BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Maine Beer Company
Maine, United States
mainebeercompany.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Hops – Warrior, Cascade, Citra, Simcoe

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high off white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge of the glass and lots of lacing down the sides.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of mango and pineapple are present in the nose along with notes of grapefruit and hints of pine resin.
T: The taste is nearly identical to the smell; the only difference is that he grapefruit flavors are a bit stronger. There is just about a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is an excellent representation of the style. Even though it uses the same hops as Weez, it's a lot better because the lighter malt profile really allows the different hop aromas and flavors to shine through.

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.

Bottle dated 03 24 14.

Slightly dull and hazy golden orange color, occasional visible carb trails, creamy head that lasts a good while, leaving behind sheets of lace in the glass.

Aroma is mainly floral with some trace citrusy grapefruit elements.

Taste has a nice hop punch, equally balanced with bready pale malt. Lingering grapefruit and a slight tropical mango note that gets lost underneath a firm grassy bitterness that lingers. Light to medium bodied, easy drinking. It's good, as all Maine beers are, but not the standout from the pack that Mo and Lunch are.

Bottle: Poured a pale yellow color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of floral grassy hops notes with light citrusy notes is quite pleasant. Taste is a great mix of citrusy hops notes with some grassy/green notes with light residuals sugar notes and minimal bitterness. Body is about average with good carbonation. Another super IPA from a great brewery.

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.

Maine Beer Company "Another One"
16.9 fl. oz. brown glass bottle, "...born on... 05/01/18" and sampled on 05/23/18
$6.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Look: Slightly hazy straw-gold body beneath a full head of creamy white foam. Excellent head retention and lacing.
Smell: Citrusy with soft lemon, delicate grapefruit, sublime orange, and otherwise maybe even more fruity with passionfruit and berries. Lightly sweet and grainy malt. Piney and earthy, and mildly resinous. It's not a "hit you over the head" aroma but it's very nicely balanced and welcoming, and actually fairly complex.
Taste: As the aroma suggests with perhaps a little bit more berry-like character. Just as balanced as the aroma, including a newly introduced firm bitterness that brings it to a dry, gently bitter conclusion with citrus and fruit and earthiness and pine lingering.
Feel: Medium bodied but with a slight dextrinous side, and soft and smooth with a seemingly natural bottle-conditioned carbonation that's moderate to median.
Overall: Enjoyed slightly warm this reminded me very much of an English ale done up as an American IPA - they exist, and I've sampled them via cask in Liverpool, but never one quite so nicely balanced. Really quite superb. Well worth the coin, and well worth seeking out. A great beer to relax with.

Bottled March 25, 2014. Opened April 3, 2014.

A - A stunning IPA. Thick, foamy towering white head with outrageous lace and retention. Light haze on a wheat gold body.

S - Bright citrus, pine, white bread, and wood with an edge of cilantro.

T - Mellow. Almost a pale ale to Maine's Lunch IPA. Net sweet and malt forward; bread crust, biscuit, and a touch of toffee. Bitter greens and black pepper finish.

M - Soft medium body with nice carbonation.

O - Smooth and sessionable. Drinks a lot like the session IPA's that are currently in vogue; quite an accomplishment at 7%.
