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.

L - hazy yellow straw, medium - big head after being poured into trillium tulip. whenever i see this kind of color in an IPA I start to get super excited. I know it's going to be floral and citrusy. so excited. 4.75
S - yes!!!! not bursting out of the seams smell but very distinctly floral & lightly citrusy. grapefruit & pine. 4.5
T - PERFECT IPA taste for my tastes. I can't even explain how much I love this beer. perfectly balanced IPA. This might be the favorite IPA i've had to date. I think I like it better than Lunch AND Dinner - although it's hard to compare to any doubles because it is clearly not a double IPA. honestly, 5/5 on taste!!
F - very nice feel, medium carbonation.
O - UNBELIEVABLE IPA. MBC is unreal. I love this brewery and am so thankful to have a couple good traders out of Maine/VT

500ml bottle. Given the child-related themes of the other Maine beers, I kind of thought that this one's name was right in line. I guess it's actually more beer-related than that - mea culpa.

This beer pours a rather cloudy, pale golden yellow hue, with three fat fingers of puffy, and mostly bubbly off-white head, which leaves some pervasive steampunk/chainlink lace around the glass as it slowly bleeds off.

It smells of sharp grapefruit, lemon, and underripe orange rind, a certain chalky flintiness, a touch of cat piss, dry pine needles, crackery (think bare saltines) pale malt, and further underdeveloped tropical fruit notes. The taste is still redolent of gritty grapefruit, orange, and lemon-lime pith, with a now stronger bready, somewhat yeasty, and still crackery pale malt backbone - i.e. not a competitor, more of a sanity check - a consistent stoniness, and leafy, piney, and kind of acrid floral hops.

The bubbles are pretty tight and edgy for the most part, the body just on the light side of medium weight, and hard to describe as smooth - the hops generally scratching out that particular aspiration. It finishes dry, dry, dry - that gritty stoniness re-appearing to bolster the still heady citrus, pine, and floral bittering hops.

Yes, this is unbalanced, yes, the malt is merely a blip on the hop bill's radar, and yes, I freaking love it! Somehow, this isn't all that much of a tongue-scraping instance of such hop-forward offerings - despite the bitter, fruity, and floral characters, there's a lulling, moderating attractiveness beyond it all. Note, I didn't say 'malt', mostly because I'm just not altogether certain that's what it is.

Bottled on 09-03-13

Pours a slightly hazy burnt orange color with golden yellow edges and a two finger frothy, off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting cap/ring. The glass is left completely coated with soapy lacing. Great looking beer!

Dank floral hop aroma with earthy pine and resinous oils countered by sweet tropical/citrus fruit notes and a pale malt backbone. Grassy and earthy with pine sap, spruce tip and dank buds followed by grapefruit, pineapple, mango and orange peel sweetness. Subtle pale malt presence with bread, biscuit and cracker.

On the fuller end of medium with a slightly creamy texture and some tight carbonation. There's a very prominent dry, bitter hop presence that lingers over the sweeter notes, pale malt and boozy heat into a dry finish. Unfortunately, the hop profile isn't as strong or complex as the nose suggests. Lots of resinous, earthy bitterness up front but it falls off mid-palate and there's a lack of citrus/tropical fruit sweetness balancing things out. The malt presence is stronger than expected with strong biscuit and graham cracker flavor. This beer is only 7% but there's a lot of alcohol in the finish. Not really any heat, but there's a lot of boozy sweetness.

Overall, this was a decent beer but the hop flavor is a bit weak and one dimensional. There's also something slightly off about the mouthfeel. It looks and smells really good but the flavor doesn't like up to expectation.

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

Two plus fingers of bleached white foam, very delicately constructed and airy, uneven surface and no more than average retention, the lacing forms wide, mottled streaks which stick well before dissolving in place. Brightly yellow colored liquid, transparent, lots of active bubbles but dispersed and not in beads. The nose displays a genteel directness, focused tangerine, lemon, white grapefruit citrus neither sweet nor sour, lowkey florality yields to more peppery, biscuity, and piney notes, not especially leafy but hops dominated, the apricot, pineapple, mango fruit scents have tang and assist the general oily texture in your nostrils. Medium-bodied, remarkable smoothness given its overall dryness. Loaded with orange, tangerine and lemon citrus zest. Here the floral side spreads out further, at times comes close to being minty in addition to the piney qualities. White pepper, ginger and clove bring dimension, there’s really no overtly “sweet” element to be found. The carbonation is fine and pinpoint yet no wimp. Shows balance in a graceful, Fred Astaire like manner. Refreshing for how it does not seek to impress you with all kinds of fireworks.

considering I have had Maine brewing beers in the past - i was very dissappointed with this one. I xpected something much better after having "Lunch" and was completely let down. It looked great when poored but that was completely ruined by the initial taste. Smell was actually decent, but obviously a huge let down.

