Notes: 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.

Another delicious IPA from Maine.
Bright, golden yellow with a brighter white head of dense foam. Nice smatters of lace as the head recedes, a thin blanket persists.
Aroma is sharp and lemony, some hints of herbal potpourri and white bread, less pronounced than expected but clean and inspiring more sniffs.
The flavor is balanced and clean - fresh mild malt sweetness hand in hand with grass and spruce hop tang. Sweetness and mouth feel drop off the tongue leaving more tang than sugar, dryness finishing it out.
Body is on the light side of medium as this seems just a bit over attenuated. That aside this is a satisfying IPA that just seems to get better as the glass empties.

Bot. 7.28.20. Consumed 11.20.20. What me worry? It's Maine. Love the clean and eloquent label.

A: Spongey three inch head is bready white and pitted, showing a headstrong retention. A small ghost haziness on the first pour is a light tangerine tone. Spacious and slow rising of macro-bubbles rise gently within. The lacing is meaty and generous, big bready patches that stick well to the vessel walls have a long standing good visual. A second pour from the bottle brings the milky and cloudy haziness that I so enjoy.

S: Pure fresh cut and juicy grapefruit, along with sliced lemons and oranges blend beautifully on the opening nose, seamless and bright. Hints of lime mix with the spicy fresh and wet hopping providing a clean and extraordinary smoothness.

T: A flowery bite of semi-tart grapefruit and orange mixture opens the flavor, lightly dry and bitter with a big bready backing of malt. Dry hopping of floral orange peel, citrus flower along with a yeasty bite.

M: Good carbonation, milky feel weight wise, with a large bubbly feel factor. Small foaming, dry flowery and bitter coating on the tongue from the dry hopping provides a smooth gentle fade and duration.

O: Clean drinking, dry flowery and bitter hopped Ipa. You never come away disappointed by a Maine IPA. The hopping is well executed, the malting grainy, bready, and very significant to the overall experience. Crisp carbonation is sharp on the delivery, providing a high rate of enjoyment and drinkability that showcases the fine craftsmen ship that Maine produces. Another one? is that rhetorical?

Imbibed from a pint glass, on tap at a local restaurant
Look: Opaque amber with 1 finger of white head with decent retention.
Smell: Hops plus citrus
Taste: Follows the nose with plenty of hops flavor plus hints of orange and grapefruit. This is a very tasty and refreshing IPA, especially on a warm summer day. No unpleasant aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with fair amount of carbonation.
Overall: This is an excellent IPA. I was really looking forward to trying this beer when I saw it on tap at a local restaurant, and it certainly did not disappoint: Its high score on BA is definitely justified.

Poured into a Duvel glass. The 1” of foam quickly dissipated. The color is a lovely shade of yellow. Smell is somewhat non-descript.
Taste is dry, light and complex. The flavors linger on the palette for a couple of minutes. This beer is just what I have been looking for on this warm summer evening. A nice light beer with a respectable high alcohol content.

An exquisite light amber color, clear; excellent carbonation; thick and sticky white head; rocky and bumpy; rings of foam cascade down the glass. Light grainy nose; a bit of resinous quality with some mild fruity notes. Well-balanced lightly toasted malt base; a note of mild and zesty spiciness offset with some pine resin and a drop of floral presence; sublime hop bitterness. Medium-heavy body; gently coarse on the palate; a tad sticky with residual sugar sweetness; semi-dry throughout.

My sample is a little over five weeks old, bottled 06/09/20. It brings a strong showing at every level except for the smell. But the appearance and super-balanced and nuanced flavors are outstanding, and how it feels on the palate is phenomenal. A mighty fine beer...

Been a long time since I had a beer from Maine and I needed a few labels to balance out my collection, so off I went to ShopRite Liquors to get a fresh bottle of this! With so many beers of the sort being hop bombs or New England IPA's now, it was refreshing to have something like this that was nicely crafted, subtly hoppy, and oh-so-easy to kick back with on this mellow and relatively cool summer night!

Lovely appearance to this as this liquid was golden, bright, and subtly hazy with a nice, spongy head topping it off. A few well-defined rings started a little bit of the way down from the top as there were dotted splotches and a thick section of lingering foam below that. Loads of grass, apple, pear, and pepper in the nose as the taste was fall-like, softly dank, and nicely slick. Once this warmed up, some pine, deep citrus, and earthy tropical fruit entered in the mix as this had a really wonderful complexity that took it's time fully emerging.

