BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

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.

16.9oz bottle poured into a Pilsner glass.

Appearance
Cloudy gold with 2 fingers of white head. Excellent retention with moderate-heavy carbonation.

Nose
Papaya, pineapple and tangerine.

Taste
Papaya rind, tangerine pith and drops of pineapple. Really mellow bready malt character. Finishes with touches of pine and some spicy rye notes.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, smooth and oily.

Overall
What sets this apart is it's mellow characteristics as well as being more on the rindy/pithy side. I still prefer Lunch, or even Peeper or MO, to this one though.

16.9 oz. bottle poured into Allagash. Bottled exactly one month ago, 6/11/13. Purchased from the brewery.

A - Pours a very light golden color with a bit of chill haze. Big dome of head sits atop the body, peaking in the center. Paints the walls of the glass with lacing.

S - Smells of fresh floral and citrus hops. Some ginger along with wet grain and light cracker malts. The more I sniff, the more grapefruit I pick up. Smells like a good summer afternoon beer.

T - Light and zesty flavor. Lemondrops, mango, and a little bit of white bread malt to balance. I wouldn't consider this bitter, but there is a pronounced hop flavor. Slight astringency on the finish. I could drink several of these without trouble.

M - The body is pretty light and the carbonation is tingly. Refreshing with a dry finish.

O - Another One showcases floral and citrus hops. A very enjoyable summertime beer with high drinkability. The aroma of this beer is more impressive than the taste, but neither is lacking. I do wish there was a bit more body, as it drinks a bit thin. I do wish they would package their beer in 4 or 6 packs, rather than the $5-6 16oz. bottles. It would turn a beer like this into a great semi-session option (to say nothing of Zoe, Mo, and Peeper). The dark counterpart, Weez (same hops, different malts) review is to follow.

500ml bottle poured into a Maine Beer Co Wine Glass.

The beer pours a hazy golden color, hues of straw and orange with a nice finger or so of soapy, white head that has great retention and leaves a great network of soapy lace behind. The aroma is pleasant, very grassy with some nice light citrus and fruit with a touch of pine and sweet malt. The flavors are right in line, lots of grassy hops, slightly bitter pine, tangy citrus and a crisp hop spice with sweet pale malt. The body is nice, moderate carbonation that is very smooth, coats the mouth well and finishes with a great dry kick.

Verdict: A really delightful IPA from Maine Beer Co. Light, dry, refreshing and sure to quench any hop heads thirst. The balance of flavors is wonderful, although perhaps it could pack a bit more of a punch.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Slight chill haze on a bright gold. Head is super bright-white and starts off pillowy and massive. Drops to a creamy clumpy wispy cap. Some splotches of lacing.

Smell: Pine and tangerine. Massively floral. A hint of peach. Loaded with citrus. Grapefruit pith and skin. Earthy with a slight hop spiciness. A nice depth of hops. Malts are light and bready. Some biscuit. Some marmalade and a bit of spearmint. Evergreen with some woody elements.

Taste: Light slightly bready malt. Some caramelized malt sweetness. Oily pine and grapefruit rind. Some backing tropical elements. A bit more earthy and dank than the nose. Some backing hop spiciness. Leafy. A bit dirty. Warming mutes everything a bit. Some watery malts. Lingering pine bitterness. Gets super floral too.

Mouthfeel: On the light side of medium. Moderate carbonation, but barely. A bit dry on the back with a smooth, but watery, start.

Overall: Not positive I'll have another.

Not the best showing from MBC. A solid IPA, but Weez was a bit more exciting overall. I'd drink it again, but not if I had to buy it.

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

A: Pours a lighter yellow with a full, thick head. Chunks of lacing present on the glass.

S: Grassy, spicy hop aroma.

T: More grassy flavors, subtle pine. Malting is very light and not the hero as a nice bitter flavor dominates front to back.

M: Creamy, nice feel on the tongue and the back of the mouth.

O: Really nice IPA. Tastes great on a hot afternoon.

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.

Another One pours a hazy straw yellow with a big, rocky head on top. The foam fades away slowly leaving a thick coating of lace on the glass.

The aroma has strong notes of grapefruit citrus, pine, tropical fruit and some light cereal malt.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is smooth, somewhat watery with mild carbonation. The flavor begins with grapefruit citrus, lemon rind and mango. There's a nice light cereal malt balance in the background. It finishes moderately bitter with some hoppy floral notes. Once gone the bitterness and citrus lingers on the palate.

This is an easy drinking beer that's not too bitter. Very tasty with well balanced hops.

A bottle at Dave's pad...

A: Very light colored. Typical heavy foam head (IMO over carbed)

S: Pine/floral/citrus. Very nice aromatics

T: Certainly a tasty IPA. I do wish there was a touch more body to the malt to support, but prefer this approach to the typical West-Coast way of adding crystal malt. Hops meld to offer pine/slight dank citrus and floral flavors. Assertive

M: As mentioned, a tad light

O: Totally solid and way better than most. The bar is very high for MBC so I wouldn't say it's one of their best but certainly worthy.