Poured a hazy yellow orange with a decent head that quickly dissipated. The aroma was a lot weaker than its cousin "Lunch". Faint hints of citrus and a medium hop floral smell. The taste was not as hoppy as I like, ... disappointing in fact. Slight pine flavor, some citrus, and a weak hop bite. The aftertaste was smooth but uninspiring. I will not be spending another $6.25 for a bottle of this average brew. With so many great beers available for a lot less, Maine Beer Company beers sit on the shelf at our local store for weeks.

Drank from a 1 pint .9 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar, Portland, ME
Served in a pint glass

Impressive appearance. The beer poured a super pale and nearly crystal clear golden color. An inch tall, fluffy, creamy, bright white crown topped the liquid. The head slowly dropped to a lasting cap of froth. Streaky lacing coated the glass.

The nose was crisp, bright and citrusy. Hoppy but not super aromatic for the style. Grapefruit was most noticeable. Lemony and slightly grassy. The intensity of the aroma seemed more akin to your average pale ale than an IPA. The nose did however became a bit stronger and slightly sweeter with time. A touch of tropical fruitiness appeared as well. Mango was most detectible.

The flavor profile was hoppy, bitter and completely unbalanced. Ultra crisp and dry. White grapefruit dominated. Very rind-like. Tart, lemony notes also came through strong. The snappy, lingering finish was uber dry, pithy and bitter and contained loads of pine needles and grapefruit rind.

The mouthfeel was very light and highly effervescent. Definitely quite thin for the style and somewhat over carbonated. As the beer sat, the carbonation settled a bit and the beer turned slightly softer on the palate.

While it seems that most New England/Maine-style IPAs are rich and fruity with a robust yet rounded flavor profile, Another One is a shockingly dry, pithy and bitter hop bomb in the vein of many old school, West Coast-style pale ales and IPAs. Although some might enjoy this, in my opinion it lacks both depth and balance.

enjoyed from the 500ml with tenderbranson69 poured chilled in a tulip.

The color is lightly hazed golden with 3 fingers of eggshell head which retains well, wavy lace clings with a average sized bead. The smell is dank, fruity...juicy citrus and with lots of herbal aroma with a mild pine accent. The feel is great almost perfect with moderate bitterness and light astringency with resinous hop texture and moderately high carbonation level with a very dry yet still a bit sweetness in the finish with low alcohol influence.

The taste is great with tons of hop flavor, juicy and dank with moderate tropical elements with a nice citrus taste, lemon, and a lime-like flavor with a clementine type mild sweetness with an almost pineapple like acidity yet pretty light malt, the Hops are the star of this ale. Overall I can't think of many I would rather have - a true hop nectar and I would recommend this to anyone, not just fans of hoppy beers.

It pours out in a hazy yellow gold color.

The aroma is just super hoppy and fresh. There’s floral, pineapple, tropical fruit, tons of sweet citrus. Its just a vibrant and big aroma.

The flavor follows on the aroma with not as much of a pronounced and obvious fruit. Clearly the Cirta is there with a light herbacious bitterness on the back.

The malt and tons of carbonation do this beer really well. I had this super fresh, only 2-3 weeks old and it really is a treat.

This is the beer to have, over Lunch. Hype goes to this one! This is a Citra bomb!

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle dated 9/20/16 into a tulip glass.

Once the condensation leaves, it is a mostly clear, pale/dull yellow-gold. It has a fairly thick bright white soapy head. Pretty good retention with some lacing.

Smells like cat piss, grapefruit, green lemongrass, orange, and mango with some very light grains.

There are some spicy hops up front that transition into mandarin orange/tangerine, pineapple, pithy grapefruit, earthy/musty mango, papaya, and apricot, very green leafy and piney hops, and a bit of pink bubble gum flavor. The malts are very light, like oyster crackers or croutons. Everything is very crisp and clean and really doesn't leave much of a lingering taste outside of some pineapple and grapefruit.

Outside of being a bit drying/cotton mouth feeling, the body is outstanding. Light and fluffy, dance on your tongue kind of feel

An outstanding IPA. Probably one of my top 3 Maine brews.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

From a bottle that has 082515 on the label, so I'm drinking this a little over three weeks after it was bottled.

