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.

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.

Not a fan of the light yellow / straw color, but the thin white head is sticky an laces up nicely. Aroma is phenomenal - citrus and tropical fruit with a hint of malt. Flavor is really nice - not a hop bomb - with a delicate bitterness that's very flavorful, again with the tropical fruits, and some resin that magically doesn't wreck the palette. Finish is fairly clean, slightly bitter. Hope I can try again on a hot summer day.

Pours light yellow with a large head with medium retention and lots of lacing. It's downhill from there as the beer has limited flavor and is thin and overcarbonated. A poor example of an ipa especially given the price.

Long awaited. Poured into a teku, very fresh.

Looks pale yellow, slight haze. A sizable foamy head with plenty of lacing that sticks.

Nose has a floral touch, citrus (pineapple, orange peels maybe). Malty with a touch of hops.

Tastes like a well balanced IPA with hints of citrus, malts, and hops.

Feel is a medium bodied beer, solid foam, fruit on the finish.

Overall it's a solid beer. Not worth the hype maybe, but I would drink again. Made some big trades for the Maine beers and this may be a little overhyped. But I enjoyed it and recommend every do it if they can.

Pours a light yellow. Not much foam on top. Smell is hard to describe - but doesn't match the slightly bitter but smooth, lightly fruity flavor. Leaves a nice lace on the glass. Definitely going to have "Another One"!

32oz growler filled at Heinen's in Mentor, Ohio

Growler poured into a tulip. Pours yellow-golden with a subtle haze and a fluffy eggshell white head that fades leaving nice retention and nice lacing. The aromas are very nice, but not overpowering. Nice blend of citrus and tropical notes. Some pineapple and mango along with grapefruit and orange. Some cracker notes and some malts as well. The flavors are clean. Lots of lemon and lime. Some watermelon in the mix. Some grapefruit and pine as well. Subtle malt notes. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium-bodied. It feels thin with active carbonation. It's smooth and very easy to drink.

This is a solid IPA. I personally just wish the flavors popped a bit more. I'm interested in how this would be from a bottle.

Bought a few bottles at the brewery on 4/27. Pours a very light color with a slight haze...head disappeared almost immediately after pouring. Very mild citrus and hop floral aroma barely coming through...unfortunately not much else going on here. Taste follows suit leaving me wanting more. Mouthfeel is very carbonated and thin :/... I'm not sure whats up with this batch but I remember this beer being much better when I first tried it. I love Maine brewing so I will have "Another One" next time I visit the brewery.

Pours a pale straw in color with a hint of haze and a finger of short lived bone white head. Aroma is subdued; grapefruit, floral hops, bready malt, and a touch of pine. Taste is lightly citrusy with floral notes and a decent bready malt presence. Finish is fairly clean with and subtle underlying bitterness. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall a solid beer but I found the flavor a to be a bit subdued. I wasn't longing for Another One (see what I did there) not because of any real flaws in the beer but mostly because it was a bit uninteresting to me. Given the price point and format (way too much $$ for a 1 pint .9 fl. Oz. bottle) I likely won't be revisiting this soon.

Look: Hazy golden color, inch of white head, nice lacing, head dissipates but always leaves a film and a halo.
Smell: Earthy and citrusy hops.
Taste: Slightly grassy, citrusy bitterness, very light biscuity malts in the background, lingering bitterness.
Feel: On the drier side, light body, tingly carbonation.
Overall: A wonderful hop forward IPA, the taste is excellent, looks and smells tasty.

Fourth in a line of five Maine brews, this pours a light yellow, again with a designer's closet full of lacing!

Cucumber and grapefruit on the nose, with an addition of hay on the tongue.

This is less bitter and lighter than other Maine offerings. However, surprisingly for me, (since I'm not big on bitter), it's a little underwhelming that there isn't more to it.

Pale straw color draft pour into a tulip glass. Small tight bubbles quickly turn into some spotty lacing. Smell is citrus fruits, white grapefruit and light malt. Taste is fantastic grapefruit and citrus. I am not getting any pine in this one. Finishes super clean. Mouthfeel is light. I have heard great things about this beer and I have to say, it lives up to the hype. Super clean and very refreshing. I could hammer a ton of this if I had better access to it. Highly recommended.

Picked up 2 bottles at halftime bevs. Pricey stuff. But worth it. Pours hazy, citrus and pine notes. Drinks amazingly. A fine IPA, if spendy but grab one if you see it.

16.9 oz bottle in a nonic glass, very fresh.

It's a pale yellow color with rising bubbles through a soft haze. The 2F fluffy and durable white head leaves heavy lacing.

Earthy and floral hops, some citrus. Dry malt and leather.

Pine hop, some citrus, grapefruit. Light clean malts.

Very smooth medium body. Resinous oily hops, not overly bitter. Clean finish.

Drinkable, not boozy. The downside is that it's overpriced for a 16.9er so I'll do the right thing and spend my money on others.

had this on tap at Manhattan Pizza in Burlington VT. about a finger of head, nice retention, beautiful lacing left behind, probably the prettiest of any beer ive seen.

although no single flavor jumps out at you, the balance and complexity of this beer is amazing. ridiculously refreshing, ridiculously drinkable. surprising that its 7% abv because you dont get even a hint of alcohol, and it drinks almost like a beefed up session ale. nose is subtle, not in your face by any means - floral notes as well as pine and grassyness. taste is similar, with a very clean floral flavor that finishes with a nice bitterness.

overall I really really enjoy this beer... although ive had bigger IPAs that I would prefer to this beer in certain circumstances, for an everyday easy drinking beer, this one is tough to beat!!

Hazy, lots of suspended yeast, crisp and dry initial hoppiness gives way to the dankness of Simcoe andMosaic, and the lemony spiciness of Citra. A big YUM on this one...

Beautiful bright and vibrant golden orange. Hazy, and with a nice contrasting white, dense head. Great retention and sticky spotty lacing.

Wonderful pine and grass punch in the nice. Lighter citrus and floral notes in the tail. Bready malt.

Delicate citrus and pine flavor with a nice bready balance.

Clean and bubbly mouthfeel. Light body.

A great IPA. Really nice nose and a delicate, balanced flavor.

A truly mellow but world class beer that's quietly beautiful and very delicious. Like it's close cousin Lunch, the beer has pine, grass and citrus aroma. Nothing bombastic but it fills the air around the bottle. Balanced. Taste cascades from tropical fruit to citrus to earthy hay in a single sip. Crisp, dry and slightly bitter finish that doesn't linger a second longer than you'd like. Man, this is good. Subtle in its greatness.

Pint ish bottle. Pours straw gold with big foamy white head that lasts a long time, globs of lace. Orange citrusy aroma. Taste is very light and citrusy, orange peel, no maltiness to speak of. Medium mouthfeel. Easy drinking IPA that goes down way too easy for the abv, refreshing.