A lot of that had to do with the alcohol - which was present, steady, and never overpowering. This was dry and finished like white wine while having a hint of grape in the aftertaste. All four of the hops used made their presence felt as this was varied and nuanced without any one of them dominating the other three. Dated 6/9 on the side of the bottle, this had me high on Maine and thankful that they held up well after all of these years!

A smooth, subtle and capable beer that becomes more outstanding with every moment it stays in your glass, The complexity of its four hop blend really comes to the fore--resinous Cascade competing with New England staples Citra and Simcoe for attention on your palate. Delicious!

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

A: Pours with a touch of haze, a golden/yellow color. A dense, long lasting white head forms. As that recedes, sticky lace is left all the way down.
S: Big aromatic hops fills the room as soon as I open this. Pineapple is strong here and becomes pungent and ripe. Peppery spice, orange and grapefruit zest. A bit of pine resin finishing everything off.
T: Pineapple, peppery spice, orange and grapefruit. All there in the taste as well. Just a hint of cracker like malt to dry everything out. Lingering bitterness as well.
M/O: A medium to full body. Excellent carbonation that is smooth and clean at the same time. Really easy to drink and come back to. This is excellent.

MBC knows how to do Pale Ales in all styles. No surprise this is excellent. I'll definitely have another one (not like that is a really original joke now ha).

3.77/5  rDev -12.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Description: Light golden, straw color and somewhat cloudy. Fluffy head that lingers a bit. Piney, dry smell with some underlying fruit although mild. Earthy notes as well. Flavor is bitter and lacking in floral or fruit with the exception of some grapefruit on the finish. There is some pine and even a little soapiness (?). Feel is thin and light-bodied with a dry finish.

Overall: 3.75 (This beer is good but I would not likely drink it again) This one did not do it for me; maybe 'another one' would. It wasn't a terrible beer, just a little off all around. Main issue was the bitterness without anything else to balance or moderate it and the feel was also a bit lighter than I would have liked

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

Look - bottled on 11/05/19, poured into an IPA glass. straw yellow in color, with a generous three+ finger head and plenty of lacing. beer is slightly cloudy, and does not appear to give off too much carbonation.
Smell - the hops are definitely there, mainly citrus and tropical fruits, and some grassy notes (and pepper?) as well. pleasant and complex.
Taste - definitely hop forward. in fact, hops presence completely dominates in this beer, giving off much more bitterness than an NE IPA, yet some juiciness as well. the malts on the other hand are light, and you can taste just a slight bit of it in the finish.
Feel - medium bodied, average carbonation, and moderate in strength at 7.0% ABV.
Overall - this is a fairly hoppy IPA that would be well appreciated by hopheads for its complexity, yet still approachable given its complex and tasty flavor profile. an interesting one, to say the least.

Excellent IPA. Very "crisp" mouthfeel. Some tropical fruits, a hint of pine, and nice bitterness.

Great beer, but IMO a bit overhyped. Drank this right after a fresh Zombie Dust, and the Zombie is in another league. Another One is certainly worth a taste, though.

1 pint .9oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottled 9/19/19, so about 7 weeks old.

Pale golden yellow body with a huge foamy, fluffy bright white head. Leaves layers of lacing. Light carbonation.

Nice hoppy aroma, with some citrus notes.

Good tasting drink. Clean, lightly bitter with some grapefruit. Good slightly sweet malt background. Somewhat dry.

Mouth around medium, finish a dry bittersweet wash, slightly favoring the bitter side.

Overall, another quality beer from Maine, sorry i only picked up a single.

DATE: October 25, 2019... OCCASION: back from Trunk or Treat at BAC, we watch the ending of the Battle Bots with another (pun) gift from Brad... GLASSWARE: Duvel tulip... pours an impressively murky body, golden and bright.... its snow-white head is thick, fluffy and laced around like a dolly.... a picture of what an IPA should look like... massive grapefruit--does grapefruit grow in Maine? it should after Maine Beer gets done--mango, lemon, peppercorn, immense pine all make this a hop-heavy delivery... its botanical allure is appreciable, with thick fruits and a bit of cracker to boot... this sips with the weight and reward of an IPA--yet it chews and buzzes as something bigger, something worth sipping... yet before you know it, the glass is empty... what a mixture of pine and grapefruit, juicy and seasoned with pepper... engaging, rewarding, and as perfect as a beer could be...if only this didn't have the price tag it did...