Appearance: It has a very light cloudy golden body. It looks much lighter than the average IPA color. There is a good sized pure white fluffy head. Good lacing on the glass.

Aroma: It has a very nice light tangerine aroma.

Taste: Right off the bat I notice a significantly low bitterness. There is a bit of orange pith flavor and a touch of pine off in the distance. It's a fairly average tasting IPA with lower than average bitterness. No alcohol presence which is nice.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel suffers a bit from the lack of bitterness. It just feels a bit watered down and empty with an off-dry finish.

Overall: It is an average IPA that falls on the weaker side of bitterness which isn't a problem itself, but it leaves a void that is not filled. It leaves a few question marks hanging in the air without asserting any sort of unique character or obvious direction. I probably wouldn't pick it up again. I might buy it if I see it on draft but I'm not holding my breath given that this is just over three weeks old.

Bottled 09/03/13. (same as Weez)

Despite a gentle pour it yields a huge fluffy 2 finger head that's almost as large add the pour of beer, fades slowly with lots of nice lacing, a bit hazy golden yellow color with nice bubbles streaming up.

Nose nice fresh hops, quite floral with hints of grassy, then musty hop resin, fresh tropical fruit, nice citrus, little tangerine and grapefruit pith, mild peach like stone fruit too, and even a hint of melon, light orange rind, faint hint of grainy malt and wheat.

Taste is nice too, lots of fresh hops again, little floral, nice resin, light musty, lots of tropical fruit with mild passion fruit and grapefruit pith, mild citrus little tangerine and rind bitterness, nice fruity juicy flavor like some fruit, it has an Amarillo hop character I think. Under that is a mild wheat character, little toasty and grainy malt, hint banana, but more like a kicked up gumball head. The hops turn spicy and quite bitter as it moves towards the dry finish, quite bitter grapefruit pith lingering, bit more wheat, juicy fruit hops too.

Mouth us med bod, nice fluffy carb.

Overall quite interesting, but quite as good as lunch but a different beast that is quite nice, great hops, light wheat base to juxtapose it, juicy abd drinkable with a great bitterness.

After tasting Maine brewing's LUNCH I had high expectations for this beer, and I have to say it was a disappointment. Solid golden thick coloration, but the mouth feel was chalking and the finish left and odd aftertaste, mild hop flavor. Small dragonfruit mid, did not match the tangelo aroma.

Bottled 06/11/2013

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium to dark golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some pale orange + apricot highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy off-white head that very slowly reduces to a medium sized finger tall cap towards the center of the beer with a thick film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of tropical fruit hops (I detect some mango and pineapple along with hint of peach) along with moderate aromas of citrus/tangerine/orange hops and just a hint of pine hops.

T: Compared with the smell, the overall flavor of this beer is less intense. Upfront there are some light flavors of biscuit malts with very light amounts of sweetness which is followed by some slightly heavier than moderate flavors of hops - tropical/pineapple/mango/peach and citrus/tangerine. Light hints of a spicy yeast and a light amount of lingering bitterness in the finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Faint hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Even though this beer has a modest ABV (7.0 %), it drinks like a session IPA in that it is really easy to drink. Very enjoyable with wonderful hop aromas and pleasant albeit a little light flavors. Pretty well balanced between the malt sweetness and hop bitterness.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a quite hazy orange color with a thick and billowy-cloudy white head. The head has a great level of retention, very slowly fading over time to leave a nice level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is big of a sweet citrus smell. The sweet citrus was a nice mix of a sweeter grapefruit aroma as well as a good showing of a tangerine sweetness. Some other lighter bready aromas were there as well with some nice smells of a tropical fruit nature of mango and pineapple mixed within. With some lighter grassy hop aromas rounding out the smell, the overall aroma ends up being quite fruity and sweet.

Taste – The taste begins much unlike the nose would have suggested. It begins very dry with a bit of a biscuit malt flavor mixed with a moderate showing of a grapefruit hop. There is a hint of a tangerine sweetness upfront that very quickly decays. Some light tastes of a grainy wheat flavor develop soon after the initial taste with some more hop flavors of a grassy nature later coming to the tongue. While this occurs so too does the biscuit transition to a more cracker like flavor, with an even drier flavor overall. With more grapefruit hop and some light herbal flavors coming to the tongue at the very end, a very crisp and dry hopped taste is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. Both are rather nice for blending the hop flavors with the moderate malt and fruit profile all while complementing well the very crisp taste of the brew.

Overall – A rather tasty, crisp, and dry, but nicely hopped and still somewhat balanced IPA. Overall a quite enjoyable brew.
