2.95/5  rDev -30.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

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.

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

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.

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 a strong pine, grass and citrus aroma. 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.

L - hazy yellow straw, medium - big head after being poured into trillium tulip. whenever i see this kind of color in an IPA I start to get super excited. I know it's going to be floral and citrusy. so excited. 4.75
S - yes!!!! not bursting out of the seams smell but very distinctly floral & lightly citrusy. grapefruit & pine. 4.5
T - PERFECT IPA taste for my tastes. I can't even explain how much I love this beer. perfectly balanced IPA. This might be the favorite IPA i've had to date. I think I like it better than Lunch AND Dinner - although it's hard to compare to any doubles because it is clearly not a double IPA. honestly, 5/5 on taste!!
F - very nice feel, medium carbonation.
O - UNBELIEVABLE IPA. MBC is unreal. I love this brewery and am so thankful to have a couple good traders out of Maine/VT

Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle dated 10/20/15, today being 11/12/15. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-green-gold with a finger of dense white head that never completely goes away. Nice attractive lacing. It's a good-looking beer. I'm so used to a big piney/grapefruit initial smell on IPAs that this one took me by surprise. The first thing that hit my nose was a lovely floral scent, specifically rose petals, which I can't say I've ever encountered before. As it warms the smell becomes more tropical fruits and earthy herbs, but I still get the rose notes with the addition of lemon.

Taste is pretty extraordinary. Starts with the grapefruit plus orange, and unfolds in a complex progression of piney/fruity/earthy flavors, with a mildly bitter finish that is just slightly dry. Also in the finish is a piney, peppery herbal spiciness that's subtle but welcome.

Feel is near perfect. The beer looks thin but drinks beautifully, with excellent balance between carbonation and body. It's neither oily nor watery.

Maybe its lack of extremeness counts against it, but this is a world-class beer in my opinion, massively complex and satisfying. Personally, I like this more than Lunch.

pours a golden/yellow hazy color, head dissipates quickly but leaves a good lacing. bubbles seen floating up the glass. smell is very light but fruity, oranges, pineapples, tropical. taste follows the smell to a T, just more intense. tropical fruits, oranges, pineapples, mangos, but very crisp and dry. sweet, but not thick or sugary. carbonation is perfect, per usual with Maine Beer's bottle conditioning. great brew! not better or worse than Lunch, just different, comes down to whatever you are in the mood for.

I liked Weez a lot, but I always figured this would be more up my alley. Judging from the hazy straw color alone, it really looks promising. And it smells promising, too! This offers a great tropical fruit quality (like papaya and mango), yet it never fully sacrifices a balancing pine surge or a touch of malt (even though it's really faint at best here). The flavor easily lives up to the nose: it opens with healthy mango and papaya flavors and ends slightly bitter. As I drink more of this, some of the malt sweetness pops up, giving a nice sugar cookie character the blends with the hoppiness beautifully. And also as I drink more of this, it just seems to get better and better with each sip. It feels damn-near perfect on the palate - creamy, soft, dry, yet devoid of harsh bitterness. This might even be better than Lunch, and that's very high praise coming from yours truly.

4.41/5: Yeah, I want another one of these right now

L: Hazy gold with a full, creamy white head.
S: Soft citrus smells with a hint of tropical fruit. There is also a hint of cat pee in there, which is something I've heard other reviewers mention about beers (especially with citra) but have never really experienced.
T: Nice mellow citrus flavors--grapefruit mostly. The flavors are very delicate, which makes this a unique and special beer. The finish is a little weak and almost abrupt. You get these great taste up front and then it's cut off by an odd dryness.
F: Such a nice beer to drink. It's soft and easy on the palate. The balance is very nice, but I'd worry about this beer becoming too sweet if it wasn't extremely fresh.
O:This an outstanding IPA. I know some folks like this better than Lunch, but I don't quite think it's on that level. Nevertheless, I can't wait to drink it again.

A: This poured a clear light gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like fresh grapefruit, with a little herbal hops and honey malt.
T: It tasted like bitter grapefruit and herbal hops, with some sweet honey malt. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a nice IPA, with enjoyable but one dimensional scent and taste. The body was ok, and the finish was pretty smooth, so it was easy to drink. Nothing really special about this brew, in today's IPA market. Solid, but forgettable.

A very nice brew from Maine. Being a hophead who leans more toward the ctrus type hop flavors I found this to be nice and flavorful, but not having quite the hop punch that I typically revel in. This brew was remarkably balanced and very drinkable. Being that they are rather pricey, more than one in a great while is an expenditure I cannot reconcile. Definitely a special occasion type brew for me.
