Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, hazy, caramel-yellow coloring with a tall, frothy, chunky, bright white head of a solid inch and a half. Aromas are abundant, and you can smell this thing right off the initial pour. Wow. Very pungent with resiny hops profiles, with mango and tart citrus highlights balancing. Richly sweet and very well blended. Flavors are roasted initially, with tropical fruit sweetness forming a backbone to support a toasty, slightly char highlight and peppery, bitter hops. Hops are first and foremost in this bad boy, but there is a subtle biscuit profile throughout the brew, as well. Smooth and robust, with a dry edge from the carbonation and hops level. The aftertaste is a bitter sweet blend, with grapefruit and mango providing the sweetness to the roasted, toasted, and bitter hops. The finish is bitter and tangy at the same time, slightly drying, with a citrus linger. Solid IPA.

Huge thanks to smokeypeat for sending me this one - the guy hooks it up like no other. Another One pours the color of honey and is almost completely opaque, though the haze appears softer than typical for an unfiltered IPA. As the stark white, pillow head slowly settles, it leaves very nice rings of lacing that traverse at least half the glass.

I take a whiff and I'm very pleasantly surprised. I honestly didn't know what to expect from this beer at all, but one sniff in and I'm already liking the way things are going. Incredibly hop-centric; pines, leaves, lightly floral, and very "wet" and juicy. The beer was bottled 6/11/2013, so this sucker is only a few weeks old.

Citrus character from the hops are huge, too, with tons of grapefruit, lemon zest, and orange rind. We had this beer right before a bottle of Kuhnhenn's "TRIPA" (an amped up version of DRIPA) and the aromas were very similar. Another One was perhaps less citrusy, but also less malty-sweet and more generous in terms of hop appreciation.

An oily and pungent bitterness strikes quickly within the first moments of each sip and comes riding on the back of a big ol' flavorful hop bill. Leafy, piney, and just mildly resinous, the hops taste nearly as wet and fresh as they smelled. A slight onion-like note is appreciated and drives for more complexity in an already impressive brew.

Orange rind and grapefruit pith seem like perfect descriptors here. The fruity aspect isn't quite as soft and sweet as the aroma would make it seem, rather they head down the path of unforgiving bitterness. I've gotta say, though, it's not a bad thing at all. Very mild bready malts are noticeable in the finish, but otherwise are buried under the hop shelter.

Great finish on this, with a crisp, wet, and slick mouth feel. Medium bodied, plenty of carbonation. This was my first Maine Brewing beer, and if this is any indication of how they handle IPAs, then I need to get Lunch in my face, pronto. Very enjoyable, and according to the rating on many websites, under-appreciated in my opinion.
