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.

4.17/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bottled 01/03/17, so about 3 weeks old.

Golden straw color with a huge fluffy white head. Plenty of the usual suspects in the nose and flavor. Lots of delicious fruit, pine, and grassy/barny character. A bit of booze, which is surprising. A great beer but feels and tastes more like a Pale Ale. Nice finish and smooth as anything, but a bit disappointing/underwhelming. Hadn't tried a Maine Beer brew in a while because of the price and I think I'll take another break from them. $7 for this pint-sized bottle and I still don't understand how their prices haven't come down with the vast increase in their scale. Obnoxious, really.

one common trend i'm finding w/ all of Maine's beers is that they must be had on tap! i find a complete night and day difference in taste between their beers coming out of the bottle vs when having on tap. this one is no exception to the finding and IS a world-class ipa. only when it's on tap though.

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

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.

Pours golden with white head. It's as advertised, dry and bitter, but super clean. It doesn't have too much sweetness like some West Coast or Midwest IPAs and it's not overly bitter. It has nice balance. Another One is incredibly refreshing and to me, this is the best IPA in the MBC lineup.

Had this one on tap at the taproom.

A: Pours a hazy, yellowish-orange to golden color. Short, foamy, white head with minimal retention. Thick white lacing throughout.

S: Citrus and tropical fruit notes accompanied by earthy and piney hop undertones. Milder floral notes as well.

T: Strong citrus notes of grapefruit, lemon, and orange rind accompanied by piney hop bitterness. Milder notes of tropical fruits and melons.

F: Light bodied, smooth, and crisp with good carbonation. Slightly dry.

O: Overall, a great IPA. Love the citrus and hop bitterness on this one, which are perfectly balanced with the mild tropical fruit notes. Light and very drinkable for 7% ABV.

Excellent IPA.

Yet again another fantastic beer from MBC. Someone recently described it as easy drinking like MO, but with the hop profile of dinner. I wouldn't go that far, but it is close. It appears lemony with ample white foam. It smells of a fresh flower bouquet and the taste is similar with some tropical fruit. The mouthfeel is smooth with some hoppy bitter bite. Overall, this is just fantastic and I wish I had more.

This is a wonderful lighter IPA. It is smooth, more fruity than flowery. The hops are there, but not overpowering. It comes across as a session, but the ABV says otherwise... :)

Look: hazy, pale/straw.
Smell: Juicy tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, lemon. Pours with a large white head, falls away quickly.
Taste: Juicy, but retains a light pine.
Feel: silky, with a little resinous/astringent character. Finishes smoothly. Light mouthfeel, which I think is advantageous for this style.
O: Really enjoy this beer. Poured into oversized snifter, 7 day old bottle down here in SC. Pretty awesome. Meets my desire for a juice bomb, but keeps a nice bite/pine character. Silky feel, wonderful nose. Huge fan of this light bodied, hop forward IPA.

Bottled 7/12, poured into nonic pint. Super cloudy gold yellow, very foamy and very active with milkshake style lacing. Lemonish hoppiness scents. Hoppy and citrusy taste with slight malt notes and a very mild bitter tang in the back. Nice refreshing feel. Great beer.

Tons of tropical fruits and grass on the nose; mostly papaya. Taste is a mix of citrus and pine with some floral notes; there is a little bit of the tropical character you get on the nose but not much. Quite dry and very bitter finish. Medium body with great carbonation. Overall, very good if you like bitter beers; drinks like an old school east-coast IPA with a fruity twist.

22 oz bottle. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head, nice lacing and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and bready malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Citrusy hops, bready malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long, dry. Another great brew from MB.

My favorite Maine Beer offering (I've yet to try Dinner). Pours a beautiful golden/yellow color. Smell is intense pine. Great balance between pine, citrus and bitterness on the palate. Love it.

For as hoppy as this beer is, it lacks the punch it should have. The smell is light and it tastes the same, but at 7%abv it shouldn't taste this way. It just lacks body, doesn't taste like a fully developed beer. It's good, don't get me wrong, but it tastes like a session or pale ale. I expected a lot more from another one

Bottle dated June 21, poured into Lawson's tulip glass.