Pours into an impy nonic a very light lemon-yellow color with a bit of chill haze,a half finger bone white head atop.Tangerine and orange burst out in the nose,a little grass and leaf linger as well.Crushable fruity tangerine and overripe citrus on the palate,there is a slightly firm but somewhat sweet malt base,with just a tinge of resin in the back end.It's sweetish and fruit forward but the finish drys it out just enough to keep it in the 'high end' category for me.

Nose is fruity with citrus like tangerine. Clearly a New England style IPA with bitter hoppiness. Definitely taste the ABV and booziness in this beer so not "crushable"

Really started off strong with its appearance but I think this beer must have been too old. I was excited to find it online but when it arrived I noticed it had been bottled a year ago, and even drinking it as soon as possible didn’t help. Looks amazing, darker golden color with great mounds of fluffy white foamy head and rings of lingering lacing that lasted forever. Nice rocky pour. Smells surprisingly faintly of some melon, orange, lemon, pineapple and mango fruity hops along with some caramel, vanilla and stronger malt aromas. I think the hoppiness faded with time. Taste follows the nose, and again the malt was dominant. Smooth, slightly sticky, mild mouthfeel and good carbonation. I think this would have been a very strong IPA but unfortunately it was just too old.

Nice looking bright yellow with a great white head. A little too much clarity for my preferences, but who cares, bc everything else is amazing.

A fruity nose: peaches, mango, tangerine. The taste is big on the fruit as well, with more orange/tangerine, a nice sweetness, and a nice hoppy bitterness letting grapefruit come through. The finish is dry and clean, as advertised.

I find the mouthfeel quite pillowy, which I didn't expect from the looks.

This is really a great beer, a perfect summertime ipa to enjoy with a good meal. Maine beer co , thank you again!!!

Pint on a plastic shaker at Taco Trio.

Appearance: A cloudy apricot color. Possible foreshadowing flavors to come. Minimal head. Carb hard to gauge because of cloudiness.

Aroma: Tropical fruits, hops. Mango, grapefruit.

Taste: Fruit leads. Mango, grapefruit and, yes, apricot. I had this with some mango salsa and it almost tasted more like mangoes than mangoes. Pine. Hops. Big, fruity, tasty, juicy IPA.

Mouthfeel: Some booze makes this a sipper. Prickly, hoppy. Not “crushable” but a fun beer to pair with a burrito, as I’m doing now.

Overall: Very nice big, juicy IPA. I don’t know why it took me so long to try this. Not super different from MBC’s other big guys (Lunch, for ex.), but a really good IPA.

Thank you SomethingDaver!

Opaque orange with a street lamp glow. Billowing rocky white foam like a meringue rests stubbornly above, and coats the glass as it descends.

Lots of peach and a little bit of sugar on the nose. Nothing quite like a glazed peach. I'm getting a touch of classic pine on the end, but very faint.

Still getting a good amount of peach, but the flavor definitely strides towards citrus notes. Oranges, on the sweeter side like navals, with a peel of lime. The pine decides to be a bit more present in the sappy finish.

Soft feeling even with it's higher carbonation as if it were fully saturated in it. Though it has a sweet side, overall this has the classic aspects of a bitter IPA complete with a lip smacking dirtiness to it.

Yup. 2 for 2, for me. I can see why MBC gets so much love and attention. This here is a mighty fine beer.

Thanks again, Dave.

IMHO, an average IPA, hoppy, piney, and dry, but not worthy the $8 price point for 16 ounces. No date on bottle, so it was worth a try, however, I doubt I'd revisit with the cost, especially with so many others out there that are as good, if not better...again IMHO!

Happy I tried it, but at $6.50 for essentially a single serving, I don't think I'll have again. Dated March 12, drank April 17. Very, very solid APA. Smell is a little soapy, but overall a clearly well-crafted craft beverage. As someone who doesn't quite understand the pricing strategy for Sculpins, this takes the presumptuous cake. There's better beers, and there's better beers for less $$.
