma, but much more pungent. There is a light candy-like sweetness, like candied kumquats. Ripe, juicy tropical flavors. Mango, papaya and a lighter version of that syrup they put in the can of mandarin oranges. There is a slight alcoholic quality on the back end.

M: On the lighter side of medium. Actually quite light for the style. Mild bitterness. Appropriate carbonation.

O: A bit light to be considered an IPA. More of an APA in my opinion, though maybe the ABV is pushing it into the IPA range. A damn fine beer none-the-less. (993 characters)

Appearance- Pours a hazy, pale straw colour with three fingers of foamy white head.

Smell - Citrus hops, passionfruit, guava, sweet aroma of caramel or honey.

Taste - Bitter hops with notes of citrus, passionfruit, guava and caramel. Clean cut bitterness from start to finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall - Another winner from Maine Beer Company. This IPA is not a palate wrecker by any means, but still a solid IPA with all the right elements in place. Hop lovers won't be disappointed with this one. (538 characters)