L: Hazy golden color. 3F head with good retention, lots of sticky lacing and a cap.

S: Light grapefruit, pineapple, and mango, pine.

T: Fairly juicy, grapefruit, lemon peel, less tropical and more citrus in the taste than nose. Light malts. Piney finish, not very bitter.

F: Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, good balance and construction, good drying on palate that doesn't allow bitterness to overlinger.

O: Really nice IPA. Clean and crisp. Interesting resemblance to Weez in the up-front. Definitely too much ABV to be sessionable, but you'll want to drink more.

Bottle to tulip. Straw colored with very little head. Almost a fresh-cut grass nose. Well balanced and tasty as all MBC brews are. Hoppy yet somehow crisp and refreshing.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter. Enjoyed a week after bottling.
Pours a nice straw color with one finger of head, excellent clarity.
Aromas are primarily lemon, with some good wet hops present.
Flavor also has lots of good lemon citrus, not sweet or juicy...very quenching here. No alcohol present.
Mouthfeel was nice for a quenching beer.
Overall, a tasty and very drinkable IPA.

Bottle dated 05/24/16

Pours super hazy golden yellow with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells like big pineapple, passionfruit, musty guava, some mango, orange and grapefruit citrus, mild biscuity cracker malt, with dank earthy grass and pine. Tastes like fresh passionfruit, pineapple, guava, underripe mango, subtle peach, orange and grapefruit citrus rind, some grainy biscuit malt, with fresh pine and dank earthy grass. Feels thick, medium bodied, creamy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really great IPA.

poured into a snifter from bottle. looks nice hazy yellow with creamy foamy head that lays for a while. nose is nice lemon. pineapple some lemon rind and floral notes. mouthfeel is medium and compliments the beer well. seems to be nothing much going on front end here. by mid to end palate I seem to be getting more intense lemon and some floral notes. overall a good beer but lacks in overall punch from start to finish. I prefer lunch tenfold. I would not seek out but would not turn down. I guess I like my ipas a little more harsh. this is easy drinking and refreshing.

The best beer I drank at the brewery (Dinner was not available). Made the 20 min out of the way drive worth while. Would definitely drink again, but all Maine Beer Co. beers are overpriced, can get better beers elsewhere for much less.

Had at Moxie in Madison on Friday night on tap. Into a pilsner-like glass it comes out a bright yellow color, very subtle haze, and a thin white head that fades fast and doesn't leave much lacing.

Pretty bright aroma, some sweet malts with a pronounced hoppiness. Flavor is cracker malts, bitter middle with a significant hop flavor. Hops are herbal, grassy, some light citrus, finishes with some oily resin. Dry finish and hints of hops and honey lead to an overall balanced beer.

Wasn't blown away by this one, I would definitely put Lunch and Mo up higher on my list. It is a very solid IPA and would work wonders in the summer heat, but not as good as some reviews here.

Very good, but immediately wished I had ordered the Wormtown Be Hoppy. This just didn't pack the flavor punch. Sure is hoppy. At $10 for a draft, expected more.

Extremely light in color, yellowish gold with ample bright white head. Excellent retention. Aroma is citrus, grass, hay, earthy. The taste follows, with bitter, resinous qualities as well. The body is medium-light with moderate-high carbonation. One of my favorite IPAs.

Yum! Maine can do no wrong.
Poured from a bottle -- just two weeks after its bottle dates. Hazy straw color, with a tinge of green (I swear). Foam settles down quickly leaving behind nice lacing. Smell is apricot and grass, signaling the flavor which expands to include a bit of biscuit and pineapple, but not the least bit sticky. Finishes with a hint of bitter, dry. Feel is light, silk, hint of carbonation. LOVE this beer.

I shouldn't be surprised by this after Dinner, but wow. I need to try all MBC offerings because this once again blew my mind. Beautiful, glowing, light haze, fluffy head. Aroma of hay and melon. Taste just levels of citrus, melon and stunning hops, puckery finish.
