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.

4.21/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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)

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

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)

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

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)

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)

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

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)

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 -15.7%
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)

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

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 thru...as 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)

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)
